Modern apartment with all facilities in great location near Picasso Museum.
Squeaky sliding doors meant some sound pollution from upstairs.
Apartment very well equipped and prepared for guests. Comfortable bed and perfect location
Internet connection intermittent, too cold in a bathroom.
This little place has everything you need, cleverly designed, I would have happily moved in, and loved the bar down the road where they host their reception desk, nespresso and big windows and just lovely,
The mattress. Just change it, it's awful, it's the cheapest money can buy and then to put a slippery plastic protector on it is just disgusting. I love love love this little location but get the bed sorted, worse than student digs, worse than a hotel you might rent by the hour.
Windows in the living room did not closed properly. Towels and bed linen did not look fresh.
Well equipped accommodation in an excellent location. The roof terraces were a delight. There were no issues with noise even though we were there at the weekend.
Great area, very friendly people, loads of cafes, restaurants in the area. Would stay again without question.
The TV had an open uncensored channel!!! Be very careful if children are staying with you. Otherwise very good, small lift but expected in such an old building.
A really lovely apartment in a fantastic location. It suited us perfectly. Within a 3 minute walk to the metro, a 10 minute walk to Las Ramblas, a 3 minute stroll to the park and so on. In a great area with a really good collection of bars, restaurants and shops. We loved it.
The apartment is situated in the old part of the city, where there are a lot of shops, restaurants and cafés. Many attractions are in walking distance from the apartment. The Picasso museum is about 50 m away and the cathedral Santa Maria del Mar is only a few meters away. The apartment has all the necessary facilities and has nice furniture.
Much noise from the street at night. It was difficult to get at whole nights sleep in the bedroom facing the street. So the whole family (5 persons) slept in one bedroom (moved the mattresses in to the other bedroom).
good sized apartment with 2 very spacious rooms. clean and modern design. washing machine available. quite central location. lift available. toilet spacious. nespresso machine provided with some welcome capsules. very near to ciutadella park.
wifi can drop out at times. expensive parking, but option available to park at other secure carparks by BSM for cheaper about 30mins walk away. outside street can be slightly dodgy late at night.
The flat was spacious, well equiped, such as we expected, and everthing functioned well. The rooms were clean and comfortable. A good location, easy to walk to many places and metro was near. The pillows were very good.
The shower stall should be prepared, there was some humidity or blight. The mattresses were quite hard, but however better than too soft. The street was some noisy, but it did not disturb us however very much. (We slept quite well). An emergency exit was missing. No directions, if something unusual, for example a fire, happened.
Loved the location, had every thing we needed to accommodate 2 children and 2 adults. Staff was super helpful. Would stay again!
The high level of specification was very good.
The two things that we didn't like was the television didn't match the high level specification. Also it was disconcerting on arrival we were given the wrong room key and entered a room that was already occupied. The staff member didn't take it seriously. The keys are just thrown in a box and very unorganised.
We have stayed here 3 years in a row. Apartments are a good size. Well located. Little improvements have been added like the coffee pod machine and instructions on how to use the washing machine and where to put out your garbage.
The beds! On the rigid side of firm. The beds alone account for any rating less than good!
Filthy entrance hall. Extremely dark, narrow stairs with rickety banisters and handrail broken in parts with lighting that didn't always come on.Tiny lift for only 2 people which was very wobbly. Light on exiting the lift didn't work so we were in total darkness and horrified when we managed to feel our way to a switch as we were inches away from falling down the stairs. Mould in the shower. We decided we couldn't stay there and asked someone to come and look at it with us to assess if we might have a refund but they wouldn't and we were out of pocket. I would absolutely not recommend you stay there.
Very friendly and helpful staff. Great location.
Apartments a little tired but overall comfort very acceptable
Good location for Born area and easy access to Cathedral and Ramblas areas. Born has some nice places to eat and drink. Apartment is short distance up the road from the hotel where you check in. Very helpful staff. Apartment was well fitted out and clean. Good to have 2 bedrooms rather than sofa bed in the lounge.
Apartment a bit tatty round windows and exterior but fine inside.
Location was completely perfect - staff was 100% helpful with my needs - coffee, breakfast, lobby setting was perfect and very worth 9 euros xxoo
Unfortunately, the bed was not comfortable and I would have liked another towel even though it has a washer/dryer I found it challenging to work correctly for me. I did call the main desk number once in the evening about 10:00 pm and again at 8:00 am and no one picked up my call :( otherwise, no question I will come back here again - just need to let them know, I'm sure they'd either fix or accommodate.
The location was fantastic! The staff at reception were very friendly and helpful and accommodated all requests and questions with a smile. We had the rooftop apartment which had a quirky layout, but it worked.
The apartments needs some tlc. Lift was broken on the day of our stay and required us to carry luggage down 6 flights of stairs
Great staff, kitchen and close to Santa Caterina market.
Street noise at night.
Interesting concept. Very modern and hip. Arty. Great location
The apartment was spacious, clean and in an excellent location. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay again.
Internet - wifi service / speed was not very good.
The location was perfect and the apartment is a more sociable option for three friends - able to relax over a coffee in the morning whilst everyone getting ready to head out.
The street noises were constant through the night but that's an hardly be a complaint given the vibrant location and the 24 hour city.
Staff at hotel very helpful - Anna went out of her way to make us feel welcome. Apt had all amenities and a few extra (like Nepresso coffee.) Close to everything and convenient to shops, restaurants and bars
Great location means noise. The apt is on a main street and the bedroom facing the street had to put up with a lot of noise at night.
Attention to detail - dishwasher tablets, washing powder, salt and sugar all available. Hair dryer and everything you might need in the kitchen. Great location with easy key collection and drop off.
Slight lack of seating in the TV area. Very noisy from the street during the night and early mornings. Apartment looked a little tired especially the shower cubicle, grout etc. The Nespresso coffee machine did not work. Sound travelled between the floors and hallway which woke us up early.
Loved everything! spacious apartment with everything you could need and great location. Downstairs is a great little Tapas place.
