Very nice Barcelona hotel

We were quite pleased. Very large room, especially for a European hotel. Everything was very clean, the staff was quite friendly and helpful. Wi-fi worked perfectly in the room. The shower water pressure was great, lots of hot water. There is a nearby Metro stop, Marina, within a 5-10 minute walk. We walked to the beach in about 15-20 minutes. Several market/bodegas nearby. We will definitely stay here again if we get back to Barcelona.

Scary Experience

To start off I want to say that staying at Apsis marina was the worst experience of my life in a hotel. I am a frequent traveler and I read reviews before traveling. First When I arrived at the hotel I was greeted by a Spanish man that was rude and unprofessional. I traveled with my friends and when it was time to check in he asked all of us for our passports. It was my first time in Spain and we were used to one person checking in so we asked why he needed all of our passports. His response was If you don’t show me your passport I will call the police. It was such a shocker for us to be confronted with such a service. The worst customer service and people in this hotel make you feel so uncomfortable. I will never stay here again. Let me not forget to mention that I called the hotel in advance since we needed an extra bed. The person advised me that two beds were included with my reservation an additional sofa bed. When I arrived at the hotel they charged me extra for the sofa bed.

Good base

We used this hotel as a base to explore the city and we weren't disappointed. Some of the sights are walkable or the metro is a 5 minute walk away. The room was huge and clean. Overall a good experience.

Breakfast was charged at 12 Euro a person

we were told if we pay 40 euro more per night to upgrade our already paid for reservation we will also get breakfast included. At checkout they charged us for 5 breakfasts at 12 Euro each. And they would not budge.

Disapointing Location and service

We had a disappointing experience at this hotel. The location is less than ideal as it is surrounded by a funerarium and some punk heavymetal nightclub. During the day you'll hear construction work & at night lots of grungy teenagers yelling at the top of their lungs. We booked 2 separate rooms for a party of 3. Upon checkout we were charged an extra supplement per night for the third person. When we complained about it the front office employee refused to wave the fee, claiming that's the spanish way... The front office staff does not follow up on request for restaurant reservations etc...

Niezbyt daleko od hotelu mozna zjesc w barkach lub kupic sobie cos z owocow,pobliska aleja Marina jest zaopatrzona bardzo dobrze i niedrogo.A jesli chcecie zjesc tradycyjnie radzimy malownicze restauracyjki w Pocie olimpijskim,szczegolnie "Barca" ;-)))

Muy nuevo, con habitaciones grandes,

Muy nuevo, con habitaciones grandes, con salón y cocina (sin utensilios). El dispensador de gel de baño no funcionaba, pero por lo demás, todo correcto. Ubicado en un zona en desarrollo cerca del tanatorio, del auditorio y el TNC.
