Great apartment, excellent service and phenomenal location.
The kitchen was very complete, shower and bath gel in the bathroom, very centric. My daughter was very excited to sleep in the bunkbeds where there was a spotlight to read her book!

Room Tip: The Deluxe apartments are well worth the additional upgrade price price as it was on the Paseo de Gr...

City Center Apartments was one of my best stays due to its position.Walking distance to shops(from top end fashion to the local grocer),train station, historic Barcelona with its Gaudi buildings,just a good starter point to explore Barcelona. There is a lovely plaza around the corner where the locals come in the evening. Great spot to have a drink, eat some local food and watch people!.Joey,the owner gave us a wonderful hospitality and any info we needed. Definite a place to recommend. A 5 star rating for all the facilities and lay out of the apartment.Many thanks Joey, we will be back!Nick and Rita

me and my boyfriend stayed here at the beginning of July and we had the best holiday ever! the apartments are a perfect size for a short stay, they are close by the the main shops (about a 15 min walk to La Rambla) and we got a free train ticket and some bubbly! we found the apartments quite difficult to find as it is up a side street but once you know where you are its fine. So make sure your prepared with a map to find it!

The facilities were great, lovely bathroom, great utensils, microwave, etc. The bed was really comfy and a nice flat screen tv on the wall, not that we had much time to watch it!

Overall i would definitely recommend. due to the price, location and comfort i would give it a 5* rating :)

Room Tip: Try and avoid rooms on the street side as it can be quite noisy!

My friends and I booked to stay at City Center Apartments purely because it was close to our friend’s apartment that lives in Barcelona and had air con. However I can not recommend the apartment enough it was perfect for our weekend trip. Before we arrived Joey and Gianfranco were really helpful and gave us all the information we needed and accommodated us by adding an addition bed to the apartment when another friend decided to add on to the trip, it was no trouble at all. The apartment was clean, cool, spacious and came with a courtyard and powerful showers and hairdryers which for 9 girls all getting ready for a day/night out was brilliant!

The apartment is roughly a 10-15 min walk from Passeig De Gracia the station which you can get the train to and from the airport a 25 min walk from Park Guell and the bus stops down to the beach (number 39) can be found round the corner. There is a local supermarket where you can buy all the basics a 2 min walk up the road along with a fruit and veg shop and Patisserie which sells amazing food.

The Plaza dek Sol is also a short walk from the apartment and nice local tapas can be found in Sol Soler! Around the corner from the apartment is a place called Café Pages which I would recommend serving burgers but also great tapas and lovely wines! Also try a Clara! We all agreed we would recommend the apartment and would certainly book again for next year!

This apartment is easy to access. It is enough large to stay two people. Moreover, we really feel comfortable due to clean shower room.
I found two nice restaurants near this apartment, "lo Pinyol" and "Menjars Cerveseria."
