"Not a luxury apartment, just a place with small rooms with noise of cars from street..."

Looking at the pictures and reading reviews, I expected a spacious and nice apartment. The rooms are small, don't expect walking room around beds. Kids had trouble sleeping on the beds, not the l… More

Dear Guest,
I am very sorry to read that you were unhappy with your stay at Bougainvillea. I think it is important to take into account that our apartment policy is a maximum of 6 guests. When you arrived at check-in and told me you were in fact 7 people I was surprised that you did not make this clear at the time of booking. If you had done so I would have most definitely recommended you look for alternative accommodation. However, feeling quite put on the spot I decided to allow the 7th guest to stay for no other reason than your convenience.
I now regret that decision as clearly my concerns for adding the extra guest have been vindicated by your apparent dissatisfaction with your experience. Our policy exists for very good reason; we did not choose our maximum guest number in an arbitrary fashion but rather as a well considered decision based solely on the optimal comfort of our guests.
Our apartment has been very well thought out in terms of up to 6 people sleeping, showering and living in comfort. The lounge, dining, kitchen and patio make for wonderful communal areas where the group can spend down time during their stay with us in Barcelona. Everything we provide is with 6 people in mind including the kitchen supplies and three double beds. Adding more people to the mix will inevitably reduce the capacity of resources such as hot water, sleeping space and in turn every guests overall comfort.
Our ad clearly states there is 1 shower and 2 toilets in the apartment. This information was clear to you at the time of booking as well.
The charm of staying in a well appointed apartment like ours is that you can feel right at home and enjoy the experience of living amongst the locals. Our rain shower is a wonderful luxury experience that is enjoyed by all our guests. However, as previously mentioned, 7 guests is not within our domestic tank´s range of sequential showers– it simply was not designed for a group of that size.
I imagine you enjoyed the added extras such as your welcome bottle of wine and drinks for the children, the complimentary tea, coffee, filtered water and toiletries – something I know most apartments do not offer but all our guests appreciate.
Best wishes for the future Sophie
