“Fabulous! Great Location!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2011

We stayed for 3 days at the end of September 2011. This was a great location if you want to be in the center of Barcelona. Literally right off La Ramblas. The coffee maker in the apt is not like in the US. The lady who met us and gave us our keys, came up to the apt and showed me how to work it! Her name was Pippa. So nice! Beds were comfy, even the couch/Murphy bed was comfortable. Kitchen was well equipped. Bathroom very modern with nice fixtures. I will stay here everytime I come to Barcelona. Perfect and lovely location

We had booked a one bedroom apartment but were pleasantly surprised to end up with a 2 bedroom. Plenty of room four our 6 day stay. Location is two block of Placa Catalunya giving you access to all public transport. Walking distance to everything in the old city.

Being that it is an apartment, don't expect hotel services. The apartment is not cleaned and there is no linen service. There is no concierge and staff availability is limited but having someone on site at all is unique for an apartment rental.

We were quite pleased with our visit to Barcelona and this apartment made much of that possible.

Room Tip: We stayed in apartment 3A which has two bedrooms -- one with a king bed and another with two twins p...

Close to Plaza de Cataluyn and the Rambla. Nice Appartment with full kitchen if you want to cook for yourself. However we didn´t use it at all, but ate out at all the nice restaurants in Barcelona.

Since it is an Appartment, there is very little service, but they are very helpfull and friendly if you need any kind of helf.

The only downside, was that there sometimes was a funne smell, when we returned to the Appartment. Perhaps the restroom, but we never fund out. It didn´t bother us however, since it dissapered very quickly again.

The Amister Apartments is an excellent choice for a Barcelona visit. The rooms are quite spacious, clean, include a full kitchen with refrigerator and most importantly a washer and dryer which is indispensable halfway through a Spain visit. We comfortably accommodated a family of four. The staff was friendly and helpful and pointed us to a couple of restaurants one of which might have been the best meal we had in Spain and amazingly the most reasonable. The Apartments are a block away from Las Ramblas and only a couple of blocks away from the beginning of the upscale shopping district in Madrid. They are also a block away from a major Metro station but as other writers have noted beware of pickpockets and purse snatchers in Barcelona. (As of July 2011 the economic situation in Spain makes personal security an important consideration. This is unfortunate since the vibe in Barcelona is so cool and having to be on guard almost continuously detracts somewhat from the experience. Not enough to recommend missing the visit but you do need to stay aware. Indeed in retrospect we may have used taxis more heavily. Although more expensive the Metro seemed a little too edgy for the average American to deal with. Sort of like New York back in the late 80s.) Notwithstanding, we recommend the Amister Apartments and would return to them if a future trip has Barcelona on our itinerary.

Stayed at the Amister apartments for 4 nights in august 2011. We were 2 parents and 3 big children (16, 19 and 21). For my family the apartment was perfect. It was just one big room with a wall between a double bed and 3 sofa-beds - so You of course have be friends! The apartment was clean. There was a small kitchen and a washing machine. The aircondition was necessary and worked perfect.

The best of it is the location! The street is next to the Plaza Catalunya - Just some hundred meters from the top of La Rambla with all the buses and metro very close.

If we come back to Barcelona we will surely stay in a place like this!
