I must say that staying at this property was great! Being 4,000 miles away from home, it provided all the comforts of home. The location was perfect (close to city center & metro) was a little noisy, which is to be expected in a city center area. I wasn't a big fan of the automatic check-in machine. I did have problems checking in, which resulted in […] me having to call them. Aside from that,I had a minor issue with the lock on our original unit, but they were able to move us to a more accommodating unit. Lastly, PLEASE MAKE SURE TO CALL THEM BEFORE ARRIVING, SO YOU CAN GET THE GATE CODE TO GET INSIDE!I would stay here again easily. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean, new apartments on pedestrian street"
We were quite happy with our stay in these apartments. The price was similar to other apartments we looked at but without the pricey cleaning fee or having to meet a person to let us in. It was also cheaper than staying in a hotel for our family. We were prepared after reading other reviews for the check-in process of needing to call the hotel manager […] to get the passcode to enter the building, which was a bit of a pain if you have a foreign phone that charges a lot to call from abroad; however it seemed to work OK (would work better if they could have mailed us a code ahead of time by email). Once this checkin process was done, everything was great. The apartment was very clean, new, tastefully decorated. Our family of 4 was comfortable in the apartment and able to prepare some meals in the kitchen. It was conveniently located close to several metro stops to whisk you off to tourist sites or you could walk to Plaza Catalunya and the Ramblas in about 20-30 minutes, which we did several times. The neighborhood itself was very nice, on a pedestrian street with a few nice tapa places and restaurants nearby (cheaper than in the tourist areas). If you do not have too much time in Barcelona and you want to be in the heart of all the action, it might be better to try to find a place a little closer to the Gothic quarter, but we found this location to be quite acceptable Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"No Front Desk & No One On Site"
These accommodations are just what they claim to be -- apartments. First the negative. If you don't have the code to enter the building -- and we didn't -- you will have to wait for someone either entering or exiting the building to let you in. Once inside, you will have to use an ATM-like machine to get your keys. Even though the room was prepaid, […] you will need to pay the tax on the room using a credit card which you better know your ATM code to use. If you need assistance, you will need to use the phone located next to the machine where you will reach the incredibly rude apartment manager. The wireless internet connection is spotty at best. The instructions for the almost useless washer/dryer (you can only do a very small load of laundry at a time) are very tough to understand. As for the upside, you can cook and eat in the apartment and there are separate bedrooms. The metro lines are not all that far, and the neighborhood is quaint and relatively safe. The room was clean and comfortable. In spite of everything, I would actually consider staying here again as long as the price was right. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very good for families"
Had a great time in SPAIN, location was very good only a few minutes to Plaza Espana and metro.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Affordable and pleasant stay"
As long as you're prepared, ie. you make contact ahead of your stay to obtain the code to get into the building, everything else about checking in and getting your room key is easy. The apartments are great, well maintained, modern and clean. The location is also ideal for the underground and tourist attractions too. Plus, it's really well priced […] compared to other hotels.

"Great apartment for exploring barcelona on foot"
I was surprised by the lack of a reception desk, however check in was done at a machine in the lobby, and there was a helpline number for any questions which in fact worked very well. The apartment was an ideal size for a couple and very well appointed. The location was excellent for the palace and other attractions at Mont Juic, and about a 30 minute […] walk from the marina. I would certainly stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place for shopping at the local Arena"
Its a great place to stay and will definitely be using more MH Apartments but the only problems I had was to do with the WIFI, bathroom sliding door not opening or closing properly and as we checked in after 2.30pm, the beds were still to be done by the staff but overall, fantastic place for self catering.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Wonderful apartment in a good location. The wifi really needs an upgrade though, very slow and not working in the bedrooms.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
You need to call the hotel reception from your mobile as the property is not manned to get the access code to the building, we arrived in Barcelona at 11am but check in is 2pm, there are lockers to leave your luggage but only 4, the door to the apartment is difficult to open!Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by MH Apartments Urban Dear client thank you for your comments we appreciate that. The information regarding the check in process and the time table is on the web site, the check in is from 14 o'clock there is an automatic check in machine inside the building, if you arriva before 14 o'clock MH Apartments Urban is provided with lockers free of charge. Regarding the door it's just bring the card to the door and once the light is green you must torn the handle.
