A Good Option when staying in Barcelona”
My husband and I very much liked our stay at Charmsuites Paralel Apartments for 3 nights prior to a cruise. The location was fantastic and the facilities met all of our needs. There was a large balcony (but no chairs for it) fridge, washer, toaster, coffee maker, stove and sufficient dishes and cutlery. This could be made even more enjoyable if the apartment had a few minor upgrades. There were no toiletries available, no towel bars, shower head needs replacement, no face cloths or dish towel (I brought my own). The two elevators were always available and fast. The staff was friendly and helpful. We would stay here again for the size of apartment, amenities, price and location.
Clean and Comfortable”
We loved this apartment. Yes its true that there is no housekeeping and no change of towels daily because this is not a hotel. This is a very convenient accomodation in Barcelona for our family, it has a kitchen, a laundry, iron, balcony where you can dry your clothes, internet. The elevator is very small but its okay, it does its job. Yes you have to take out your trash and that wasnt a problem for us. There's no restaurant in this apartment but there are restaurants outside, around the area. I would love to go back to Charmsuites. We love Barcelona.
Mark was great! Great emailer before check in and great check in and check out host. Great location mostly because it's on same block of a metro stop. It's a little far from the marina and Las Ramblas but it's an enjoyable walk through the city. If you're going to the beach, walk up the hill and take the scenic cable car ($11 +/- one way) to Sant Sebastia Beach. Be very careful for purse snatchers walking up the hill to the cable car - they tried but didn't succeed. We enjoyed the street facing room but definitely not soundproof rooms as advertised. Free wifi but very very weak on our third floor room, only available in apartment foyer and maybe in living room if the front door was open and never strong enough signal to get it in the bedrooms but the "Pan" sandwich restaurant next door had great wifi service at their tables (and good food). I think because this is an apartment and not a hotel that only one hand and shower towel per bed is provided but no soap but there's a grocery store just across the street. The items in this review aren't negative (except wifi), they are noted for your heads up information because we would stay here again. Charmsuites, if you read this, because all you beds are twins (even in the master suite) you should purchase and make available the item that straps two twin beds together to make a king sized bed for the couples used to sleeping on the same bed. Thank you for adding to our great vacation!
If I'm in Barcelona I'm Staying at Charmsuites”
Second time in Barcelona and my second time staying at Chramsuites. The location is great, 20 minutes from the airport, close to the Ramblas, lots of great restaurants also within walking distance. The apartments are big, nicely laid out & very clean. The 2 guys who run the place are awesome. Very easy to work with and super helpful if you have any questions. I really don't have any complaints. Next time I'm in Barcelona I'll be staying at Charmsuites again.
Fantastic Find in Perfect Location”
We were in apartment 3 floor 1 and I was amazed by the apartment given its central city location. The apartment was spacious with open plan lounge, dining table and kitchen area. The bedroom was large and both the bedroom and lounge opened out on to a huge terrace which also had sun loungers and dining table and chairs. I believe it may be the biggest terrace I've ever seen for one apartment. It also caught the sun which in the city centre is a bonus. Staff were friendly and helpful and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again when in Barcelona
Great location and super helpful staff”
The apartment suited us well. It is aged & the equipments & facilities are old. Door of our washing machine needed more effort to open or close. But that's really the only cons. It's large, with enough space for all of us, especially with two bathrooms/toilets. Kitchen has full facility. Aircon works well & we get Disney TV with English on the flatscreen TV, keepingg the kids busy. There's a lift so no stairs to climb & our apartment is quiet as it's double glazed & not facing the road. But the most important pros are the proximity to Parallel Subway Station & near to food outlets. It's directly above the station & Parallel is about 4 stops from Barcelona Sants (High speed AVE train station) & you can use the subway to most tourist attractions (eg Sagrada Familia or the station with the Park Gueil bus), Casa Battlo or the station for Montserrat train. Subway, McD, Pans & Co, 365cafe & many tapas bars are close by. Checking in was a breeze as well (reception was open on our arrival).
Trip to watch the Football”
As usual, great stay at Charmsuites and thanks to Erik and Mark for their hospitality and preparing everything ready for an easy check in. Great area for some local bars and food and close to the Metro for easy transportation around the City.
Great location to be at Barcelona”
CharmSuites is a very good option to stay. Very centrally located with extremely easy access to the Metro station. La Rambla is very close by too. Eric who manages the facility is exceedingly helpful and a great support.
