“amazing stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2015

I chose this apartment while traveling in Barcelona from Jan 28 to Feb 01. Two bedroom, two bathroom, large dining area and full kitchen, which are perfectly met what we needed for a four people company. Approximately takes one hour to get to this apartment from airport (via train and metro). The nearest metro station is Sagrada Familia, which is less than 5 minutes walk distance. Right across the apartment is the chain supermarket Condis. You can find vegetable, fruits and many other food here. It's quite safe staying here. I will definitely visit again. Highly recommended.

The MH apartments in Barcelona have a selection of places throughout the city. Some of them actually really nice, but we stayed in the ones near Sagrada Familia.

The apartment is very basic which is ok, but what is disturbing is that it is also very dirty. Curtains haven't been washed since 1995 as it looks like, te towels low quality, dirty "white-ish" stains in the sofa and the bathrooms are just plain dirty.

My suggestion is to spend a bit more and avoid these apartments.

Best thing about this place is the location; top floor apartment has a view of the Sagrada (even if you are overlooking others balconies), it's a two minutes walk to the Metro stations, there's lots of small supermarkets, bars, bakeries and fast food outlets in the immediate vicinity and you're pretty much well set for wherever you want to go in Barcelona.

The apartment itself was alright, few rough edges but it was clean, stocked with enough utensils and cleaning items to last you a few days. Wi-fi wasn't the best but unlike a lot of places it was A) Available and B) Free, so to have it at all was a major bonus. Satellite TV available but only really picked up German channels, again not a major issue.

Check-in was extremely easy, after ringing to confirm our arrival at the airport we were met at the front door to the apartment, shown to our room, shown around and then given details to make our stay easier. Price was extremely fair for what we got.

The good...you are 3 minutes walking distance from Sagrada Familia, restaurants, metro, small grocery store close by. Carlos greeted us and supplied us with a map and information

The bad...you have to read the fine print; we rented a one bed room apartment, I guess you think that the bedroom would have either a double bed or 2 singles...no...one single bed...so we ended up sleeping on the hide a bed for 7 nites...not great; Rebecca on the phone at the customer desk was of no use and unflexible. The décor is simple and does not look at all like the pictures on the web site.

The not great...3 wine glasses, 3 forks, some dishes, 3 rolls of toilet paper...no salt no sugar...so the bare minimum. A badly designed shower, not even a spot to place your soap bar...and internet was at best bad and slow.

You can do better in Barcelona for that price.

Apreciado cliente primero de todo agradecer su tiempo en comentar su estancia, el edificio MH Apartments cuenta con diferentes tipos de apartamentos, hay apartamentos de 2 habitaciones y de 1 habitación.
Es importante leer la descripción del apartamento ya que queda muy claro que este apartamento cuenta con una habitación individual, osea una cama pequeña, y una sofa cama doble en el salón.
En el caso de haber tenido disponibilidad se podían haber movido a otro apartamento, pero lamentandolo no era el caso y no se le podia ofrecer cambio.
En cualquier caso la descripción asi como las fotos son exactamente como en la web de MH se detalla.

We paid extra to stay in the apartment with the large terrace overlooking the S.Familia and whilst it was indeed big what you don't see on the photos is that you are overlooked by about 10 other apartments and you yourself are overlooking dozens of other balconies and terraces. The terrace only had a small table and two basic (non-reclining) chairs to sit on so you can't even make proper use of the terrace. They would benefit from putting some sun loungers out there to make it more appealing.

The apartment itself is a bit tatty with paint chipped everywhere and a general lack of care paid to everything. Other people have mentioned it but there is also a distinct smell of the drains in the apartment which I thought was mainly from the dishwasher as it obviously doesn't get used or cleaned on a regular basis. All in all I think you can get a much better deal on Airbnb for a nicer apartment direct from the owner. This place is very much a corporate set up and the lack of care for the apartments was obvious.

The apartment is in a great location, which is approx 1-2 blocks from La Sagrada Familia and the subway! There are lots of grocery shops, if you don't feel like spending money at a restaurant AND there are plenty of cafes and restuarants nearby too! The apartment was clean, we stayed for 3 days and 2 nights. A definite plus about this place was the FREE wi-fi! Won't give this place an Excellent rating because the only downfall about this place was that it was hard to contact someone when we first arrived...took them a while to get us "checked-in" otherwise the apartment is great!

Everything was very clean, the apartment was very spacious and comfortable with everything we needed to stay a few days. The shower screen was new and the staff was helpful and responsive.

The location was nice, not far from the city center and the area was very well comunicated with buses and the subway very near. I definitely recommend this apartment to anyone planning to visit Barcelona.
