    Superb

    The location was excellent being very close to the central bus hub of Placa Catalunya, the metro and the atmosphere of Las Ramblas. We had a family of 5 (3 children) and the apartment was very comfortable and relaxing and the proximity of local shops and a supermarket on Las Ramblas made it very convenient.

    Better cleaning of the rooms would have been helpful. The 40 euros for the cleaning charge was for just changing the bins and even they got missed one day!

    Exceptional

    Very good value, location, and comfort. Very nicely decorated and clean rooms.

    The elevator did not work sometimes. That was a problem, especially when leaving to the airport with suitcases. We had to walk down four flights of stairs with luggage.

    Very good

    Adrianna was most attentive to my requests and I was impressed that she really had a listening ear; although she could not oblige to my request the followind day after I had checked in, for a bedding configuration (proper bed) for four, to my pleasant surprise, a portable bed was brought in on 15.6.11 (Wed). When I requested for a late check-out as my flight departure was at 1845 hrs, she made a special trip to my room to inform me that I could check out at 1300 hrs after she had checked with the housekeeper on her cleaning schedule. I conclude that the service rendered was indeed very personal. My commendation also goes to the elegant receptionist on the ground floor who immediately coordinated the retrieval of a pouch we had dropped into the courtyard and personally delivered it back to us.

    My family patronizes service apartments during our annual family vacations, therefore we have the opportunity to be able to compare the varying standards. I was disappointed to find only a proper double bed and the other, a sofa bed for two. It was a dampener every morning to have to store the bed back into its sofa-mode; also the two quilted white blankets offered were not lined with linen since they were meant for the 'make-shift bed', therefore I had reservations about using them. I had booked for 6 in all my previous travels and I would definitely get proper beds; this year for the 1st time, I booked for 4 as my two other daughters could not join us, and I was expecting a reduction of 2 bedding configuration therefore was most disappointed upon entering the room to find that there was a double bed 'missing'. If this was the usual practice of Amister Apartments to offer a compromised bedding arrangement, then it should make the configuration very clear eg. Apartment for 4 consists of one double bed and a sofa bed for two.

    Exceptional

    The location is excellent, the apartment we had was clean, modern, pleasant, well equipped, well kept and spacious. The personnel were polite and helpful.

    We didn’t like the fact we had to pay upon check-in an extra €40 for the cleaning of the flat after our departure. This term was apparently in the small print which we did not notice when booking. Surely the rental for a 3 day stay (which was not cheap) should have covered that expense. Or alternatively, that expense should have been included and shown in the quoted total price at the time of choosing and booking.

    Fabulous

    Very well equiped - so useful to have dish washer and washing machine - beds comfortable - bathroom excellent.

    Overnight traffic noise needed a while to get used too! Would have prefered mugs for tea and coffee - tea cups a bit small!

    Exceptional

    Staying in a lovely apartment in the heart of Barcelona was terrific. The location is steps to the top of the Ramblas and Placa Catalunya. The apartment was very clean. The contemporary design provided comfort, convenience, and security. Loved the washer and dryer.I highly recommend the Amister Apartments.

    The room was nice, clean and well maintained The outside was in renovation and the elevator did not work (~5 floors) We arrived at 23:00 and to check in we had to take a taxi to the Amister hotel which was a poor surprise. Instead for providing a discount due to the inconvenience caused by the renovation. The hotel charged additional 40euro per room cleaning which was not in the contract

    No check-in after 18:00. The entrance look very poor. Extra charge for cleaning

    perfect location, lovely apartment.

    elevator broken at time, had to carry suitcases up four flights of stairs.also would have been nice if they provided a few tea bags/ coffee, salt pepper and a toaster.

    Lovely place to stay, great location close to metro, beach about 45 min walk, close to the ramblers and plenty of shopping. Hotel across the road has a small spa and a 30 min massage for 35 euros. Good facilities in apartment with small kitchenette and a dishwasher was great!

    Unfortunately the lift was broken and we had to walk up several flights of stairs with luggage. They were fitting a new lift at the time so hopefully this won't happen again too soon!

    Superb

    We enjoyed the location being right near the central plaza.

    Lift was out of order and the apartment was on 5th floor.

    Superb

    Central location, very high quality fixtures and fittings - Washer dryer & dishwasher in apartment with detergent and washing up liquid provided! Quiet despite being on main road - good sound proofing and window blinds excellent. Air conditioning was great and essential (34oC outside)

    No kettle, lift not working (carrying luggage up 3-4 flights of stairs, very difficult to find entrance to apartment as only a very small plaque on front door. Took taxi driver 5-10 mins to locate the door for us.

    Superb

    The apartment was very nice, enough space, nice beds and a fully equipped kitchen. Staff had put 2 bottles of water in the fridge (complimentary!). The best thing about the apartment is the location: right in the heart of Barcelona!

    On the 3th floor there were new apartments being build. That gave some noise, but it wasn't very disturbing

    Exceptional

    Staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. There was literally everything we needed in a small studio apartment - hair dryer, washer/dryer, kitchen thing.... Great location, walking to shopping, Ramblas, Catalunya, yet insulated windows prevented it from being too noisy.

    Dryer didn't work very well - ended up having to hang our clothes; toilet ran constantly - little things. We thought it was a one bedroom but it was a studio.

    Very good

    The localization is great! Is near from everything. The apartment was well equipped with tools in good conditions, spacious area. Alba (staff) is very kind.

    The building is also comercial and you can feel isolated because of it. There is no doorman or something to help you when you need something fast. Our shower was a mess! Always falling in your heads and the water did not flow off and we had to stop our bath to let it flow off very slowly then start the bath again. They charged a cleaner tax (40,00 euros).We asked for a cab (to someone's staff) to go to the airport , The cab should take us 6:30 am, but we wait 15 min. and took a street cab, because We could not wait anymore, that's why the localization is important, we easily found a cab, but it was a little bit stressed.

    Fabulous

    It was very spacious and the location was great. It was close to La Ramblas but still far enough away from the noise.

    The kitchen was not laid out very well. The bathroom shower setup made the water leak on the floor
