I came to know that Barcelona is filled to the brim with various ApartHotel concepts. Which I also came to know is an apartment style room with hotel style service thus – “ApartHotel” and I had the pleasure of discovering this concept at one of Barcelona’s best – ‘Aparthotel Silver’ located just a short walk away from the main Catalunya strip, infact we walked to our dinner reservations one of the nights as it was so close by in the main hub, also close by is Casa Batlló one of Gaudi’s designs
What I liked at Aparthotel Silver in Barcelona:
- our Superior room of 35 m2 – as it was 3 of us, we had a king size room and a big sofa and a little kitchen (with fridge, kettle, microwave) which came in handy when the girls bought bread baguettes and traditional Spanish jamon (ham.) We also had a 32” TV, DVD, hi-fi stereo and a hair dryer to use.
- a welcome champagne (which made the girls happy) and a box with different chocolates (which made me more than happy)
- big corner bathtub in the bathroom. Sorry, but no bathtub laptop-bikini photos are coming now as I had no time for travel blogging.
- beautiful terrace – we had a terrace of the same length as the whole apartment, with sun beds, different flowers and a table with chairs. Aaaand with UMELY grass where I could walk barefoot, yay! Shame we did not spend any time during the day here to sunbathe and enjoy the views through the red and pink flower petals, but then, hey, we managed to find an hour or two for the beach every day. Better, right?
Hotel Review: Aparthotel Silver, Barcelona
On my recent travels around Spain, I spent a few days in Barcelona, both before and after attending TBEX Europe 2015in Costa Brava. For my second stay in the city after the conference, I knew I wanted to base myself in Gracia, the city’s hippest neighborhood that is home to artists and, as many locals say, feels different from the rest of the city. Obviously, my curiosity was stoked. It sounded like Gracia was my kind of neighborhood and this time around, I had the pleasure of staying with Aparthotel Silver. I must admit that it’s not often that I feel as spoilt as I did when staying at this lovely hotel apartment
Con estas palabras, el gran critico hotelero Fernando Gallardo, identifica el Aparthotel Silver. Seguir leyendo
