“Nice apartments and centrally located in barcelona”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2013

Hostemplo apartments are centrally located in Barcelona and close to the sagrada family church which is the best tourist spot in the city.

We were family of 7 and stayed in their 2 bedroom apartment. The view from gallery is good. The apartment is equipped with lift and all the appliances and amenities. They also offer full set of toiletries in the bathrooms which is rare for apartments.

The beds are comfortable and rooms are specious. The bathrooms are small but very well organised.

The check inn was smooth and for check out there was nothing to be done. Just leave the keys in the apartment and leave. They keep your credit card details in case of any other charges needs to be applied after you leave, they will charge it on your credit card. Otherwise full charges are to be paid on arrival and then you are free. No hassle at the time of check out.

It is bit far from the La Ramblas road which is the main tourist spot of the city, but if you wish, you can always walk down.

There is one good indian restaurant named Restaurent vegetaria. It is hardly 1 KM from the apartment. They offer good indian food and also offer delivery to the apartment.

Barcelona has a great range of accomodation types. A very popular one consist on booking nights on apartments. This is the case of Hostemplo Suites.

The apartments are very very nice, with modern appliances and comfortable beds. The building is stylish and a Nespresso Machine in the appartment was a nice feature.

But there are two main problems. The first one concerns to service. I wasn't expecting hotel services, but a rule that oblies the guests to do their own dishes is a little oppressive for a place that charges 170 euros per night. The total lack of communication with any representative of the property is also a problem. Again, I wasn't expecting a concierge, but a receptionist or a contact for problems, or maybe to help you with a taxi call would be expected in this case, that a hotel runs a building with many rooms that are rented on a short term, simillar to a hotel.

The second problem is location. Maybe I wasn't very familiar with Barcelona, but even being close to the Sagrada Familia, the area is very quiet and lacks of nice restaurants and spots, that are much closer to Passeig de Gracia than this place.

Comparing prices and benefits I would choose a hotel for a next travel to Barcelona. The only great advantage of these apartments are for family trips. If you are going with kids you are going to love this place. But for a trip with friends, I'm not that sure that this is the best option.

We stayed in the 2 room apartment on 4th floor - lovely, just like the pictures on the website. Check-in was easier than expected given that it was a different location but the lady spoke good English and was very helpful, pointed out places to eat as she walked us over to the apartment. Lots of small grocery shops nearby and a great boulangerie round the back of the block. A short walk to the Sagrada Familia with a small park (swings for kids), metro stop and lots of restaurants round the other side of the cathedral (go past MacDonalds, Subway, KFC...). Food is a bit cheaper than UK. Metro is good clean and fast - we never had to wait more than 3 minutes. An A-10 ticket costs 9.8Euros and gives you 10 metro rides. From Sagrada Familia take line 2 a few stops to Passeig de Gracie, then a short walk to Catalunya and the Ramblas or line 5 to Collblanc for Camp Nou stadium, definitely worth a visit though the must-have souvenirs are not cheap. We had an easy trip back to the airport too, metro to Passeig to Gracie and then walk to Catalunya to catch the Aerobus to the airport (takes about 30 minutes). Just a small grumble about the apartment: we were surprised to be interrupted so often by the staff when we were only there 4 nights. One day we had 4 visits, the maintenance man rang the bell but the cleaning lady just walked in. We saw her often and it was a bit intrusive. But overall a great stay, great choice of apartment, we'd choose it again.

Room Tip: 4th floor deluxe was a great choice

It was our first international journey with 2 children. The apartment was very nice. Good sight, cleaned room, new staff. Supermarket, bar & restorants were closed to it. Metro only 500mt distance. They stored the baggages till our leaving. Thank you for everything.

Lovely apartment in a quieter district a little away from the main tourist bussle. The Sagradia Familia was viewable from the window and Las Ramblas was a 10 minute walk away. All the stuff you need for a short stay.Supermarkets less than a minute walk away. Clean, secure, well kept and manned by pleasant helpful staff. More than happy and very reasonable priced.Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

We stayed at Hostemplo Suites this weekend and were very impressed with the standard. The apartment was the perfect size for two people. It was clean, comfortable and very well equipped. If you are after self catering this place is perfect. Nespresso maker (which comes with 4 cartons which you top up when you run out) Good working oven/ cooker, microwave, fridge, microwave and dishwasher. We were a few minutes walk from supermarkets, a bakery and a charcuterie so it was nice to pop out and buy breakfast every morning to take back to the apartment. Bed was very comfortable and they have blackout curtains so we slept well! Bathroom also good, comes with towels and they supply you with loo roll when you run low. The only downside is that at times it was noisy due to traffic (rush hour or when you have the balcony doors open) but that would always be the case when staying in a busy city so can't really complain. You could also hear the people above at times, so if you are a light sleeper then take ear plugs. You're a short walk from the Sagrada Famila and if you decide to take a hop on/ hop off bus tour, there are stops oppposite the Sagrada Familia. The owners of Hostemplo can book the tour for you and you get a 10% discount too. All in all an excellent stay, lovely owners- I'd highly recommend to anyone.

Comfortable apartment (we lived in an apartment 53). The room has everything you need. Cleaning every day. Beautiful views. Near the subway. But comfortable apartments for up to 3 people and had problems with warm water (can comfortably take a shower only 2 people)
