The location was excelent, facilities were modern, rooms were clean. The apartments were really as apartments and included all necessary - iron, washing machine, dishes etc. Nice staff when available! ;-)
The check in time and absence of staff from during the day was not very good as there are a lot of flights coming to Barcelona during the daytime and instead of spending 2 hours in the city, we had to spend 2 hours in nearest cafe with our luggage. Check in time can be as it is however at least 1 person could be available!!
The apartment we stayed in was spacious and very clean and had pergo-type floors - no carpets, which we greatly appreciated.
You have to adapt to the extended Spanish afternoon break. If you arrive in the afternoon, the person on duty may be gone for several hours and if you arrive late in the evening you would have to pick up your key at another location. Although the windows are new and sound-proofed, there was some street noise. However, this would probably be a problem anywhere in town.
The location was excellent close to underground and shopping and restaurant areas.
We did not like the lack of transparency in relation to a cleaning charge of 40 Euro. It was mentioned at the very end of the booking record in very small print. It would be fairer to quote it in total cost of booking which is clearly seen early in the booking form. Towels only changed on request.
The location was great as it was only a short stroll to the Metro and La Rambla. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the apartment was clean and comfortable. I would fully recommend these apartments
Great location, well maintained and very comfortable.
However no cleaning work done during the entire 5 days : no garbage removal nor renewal of towels or bed linen !! Also no amenities replenished. Not adequate quantity of towels for 4 to start with !! Provision of all the above would have made the stay as outstanding !
It was Ideal for us,as we waere a family of 2 adults and 2 children, the location of the hotel was excellent, near everything, very clean and very helpful staff
Very spacious, a few blocks from Plaza Catalunya and Las Ramblas, great air conditioner, very clean, and pleasant staff. One day the elevator was not working, we were on the second floor which is really a fourth floor so it wasn't that bad.
The apartment was extremely new, comfortable, clean and spacious. the kitchen was well equipped. we had only booked a one bedroom apartment and were upgraded to a two room apartment however the second room is not enclosed and the tv could be seen but our teenage daughter didnt mind. the location was great, its right in the centre, but noisy if barcelona soccer club are playing in the finals, we didnt mind it was an experience to behold. The receptionist had left her seafood in our fridge as she lives out of barcelona, we didnt mind and as an apology she gave us a free bottle of very nice wine.
nothing not to like, maybe a bit more than we would like to have payed per night but very cheap compared to a triple hotel room, barcelona seems expensive in general.
Perfectly located near the King Cross interchange from where you can get to anywhere in the City. Although rooms are small but privacy is ensured because of the cleverly designed location of doors and entrances. Hard working staff whose multi tasking responsibility augers well for the hotel.
The location is great being very close to La Rambla and very accessible to the major metro lines, tour buses, super markets, restaurants and shopping. The apartment was very comfortable and reasonably equipped. The person at the desk was very friendly and she gave us a lot of tips in order to help us plan our itinerary.
There us one majot thing that is somewhat inconvenient. There is no daily cleaning for anything in the apartment other than trash removal so you have to be prepared to clean the place if you are there for several days. There is no vaccum cleaner so its a lot more manual and it does not really feel like you are on a vacation. So the lifestyle issue is the big one. It may be better for them to have a suite type of system rather than an apartment model and it would be perfect. They don't provide extra shampoo or other things on a daily basis so you also have to carry your supplies unlike a hotel. In any case it is a matter of understanding what to expect during the stay.
Location was good but very noisy - did not sleep all night.
The hotel staff was very unfriendly and the room was dirty. Would not stay here again. Also worth noting is the 40 euro cleaning fee that comes above the total room price.
The proximity to the downtowm, transit, shopping, Las Ramblas and Starbucks!
We were delayed 2 days and when we arrived found staff very nice. Room was nice but basic shower etc, flat screen tv and full kitchen were really good, location could not be any better at top of ramblas within a few hundred meters of airport bus and tourist buses etc. Free wifi was great and staff even offered us there pc to use as there was a airport strike that we needed to check on. Would stay here again
Shower was small and no screen so water everywhere and toilet was also In a small cubicle
Location is perfect and close to everything around. But also its quite enough to have a peacefull night which you can not get if you stay in La Ramblas.
The reception staff availibule only for certain hours ( 9 - 2 pm ) then ( 4 - 7 pm ) .. if you are checking in in a different time , you have to wait for their work hours.
Great apartment in amazing location. Ariandna was lovely and helpful. Transfers to an from airport organised. Good to have kitchen facilities to eat in.
Advertised as a 1 bedroom but wasn't a separate room from living area. Just had a 1.5m wall between bed an TV, so made it a little hard to put bub down for a sleep.
