“Very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

Perfect, clean, silent & comfortable. We were in four (one of 13th years old) and we were fine. the rooms are spacious, modern, very comfortable beds. the windows were on the road and have very thick panes so the noise of the traffic does not enter (all very important things when traveling .... because otherwise there is a risk that you spoil your trip!). Congratulations then to the structure and the guys at the reception, all very friendly and efficient. We hope to go one day in Madrid and in the case definately be booking in these structures. Thank you!

The apartment was exactly as we saw it on the web, nice modern decor, clean, comfortable beds, pillows and duvets. Overall a fab experience. Would definetly stay again.

Change of towels was the only glitch, as there was a charge of extra 10 euros for more towels on the next day.

Stayed here for 2 nights. Fantastic apartment with lovely decor. Good location next to Metro in a nice neighbourhood. Staff were friendly & helpful. Free wifi & facilities such as washing machine, dish washer, microwave, cooker.

Only 1 issue, the shower wasn't great stopped & started. Also could have done with more mirrors to get ready.

We usually book at hotels whenever we travel but because of the good reviews on these apartment suites, we tried a 2-bedroom unit last April 15-20, 2013. We were pleasantly surprised with the very clean, hotel-like suite of Eric Vokel Apartments along Gran Via at a much lower cost.The reception staff were very courteous and helpful. and there are free wifi, free local calls. We had fun cooking our favorite food when we got tired of tapas and pizzas because the kitchen is complete with all the amenities including cutlery. The location is perfect - a few minutes walk to Plaza Espana and Las Ramblas, a favorite tourist attraction. Perfect for families!

We went in April of 2013 on our kid's Spring break. We had a 2 bedroom apartment. Everything was great except the beds are uncomfortable. You could feel the springs in the mattresses. If Erik would negotiate with his IKEA partner, he could fix this very quickly. Everyone could not sleep at night due to the uncomfortable mattresses.

Otherwise, very clean, very good kitchen, very nice space. Good location.

We needed two rooms and this establishment did not disappoint. It has good access to both the airport (23 euros from the airport by taxi) via Gran Via and also to the neural center of the city by bus, metro or taxi. The apartments are well equipped with cooking, serving and washing requirements, and so living a normal family day is not a problem, unlike in traditional hotels. The design of the rooms is modern and clean.

We (myself and 4 others) stayed in the Grand Via Suites, between 18-21 April. We stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment which was absolutely fantastic!!

The apartment has 3 very good sized rooms and 2 equally decent sized bathrooms. The property is modern and appeared brand new, throughout.

Included in the price were towels, cleaning products, free wifi and a voucher for a free breakfast each morning. This is redeemed at a coffee shop next door and was nice.

The property also comprised of 2 terraces (one of which was locked unfortunately), one of which has 2 sun loungers for sun bathing - again, this was a nice touch. The sofa is also a sofa bed, which provides the opportunity for 6 people to stay. The apartment also has a very big, separate open space Kitchen, an iron, ironing board, washing machine and mop. Basically, everything you might need!

The staff were very helpful on check in and I would not hesitate to return.

The metro is also located next door, although we found taxi prices were very reasonable so opted to travel by this mode instead.

The only thing I would change would be to provide some coffee capsules for the machine, as we could not find these in the local shops which was a shame.

The lift in the building is also very small (fits 3 people max with cases) which is a shame, however, this is an old building so I appreciate they probably cannot change this.

The location/area seemed relatively safe, although we took taxi's on an evening, rather than walking. It is a 20 min walk to La Rambla which isn't bad, but local transport would be required to go to the beach etc. The taxi's really aren't expensive though so I recommend this.

Overall, this is one of the best apartments I have ever stayed in and we will definitely return to an Erik Vokel apartment soon!!

Thanks

Room Tip: I would ask for a room on the lower levels if you don't want to have to wait for the lift.
