The 2min walk to the Sagrada Familia & Metro station were the best features of this apartment. The property is unattended & there is no parking on the very busy street on which it is located. So on arriving at the time we had advised in our email communication no one was there & we had to find parking before... More

Stayed in a different apartment building to any featured on tripadvisor called Alcam Alio although through the same group. Check in is round the corner at the Alcam office where they take a 300euro deposit and make you sign a contract which they only have in spanish before they handover the key. The photographs of the 4 bed apartment are... More

The apartment is well located just a few minutes walk from the Sagrada Familia and its metro stop, with a supermarket opposite and another little one round the corner (which is handily open until about midnight). There are a couple of decent cafes within (literally) 2 minutes walk which is handy if you fancy breakfast/brunch/lunch out. It was exceptionally secure... More

We booked this a few months ago for a trip to Barcelona with some friends and our mum's.3 weeks before we were due to fly out we were shocked by the latest reviews. We were thinking the worst .We were asked to contact the agents when we landed at the airport as the apartments are not manned 24 hrs. We... More

"Problems with their machine" for payment have resulted in no deposit receipt or return, and double charging the credit card for the stay. Trying to sort this out after our trip home has been unsuccessful but travel insurance will cover the cost. The apartment we were given didn't match the description/photos that we booked. We can confirm other reviews that... More

One arrival at the airport we called Alcam to meet us at the apartment at 14:00. They arrived on time and promptly checked us in. The lady who welcomed us in was professional and got us to sign a contract that was in Spanish (this is the norm for all rental apartments in Barcelona, as far as I can tell).... More

Be careful that you read all of the conditions; we 'evidently' hadn't and were subject to a local government tax of 40 Euros and a deposit (refundable upon exit check of apartment) of £300. The apartment was clean and sheets were fresh. The beds were uncomforable. The location worked out to be good (a five minute walk to the Underground)... More

Be sure you have a phone that works in Barcelona and call them as soon as you land to reduce wait time. Neighborhood is okay and a supermarket is across the street. Short walk to Sagrada Familia. Everything in the apartment worked fine. Elevator available. Thought the rate was reasonable through Booking.com.

this is the crappiest apartment service I have ever stayed in. 1. We were told that the check-in is 24 hours. It is not! We waited for 50 mins for them to arrive. 2. They did not make a reservation of the apartment that we wanted. Instead, they gave us a really crappy apartment, far away from the city center.... More

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
