    The payment process is tricky -- after I paid through Booking.com, I received an email asking for a scan of my credit card (with all numbers hidden but the last four) and my personal ID to validate the payment, which I didn't particularly like.

    The location is very good, right in the centre of Castelldefels and very close to the train station (<5min), where there are trains to Barcelona often. There are restaurants and supermarkets nearby. The rooms were big and comfortable.

    A bit used. Beds could be better or benefit from e.g. a 5-10cm Ikea top mattress upgrade. You have to be gentle with the electric sockets.

    It is very Central, close to trains, shopping, groceries. The neighborhood is busy in the day and relatively quet in evening and night. Still, you should bring earplugs as it is in big city! Its a 1 room appartment with small kitchen, small diningtable. Very nice seperate bathroom. Parking basement is available for €10 extra. The staff/receptionist was very friendly and competent.

    A clean apartment in a great location, let down by housekeeping and the noise from the road outside

    We were told on arrival that towels were changed on the third day, however they were not changed and we had to ask for the towels to be changed on the fourth day. We were also told on arrival that bedding was normally changed on the fifth day, but as we were there for seven they would change it on the fourth day. I am disappointed to say that our bedding was not changed at all during our stay! We found it difficult to get hold of management to ask for our bedding to be changed. We requested a quiet room, however the apartment was above a very busy road and we had to wear ear plugs to enable us to sleep through the noise.

    The aircon worked and was welcome. The property was well situated close to the town centre and all amenities. The apartment was very clean on our arrival and they let us check in early as the room was ready. It was good to have the kitchen facility, which again was very clean.

    There was hot water only between the hours of 8 am- 10 am and sometimes after 7 pm. The kitchen sink was so small that a large dinner plate could not fit inside laying flat. I asked for additional towels and was told I could only have two. The woman at the desk was nice but it was very difficult to communicate due to the language difference. I had to go outside the building and ring the bell in order to speak with her since the desk is unmanned most of the time. If my phone had worked, I would need to call a number to contact someone in charge. At times, the key to get into the building and into the apartment failed to work after the first try. The light in the hallway leading to the elevator worked only after stepping into the hallway about 20 feet from my door which was at the end of the hall. I could not check in until 3 pm after an overnight flight from the U.S. I was not told about the lack of hot water upon arrival and took my first shower with cold water.

    Bed was comfortable and the patio was spacious.

Rooms were comfortable with very small equipped kitchen for 3 people in each room, sufficient for our needs. The light bulb in the bathroom was burning out when we entered and was flashing like a disco. We talked to the receptionist and they came and changed the bulb.
