“Nice central apartments to explore Barcelona.”
Reviewed 2 June 2012 via mobile

My family spent 4 nights in a two bedroom apartment facing the back of the building. The apartment was just as pictured with a very large living room, small kitchen, medium sized master bedroom and very small second bedroom. There were two bathrooms and washer and dryer in the unit. The beds were pretty comfortable and one shower had two spray heads. The view to the back was nothing special but very quite at night. I was a little worried about doing an apartment instead of a hotel but having the living room to share with the family was nice. We did not have a balcony which was a little disappointing but it was a very clean unit. On the negative side there were only two English channels (cnbc and CNN), there were no basic essentials provided (no pods for expresso machine, no condiments, no laundry soap etc). Also I was very surprised that a charge of 15 euros per robe was required and no free wifi. The wifi charge was 30 euros for three days. The view from the top of the hotel was very nice but drinks were 14 euros a piece. The concierge was very helpful and there are many nice restaurants near by. All in all I would recommend these units for a family but not for two couples as the second bedroom was just too small.

My friend and I stayed in a two bedroom apartment for a week. The location, fixtures and setting was perfect. The only thing missing was a toaster. Apartment is in a great central location, the beds are extremely comfortable and having two bathrooms was a bonus. A highly recommended hotel apartment.

We spent 4 nights at the Majestic Residence in Barcelona in May 2012. We had a 2 bedroom with view apartment. We were on the lowest floor, and the view was minimal due to the trees. I think the trees probably block most of the views in most of the apartments unless you are on the highest floor. Otherwise, everything was excellent! The kitchen was great, the living room was large, the bathrooms were very nice, and the bedrooms were small but adequate. The location is also great. You are close to everything, but Passeig de Gracia quiet and sedate. There were many restaurants easily within 3 blocks in any direction. The subway is close, and taxis are readily available. From this property you have a maximum 10 minute cab ride to most of the cool places in the city. Most cab rides were under 10 euros (including tip). My only complaint other than the view was the subway noise. Unfortunately, I could hear the subway trains passing beneath the building. It wasn't loud enough to disturb me, but I did notice it. Otherwise, I very highly recommend this property, and would absolutely stay here again.

Room Tip: Get a view room on the higher floors.

We stayed here for 3 days in the penthouse duplex which was fabulous.The views from the terrace were breathtaking.The complimentary birthday cake delivered to the room was a lovely surprise. Alba from guest relations was a credit to the hotel ,she helped organise a bottle of champagne to be in the room and notified me when football tickets had been delivered to the hotel.She couldn't have done enough to help.The junior staff at reception were very friendly and always smiling,the senior people on reception should learn to smile more and not be so serious.
In summary a perfect location and very comfortable accommodation

We spent three nights in Majestic Residence in Barcelona in February. The appartment was of a very high standard as one would expect from the Majestic and it was extremely good value - one can use the facilities of the main Majestic Hotel over the road with its swimming pool looking across to the Sagradia Familia. It is also in an excellent location so we walked everywhere. We had a wonderful balcony with sun beds and were blessed with wonderful weather so made full use of the balcony and as it was at the back of the building it was very quiet. We would thoroughly recommend it to friends and family and would certainly stay there on a return visit to Barcelona.

We stayed at the Majestic apartments in March. I travelled with my wife and two daughters. it can be very hard to find a place to stay that will allow four persons per room. This was the perfect solution. Our apartment was very clean and modern. The location is great. Less than a block from the subway and in a great area of Barcelona. The hotel staff could not have been nicer. I would highly recommend staying there. It is really the perfect solution when traveling as a family.

We decided to try these apartments after reading a few reviews which were all very enthusiastic. The apartment block is across the road from the Majestic Hotel which owns the flats and you have full access to the Hotel facilities. The apartments are in the centre of the buy shopping and restaurant avenue the Passeig de Gràcia, only minutes walk from several Gaudi Houses and the Ramblas. The apartment was very well furnished in a modern but comfortable style. The small but well equipped kitchen was great for making a breakfast. This allowed us to go to the local market, and buy the fantastic hams, fruit and bread which is something I always want to do on holiday but never have anywhere to prepare the food. There was a Nespressos machine, so we had endless cups of good coffee. The large amount of space was great for relaxing and we had a balcony which over looked the peaceful back gardens of the restaurants and shops. When in the apartment you felt that you had left the nosey hustle and bustle of the Passeig de Gràcia, but once you were rested and ready to go out, you were straight back into this vibrant part of town. We made good use of the Hotel bar which was on the roof and had spectacular views of Barcelona which seemed to glitter in the mmon light. A relaxing but luxurious place to stay.

Room Tip: ask for a room that has a alcony that over looks the back gerdens which are very quite
