"cheap but NOT worth it!" Aparthotel Citadines Ramblas Tip by trixiebellefifi

Aparthotel Citadines Ramblas, Barcelona: 867 reviews and 1 photos

The best thing going for this place is the location. Otherwise.......we spent our first three nites sleepless due to the LOUD music coming from the resturant next door......it was closed, but the music played on. Catalin version of elevator music. Staff was unwilling to deal ( nobody else complained....) until I insisted......finally, at 1AM, they told us they'd move us to another room.....with a single bed, and we'd have to pay an extra cleaning fee.

THEN....we went bathless for the remainder of the stay, due to the disgusting brown water that came out of the faucets. Again, staff was unconcerned (It's NEVER happened before......probably only rust.....run the water for a while and it should clear.......it didn't)

These rooms come with a kitchen, but using any of the appliances in tandem cause a breaker to trip.

Internet connections are PAINFULLY slow, and staying connected for longer than 30 minutes at a time was impossible.

The best thing we found the staff did was perform the shoulder shrug of indifference. And they didn't even do that all that well..