A lovely place to stay to see barcelona and better value then any hotel around. The only issue was the drainage in the shower, a great shower but too much water blocked the plug. The area was great and the kitchen had everything we could need.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Lovely apartment with everything you need. Plenty of space, good value for money and excellent location. Very disappointed with door entry system and no staff on site. Booking in is carried out with a computer screen inside the building in the lobby. Very difficult to gain access to lobby to book in. We were lucky as two helpful Australians staying […] there came to our assistance Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Stay in a hotel instead"
3 night stay nearly 400 euros and they don't clean the room, the shower was cold the first night, the bed is too hard and two of the tiniest singles pushed together and no where to leave your luggage on the last day if you miss out on one of the lockers. It's not centrally located to anything. no one actually on site so you have to keep making phone […] calls if you need something (they don't provide a phone, that's on you). For the price and facilities, you are better off in a hotel, unless you are desperate to cook for yourself. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by MH Apartments Urban Dear client, Thank you for having booked in MH Apartments. We are sorry if you don't feel as good as you thought in our apartments, but as our advertising we are MH Apartments and we do not have services like hotel. But we must say that our apartments are brand new and totally equipped with superior qualities (we did not have ever any complaint about the beds) and located 5 minutes to Plaza Espanya, which is quite central and totally connected with the main central location. If you have any problem during your stay we inform all the clients there is a telephone next to the check in machine in the hall to contact directly to our office 24h. As well, we have 4 lockers to leave the luggage in the hall for early check ins or late check outs. Best regards, MH Apartments Staff
"not the beat choice...but Carlos tried"
The apartment was diffucult to get into . The automatic checkin was not very seamless but eventually Carlos got us in . The apartment was freezing cold and we could not turn up the thermostat to any satisfaction. The unit was sufficiently large and quite comfortable,but we had too many issues to say i could recommend this apartment or that i would stay […] here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by MH Apartments Urban Dear client, Thank you for having booked in MH Apartments. We apologize if you don't have a nice start of your trip using our automatic check in machine, probably it was a punctual problem that my colleague Carlos solved quickly. About your problems with the heating, we leave in all the apartments all the instructions for all the supplies, and if you have any problem with any of them you have a telephone 24h for any issue in your apartment. Please note that the apartments are opened from March this year and we did not have any problem with heatings/ air conditionings yet. We hope you can come back to Barcelona and stay in our apartments again to have another opinions about us. Best regarda

"Bästa boendet i Barna"
Perfekt och prisvärt boende för ett par eller två kompisar. Ny och modern lägenhet med kök, badrum, tvättmaskin, vardagsrum och sovrum. Ligger dessutom i ett schyst område med många barer fulla med icke-turister. Det enda minuset jag kommer på är att det är lite konstigt att checka in själv genom en maskin eftersom det inte finns någon reception.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Je recommande cet apparthotel pour les familles avec enfants en bas age, car il est situé dans un cartier piéton doté de plusieurs aires de jeux, d'ailleurs nous avions un aire de jeu juste en bas de l'établissement. L'appart est par ailleurs très reposant après une journée de marche. L'appartement est très bien équipé notamment le coin cuisine. N'oubliez […] pas de ramener avec vous des capsules Nespresso. Les moins : Une petite savonnette seulement pour se laver les mains, matelas moyens, bruyant la nuit du coté de la chambre (bus, voitures, motos), poussière sur le sol, seulement 2 chaines en français. N'oubliez pas de contacter l'établissement avant votre arrivée pour vous donner le code d'entrée de l'immeuble. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Clear room for improvement"
It's hard to enjoy a stay that starts and ends badly: we got to the apartment building two hours earlier than the checking time, hoping to be able to put our luggage in the lockers and hit the city, when we found the check-in machine computer -looking like an atm- crashed with the classic blue Windows screen. We called the hotel service -no reception […] in this hotel- to let them know and get it fixed before the check-in time. Bon chance, two hours later we were greeted by the same crashed computer screen, and had to wait for another hour before a service guy came and fixed it. On our last day, a similar issue: four lockers for 8 apartments? No locker was available for us, so we had to change our plans and carry our luggage across the city. Previously I found the apartment building a good idea, now I value the services provided by the receptionist. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by MH Apartments Urban Dear Guest first of all thank you for your comments about your stay ee appreciate that. We are sorry about the incident during your check in process, there is usually no problems with self check in machine and process is always fast and simple, sorry for the inconvenience . About the lockers being a few apartment building is rarely filled and there is usually always available in case that all of them were locked you must called to the office and we could give you another solution.
