Our recent 6 day stay at his three star facility (as publicized by a major travel site) was a disaster. Firstly, these are not "apartments" but small rooms. Ours was about 450 sf barely large enough for two adults...and if you are tall (I am 6 foot 4) you will not fit in the bed or the tiny shower. The rooms are furnished with cheap children's furniture, and your will get no cleaning during your stay. Secondly, the building is located in a bad section...south of the Plz Glories begins a dark and dirty industrial section of Barcelona. The intersection of Tangers and Ali Bei is dark, dirty, marked by vacant lots and graffitti. See my pictures. Ali Bei where the building is located ( 7 Ali Bei ) is not even a street, but a narrow, dark, dead end alley way !!! Thirdly, the building has poor security. The front door does not lock during day light hours and shockingly there is a sign for the guests NOT to lock it themsleves. Thus the building entry is unsecure for most hours. Fourth, the WIFI seldom works and when you can connect you are frequently disconnected by a weak signal. Fifth, dont expect hot water for any length of time. The tank has a 40 Litre capacity. One can get a shower if quick, two maybe like warm and three, you are out of luck. Sixth, onsite management is not there is evening hours and spotty at other times. They tried to grapple with our complaints but senior management was rude, uncooperative and simply arrogant. Your wifi does not work ? There was a disturbance at 3AM yester day ? You must be lying...no one else complained.
Immediately upon seeing the facility I complained and attempted to leave after 2 days with a refund of the remaining days or to have our 3 star rental fee reduced to a more justifiable 1 star rate. No way - managment told us we could leave whenever we wanted with no refund.
Please AVOID this facility at any price !!
