“Love the staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2014

My husband and I stayed for 4 nights at this wonderul apartment by end of January, 2014. The staff were so helpful to accomandate an early check in by sending 2 cleaning ladies for a faster turn over. They were very responsive every time when we had questions or needed assistance. The staff were always friendly too!! Their recommendation to local restaurants and the flamenco dance show were worth the money and left us wonderful memory.

The one room apartment suite we had was wonderful. It was clean with plenty of sun light, beddings were very clean as well. I was also impressed by the electronic blinds. The kitchen was equipped sufficient to cook some simple meals.

The only downside we had was the washing machine runned over 12 hrs on the pre-wash cycle which I have no idea how can a washing machine be programmed like that as I only selected one button said 1 hour. However, I don't blame this on the hotel and staff as the moment we seeked help, they came pretty quick and reset the machine for us and taught us the right set up.

So if you need to wash your clothing, just make sure you understand the set up as the user manual may not be the best guideline.

It's one month after our trip and I still think about how much I enjoyed and needed to write this review.. this speaks how much me and my husband enjoyed our stay!! Love the apartment, love Barcelona!! I will come back for sure!

Had an amazing stay and the best start to my holidays! The place is full of warmth and just felt like home when you came back everyday. The staff was most courteous and helpful. A special mention for Alex who was extremely efficient, helpful and helped us through everything. The apartments were clean, well equipped and well designed.The icing on the cake was a lovely surprise for our honeymoon and a handwritten letter which we will treasure. Thanks for making our stay so memorable.

We stayed for three nights in Eric Vökel Gran Via Suites and enjoyed it very much indeed. The suite (nr 53) was really doing justice to the concept "Nordic Stile and Mediterranian Soul", very good design, in shape as new and very well equipped including the kitchen which makes it easy to cook "at home" if you don't want to dine in one of the nice restaurants nearby or in the center (we did so one of our three nights).There is a good breakfast café a few meters from the entrance and a supermarket two blocks away.

Staff was very friendly and helpful including with advicing on restaurants and parking (the hotel has an agreement with a parking facility nearby). We found Barcelona as fantastic as expected (the Sagrada Familia is just STUNNING) and despite our limited time took a trip to Tarragona as well, which was fantastic with interesting Roman amphitheatre i.a. and the best restaurant of our entire break (the Arcs).

We only regret we did nt have more time. And we will definitely come back to Eric Vökel next time in Barcelona!

Stayed at the Eric Vokel Gran Via apartments for two nights with friends to celebrate a birthday. Apartments are very clean and modern with plenty of space and quality appliances and furniture. We stayed in a two bedroom, one bathroom apartment that could sleep 6 ( there were 4 of us so there was plenty of room). Central location as very near to a metro stop and about a 20 minute stroll to La Rambla. Reception staff were very helpful. I would stay here again and would recommend to others

everything about this place just made perfect sense. From the good service provided to us to the location to the incredibly exquisite room we got. Lift was very old-fashioned, like something out of war times. You know? Anyhow, we got Room #81 in the 8th floor. It was very difficult bringing up all our luggages all at once but we coped smoothly. The one we stayed in Madrid pales in comparison to this one. Not a chance. This was KING. An EPIC WIN. For those travelling to Barcelona with family or a group of friends, stay here ! No buts ! No questions asked. You will know why. Man, I could live here forever. Who am I kidding? Just Sayin. Haha. I will return ! Make no mistake. :)

Dear guest,

First of all I want to thank you for chosen Eirc Vökel Gran Via Suites for your stay in Barcelona.

I'm so glad to see that you had a very nice stay with us and you enjoyed our apartment and location.

It is true that the lift was small a difficult to manage with the luggage but I inform you that you changed it for a modern one which is bigger and faster but we kept the old structure.

Thank you so much for a such review and for recommending us as you did.

It would be a great pleasure for all our staff to welcoming you again in the future.

Do not hesitate to contact me for anything else you may need.
