“Do not stay here !!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

I was here with my family in August and the apartment was hot, no internet. The towels were so thin and used. The apartment was not that clean. I could not wait to get out. Would not recommend this place.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

We stayed for 4 nights I.e. my wife, daughter and I. Let me first mention the positives - great location, well equipped with all the kitchen equipment and a fair amount of space when compared to a hotel. Essentially, a home away from home in case you so desire. But then, that is it.

The apartment is quite elemetary, a bit run down and needs a nice coat of paint. Does not really make you feel great if you see walls with marks all over giving you a sense of all the previous occupants and a TV that was probably bought in the 80s! The other most important aspect - there shall be NO housekeeping during the stay. Except for the first day when the attendant came to check us in as well as the housekeeper was seen, we did not see anybody for the next 4 days.

Having travelled to Barcelona in the past, I knew the area quite well. MH Apartment Guell is an excellent location for sightseeing throughout Barcelona. Being located on a side road of La Rambla and close to Liceu train station it was an excellent location. As this was a city location, we didn't spend much time in the apartment, only at night time for sleeping. The apartment is quite basic, but that is not really a problem considering you don't go to Barcelona to stay indoors. The walls are paper thin and you can hear everything in the hall corridors, but this was something we got used to over our stay and adpated to. One thing we did miss in the apartment was English television for late at night, just to watch something to wind down and WIFI. With regards to returning to MH Apartments Guell, I will certainly keep it on the cards, great location for exploring the city. The check-in procedure was ok too. Within the apartment there maybe was a lack of a few pieces of furniture such as mirrors. The walls could also do with a paint, to make it look a lot more tidier. I would recommend this apartment, and for you to stay here as it is a great location for exploring the city.

Booked 2 bedroom apartments for 4 nights in May. No hassle checking in, called provided number from the airport and the person was waiting for us right outside the place in 30 min time. Nice, clean, right in the middle of all the action. Will stay there again as I want to come back to Barcelona for sure. Quite reasonable priced as well.

The stay in the apartment was very fine, most because of it's central lacation to the La Ramble and the sea.
About the flat it looked better in the pictures than in real. It could have been more homey and sone more furnitures. What about two good chairs in the livingroom? Some pictures on the wall? And the televison was out of order. So a new TV and music system could have been nice.
All in alle our stay in Barcelona and the apartment was very good and we look forward to come back next year.

Our family spent a few days at the Guell Apts - we stayed in apt #4- As others have mentioned, the location is great. Very close by to La Rambla and many fine restaurants/bars etc. We found the apt to be fairly clean and functional, and no noise issues. Keep in mind that this isn't a 5 star hotel- Yes the floor plan is a bit unique, as the 2nd bedroom is really part of the living room, but has a partition wall dividing it, and yes the bathrooms are small but, again the location is great.
Two items for feedback-
1-There is no Wi-Fi capabilities- this is really inconvienient for travellers
2-We fond the beds to be extremely firm (in other words hard as rock)

My clients stayed at the MH Apartments Guell in Barcelona for 2-nights (Sept. 23-25, 2011). They said the apartment was in a great location within the city and quite close to the cruise port, but that the area was extremely noisy. The apartment entrance was on a busy street, and it was hard to get to sleep at night because of this. The only time a representative from the apartments met them was upon check-in, and they were quite disappointed that they were never checked-up on. The apartment itself was quite nice however - very nice decor and comfortable rooms. Please be advised that to check-in at the apartments, a meeting has to be set up between you and one of their representatives prior to your arrival.

Dear guest,

First of all we want to thank you your time in review your stay in one of our apartments in MH Apartments Guell.

As you see the Ramblas area is the noisiest area of Barcelona and we invite you if you come to Barcelona again, to stay in other of our 10 buildings in Barcelona, centrally as well but probably quieter.

But hopefully we appreciate your accurate review and we are proud you had a nice stay in our city.

Our kindest regards,

The MH Apartments Team
