Conviently Located HotelPosted Dec 29, 2013
Pros: Convenience, area of apartment/rooms, location close to many sites in Barcelona, quiet, wifi worked great and was fast, roomy for 4 persons.
Cons: The personnel should check on the hotel at least once a day for unpleasant odors and to make sure all is OK. The odor persisted for 4 or 5 days.
Location: We wlaked to Las Ramblas, Guell Park, La Familia Sagrada, and past many of Gaudi"s buildings.
The Gran De Gracia Hotel is located within walking distance (30 minutes) of many sites to see in Barcelona and within 3 minutes of the metro. I was able to take train and subway and then walk to hotel from airport. The only negative was the odor in the hallway when arriving at the hotel. It was removed eventually but it wasn't a pleasant greeting when arriving each time. The rooms are large enough to give a spacious feeling and the heating/air conditioning is excellent. The 4 of us had plenty of space in the hotel. There is a living/dining/sleeping room with adjacent kitchen with a bathroom and bedroom off the internal hallway. Another vanity is located in the hallway. The kitchen is full equipped with a range and oven, microwave, toaster, large refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher and all the pots, pans and utensils. There is a bakery next to the hotel and food markets within 5 minutes and more within 10 minutes walk from the hotel. The coach is actually two single beds with a cover. The beds were comfortable. The bedroom had a large closet plus another bureau and personal safe. There were televisions in the bedroom and living room if there was time to watch. There is a clothes washer with drying rack outside on the balcony. The staff was helpful and accomodating. I would stay here again.

Nice apartmentPosted Nov 2, 2013 on Hotels.com
Location was very noisy at night. Apartment was lovely but the cleaning standards were not very good.

No physical presence of reception in the apartmentPosted Aug 5, 2013 on Hotels.com
1. There is no receptionist stationed in the apartment. This caused a lot of issues to us as listed and mentioned below. 2. The office of the reception opens only from 10am which is already very late. 3. On the first day, the check-in time became 2.30pm instead of 2pm which was the agreement. 4. I understand that the cleaning of the floor is only once during the stay but it was not clean when we arrived in the first day. 5. It was not a nice experience asking the cleaner to clean the floor. At first she refused and said no. Then after my wife talked to Reception and then Reception talked to the cleaner, she did it grudgingly and kept on talking while banging things to show her disgust. It was a blatant display of rude behaviour to us, the guests. 6. The Wifi only worked on the first day of our stay and it didn't work properly anymore after that. Aside from the things that can be improved, we found the apartment to be newly built, in a nice quiet location and close to the Metro. The Receptionists and Assistant Manager were very helpful, nice and tried to make our stay pleasant.

Loft Apartments Gran de GraciaPosted Feb 19, 2013
Location: best location- metro close by, walking distance to everything including groceries post office pharmacy etc
The apartment was great - only the pick up of keys at another apartment was inconvenient. After 22 hours travel the last thing you want to do is go to a different destination to pick up keys then find your apartment.

Great Apartment, Great DealPosted Jan 28, 2013 on Hotels.com
My three friends and I stayed here on a short trip to Barcelona, and had a wonderful time. The building was quiet, clean, and convenient to the subway and numerous fun restaurants and bars. We were very impressed with the size of the apartment, the relatively low price, and the amenities. I would definitely stay here again.
Loved it -- until ...Posted Dec 10, 2012 on Hotels.com
We were thrilled when we first walked into this lovely apartment -- after 3 weeks of washing clothes in hotel sinks, a washer! And a dishwasher! And all those rooms and space!! Wow, we were in love with it ... until Friday night, when a gang of about 2 dozen decided to rent the apartment above us for a loud party that ran from 8pm to 3am. Stomping, yelling, loud "music" etc. until 3am when most of them departed and some moron started dragging furniture around ... solid table legs on tile floors ... like fingernails on chalkboards only much louder. Needless to say, we didn't get much sleep. On Saturday night, the same garbage started again. I had a talk with the renters and then called the manager. The party crowd decided to take the noise elsewhere but a subset of them returned after midnight and woke us up again. Thank God we checked out that day. We probably wouldn't rent this place again -- I have to believe that an on-site manager would not let this kind of garbage occur.

ExcellentPosted Nov 16, 2012 on Hotels.com
Really lovely apartment which is very well equipped with cooker, dishwasher, oven and hob, and washing machine. It is stylishly decorated and very clean. I would highly recommend this apartment. It is situated in a quiet location although it is quite a walk to la Rambla. However, we were quite happy to walk and take in the sights en route.
