Reviewed May 31, 2013

We stayed 6 friends in a 2 bedroom apartement. the apartment is big and we had more than enought space. The roof terrace was really nice, but we had to pay 5 euro per person to use it. that was a huge minus, but even though i would definitly stay there again. It is a long walk from barcelonetta and city centrum. the beach is a 1 min walk and we had a nice view of the sea from the livingroom.

Our family of 5 just made our second visit to Barcelona. We absolutely love the place. We stayed in an apartment in Eixample the first time which was very pleasant, but just lacked something. This time we stayed at the Lugaris aprtment in Poblenou and it was brilliant. The apartment was only 2 bedrooms so one of the kids used the sofa-bed which was fine. The apartment is clean, big, open and light. It is just a short walk across the road to the beach and park, 10 minutes to the metro station and 5minutes to the Mercadona supermarket. The Poblenou district is fantastic - it really buzzes with activity. The local restaurants are great. The Lugaris office staff were very helpful and accommodating. We wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else next time in Barcelona.

I booked Lugaris on line and didn't realise that it was an apartment. However, it wasn't difficult to find and the staff is very helpful. Not only did they give us many maps, but the staff also marked the main attractions and showed us to our apartment.

We got a two bedroom apartment with sea views in every room on every direction! The sitting room was very spacious and the kitchen was fully equipped. We didn't cook but could see that it was such an ideal place for long term stay!

The apartment is not far from restaurants, shops and supermarkets. We've travelled for a month and it's really lovely to stay out of the city centre for a change. The washer and dryer is another bonus. Just makes life easy when you are travelling.

I'd recommend Lugaris to everyone.

This place was perfect for a family & friends trip to Barcelona. Good service, nice people in the reception and a clean, lovely apartment! The little distance from the city`s center doesn`t matter, it is easy and convenient to take a bus or the metro.

Lugaris was perfect for a two-night weekend away, but any longer and we'd start missing towel-changing and room-cleaning service. However, this we knew and that's why there were no disappointments with our stay.
Most things have been mentioned in previous reviews. Here're a couple that mattered to us.
On the plus side:
Location is great - only 5-7 minute walk from Poblenou metro station (yellow line 4), which is 5 or 6 stops away from Jaume I, the Old Town. As we only had hand luggage we decided not to take taxi from the airport. We bought T10 travel cards (a carnet of 10 tickets, which can be used on the airport train as well!), got on the train, 25 minutes later we are in Passeig de Gracia, there we changed over to metro and 30 minutes later we are in the apartment. Taxi from the Old Town at night is about 10 euros.
The flat is in a brand new apartment building, just opposite the beach. I think half of the building is still vacant and for rent/sale. There's a big-ish grocery shop on the way to apartment, so we stocked up on wine and basic breakfast suppllies.
The flat is tiny, probably more fair to class it as a decent size hotel suite rather than flat. But for 2 ppl it's perfect. All new and clean - plates/glasses, dishwasher, nice big fridge - just what we'd expected.
What we didn't like:
They advertise free wi-fi. There's wi-fi in theory, but the signal is so weak and only available in one corner of the flat that it's not fair to even say they have wi-fi. Annoyed me more that it didn't work than if it wasn't available at all.
Minor thing: the shower is good, but the bathtub (where shower is) is tiny and there's no rubber mat to put in it. It gets very slippery and it won't be long before someone slips in the shower, bangs one's head and sues Lugaris for it. Quite rightly too! I mentioned it when we were checking out and hopefully they'll sort it out.
Only 2 bath towels. Quite well-used/cheap ones. For two nights' stay it was enough, but any longer and I'd feel we need more/better/cleaner towels.
Other than that - everything was fine, so even these two niggles won't put us off chosing Lugaris for short trips to Barcelona. Still give it five stars!

If you like a city but want to see its real inhabitants and its real way of life, you need to be here. Lugaris Sea is in Poble Nou, a former fishing village, now incorporated in Barcelona. You are 3 minutes from the Bogatell beach and 10 minutes (shortest walk) or 15/20 minutes (walk over The Rambla del Poble Nou) from the metrostation Poble Nou. We also walked from Lugaris to the city centre (1,5 hour walk next to the beach). The appartment is very new and very clean and had everything you need: fridge, deep-freeze, Nespresso, microwave, oven, dishwasher, etc and if you can't stop yourself: a washmachine, an iron and ironing-board.

If you love a big, noisy hotel in the middle of 100.000 tourists, go somewhere else.

Lugaris Sea was the perfect place to stay only a ten min bus ride into the main city center. It was so nice to be on the water away from all of the loud busy city life but have the option to move about with ease. The hotel was extremely accommodating and I can't say enough about how much I enjoyed this place. I look forward to staying with Lugaris in the future. Bravo!
