The rooms look very modern with lots of glass. They have a bit of an 'Ikea' feel to them; some of the furniture is already starting to show some wear even though everything seems to be fairly new. The glass door of the toilet wasn't hung properly.
Having said that, our room at the back was very quiet. So quiet that we could sleep with an open window and that is a great luxury in Barcelona with so much street noise.
So the 'sleep value' (sleep quality compared to what you pay) is great for a hotel in downtown Barcelona!

Room Tip: Rooms on the back are away from the street noise and are really quiet. They look out on the back, so...

Very modern style hotel, room decor are simple but practical and clean. The bathroom was very nice had a large walk in wet room with a powerful shower with choice of overhead shower or spray shower. Had our towels changed and room cleaned every day. Great location, only few minutes away from La Rambla & Passeig de Gracia, Metro station only round the corner from the hotel. Staff are very friendly and helpful speaks fluent english. Mini Market opposite the hotel which is very convenient. Ideal hotel and location for a city break would definately recommend to others

Dear Ako suite team,
This is Mustapha MALIKI from Morocco, I occupied room number 501 in your Apart-hotel Akosuite by means of Laterooms, and i was very happy of the service and kindness as well as efficiency of your staff especially Rustam, Patricio, Tatiana, and others...
I hope to come back to your hotel soon and I will recommend it to my friends and acquaintances, and I hope you will always offer me good price and service.
Thank you once again and see you soon.
Best regards.

Mustapha MALIKI

Four of us stayed at Ako Suites for 1 night in Barcelona. The hotel was spotless, staff very helpful and the stay very good value for money with the extra space the apartment hotel format offers. HOWEVER, the loo and shower are glass walled, and the glass is not 100% frosted - bizarrely it has patterns cut in the frosting. So there you are, in the middle of the room on the loo in (almost) plain sight of anyone who cares to look. Now I know us Brits are a bit prudish but I was glad to find a loo in the starbucks down the road with a nice solid door.

Having said all that, Ako is brilliantly located within easy walking distance from La Ramblas and other attractions. There is a fabulous tapas bar just round the corner called La Flauta which was recommended by the reception staff and although we had to wait an hour for a table, it was worth it.

I recommend Ako Suites and would go back.

We would like to thank you for the comment, we appreciate the possibility to know if the client felt comfortable in our hotel.

We regret you did not feel very comfortable with the bathrooms. We would like to comment you that there are also rooms with a bath instead of the shower where the walls are not made of glass. If we knew you were disgusted with the bathroom we would change you the room. If you visit us once again just put in the comments of your booking the preference of the room with a bath and we will provide it to you!

excellent location, also very quiet. Very polite staff, very clean, rooms a bit small for the price. Very good idea for the kitchen/wardrobe,and sofa area
on the down side, windows do not open, and the all glass bathrooms are a little disconcerting, although there are some good toilets available near reception on the ground floor.could not get the televisions to change to english language, and neither could the staff, only a business news channel in english

Thank you very much to leave a comment about your stay in our hotel, we are very pleased to know your opinion. We are happy to hear you liked our hotel and we will consider your critics to improve our service.

We would like to comment that there is an option to see the channels of the TV in the original language and we are sorry there were difficulties with making it during your stay.

In respect of the walls of the bathrooms, these are made with a special design in a modern style and we regret it provided you some inconvenience. Nevertheless, if you visit us once again you can book a room with a bath which has another type of walls (not the glass ones) and where definetely you will feel comfortable.

I chose the Ako Suites for a one night stay prior to going on a cruise. It met our needs perfectly, very friendly staff, nice decor and very clean. Great location with a wide range of bars and restaurants on your door step and just a short walk to some of the main tourist sites. Very pleased with our choice and I would definitely stay again.
