“Dark, noisy, small, not so clean”
Reviewed 14 March 2014

Dark : windows are in fact opening on an ugly view of next building.
Noisy : you can hear people talking in the appartments around you, you can even wake up with their clock !
Small : one room with 2 beds is in fact built around the beds ;-) zero space between the beds.
In the bathroom you can be seated on the toilets while washing your feet in the shower and brushing your teeth.
Musty smell in the kitchen will remain my favourite part, with the coakroaches dancing on your food...
Yes you're living right next to the Sagrada Familia, but this is not enough to compensate the bad sides.
Avoid it !

Room Tip: Based on the comment It seems the appartments on the street are better than the ones inside the buid...

Reviewed 24 July 2013

The best thing about the apartment was Anna the manager, she was most helpful, the shower nozzle broke on the first night we left her a text message and she arrived at 10pm with a replacement ( not sure if this is a frequent problem as a cheap fittings ) . we are 2 adults with 1 child and choose an apartment at the back of the building as we visited Barca earlier this year and have just had a week in the costa Brava so wanted to keep the cost down .. The apartment was clean, the furniture was all from Ikea so no complaints. The bathroom was so small that my husband had to dry off in the lounge after a shower ! not the bedroom as their were no curtains and we were overlooked by several apartment blocks. The real problem is the lack of sound proofing, you can here every noise from the next door apartment, we were kept awake until 3 am on the first night which was a nightmare as we had been up early that morning traveling.. The external doors were so heavy that every time somebody entered the building or apartment there were Hugh clashes. The following nights I went to bed with the Spanish TV on to try and drown out the noise. Location is fine right next to the Sagarda familia however you are a fair distance from all the other sights ie Ramblas - Beach, Gaudi houses and old town. I would not recommend this apartment as it has no sound proofing and the interior of the apartments are in need of updating

Room Tip: We stayed in the back apartments as cheaper and we thought it would be quieter - however the outlook...

Reviewed 4 July 2013 via mobile

Stayed here for three nights as a family of five in a 2 bedroom apartment while in Barcelona. This place is wise to choose as it is very central, being only a minute walk from the sagrada familia cathedral, metro station and plenty of restaurants along the street.
The accomodation is very good considering that you are in the city centre, we were provided with a fridge, cooker, spacious living area and air conditioning (thank god!). Most of the apartments have got balconies overlooking the street, we were placed at the very top which was four stories high and you do feel the height on the balcony. I'd highly suggest that if you we're planning to stay with young children to request a lower down apartment.
Traffic noise from the street isn't so bad as the street has been pedestrianised and there are many restaurants below.
I'd highly recommend this place if you are looking for affordable acommodation in the Heart of Barcelona.
