“Amazing what you get for your money!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014 via mobile

I visited Barcelona with my partner in October 2013 and we stayed in marina apartments for 4 nights. Finding the apartments is easy as it's less than a five minute walk from the station at the Sagrada familia. On arrival check in was quick and easy!

When we were shown to our apartment we couldn't believe our luck. Our apartment had two rooms that could sleep 5+ people although there were only two of us, and there was also a dining area, separate bathroom from the ensuite, kitchen, balcony and living room. Safe to say the apartments are very spacious and very modern and well kept.

We had great nights sleep as there was no noise disruption in the apartment despite being situated on a main road!

This location is perfect for a jam packed city break with a metro station less than 5 minutes away, top tourist sites a walk away, a supermarket next door, pubs and restaurants nearby... Couldn't recommend a stay here more!

Positives: Good value. Close to Metro and La Sagrada Familia. Clean. AC works well. Quiet if apartment faces inner court.
Negative: far from the center of Barcelona, approximately 15 minutes on Metro or about 45-50 minutes of fast walk.

Why did I rate this apartment at only 2 stars: the administration charges about EUR 16 for a week of WiFi Internet access. There is only one corner of the apartment when we were able to get one bar of WiFi reception. It was so fragile that it was coming down to no reception at all every 30 seconds. We made requests to the administration every morning for 7 days to no avail. One time we were even told that "everyone else has no problems with WiFi. It seems like your problem".
WiFi Access Points are commodity this days. When extra money is being charged for WiFi access, the responsible party has to make sure that there is enough APs to provide the service.

We booked 2 triple apartments in the Marine as part of a large group coming to Barca for a birthday celebration.

Top marks to this company. Their booking process was efficient, the reception staff were helpful and friendly. The apartment are huge and have everything you need. Top marks for value and location.

I would recommend them to anyone, I will be back some day.

Room Tip: Choose room up high with street church view...lovely.

Nice clean apartments close to Sagrada Familia. Our apartment had a kitchen, living/dining room, two bedrooms (one single bed, one double bed) and a bathroom. The bathroom was a bit cramped though.

The service (at reception) was good. Wifi internet is available, but expensive (4.40 Euro per day).

I stayed on the fifth floor with a balcony. So I could sit with a glass of wine and watch the church every night.

The location is excellent. You can walk to most sights and metro stations. There is a nice supermarket a block away which sells ready-made food and wine/beer. If you take streets about one or two streets off from the main touristic streets, you can see the cute little cafes and bars locals go to.

Somehow I got a two room unit with a balcony. The master bedroom, a single room, a well equipped kitchen, a bathroom with a tub and living room are spacious and clean. This place is perfect for a family with children. They can buy food and cook simple meals.

The staff jus gives you a key.You cannot expect more than that. They also take care of the garage so most of times they are busy tending the garage customers.

My sony tablet and samsung galaxy didn't pick the wifi signal up here. Otherwise, this place was GREAT.

Amazing location, just round the corner from the Sagrada Familia and easily connected to other attractions by metro or walking.
Spacious apartment, well-equipped, we managed to cook pasta and Carbonara sauce on our second night :-).
We only stayed for 2 nights but I think this is a perfect choice for longer stays since it has all you need for it, like a washing machine and place to dry your clothes. It's safe and it's clean!
The staff that helped us with the check-in was very nice and check-out was easy as well. It's 24hrs reception since they also have a parking business.
The only thing was that Wi-Fi is not included in the price (we knew this before booking) and that can be inconvenient at times if you need to check e-mails or look for touristic info during your stay.

The location was perfect and the rooms were beautifully modern. The terrace facing the inner courtyard wasn't much to look at but because we were in a great location we walked everywhere. The rooms were quiet and beds were comfortable. The staff was friendly and incredibly helpful. There was a grocery store and pharmacy on the same block and there were too many restaurant options from which to choose. Having a kitchen, especially at the end of our trip, was a nice option for when we tired of restaurants. We would stay here again without hesitation!
