4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013 via mobile

Nice comfortable clean basic rooms.Quiet, no traffic noise if you keep windows and balcony door shut. Central located between place d'Espanaya & place d'Catalunya. Public traffic within walking distance which brings you to all the important places. Friendly helpful staff. We had a pleasant stay here and would recommend it to our family and friends.

PROS: Clean rooms, friendly staff, average location and next to a supermarket
CONS: Expensive parking, awful breakfast. Hotel a hostel feel about it so not good value. No security whatsoever as we shared a balcony with room next door!

The front desk staff were by far the best attribute the ApartHotel has to offer. Helpful and informative. Parking an absolute nightmare and you have to walk about 3 blocks to see anything.

Room Tip: A younger persons hotel, not for families.

Had a one night stopover at the Atenea Calabria. Good points: car park underneath the building (although expensive), supermarket next door, Metro station on the next block so very easy to get to all areas of Barcelona. Room was pleasant, we had twin beds in the area with the TV and the double bed in a partitioned area. Small but serviceable kitchenette and bathroom with bath. Bad points: rock hard bed and rock hard pillows!!

This Hotel is very close to the subway and to the big Sub Connection as Catalunya and Espanya.
Room was cleaned every day, and the kitchen is very attractive because sometimes you don t want to leave to room just to eat.
Every day is very easy to move in this city with the great metro with air conditioning.
15 days spent here and every morning we were happy to find the Breakfast with many choice and pleasant employees

Perfect location, only 15 mins walk to the busy centre and la rambla, so your in for a good nights sleep! Breakfast is great, nice variety and overall great service. The staff are super friendly and helpful and the rooms are a decent size. A little pricy but would probabley stay again. :-)

The hotel is very conveniently located. It is close to the subway and the bus stop for the airport bus. A large supermarket is right next door, which was handy. Also the Placa d'Espanya is a short walk away, which was convenient for the mall, hop on-hop off bus, fountain and National Gallery.

The room was clean and comfortable. The decor is a little dated, but not really an issue. It had your typical mod cons, such as flat screen tv, Wi-Fi and sufficiently powerful air conditioner. Having a balcony was also really nice! The bathroom looked relatively modern and the shower was nice and powerful. However, there wasn't a lock on the door, but we were considerate of each other, so it wasn't too much of an issue for us. The kitchenette had most of the typical equipment you would need, except for bowls for cereal, but you could get some disposable ones from the supermarket, next door to the hotel.

The staff were always very friendly and helpful. They even left a little dish of sweets and a note in our room on our 2nd last day.

The rooms were great! The best part of it was that it had a kitchen included - be sure to take advantage of this! Although, the walls are quite thin. Luckily, our neighbors were quiet and we couldn't really hear them. We heard stories that someone had to move rooms due to the noise. If the noise is too loud, I think the staff will help you move rooms. Also, the rooms are not that clean. It is acceptable but there is still dust around the corners. Not a big problem though! There is a huge supermarket downstairs right next to the hotel and a few smaller ones around. The staff were lovely and gave us a few maps and suggested a few places for us to visit. The location is a few minutes away from the metro station, two or three blocks. Espanya (only one station away) is only a 10 minute walk (or less!) there is a huge shopping mall with a food court if you would like to go there. But I suggest to eat at the street cafés instead (outside!!) Overall, a great experience!

Room Tip: If you chose to get a balcony room, request one facing the street. We had one facing the back and it...
