“Our stay in Claris”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

We stayed for 3 nights in June. The location was very good. The Pedrera was down the road. Casa Batllo was roughly a 10 min walk. Diagonal Metro is the nearest, another short 5 min walk on the main road of Passeig de Gracia (which has lots of designer shops and restaurants). There is a 24 hour corner-type shop just outside, good for essentials. A proper supermarket with separate fruit/veg market, about 15-20 minute walk away.
The apartment itself was very clean and nicely furnished with all the kitchen essentials and TV/stereo/Ipod speakers/hair dryer. Our main issue was that on two days there was a problem with the boiler and we didn't have any hot water for showers! The maintenance failed to solve the problem. However as an apology the owners decided to cancel our late check-in fee and gave us complementary champagne, which was very sweet.

Room Tip: Our apartment was smaller and had an interior view but apparently the larger ones overlook the main...

1) Location - Nearby Train Station, lots of shopping mall and places of interest lie one of the Gaudi artwork just across the street! Best of all there is a convenient store that operate 24hrs just below the apartment! Basically, you can get almost anything from there.

2) Condition - Superb condition with well furnished furniture. Microwave, oven, stove, washing machine, fridge and WIFI are all accessible. Aircon are available in both rooms and living room! I can't complain much.

3) Security - The streets are lit up and pretty quiet in the night. It is quite peaceful in my opinion.

4) Staff - Very friendly and heart warming.

5) Transport - Subway, Taxi...no problem at all.

6) Other service - This apartment has elevator so no worries if you have many luggage to carry

Enjoyed a very nice stay at the Claris apartments. Stay in a one bedroom the first couple of nights, then moved to a two bedroom when my family joined me for the weekend in Barcelona. Perfect both for my business stay and for the family weekend. These apartments have good internet connections, are located close to a number of tapas bars, restaurants and small 7/11 corner shops so you can replenish your fridge. Enjoyed in particular the organic breakfast place about 50 yards from the apartments.
The apartments are clearly recently decorated. Beds are OK, furniture not luxurious, but nice. Kitchen and bathrooms are nicely finished.
Highly recommended status from me, when visiting Barcelona for business or pleasure!

Just arrived back from a great golf weekend in Barcelona.
We stayed 4 friends in a two bedroom apartment. The location of the apartment is perfect, with many bars and restaurants very close.
And the Paseo de Gracia with plenty of shops is 2min walk away.

The owners/ management doesn't not live there. We reached to the hotel at 8 pm and waited one hour for the manager girl to bring us the keys till then stayed outside with our luggage. They charged us twice on the credit card and the issue is still pending with a famous hotel booking site. We lived there for 3 days and nobody came there to service the place. We were given 2 towels and asked to manage with those two towels for next 3 days since the place is not serviced till the guests leave the place. Not worth the single penny spent!

En relación al comentario indicado deseariamos aclarar algunos puntos:

- Disponemos de una oficina/recepción en el mismo edificio de los apartamentos. Esta oficina tiene un horario comercial de lunes a viernes. En todos los casos contactamos con nuestros clientes antes de su llegada para indicar la mejor forma de llegar a los apartamentos y realizar correctamente el check in. En el caso de este cliente, él mismo nos informó que llegaría sobre las 6 de la tarde durante un dia en la que las oficinas no estaban abiertas. Como nos indicó el cliente, sobre las 5:30 esperabamos su llegada en los apartamentos. Atendimos su llegada más de dos horas, sin recibir mensaje por su parte o poder localizarle por teléfono. Sobre las 20:30 nos contactó el cliente para informar que habia llegado. No tardamos mas de 10 minutos en llegar para recibirlo.

- Los cargos de la estancia se realizan directamente a la llegada del cliente. Agradeceríamos se facilite informacion veraz, ya que la tarjeta de este cliente fue cargada unicamente una vez y por el importe contratado.

- La limpieza diaria de los apartamentos no está incluida. Sin embargo se puede contratar a un módico precio y no dudamos en facilitar toallas limpias cuando se solicitan sin coste alguno.

Esperamos haber podido aclarar dudas de futuros clientes.

One large bedroom and a second that had space for 2 single beds end to end which was fine for the kids. One minor gripe - it would have been nice to have a lock on the bathroom door, but this was no big deal.

Our apartment was the attic flat and the small lift stopped one floor below that. No problem for us, but might be an issue if you have a mobility problem. The trek up and down was more than compensated for by the large roof top terrace. Opening the door in the morning and watching the city wake up from there was always a great start to the day. Apartment is brilliantly located just off Passeig de Gracia and overlooks La Pedrera was one the major Gaudi works. A 10 minute walk to Las Ramblas and a 2 minute walk to a Metro station. Would certainly stay her again

We stayed in this apartment for 4 nights.
We took two apartments one with one bedroom and the other with two bedrooms. In the two bedroom apartment we were 4 people and there was only one toilet, so that made things very difficult.
Room sizes were small. However the sitting room and the kitchen were fully equipped.
Please note that toiletries to them means towels and bed linens, not shampoo and shower gel, so make sure that you have them with you.
The apartment is not serviced, it can be with an extra cost.
The location was good in a very quiet area, and metro station is 5 minutes walk. But if you are like us, like to walk down to the la rambla or the harbour, then it's too much walking.
This is our third time in Barcelona, since we love, it, I can say choose to stay at hotels better.
