How big of a deal is not having a laundry room in my apartment unit?

Short and sweet: I'm thinking of renting a studio apartment that does not have a laundry room.
There's a very positively Yelped laundromat a couple of blocks away. So I'm inclined to think of the no-laundry situation as no big deal.
However, my friend tells me that I'm making a huge mistake and underestimating what a pain in the ass it will be to go to the laundromat.
Can you tell me about your experience living in an apartment with no laundry? Would you take a place with no laundry? (Bonus questions: How was your laundromat experience? Any tips to make my trips efficient and pleasant?)
