We were planning to rent an apartment for a week in Barcelona. We went back and forth with agents a bit but became concerned when we got a different description of a neighborhood from the agents and from the posts on the Forums. We were about to give up and book a hotel when in some search "Suites Avenue" popped up. It's a silly name, I think, but a wonderful place to stay. The price was competitive with decent apartments and, lo and behold, these are apartments! This is really a residential hotel so don't expect full touristic hotel services but you have your own luxurious apartment, beautifully appointed and spotless. Only one person is at the desk and there is no 'hotel' lobby per se. There is daily maid service included, not the norm in most apartments, and there are washer dryers that came in handy in the middle of our trip (the first week was spent hiking). There is a small but functional gym and one computer for guest's use. The location is central enough to walk to everything and every form of public transportation is steps away from the front door. We will stay there on every subsequent trip to Barcelona