The location of the apartment is around 5 mins walk from the Espanya Station. The check-in process is kinda weird - there are no receptionist for check-in, everything is done with a machine. Other than this, everything is pretty good. The apartment is neat and tidy, the bathroom is clean, the bed is comfortable. I will definitely recommend this apa […] rtment.

"Maggio a Barcelona"
Mh apartments Urban é situato nell'avinguda Mistral 61, zona strategica per muoversi tranquillamente in metro o con i bus da Plaza espanda! All'arrivo si é costretti a chiamare ad un numero di telefono spagnolo per parlare con una signora molto antipatica e sgarbata che dovrebbe darti il codice per entrare dal portone (tutto in inglese) Nessuno ti accoglie […] all'entrata siete solo voi a dover fare i conti con una macchinetta per il check-in poco chiara e che fa perdere tempo per delle operazioni molto semplici. Pagamento immediato senza rilascio di nessuna ricevuta!!! Appartamento bello, con grandi finestre e mobili moderni. Pulizia deludente, phon sporco, doccia intasata d'acqua, niente bidet naturalmente.

"Besser als ein Hotel"
Bin mit ein paar Kollegen nach Barcelona gereist. Die Wohnung (2 Schlafzimmer + Stube) ist gut eingerichtet (Küche, Bügeleisen, Waschmaschine,..), gepflegt und sauber. Sie liegt an ruhiger Lage und doch recht zentral; zu Fuss hat man etwa 15-20 Minuten bis zur Altstadt. Für den Checkin muss man die angeschriebene Telefonnummer anrufen, erhält einen […] PIN für die Türe und kann dann an einem Automaten einchecken. Dies war mir neu, hat aber ganz gut geklappt. Vor der Türe ist noch ein Spielplatz für kleine Kinder. Nach meiner Erfahrung kann ich diese Appartments empfehlen. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Lägenheten var väldigt rymlig med separat sovrum och bra kök. Stort plus för diskmaskin och tvättmaskin. Läget är mycket bra för besökare som ska till Fira-mässan. Rekommenderas!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Отель очень удачно расположен и оснащен всем необходимым. Однако, если вы не владеете английским языком, заселение окажется серьезной проблемой. Ресепшн отсутствует, чтобы зайти внутрь необходима консультация администратора по телефону (он указан на табличке снаружи), администратор сообщает код от входной двери и то, что ключ выдается автоматом в холле. […] В автомате также все инструкции на английском языке. Из неудобств, пожалуй, мало шкафов и то, что в туалет можно попасть только из спальни, это неудобно, когда путешествуешь с маленьким ребенком (как мы). И еще, рядом находится шумная улица, движение по которой начинается рано утром, так что соням поспать не удастся. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

This was the first time I've stayed in an apartment type accommodation. It was a relatively easy process, however, I travel with a phone so it was easy to communicate to find the place and get inside the building. Without a phone I can imagine it might be way more difficult. The apartments themselves are really modern and spacious and have everything you can need. I stayed with a group of 3 friends so four adults and we had plenty of room. Location was great-in Barcelona everything is kinda spread but we were able to find easy transportation near hotel.

