“Home away from home in ideal location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2014

We were entirely pleased with our stay at Suites Avenue. The staff were extremely helpful. We arrived shortly before noon and the previous tenants had departed. Rather than make us wait several hours to check in they expedited the room cleaning so we could get settled right away. While all the staff were wonderful I want to especially thank Ahmed (sp?). He patiently gave us detailed great advice at the beginning of our stay and handled our room review at the end. And let me say that while the idea of a room check might sound kind of strange, having a non-stressed pair of eyes to help make sure you've taken that passports out of the safe is a nice innovation. (Yes, really they want to make sure you haven't trashed the apartment, but still.) The washer/dryer is complicated, but worth using. The apartment is sylishly minimalistic and completely comfortable. We enjoyed relaxing on our couch looking out at our beautiful view before dinner after a hard day of sightseeing. The pool was too cold for us to use, but we enjoyed relaxing on the pool deck as well.

This apartment surpassed my expectations by far! First of all the location is on one of the Premier streets in Barcelona (in my opinion!) We were surrounded by very upmarket shops, not that I had any interest whatsoever in shopping, but if you did you only had to walk out the door. There must be hundreds of restaurants and cafes in the surrounding blocks, as a matter of fact there are excellent restaurants within 50 metres. You would be about a one to two kilometre walk to Las Ramblas area but if you don't want to stay in amongst the heaving masses, it's nice to come back to the oasis of Suites Avenue.

We stayed in a lovely one bedroom apartment with a very big terrace located at the back of the building overlooking the inner quiet area of the surrounding buildings (not over the main road) It was unbelievably quiet considering the high density area.

The staff are exceptional without any doubt. They couldn't do enough for us, it was so nice to be looked after, especially when we have stayed in apartments in the past, we were left to fend for ourselves which is absolutely fine, but it was lovely to have someone local who can make suggestions, book tours and shows, and generally just be there if needed.

One more thing that no one else seems to have mentioned in past reviews is the fantastic design of the building. Modern with high end granite and glass interiors with the best use of light. We were just blown away. We actually saw people with their back to the Casa Mila across the road taking photos of this apartment building!

You can't go wrong booking your stay here especially for a longer term stay.

Room Tip: We liked the quieter rooms at the back, especially with the large middle terrace.

We loved the apartment, clean, modern and three showers for three girls was perfect! :-)We spent most of the time on the roof sunbathing and enjoying the views. If I had to say something negative it would be that our balcony was teeny tiny - nothing like the photos on the internet suggested.

This appartment hotel is perfectly located and equiped with an excellent staff.
The rooms are modern stylish and still well kept.
The kitchen lacks more items to be described as fully equiped: salt & pepper, brush for washing dishes, dish towels and hangers for these - and a bin in a reasonable size. We had to ask daily for soap tablets for the dishwasher.
Kitchen rolls would have been a great help.
The terrace needs to be kept - grass grows up between the tiles.
We recommend this place even with the sparsely equiped kitchen.
You pay for what you get.

We stayed here for just over a week.
The staff are very friendly and helpful.
The pool is rather on the small size, as well as the fitness center, but its good enough to have a dip and get a work out.
The rooms are lovely and very clean. The only bad thing I have to say about them is that the bed was very VERY uncomfortable. It was extremely hard and we are more of a firm bed lovers. Also the internet isnt the best but they did provide us with a personal router and that did solve the problem.
All in all a very nice hotel, great location (albeit a little outside the center of town) and would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room to the court yard in the back.

We've just had one of the best holidays ever in Barcelona. Suites Avenue is outstanding. ... the location is unbeatable so close to Metro, Gaudi sights, good eating. The apartments are beautiful and very comfortable. We liked our room at the back of the building as it overlooks a quiet tree-filled courtyard. The view from the roof terrace is fantastic. And the reception staff top-rate - can't add to what's been said already in praise of them.
Mauri is a traditional patisserie/tapas just round the corner and great fun for a snack.

Room Tip: We liked the quiet room at the back, which also got the sun in the afternoon. You can see the view f...
