Barcelona Accomodation

Jump to last reply

I'm off to Barcelona in May or June (yay!) and am currently researching accomodation options.

Considering both hotels and apartments. Leaning towards an apartment because I like the idea of a bit more room, and possibly some decent outside space like a terrace, though not 100% sure yet.

My main concern with apartments though is the level of service provided by the agencies doing the lettings - I've seen a surprisingly high number of reviews where people were assigned different accomodation to that which they'd booked when they were actually out there (due to 'overbooking'). Part of me thinks this might be a deliberate scam, and the other part that it's a consequence of the fact that some of the apartments are advertised with multiple agencies and lettings aren't being updated in a very organised fashion.

I did do a search on here and spotted several recommendations for Habitat - was just wondering if there are any other agencies that people were impressed with to give me a bit more choice. Oh, and anyone to avoid like the plague!

Many Thanks.
