Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Stayed in the DestinationBCN - universitat location rooms. It was perfect for a few nights in Barcelona. The location was perfect and in the center of everything we wanted to do and see. The room is small, but had everything we needed. The minibar, snacks, and espresso were all great. Occasionally, you could hear the metro go by, but it wasn’t loud enough to keep you awake at night. We had a great time here and would definitely stay here again in the future!

The apartment had a combo washer/dryer, which was lovely to have given that some of our luggage arrived a day late. Very roomy apartment, with separate bedroom, kitchenette and living room. It was equipped for cooking in, but the restaurants are so good in Barcelona, that we never went elsewhere.

We stayed at the Eixample Penthouse for a week. The apartment was beautiful, impeccably clean, well stocked kitchen and had an AMAZING view! We are super picky and this place was perfect. We then needed to extend our trip at the last minute and DestinationBCN was extremely helpful in getting us into one of their other apartments (Canadilla) which also AMAZING! We highly recommend DestinationBCN, they exceeded our expectations!

Have stayed at several Barcelona apartments. This is the best experience so far. Apartment clean, well supplied, nicely decorated, great and very helpful staff. In a good area for tourists but I plan to try a different area next time......their apartment with a terrace. Only problem was my credit card would not go through. When it finally went through the price had gone way up.

I had read all of the nice reviews here before booking the Cadaques apartment with the folks at destinationbcn. I have to say that not only were our expectations met, but far exceeded. Preliminary communication by e-mail with Anne during the booking process went very smoothly. She answered all of my questions in a timely manner. When we arrived, Patricia came downstairs to greet us, helped us with our bags and explained the features of the apartment to us.

The apartment itself was perfect for our family of four. The location was on a relatively quiet side street that was a couple of blocks from all of the action on Placa Catalunya. As one of my teenage daughters exclaimed: “they really hooked us up”. The two bedroom/two bath apartment seemed to have everything we could require: a spacious living room with flat screen satellite TV and DVD player, a beautiful kitchen with gleaming appliances and utensils, a washer/dryer, and a large terrace. The wireless internet was actually faster than the connection in our home! There was a basket of oranges and nuts on the kitchen table and the refrigerator was stocked with a bottle of Cava and homemade chocolates, a nice touch.

I would not hesitate to recommend www.destinationbcn.com to anyone looking for an alternative to staying in a hotel in Barcelona. We loved our vacation in Barcelona and the Cadaques apartment from desinationbcn.

We rented with another family two of the four apartments in one of Miklos and Anne's buildings - at 11 Ronda Universitat - the large Principal apartment on the 1st floor (really the second floor) and the Walden apartment on the third floor (really the fourth floor). The Principal apartment is about 1600 square feet, with two large master bedrooms (each with amazingly comfortable king beds (or two twin if you prefer), and each with en suite full baths, and the apt has a third large full bath outside the kitchen, a very large kitchen, living room with a dining area and a table that seats 8. The Principal also has most charming and large outdoor space - a partially covered terrace/patio area - beautifully furnished with a built-in wrap-around couch area that could easily seat about 8 adults very comfortably and a lovely dining table that also seated at least 8 if not more) - which was wonderful for late afternoon drinks before dinner or morning coffees. The weather in March was perfect - sunny and '60s (Fahrenheit) during the day - so the terrace was really useful. The Walden apt is about 1000 sq feet or so (rough estimate), and has two ample bedrooms, each with king beds, and one large bathroom, as well as a very well set-up kitchen, dining area and living room, and it had a wonderful glass enclosed terrace off the living room that overlooked the Ronda. Both apartments were furnished and equipped with top of the line items - soft linen sheets, thick towels, Bosch appliances, brand new tables, chairs, etc - and all very modern in design, but the owners also kept the charm and bones of the underlying pre-war builidng - with exposed brick, all beautifully renovated. The kitchen and all baths were finished with beautiful new granite, marble or tile - all in excellent condition - so you felt as if the place was never lived in before. We have rented many apartments over the years in numerous European cities, and none compared to the quality, size, comfort and lay-out of these apartments. Also, although the apartments overlook a very bustling Ronda Universitat, which is very conveniently located a block or so from Placa Catalunya and the beginning of the Las Ramblas (not to mention almost every Metro line and shopping locale you could want), they replaced the windows with what seem like triple-paned glass - so while you could see out from these lovely floor to ceiling windows, the apartment was so quiet, you felt like you could have been in the country. (Granted you did feel a bit of a vibration now and again from the Metro that must be running nearby - but that itself was absolutely not an issue. In fact without that, it may have been TOO quiet in the apartment, if that's possible.) Anne, Miklos and Patricia were wonderful managers, always available by cell or email if needed, and all spoke English perfectly. Also, the WiFi connection was perfect - no delay and very easy to log-on. Given the choice, it's hard to understand why anyone would spend twice as much at a hotel where you get half the space and amenities. The photos of the apartments on the site do not do them justice - really. It is hard to capture how beautifully appointed and laid out they are. I read reviews carefully before renting apartments whenever I can, and nothing I ever read about these apartments was untrue or exaggerated. I cannot say enough great things about [-] apartments.

Hi Tracey, this apartment is fantastic, very spacious, well located and has everything you need. The english speaking staff meet you at the apartment when you arrive and explain everything. A taxi ride from Sants train station will only cost you about 12-15 euros. You can just grab one at the taxi stand. (Taxi drivers in Barcelona never rip you off) Have a great stay.

Dear Mr / Mrs, Thank you for getting in touch with us. We think that you might be mistaken with another apartment rental provider in Barcelona, as we have no booking starting March 16. We don't have apartments that can sleep 8 persons either. Kind regards, Anne

Hi Lisa .. We stayed in BCN apartments at 'Universitat' loved our front street facing apartment.. beautiful 1 bedroom but no walk out terrace... only double french window/doors that opened to Juliette style balcony Most of the apartments with terraces are at the back - equally as lovely, but there is a huge apartment block right next door that looks into /onto the terrace & apartments.
