Property's Favourite Review
The goal of our 2-week independent trip to Spain in early May was to immerse ourselves in the local culture. So, staying in an apartment located in the core of the city was key. Eric Vökel Gran Vía Suites located on the Gran Via provided just that. Wonderful trees line the street, and we always felt safe walking at night. The Metro station was within metres outside the building. Tons of restaurants were within a couple blocks walk and a Condis grocery store was located to the right as you exited the building. We were able to walk to the Rambla area, the Montjuïc area where the Magic Fountain show takes place nightly, and we took the Metro to get to areas located further away. These well-outfitted apartment units have all the dishes/utensils, pots, pans, graters, colanders, cutting boards you will need. The bedroom was large and comfortable with ample closet space and a safe. The washer/dryer was in the storage closet with the water heater. The living room was a decent size and there was a table perfect for eating and to use for trip planning. At the front desk you can get coffee, soap pods, and other supplies. Staff was normally there to help if needed. The elevator was a little temperamental at times and usually someone had failed to close the door properly causing issues. It is not large either, so be prepared to take a couple of trips if you have tons of luggage. Personally, it added to the charm of the building. The one thing we will laugh at forever is that we did not realize the entire apartment had automated blackout blinds. The first night we could see from one window into another unit, and so we thought we might have to rig up something with newspaper and tape. I had brought a garbage bag from home and stuck it onto the window. The next day we came back, and I hit a couple of buttons on the bedroom wall to turn the light on, and suddenly, these amazing blinds engaged, and the room completely darkened. So, we immediately went to the living room and sure enough automated blinds there. We of course felt a tad foolish, but it all added to our “immersed” experience. The balcony which faced a large courtyard was the perfect place to eat breakfast and enjoy a nightly cocktail. Life in Barcelona happening right before our eyes. Seven wonderful nights and we would return in a heartbeat.

Fabulous apartment. Really big with 2 bedrooms, great bathroom and a huge kitchen. Had and oven, microwave, dishwasher and fridge/freezer. Lovely balcony with a great view. Front desk staff were so helpful and welcoming. Great location, a little far to walk to main square but the metro station is right outside, as well as several supermarkets and cafes. Will stay again.

We have a family of five and prefer to not get two hotel rooms, so Eric Vokel was a great find. We had an apartment on the top floor and to our surprise it had an amazing roof deck where we had breakfast every morning and drinks every evening. Modern but sparse design- not too too fancy but feels stylish And TONS of food for breakfast every day- a full bag/box of goodies. Was amazing the amount of food they give you EVERY single day of your stay!

We just returned from a 6 days stay at Eric Vokel Apartments in Gran Via Barcelona. Overall it was a very good stay. The location is not really close to anything, but conveniently located to everything. You are not more than a 30-40 mins walk away from sights, stores, restaurants and the beach and there is a subway station close by. Our place had a small kitchen, with a dishwasher and washer and dryer (in one appliance, so for North American standards it was rather small) a bedroom with a window to the street and a smaller bedroom with no windows, but a sliding door that still makes it feel light and airy as well as a sitting room with a dining table and a sofa. Furniture is basic, but really good enough. The staff was great, they were helpful when it came to suggesting sights or shows to visit, helped us find a post office and the best route, even found superglue for my daughter's toy. We had breakfast included and were able to pick it up every morning between 9 and 11am. It was either cereal and bread rolls with jam/butter or ham or pastries and bread rolls. We also got ample milk, juice and coffee pods. We have only some small complaints: the window in the bathroom does not open and the AC does not reach there, so it can get stuffy and we noticed some mold at the ceiling. probably due to a lack of ventilation. We also had to bring down our own garbage and recycling to bins across the street somewhere, which is fine if you have stuff to put away during the stay, but when leaving with lots of luggage it seems a strange things to do considering that the room is being cleaned and turned over the same day. We noticed they have locations in other European cities and will definitely consider staying again.

