Great Location! Clean and mostly as advertised

  • 4 of 5

Overall, our stay at this apartment was a great experience.The initial experience we had with the owner/property manager was not pleasant at all however, as somehow they had gotten our timings for our flight incorrect, and therefore AS SOON as we landed, we received a call from them yelling at us for not being at the apartment to have met them, when they were there almost 2 hours before we even had landed. So of course we were not picking up our phones or there to meet with them, as we were still on our flight. This was very unpleasant to deal with and be stressed out by, after a very long flight from the US and being very exhausted. Luckily, the apartment and stay itself once we arrived made up for the rude beginning. This seems to be a common theme however, based on previous reviews, and one that should probably be addressed for a more pleasant arrival experience.

As for the apartment itself: It was VERY close to a metro stop, and a bus station and therefore made it easy to get around, even at night time. So definitely a great location. The surrounding area, is a bit dim and sketchy in the evenings though, so not sure how it would be for females traveling alone however. The apartment is very clean, and as advertised mostly. I believe they fixed some of the previous issues noted, as there was air conditioning while we stayed, as well as all bathroom toiletries needed (hair dryer, toilet paper, towels, etc). We didn't use the kitchen much, other than the fridge and dishware.

The only other issue we had, was one with the keys given to us, it seems to be a bit off, and so every time we tried to open the door, it involved a lot of jiggling around to get the key to sit in the lock properly to open. This was very annoying as sometimes we would be very tired or coming home late after a day in the city and weren't sure if the key would actually open. Once or twice, we had to actually wait for someone to exit the building in order for us to be let in.

This being said, we would stay here again, mostly due to the convenience to everything without being right on top of it all. I would recommend it as a place to stay for just a few nights.

Decent location, but lots of street noise

  • 3 of 5

The location was convenient. Acceptable walking distance to both the Passeig de Gracia and Universitat stations. Good selection of restaurants nearby.

There are 3 bedrooms. The bedroom that has two single beds has a window that faces the street. It is LOUD. Scooters and cars seem to love speeding up and down at night. If you expect to try to get to sleep between 10pm and 1am, it can be difficult. But then again, this is Barcelona, so you're probably out until 3 or 4am anyways.

Otherwise, the place is clean and livable. My only notes are that the shower drains slowly, and the place does not provide soap, so remember to bring your own. Oh, and a person in my group tried to do laundry, but then found out that there was no dryer.

L'Elample

  • 3 of 5

The location was great and walking distance to supermarket, restaurants and shopping. The check in was good, only I did not like having to pay cash upfront, but rather credit card for protection. Maybe that's why they only accept cash, so it may be harder to get your money back for any unforseen reason. Check in: I had to call several times to get in as there was no one there waiting for us. Finally, someone opened the lobby door and we entered to get out of the heat. Upon entering, the agent saw us and yelled from above to come on up! Not cool. The apartment was as advertised, only they did not have paper towels in the kitchen, or toilet paper for at least a week. I did not try out the washer, but there was no dishwasher. If you're on vacation, the last thing you want to do is wash dishes. That said, we ate out mostly. The other big thing was it was very hot! Ok if you have air conditioning, but this place did not. That meant we had to leave windows opened at night ( and it was noisy) only to wake up with mosquito bites on all of us, especially my young son who is very sensitive to bites. In the bathroom ( only 1) there was no shampoo or conditioner not to mention soap. You would think these amenities would be included. Lighting at night was mediocre, but if you like a dark place, its fine. This was especially true in the master bedroom. The photo that shows the light by the master bedside, did not even work. The lift is small, so plan on making several trips to the apt. if you have several luggage pieces, and don't want to climb 3 flights to get to the second floor. Nice overall, just not with conveniences that could make a huge difference for the price they charge.
