First the good... The area & view.
Now the bad, we have rented numerous homes and apartments all over the world. This apartment was by far of the lowest quality. Poor housekeeping, Cheap IKEA furnishings, 2 thin towels, sheets with holes, television doesn't have cable, so if you don't speak the language, your cut off from the world. The kitchen ( the reason we prefer apartments over hotels ), was horrible. Low quality cookware, a cheap electric stove ( every other European home we've rented had induction stoves ), the only knife for food prep was a bread knife, seriously one knife, a couple cheap plastic utensils , and a $10.00 coffee maker. I used the kitchen once, having to use 3 tiny sauce pans to boil enough water for pasta. There were no sponges, rags for clean up, I had to go out and purchase those myself.
The bathroom sink, the shower, and the kitchen sink had super slow drainage, leaving nasty residue if you happen to shave or do any basic clean up. There were no wash cloths provided, we had to purchase those our selves.
The floors are plastic laminate , and all the furnishings are plastic as well. My dorm room was more luxurious and better equipped then this place. The building seems to be dominated by offices , so there's no residential charm at all.
Passeig de Gracia is the main commercial avenue of Barcelona. Full of luxury stores and 5-star hotels, Passeig de Gracia is often compared to New York's Fifth Avenue or Paris' Champs Elysées
