“Great Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2013

Right across the street from the hop on hop off and from the La Pedrera. Plenty of shops and places to eat all around. The rooms were huge and very clean. Wifi was free but very slow. You could feel the subway even from the 8th floor. The male employees could have been a little bit nicer. We did not get our rooms until 2 pm, but we did get an extra hour on our last day.

We stayed in Barcelona for 6 days and wanted an apartment . This place turned out to be the best of both worlds. A spacious apartment that is cleaned everyday as if we were in a hotel. We decided to take the penthouse and were really pleased with the decision . We had a huge terrace overlooking one of Gaudi's buildings that is lit up each evening . A table for four , we had breakfast outside each morning. Also two lovely lounge chairs for naps in the afternoon . The entire building is spotless and the concierge who is on the premises 24 hours a day was friendly and helpful with good suggestions for restaurants and tapas bars . A very small pool on the roof top but a great view of the city. It's a perfect location walking distance to all the sights . Will definitely stay there again

Room Tip: Penthouse with view of de gracia

The staff were very friendly and helpful. We did not speak spanish but this was not a problem as all staff spoke english. The apartment was spacious and clean. The only disappointment was the the two single beds for our teenage children. The bed in the second bedroom was a short single wedged between a cupboard and wall- fine for a small child under ten but not a fully grown teenager. We moved the mattress onto the ground so my son could hang his feet off over the end. The second single bed was the sofa in the lounge room. This was not clear on the website when booking. I would certainly stay there again as a couple or if staying as a family I would double check on the single beds. The location was fantastic, close to metro station, walking distance to main train station and enjoyable long stroll to old town. Plenty of restaurants and designer shops in street. There is also small supermarket close by. Very safe area.

My family stayed here in July for 9 days. This was our first time to Europe with a youngster so we wanted to ensure we were comfortable and safe.

In short, we loved the apartment and the service!

The air conditioner in our first apartment didn't work and it was blazing hot. I thought this was how Spain was, but I called down to make sure. We stayed for 1 night in that apartment then the next day the concierge quickly moved us to a nice larger apartment for the remainer of our stay. Also included a nice bottle of wine.

The staff are very courteous and kid friendly. They helped us buy tickets online for the Sagrada and recommended some great places to eat.

There is a lovely small pool on the roof where our son spent alot of evenings. The view from the roof is awesome, across the street is Gaudi's La Pedrera , and the eveything else is just a short walk away (even the Starbucks for us hopeless North Americans). The area is full of shopping and restaurants and very safe at night. Off the main street are lots more other cafe's and shops.

It's not a inexpensive place to stay but worth every penny. Lots of great memories.

Thanks Suites Avenue!

These are great, very well equipped, comfortable apartments. The location is excellent and if you can its worth booking a room with views of the Casa Mila (la Pedrera). The Reception staff are very helpful. The gym is reasonable but the pools are much smaller than they appear in the photos.
One tip the rooms have a nespresso machine so if you have one at home bring some capsules to get you started.

We loved our stay at the Suites Avenue - though it was pricy.
The front desk was very helpful with insider tipps for good restaurants and so on.
The location is perfect to get to all the places in Barcelona, it makes this citytrip so much easier.
We had a balcony facing Casa Mila and the rooftop was amasing too. The pool is good for refreshment, but not really for swimming (very small).
I didn't like the agreement you had to sign at the beginning - saying you have to keep the kitchen clean, otherwise you need to pay extra 50 € for cleaning. I think with this price this should be included.
In the second floor you could hear and feel the Vibrations of the Metro - not very loud but still.
Also you could hear everything from the hallway in the rooms - but there was not much going on so it was calm and peaceful and not really disturbing.

The front desk assistance was always helpful and had great recommendations. Nothing was too much trouble and when we needed something we just asked. The rooms were well appointed and very comfortable, we had 2 different sizes and both served their purposes most comfortably. I would stay here again and happily sample other Derby Hotels on offer.

Room Tip: Make sure you state clearly what you need from your room, theyre definite in their setup
