“Perfect for Families!”
Reviewed 29 January 2013

We are a family of 5 and we really enjoyed our stay at the Urban Suites! Raquel was so helpful and friendly. We highly recommend the Urban Suites! In fact, our friends booked a room for their upcoming vacation. Thanks, Raquel from the Custodio family. You made our stay in Barcelona memorable!

Fantastic suites, modern, clean, stylish, spacious and in a great location!! I was initially reluctant to stay in self catering accommodation rather than a Hotel for our long weekend but as soon as we arrived I realised what a fantastic choice it was to stay at The Urban Suites! As we were 3 people it made a much better option than squashing into a Hotel room as the suite gave us a living area, aswell as a bedroom and a really well-equipped kitchen.
Theres a hotel style reception area with really helpful staff, who gave us loads of great tips to find our way around and make the most of our stay.
There is a supermarket just a 5 minute walk away to stock up on breakfast items, cafes on the doorstep and a cash point right outside.
There is a metro stop about a 2 minute walk away and Placa de España is a 5-10 minute walk away where there is another metro stop on the main line so it made getting around the city really easy! There is also a large shopping centre there inside the old bull ring.
We went to Barcelona for a concert which was held at Palacio San Jorge and we actually walked from the urban suites in around 30 minutes after the concert which was great as it was impossible to get a taxi due the number of people and theres no metro from there!
I would highly recommend this accommodation and I will definitely stay there again next time I go to Barcelona!

We stayed for one night as we were on our way back from the Pyrennes. Hotel is very conveniently located to Barcelona Sants station. The apartment was fab- great views, very spacious and very clean. Reception staff were very helpful and pleasant. We would love to have stayed longer and would definitely stay there again.
(Beds are very comfy and the kids loved the sofa bed)

We arrived on Christmas day and were pleasantly greeted by Isa. She (and her staff) are very kind and provided excellant personal service with everything we needed (booking tickets online, calling for taxi's, restaurant recommendations, ect). She took her time to show us a map of the city, getting around on the subway and also showed us the apartment. The suite was spacious and comfortable with a well equiped kitchen, good shower and very clean. Located on a quiet residential street it is very conviently located to subway stops (closest one is one and a half blocks at end of street), a main train station (estancio sants is a mere few blocks away) and plenty of taxi's and buses. The subway system was very easy to navigate and efficient (T 10 tickets are a good deal) making major tourist areas a very quick ride away.Las Arenas, Placa Espanya, Hostafrancs market and Parc Montjuic are a short walk.There are plenty of neighborhood convenience stores, pharmacies (open on x-mas), bars and various restaurants (Zarauth which is around the corner had good food and a very attentive friendly bartender), grocery stores,bakery and bank right around the corner. We had a very enjoyable stay and are glad that we chose the Urban Suites!

Plenty of positives for this place. Very good location to get to central Barcelona via metro quickly, good variety of supermarkets, and airport bus and tour bus only 5 mins away. Staff provide excellent service and the apartment we had was great.

We stayed here for 5 nights due to relatives living nearby and to visit Barcelona again. Also we have a ten month daughter so needed an apartment for something to do in the evenings when the baby was asleep.

As our apartment wasnt ready we were given a bigger one and I must say how comfortable it was for our needs. The apartment was spacious with a fully functional kitchen and sitting room for the evenings. There was a spacious second room for our baby so she was not disturbed at night.

From our experience of varying excellent and bad hotels. The service was generally very good. It seemed like a smaller run business and although service finished 9-10pm it posed no problems and Isa, Raquel and their team always seemed keen to help us with anything we needed. They clearly cared and customer service was important to them.

we arrived at about 9pm and we were met by raquel, who couldn't have done more to help us. the apartment itself was large, very clean and modern, all amenities that you need are provided. the black out blinds were brilliant, but the apartments were not quite as soundproofed as we thought that they would be, as we heard a fair bit of noise from other guests during the night. the hotel was only a minutes walk from tarragona metro station, so getting around was easy. the only negative was that if you wanted to watch any tv in bed, the only english station was bbc news, but you tend to find that this is normal in most hotels anyway. also our friends arrived a day after us, and they were put in the room next to us which we thought was really nice.

We've spend there 6 nights in Sept/Oct. It is very close to subway station Tarragona thus you'll never have any problems with travelling to any part of the city. Placa Espanya is just 10-minute walk from the hotel thus you can enjoy walking even in the night.
The suite was very clean. There are really big windows and we had a lot of sunlight in the room. Staff is really great! They always try to do their best to make your stay there really enjoyable.
The locations seems to be safe and silent. It's very unlikely that you'll be disturbed by some noise from the street in the night. We heard some ppl there just once at the night.
Thanks to Isabel! I hope that next time in Barcelona I'll stay in The Urban Suites.
