Barcelona - Silver House Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy to have found such a great apartment in Barcelona. We spent a week at the Silver House and found it to be perfect for our family's needs and within walking distance of everything we wanted to see or visit.

The Owner, Ignacio, was attentive to any questions or requests that we had and we would highly recommend this apartment.

Visit the wine shop just up the street, the owner there was very helpful with Spanish selections. The local market around the corner offers fresh produce, meat and fish from individual, family owned, stalls or below it at the supermarket for everyday needs. For tapas, head up and dine locally with in the neighborhood for a local, away from the busy tuourist areas.

Overall, very happy we found the Silver House rather than a hotel and got to experience Barcelona more from the neighborhoods perspective.

This is an excellently located property, quiet and within easy walking distance of the sights.

  • 4 of 5

The property is beautifully decorated, with two balconies allowing one to spend time outside even though you are on the fourth floor. At the rear of the apartment you overlook a peaceful convent garden. The living area is spacious with a good size kitchen. There are two good size bathrooms. The bunk room is not ideal, rather cramped, with only a skylight. The other two rooms are airy and big with doors onto the back balcony. The double bed is a bit too firm but of a good size. All in all, a most enjoyable place to stay and would go back.

Terrific apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5

I usually don't bother with review requests that we are bombarded with, but I think it is so helpful when figuring out where to stay. Having read through the other reviews, I don't think there is much to add except to say that we had a great stay in Barcelona and the apartment itself was a big factor. We were three people, two a married couple, and so we had plenty of room. The kitchen and baths had all the necessary appointments, although we did little eating there. The location of the apartment is excellent and the furnishings were very nice. Many of the sites we were interested in seeing were within walking distance, and we also used the Metro system extensively. It is easy to use (ticket machines allow you to choose a language) and the maps are very straight-forward. I do want to respond to the prior guest who questioned the security deposit and extra fee for late checkin. The expectation of a security deposit was made clear at the time we booked the apartment so there was no surprise. We too arrived late due to a missed train, and we were charged 50 euros. I don't think that was unwarranted, especially at 23:00. We did not have any problems with the security deposit which we paid, and then had returned the evening before we left. I think that an owner can run into all sorts of bad tenants and he needs to protect himself. All in all, it was a great apartment in a great city!

Large apartment with great outdoor spaces, centrally located to all of the best attractions

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had a fantastic stay at the Silver House in mid October. The apartment is perfectly located; less than 100 meters from the Girona Metro stop and within easy walking distance of La Sagrida Familia, Parc de la Ciutadella and the shopping area of Passeig de Gracia. Check in/out were easy with both Alvarro (letting agent) and Ignacio (owner) being very friendly. The home itself is very clean, with fully apportioned kitchen and large eating areas both inside and on the main deck overlooking Girona street.

Bedrooms were of good size. Beds left a little to desire in terms of comfort (thin mattresses, no top sheets), but we still slept very well.

All in all, we thought it was a great value for the space and location (vs. $700 and up for area hotel rooms at the same time) and would recommend it for groups of 4-5 or less.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

Very attractive apartment, cleverly designed so that there's a lot of flexibility of use. While you can be having conversation in the central area, there are plenty of other areas where you can escape to read, undisturbed.

The place is immaculately clean and the beds and seating are very comfortable. In August I wouldn't rely on the room with the bunk beds, as you cannot get a through draft, but the two large rooms are very airy.

While the Gothic district is medieval, it is extremely touristy and intense. The modernista neighbourhood where the Silver House is situated, feels more authentic. It is very open and leafy and the nearby Bracafe and Betlem restaurant were excellent and very friendly.

The (easy to negotiate) metro is 2 minutes walk away and makes getting around Barcelona in the heat of summer very easy.

Ignacio and Paola were friendly and helpful.
