Where should we look for vacation rentals in Barcelona?

My wife and I will be traveling to Barcelona at the end of this month for our belated honeymoon. We'll be in Barcelona for just under two weeks and we're looking for a good place to stay.

Neither of us really wants to stay in a hotel room the whole time. Ideally we'd like to find some sort of apartment we could rent for two weeks. One with a kitchen and washer/dryer would be ideal. Where should we look for such a thing?

Loquo is a good place to look for private apartment rentals - it's very common in BCN to do this so there should be a number of them.

I used friendlyrentals.com last summer in Barcelona and had a perfect apartment in El Borne. They speak English and their apartments are luxurious and spotless. Much cheaper and more romantic than a hotel.

ApartmentsApart has locations in Barcelona. I recently stayed in one of their London apartments and was very happy with it.

Although the site is not specific to Barcelona, you'll find appartment advertising on Andalucia.com

There are tons of apartment choices all around. I've rented through these people before and it was fine.

I personally have stayed in apartments in El Born and El Raval before and have come to the conclusion that L'Eixample is the nabe to stay in. Home of all the good architecture, all of the good restaurants, most of the good bars and an easy walk down to the Ciutat Vell/El Born/El Raval. Quieter at night, cleaner.

Also if you like ham go here Jamonisimo

I stayed at the citadines. Very central. Well worth looking at.

I can recommend BCN internet - we've used them to book apartments in Barcelona for the last five years now, and haven't had any complaints, either with their service or the quality of the apartments.
