Barcelona is a pretty pricey city to find nice accomodations in, and DestinationBCN offers a great alternative. This is not a conventional hotel.... your taxi drops you off in front of a closed door with a few buzzers. You find the right button, and get buzzed in by the the receptionist to a small foyer that has a staircase, tiny elevator and not much else. She will come get you and take you to one of the apartments and get you sorted.
The apartments are top notch. Fully equiped kitchen, very nice bathroom, bedroom and then a living space that includes dining table and sofa / seating area. All newly renovated and decorated in quiet, hip style.
There is not staff as you would see in a hotel, but person who gets you settled can help with questions you might have. And then Barcelona is at your feet. The location is right at the top of the historic district and 80% of the City's sights are within walking distance.
You forego some of the usual amenities of a hotel experience (staff, restaurants, pool, spa) but in return get an excellent place to recover from your explorations, in a great location and at a decent price relative to what other places would charge.
