Very nice apartments in a good location..
Posted Feb 22, 2017
Location - the Atenea Calabria Apartaments are in a good location between the city centre (20 minute walk) and close to Placa d'Espanya and Placa de Sants where the buses/trains to/from the airport stop. There is a metro station a few minutes walk from the apartments. Using a T-10 ticket it was easy to get around the city and to/from the airport.
Apartments - the official website has lots of good information and photos in various languages. All the apartments are about the same size, most with an open-plan lounge/bedroom, kitchenette, bathroom and a small balcony. The rooms at the front face the street and the rooms at the rear face the inner square and the rear of the other buildings so not that attractive, but quieter. We requested and got quiet room on an upper floor (605) which was ideal for us.
Room facilities - the beds were comfortable, nice functional furniture (mostly IKEA), a kitchenette which meant we could have breakfast and meals in our room if we wished. On arrival there is complimentary shampoo, soap, washing up liquid, sponge and a few coffee pods for the Tassimo coffee machine. More coffee pods can be purchased from the reception or the large supermarket next door. The room is cleaned daily, beds made, towels changed and shampoo/soap/toilet rolls topped-up as necessary. Free room safe and free WiFi in the room was good. There is heating/air con.
Staff - we found them friendly and helpful. Most spoke good English.
We would definitely stay there again!
