As it happens in other big cities of the world, booking one of these fabulous holiday properties in Barcelona could be your best option. The offer is plentiful and scattered throughout the city.
The advantage of staying in an apartment is to have ample space and all the facilities, making you, at least for a few days, an inhabitant of the city. The apartments are equipped with kitchenware and utensils so you can prepare your morning coffee or even a meal. It can be a good option for groups of more than 2 people and also for families with children.
The downside is that, in terms of prices, and especially for 2 people, apartment prices are usually similar to those of hotels of a similar standard.
Here’s some of my favorites and suggestions of holiday properties in Barcelona for you to explore.
