We had a wonderful time at the Urban Suites. We traveled as a family of four, and it was difficult to find a big enough hotel room in Barcelona. But I won't bother to look for next time we-re in Barcelona - this is the place to stay.
The Urban Suites are short-term rental apartments rather than a hotel, so we were surprised and very grateful when Isa took the trouble to come back twice on the weekend to receive our lost luggage. She turned what could have been a frustrating vacation into a wonferfully easy one. Thank you, Isa!
The rooms are wonderful, very clean and modern. Even the sofabed for my kids was new and clean (one of my tests of a good hotel). There is enough storage, and the kitchen facilities are nice. We have no complaints about the facilities.
The Urban Suites is near Montjuic, a short walk to the south. Two metro lines have stops close by (Sants Estaçio to go to Sagrada Familia, Tarragona to get to the old city). So you get the convenience of being near the sights without the noise.
We found a bakery we liked on the corner of c/Valencia and Llança for breakfast pastries. Nearby c/Creu Coberta is a local (non-touristy) commercial street with shops, including a small hole-in-the-wall Indian restaurant where we got good takeout one evening.
I highly recommend the Urban Suites.More
