My party of 10 (2 elderly parents, family with 1 child aged 1, family with 2 children aged 4 and 6, and 1 single adult) booked 2 3-bedroom apartments. They were across the landing on the same floor. Only complaint was the small lift, so we took about 6 trips to move the luggage. But the apartments were brilliant. Very clean and modern with all the right facilities like washer, dryer, cooking hob, microwave and sufficient crockery. Good views and very nice rooms, comes with balcony. Complimentary breakfast if you book online at the deli a few doors away, so were very children friendly. My kids even got free sweets from the lady there. Would definitely recommend to any family. Located on gran via which has sufficient grocery store and restaurants. But not much in the way of major shopping (for eg, didn't see any Zara or Mango around)

Dear family,

Thank you so much for your review, we loved hear that you had a nice stay if us.

Thank you also for mentioned that booking on our website page we offer you the breakfast for free in a bakery next door.

We are glad to see that the children spent great time in the apartments also.

Our apartment are located between Plaza Cataluña and Plaza España in a residential area of Barcelona but only few minutes walking (less taking the metro next door) to the city centre. We also inform you that there is a shopping mall few minutes walking (Las Arenas) where you could find for example a Mango store.

Do not hesitate to contact us for anything else you may need.

Kindest Regards,

Alexandre Petignot

The apartment we got was fully equipped and warm (we didn't even use the A/C). The bed was wide (which is great) though a bit hard but it didn't bother us too much.
We used the kitchen since we stayed for 6 nights and it was very good except maybe the lack of basic stuff such as sugar, salt, pepper and maybe some cooking oil. The service was great, especially the second shift guy Alex who helped us with restaurant recommendation and planning a trip to Figures to see Dali's museum.
The place was very quiet and near a metro station (line 1) which was great.
The elevator was small and had 3 doors so not very comfortable but not that bad.

Room Tip: higher floors need to use elevator which is small and has 3 ! doors.

Central, stylish, modern, spacious and comfortable accommodation. The apartment was immaculately clean and very well appointed. From our top floor apartment we had lovely views over the city and there were two small terraces, one with sunbeds (though we were travelling in January so didn't take advantage of those!)

Everything you'd need in self-catering was there (though we only stayed 2 nights so didn't need most of it) including a well-equipped kitchen, washer-dryer and dishwasher. The apartment was immacuately clean with a stylish, modern design. Flat-screen TV, free wifi and landline phone available and helpful information about local amenities were provided in the apartment. There's also a computer downstairs which is available free of charge, and lockers for luggage storage after check-out. Check-in and check-out was simple and reception staff were friendly and helpful.

My only minor niggle is that the coffee maker provided was a Nestle Dolce Gusto machine so we needed to buy pods (lots of packaging waste, not good for the environment), there were no instructions provided, and then discovered we couldn't use it anyway because the machine leaked everywhere and didn't make a cup of coffee. A cafetiere or filter machine would have been the more environmentally friendly and useful option. Not a major deal though as there is plenty of reasonably priced coffee available from the cafes in the area. There isa supermarket nearby as well as smaller convenience shops.

The option to pay a little extra for a welcome pack of teabags, coffee, milk, biscuits etc might be something worth the management considering. It's nice to have while guests get their bearings and work out the local area.

The flats are just a block from Rocafort Metro station and it's easily walkable to La Rambla, so it's a great location. Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes is a very busy thoroughfare so be prepared for some traffic noise but I didn't find it overly disturbing.

I heard no noise from other guests, the beds are very comfortable and when the mechanical shutters are down in the bedroom the room is pitch dark so I slept very well.

The building is very secure, with entry controlled via entryphone and key cards.

I'd highly recommend this value-for-money accommodation for independent travellers and families in Barcelona.

Room Tip: We were on the top floor which had lovely views over the city.

There is not enough space to share all the accolades due Eric Vokel apartments and staff. All week we have been thanking our friend who found the apt.

The apt is spacious and has everything we needed: free Wi Fi, equipped kitchen, hair dryer, TV, good security and more---and just a block from the Metro

There are several interesting things to do or see within walking distance, too
The final detail is one of the most important: manager Irina and receptionist Anna have gone out of their way to answer our questions and advise us on what to do ( we asked them).
We quickly learned that their advice is top-notch and good to follow

Enjoy your stay!
