“Perfect location for Camp Nou”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

This was our first time to Barcelona. We arrived at the hotel to pick up our key to the apartment quite late but were met with a smile. We were escorted to our apartment but left to find things out for ourselves which was fine as pretty straightforward. There are plenty of towels and extra duvets. We were a family of five, youngest 8 but there was plenty of space with two double rooms and a single, as well as a bed settee. we stayed four nights - not long enough! There is no outdoor or indoor swimming pool. If your first day is a Sunday be aware that there is not much open but across the street is a shop that is like a our corner shops which sells the basics. However, the hotel does breakfast, we had the express one which was great value for money, mini croissants, fruit juice and tea, coffee or chocolate for just €3 each person. The apartments are not far from the metro which is just a few minutes walk and a brilliant way of getting around Barcelona. Buses also stop outside the apartments which can be noisy at night. Camp Nou is only a 5 minute walk away and an awesome place to go, even for non-footie fans. Thank you Madanis!!

Room Tip: Apartments on the street side can be noisy but air con and heating unit in most rooms.

Thank you to you for your nice review. It is a pleasure to know that you enjoyed your stay with us. It is true that apartments are the ideal type of lodgement for families. Madanis Apartments are spacious and full of light. Many os our guests tell us that they feel like they were at home. It is realy a good option, especially if you travel with children because the apartment gives you the necessary independence and freedom.
Now you know that you have a home in Barcelona.
We are looking forward to seeing you soon.
Kind regards from Madanis!

We spent three night in the Madanis Apartments and found them to be clean, spacious and suited to our needs. The metro is approx two/three hundred metres. We found that to be the most cost efficient way to get round. We purchased a 10 journey ticket which could be used for both of us, just hand the ticket back to your travel companion for them to swipe.and this actually covered the two full days we had. The metro stations are everywhere so getting off and on is not a problem.
The staff we found to be very helpful and attentive. Breakfast was adequate and the location very interesting, lots of places to wander in the evening and get a taste of the local life. The place comes alive during the evening, when everybody gets out and about.
I would be happy to stay their again if we ever got back to Barcelona.

We stayed in Barcelona only 2 nights and we choose this apartments for few reasons:
- We took their special offer with free FC Barcelona Museum tickets, which saved us some money, because tickets are fairly expensive
- location is near to airport, easiest way and if there are more persons is to take a taxi (25-30 EUR)
- for one day of exploring we took hop on hop off bus, the stop is located at the stadium Camp Nou, where you can start and finish your trip. You don't need to use any other transportation.

Apartments are located 50m from hotel. We had 3 bedroom app., which was spacious and simply, but nicely decorated. Only bad thing is, that windows are very bad and you can hear all the noise from outside. Staff was nice, they borrowed us umbrellas, express breakfast was just to satisfy first hunger. We would definetely stay there again.

Thank you very much for your comments and the detailed description you give of our facilities. The information you provide about the apartment's location and services will no doubt be very useful to future guests.
It is a great satisfaction for us to know that your stay was a pleasant experience for you. You are very kind to mention our staff. They are very professional and love their job.
I'm very sorry about the noise from the street you mention. Our apartments are located in a very quiet aerea of the city, but in days of matchs at the Stadium it is more difficult to ensure the silence in the street. Next time, please, mention it at the moment of the booking and we will book for you one of our apartments with windows towards the back of the building. They are incredibly silent!
It will be a pleasure to welcome you again at Madanis.

We had a 3-room apartment unit which was reasonably spacious and furnished. But there are air-conditioners installed in the sitting area and one of the bedrooms. The master bedroom and the other smaller room have only ceiling fans. It was a hot summer day during our stay, and we will need to keep the bedroom door open at night to get some cool air. The apartment is located 10 mins walk from a subway station, which is neat. And note that you will need to go down the street to the hotel reception for checking in and checking out. The good thing is that the hotel receptionists were quick friendly and speak very good English.

