“Bijoux, but perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

The hotel has a great location. The bedrooms are small but 3 bedrooms gives the space for a family. The interiors are stylish. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Would certainly stay again as it offers a family respite during a city break. Only issue is that gym access only for those over 17 years old.

Located a block from Sagrada Familia. Close to Starbucks and cafes. Our 3 BR, 2BA apartment served our family well. Most of the things we wanted to do did require a taxi, but that was not a problem. We knew the front desk is not manned at all times, so we had no issue with that. The clerk was there most of the time and was helpful. The modern interior was beautifully done. I have never been in a hotel or apartment as clean as this one. Highly recommend for families. The only drawback is that our balcony overlooked a daycare, so we were awakened by children playing outside quite early.

Dear Suzanne H:

thanks for your comments. True, the location of castro Exclusive Sagrada Familia is great, you can walk to places like Sagrada Familia, modernist Sant Pau, La Pedrera, Casa Batllo ...
Then, other landmarks is better to take the subway or taxi com you say :)
Thanks also for pointing out the cleaning of apartments, if you come with us will see that even at that point have improved.
As for children: children are the essence of life !, hehe, just kidding, well, actually they are but sorry if I woke;)

We hope you return soon.

Having stayed at the Castro Exclusive for 8nights I can not say enough positive points about it.
Check in was easy , very polite staff.
Rooms are very well stocked with all you need , supermarket across the road for more supplies. Many good bars & restaurants within a few minutes walk, you can see the Sagrada Familia from some of the rooms , its 3minute walk away. Two metro stops within 5-10 minutes walk , so perfect as a base to explore the whole of Barcelona.
Thank you to all of the staff .

Room Tip: rooms facing inwards are very quiet

We (8 of us) stayed in 1.2 for 2 nights in May. The location next to SF was great and the city centre was easily accessible. The apartment was well appointed and clean. The complimentary toiletries were an added bonus! The Spa next door would put many in the UK to shame. Beds were comfortable and the apartment was a good size for 8 ladies for my laid back hen weekend.

Whilst we enjoyed the apartment, the jewel of our stay were the 2 ladies on Reception - they were so helpful and nothing was too much trouble! They are a credit to the company! From calling taxis to sorting out our TV they were amazing!!!!! Thank you for looking after us!

Room Tip: 1.2 was ideal for us, maybe a bit small if it were for couples. 3 couples would be perfect.

Very Good and big rooms! Also a nice view on Sagrada Familia. Only thing I would have done, is to exclude breakfast from the hotel, cheaper and better to buy at a local place or at the market on the other side of the street.

We stayed at Castro Exclusive Residences in May 2014 with our 2 young children. Our room was clean, spacious, well-equipped and just what we needed for our trip - enough rooms for the kids to not disturb each other at night, kitchen to keep our supplies (there is a supermarket just across the road) and easy to get into the centre of the city with the Metro just a few minutes walk away.

We were unable to make the most of the spa facilities as children are not allowed.

The staff on reception were very friendly and helpful and gave us helpful advice on local restaurants and transport.

Pro's
Good standard apartments in Barcelona are hard to find. The Castro apartments are a gem. They are roomy, clean, equipped to the highest standard and in a great location just 100m from Sagrada Familia. Transport is easy with a metro at Sagrada Familia and also the Hop on Hop off bus main stop is here. Directly opposite the apartments is a well stocked supermarket and of course there are bars and restaurants all around. The McDonalds and Kentucky are located next to Sagrada Familia and honestly they must be the best fast food outlets for quality, cleanliness and speed that I have seen around the world. Valerie in reception is excellent and is responsive to all requests for information etc. We didn't use the Spa or Gym but visited and it was excellent.

Cons
Well there are none really. The apartments have wooden floors and guests in the rooms above can make quite a lot of noise moving around. The management might consider leaving signs on the inside of the front doors asking occupiers to be considerate of other guests and not to wear stiletto's or other noisy footwear.

If you visit please say hello to Maria the Husky who sits in the morning on the bench outside the Innsbruck café opposite Castro.

Room Tip: Get the top floor.
