Las Ramblas Passatge Bacardi Apartments

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 January 2014

Very good basic (ikea furniture) accommodation on Las Ramblas. 500m from sightseeing bus stop. Ideal for those not needing any fuss or assistance, it is an apartment after all not a hotel. Travelled as a group of 5 females mixed ages felt safe at all times. Ideal base, very clean although pillows were a bit hard nothing to complain about though. Ok for groups but if only 2 would suggest a hotel is better.

The noise out in Las Ramblas on the Friday night was beyond anything I have experienced. It was as though the revellers were in our room. Three of us were up drinking tea at 2am. Everytime we boiled the kettle the fuse would flip and we were in darkness. The fellow was very friendly but could do nothing he could do on a Sat night. The worse part was the cloak and dagger entrance. we had to use a key on a big heavy door, remeber a code to enter our building then life up one an then two more keys. Don't look for a big sign or any sign - it's on a door button buzzer. Good luck.

Room Tip: Stay away from the noise.

We are currently installing windows with a new soundproofing system and air conditioning in all the rooms to eliminate the noise during the weekend from such a central location. All windows will be installed by the end of January 2014.

We came to this apartments with 2 families with 3 kids each. Building is very old; dirty; and surroundings are not the best. There are no services at all; if you want to wash clothes you have to wait like 5 hours because washer/dryer are VERY slow. Rooms are ugly, with insects. Don't stay there please. There are a lot of good and cheap hotels near by. By night there is a LOT of noice. We stayed in an apartment that has a very bright light and no blackout curtain!!

This person was clearly in an apartment that was not here! We have a washing machine and dryer inside all each apartment, the washin machine is fast and last 30 to 50 minutes depending on the programme, all the windows in the apartments are soundproof and have good isolation and acoustic ceilings, and the palace is totally renovated and is cleaned every day.

Bacardi Apartments is in a great location; it is situated on La Rambla, which makes it easier to travel anywhere.

The apartment we stayed in was for 5 people; two Queen size beds and a sofa bed in the living room/kitchen. The sofa bed was very comfortable, however it was in a room that did not have air conditioning so when the bedroom doors were closed, sleeping was hot and difficult. Despite this, the bedrooms were comfortable, especially with the memory foam pillows they provide.

The kitchen area had all necessary utilities; the bedrooms were at a decent size; the bathroom was clean and the living room was spacious.

We were all happy with the apartment; however we did have some concerns about staff. On one night of our stay, we left £30 on top of our make-up bag on one of the side tables before we headed out. When arriving back to the apartment, the money was gone. We spent 40 minutes looking for the money in every room, every trouser/bag/jacket pocket, every suitcase etc. but had no luck. We decided to mention this to reception and on the next day, they decided to change the locks of the room. We handed our keys to a particular member of staff and headed out again. On the same night when we arrived, the money reappeared again. I'm not sure what to think, but I would say that if you do stay here, lock up your valuables in your suitcase.

Additionally, certain staff could smile more and be a lot more friendlier...

If this incident did not occur, I would have highly recommended this place and would have given it 4-5 stars.

First of all I apologise for this issue. Our receptionist is the only person with access to the keys of the apartment, and if there is any robbery during your stay, our liability insurance covers any claim or complaint for loss or theft inside of the apartment.

Went with my two brothers for a couple nights. These apartments are seriously in the best location. Armand was extremely helpful, gave us a map all filled out on where we should go and where his fav spots are. It was perfect location.

Best place to stay in Barca. Great location with everything right at your doorstop. The hotel staff were so friendly and helpful. Can't speak highly enough of this place. The only negative thing (if it is one) it was hard to find. We did continually walk past it every day, it was on the weekend though so the gates were shut. You'll know what I mean. Definitely stay here.

Great location at Las Ramblas Bacardi Apartments! Right in the middle of the action on the busy streets with tons of shops, restaurants and the market. A few blocks away is the Placa Catalunya where you can get the fantastic Hop on, hop off bus tours.

They have apartments near Placa Reial but the ones we stayed in were a few shops' walk away, on Las Ramblas street. They seemed newer (though still 'old') and decorated sparsely, but clean. We had a three bedrooms, three bathrooms apt. for 6 people and it was perfect. The elevator is TINY and only fits one person with a small suitcase or two people squeezed in. Fun, actually! We used the stairs, though were four flights up, so may not be for everyone. There was ample light from the windows in the apt. but no good lighting in the kitchen.
Small fridge was broken and it took 24 hours to get someone in to fix it. Though it worked weakly for an hour or so, it stopped again so we had no refrigeration. :( Rooms all had their own a/c so we slept comfortably.

I'd book this place again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the newer building a block away from Placa Reial, but we didn't see those room...
