We stayed for six nights in mid January 2012. Everything was excellent. The two gentlemen who manned the reception area could not have been more helpful. The apartment was exactly as advertised and was immaculate. One of the best features was the closet space! It was like being home for six nights - everything unpacked in the wardrobe! Our first room faced the street and we did notice street noise so we did ask to change to a different room. This request was promptly met with no fanfare. The location is in a non-touristy neighborhood. We selected Up Suites for that very reason and were not disappointed. That said, it is about a 15-20 minute walk to Placa Catalunya. However, the red line (Urgell) was about 8-10 minute walk. There are wonderful bakeries nearby as well as a grocery store and several fruit and vegetable markets. For us, Up Suites was the best of both worlds - tour all day and live like a local at night.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the street.

We stayed 3 nights. We were on the streetside and suffered a bit from the noise, this was not due to the apartment itself, but due to the fact that we were in Barcelona, with traffic continuing on all night long (and we ourselves living in a quite neighbourhood). Without even having suggested it, the very friendly receptionist proposed us another room on the back of the building, for the same price and of the same size. Everything neat and clean, better than a 4**** hotel!

We stayed at the Up Suites on our return from our Mediterranean cruise as we wanted somewhere which was fairly central without being in the middle of Las Ramblas. Great advantage of staying at Up Suites apartments is that you had a washing machine so we could do all our washing whilst we were there before we continued on our holidays after 3 weeks on tour.
We were pleasantly surprised at the room and the amenities we had to our disposal. The washing machine, dishwasher, coffee machine (buy the pods from vending machine downstairs - great coffee by the way) were a bonus, the bedroom, kitchen/dining room and lounge were tastefully decorated and there was even a small balcony which let the natural light through. The street noise was hardly noticeable as the bedroom is behind a partition from the lounge.

Atif who checked us in on arrival was fantastic in explaining the location, where everything was ie. metro how to get into the main area, where the local supermarket was, available tours and how to get around. Certainly was very helpful with any of our queries and more than willing to provide any assistance if we needed it. Organised our tickets for the Big bus tour and organised a taxi to take us to the airport. His employers should be proud of the work he does and always with a smile, which makes you feel so welcomed and comfortable to be there.

Would thoroughly recommend staying at these apartments and if we go back to Barcelona we would definately stay here again.

If you want to see Barcelona in a different way try doing a Segway Tour of Barcelona. We booked this online and we had a ball going all over the port, Barcelonetta and the Olympic area on the Segway instead of via foot. We covered so much ground and had such a fun time. Their web site is www.barcelonasegwaytour.com you will have a ball.

Also make sure you visit the food markets just off Las Ramblas called La Bocaderia. You will be amazed and the different foods you will see here. Other sites not to miss are La Pedrera, La Familia Sagrada and Park Guelle and the Monestary at Monteserrat.

Room Tip: Although the room was quiet we could still hear the traffic downstairs so I guess a room to the back of the complex would be quieter.

We were 2011/July (family with one kid) in Up Suites Bcn and we liked it a lot. We have been in many suites in Barcelona (before also many times in 4-5 star hotels.) Up Suites Bcn is very clean and modern plus great location. Two metro station quite near (2 blocks). Your are in city but it easy going district. Bars, restaurant, food shops everything close. I could live in that part of Barcelona. Up Suites Bcn suite is like Hilton of Suites. Clean and good and nice personal. I like also Hilton Barcelona but in Up Suites Bcn you feel more like living in Barcelona.

The studio rooms at Up are spacious and well designed in a good looking neighborhood around the Universitat area. The manager was extremely helpful. I liked how how the studio was laid out and well thought out use of space. The unit maximized the two floor to ceiling windows letting natural light (but not the heat) in. The kitchen was large and equipped as were the other room furniture and fixtures in the unit. Perhaps the best part of the unit was the red brick wall that was retained from the original structure, great touch in the very modern space.


The retention of the building's original red brick wall gave the space character a beauti that's absent in most hotel roomswas a beautiful design addition.