Dear guest,
Thank you very much for your comment. It is always very useful for us to receive our guest's feed back which always helps us to improve. We are very happy that you are pleased with the treatment you received from our staff.
As far as the air conditioners, I very much regret the problem you had. Please accept my sincere apologies for the inconvenience this most certainly caused you. Our apartments have always air conditioners in the main room and in the dining room. Most of them, have air conditioners also all over the flat, but when they have some additional single rooms sometimes they have only some fanners that work also very well on hot days. When our guests prefer to have air conditioners in all the rooms, we usually can manage to give them one of our apartments fully equiped with air conditioners. Did you report it at our Front Desk? It is always very important to do it because more often than not the problen can be solved.
I'll suggest to do so next time you visit us if you need something, we are always pleased to make the most for our guests. We will be very pleased to serve you again. Nice regards from Barcelona.

Stayed at the Madanis Hotel en route from the airport to Banyoles as we were arriving late.
The room was compact, but clean and functional but the fold down bed was very uncomfortable. I was disappointed that we were not staying at the hotel section but an apartment down the road, for the price we paid (£140) it felt rather steep but Barcelona is expensive. The breakfast was fairly ordinary. The car park was extremely tight with a steep ramp down to the parking area, this was very difficult to park in a large car. Good if you want to be in the area but not for a stop off as it took as long finding the hotel as going to our destination..

Dear guest,
Thank you very much for your comments. All reviews are useful and they always help us to think about our services and to continue in our efforts to improve.
I have checked all the fold down beds trying to spot the problem you had but all of them are in good conditions. They are of good quality and have the reputation of being very confortable. Sometimes, with bed equipment, there is a question of personal preferences which is very difficult to control. In any case, please, accept my apologies for the inconvenience.
As for the place where you were lodged what can I say is that you were a bit lost about the booking. You booked Madanis Apartments, not the Hotel. You were disappointed by this fact but we could do nothing about it. Both establishments have different ways of booking and our guests must check that they are booking one or another depending on their preferences. We recommend Apartments for families or long stays whereas the Hotel is more appropiate for a stop off as was your case.
About the breakfast, I am really surprised that you were not fully satisfied. Tried you our buffet? or you simply asked for the "express". We have two different kind of breakfast to let the guest choose. If they have the time we always recommend our Buffet: it is really an experience, with a very special selection of good quality products, homemade cakes and jams, catalan charcuterie, fruits, dairy products, hot dishes, etc. The express is a quick solution for an extremelly reduced price for those who are in a hurry.
Let us see the parking. Again both possibilities: a closed garage for normal cars and some places on the street upon Hotel control for special cars. We offer them always when guests tell us that their car is a big one. Perhaps we had not this information.
You say also that the Apartments location was not convenient for your stop off in Barcelona. Again, perhaps, a lack of information because we are a only two minutes from Diagonal which is the main way to enter and to go off the city. If you had asked us some information about it we would have been very happy to send you written indications.
I suggest that you visit us again soon and I assure you we will be ready to meet all of your expectations. Thank you very much!

Nice hotel located close to an underground station.
A nice stay which could have been a little better if there was less noise during 2 of the 5 days we have spent there and if the kitchen was a little bit better equipped (more ustensiles, etc...)

Thank you very much for your comments. We appreciate very much the time our guests spend in writing their opinions which are always very useful to improve our work.
I apologize for the noise that disturbed your rest during two of the five nights you spent with us. From your review I don't see if there was noise inside our premises (a noisy neighbour) or came from the street. If it was the first case, you should have informed our Reception staff that would have put an end to the problem
As for the kitchen equipment we provide all our apartments with a fixed set of utensils which are enough for a basic use of the kitchen facilities. The number of cups and dishes is always the double of the number of people. In any case, when our guest needs some additional equipment, they can address to our Front Desk.
We work hard every day to make it sure that our guests will find everything they need in the apartments equipment but, sometimes it is difficult to have everything, so don't hesitate to ask our staff who will be always happy to serve.
We hope to see you again in Barcelona. Thank you very much.
