Historical Traveler Reviews Citadines Prestige Ramblas Barcelona
Great location, good facilities, a find!
Great hotel - we chose it after seeing other good reviews on site. Rooms have everything you need (including safe, iron and board, kitchen facilities) but no added extras (hence the lower price for apartment than posh hotel room).
Staff really helpful and pleasant and the location was just perfect - exactly half way down La Ramblas. Despite the location and the fact that there was a festival on, our room was really quiet.
One small point - if you book an apartment for two the bed is a fold down sofa bed - comfy enough but squeaks like mad. Not for light sleepers - everytime one of us turned over the other one woke up. As the week wore on and the sangria kicked in we slept better and better and this was less of an issue.
All in all - I'd recommend to anyone!
We have stayed at 3 Citadines in different cities now, and this one was the best. We got a studio room in the Vila de Madrid section in the back. The room was small but very bright, very well designed and functional, with full length French window opening onto the quiet residential Placa de la Vila de Madrid (complete with ancient Roman tombs!) Furniture included a very ingenious sofa bed (double size, very comfortable), table and 2 chairs, bedside tables, and good shelfs and storage. Kitchen had toaster, electric kettle, 2 ring electric stove, microwave with grill, dishwasher (love the compactness of it!), and adequate pots, crockery and cutlery. The only thing not provided that we really had to hunt down was paper coffee filters (found them at Dia supermercado).
We stayed Saturday to Saturday and the room was cleaned midway on Wednesday, which was perfect. Also if you run out of supplies (toilet paper, dishwasher powder etc) you can get more at the front desk.
Very good value, clean, and convenient. Highly recommended!
- location - right on la Rambla (noise, sights, crowd, tourists, shopping, street performers, etc), and near Pl de Catalunya, a major transportation hub, but quiet and residential in room
- free hot drinks throughout the day in restaurant overlooking la Rambla (after breakfast closes)
- excellent grocery shopping options - la Boqueria market (biggest market in Barcelona), El Corte de Ingles (really good supermarket in basement of the department store), Champion (across the street, not as good but closer and cheaper), Dia, and many smaller grocery stores.
- view from roof top
- free Internet (one PC so sometimes have to wait) and WiFi in business center.
- we arrived Sunday early morning and most food stores were closed the whole day, as were most good (non-touristy) restaurants. VIPS on Ramla de Catalunya was open with very limited grocery options. You may consider bringing something if you arrives on Sat night or Sunday.
- breakfast was not included, and rather expensive. We did not try it, so can't comment on quality.
- laundry room in basement is 8 Euro per load (wash and dry), which seemed steep but apparently is standard rate in Barcelona.
We stayed 3 nights, and found both the location and the Aparthotel excellent. This is situated near the top of the Ramblas, about 200m down from the main Catalun Square and hence easy to get to from the airport by train (it's the 4th stop). The Hotel is self catering hence you get a kettle, fridge, etc. but you can pay extra for the breakfast buffet if you want it. The breakfast room directly overlooks the Ramblas and gives an excellent view. The rooms are a good size, clean, and have air conditioning. Reception was very helpful offering maps and suggestions for Restuarants, etc. If you go to the top floor, there are sunbeds plus an excellent view of the surrounding area. We would stay here again and would recommend this to others.
in an excellent location on Las Ramblas, self catering apartment across the road from the most fantastic food market, great!
Have just got back from weekend in Barcelona, flew in from Blackpool to Girona on Ryanair's new scheduled flight. We travelled with friends but just 4 of us stayed in this apartment ( two adults & kids aged 13 & 11 )
We arrived very late and didn't really know what to expect but check-in was fast and the apartment was great.
We were located on the 6th Floor and the apt. had a large lounge with substancial pull out beds that would be fine for adults, TV & CD player, loads of storage, a really well equipped kitchen that had everything you could think of and good size bathroom.
The bedroom had a tiny balcony which overlooked the Ramblas. The room was very noisy at night - but you have to expect this if you choose to stay in this busy area. I looked out of the window at 5am on Sunday morning and it was as busy as I had seen it at 11am the day before! It only seemed to disturb me, husband and kids slept through it.
Our friends stayed in the annexe which was newer, a bit smaller but much quieter. Our kids did love the view though and watching the street acts getting ready in the morning was very entertaining.
There is a supermarket straight across the street which has everything you need, but if you are arriving late I would take a few basics with you.
The location of these apartments cannot be beaten and we had a great weekend!
2nd Review - Still as good as we remembered
This is our second visit to this hotel, and the second review. I have no hesitation in giving a maximum rating yet again. The staff are friendly and helpful, the location is perfect - being directly on the Ramblas near the Plaza Catalunya, and the rooms are clean and well equipped. There is a left luggage area which is very useful if you have a late flight, as you can leave your luggage here after you have checked out. And I will mention the roof terrace again - perfect for bringing a cup of coffee up and just drinking in the views of Barcelona.
We stayed at the Citadines June 2, 2004 for three nights - 11 People in two apartments and one studio. The location and quality of the hotel can not be matched in Barcelona. If you have kids like we do, you will love the extra space! Grocery store across the street and you are on the main tourist street to see the sights. Very happy with the apartment/hotel and the fast response to emails.
I stayed here October 2003 for my hen party. The rooms were clean and large enough for 5 girls in each room - although we were only there for 2 nights, think we may have had problems if we'd stayed longer! The sofa beds are comfortable and you get a kitchen, although I couldn't tell you what was in it as we weren't in the room very often! It is ideally located - for everything - would recommend to anyone.
Well worth it.....
I have just come back from a weeks stay there with 3 other friends and I must throughly commend the hotel. It has all of the amenities that you would find in your flat / apartment back home. There is a kitchen if you wish to do some cooking however, the only thing that we used was the microwave. The bathroom is fairly large, in fact it is extremely nice unlike alot of other hotels. Also, there is a roof top terrace on the ninth floor that offers you a wonderful view of la rambla and the rest of Barcelona. Overall, if you have the opportunity I would suggest a stay here because it is in the heart of everything and its affordable as well as very nice and spacious. A telling point as that we have already booked our second visit and we only came back last week!!
This is a great location in Barcelona. We were only there 1 night but this would be a great hotel if you were staying several days. The room has a small refridgerator, microwave and a stove. We were a bit worried about staying on Las Ramblas because of some reviews about the noise.
This turned out not to be a problem. Our room was clean and very quiet.
We would definately stay there again. Near the hotel is the Resturant Egipte, 79 Ramblas. Fantastic Food

... There are no rules or regulations for wearing or not wearing clothing so most people didn't bother. The sand is definitely not like Australia but I actually prefer it.

Many people dressed in orange t-shirts and a few wearing orange wigs were watching the large tv screens intently - it was the Netherlands vs Argentina semi-final game of the World Cup. There was a lot of excitement in the air with clearly Dutch fans the only ones in sight. We thought it would be a noisy night, until Argentina won - then it got ...

We walked about a mile and a half back to the hotel so we could get ready for our fun night of clubbing. Amanda and I brought disguises with us for our trip through Europe. She had a black bob cut wig and I had my Ric***********s wig and a Borat style moustache. While she was showering I found a pharmacy and bought her some lipstick... hopefully the last time I ...

He explained until we finally understood & ordered our meals. He then drove us home. We sat outside and ate our meals before going inside and going to bed. It was a good night from what I can ...
