Found our way fairly easily from the aerobus (airport bus) drop off point, just needed to ask once.. It was close by. Staff were so helpful and friendly. They suggested several activities, marking them on the free map they gave us, as well as the ones we had already precooked. The apartment was light, airy, large and very clean. I wish there had been a lock for the bathroom, which was accessed from two doors- a minor thing, though. Definitely recommended.

Stayed: August 2014, travelled with family

We recently returned from a week in Barcelona. We were travelling with two young children; my four year old and five month old sons. We chose the Urban Suites after extensive research based upon reviews and the size of the apartment available. I also really wanted to have some outdoor space if at all possible so booked a suite with a terrace for an extra cost.

We travelled everywhere by metro and, once we had it figured out, this was very convenient. I will say that anyone travelling with a buggy/stroller needs to be conscious that not ever metro stop has a lift or ramp access so we did end up carrying our child and buggy up many many flights of stairs before we finally figured out the right lines and stops to work with. We also relied a little too much on our metro map and only got out and walked around from place to place in the last few days. We were then quite surprised to realize that many of the locations were within walking distance of each other and even of the suites, and we sometimes took longer going on the metro then we might have if we had just walked!

The suites are good. The kitchen is well equipped, they are clean and spacious. There is a lot of storage space which was a real plus. Room 100 did have some issues with both showers leaking a lot onto the floors - particularly in the ensuite; where the shower door does not close properly. Isabelle was our primary contact at the reception and she was fantastic. Really helpful, pragmatic and friendly. We used her to book ahead for many of the gaudi related activities and that is a definite must this time of year when Barcelona has queues of tourists for absolutely everything!

The location is safe, there are plenty of small cafes around (including a good pizzeria across the road), and there is a big supermarket very nearby. The bed was very hard so I didn't have the best nights sleep while we were there but my husband had no issues so it depends on whether you like a hard or soft mattress I guess! It was very quiet at night which was perfect for us but I don't think that I would recommend the Urban Suites if you were seeking an active night life. For a family, it was perfect - and the terrace area on some of the suites is ideal if you want to sit out in the evening or enjoy some down time with the kids.

We a family of four stayed here for four nights. Very good apartment centrally located, safe and a good choice for a group to stay. We checked in at 9.15 pm (15 min late than the scheduled time), for which we paid 25 euro extra. Our apartment was in the other block and found out that there was not even one bottle of water to drink, and vending machine was in other block which was locked. Had to rush to near by market in morning to get a sache of shampoo before taking bath.I recommend that cleaning of apartment is required after at least two days. Free WiFi and proximity to main railway station, supermarket and Plaza d'Espana made our stay very comfortable and enjoyable.

Dear ssamra,

Thanks a lot for the nice review.

The two sides of the building are communicated through the parking and through the terrace, it´s not neccesary to go out to the street, sorry if we did not give you this information.

If you ever come back to Barcelona, please send us an email and we will give you our best deal.

We booked 9 nights, it was a very nice stay in this accommodation. It's quite, clean, comfortable bed, free laundry, dishwasher, and the location is very convenient , 5 minutes walk to big supermarket, 2 minutes walk to metro line 3 which turns out to be the most useful line to go to each view spot. Definitely recommend. Little bit expensive if you don't find special offer.
The only down part is the TV does have just one Italian speaking channels.

When we entered the place we thought that it is a hotel. But it was not. It was a suite or an apartment if you like. Everything was there for you. The owner is a nice lady offering lots of things to do in Barcelona. It is really a secure place. You enter the Urban Suites using your pin number.

Room Tip: All the suites are great

Stayed for 4 nights at the Urban Suites and everything was perfect. Clean, tidy, modern and spacious suite. Amazingly located just a few minutes walk from Plaza d'Espana - so easy to take the bus from airport and be in your suite 30 minutes later! Nearest metro station 3 minutes walk ensured we were wherever we wanted to be in the city quickly. Quiet location and comfy bed ensured deep sleep, and the service was polite, efficient, friendly and discrete. Highly recommended.
