The apartment was close to the center, the quality of the beds was excellent, a sturdy apartment that fitted well with us.After a late arrival and a long day strolling through Barcelona we were happy with the wonderful beds. the coffee roast across the street has the best coffee we have drunk so far.
We had the chance to visit this magnificent city who has so much to offer,history,modern,art,amazing architecture,parks,long beaches,nice tradional food,good public transport ,famous football club and of course an expensive visit overall!
Advantages: The location is very good in a peaceful area but 3 minutes to the metro station and 10 minutes to the beach! Very friendly and helpful staff. Rooms with modern design and great kitchen equipment. If you book many months in advance you will get a very cheap price :) Disadvantages: Bed mattresses are too soft and rather uncomfortable. The WIFI is just terrible, it works maybe for 2-3 minutes and doesn't work for another 10 :/
Outstanding location, close to Metro Line 4 and the beach.Stylish apartment with high ceiling, kitchen is good equipped, beds are okay, bathroom is very nice.Wifi is excellent. I would recommend the place. Great view from the rooftop terrace.
We really enjoyed our stay at Aparthotel República! Good interior design with clever storage solutions. The kitchen houses everything you need for preparing light meals. Good beds although our couch was a bit 'downhill' but the kids didn't complain since the mattress was comfortable. (If you're sensitive to noise then it's not for you.) The staff was service minded and efficient. Especially the Indian guy :) Perfectly situated in from the metro station line 4. 10min walk to the beach, 10min walk to the local pedestrian street and plenty of restaurants. We'll definitely stay here next trip to Barcelona!
Our stay at the La Republica Apartments was a pleasant one. The building has a very modern feel inside and the rooms include Washer, Fridge and Dishwasher. As others have mentioned, there is a minimal staff during certain hours so be sure to coordinate with the hotel accordingly if you are arriving during an off-hours time. The room had plenty of space for my family with small children. There was a pull-out bed with a separate TV that son enjoyed. The beach is a quick 10 minute walk away and far superior to any pool (we only went up to see it briefly), but there is a rooftop pool if you prefer. The subway is literally one block away and can get you anywhere in town easily. The hotel is away from the heart of Barcelona, so you will want to utilize a 2,3,4 or 5 day subway pass. You can reach places like La Rambla in about 20 minutes walk and subway ride. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and found that the more distant location made for a quieter rest at night after the bustle of the main city. Only one odd caveat: we were asked to dispose of our own trash. I understand there is no maid service unless you stay for longer than a week, but it seemed a little odd carrying bottles and a small bag of trash out to the street each morning. No big deal though, the hotel did the job and we enjoyed our time here.
It was nice stay for 2 day. every thing was very good. the internet wasn't so good. the rooms and beds was perfect the kitchen and bathroom was perfect. the take 250 euro Guarantee or deposit but they didn't put this on the web site when I book the apartment.
You don't like the area? Well, it was an industrial estate before and now it has become boutique hotel district with a bit of "not quite my style" flavour. When we arrived we had Alison and later on Marta greet us and they were terrific. A beautiful apartment with everything we wanted. It is an apartment and not a hotel. So you need to provide your own stuff. That's what apartments are! Lidl supermarket is up the road. The metro is a block away. The beach is fifteen minutes walk away. Come on! What does one expect? The local area is full of great little places to eat like Geminis. This was a real gem of a place.
My main disappointment with this hotel was that it was booked on Hotwire, and in the description it was billed as similar to a "name brand" hotel like Hilton - to be clear, this place couldn't be farther from a name brand hotel. It's basically an apartment building converted into a hotel. The rooms are spacious and clean, with full amenities (kitchen, washer/dryer, A/C). The roof top pool was in pretty poor shape, but this place is just 10 minutes walk to the beach (so don't even bother with the pool) and 2 minutes walk to the metro. Front desk staff were very friendly and were able to check us in before the 2pm check-in time. The main warning about this place is that you can't actually get into the building before 10:30am on the day of check-in; this was an issue for us as we arrived there (just off a cruise) at 9:30am with all of our luggage (we ended up having to wait on the street outside for an hour before getting into the place to drop our bags). Front desk explained that we should have received an email about this issue prior to checking in (we did not).
Suitcase waiting room not at all secure. Nice, clean apartment but pricey and no facilities. Pool was a waste of time. Location poor - nearby shops and cafes poor. Would not revisit. Receptionist could have given us so much More info to helpful us along the way...
