Some people will love it, but you need to punch in a code to get into the building and another one to get into the apartments, except that people let others into the first and the second is often left open. Using your tv is also an adventure. There is a way to get your Netflix account onto their tv, but it took so many steps, we did it only the one time the nice person at the desk did it for us. Here's another thing that is inconvenient because it is intended to be so convenient: The windows in the master bedrooms do not have curtains that block out light. Perhaps it should have been obvious that the hard security-type window cover comes down instead of a curtain, but I didn't expect it would be operated by what looks like a light switch on the wall. The one low-tech thing they have is the elevator. It is very slow. Staff were nice, but full cleaning is prohibitively expensive.

Loved it! Big, affordable and amazing location. Would go back anytime. If you like skateboarding, there is a massive area next to the MACBA (museum) where lots of pros are skating. Great entertainment to watch them as well.

Clean, spacious and can’t beat location. The staff are amazing! Any problems or questions we had they were easy to contact and very efficient. It made our stay that more enjoyable. Would recommend to couples and small families.

Exceptional pre-check in and arrival experience. Attentive, friendly, professional staff. Great location and proximity to public transport. A supermarket downstairs and close proximity to restaurants. Reasonable accessibility to tourist attractions. The apartment was very clean and well appointed. Hairdryer (not a norm in other apartments), plenty well sized towels, decent shower, sufficient crockery and cutlery, new appliances, great sleeping arrangements- well suited for a family. Check in is at same address- also not always the norm. Overall a 100% repeatable experience.

This hotel was an awesome stay for three of us for nine day vaca. We had a one bedroom with twin beds and the sleeper sofa that pulled out another twin bed - with a real mattress. Great location, near coffee shops, Plaça de Catalunya a block away, short walk to La Rambla. Quiet location, plenty of room for the three of us. Cleaning was not to our standards.. we paid $5 EUROs daily for light cleaning, which turned out to be garbage removal and fresh towels only. The full cleaning service included sheet change. We had to tell cleaning lady to take out bag the recyclables, which she did once in our presence. Floors were never touched while we were there - somebody hand me a Swifter! We felt safe and right next door was a small convenience store for water and other essentials. Starbucks close by! I'd stay there again.

Excellent location and exceptional condition. A group of four of us stayed here in a one bedroom apartment with a sofa bed, and we were very pleased. Clean, well equipped, fantastic staff, great location. We also contacted staff to see if we could have a number to contact a taxi as we were leaving 4am to catch our flight, the beautiful girls at front desk helped us organise a personal driver who arrived 4am on the dot the next day to pick us up. They were so helpful! Location isn’t far from the main strip in Barcelona and we were surrounded by yummy food so not complaining! The building also has great security, you require a password to enter, then a code to access your floor and then to the apartment itself. It’s excellent. If you’re a group or a couple then definitely look into staying here, you’ll be impressed.

Very clean apartment, amazingly friendly staff. The apartment has everything that you might need, including washing machine, fully equipped kitchen and etc. The apartments are 2 minutes away from Catalunya Plaza with plenty of convenience shops and even taxi station right across the street. Highly recommended!

We stayed here for four nights prior to a Disney cruise. We wanted a place that was a bit more spacious than a tiny hotel room since we have a 17 year old daughter traveling with us. This apartment was ideal for this purpose. We loved having a fridge and microwave for saving dinner leftovers and for keeping cold drinks on hand. The decor and furniture all feel very new and functional. You use a security code to get in the building, into the hall of suites, and into the room, so we felt very safe, even if the conserge was not around. This spot doesn't have the 24 hour front desk service, so if you are new to travel, or to Spain, or don't speak much Spanish, this might be a drawback for some if you don't have a game plan or need help with basics. However, if you are proficient at travel, and are good to go, no problem! I would definitely come back here! The location was ideal... two blocks from main plaza with metro and bus stops. We walked everywhere! ps. Starbucks across the street open at 6:3o, good classic Spanish food at Nuria just to the right down La Rambla from the plaza.

The apartment looks clean, bright and spacious from the photos in the booking site and we had high hope for the kitchen. However our assigned room looks a bit difference, the kitchenware was dirty, no electric kettle but just a kettle with inside extremely dirty, glad I checked before use. The room is dim and the TV is too small, we have to sit very close so as to watch FIFA match clearly. Talking about the daily cleansing fee (5 Euros daily) for garbage removal and change of towels, cleansing was not done for the first day and we checked office the next day and found the logbook marked 'DONE', argued for a while and the staff checked again the cleaning lady then she admitted she forgot, and we got 1 day fee refunded. But really no in room floor cleaning, if there is vaccum cleaner in room at least we can do it ourselves. The good thing I would say is the apartment location is convenience, very close to La Ramblas, near metro station and Taxi stand just on the opposite road. However, our family would prefer to stay in Hotel next time then.

BEWARE 40 Euro fee on arrival for cleaning fee for when you leave (we stayed 4 nights and never had towels changed once) also be aware 2.50 per person per night tourist tax. Location was perfect, bang in the centre of everything la ramblas only a few streets away, le Sants train station half an hour walk away we caught train from heat to spend the day in salou 17.60 euros open return , the main bus station where we had to catch the coach from to the race track again half an hour walk but the opposite direction. We stayed on the 3rd floor and asking as windows were kept closed the noise from traffic outside was ok but if you opened a window it was very noisy, the good thing was air conditioning was one of the best I’ve ever had (like a fridge). Only 1 bedroom for 4 males, 2 single beds in one bedroom then a sofa bed in the dining room/kitchen which sofa was a bed then a bed slid out from underneath which was also a bed. Once bed was pulled out room seemed cramped. I did not like the bed situation at all. Room had a free safe box, dishwasher, iron, ironing board, hair dryer in bathroom but there wasn’t a kettle so we had to boil water for our coffee/tea in a pan. No brush and pan or mop to clean the floor with so we’re having to pick little bits up off the floor up with hands to keep place looking tidy. I would only stay here again if all guests had a proper bed to sleep in.
