Spent 4 nights here and loved the apartment. Very clean, well equipped and comfortable. Location was great with metro, cafe's and supermarket close by but well away from the hassle of las ramblas. Easy to get to all the tourist attractions. Would definitely stay here again.

I stayed at this aparthotel for 3 nights. It must have opened recently, as everything is brand new, the apartment was really spacious, the old elevator was cute but slow, (I wouldn't want to experience waiting for this elevator during peak times, there are at least 8 floors and 4 apartments per floor, that could make for a lot of people needing to use it). The only issue I took is that there was hardly any staff around, and only a night porter between 6pm and 9am, which is quite odd for a 4-star establishment. With your confirmation (so you have no way of knowing at the outset) you'll get a note after 6pm, you may need to use a check in kiosk, again something I wouldn't want to wrestle with after a long flight, in case something went wrong (you won't get access unless you pay upfront at check-in, what happens if the kiosk can't read your card, technical glitches do happen). I think this place needs to be staffed appropriately, for health and safety reason, if nothing else.

Dear Mr Alessandro,

Thank you for you nice comment for the apartments

On the elevator, the building in the center of Barcelona and Example area has this peculiarity, are historic buildings and should retain their value. It is a precious ascesor 1900 that works perfectly and its maximum capacity is 4 people.

We are a group of apartments that we make customers feel at home, that's always our obejetivo. Our reception hours are from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.. As you said we have a security staff the remaining hours. If a customer arrives after 18 hours we have a machine autocheck in as easy to use as an ATM. If any client had a probelma with this simple method, we have a consistency phone 24 hours and always we respond to all calls quickly solucionandolas.

Hope to see you back with us, really will assist unplacer.

Kind regards.

We stayed for 3 nights in the penthouse with a family of 5. It was great. Beautiful and really clean appartment. Friendly staff. We liked the luggage service on the last day so we could enjoy the city a little longer after checking out at 12.00.

The apartment ist completely new and fully equipped with everything you need (kitchen, dishwasher, washing machine,...). It's extremely clean, the furniture ist modern and cozy and the location ist great (metro station L1 is just around the corner, in 5 minutes you can walk to Plaza Espanya and in 20 minutes to Plaza Catalunya). I can totally recommend the apartment, the value for money is great. Also the staff was extremely nice and helpful.

Lovely and spacious Apartment at great location.
seems that it was built with great love and care.
Sorry to point out that maintenance was very basic-almost poor.

Dear guest,

Thank you for your review, we are glad to see that you had a nice stay in our apartment.

We took note of your suggestion adding some coffee pads in the welcome package that we already provide (sponge, soap, tablets for dishwasher and washing machine) but as it exists a lot of different kind of coffee it is a little dificult to make a choice. We also inform you that you can buy these coffee pads in a supermarket nearby for less than 5€ for 12 pads.

We hope to see you back again.

Kindest Regards,

Alexandre Petignot
