My sister and I loved the studio apartment, it was clean and in very good condition. The kitchenette area is very convenient and doesn't take up too much space. We stayed in June and were thankful for the AC in the room. My only criticism would be that the room was not cleaned during our stay because we only stayed for 4 nights, which is somewhat understandable, but when we asked for more (clean) towels to be dropped off we were told no because the limit is two towels for two people.

The location can't be beat. Right in the Born neighborhood, a short walk to the beach or the Gothic quarter. Great restaurants just downstairs in the same building. It's a small set of rooms - the elevator opens right into the room. The room is nothing special. It was very small. There is a balcony, but it was small and was used to store cleaning supplies. You'd be able to walk out onto it without the cleaning supplies there, but, as is, there's not enough room to walk out onto it. There were ants in the room. Very little shower pressure. Shower door was missing it's handle. No toiletries. No safe. The room is only cleaned after your stay, not daily. Three stars seems like a stretch to me. Good wifi though. You have to go to a separate office to check in. It's not far, so no big deal, except the check-in communication was a little off. We were early, but were told the room would be ready at 1:30. We got our keys at 2:30 and walked about 10 minutes to the room. It was still being cleaned. We were told to come back at 3pm. Not a big deal, but a little poorly managed.

Lovely flat in the heart of the action

So close to Museu Picasso and Barcelonetta! Lively part of town late into the night. We had a great time but if you go to bed early, it might be too loud for your taste.

Not comfortable!

Posted 26-Jul-2015
The bed was extremely hard and the elevator that opens directly into the room had me nervous all the time! One time the cleaning staff opened the elevator onto us sleeping, we also walked in on them cleaning our room without notice. Check in is super tricky. You need to go to the main building for check in which wasn't specified. Therefore I carried my 23kg backpack between the apartment and the main office, which was about 500 metres either way! Check in staff were good, even watched our bags while we explored Barcelona before check in!

Dear customer. I am sorry to hear the bed did not fullfill your expectations. Sorry but its specified in expedia that the check in is done in the main reception in order to make it easier and give better service like free luggage storage until anytime, etc..reception is just 5 minutes from the apartment. In any case were are happy to hear that you were satisfied with the service and location. Looking forward to receive you in the near future again. AinB Apartments

No amenities, horrible staff, but nice rooms

Posted 15-Jul-2013
Pros: The rooms are nice, clean, full kitchens, and very clean.
Cons: Staff friendliness and efficiency. Don't say buffet breakfast when there is none. Internet needs to be fixed.
Location: Picasso Museum, Barcelona Cathedral, Beach, La Rambla. Very centrally located. Almost everything is within walking distance.
The room is a 10 minute walk from reception, and they do not help with carrying bags to your room, so you are on your own. The elevator opens directly into your bedroom, and on one occasion the cleaning staff came up from the elevator to find us half naked taking a nap in the middle of the day between seeing the sites (very uncomfortable). The hotel confirmation included buffet breakfast. There is no buffet breakfast, and we actually had to fight with them in order to get a voucher for a croissant and coffee from a café down the street. The confirmation listed free wireless internet. There was no internet working the entire time we were there. We complained on 3 different occasions about it and it was never fixed during our stay. We ended up spending 25 dollars to use our own internet access via our phones because this amenity was not available. There was also no phone in the rooms, so we spent another 25 bucks just making calls locally on our personal cell phones because there was no phone available there, any the staff was unwilling to make calls for us. Staff was slow, and did not take care of our issues or concerns.

Tiny room

Posted 27-Apr-2013 on Hotels
Most of the room was taken up with an elevator! The galley kitchen was about 30 cm wide, so almost impossible to use. Twin beds when a double was requested. Wifi didn't work. Only saving grace was the great location. Overall very poor.
