Immaculate, ideally located .

Our experience of Eric Vökel Boutique Apartments Gran Vía Suites was on the whole, very pleasant. We arrived slightly early for check-in, as we happened upon the place while we were getting our bearings, and were told we would have to wait until the stated check-in time. This was not a problem although when we returned a good 45 mins after we were told to come back the room was still not ready and we had to wait around a bit. The staff were helpful and gave us information on nearby supermarkets and etc, and there were complimentary items such as soaps, dishwasher and washing machine detergent and tea and coffee by reception. The apartment itself looked to be newly refurbished, all the appliances were new and everything was spotless. There was a good selection of utensils and pots and pans etc in the kitchen, and we liked the electric blackout blinds in the living area and bedroom. The linens were clean and the apartment was cleaned once during our stay. We had air conditioning which was welcome on a few of the days. The building was on a main road with a metro station right outside, or if you wanted to you could walk to La Rambla in about 25 minutes. There were several supermarkets nearby, each a few blocks away in different directions. Would definitely stay here again if in Barcelona.
