“Gem in Barcelona”
Reviewed 29 May 2013

This new small apartment hotel is well located 5 minutes walk to the Universitat Metro and about ten minutes to Le Rambla. The hotel is in a relatively quite street, but there is a gay bar across the road, however it only seems to open on a Saturday night. The rooms are generous sizes, the bathroom is definately different with frosted but see through glass and the bedroom comes with 2 single beds side by side. The living room has 2 small chairs, and the kitchen is reasonably well equiped, however you will need to ask them for dishwashing liquid and cloth and they do not provide tea, coffee or milk which is now pretty standard for hotels, particularly as this one is rated as four star. We had a room at the back of the hotel which was quiet. There is a Supermarket across the road and a laundremat next door, and a good restaurant in the street. Didn't try the continental breakfast as this was 12 euro, better to go the Boqueria Market or Carrafours on the Ramblas and stock up on cheap food. The reception staff all spoke English and were very helpful.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back, no view just adjoining apartments.

The hotel is modern, new and clean. It's an apartment style, boutique hotel. The location is good, walking distance to La Rambla. There's a laundry next door and a few mini-marts nearby which is very convenient. The staffs are friendly and helpful. I enjoyed my 3 nights stay with Ako Suite Hotel.

It is more like a boutique apartment hotel. Contemporary design and new, small for hotel but comes with spacious rooms. We have a double bed rooms with a kitchen attached with some space for living room. Every thing is new and clean. I had a pleasant sleep and good showers. Receptionists were friendly and spoke English. Metro just near by, 20 min walk to La Rambla.

room : very big, minimal, with nice furniture and a praktical kitchinette
view : unfortunately the view was dissapointing. We were facing a wall (1st floor) and the higher levels were facing the nearby flats.
location : very good, in the center of barcelona, 10 minutes walk to las ramblas
breakfast: not included in the rate, you can order extra with 12E/person but its average and with the same price you can eat fantastic in the nearby bistros
service: kind and helpfull

Room Tip: try to book a room in the 3rd or the 4th floor. the view is slightly better

+ New hotel with modern design and clean big light rooms
+ Good location: 5 min walk to University tube & 10 min to Catalonia square
+ Friendly and knowledgeable hotel staff: they provided all necessary info about transfer options from the airport to the hotel. They speak at least English, Russian and Spanish
+ Daily room cleaning
+ Own kitchen
- We had a early flight and they forgot to order a taxi, anyway it came in 5 mins

Room Tip: Better not to book the room near the lift as you may hear it while sleeping

Comfortable hotel room in a great location. Desk staff was not helpful in providing any information even about basic restaurant recommendations in the neighborhood. Hotel staff not knowledgable even about basic transportation options to the airport. Hotel is in a great neighborhood within walking distance of almost all tourist destinations and only 2 blocks from the metro which allows easy access to the whole city. Room has refrigerator and microwave and pull out couch but beware the hotel charges an extra 40 euros per day to use the pull out couch.

We Booked last minute for my wife, myself and 2 children. Payed 192euro for 4 beds and when we arrived there was only 3. After calling reception the they organized a cleaner to sort out another bed. after returning from a late dinner with 2 very tired children the cleaner had smoked what smelt like a pack of cigarets in our room leaving the room and all our clothing with a bad smoke smell. We change room very late at night to a front room with lots of noise from late night party people. So we won't be going back.

Room Tip: Rooms in the rear of the hotel are much quieter.

First of all, we would like to thank you for sharing your opinion about our hotel, we appreciate all the critics concerning our service to improve it. It's a pity to hear you've got disappointed with our hotel. Nevertheless, we would like to comment that our cleaners do not smoke, especially in the rooms. Unfortunately, as you booked in last moment, only the rooms for smoking clients were left. We always try to follow our client's preferences, but it is more difficult when the hotel is fully booked. As we always try to help our guests, we changed you the room, but that day you had a bad luck with a noise on the street. Thank you once again for sharing your critics and we will make all the possible the situation would not repeat in the future.
