“Modern Suite, Excellent Service and Location in Barcelona”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

Avoid the busy and crowded tourist hotels and areas. Instead, rest and relax in the beautiful Eixample neighborhood at Ako Suite Hotel - great restaurants, shops and easy walk/or public transportation to major landmarks. It's all about the amazing GAUDI, friendly people and delicious Spanish and Catalan foods and wines.

For our family of four with two teenage daughters, Ako Suites treated us like royalty and made our Barcelona stay perfect. The front office was most helpful and accommodating for our first international family trip. The suites were very modern, comfortable, clean with the latest amenities and features i.e. air conditioning to cool us during the Summer travels. Also, the area is quiet as is the hotel rooms.

I would highly recommend AKO Suites for it’s in a great location, Eixample neighborhood that’s mostly locals, close to the University, 15 minute walk to Las Ramblas, Gaudi’s La Pedrera and subway/train stations.

From a cost perspective, staying at Ako is less expensive or comparable to staying at a nice hotel with two rooms (most European hotel rooms have 2 adults/1 child standard). Big advantages are the kitchenette, living/sitting room with TVs.

Our favorite restaurants within walking distance are Maitea Taberna, Paco Merago, Bosque Palermo and Cornelia & Company. Another bonus is the very clean self service laundry facility next door. Barcelona is beautiful and we can’t wait to visit the city and stay at Ako in the future.

Excellent service was received at this Hotel. I travelled to Barcelona with a relation and a wheelchair bound adult in early June 2013. The room provided was well presented and each day it was cleaned to a very high standard. We asked for and were provided with a toaster and any request was met with courtesy and efficiency. The bathroom facility was suitable for a disabled guest and it made a huge difference to the standard of comfort we enjoyed. Jose the Manager did everything he could to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. He even gave us a link to a tourist site listing places that could accomodate our wheelchair. Gemma at the Front Desk was also hugely helpful. Very enjoyable stay and I would hope to return later this year. Anna C.

This new small apartment hotel is well located 5 minutes walk to the Universitat Metro and about ten minutes to Le Rambla. The hotel is in a relatively quite street, but there is a gay bar across the road, however it only seems to open on a Saturday night. The rooms are generous sizes, the bathroom is definately different with frosted but see through glass and the bedroom comes with 2 single beds side by side. The living room has 2 small chairs, and the kitchen is reasonably well equiped, however you will need to ask them for dishwashing liquid and cloth and they do not provide tea, coffee or milk which is now pretty standard for hotels, particularly as this one is rated as four star. We had a room at the back of the hotel which was quiet. There is a Supermarket across the road and a laundremat next door, and a good restaurant in the street. Didn't try the continental breakfast as this was 12 euro, better to go the Boqueria Market or Carrafours on the Ramblas and stock up on cheap food. The reception staff all spoke English and were very helpful.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back, no view just adjoining apartments.

The hotel is modern, new and clean. It's an apartment style, boutique hotel. The location is good, walking distance to La Rambla. There's a laundry next door and a few mini-marts nearby which is very convenient. The staffs are friendly and helpful. I enjoyed my 3 nights stay with Ako Suite Hotel.

It is more like a boutique apartment hotel. Contemporary design and new, small for hotel but comes with spacious rooms. We have a double bed rooms with a kitchen attached with some space for living room. Every thing is new and clean. I had a pleasant sleep and good showers. Receptionists were friendly and spoke English. Metro just near by, 20 min walk to La Rambla.

room : very big, minimal, with nice furniture and a praktical kitchinette
view : unfortunately the view was dissapointing. We were facing a wall (1st floor) and the higher levels were facing the nearby flats.
location : very good, in the center of barcelona, 10 minutes walk to las ramblas
breakfast: not included in the rate, you can order extra with 12E/person but its average and with the same price you can eat fantastic in the nearby bistros
service: kind and helpfull

Room Tip: try to book a room in the 3rd or the 4th floor. the view is slightly better

+ New hotel with modern design and clean big light rooms
+ Good location: 5 min walk to University tube & 10 min to Catalonia square
+ Friendly and knowledgeable hotel staff: they provided all necessary info about transfer options from the airport to the hotel. They speak at least English, Russian and Spanish
+ Daily room cleaning
+ Own kitchen
- We had a early flight and they forgot to order a taxi, anyway it came in 5 mins

Room Tip: Better not to book the room near the lift as you may hear it while sleeping
