"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

I booked an apartment through Oh Barcelona. It was an attic apartment with a view of Tibidabo. I had searched for weeks to find the perfect place for my husband's 60th birthday and was really looking forward to sharing his birthday among the rooftops of Barcelona. When we arrived we were told that the apartment I had booked had no... More

We booked it in September for 1 night. Service was good. Location perfect, 3 min from Sagrada Familia and we could use the subway. Nice beds, suitable for 6-8 persons. Good value and free WiFi. Very clean and tidy. We recommend it highly and we can come again there! Parking places opposite the building costs 18 eur for 24 hours... More

We booked one apartment - a double bed, a single and a sofa. Conditions were very good - clean, kitchen very well equipped, we had towels, iron and a safe deposit box. The contact person was there in time; the building was clean and quite. For us (as a family with two children) was very good also because the position... More

We booked 4 apartments with Alcam Hercules in June 2013. When we arrived, we had to wait approx. 30 mins for the agent to arrive, but once we were in we had a wonderfull time! The apartments are spacious, clean and comfortable. Aircon was very much appreciated, and the window shutters were a nice touch, especially if you are not... More