We were visiting Barcelona for a week so that my son could attend a nearby language school, so I wanted an apartment rather than a hotel in order to have more space to work during the days when he was at school. The Eric Vokel apartments fit the bill very well; they are close to the school and in a somewhat less touristy area of Barcelona, so it feels safe. The metro is very convenient and there is a supermarket just a few door down, as well as cafes and restaurants galore. These are proper apartments, not like some you will see which claim to be apartments but are basically just slightly larger hotel rooms with a hot plate and a fridge in! There were two bedrooms, a sitting area and a full size, well equipped kitchen as well as a bathroom and a utility room with a washer/drier. Like apartments in this part of Barcelona, only one room has an exterior window, the other bedroom faced into a (large) air shaft, which keeps it cooler and quieter. And also like apartments in this part of Barcelona, there is only one rather vintage elevator. Unfortunately, you are somewhat at the mercy of your neighbours and our final two nights were marred by an inconsiderate group who had the apartments next door and above us. They left the door of the elevator open, meaning it could not be called back to the ground floor and so walking up was the only option. They also ran their washing machine at 10pm and then all very noisily went out for dinner. I don't think there was any noise after midnight, which I realise by Spanish standards is not that late! Overall this was a great place to stay, although I would hesitate to stay there at the weekend. The aircon was very good, although a little patchy (the exterior-facing room quite a lot warmer than the interior-facing one). The apartment was properly equipped with an ironing board, a clothes drying rack and everything you could need. It definitely felt more authentic than staying in a hotel. The reception staff were excellent and very willing to help out, although be aware that most days of the week reception is only open during the day, c. 9-5. The somewhat rickety nature of the elevator is the reason I would not stay at this property with a wheelchair user, so that may be one thing to keep in mind. Overall I would recommend this place and would certainly consider an Eric Vokel apartment in one of the other cities where they offer them.

They were clearly in the middle of a renovation or construction.. there was paint and dust every where outside our room. At times, when I was going down the stairs, I was super careful not to fall because they had blankets on the stairs.. the elevator always gets stuck at a given floor and so I had to take the stairs frequently. The neighbors were super noisy and had a party till 4 am.. Also 2 bedroom and a couch with one bath.. I expected better for the exorbitant amount of money we spent for our stay

Dear guest, First of all, thank you for sharing your experience, although it would have been very nice to have been informed during your stay to try to do something to improve your stay. As you said, we are having renovations, some painting in order to renew and improve our apartments. This is very important to keep our apartments updated and in good conditions. It is true we only have one lift and 8 floors, which means the elevator is busy, specially, in the morning until midday. As far as your apartment is concerned, we inform you we have several kinds of apartments, and some of them are bigger for more people, therefore, there is the option to book another apartment that fits better. I really hope, in spite of this issue, that you ejoyed your holidays in Barcelona. We will be more than happy to welcome you back. Best regards. Sara Rodríguez Barcelona City Manager

We just cameback from our stayed in Barcelona at eric vokel ,unfurtunately with a bad taste of our 4 nights there. The next mornig after our arrival I went to the front desk to request assistance regarding 2 issues,simple ones,the dryer is not working and one of the bathroom sink were clogged. I went the next morning again,they never took seriously my request for service we left last saturday with the issue still pending in room 32 and with 15 pounds of laundry. One of the reason we took this hotel,apartment was the convinience of washer and dryer. The excuse was the maintenance guy never came,I talk to him directly the first morning for few minutes,he was with his uniform ststing hes the maintenance guy. They loe to me and they dont care.Ifelt like 55 years old stupid tourist trying to solve an issue for my family to have a confortable end of our 2 weeks vacation in Europe. Thank you for nothing,member services team at Barcelona sagrada familia.

Returned last night from a 4 night break. We had a lovely stay, apartment location good for getting about, especially as metro stop nearby. Clean & comfortable all you need & more. Because I booked direct we had a free breakfast every morning which you collect from reception. Nice touch 👍 and it contained all you needed to get you up & running, milk, juice, and variations of cereals, bread, jams and the like. Wouldn’t hesitate to return and thoroughly recommend.

We had a 3 night stay here and it was just what we wanted. Lovely apartment, 2 bedrooms and a great kitchen with dishwasher and washing machine if needed. Location was great. Metro station outside and not a massive walk to the ramblas area. Supermarket nearby and a small area of essentials in reception. Staff were friendly and welcoming. The lockers were also used due to a late flight back. Felt very safe and secure and would def return when we next visit.
