"always a good stay!"
04/12/14 maris09 New York City, New York
the apartment I had was great! 6b! love the barri! very Catalan! but still very close to the center! always great to a have washer, dryer and the back bedroom super quiet! and being on the top floor even the back bedroom had a view with tons of light and a small terrace! one negative was I had someone banging on my door at 4a asking to be let in! possibly a drunk tourist who didn't know what floor he was on? they all look the same! no fault of aspacios though! and they did answer in the early morning when i called to complain! all in all no harm done but still a bizarre experience! rented with aspacios many times and I rent again!
"Great place to stay"

We stayed at the apartment for two weeks instead of a hotel room. Much more spacious and comfortable. Everything you needed was provided including maid service 5 days a week. Good central location. Diego was so helpful and kind, as were all the staff. Really good double glazing which was needed to provide soundproofing from the very busy road.
"An absolutely beautiful apartment!"

I had a group of 10 friends stay in 3 different apartments and everyone rated this place as excellent. The service and was extremely friendly and the location is perfect. I highly recommend Aspasios and will definitely be using their other locations,

We stayed in Arago for 10 days in Feb 2014. Actually no complaints. Apartment was clean and nice, also staff was very helpful. Spacious also as we have only 2 collagues needing 2 separate bedrooms. Location is OK - although taxi drivers mixed up the address (thank you for very friendly staff - Diego - who picked us up from wrong place) One minus only - could have more kitchen / cooking utensils. Would definitely book again.

Fantastic apartment, manager friendly and very helpful, the apartment was modern, warm, clean and very comfortable. Complementary bottle of wine, water, coffee, biscuits etc. very welcome. Would highly recommend. The only downside was the lack of cooking utensils, we found on Christmas eve we only had one small pan and two frying pans! not ideal to cook a full Christmas dinner which we intended, luckily we found a Chinese store open so were able to buy tin foil dishes so we managed but that was the only down side.
"after 6pm arrival & no staff !"
11/18/13 christine e Adelaide, Australia
We had phoned through to say we would be arriving around 6pm & the staff member said we close at 6pm. My husband told him we had two young children. Upon arriving, we could not get into the apartment building & the office was closed. The number displayed to ring was a recorded message. We gained entry to the building through other guests arriving thank goodness as it was now dark & cold & they had not eaten. One of the guests gave us the mobile number of the staff member & he gave us the code number to the letterbox to get the key. As it turned out we were in the apartment next door. By the time we got in it was 8:45pm at night & we were exhausted. The after hours service needs to be improved as it is very inconvenient and not explained well. Thankyou to the Nepalese shop keeper around the corner who lent us her mobile as we did not have access to a phone. Apart from this, the apartment was lovely & about 20 mins walk to La Ramblas but no metro stations nearby. Supermarket in the next street which was great & butcher & fruit shop nearby. The apartment had a glass in the kitchen with a lipstick mark on it & there was a sewer smell when the bathroom windows were opened.
"Nice stay with our family"
11/04/13 Antti K Espoo, Finland
I spent 11 days at Arago in February 2013. I was in Barcelona for business but brought my family with me. The room was clean and our small kids appreciated the big window to the street - they loved watching the morning traffic and gave us chance to enjoy our morning coffee undisturbed :) In case I'm back in town, will definitely considerate staying at Aspasios Arago again.
"Ok for two"
10/07/13 Luxotraveller Luxembourg
We chose this apartment so my buddy and I could have separate rooms but still be close for our mini lads’ weekend in Barcelona. It was however a shock to lie down on the sofa bed. A spike mat would be more comfortable. Fortunately it could be solved by moving one of the mattresses from the double bed and put it on the living room floor. The apartment looked nice and was well equipped, and the electronic card lock with additional mechanical bolts was a welcome security feature. However, the safe was out of order. Unprofessional detail to promise a bottle of wine which was not there. I should have expected a 20 room apartment hotel not to have a full reception, so I shouldn’t complain about that little hassle.
"Well equipped, location is a bit off-center"
08/26/13 a_a_ar Israel
The apartment was well equipped, including a capsule Espresso maker (with only 6 free capsules), dishwasher, and nice furniture. The environment was a bit disappointing - Asian grocery stores, tire stores, etc. You need to walk quite a while (7 blocks, ~20 min) to get to Rambla de Cataluña for some atmosphere. Also the Metro station is a bit far (3 blocks). Late check-in went extremely smooth, and after checking-out we left our luggage in the self-service 1-euro lockers. We needed 2 lockers and only one was available, so the extra-nice girl in the front desk stored our extra-luggage at her office, and at the end of the day put it in a locker that became available (at no cost), and called us to notify everything is fine. Bottom-line: a vey good experience.
"Not Great, Very Basic for the Price"
07/29/13 emmosucks england
We arrived to our apartment on Tuesday night at 10pm - we had already paid a late check in fee due to staff only working till 7pm. In our confirmation email it gave us a code to unlock a cabinet next to reception so we could retrieve our room keys. After numerous attempts at trying to open the cabinet and having 'Cabinet locked' we rang the number left on the reception door. No answer and by this time it was 11.30pm and we were getting very anxious as it was dark and we were in a new, unfamiliar place. We walked away from the apartments very p***sd off and panicky thinking "we'll have to either head back to the airport or find a new hotel for the night" 12am we got a phone call from Diego (after walking 20 mins away from the apartment building) apologising for not answering his phone then asking us 'whether we were sure we had typed in the number correct' After a few tense phone calls we proceeded to walk back to the apartment and after having to persuade Diego to leave wherever he was to help us we eventually got into our apartment at 12.45am. In the morning we went to reception to discuss the previous nights complications and we were first greeted with no understanding from either of the staff, we were informed that nothing had ever happened like this in the 4 months Diego had been working there. This was very frustrating as we paid an extra 40 euros for having the privileged of not being greeted on arrival and waiting outside for over 2 hours. After much persuasion we were refunded this. The apartment was pretty basic - in the package we were promised a bottle of wine on arrival - this was not there. (this was rectified by Diego by offering us a bottle of Cava) We had no clean towels from Tuesday till Friday. There was a bad smell in the mornings and around 5/6pm when obviously everyone was using the bathroom facilities. The apartment didn't smell fresh or clean after the cleaners had been in. When the cleaners did come in they left the full bin bag of rubbish underneath the sink instead of disposing, by this time we had had enough of complaining and thought 'maybe its just us being too picky?' in hindsight I don't think this was the case I would definitely NOT recommend anyone to stay at these apartments, apart from the location there is nothing luxury or luxurious about these apartments apart from the price!!!!!
