I stayed in their 2nd location (Concepcion), and I loved it! I found this place by chance, and the only reason I booked my stay with them is because they belong to the Majestic Hotel Group. I thought this is a sign of the quality and reliability. They were also considerably cheeper than Majestic Hotel itself, while the photos were showing the decent room space and great location. Well, I didn't expect much, though. So, let's talk. Pros: Location is great. Apartment is big, quiet, clean, has everything I need. Personnel was very friendly (even when they didn't speak English at all). Cons: I couldn't quite understand why I don't have any sheet below (next to) the blanket (probably, it was a simple mistake of the housekeeping). The decking of the terrace was worn out and desperately needs to be fixed. The curtains were dirty and not properly attached. The bathroom amenities were very basic and below the 4-star hotel level. Now, the verdict is still: I LOVED staying there (see pros). I will consider this place as my first choice, when I return to Barcelona. As a matter of fact, I don't think I want to stay anywhere else. Nothing beats the calmness and the quietness of your spacious room at Murmuri.

See the picture of the sign? If you follow the directions, you will end up at an abandoned building with no instruction as to how to get in the gate. Get rid of the sign. Replace it with a ring the bell sign.

Murmuri Recidence was perfect for us, a family of four (11 and 16). We arrived late to find everything dark and closed and we couldn't even get in to the residence. Turned out we had gotten the wrong info from our travel agency. Check-in (and out) is done at the Murmuri HOTEL just one street over. After a phone call, the night manager came running and sorted us out. He, and the rest of the staff was very friendly and helpful. The apartment we had was really nice - modern and very clean.Two bedrooms and two bathrooms. One queen-size bed and two single beds. The kitchen was very well stocked with everything you need, even a juice presser and a dish washer. The beds were comfortable and the air-conditioning was probably the quietest I have ever seen (heard). The only minus was the noise from the traffic from the nearby street. Even though the residence is on a quiet little side street, the traffic was sometimes disturbing, even with windows closed and double curtains drawn. But Barcelona is a big city of course, so that was expected. The location is perfect, just off Rambla Catalunya and two minutes walk from Gracia, with all the big brand stores and the Gaudí houses. Rambla Catalunya turns in to the famous La Rambla after a ten minute walk (but don't go there, it's a nasty tourist trap). All in all, I would really recommend Murmuri Recidence, and would stay there again if I come back to Barcelona.

We stayed for two night (myself, my husband and our 2 yr old). Great check in, Roberto was so friendly and took our luggage the short walk from the hotel over to the apartments for us. The apartment was neat and tidy, a little tired - we were under the impression we would have an en-suite and a bathroom but had just the bathroom to which both doors were broken so was a bit awkward using the toilet and being able to see the kitchen 🤦🏻‍♀️😂- we notified them upon checkout as didn’t want any hassle during our stay as was only 2 nights. Kitchen was well equipped, beds and bedding were comfortable, street was very quiet and pretty with orange trees lining it. Felt safe due to the key cards and coded access through the front gates and main door. Upon checkout they looked after our luggage and we had drinks in the bar which were great. Again staff sorted our transfer back to the airport and carried our bags which was so kind. Would love to rate 5 stars but the cleanliness or rather tiredness of the shower and bathroom held me back however we would definitely book to stay here again!

We enjoyed a very smooth and easy check-in. We were immediately accompanied to our residence which is about a two minute walk from the hotel on a quiet back street. The apartment is very well maintained, the bathrooms are large, the kitchen is complete and the service was impeccable. Unfortunately, we were out of the apartment 12 hours of the day and did not have use of the beautiful kitchen. We did manage to do a few laundries. If I am allowed one small complaint, I was disappointed that there were no USB outlets in the apartment The stuff from the hotel was extremely accommodating. I highly recommend this place for families or couples. Thank you very much for our wonderful holiday.

Located just a block from Passeig De Gracia, Murmuri Residence is just perfect for a stay with a family. Rather than cramped up in a hotel room, residences offer comfortable stays. The place is secured with coded entrance and cleaning is done every three days. Hotel staff was very courteous. Definitely check it out if travelling to Barcelona with kids...

Check in at the hotel was swift and professional. We were escorted to the apartment by the receptionist who showed us the location and how to gain access etc. Lovely quiet street in the heart of the city. Plenty of shops and eateries around. Booked a one bed apartment and we were upgraded to a two bed on arrival. The apartment was very clean, spacious and comfy. Some small maintenance issues but nothing major. Sofa needs a deep clean or replacing as it is stained from spillages. Well equipped large external terrace. No noise at all from within the apartment block. Two bathrooms which were both great. Plenty of hot water and towels. The bed was soft and really comfortable. Need additional pillows though as the ones provided are sparse. Tiny wall mounted tv in the main bedroom looks cheap. The kitchen comes with kettle and nespresso machine but nothing provided to make a drink with. Would have been nice to have a small welcome hospitality tray just while settling in. Check out is 11am and we had housekeeping knocking on our door as soon as it reached 11am - we were just about to leave and felt this was a little over zealous. We were only here for one night but I noticed that housekeeping clean every three days or you can pay an addition cost for daily cleaning. Didn’t eat at the hotel, but there is a room service menu in the apartment for collection or delivery. We also didn’t need anything during our stay so cannot comment on the efficiency of service apart from checkin which was good. Would recommend and would look to stay again.

Arriving on 19/09, unfortunately in the reception area of the hotel itself we got robbed. Our luggage was on the floor when someone (who was sitting in the reception area) crawled and robbed our hand luggage. This was a professional thief as no one noticed even the receptionist and hotel workers). This was an unfortunate incident and we were shocked when we noticed that our luggage was missing. The receptionist verified this on the camera and asked us to file a complaint at Barcelona's police station. We were terrified and felt that our whole holiday excitement was gone. With a baby, it was an absolute bad experience because at that point in a 5 star hotel, who thought such a thing will happen. Not to mention we had booked our time, tickets for attractions spread in the 3 days. The next day was lost in the Police station making complaint as directed by the hotel (as according to them the hotel insurance would reimburse us). After the complaint; the hotel manager (Gemma Ravasi) took the police statement and said they will try their best to compensate us. Gemma Ravasi told us to contact her when we are back to the UK. We have emailed her and chased her - no one actually got back, left voicemail, called her (on private telephone) hotel phone, no one got back to us. In short we are very disappointed how the General Manager, did not keep her promise and I strongly feel that anyone going to stay with them, don’t be fooled by their customer service and lack of safety at reception.

Dear Roopeshwaree, Please accept our apologies for receiving a late answer regarding the incident. We are still in communication with the insurance carrier; we are pending to receive a proper answer from them. As soon as we do receive more information from the insurance we will reach as you have been told. We are very sorry for what happened during your stay with us. The safety and security of our guests have been always our top priority. It saddens us to hear of such an unfortunate incident in the lobby of our property. This area of the hotel has public access for guests staying at the hotel or even visitors from the terrace, restaurant and bar. For this reason, that is a public space we always recommend to be careful with all the belongings. However, since this particular incident we have introduced a range of safety training programs for our staff and upgraded our security systems in the hotel. Once again we are very sorry and we hope to see you back to give you our best service. Kind regards. Pol Vidal Front Desk Manager

We had two, two bedroom apartments and it was a great location. Traveling with our young adult/teenage children so we really wanted room to spread out. We did feel a bit removed from the hotel (services) itself, since it was a block away. We had to walk down to get extra bottled water, as it wasn't provided. And towels. One night we asked for extra pillows and they said they didn't have any, but would see if they could find any. It wasn't until the next day that they provided a couple. But, overall, a nice place.