Great Place ”
I can’t say enough good things about this place. The location was perfect for me. Close walking distance to everything I wanted to see. The price was very reasonable. The apt was very nicely furnished, comfortable and very quite. The two gentlemen I dealt with at the front desk were both very nice and very helpful. I look forward to staying here again and I highly recommend it to anyone coming to Barcelona
Easy accessible, very clean, large apartment near underground”
This is a very huge apartment with the following:- 1. a kitchen, well equipped with fridge, stove, microwave, boiler, eating utensils 2. a huge living room with sofa and TV 3. a balcony with city view (extremely chill) 4. two bathrooms with stable hot water supply and extremely clean 5. two bedrooms The apartment is very close to the underground and the air-conditioning system works very well. We never feels hot during the summer when staying in the apartment. In addition, there is a great spanish restaurant opposite to the apartment.
Great value and very nice and big”
We rented a two bedroom apartment. It was very spacious and the beds were comfortable. The price was good. The metro stop was less than one block away and went to many major tourist stops without a transfer. The reception desk is not always attended so make arrangements ahead of time if you will be checking in early or late. They were willing to store our luggage in a locked room since we arrived at 9:00 am. You need to bring all your own bath products, coffee, laundry soap, everything. Grocery and many places to eat very close.
The location is convenient as the Metro is just door step away. There are a lot of eateries nearby and there's also a supermarket where you can get your water and chips conveniently. The apartment is clean and comfortable. There are a few areas that can be improved. First the bathroom door cannot really be opened to the max as it got stuck at the bottom. There is no amenities in the toilet except for towels. Thank God we brought our shampoo and shower gel. The check in was Long. As we arrived after 9pm, we had to pay additional €20 for the late check in. We had to call half an hour earlier to inform the apartment that we had arrived. When we reached the apartment, we waited for 10 minutes before we called again. The person whom we spoke to told us that the person who would check us in would arrive soon. But it was another 10 min wait. When he arrived and we got into the lift lobby, he told us he had to go get his hp cable as his hp was running out of batt and all check in info was in his hp. That was another 5 min wait. In the midst of checking us in, he answered 2 business calls and we had to wait again. In the end, we only checked into our apartment an hour later. The apartment could explore a more efficient way of checking in instead. For this reason, I would not want to stay in this apartment again if I arrived in Barcelona after 9pm again in the future.
Great apartment ”
We stayed at this apartment with a couple and 2 children. A wonderful location. Excellent cost performance. There were lots of supermarkets and restaurants around and we were satisfied. The office staff is also friendly and comfortable. The room was comfortable and it was a wonderful flat. The only bad thing is that the hot water in the shower has become cold water on the way. This apartment you'd like to recommend to all guests. We will definitely return here.
Very central and convenient location. Spacious apartment with everything you would need”
My daughter forgot her phone in the apartment after we locked the apartment door and left the keys inside on the morning of our checkout. We phoned the number on the card and explained to the gentleman our problem and that we had an early flight to catch also.He was so helpful....although he would have only started work about an hour later,he had come to us in about 10 minutes time.Much appreciated and thank you so much.Really impressed by your service from check in to the day we left.
This was a nice place but the only issues we had was there was not hand soap in the bathrooms, not something i usually pack with me when going on holiday. Also the shower head doesn't stay on the holder so have to hold or drape over the control when not in use. Otherwise the place was nice, the beds comfortable, spacious and it has AC which was very much needed with the heat on the days we went. The apartment has cutlary, A fridge/freezer, iron and a washing machine, we didn't use the washing machine/iron but everything else was good. P. S. There was a balcony but as we were out most the day we didn't actually use it. All in all would stay again, might ask if they can fix the shower head mount.
4 day stay”
Excellent apartment. Eric at reception was very helpful. In the heart of the city with all amenities near by. Metro, restaurants, and grocery store. Walkable to port vell and gothic quarter via Las Ramblas. Apt was super clean and very spacious. Only 2 minor complaints. Only one small garbage can in kitchen and second bathroom shower head was rotating and spraying everywhere when on. Fixable with another ecrew put in. All in all, we loved the place and would def stay again and highly recommend it!
Excellent apartment in excellent location ”
Very pleasant apartment. Very good staff. Very conveniently located accessible from a main road. Very close to a metro station. Only got 50 euro deposit. No other charges. Spacious and bright apartment. Stayed with wife and two kids. Will undoubtedly recommend to anyone
The apartment is newly renovated, spacious and clean, airy and nice. We love it. The side away from the road offers peace and quiet evenings and the place is very accessible to the transept network as well as for walking to Las Ramblas. There are plenty of restaurants behind the building. Be sure to contact the front desk re your arrival since it is not always manned but the person can easily be contacted and would arrive in less than 5 minutes.
Large apartments and great location”
We liked the large and light rooms, Very good location and friendly staff. We will rent again next Barcelona vacation.
Had a great stay here with four friends, location was just a few minutes walk to la Rambla, used public transport to the beach, really nice inside apartment, negative was that we paid the exchange rate on the day we were due to pay so actually ended up paying £60 more between the group then if we had been able to pay upfront.
