4 of us stayed in a junior suite for 3 nights, which was nearly ideal. A 5th member of our group stayed the last night, and sleeping arrangements became slightly cramped. Had 2 of the 5 occupants been a couple, this suite would have been absolutely perfect.
Our suite consisted of 2 bedrooms, 1.5 baths, a kitchen, a family room (w/ pullout couch), and a patio balcony. Our suite was even larger than necessary, probably, but I'm obviously not complaining. I can't really think of a single complaint about the actual room itself, although I have no idea what the rest of the suites/flats were like.
The building is centrally located in Barcelona. The neighborhood seemed generally safe, albeit slightly quiet. It's somewhat removed from the hustle and bustle of the main tourist areas, but it's not that hard to reach them.
I have 3 criticisms, and they're relatively minor to me:
1. nearest Metro stations are a few blocks away (5 or so minute walks).
2. no key cards. Had to carry a front door key and a room key. Not terribly inconvenient, but not ideal.
3. small hot water tank. hot water ran out quickly.
If you're only in town for a night or two, you may not need this type of accommodation, but for larger parties or families, staying 3+ nights, I highly recommend Grandom Suites. You will not regret it. It felt like a home. In addition, there are grocery stores and markets nearby to buy food you can prepare in your very own kitchen. The staff, when they were present, were extremely friendly and helpful. (They're not there at night or during siesta)
Barcelona is an awesome city and our Grandom Suites suite was a fantastic home base from which to explore the town.
In addition, the complimentary snack room was awesome: free pastries, orange juice, espresso, cappuccino capsules for your room's coffee maker, and various other snicker-snacks. TAKE ADVANTAGE.
