    Apartamentos Descartes was two blocks from Barcelona's Muntaner Metro station with easy access to all parts of the city. The small kitchenette was well equipped, and the overall space was adequate. The receptionist was particularly friendly and helpful.

    Cleaning staff did not replace basic toiletries, including soap, on a daily basis.

    Untill now the poorest appartment i stayed in! No microwave also.

    The receptionist is very very kind and helpful. She gives you a lot of information about the city. The room is spacious and very complete. We used the kitchen several times to do some cooking. The location is fine, it's a little bit away from the centre so it's very quiet. On the other hand, the metro station is just around the corner and some of the sights like Park Guell, Casa Mila and Casa Batllo are within walking distance. On the last day we had a flight at nine in the vening. The receptionist let us have the apartment for the whole day, without having to pay extra! When we come back to Barcelona, we will surely stay at Apartamentos Descartes.

    Apartment was spacious and had all mod cons. Location was not bad for Fira and there were good local shops and restaurants.

    Walls are a bit thin but thankfully the neighbours during my stay were quiet.

    The facilities, set-up of the apartment, area of the city were all perfect for us (senior couple)

    I would have liked a Microwave Oven added

    Apartamentos have very good design inside. Very comfortable like at home. Well equipped (kitchen, TV, spaceful bathroom with bath). Location is good in quiet area.

    Lady at hotel desk was very friendly and cooperative

    Although we asked for a quiet room, we were first put right next to the elevator, which made sleeping hard; especially with thin walls and loud neighbors until 4am. Were transferred the next day, then it was fine. The kitchen equipment was fairly rudimentary.

    We were very happy with the owner/ receptionist Isabel, she was very welcoming -always with a smile and a nice chat- and gave us good tips for seeing the city. Also very nice appartment with kitchen and everything you need!

    We mostly like the receptionist Isabel; she was very kind and friendly and most important - helpful. The hotel (apartments) is two stations from Placa Catalunya (center) and is really nice for those who wants quiet nights and peace to rest.

    We choose this place mostly because of the location. It is not in the center of the City, but only a 5 min. Walk to Muntaner metro-station. From there you are on the Ramblas within 10 minutes. The apartment is cleaned every day and living room, kitchen and bedroom are separated by a sliding door. The lady on the reception speaks good English and can give you a lot of information about the city.

    It would be nice if there was also an electric water cooker available in the kitchen to make some tea or coffee in the morning.

    Although in a quiet residential area away from the tourist hotspots, Apartamentos Descartes are only 5 mins. Walk from a station (Muntaner) then 10 mins by train to Pl. Catalunya (buy a t-10 ticket, works out at 83c. a trip). Good supermarket 3 mins along the street. You can walk to Park Guell in about 45 mins. The lady in reception was extremely helpful, speaks excellent English (and French, Italian...), and kindly let us use the room on our last day as we had a late flight, so we could go off for the day without lugging bags around. The apartment was plenty big enough for 2, and nicely fitted out, with comfortable sofas and beds, and a bath as well as a shower. The aIr- conditioning was very welcome. The kitchen was small and you couldn't do more than basic cooking on the 2 hotplates, but it had all the things we needed. The towels were changed and rubbish cleared every day. There is a lift to all floors. Nb: Take your keys out with you at all times, as reception is not always staffed even at stated hours, and you'll need them to get in.

    At the price there was nothing to dislike. Maybe it's not in the centre, but it's only a short simple ride away, and it's quiet.
