The Urban Suites
Ranked #46 of 740 Specialty Lodging in Barcelona
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 13, 2014

We stayed here for 5 nights in January 2014 having looked at more than 50 Hotels as well as other apartments.

We were delighted with our find. At our age we liked the idea of eating out at lunchtime instead of in the evening and using the break as a rest from our various outings in this amazing City.

The apartment was so well equipped and made it easy for us to have breakfast at a time to suit ourselves and then go back to the apartment for a self catering evening meal.

The Staff are very friendly and helpful. Nothing is too much for them. The location of Urban Suites is exceptional - just minutes from Sants Railway Station (our route in from the Airport) and likewise just 300 metres away from 2 Metro Stations with access to cheap transport around Barcelona.

Thank you Isabella and team. We had a ball visiting you and Barcelona.

Room Tip: We experienced no problems with noise but did ask for a room looking over the courtyard.

We had a great four night stay at the Urban Suites, over new year. The apartment (for a family of four) was attractive, quiet, clean, and spacious. Isobel, the director, was extremely helpful and friendly throughout our stay. There's a great little bakery almost next door, where you can eat delicious cakes. The restaurant Koxkera is walkable, and well worth it for the paella and Albarino. The metro is five minutes away, and you can be in the old town in about 20 minutes. And there's a very good supermarket three minutes down the street. We would certainly come back, to Barcelona and the Urban Suites.

Good location, hidden away from nearby main streets.

Nice room which had wear and tear that haven't been attended to.

Great, big terrace to have your meals and to lie in the sun. Unfortunately not looked after but we still enjoyed our afternoon tea and naps up there. One could utilize the room terrace more.

The air con was too loud for our taste. Also, comparing the door electrics with other hotels, using the card to open the door produced too much noise.

Staff have been friendly and very helpful.

PS The kitchen could have been equipped with better quality items, appliances, utensils, etc.

Overall we enjoyed our stay.

Dear Sohoguys,

Thanks a lot for your review but we would like to clarify that our doors work with keys, not with cards and the air con is totally silent, it does not make any single noise.

We hope to see you in the future for you to see that what we say is true.

Best regards,
The Urban Suites team

My first time visit to Barcelona was painted with such a wonderful experience I had over the last 5 days staying at The Urban Suites. This place is NOT just the hardware but above that is the SOFTWARE... The Employees Izabell and Raquel the two trully genuine and hospitable persons representing the resident of Barcelona with warm and helpful attitude . From the moment I arrived to the very last day before departure they are always there to help . Advises on the last minute tour i wanted to do before heading to the Airport , until helping me sourcing the Espellete Chilli powder and ensuring my laundry was in the room , everything with a can do attitude !! and being an employee in the luxury 5 star resort my self this is very special to experience something like this in this establishment. Bravo . keep it up .

The unit i stayed in was spacious, modern kitchen , clean bathroom and comfort bed as well. I would love to see a safety deposit box as well on my next year trip.

Close to Plaza Espanya and Barca Sants station , while Metro is 100 m away. stores and Pizza corner are meters away.

Highly reccommend

Room Tip: 213 was very good

Great location from which to explore the city with public transportation easily accessible and some interesting neighbourhood areas to explore on foot nearby. The suites are as advertised; well equipped clean and on the whole comfortable. A couple of minor observations, street noise can be a bit of an irritant at times, but I guess thats pretty much unavoidable in any big city ? the 'king size' bed is in fact 2 singles pushed together and made up using king size bed linen, not an issue if you keep to your designated side ! . Louver blinds in various shades of pink abound throughout the suite and give the otherwise modern, minimalist look a distictive 1980's corporate office feel. Friendly and helpful staff

Best location, very close to main train station, where u can access train, metro, and taxi. Room is better than average hotel room, with kitchen and free washing and drier machine. Very clean, and friendly staff. ATM machine is just outside building. Wide TV and radio, with several satellite channel. Quiet, since it's not close to main street.

We were unlucky to have our toilet flush broken just after a while. Wish the could fixed it quickly.

We have spent in this really comfortable, absolutely well positioned and superbly equipped home away from home, 2 weeks while exploring our favorite city. Eisa and her staff made sure that we enjoyed each day and fulfilled every request and answered every one of our many questions. If your are sensitive to street noise be sure to ask for a courtyard facing apartment, of which there are few. We look forward to our next stay at Urban Suites.
Thank you very much to Eisa and her staff. Marc and Veronica
