What Past Guests Are Saying
Began well, but ended unpleasantly...
We stayed in the apartment for 1 month.
We chose them because they were the only ones who'd provide us baby-cot, high chair and baby bath.
When we arrived, the shower was broken, but that was fixed the next day.
However, what followed was everything but nice experience.
Firstly, the difference between the photos and the reality was enormous - the apartment was very worn out and much smaller than stated on the website (75 m2, but it was more like 60-65 m2). The floors were quite dirty, so the first thing was to clean them.
Additionally there were ants that also bit and were always in kitchen, on plates etc, also saw a couple of cockroaches.
Next, the a/C was leaking a lot, so that we'd need to dry the kitchen every morning. As it leaked from different spots, placing the bowls was just a wild guess. Apartime said it is normal and would not do anything. Unfortunately it was not possible to leave the windows open for a night beacuse of the street noise.
When we addressed the problems they aplogized, but would not offer any compensation for the inconveniences. They came up with ridicolous arguments such as the promotional price (which was not mentioned in the offer, also a promotional price would not mean that we have to put up with ants, cockroaches and malfunctioning a/C), that they are busy and have many apartments.
They ended up being really patronizing and called the inconveniences "minor issues" not worthy of any compensation. For me it was not really minor issue to have itchy bites on me for the most of the month and killing the ants every day really disgusted me.
For us just a ride to the airport would have been a gesture nice enough to express their concern and apology.
In the end it was their attitude that was really disappointing.
Central, comfortable apartment.
Nice and informative contact upon arrival.
Comfortable, fairly spacious apartment at a central but calm location.
Standard is above average with good kitchen and toilet facilities.
Best was standard and location.
Worse was lack of some cutlery.
Aficionado de Gamba
beautiful interior and location
This is a spacious apartment in El Raval. Despite the long walk-up (you will need the
exercise after all that tapas) this is a convenient place from which to base your stay.
You are 5 minutes from the legendary La Boqueria and you have a fully-equipped
kitchen to prepare the best that coastal Spain has to offer. What could be better?
Cautions: El Raval is a youthful neighborhood and so it is loud at night sometimes,
but the neighborhood is largely safe for travelers. There is no in-unit broadband so
depending on your Internet needs you may need to visit the cafe downstairs and
across the street for a cafe con leche. Lastly, Spain has wonderful coffees so it would
be nice if the apartment had a Bialetti or some other simple espresso maker.
Otherwise, great stay and service and I'd stay there again.
