Very good apartment -everything worked well-good location-quiet but it suited me and my elderly mother
- Free Wifi
We just returned from a family vacation and stay at the MH Tetuan. This is a great location. Directly across from the Tetuan metro stop. And only a few short blocks from either Passeig de Gracia or the Arc de Triomphe.
The apartment is very large. Three bedrooms, 2 baths, living room, kitchen and pullout sofa in the living room. The last review discussed some of the cons with the apartment. Mostly the level of noise. You can hear everything from one room to the next. In addition, the apartment backs up to a courtyard with a school for young children. Recess time is very loud. We were rarely there during this time and we wore earplugs to bed at night, so problems were solved. Just want to make sure that light sleepers know this before booking.
We had a wonderful stay. Location and price were terrific. We had only four in our group, but could have easily had 10 in this apartment. Enjoy your stay in Barcelona!
We (6 people) stayed for 8 days in the 3-bedroom, 2-bath apartment. There was a small single room, 2 rooms with double beds (on with en-suite bath), and a fold-out couch for sleeping. Also included were washing machine (with powder); full kitchen with fridge, microwave, oven and stove; ironing board and iron, and a small safe. Utensils in the kitchen were sparse but adequate (could have used a corkscrew and a serving bowl of some kind). Dining table with room for 6, 2 easy chairs, television (only CNN and MSNBC in English), CD/radio were also included. Patio had a small table with 2 chairs.
Everything was relatively clean, although the en-suite could use a coat of paint. All tile floors, no rugs or carpet. Neighborhood is nice, good pastry shop across the road, small markets for the necessary things. Walking distance to just about everything, we only used the metro to go to and from the airport!
One complaint is the lack of sleep due to the thin walls, where you constantly hear scraping furniture and toilets flushing. We had a group of 16 (!) young people staying directly above us (this was New Year's time) and the noise was incredible. With no management onsite, there is no one to take care of such situations. The cigarette butts and ashes were raining down on our patio the entire time, as well as spilled beer and who knows what else, rendering our patio useless. I question the wisdom of renting an apartment to such a large group, and then placing them directly above a family group. I like to party as much as anyone but the noise they made was beyond belief, with no let-up for 2 days. Maybe you'll be luckier with the neighbors....
So, 6 out of 8 days were great. On arrival I recommend taking the Aerobus (A1 if you land at Terminal 1 - follow the signs to the buses downstairs), and buy a return ticket (it's cheaper, and is good for 9 days). Get off the bus at Universitat and catch the Metro (L2) for 2 stops to Tetuan. The Metro exit is directly outside the door to the apartment. One caveat: on returning to the airport, you must go to Placa de Catalunya as the bus does not stop at Universitat on the return trip!
Barcelona is great, and this apartment is a good base camp.
Apartment is excellent for families. It felt like at home. It has all the amenities like air con and a well equipped kitchen with washer/dryer. Perfect location away from the tourist areas. It is in front of the metro and within walking distance to La Rambla, attractions and beach. Just remember to bring toiletry. Otherwise, I highly recommend this flat to anyone.
I stayed in the top floor (3 double bedroom and sofa bed) apartment with Colleagues. The apartment was spacious and clean with 2 bathrooms, free wifi and good aircon. The kitchen is well equipped, although we did not use it for anything other than breakfast.
The apartment is on Plaza Tetuan, which is very convenient for most of the attractions and the Metro. It has its own terrace which overlooks the plaza.
We stayed at two of MH Apartments properties whilst we were here, due to the volcano distruption. We were moved here as the only option they had, I had actually seen this one when I originally booked Liceu but thought it was a little out of the way. Having been right in the thick of the Rambla and then sampled this, I would suggest this as a safer place to stay. Its right on the tube stop and within walking distance of Sangrada Familia. There are a collection of 5 star hotels and top restaurants in the area so it has to be a nice area.
