The apartment looks recently renovated and is on the 5th floor, there's a new lift in the building. The company that owns the apartment has offices downstairs and they own the whole building. They were very helpful.
Overall the apartment is very clean, well laid out and comfortable. The aircon works well. The bed and pillows are very comfortable. There's plentiful hot water and the shower is great.
The terrace has sun most of the day , there are deck chairs but no sun loungers or umbrella for shade.
There is no dishwasher or microwave as stated but you really don't need it. There is a 2 ring hob.
Wifi is fine.
Being on the top floor there's little noise but the area itself is quiet. There's everything you need on the surrounding streets. There's a supermarket, bakery, fruit shop, cafes and restaurants within a minutes walk. We easily walked to the centre of Barcelona and its a safe area.
The apartment is also very secure.
