“Excellent staff, great location, good apartment”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

We have just got back from 4 nights in Barcelona. The apartment we booked was one of the studios but we were really lucky and Augustus upgraded us and gave us a bigger apartment.
The location is really good, it is about 3 or 4 min walk to Drassanes metro (green line) and only a few more minutes to the harbour, 20 mins to the beach, 10 mins to placa catalunya.

El Raval is a really lively place to be based, close to the gothic quarter and easy to get to other parts of the city.

The apartment was really clean and tidy, good bed and shower. The internet connection was really good. If I'm being really picky then it was slightly annoying that there is only a ceiling light in the bedroom, but we just bought a cheap torch from one of the numerous shops selling anything and everything nearby so it wasn't a problem.

The staff were really helpful, friendly and not pushy. They were always around the building as well so it was easy to find them if you needed help or advice.

This was the second time i had stayed in these appartments. Previously, i had been with my daughters "Hen party" in March. The appartments are basic but clean & location is 5 mins off a side street from the middle of the Ramblas which is a bit off putting at 1st as it looks very seedy. The owners are friendly & helpful & can offer advice & arrange taxis etc.Rooms are a bit gloomy & dark ,& there was only 1 mirror in the dimly lit bathroom so i would suggest taking hand mirrors & a torch if wanting 2 apply make up! Generaly, good value 4 money in central Barcelona. Ideal 4 large parties. JL Mature lady from Yorkshire

This apartments place in Raval, near Ramblas (2 minutes), Metro Drassanes (3 minutes), port etc. Every evening we walked to beach, looked to night Barcelona,..
We had room on first floor and we had big room, bedroom, bathroom. It was all equipment that we need: refrigerate, microwave, grill, electric cattle, … We bought foods in Carrefour on Ramblas and small stores around apartments.
Staff was friendly, keep rooms clean.
But there are no windows in our apartment, one time was big noise from nearest night club and Raval is not a clean part of Barcelona – sometimes at morning on streets was garbage.
Summary: mid apartments near center of Barcelona.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for sharing your opinion about your stay at Apartments in Barcelona. We are very happy that you could enjoy Barcelona by day and by night due to the proximity of your accommodation. We are very sorry for the inconveniences caused by noise, but as we know Barcelona’s nightlife is pretty intense, especially in the city centre. That is why sometimes the public cleaning system fails to offer the best service. Raval may not be the cleanest neighbourhood in Barcelona, but it has its charm, with all the mix of cultures that it hosts. What is more, there are many interesting restaurants and bars that are waiting to be discovered… and of course, Palau Guell, only 2 minutes away from our building. Either way, we have quieter apartments in other buildings located 10 minutes away from the noise of Las Ramblas and its surroundings, so please contact us directly next time you come to Barcelona and we will offer you other accommodation options. We are very glad our staff attended your needs; they are always striving to do their best!

Once again, thank you for staying with us!

Kind regards,
Apartments in Barcelona

Super helpful staff at the apartment, helped with what to see and do. Close to La Rambla which is main shopping street and where the metro is. Apartment was big enough, beds were comfortable. Really enjoyed our stay here. Barcelona is awesome!!

Room Tip: We had the room at the top of the lift, great room with lots of room.

Good location, close to La Rambla. Took a taxi from airport and driver brought us straight to the door. i fear we may have walked past it otherwise as the entrance is only a single door. The staff were really friendly and helpful although we were not expecting to pay a €300 deposit. There were ten of us spread over 3 rooms and it cost about £73 each for a two night stay. There were six of us in one room and there was only one small bathroom with toilet and shower between us The beds were very basic but comfortable and all the linen was clean and as many towels as we needed. We used the place only as a base to explore and the location was excellent for that. The kitchen area looked fine although we only used the kettle and toaster. Ideal for a group of friends but probably would choose elsewhere if with my family.

Dear Guest,

First of all let me thank you for taking the time to write a review about your stay at Apartments in Barcelona.

We are very happy that the apartment suited your needs, despite the fact you had to share the bathroom. Unfortunately, we cannot modify the structure of our apartments due to the architectural standards in Catalonia. We will inform our staff about your good feedback for which they will certainly be as grateful as we are.

Hoping to welcome you back again in our apartments, please receive our best wishes!

Sincerely yours,

We had a room on the first floor and was pleasantly suprised. Yes, it is fairly noisey outside, but you are in the heart of Barcelona, so that was expected, just take earplugs and it was fine! Just a couple of minutes from the Ramblas and all the sights, perfectly situated. The staff were fantastic, they couldn't do enough for you, nothing was too much trouble. They kept the rooms clean, and kept linen and towels clean each day, very friendly and accomodating. Any niggles, they sorted out immediately. Lots of local supermarkets close by. The area is a bit tired, but not any worse than many of the side streets around the Rablas. There is a couple of clubs nearby, so there is associated noise, but we found it generally lively in Barcelona anyway! The apartment we were in sleeps up to 6 which could have been a bit of a squeeze, as it is compact, but it suited our needs as we were out all day. Beware ofpickpockets, we witnessed them in action, also, negotiate cab fare from the airport in advance, expect to pay around 26 euros, we were ripped off at 50euros, but fortunately mnot all drivers are like that! Metro is only couple minutes walk away

Room Tip: Try to get one above 1st floor overlooking street, 2nd bedroom at the back, in the room we stayed in...

The studio was poor quality, especially for 115euros a night.
The downstairs studio was not what we expected; a double bed that only one person could get into; no door to the living space; another bed settee that was broken and meant sleeping 3 ft from a very noisy fridge and with neon strip lighting overhead. The bathroom was so narrow it was impossible to sit on the loo properly! The tv didn't work. The towels were old and hard. As for the terrace, it was not as in the pictures, bleak broken furniture with no cushions, no plants, bad view! The only window opened into a lift shaft - no daylight
On the plus side, Marvin was friendly and helpful, the fridge was v cold, the aircon was good, and the shower was hot & powerful. The location is v handy for the Ramblas but there were always youths hanging around the outer door which could be intimidating for many.

Room Tip: don't look at the professional photos and ask for pictures of your room before you book as ours...
