Great location for train station and metro unit Barcelona centre. Very friendly and helpful reception staff. Clean and comfortable room with everything you could need for a stay either short or long. Quiet location, would recommend.

We had 3 nights here at the start of our holiday. We didn't arrive until 9pm and the receptionist was very helpful. She explained all about the apartments and gave us directions to the closest supermarket, a great restaurant and the train stations. You can walk to Tarragona, Sants and Espana. We had 2 apartments which were well appointed and...

Pretty decent let alone prices and an idiotic argentine guy at the reception but I guess you won't escape either of both in Barcelona.. Location is perfectly OK and in a concept of appart hotel it is a good choice, not luxury and not a garbage can either (I saw some in Barcelona, particularly the private flats in AirBnB). Otherly...

We booked a two rooms apartment, reached the location. It was at the backlane and we spent 10-15 mins waiting for the reception, ringing the phone and bell. Spent another 20 mins arguing on the clause on clean up and reading a long list of clauses. Inside the apartment, the bed is not as comfy and the safe is movable...

Dear Kar In reference to your comment I would like to make some points that are not as you describe them.

Clean, spacious apartment, 2 bedrooms accommodate 4 people easily, 6 with pullout sofa. Have to pay extra for room cleaning during stay. Chose it primary because it was 5 min walk from the New Years celebration near Place Espanya. Easy metro ride anywhere in the central city. Not centrally located to all the tourist spots, but easily reached by Metro...

Excellent apartment (my son tells us we must mention how comfy the sofa was!) with great staff (friendly & helpful - cheer Leo!) just a couple of minutes from the Tarragona metro line. Ideal for exploring Barcelona.

It's a nice hotel close to FIRA, the room is spacious, but it's not the cleanest room. We also had problem with our shower handle which was basically unusable. It was hanging loose and we have to hold it with our hands to take shower.

The location is perfect! Espanja square is in 5 minutes. There are 3 metro stations nearby. It is quite convenient to get to/from the airport using AirBus. Hotel staff are very careful and helpful! They tried to help us with any questions and gave some good advice. The price/quality rate is very good.

The location was good; the apartment and rooms are O.K., the cleaning is poor; the pillows are awful, the sheets and towels are grey and old; Please, remove the WC brush, or at least clean it properly. The smell inside could be improved.
