Stayed recently with some friends during a short stay in Barcelona. The accommodation is excellent, very clean and with everything you could need including WiFi and an iPad to look up information you might need. The location is great with a number of good local bars and cafes if you don’t want to go too far. Also there is a range of shops including a small supermarket just one minutes walk away. All the staff we met ( especially Tina) could not have been more friendly and helpful including booking us a taxi and making a restaurant reservation for us, I cannot praise them enough. The bicycle apartments will be our first choice for future stays in Barcelona.

This was not in the heart of Barcelona but it was a quick Metro ride away once staff explained how to use. The Apartment itself was awesome, very clean, well maintained and with a nice bicycle theme. Staff was super helpful and accommodating to get us going on our Spain trip. If you have a car just be prepared to pay for parking.

Just back from a magnificent 10 days at the Bicycle Apartments. It's such a tremendous base for visiting Barcelona, nothing is too far away, and the Sants neighbourhood in which it's located is a great place to spend an evening with plenty of bars & restaurants. The apartment itself was perfect, comfortable and full of modern conveniences. The staff are tremendously helpful and friendly offering daily tips (in the form of a daily newsletter) on places to visit that might have passed you by. We celebrated my 50th birthday here & I can't think of anywhere else I'd rather have been. Gracias to all at the apartments, we shall return.

The apartments at here are great. Very clean and centrally located. They are just a few minutes walk to the bus/subway stops and they offer bicycle rentals at the property to make getting around very easy. The staff at the front desk was very helpful with any questions that we had. The rooftop terrace is very nice in the evenings to sit out and have some drinks with friends and family. Inside the rooms they have everything you need to stay comfortably with a family of 4 and either dine in or dine out while you are exploring the city of Barcelona.

Traveling with a toddler can be difficult, but The Bicycle Apartments made it so much easier! We booked a two bedroom apartment with a huge balcony, and it was perfect for us. Staff had a Nuna travel crib, a high-chair, a rug play mat and a baby hooded towel waiting for us in the room. There was also an abundance of toys we could borrow from the lobby. The full kitchen, washing machine and huge patio were huge pluses. There are also at least three playgrounds within a 5 - 10 min walk from the apartment. Every interaction we had with the staff from holding our luggage after check-out, to booking us a van to the airport, to giving us the lay of the land, to just getting more coffee pods was helpful. The location was perfect, off the main tourist path, a quick 8 min walk to main bus lines and metros, and just around the corner from a grocery store and numerous cafes. We couldn't more highly recommend The Bicycle Apartments!

Excellent spot in a quiet neighbourhood close to metros and sites. All the amenities you need on the apartment and grocery and bakeries min walk from the apartment. The host provided daily weather report and suggestions for things to do that are unique and interesting, markets and festivals going on that day. Very friendly and helpful and the apartment was very spacious and clean. There is a rooftop patio as well as a balcony on your room to sit an enjoy. If I come back to Barcelona I would stay here again. Highly recommend it.

The apartments are in a lovely and quiet part of Barcelona where everything is local including bus stops and train stations. There are lovely bakeries nearby and supermarkets. The service is amazing here and the staff make a conscious effort to engage with you. The WiFi was quick! I got 128mbs down and 31mbs up, with only a few minor interruptions. One of the best things about this apartment was the roof top Terrance, inter to keep this to myself as I don’t want it to get busy when I return, which will be in the not too distant future. Tina you are a diamond and I hope you enjoy your trip to London next week, remember to take the umbrella I got you, London is wet at the moment! 😃

If you prefer an apartment rather than hotel accommodation this place is highly recommended. A few minutes walk to the Metro and 10 minutes to Plaça d'Espanya. Local bakery / coffee shop ideal for quick breakfast; and very close to supermarket and pharmacy. Well appointed accommodation- nice touch with the iPad to communicate with reception or staff in “out of hours” emergency. Quirky bike theme throughout. Staff very helpful with recommendations for eating and entertainment. Again, nice touch with daily what’s on and weather reports pinned outside your door every morning. We’d certainly return to this place when visiting Barcelona again.

A group of 4 of us stayed in the 2 bed one kitchen apartment. We arrived around 12pm, and were able to check in early which was great. The staff on reception were fab on giving us directions & recommendations. The apartment itself was lovely, the only downside we found was that the floor was a little dirty. The beds were extremely comfortable. Towels provided for all of us, which meant we could pack light. Facilities in the apartment were great, ironing board, washing machine, coffee machine, kettle, toaster - couldn't ask for more. As for location, the apartments are in a residential area however the metro is only 5 minutes away which can get you anywhere you want! Supermarkerts close by.

This apartment hotel is an excellent place to stay while in Barcelona - the apartments are clean, comfortable beds, spacious and well equipped, and quiet. We had the 2 bedroom, with kitchen apartment, and it accommodated us very well. The location of the apartment is off the main tourist areas, to go anywhere touristy, one has to catch the metro, which is not too far or catch a cab - we opted for the latter, and it seemed like it would cost us less than Euro 15 to go anywhere touristy. Usually $10-12. Good restaurants are abundant around this hotel, but dont expect the glitzy high end restaurants - this is a residential neighbourhood, filled with solid "home-cooked" food. Great value, great tasting, all within short walking distances. The staff is nice, from the little interaction I had with them as I came in late and left early - they have a very "homey" working hour - something like 10am to 8pm and anything outside of those hours, SOL! - they do provide guests with an IPAD in the apartment for emergency facetime communication (didn't try that). But they were super responsive via email and helpful with logistics of checking in and out remotely, so no problems there. If there is one gripe, and it seems to be getting to be more common these days with apartment hotels- they do not provide adequate shampoo and soap, just enough for perhaps a day or so of shower. At least they do sell them at the office (but one has to get them during the prime hours of 10am-8pm). The alternative is to go to the supermarket nearby and get the necessities, in large bottles. It doesn't cost a lot one way or the other, less than 4 euros each - but it is the inconvenience to travelers of having to go hunt for the necessities that is bothersome. I guess just be forewarned and bring our own.
