Ratings and Reviews
Never leads me astray - the BEST
I love LUXE guides and I've dutifully been using them for a decade. They've never let me down yet! I still think about this tiny shop in Dubai off the beaten path where I bought the most gorgeous silk tunics....sigh.
The app is even better since you can make itineraries and lists and keep it all sorted on your mobile phone. I just came from Milan and used the LUXE guide...the bar and restaurants and things to do where all on point. Sometimes the app isn't correct about the neighborhood (Gino Sorbillo restaurant was absolutely NOT in the Duomo neighborhood) so make sure to double check locations on Google Maps or a similar app. Otherwise I'm thrilled with LUXE on my mobile!
As a judgey New Yorker... Luxe is the only guide I trust. It has saved trips for me!
Limited and disappointing
I bought the Barcelona guide and found it very disappointing, especially for the price. Several times we were in pretty basic neighborhoods (Barrio Gotic, El Born, Eixample) and found more to do from searching recent posts on local or travel blogs. For one restaurant recommendation, the name was completely wrong (or it closed). The focus seems to be more on curating a limited, exclusive, travel experience than on offering a wide variety of options.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for your feedback, we are sorry to hear that you were dissatisfied with your experience using LUXE Barcelona Digital Guide.
The LUXE brand ethos is about providing concise, fun recommendations to busy people who don't want to scroll through paragraphs of information, so we curate the entries to ensure they are short and snappy. Our guides feature the city's best restaurants, bars, spas, shops and hotels, personally recommended by our resident curators, so this can mean there is less variety in listings than on local blogs.
We apologise for the restaurant error and will ensure this is quickly amended — please email us at email@example.com with further details, alternatively you can click the 'report change' button on the listing to notify us.
Thank you again for taking the time to leave this feedback.
