“Horrible Service - Good Location”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2013

This apartment was absolutely terrible. Beyond the location, it was not a good value for the money. The Air Conditioners did not work. We complained immediately and they said they would send a repairman over. They claimed the repairman came while we were sleeping, but they LIED because someone was home at all times.. We spent the week in Spain without AC and had to buy fans. The walls were dirty, and the bathroom smelled. Additionally, some of the lamps did not work. The bell downstairs does not work so we always had to coordinate so that someone could go downstairs and let in a member of our party. The wifi dropped the signal every five minutes. There were 5 people in the apartment, which they knew about, but only provided two sets of keys and wouldn't provide a third set. The door lock is not working properly and we had to spend 20 minutes trying to get in. Furthermore, the door does not open from the inside if you lock it from the outside. So basically, if one member of your party forgets and locks the door from the outside, and there is a fire, you won't be able to get out of the apartment. They also did not communicate the check-out date so the cleaning lady came one day early and walked in on us early in the morning. I've been to Spain 4 times and this is the worst experience I have ever had.

nothing like the photos.... terrible damp smell in the kitchen, some dirty dishes in the cupboards, one dirty towel in the suspicious washing machine, no salt or sugar, nothing but a little dishes and washing up liquid, just one sponge, no cloth. The kettle isn't working properly and is dangerous (won't stop automatically most of the time). The shower in one bathroom has no shower curtain, the other bathroom has a bath with curtain but damp on the wall and no bath plug, no soap. The sofa bed, had no proper bedlinen for the "mattress" which was party made of the sofa cushion. One metal bedframe is extremely noisy, and the worse for me was no mattress protector..... just a single sheet on the mattress. Only 2 toilets rolls for 5 for 3 days..... The floor were not very clean and there is nothing to clean the floors but a very smelly mop (responsible for the terrible smell in the kitchen). Only 4 seats at the table when the appartment is rented for 6...Only positive points were the location, it's very handy, and the wireless was working (but cutting a lot) Would definitely not recommend! Worse accommodation we ever had.

The location of the hotel is good, the conditions of the room should be improved, needs to be refresched. The keys have to been picked in a different hotel, about 10-15 minutes away by foot, which is painful with all the lagguage.

Perfect location,great for metro,shopping and site seeing. Apartment we had was at the back of the building so very quite and had two bathrooms,but of course the view was the back of the next building. but you don't go to sit in the apartment looking out of the windows!!!!
Our apartment was a little dusty because I think it had not been used for a few weeks.But otherwise clean and practical

Room Tip: Apartment 2 floor 3 was higher spec than apartment 2 floor 1.The one in the pics online is an aprtme...
