The location was fantastic, one block away from City Hall in the heart of the old city. Excellent subway and bus services it was really easy to get to any place in a short period of time with no hassle. The apartment was spacious, with modest but modern furniture. The kitchen was amazing; it was fully equipped and there was a dishwasher and a washing machine as well. Loved the place, and if I return to Barcelona would only go to B&W Princessa.
I was quite surprised to find out that cleaning was only done twice during our 12 day stay and that we had to take out our own trash and dispose of it in a public trash can. That was the only surprise.
The apartment location, the apartment layout, the balcony you could sit out on
The noise during the night at the weekend , the slight pong from the drains in the apartment
good location not far out of town centre , well decked out , rep was very professional.air con was great fantastic city to go round
to be fair they have got it sussed over there ,late at night when everyone has gone home they clean the city however this does mean it can be a bit noisy , but hey you cant have it always ,not a complaint just an observation
Great location and spacious, comfortable apartment. Very comfortable bed. Loved all the shuttered balconies that we could sit on and watch the hustle and bustle of street life. Mark was very helpful when we arrived and directed us to a great tapas bar round the corner
main issue was the washing machine which didn't seem to drain or spin - consequently ended up with loads of soggy washing! When we rang the contact number our calls weren't returned
The location was excellent. Double glazed windows filtered most of the late night noise. Double bed was very comfortable and living area more than adequate for 2 people. There were 3 small balconies, 2 overlooking Princesa St and it was nice to be able to sit and watch the passing parade. Would stay there again.
This is more of a warning to others as we noticed a comment by another traveller about a cracked glass panel on the entry to the bathroom. On our arrival we both commented how easy it would be to walk into this glass panel as there is no warning strip on it, in fact it actually serves no purpose.One of us did walk into it and although no damage was done to person or glass the danger could be easily removed with some strips across the glass.
Moder, spacy, good location, metro in front of the house. Nice area.
Can be very noisy in the night time because of the nearby party area and the street is very echoing... Had a bit problems receiving the key after 21.00
Great location, plenty of room and good facilities
We paid for Hotel transfers from & to the airport, but the return did not turn up and we had to catch a cab. The Hotel has not refunded the 55 Euro for the transfer. We suggest cabs are used for transfer.
We liked the location and access to all the shops and restaurants. Within walking distance of numerous eateries, shops and several attractions.
WiFi was not good at all. Could only get and stay connected if I stood by the front door. Signal strength seemed to be the big issue. We had 3 iPhones and 2 iPads and all had the same issues. There were only 4 bath towels and 4 hand towels. We had 5 adults (one on the couch) but no way to request more towels.
No hot water. Repeatedly called the staff number- no response to help rectify the situation. Would not recommend this accommodation.
The apartment was in a great location, was very modern and clean and had all the facilities I needed. The staff provided excellent service and were very helpful when I checked in.
We've walked around a lot in Barcelona these last days, and we've come to realize that the location is absolutt excellent. It's not too touristy, a lot of cute litte shops and tons of good restaurants in the neighbourhood. The apartment was big and very modern. It was no problem to leave our luggage in the apartment when we arrived a couple of hours before check in. Everything went smooth when it came to communication with the staff and our payment.
We originally thought we booked an apartment with a balcony, and it was a small dissapointment when we got one without a balcony. We didn't bother to ask or complain about it, but it might be smart to write it down as a special request when booking the apartment.
Visited Barcelona with my best friend for her 21st bday, stayed for 6 nights at BHW, highly recommend this apartment and will be staying here again in the future for sure! - Location was excellent! and being two young girls travelling alone we felt very safe in the area. - Cool, stylish and contemporary room, very classy feel with a Traditional Barcelona street view from the balcony, just gorgeous! - No noise problems - Comfortable bed - Very spacious room for two!
- Room didn't look like it had been cleaned very well, but didn't really bother us. - A few broken doors and doorknobs but we managed. - Wifi was preeetty hopeless and inconsistent. - Hard to get in contact with staff if there was something we needed I.e toilet paper, extra towels (which turned out to be an extra 15 euros!)
Facilities and location.
Location Good size of flats Helpful staff Overall - very happy to recommend to others who would like a central location.
Nowhere to put rubbish (was told there were bins outside but not suitable for general rubbish bags). The second bedroom had no curtains, luckily we didn't need to use it but can imagine this could be an issue.
Great location in the old town. Clean and comfortable. Modern bathroom.
Did not have a balcony so they gave us a 2-bedroom instead of a 1-bedroom. Apartment did not look as good as in the photos - crack in walls, paint peeling, living room chairs not as nice.
Perfect location near the barri gothic and metro, friendly staff, easy to check out (just leave the keys inside). The apartment is fully equipped - kitchen with oven, dishwasher, big fridge, coffee maker, also iron, air conditioner and hair dryer.
Noisy street and bad soundproof - you hear all the conversations in the street and in nearest balconies. Awful bathroom with just cold and cool water, no hot water at all. And weak water stream - it is almost impossible to take a shower. Many insects in the apartment, some of them bite, it's very unpleasant. No curtains except one bedroom, everybody in nearest buildings can see everything what you do. You must clean the apartment, there is no cleaning during the stay.
Had a kitchen and washer
Location was sketchy, graffiti everywhere, elevator didn't work, wifi was terrible.
area is perfect, good size, good air condition
is looking more and more used, bathroom is floating, most lights did not work
The appartment was quite dark down in the bedroom and it made it difficult to get ready in the evening.
Very well equiped apartment at a great location in the city center. It looked like it was just renovated, and a lot of things were provided like a hair dryer, citrus juicer, big assortment of crockery, dish washer, wifi, airco, washing machine and dryer. Sebastian was very kind and easy to get in touch with for any question.
I thought there would be a balcony, which was not the case. The sofa bed in the living room wasn't very comfortable but the separate mattress which was also in the living room was comfortable.
Location and roomy apartment. Washing machine was great to have
a bit of noise at night from the street
it is in good location clean and comfort.
the awner gives you 2 keys and ask you to sign that if you loose a key you have to pay something like 195 euro! that was strange but when you come to the place you do not have much choice but to sign.
Location is great and apartment style is quite nice. The kitchen is fully equipped that makes cooking delicious food from la boqueria even more fun.
It gets really noisy during g the nights, the windows don't help much. Carrying bags to the second floor on a time staircase is not pleasurable either.
Central location, design, decoration, ample space, fully equipped, clean, helpful staff, elevator
Some shortcomings such handsoap dispenser filled in half, just one roll of toilet paper, water not draining from the shower cabin, no hairdyer although mentioned in amenities, poor Wi-Fi connection in the bedroom
Great location and friendly staff. Facility was modern. All ammenities working and spacious layout
Windows not very sound proof and was bit noisy on weekend. Didn't have blow dryer but wasn't big deal as staff brought one immediately. Bit stange that elevator started on second floor. Wifi was weak in bedrooms.
