This international business traveler would give Urban Suites 100 stars! I come to Barcelona every year. Sometimes, a few times a year. I've stayed in many of this city's hotels. From the expensive, finest brands to budget properties. Without doubt, Urban Suites is my very favorite. Let's start with the location. It's a four minute (300m) walk from the Barcelona Sants train station. Easy, even with luggage. In the opposite direction, a six minute (500m) walk to Plaça d'Espanya station (the interchange for subways and trains). It doesn't get any better than that! Those are Google's stats. The accommodations are more apartment than suite. You have a full kitchen with all contemporary appliances (oven, stove, dishwasher, refrigerator and sink). A very spacious living room, featuring a sizable sofa bed, dining table, flat screen cable TV (mostly Spanish language), DVD and floor-to-ceiling windows galore. The bed is separated with sliding doors. You will not knock your knees getting around this bed! I have a king size bed at home and this is equivalent in size. Plentiful storage, closets and shelves. The bathroom is double entry, with a spacious walk-in shower. Daily housekeeping and she does a wonderful job. The rooms are very bright. Unlike many European accommodations, you won't feel like you're in a dungeon. The neighbourhood is safe and quiet. I barely heard anything after 10:30 PM except the occasional moped. Every taxi driver had no problem finding the place and if you need a taxi, just use the MyTaxi app (it's great for hailing cabs and for paying). But mostly, I just walk. Wi-Fi is included and works as well as any in Barcelona. There's drink and soda machines by the front security door. There's plenty of local markets and restaurants nearby (you can't walk a block in Barcelona without finding good food). No on-site breakfast. Get over it (Just walk down to Buenos Migas or Audrey's near Espanya station). After a long business day, I'm more likely to eat in my Urban Suites "apartment" then go out to a restaurant. I can't say that about any other property I've stay at in Barcelona. The owner, Isabelle and her staff are exceptional. They're on-site from 0900 to 2100, and available by email after-hours (I tested them I received an immediate response). There you have it. Make your visit to Barcelona a pleasant one.

Conveniently situated, The Urban Suites was ideal for my short business trip to Barcelona. The receptionist was very friendly and helpful too, pointing me to a super tapas bar and restaurant just 100m away. Called Zaravtz, the bar had a northern Spanish style, with food and wines to suit all tastes.

Rooms are very confortable. The location is an extra point. Near the train station and the Plaza España and 2 blocks from the subway. The rooms are beauty and the kitchen is great. You have all the elements to cook very easy. People at the reception are kind.

Problem with WIFI connection. Room is fully kitchen equipped. Near to all attractions and metro station. Helpful and friendly staff. Room rates is higher than in New York. Free laundry service with dry machine.

It's a great hotel for family and close to everything. The staff is very knowledgeable for their surroundings. We checked in after 10 pm which they force you to pay a late check in fee min of 35 euro.

Week commencing 17/07/17 my wife, our son (he uses a wheelchair) and myself stayed at Urban Suites in Barcelona in Rm 211 a 1 bed x suite apartment. We requested for an early check-in and Isabel was just superb in having our suite ready before the stipulated check-in time.We found her very friendly and helpful as she took a lot of time to explain a few things about the general area and also took time to suggest places that were wheelchair friendly that we could visit and how we could access them.Well done Isabel.The suite Lounge and Bedroom are separated by a retractable divider. The suite was generally clean and fully equipped.The Wi-Fi is good and the air-con is very reliable and it works!! The general location of The Urban Suites is great because it is close to many essential amenities. I definitely recommend The Urban Suites to anyone who is visiting Barcelona especially wheelchair users.I would have given Urban Suites a rating of 5 if not for the bathroom taps,sink and floors that need a bit of scrubbing.

Great location, close to the train station and short walking distance to the centre. Rooms are spacious and clean. Would definitely recommend this place! Front desk is helpful and offer many suggestions for first timers in Barcelona..

I stayed for 3 days in June and overall it was a pleasant experience.Check in is limited to certain times of day so check in can be easy or somewhat complicated if no one is there.Suite was large modern and quiet.The one exception is at night if you end up close to the entrance door you will hear a large thud when people come and go.If it is a weekend you should ask for a room away from the door as people are coming and going all through the night.Nice full kitchen with many popular Barcelona attractions 5-10 mins walk away.Barcelona Sants train station is less than 5 mins away.

We stayed at Urban Suites in Barcelona in a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom apt. with an large outdoor terrace for a week. The apt. was clean, modern, and fully equipped. Urban Suites is in a great location - close to many stores, shops, and restaurants, and 2 blocks to one of the main subway lines. The staff was super helpful and friendly. I recommend Urban Suites to anyone who is visiting Barcelona who wants to have a local neighborhood experience, yet a quick subway ride to all the sites in the city.

I had a single room apartment during MWC this year and this turned out to be great value for money. Typical hotels near the Fira were charging crazy rates for room. The apartment had everything I needed and was particularly clean. Kitchen was very good although I ate out every night. Bed was comfortable, shower perfect, so all in all a great stay. Backyard view wasn't up to much but then you can't have everything.
