The staff at Eric vokel were fantastic, they offered great support and knowledge throughout the course of our 4 night stay. Alex in particular was so helpful, friendly and spoke English very well which made it easy to find out all the necessary information.
The location was fantastic- 50m from underground train station!

I highly recommend this accommodation. The location was fantastic, just a minutes walk to the nearest tube station and two minutes walk to the Plac Catalunya. Shops, cafés, bars and restaurants are all within a few minutes walk and anywhere in the city can be reached easily by metro.

Our apartment was extremely clean and tastefully decorated. A balcony overlooked the Gran Via, but traffic noise was not a problem once the doors were closed. Staff were all friendly and helpful.

These apartments are slightly more expensive than some others in the area but I feel that they were worth the extra money.

I would definitely stay here again and I would consider their other accommodation based on my stay at the gran via apartments.

Dear guest,

First of all I would like to thank you for letting us know about your experience with us.

Here at Eric Vökel we are commited to satisfying any need our clients may require and thus we try that every single one of our rooms fulfils the quality standards we have set. Also when it comes to traffic noise we are well aware of how disturbing it can become when one tries to sleep and due to it we attempt that it can not be heard once the doors are closed.

Thanks or having chosen Eric Vökel as your accommodation in Barcelona and we look forward to seeing you soon


Best Regards,

Òscar

We had three nights in a great apartment on the third floor. The apartments are close to the Aerobus drop off at Urgell. Even though we arrived after the official check in time, reception was staffed in an efficient and friendly way, and we checked in easily.
We used the quirky lift to get to our apartment at the back of the building - clean and comfortable and cool and quiet
We walked to the attractions - easy walking for the fit and active. There was a metro stop at the end of the block if we had wanted, but we enjoyed the people watching.
Breakfast and evening food were easily found close to the apartments - the pizza place fed us well on two nights.
Would recommend for independent minded people who like the freedom of an apartment.

Apartments are well laid out and clean ( apart from the floors that could have been better mopped).

Plus points are the location - 5 mins from Plaza de Espanya , 25 minutes from Plaza de Catalunya if walking but there is an underground station right outside if you don't want the exercise.
There is a 24 hour mini market close by for the essentials
Reception staff were very helpful

A few minor things that would make the stay a little better...general thought behind the practical side of self catering

1. Provide a spatula - made cooking breakfast difficult trying to use a large spoon
2. Provide an airer for clothes ( the balconies are big enough) - there is a washing machine there that drys too but not all clothes are suitable for tumble drying
3. Provide more toilet roll
4. Provide a welcome pack for late arriving guests

The higher floors are accessed by a very old fashioned lift that apart from the quaint value, is a nightmare to use as it takes a long time to come and if someone leaves the door open when they get out, the lift won't move.

I would stay again but would probably prefer to choose somewhere a little more central to the Ports or the Plaza Catalunya as these seem better areas of town. There were several empty buildings beside the apartment block with quite a lot of graffiti- don't think it is the best part of the city.

Dear Donna,

First of all we would like to thank you for sharing your experience and your opinion both with us and with anyone who would want to wise up about our accommodations status.

We take into good consideration your recommendations and advices for our future guests. Everything you have told us is very helpful since our goal is to fulfil our client's requirements in any way we are able to. We let you know that thanks to your commentary we are already reviewing our Welcome Pack's arrangement for late arriving guests

We also inform that our quirky lift has been scheduled to be upgraded in a short time.

Moving on to our location assessment we would like to let you know that Eric Vökel Gran Via Suite's whereabouts is a mainly residential area, away from the crowd and the noise that comes from a strictly speaking city center. Moreover we are located almost next to the Pavilions that hold the yearly World Mobile Congress among plenty of other events held in Plaça Espanya, a part of the city that also counts with a police station.


Sincerely,

Òscar

clean apartment, spacious with all the appliances necessary. great location and nice people. However, the reception did give us some incorrect tourist info that made us miss the fountain show at the montjuic. But very nice indeed.
