“Very clean, great location and very helpful staff”
Reviewed 21 February 2011

We were fortunate to find The Urban Suites in Barcelona whilst attending the world's biggest Mobile Exhibition. We had a mix of suites and appartments - all were very clean, well appointed and comfortable after very long days - a home away from home. Isa and her girls were brilliant and very helpful throughout. Superb!

The manager of aparthotel, Isa is very kindly and helpful. Without my request she pointed best sight of Barcelona on the map.
My apartman was modern and very well-equipped.
The berth of apartman is very good: the central is 4, Camp Nou is 3 station by underground. Sant Estacio is 5 min. on foot.

If you're looking for an apartment to stay in Barcelona .... your search should stop now. This is the place to stay !!

My wife and 2 teenage children stayed here in early Dec 2010, in a 2 bedroom apartment. It is well furnished, spacious, extremely clean and nice decor, had very clean bedsheets and towels.

The beds were extremely comfortable. This was our 4th holiday trip to Europe and beds here were the best that we have ever slept in when in Europe.

The location was superb as it was about a 5 mins walk from the main railway station, the Sants. Lots of eateries and a large supermarket within 3 mins walking distance. The apartment is in a very clean, safe and pleasant neighborhood.

The management staff were friendly and helpful. Allowed us to leave some of our luggage in the storage room for about 5 days when we traveled to Madrid. They were willing to let us stay another night if we could not leave Barcelona due to the air traffic controllers strike.

We will definitely stay in the Urban Suites the next time we visit Barcelona.

Stayed last weekend with son, attending Barca match . Great apartments with all mod cons. modern style but extremely comfortable and very well equipped, Hi tech tv in living room and smaller version in bedroom, if wanted. Also sound system and dvd player .

Great location about 5-7 minutes walk from Sants Estacion if arriving from airport and even closer to Tarragona metro station both on green line 3 which direct access to all main sights , shops Ramblas, port etc and of course the Camp Nou.

Staff extremely friendly and helpful , ask if a late check out on Sunday was possible due to late evening flight, not a problem just leave when you want was the reply
Cost to quality ratio I think you would be hard pressed to get better value and quality and staff deserve specail mention.

PS Sorry your team got beat Raquel, better luck next time

Hola Bill and Christopher!

What a nice review! It was a pity that Racing de Santander lost :( Anyway, to be honest, I knew that playing against gods (Messi, Xavi, Iniesta...) we had nothing to do.

We hope to see you again over here! And if you finally send to your wife and daughter we will take care of them!!

Best regards!! Y muchas gracias!!

Overall the Urban Suites were very good. We stayed just a few nights in Jan and found them to be everything we required.

Location is just outside the main tourist areas, which works very well. There are three Metro stations very close by, including one of the main overground stations (Sants, which by the way is the station you need if you want to go see the Dali Museum outside of Barcelona). It really takes no time at all to get to all the main spots across the City.

The apartments are clean and new with all the amenities you need. The kitchen was well stocked and worked perfectly. Design wise, they've kept it pretty simple and plain, nothing too offensive in our flat.

Service was excellent - all very friendly and they even let us leave our bags there all day after checking out free of charge before we headed out of the City. The made the stay even more enjoyable.

Free Wi-Fi too...important!

Why an apartment? (1) an opportunity to experience Barcelona more like a resident than merely as a tourist; (2) more privacy; (3) more space; (4) flexibility to supplement dining out with meals prepared as you want and when you want. (We have rented apartments in Paris, Sorrento and Vancouver )
Why the Urban Suites? (1) an easy, quick, inexpensive train trip from the airport to Estacio de Sants. No changing of train lines is required. (Exit the station toward Carrer Tarragona and immediately turn right down the first street so that you pass the Hipermarket on your left. Urban Suites will be on your left after a walk of 200 to 300 yards.); (2) convenient grocery shopping at the Hipermarket and, if needed, car rental at the Estacio Sants Hertz or Sixt offices (3) easy walking access to the important stations of Estacio Sants and Espanya to facilitate exploring the city or making day trips to places such as Montserrat, Sitges or Girona; (4) by our experience, a very safe neighborhood; (5) Isabel and/or Raquel are on site during the day and into the evening to give you suggestions for activities or dining.

The apartments were easy to find and only took 20 minutes to get to from the airport. (15 minutes Aerobus journey and then 5 minute walk from Placa d'Espanya.)

Lots of work being carried out on all the roads and pavements close by, so don't be put off by the railings and barriers etc. The apartments are perfect inside!!

We checked in on Christmas Eve and we were given a map of the area and shown where the tourist spots, metro stations and local supermarkets were. Very helpful, very friendly staff!! Our apartment was very clean and spacious. It had everything we needed for our stay.

We expected the staff cover in the apartments to be limited over the Christmas holiday days but there was someone in the office everytime we passed the door and we were given a telephone number to contact 24/7 if we needed anything.

We would definately book the apartments again if we go back to Barcelona!
