“Funky pad, comfortable rooms, noisy but central location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2010

We hadn't originally elected to stay at Sant Jaume Apartments but at the last minute Apartments in Barcelona company contacted us to see if we minded moving. Carrer Jaume (Jaume St) was more centrally located than our first choice so we didn't mind at all, and the accommodation is new and tastefully decorated.
The street noise was a real factor though (we were on first floor) and we had to drown out the sound of party people at all hours, building/construction/rubbish collection and traffic using iPods and television.
The bathroom here was huge, built with lots of natural stone characteristic of much of the city's architecture, and the kitchen was well equipped with all the facilities we would expect from a self contained apartment.
From this location we were able to walk to La Ramblas, the Barcelonetta Waterfront, and lots of incredible art museums and galleries, including Dali and Picasso. Excellent restaurants and bars just steps away. The tiny laneways all around this location are amazing - you can explore for a long time and never see it all! Things open and close up at all hours.
The only thing to bear in mind is when trying to find the apartments, you need to enter from a small alley off Jaume St, there is no door on this street. The metro is station is only about 15 metres away so if you come by train, don't run past it and miss it (as we did)!

I saw some great reviews on this site and this seemed like the best place for location (gothic quarter) and wasn't super-pricey. The rooms also looked charming in the photos. Almost photoshopped.

Well, it was everything as expected! The whole place was immaculate and really cold not have had a better location - close to the Jaume subway station as well as Plaza Catalunya (a major subway junction as well as where the airport shuttle drops you off). And it's smack in the middle of the gothic quarter without being in a super-touristy area.

I did see some comments about hard mattresses and loud noise, but a) we found everything very comfortable (though we both prefer firmer beds) and b) we didn't really notice the loud noise (or must not have minded it).

We also accidentally left some expensive clothes in the closet after we left and went back almost a week later to retrieve it and the the staff was very helpful and they were returned just fine (I've had issues with other hotels not being able to return stuff that was left in the room so I thought this was a nice plus.)

The only drawback is that the kitchen is sort of useless since they don't provide any salt/pepper or oil even thought there are plates, pans and cutlery.
