Very large, clean and whimsical decorated apartment. Our family of 6 (kids 10-15) stayed here for 4 nights after our original rental apartment was not available. We booked online with booking.com the same day and found rates to be reasonable for last minute. 250Euro a night. this price did not include the spa or breakfast, but we knew this going into it. There was a large grocery store across the street so we could easily get groceries, beer and wine for the room and make breakfast.
They have TV, WIFI and Wii (for a cost) however there were only 1 or 2 english chanels.
Laundry in the room is abonus and the bathroom complimentaries too.

We did go to the spa for a work out, very nice facilities...we did not swim or use restaurant...but it was too bad the kids were not allowed to use the pool..BUT WE DID READ this before we booked online.

Beds were hard but comfy enough for our short stay.

Make sure to go to CHILLS cafe down the street, it is excellent and staff are fun. Nachos with beef were my sons favourite snack and I enjoyed the 5 € mojitos.

These apartment units were very modern and spacious. The front desk was very helpful. The spa next door was very clean and friendly. It was so nice to have a spacious balcony and be close to the La Sagrada Familia as well as other famous sites. I would highly recommend this facility to anybody. It was great having a supermarket right across the street. We had a three bedroom, two bath unit. My only complaint was that housekeeping did not replace our towels one day of a five night stay. L'Occitane toiletry products were also a nice touch. Be advised, they have limited check-in hours but just make arrangements ahead of time if you are getting in late.

Hi,

Thank you very much for your kind words, we really appreciate that you have enjoyed your stay at Castro Exclusive Residences.
Towels are changed every day if they are in the ground. if they are hung on the towel rack, we understand that the client cares for the environment and prefers to use it another day. Sorry for the misunderstanding.
We hope to see you again in our cozy apartments. This wonderful city is always waiting for you.

Kind Regards

Castro Exclusive Residences & Spa provided excellent service thanks to super-friendly and helpful reception. Also the breakfast (served to the table in next door health club) was excellent!

Location close to metro and Sagrada Famiglia was also very convenient. Apartment was quite small but well equipped, only negative thing was that wi-fi was not properly working. Good value for the money, especially when traveling with bigger kids (4).

While visiting Barcelona on the middle of last May during a family trip, we chose Castro Exclusive Residences. The rooms were spacious, comfortable, modern and very important for us; everything was extremely clean.
We were a party of five, my parents, two siblings and I. We stayed there for a week, and I honestly have to say that we felt just like at home.
We made our booking through their webpage, which worked perfectly and the front desk employees seemed very enthusiastic to help us with everything we needed from arrival to departure. They gave us suggestions for every activity we wanted to do and it’s fair to say that thanks to those girls we almost felt like locals.
Kitchen’s equipment is brand new, as the whole building itself, and it counts with everything you would need to cook your own meal if desired. I personally felt in love with the decoration and technology of the building.
For my family’s first time in Barcelona, the location couldn’t be better to do tourist activities. Very close to Sagrada Familia church and easy transportation to anywhere in the city thanks to its proximity to the metro station system.
The spa next door was fantastic and very convenient for getting a relax time after so much walking around the city.
We are more than sure that we chose the right hotel for our stay in Barcelona and would greatly recommend it to anyone.
