“Good accommodation close to Sagrada Familia”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

Nice clean apartments close to Sagrada Familia. Our apartment had a kitchen, living/dining room, two bedrooms (one single bed, one double bed) and a bathroom. The bathroom was a bit cramped though.

The service (at reception) was good. Wifi internet is available, but expensive (4.40 Euro per day).

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

I stayed on the fifth floor with a balcony. So I could sit with a glass of wine and watch the church every night.

The location is excellent. You can walk to most sights and metro stations. There is a nice supermarket a block away which sells ready-made food and wine/beer. If you take streets about one or two streets off from the main touristic streets, you can see the cute little cafes and bars locals go to.

Somehow I got a two room unit with a balcony. The master bedroom, a single room, a well equipped kitchen, a bathroom with a tub and living room are spacious and clean. This place is perfect for a family with children. They can buy food and cook simple meals.

The staff jus gives you a key.You cannot expect more than that. They also take care of the garage so most of times they are busy tending the garage customers.

My sony tablet and samsung galaxy didn't pick the wifi signal up here. Otherwise, this place was GREAT.

Amazing location, just round the corner from the Sagrada Familia and easily connected to other attractions by metro or walking.
Spacious apartment, well-equipped, we managed to cook pasta and Carbonara sauce on our second night :-).
We only stayed for 2 nights but I think this is a perfect choice for longer stays since it has all you need for it, like a washing machine and place to dry your clothes. It's safe and it's clean!
The staff that helped us with the check-in was very nice and check-out was easy as well. It's 24hrs reception since they also have a parking business.
The only thing was that Wi-Fi is not included in the price (we knew this before booking) and that can be inconvenient at times if you need to check e-mails or look for touristic info during your stay.

The location was perfect and the rooms were beautifully modern. The terrace facing the inner courtyard wasn't much to look at but because we were in a great location we walked everywhere. The rooms were quiet and beds were comfortable. The staff was friendly and incredibly helpful. There was a grocery store and pharmacy on the same block and there were too many restaurant options from which to choose. Having a kitchen, especially at the end of our trip, was a nice option for when we tired of restaurants. We would stay here again without hesitation!

I can call this a real apartment but with a service like in a hotel. The reception staff is nice and helpful. Rooms are big (huge!), clean and nice. Very quite - we didn't hear our neighbors while being during busy season. The presence of kitchen in the room is absolutely fantastic! There is a grocery store just few steps away that works till 2am, so we were able to see Barsa up till the subway closes and still able to get some food.
Location is fantastic! Every morning while going to subway to bus stop you see Sagrada! It is magnificent! And the metro station is very good - it can quickly get you to the main attractions.
These apartments are perfect combination of price, location, rooms.
I would definitely stay here again if we happen to visit Barsa again!

Room Tip: Ask for the room facing the yard - it is more quite, plus you can see how Spanish people live "...

The view from the balcony is great! you can see the sagrada da familia.
The staff is very helpful, helped us a a lot and recommended us places to visit and explained us how to get there.
The room is very clean and very well equipped with a stove, dishwasher plates etc.

The hotel is not quiet in the center but it very close to the underground train, you can get anywhere with it.
You can find right under the hotel a supermarket what is making your life a lot easier when you want to buy something for breakfast or any other thing.

It was definitely a good choice!
Recommended!!!

Room Tip: Rooms on the side of the sagrada da familia!

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights in early December. Travelling with just cabin baggage, these apartments are probably not ideal, as they are very large with surplus storage space, but lack some essentials such as tea-towels, basic cleaning materials, etc. Our apartment was also not very clean, particularly sinks, work surfaces, and the marble effect floors, and the maid service seemed rather limited. Set against these negative points are the amount of space, the extremely convenient location just 2 mins walk from La Sagrada Familia and the adjacent metro station, the wide balcony with its view over to the towers of this stunning piece of Modernista architecture, floodlit at night, the wider location in the architecturally significant Eixample of the city,, the help afforded by the 24 hour reception staff, and, most significantly for those travelling on a budget, the price. We would stay again, but only if we were travelling with hold baggage, and were staying for nearer a week.

Room Tip: Ask for an upper floor apartment with a view over towards La Sagrada Familia
