4 of us stayed 8 nights at the apartment, for a conference at Fira Barcelona Gran Via. It is a very lovely and clean apartment with all modern amenities. The pictures were accurate representatives and the apartment was very near the L9 line for metro and the bus stop was just downstairs, and Gran Via 2 shopping centre was practically next door. Carmen was easy to contact and would answer messages quite fast. Would definitely recommend for those seeking to go to Fira Barcelona though if you need to be in town more, do know that it is some ways away, and would take about 15 mins by cab, and 10 mins by bus (to Pl. Espanya, from where you have better access to all the metro lines). L9 has more limited connectivity. On a plus point, it is 3 stops away from Collblanc station, the closest for now to Camp Nou.
I must however mention a couple of (minor) drawbacks: the middle room did not have the side table lamps that was pictured (something I needed) and there were no spare toilet rolls given, and we had to ask for some. Considering everything else was provided (even laundry detergent and dishwasher liquid) we thought this was a very odd shortcoming. Staying 8 nights for a business trip we did not think we would have to buy toilet rolls ourselves. There were also no mats provided in the bathrooms, which was an inconvenience.
Also, please consider your entrance to the Fira and the Halls you have access to if going for a conference. The Convention Centre is extremely large and the apartment is fairly near the South Entrance but is very far from the North Entrance (and you might not be permitted to walk through it to get there. A walk outside from the apartment to the North Entrance (Halls 6, 7 and 8) will take 20 mins or more).
