“Very clean apartment in spectacular location”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

Nice entry hall, pleasant and efficient multi-lingual reception staff. Good sized room, spot-less clean carpet and tiled bathroom/kitchenette area. Bathroom and kitchen counters in granite, kitchen corner equipped with fridge, microwave, toaster, dishwasher, stove with 2 burners. Very comfortable beds with duvet cover. Since this is an apartment, bed and laundry are not done, but we actually liked this as nobody was entering the room. Wifi works perfectly. Breakfast can be had but is very expensive, there are loads of nearby places to have an inexpensive breakfast. Parking at eu25 is very expensive, but that goes with the area. Overall great experience and we will be looking for Citadines again!

Great location right in the heart of the action. A fantastic fruit market and supermarket are opposite and a myriad of cafes and bars in the immediate proximity. The room itself was a little tired looking and the temperature could not be regulated, but it had a well equipped kitchen and free WiFi. The street noise was minimal despite the hotels location and the staff were helpful and friendly. Would stay here again

Everything was perfect , the place , localization , service.
Worth every penny. Will be my place to stay in Barcelona.
Ideal for short or long stay.
I never thought to stay at Apart-hotel would be so convenient.
Just the localization justify your stay.

The location is perfect - right in the middle of the Rambla, about a two minute walk from Placa Catalunya. We stayed in a studio room with a large window overlooking the Rambla, which is great fun watching all the action below. We are not noise sensitive, but for those who are, there are quiet rooms at the back facing a courtyard. The room had a small but well-equiped kitchen with 2 hotplates, a toaster, electric kettle, dishwasher, all the dishes, cutlery and cooking implements we needed. Breakfast was available downstairs (cost not included) but we preferred to do our own in the room. For snacks and light meals, supplies were available at the Carrefour supermarket just across the street and the wonderful Boqueria Market a few steps further down the Rambla. There was a free internet connection in the room as well as computers and a printer downstairs.

Staff were very friendly and helpful. We had free maid service twice during our stay, which was fine for us. Extra housekeeping is available for those who want it at a charge. There was an iron and board in the room and coin operated laundry machines in the basement, but we didn't need to use these. All in all, there was nothing more that we could have wanted, except the hairdryer was rather weak.

The rooms are a little worn - the carpet showed signs of age. The Citadines is apparently going to renovate soon. In the meantime, the price value is excellent. Some of the critical reviews we read seem to have expected 5 star quality at 3 star prices!

We will definitely stay again next time we come to Barcelona.

Room Tip: For great views, choose a room on the Rambla in front. For quiet, choose a room at the back overloo...

we stayed in citadines, paris before this and had good experience there; hence when we booked citadines la rambla, we were expecting something similar. unfortunately, citadines la rambla was far below expectations. we stayed in a supposed family apartment for 4 people so we expected beds for 4 of us. what we had was 1 double bed in the bedroom and 1 sofa bed in the living room. the tap in the sink and the bidet had totally opposite directions for hot and cold water. usually cold water when tap is turned to the right but instead hot water came out so burnt our hands several times. the tap heads were rusty. when the shower gel ran out, we were told we had to wait till the next morning for the housekeeping to come. one has to pay euro 11 just to get the apartment clean which is the first time we have heard off. some of the electrical sockets were dangling out of the wall. we felt shortchanged cos we paid more than euro 200 per night . the aparment is old and not maintained at all. except for the location and the fact they had a little kitchen which was good, we will not come back to this place in the future. there are many places along la rambla which provides value for money accomodation.

Thank you for your feedback.

We read with much concern about the unpleasant experience you encountered during your previous stay with us.
While we constantly strive to maintain the highest standards of customer satisfaction, regrettably, on this occasion, we have fallen short of our key objective. I therefore wish to extend to you my sincere apologies.

I would like to assure you that these are isolated cases and are not indicative of our usual service standards.
Citadines Ramblas Barcelona will be undergoing a renovation program during 2013, I hope
that you would consider staying with us again in the future, once the refurbishment of this residenc is complete, giving us another opportunity to be of service to you.

Best Regards,
