“A great place to stay on a city break”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

I have just arrived back from a mon-friday city break in Barcelona. We chose this accommodation because we wanted our own facilities to make food. We were not let down. Firstly the staff were kind enough to let us check in at 1pm when we arrived even though check in is at 2. We booked a superior apartment which I must say didn't look the same as it did online but I didn't mind too much. We had a good shower and bath, a kitchenette with a fridge/freezer(small), kettle, microwave and hob, twin beds, big tv and a balcony. This was the best part in my opinion.
We were in room 506 so we were looking out to the back of the building overlooking a basketball court which wasn't used while we were there, so it was very quiet. I did see that the balconies on the front of the building looked newer, these may be the rooms that have been done up, but it may have been noisier on the street.
Location: We were about a 20min walk to our hotel from Catalunya square. We walked up a street called Universate (or similar) which has great places to eat - creparie with cheap and nice ice cream, Granier bakery - lovely pastries and tutti frutti frozen yoghurt. We didn't mind the walk as you saw more that way but there is a metro stop right next to the hotel if you prefer that.
There was also a supermarket literally next door with lots of great fresh food and all really cheap. I'm so glad we went self catering.
Don't forget to visit the park a couple of blocks down that may go unnoticed. It has a library and palm tree walkway with parrots.
The staff were very helpful and let us leave our bags on the day of check out so we could walk about the rest of the day without them.
All in all a very pleasant stay.

This hotel is perfect for Camp Nou, but otherwise you need to either catch the metro (a two minute walk), or catch a taxi to visit the centre of Barcelona.

There were two adults and two teenagers. The room was spacious, with a small kitchenette. Breakfast was varied. Staff were extremely helpful, and guided us to places of interest.

Would happily stay here again,

This is a really nice hotel in the Les Corts area of Barcelona. We arrived late and check in was quick and easy. The hotel staff were polite and spoke very good English and were extremely helpful. Our room was spacious with a small, well equipped kitchen, a small living area with a couch, table and tv. The bedroom area could be separated by a sliding door for extra privacy. The room was cleaned daily and we had fresh towels every day. We had a digital safe in our room which was free. The restaurant in the Hotel was good and the set menu was good value. The hotel is a couple of minutes walk from the Metro which is cheap, efficient and takes you to most of the main tourist attractions. Overall we were extremely pleased with this hotel and the staff and would return if we go back to Barcelona

This hotel was amazing, as we booked a cheap deal through E.bookers we thought that the hotel would be small dingy and just be somewhere that we slept,

This was a brilliant hotel with friendly staff who all spoke brilliant english. The room catered for 3 of us for 4 days. Had a lovley small kitchin, bathroom, sofa bed and two singles. the room was cleaned everyday with fresh towels provided.

I cannot fault this hotel, 2 minuites up the road from the metro which is the easyest train system to use.

There is a lovley bar around the corner which does be best mojitos.

Aparthotel Atenea, Carrer de Joan Güell is in the Les Corts area of Barcelona. Each room is adequately equipped to ensure a fantastic short stay self catering experience. The surrounding streets are filled with supermarkets to stock the fridge. The hotel does, however, have a very reasonably priced à la carte restaurant. During my stay you could have a three course evening meal for 18€.
Also in the various side streets are good patisseries, restaurants and bars. Next door there is something for the Harley Davison enthusiasts out there, a service garage, a Harley Davison shop and adjoining this, a 50's style diner serving fantastic food, tapas and drinks with live music most weekends. Must say very friendly, welcoming staff and management in 99% Moto Bar, give it a try!
A bonus feature to the Atenea is it's proximity to the Camp Nou, no more than a five minute walk from the beautiful stadium. Fantastic for travelling football fans during Champions League and even if you're not a football fan, still a very worthwhile visit.
The purpose for my visit was vocational so out of my twelve day stay I didn't get to do much sightseeing but after driving around and studying maps, the Aparthotel is not too far from most attractions. As I have mentioned my visit was work based and was working at La Fira Gran Via exhibition halls and the trip from hotel to the halls lasted 5-10mins depending on the traffic. For those who are thinking of using this hotel while working at the halls, across the road from the halls is a fabulous shopping centre with an array of designer shops, and a huge Carrefour that sells everything.
Carrer de Joan Güell is a great street for commuting around the city with a taxi rank at one end and the Metro at the other.

We loved this hotel. The locality is clean, peaceful, safe and located slightly away from the center of the city with every facility at hand. The metro is just a few minutes away. After a days worth of travel, we could eat in the hotel or at the resturant with the hotel. The staff was very helpful. The resturant is accommodating and does their best to suit everyone's need; specifically smaller children. It was an ideal choice for the price we payed. wifi service was pretty good on 5th floor. The cab stand is just next to hotel and easily accessible. If you need cab at odd hours, reception will help you get one in a few minutes.

I would like to specifically thank Joan (pronounced Juan) who was super helpful at the reception helping us with all information on where to visit and how. Joan also helped me on the phone before travel to ensure we had all the information required before travel. Rita also helped us settle during the wee hours of checkin after a long journey.

Room Tip: If you want strong wifi, mention it during checkin and they will give you on a floor where reception...
