i have just come back from 4 days in Barcelona, staying at the tryp Apolo. i read review after review and was quite dubious as to what i would find when i arrived. i shouldn't of been!!!!!!! to start with the reception staff were A1, very polite, spoke excellant english. informed us of the breakfast discount straight away (11 euro a day if booked then and there as apposed to 20 euro if you pay every morning) very very helpful.
Our room was clean tidy and more than adequate for 3 of us. the beds were made everyday and very comfortable. We did encounter noise from the nightclub which was right under our room but after asking to change rooms, within 10 minutes we had another room on the quieter side.
The bathroom was clean with fresh towels everyday and free complimentary products should you forget your own.
the location was fantastic, it is situated on a busy road but we didnt have any problem with traffic noise. La Rambla and the port were within a 10 minute stroll away. we even walked back up La Rambla with our cases to catch the airport bus.
we had tea in the hotel restaurant which was considerably cheaper than in the cafes around barcelona. ( 1.50 euro for tea and milk or 1.30 for coffee)
breakfast was a buffet style with lots of fresh fruit, cereals, toast and bread rolls, hot food. all friendly staff and clean.
how some people can give it a bad review is beyond me or they are used to top notch hotels of more than 5 star quality. i couldn't fault the Apolo on anything, fabulous value, brilliant location.
