I recommend this apartment to anyone who is interested in feeling like a Barcelonian even if it is only a short stay in this architecturewise glamorous city. The apartment supports the visual aspect of the city with its historical appearance and period details such as unique tiles on the floor, high ceilings, stained glass windows, wooden window frames and wooden archway in the master bedroom.
We stayed in this apartment in the second half of June 2018 for 10 days with our 2 kids and our parents as a group of 6. The apartment is great for large families with its 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Master bedroom is big and comfortable with an extra closet and 2 chests of drawers. The other 2 bedrooms are small but comfortable. Each room and the living room has an air conditioner which is a lifesaver in the highly humid climate of Barcelona. My only criticism would be the lack of closets in the relatively smaller bedrooms. Kitchen is modern and well-equipped. With 2 kids and 2 seniors we are a family who prefer having breakfasts and most dinners in the apartment so the kitchen has been very satisfactory for us.
There is a big supermarket and just above it a Spanish style market that offers fresh vegetables and fruit, cheese and meat just one block away. Bus stop is in front of the apartment and the closest metro station, Hospital Clinique is in 5 minutes walk. Plaça Catalunya is around 6 blocks away and Passeig Gracia is 5 blocks away, so if you prefer seeing the city on foot, the apartment provides easy access to major attraction areas.
I really liked receiving a detailed brochure about the apartment and its surroundings before arrival and Ekaitz who checked us in was very helpful and friendly. He had put wine, milk and water to the refrigerator before our arrival which saved us from running to supermarket immediately.
In short, both the apartment and Barcelona are great for large groups who are after architectural beauty, delicious tastes and sunny weather.
Nice apartment located in a very nice area of Barcelona.
Apartment is equipped with everything you require, TV, internet. Very well-equipped kitchen, with different coffee machines, gas cooker, microwave, dishwasher and laundry washer. And the landlord made sure that the essentials where available on arrival, milk, coffee, juice, some beer and wine and more extras. Very nice service. Only after one trip we decided to cook at home and I had bought a lamb shank on the gorges nearby market. Arriving at the apartment I had to realize there is no oven, but this is where creativity starts… family loved the dinner…
The local housekeeper provides a very good service and was very easy to communicate with.
Apartment was clean and well equipped with towels, and other necessities.
Main attractions are in walking distance or easy to reach with public transport.
We enjoyed the close by restaurants or the once we found on our trips.
Only sad point was, on the day before departure, when all my kids wanted to extend, it was unfortunately not possible
We definitely will return to this wonderful city and hopefully the apartment will be available.
Our family of 4 (husband/wife and 2 grown children) stayed for 4 nights and enjoyed the apartment. It does have 3 bedrooms, however, one is quite small. The location was central to everything and we walked almost everywhere.
My only complaint about the apartment is the noisy air conditioning unit in the largest bedroom. My husband and I are fairly light sleepers so we did have a hard time sleeping with it on and it was very warm in Barcelona during our visit so we did need to use it. For some people it may not be a problem but I would suggest the owner perhaps replace it with something quieter. We did not spend much time in the apartment as we wanted to explore as much of the city as possible and we absolutely loved Barcelona and the apartment was a great choice for our accommodations. I would recommend especially for a small family.
We stayed in this apartment (family of 5) in Barcelona and it was perfect for us. Very spacious and in a great location. We walked to many of the key spots and is easy walking distance to La Rambla. The apartment is clean and in very good condition. Everything you need is provided. We could find nothing to fault with this apartment and would definitely return. We like to stay in quality accommodation and this didn't disappoint.
This was my families first trip to Barcelona and our 4th experience with VRBOs. We have triplet teenagers and need at least two bedrooms and two bathrooms when we travel. The Silvers apartment was the perfect match for us, it is so roomy! Everyone in the family had enough breathing room to decompress when needed. The apartment is a feast for the senses! The decor is so chic and urban, the sheets are magnificent, the towels , all white and clean. I appreciated the absence of instruction sheets everywhere. We truly felt we were living in the apartment in this amazing bustling breezy city! I also appreciated the clear pricing for the apartment. Unlike our experiences in other places where we were charged for "extra persons" per night even though the flat is advertised to sleep 5-6. Overall I highly recommend this place! You won't be sorry! We will be back with adult friends to enjoy more of the night life!

The apartment is as charming as it looks in the pictures, and it has all the amenities you could ask for. Appointed in ways that make it seem more like a hotel than an apartment (we arrived to a beautiful bowl of fruit and a delicious bottle of wine), the apartment is perfectly located and has that elusive combination: it sits on a lively street that's perfect for people watching (my husband and I had a glass of wine on the terrace each evening and watched people strolling by) but the bedrooms are quiet. The space is light-filled and spacious, and there are wonderful restaurants and markets all around it. Graciela met us when we arrived and was available to help whenever we needed her. I can't wait to recommend the apartment to friends and family. It's a find!
