“Very good experience”
Reviewed November 29, 2011

The apartment is very clean and new. The bedrooms are rather small but the leaving room is a good size. The kitchen has everything you may need except of a coffee maker. The apartment is very close to the metro station. A small grocery shop is one block down the street. The best thing was that we couldn't hear any street noise in our bedrooms.
We paid for the internet connection but it wasn't very good. Overall it was a very good experience.

When I seen the price of this I expected something to be wrong but there wasn't! Although we did not have a good view that was a small complaint and also they could have provided an iron. But for location it is perfect..beside a subway line, beside the segreda familla (which you can get tourist bus from) and also if you feel like fast food the is KFC, Burger King, MacDonalds and a pizzeria all within a block. Oh and also for a place known for pickpockets, it's not as bad as people say, just be aware in busy places and you will be fine!

Room Tip: Try and get a good view...our view was out the back which was facing some not so appealing apartment...

Apartaments Marina are located near Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, a minute walk from subway station.

We liked the apartments very much. Clean, spacey and very affordable. The only thing missing was free Wi-Fi access point for hotel guests but I guess you can't have it all ;)

I had a business conference in Barcelona and stayed here for pleasure four days before the conference thanks to tripadvisor. This was a wonderful choice for many reasons:

- Location: 2 blocks from Sagrada Familia, a metro station and the "hop on- hop off" tourist buses. Better yet, we found better shopping and restaurants here in the Eixample district than in the main tourist and shopping drag downtown.

- Size: Don't know actual square footage, but it felt like a 900 sq ft. apartment. Modern, spotlessly clean, and very comfortable.

- Price: well below hotel choices of comparable quality.

- Other Pros: kitchen let us cook our own breakfast which was very useful as Barcelona was not a big breakfast town, and we were battling jet lag from California. Nearby markets were handy with a good enough selection of food and a short walk led to great food shopping. Also, I can highly recommend the nearby restaurant "Los Bellota" for the best quality food. The desk staff were helpful and all spoke english well. Note that the desk was manned 24/7, but it is an apartment, not a hotel, so don't expect a concierge. Nonetheless, the staff gave us great recommendations on where to eat, and the checkout time was good. The balcony had great urban views, and yet it was quiet when everything was closed.

- Cons: The kitchen could have had a few more items - like a cutting board and a larger pan, even a sponge. Wifi was not free, but was fast and relatively cheap, especially when compared to hotels that charge more for slower speeds.

Other notes: they had no iron or ironing board, contrary to what their site said. They do have a coffee maker in every kitchen, but it's the "bialetta" stovetop espresso maker, so if you're not used to that (I have one at home) then you may not realize what it is. Bring some Starbucks Via if that's an issue for you. They do have a little washbasin for cleaning clothes, but no drying line that I saw.

After 4 days here, I checking into the Hotel Princesa Sofia for my conference. What a disappointment after having the space and comfort of a real apartment, and the Marina was more than 50 Euros a night less.

The apartment is very close to the Sagrada Familia,the MRT station is also located right there!We found it very easy to get around Barcelona.
A well stocked supermarket is located just a couple of meters away.Also,a lot of dining options close by which are open till late.
The apartment was very spacious(a living and a dining area,fairly large kitchen,one room with a single bed and the other room with a double bed and a fairly large bathroom).
Highly recommend this place,would definitely stay here again!

We stayed here with 5 people, and it was comfortable. We had a 2 bedroom apartment on the 4th floor, and it was well appointed, clean and comfortable which is all we could ask. I can't comment on cooking facilities as we ate at one of the nearby restaurants each night. We found the apartments well located, not far to the metro station, and as it is close to Sagrada Familia surrounded by a large number of eateries.

Marina appartaments really felt like home.
We had a 2 room flat which was really spacious!
Also it is very clean and the location is almost ideal.
Do not expect though any special design or room service.
If you want to stay in a large flat without paying a fortune then i fully recommend it.
