We stayed in this apartment for 8 nights, and cost us a total of $1105 CAD. This price was a bit cheaper than most hotels we looked into, but it wasn't super cheap. Accommodations in Barcelona in the Summer months can be quite pricey, but if you're willing to have a shared space or private room (as opposed to the whole apartment to yourself) you can definitely find a better bargain. Travelling in off seasons might also get you a better price.
After arriving in Barcelona, we met with our Airbnb host for check-in. She went over all of the details that we needed to know about the apartment, and gave us a map of the city. We then settled into our new home in Barcelona, freshened up, and headed out to explore! The apartment was very close to the Verdaguer metro station, which we used daily. The apartment was also a 5 minute walk to the stunning Sagrada Família, so we were able to see the church many times throughout our stay!
I really liked having a kitchen while we were in Barcelona. It was really convenient to have a fridge and freezer, so we could keep some staples in our apartment - juice, fruit, snacks, frozen treats, etc. The apartment also had a washer, which we made use of - although we were surprised by how long a wash cycle took! It was really nice to be able to come home with suitcases of clean clothing, and not have to worry about laundry when we were tired and jet lagged!

I would highly recommend checking out Airbnb for your upcoming travels. I think we will continue to book apartments with the service instead of hotels, since our first two experiences with Airbnb have gone so smoothly! If you want to book an apartment rental on Airbnb, feel free to use my referral link, which will give both of us a $31 CAD Airbnb credit.