"Pathetic Experience - Poor Maintenance and House-keeping"
10/09/13 Vijay Kumar M Noida, India
We (six adults and three children) had rented two Apartments No 51 & 52 in MH Apartments Urban from 11th to the 15th of June. This reservation was made through hotels.com booking reference number 338264134 (63) & 338265089 (63). Even though we have paid premium price for these apartments the quality of Apartments and our experience have been really bad. Some of the issues 1. As soon as we entered the Apartments we noticed that the air-conditioning was not working in both the apartments. It took half a day to fix the air-conditioning. 2. However despite repairs the air-conditioning kept tripping every 15 minutes during the night as a result we were not able to sleep as it was quite hot. We made a complaint in the morning. 3. The bathroom door in Apartment No 52 would not lock properly resulting in no privacy. The maintenance staff was not able to fix it 4. No sheets were provided in any of the rooms for the sofa cum bed. 5. The cupboard door in Apartment 51 was lying on the floor separated from the cupboard and was fixed only after a day. When we called up the maintenance team, they said they were aware of the same. So I guess it was a known problem and had not been fixed. Reflects attitude. 6. Though the air-conditioners were repaired however the air-conditioning failed to work in one of the Apartments as a result all nine of us had to sleep in one Apartment.
"Handy location - good facilities"
08/16/13 lpalmer53 Brisbane, Australia
Had a great stay for 8 nights. A little difficult with self check in, and we had difficulty with locking our door, but apart from that the apartment was clean and everything worked well. Great inclusions with coffee machine, microwave, oven, cooktop, dishwasher and plenty of cooking utensils. Bathroom a little small but included washing machine/dryer. Shower tiny but great water pressure. Very close to Plasa Espania with shopping and metro. Great view from top of Arenas de Barcelona. Walking distance to Montjuic via escalator system which worked really well. A bit of a hike but great in the evenings when Magic Fountains were playing. All in all would highly recommend MH Urban.
"Nice place but no good service"
07/18/13 Zeev D Tel Aviv
After self complicated check in process that needed remote assistance we checked in at 2 PM but the room was not ready in cleaning process. The guy asked us to wait one hour but as we were with the bags with no lobby to stay we disputed on the phone and they manage to replace the room so we check in late at 2:30 PM. The rooms are nice and fitted our needs of 4 persons. There is a noise coming from the street of bus station that starting operating at 5:45 AM. The location is good closed to Espania plaza and Metro and buses. There are several supermarkets across the street. The international cable channel box didn’t work and they fixed it only after 3 days but we were disappointed to find that the vriaty was low with no HD.
"Nice place for short and long stay"
My family and I stayed there for 4 nights, and all of us are really satisfy for booking this place. The first point is about good location, it's near plasa Espania, you can walk for apartment to square less than 5 min so you can access to public transportation such as metro and bus and the main station for cheapest bus to airport(bus46). The second and important point is about equipment of rooms, in all room you can access to microwave, wash machine, and all things that need in one house, so if you dicide to staying in barcelona more than 3 days I really recommended this hotel apartments.
"Pathetic maintenance and service levels"
We checked into two apartments after booking through hotels.com AC was not working in any of the apartments. Somebody came to fix it who took an hour but at night it started tripping again and none of us could sleep all night The bathroom couldn't lock even though the maintenance person tried repairing it twice Cupboards didn't work List is very long so just one advice, stay away
"Modern and Functional Apartments"
06/12/13 Bellapod77 Reading, United Kingdom
Spent two nights at the apartment on the 7th floor. As soon as myself and my son arrived we felt at home. Checking in was easier with the automated system. No problems with the keycard either. WIFI worked fine (which my teenage son loved) and all the equipment worked. It was clean with views of the children's playground on one side and the other street on the other side. Beds were comfortable and the Nespresso machine was lovely! Shower was hot and air conditioning was cool. There were plenty of places to eat and shop. Plus the metro was really close by as was the Magic Fountain. As a woman walking with a teenage child at 12.30am after a concert at the Olympic Stadium, I felt safe walking back to this apartment which was definitely a plus. I will return to these apartments as they did exactly what they advertised.
"Clean, modern appartments"
06/07/13 gmarLiverpool liverpool
Stayed here with husband and 2 teenage sons. Very clean and tidy, very modern appartments. Check-in a bit tricky as it is all computerised and no actually person to speak to or ask about tourist attractions or transport. Map of Barcelona in appartments helpful. Located on outskirts of Barcelona amongst locals. Supermarket opposite and bars and restaurants nearby. Metro station 5 minute walk away, cheap and easy to use. trains every 2 minutes. Quite location but easily accessible to tourist attractions by train or foot.
