I decided to let my 14yr old stepson write the review to see what he would say:- Firstly there is wifi!... Followed by a clean room and bathroom being kept clean and tidy by the workers everyday, towels and bedsheets clean each day and plenty of space to store your clothes and other things you may be taking abroad with...

The stuff is OK. the rooms are one bedroom but they adapt for two. super small , noisy and super warm. the... More

Great location! The free breakfast was a nice bonus and the kitchen provided in the room really added to our stay. I had read previous reviews that the rooms were really hot and no fans provided. We had 2 fans in our room which were really helpful as it was warm. The residence is really conveniently located to many attractions... More

In room is small kitchen (fridge, cooker, some cups, plates and pot). Room and bathroom... More

Just a kind of "hostal" with the great value of a little kitchen in the room. Also good breakfast and location! The staff was generally very helpfull and english speaker. Very bad that u can connect only one device using wifi.

The location was a good one and hence it was a choice. For the price I paid, they can do a lot better. Upon check in, especially if you have taken an early morning train or flight, doesn't matter, they make you wait till 1.00 pm and no considerations. It s a common sight that people with heavy bags and... More

The accomodation is in a good location within 10-20 minutes walk of most attractions or a Metro station. The area was relatively quiet although some of the guests were quite noisy on occasion.

You need to know that the Residence is not a hotel. As a residence is a very good place. The Residence is near to "Marina" metro station. You can walk if you want. For example, i walked 20 minutes to reach the center of the city (Plaza Catalunya).I walked 10 minutes to reach the nearest beach. You can take the... More

Neighborhood Profile
Ciutadella / Vila Olimpica
The sounds of Marina Olympica's rocking boats and clicking mastheads swaying to and fro set an impressive backdrop for Ciutadella and Villa Olimpica. Follow the aromas of garlic, wine, and fresh local fish to the various restaurants running along the marina. A grand bronze fish statue soaring high above serves as a beacon to those searching for the renowned Casino Barcelona or the extremely popular nightclubs which practically lie on the beach itself.
