This was a great space for four friends spending a weekend in Barcelona! The two-bedroom apartment had two bathrooms, which was awesome, and a full kitchen so we were able to cook a few meals and have some drinks in the room before heading out. Super comfortable, great location 1 block from Las Ramblas, and the staff was great!
The water in the apartment went off the last night at about midnight and came back on at about 8am - this was quite frustrating for those of us who had early international flights and needed to shower!! I'm not sure if this is a common occurrence or if this was a fluke issue but please be aware. Also, if you're looking to meet a lot of people, socialize and get toursity information, stay in a hostel. This is place to stay for people who know their way around a bit more and are content to socialize within their own group.
The location was great, right in the city centre with small distances to the metro stations. Very nice apartment!
Its Location , the apartment is Clean
There is no reception, you must call them before you go. Also there is no taxi can go there so you have to walk to the hotel . the sofa were broken and the irony is not working , no wifi, also you have to manage your pillow and blanket sheets , the elevator is 30 cm by 80 cm so you have to go 3 rounds to load your luggage.
Modern interiors of appartment
Loud noise multiple nights of people singing at square nearby until the early hours
We were put in a different aparment to the one we booked on Booked.net . We had choose an apartment just off La Rambla, and were put in la Murella apartment down near the beach.
Our toaster was broken, there were extrenely dirty duvet and pillows in a cupboard in the bedroom. The bed covers were very dated. The shower soap holders were both very rusty. One of the showers was all dirty and mouldy round bottom. The toilets push button in both rooms were very loose. The sink tap was very loose. One of the toilets didnt flush.
Location was very good, in the middle of La Ramblas, and there were a lot of shops just around the building, a small market 10 meters away and "Karfour" hyper market about 100 meters, apartment was fully equipped and very roomy and elegantly designed.
The elevator is extremely small, but I guess that's the case in all of Barcelona, plus the internet worked for the first day, it was slow and kept disconnecting, then for the next 3 days it didn't work at all.
Inside was perfect and good quiet location. Very clean and comfortable. would stay again
outside a bit of putting to begin with but not really a problem. Better signage would be useful.
It was a stone's throw from Las Ramblas.
You are directly in centre of Barcelona. Good location.
The apartment has an excellent location in the heart of the city. You are close to the shopping area as well as the old historical part of the city with narrow streets and old buildings. You also have the lively Las Ramblas just next to you. Whe you are inside the apartment its hard to understand that you are in a big city as it is all quiet inside which is good if you need a rest from the city life. Everybody in the family was happy with the modern apartment.
The kitchen was not fully equipped for a family for doing all the cooking at home and eat all meals in the apartement. We didn´t complain about it but the following was missing - a fork, a sharp knife, a small saucepan, a slice (spatula).
Apartment was very clean except for dishwasher. Very modern with nice clean bathroom. Apartment was light and airy. Great to be able to cook breakfast in your own apartment. Very central, close to the Ramblas , markets, Cathedral and Plaza Cataluna. A little noisy, but fine once windows closed and air conditioning on.
Apartment was clean except dishwasher which had fish bones in it from last tenant, so kitchen smelt a bit fishy. Some dishes and frypans were a bit dirty. Once we bought dishwasher powder and cleaned dishes, kitchen didn't smell. One suggestion is to supply some dishwashing powder so tenants clean dishes properly. Sofa looked nice but not very comfortable to sleep on. Internet didn't work.
The location was brilliant. Just a 1 min walk to La Ramblas. The outside space on our balcony was also brilliant, the space was very relaxing to sit outside at night and enjoy the nice view of Mount Juic.
The water in the shower cubicle did not go down the plug too well, it was very slow to go down and would over-flow, so your time was limited in the shower, or you could start and stop the shower whilst in it. Also it is a pull-out sofa bed, there is not a proper bed, the mattress is very uncomfortable and very thin,
We have stayed at these apartments for the last 4 years - we have never been disappointed yet , hence our return!! The apartments are in an ideal location & are always clean & have friendly helpful staff. We are already planning our next years trip !
There is never a kettle - which is bizarre as there's a coffee machine, toaster , microwave !!!
Location was amazing, you can live there as a part of the city life. You are in the center of everything you can dream about,while you visiting new places: center of the city (almost on the Rambla )- you can walk every where , bike-with a lot of rental options, you have a very nice coffee shop just around the building door , the apartment itself is very cosey
replace the sofa - need to change the liner, you need to "Sharp" the directions to the apartment
Interesting studio appartment, very small, but convenient. Detailed instuctions for all the electronics available. Location in the very heart of Old Town + close to Airbus stop on placa Catalunya. Would be very convenient for a couple having romantic journey. Appartment has a nice terrace with a view on the roofs of Latin Quarter.
No telephone inside the appartment - no possibility to call the customer service. Customer service (Sara Fritzon) did not answer one of my e-mails. Check in at 15.00 - a little late, around 12.00 woud be more convenient.
