Positive Reviews

Close to attractions and amenities.

The apartments are close to lots of shops, supermarkets and restaurants which many of the guests found very convenient. Many tourist attractions including the popular shopping street La Rambla and Gaudi’s Casa Batlo are within walking distance which saved guests the trouble of having to use public transport.

Good level of cleanliness.

The guest rooms as well as the communal bathrooms and dining room were described as clean and well-presented. Guests were pleased with the overall hygiene levels and also appreciated that their towels and bedding were changed on a regular basis.

Friendly staff, willing to help.

The reception staff were described as friendly and professional by the majority of the guests who stayed here. They offered help and advice to the guests about the local area as well as explaining about the local buses and trains. Guests said that the staff were approachable and they made them feel welcome.

Negative Reviews

Traffic noise.

Some guests were not able to sleep at night due to the traffic noise from the street below. The problem was made worse during the warmer months when guests wanted to open their windows in order to cool down.

Poor soundproofing.

The walls in the apartments were said to be very thin as many were disturbed by noise from the adjoining rooms. Guests who stayed in the apartment closest to the reception area also complained about being able to hear other occupants as well as the reception staff.

Basic and dated decor.

Although the apartments were said to be clean, quite a few guests described the decor as tired and said that the rooms would benefit from modernisations. The furniture and upholstery were described as old fashioned and the bathrooms were also said to be dated with very basic fixtures.
