Service was excellent, well designed and spotlessly clean rooms, good for short or long stay and extremely courteous staff.
The wifi and internet services need to be improved.
Ako suites is a new hotel decorated nicely. The room was spacious. The location was perfect and also what made a huge difference was the hospitality of the staff. Always willing to help us and also to recommend what places to visit and where to eat.
The view from our room wasn't nice so we had our curtains closed. It doesn't have restaurant for breakfast but the do provide you the service of having it in your room with an additional cost.
Extremely welcoming and helpfull staff at reception. Room was spacious. It is one of the quietest rooms I've ever stayed in! Location was relatively central.
I think that a kettle, tea, coffee, milk and sugar should be provided as standard vs. having to request them.
very nice apartment,very helpful staff just excellent, fair price
only positive remarks
Helpful check in staff staff. Good local knowledge
Heavy rain on Tues night, roof leaked!!! Dripping water kept us awake. Staff didn't seem to be suprised. We arrived at 6pm on Sunday, checked in, went to room, room was being cleaned, thought water on floor was part of cleaning, had to go back down to reception and wait for maid to finish. Glad it didn't rain before Tue!!!!!!!!!!!!! In many ways hotel was ok but will not recommend hotel with leaky roof.
Excellent location, just few steps from city centre, but also not noisy street so its good sleeping. Hotel staff are very friendly and helpful, they give us city maps at check-in, and explane all directions. Rooms are small but clean, bads are confortable, dishes are clean and tidy.
The staff were wonderful , always willing to help with directions or needs for the room. Very polite and caring people
The location and the quality of the rooms and friendly & helpfull staff.
A new hotel (sep 2012), very beautiful hi-tech design, looks expansive. The staff were very kind and helpful. It was a pleasure being in this hotel.
Toilete and shower are both transparent! It looks good but it's uncomftable to sit on toilets when your mate can see you. I expected the kitchen to had more tools and maybe even basic materials like salt and oil.
The location is convenient as it's 5-minute walk from the nearest subway station and where i got down from the airport shuttle bus, 10~15 from catalunya plaza. Everything in the hotel is new and well-designed. The staff are very helpful.
The shower definitely needs improvement since there's no place to put the shower gem. The beds are small even for Asians so I'm not sure how European tourist can put up with the beds. According to Booked.net, the entire apartment is 45m2, but I serious doubt that.
location, clean, friendly
do not like the design of glass walls for the bathroom.....from the bedroom you can hear and see everything... impossible to shower without waking up anybody in the bedrrom televisions very difficult to operate to change the soundtrack language, even the staff didn't know how to do it, the only 2 channels in english (there is no cnn or bbc world news) are cnbc business and one other even worse.
The apartment is well designed, though not exactly spacious. The facilities for self catering are minimal but in fairness we did not try to cook anything. OK for couples but a little intimate for singles planning to share cost. I could propably have found equally comfortable 4* hotel accommodation in a similar location for less money. There is always someone on reception but they do not do much other than say hello.
Although described as an apartment, is little more than a hotel room with a galley kitchen and some clever partitions that separate the sitting area from the sleeping area and bathroon. Very comtemporary but a bit expensive for what you get over a standard 4* hotel room.
The staffs are very friendly
The worst thing in this hotel is the bathroom in the center of the room and it is made from glasses only
Staff were amazingling helpful, esp on the front desk. The location was perfect to all the bars and clubs I wanted to go to,and a short walk to the major shopping strip and sightseeing. Room was very modern and clean. Very quiet room even though it faced the main street due to double glazing. Free WiFi a bonus.
There was no mirror.. Just the one above the bathroom sink, which is at a great height, but nothing to see full length when checking out if the outfits working! Also it seems a 3rd bed is never a bed its a roll out which was quiet uncomfortable.
This is truly a 4 star appartment hotel. Very modern and clean. Location is great - just 5 minutes walk to Universitat merto station, or as a start of city sightseeing. Aiconditioned studion, well equipped kitchenette and nice TVs. Nothing to complain really. Oh and there is WiFi all around the rooms and lobby free of charge (well at least no extra charge).
Unfortunatelly the parking in Barcelona is a nightmare, both in finding one or prices. We were offered a nearby parking at 25 euros per night - not bad, but at a longer stay it builds your bill nicely.
