Holidays are meant to be enjoyed, and this is exactly why choosing your accommodation wisely is so important for your unforgettable trip. However, this is not an easy decision to make. Here in Barcelona we are receiving more and more tourists every year and, accordingly, accommodation options have also been increasing. But not all the accommodation options come with a quality guarantee: whether it is well connected with downtown, its hygiene standard and services offered to guests. At the below we are going to explain why luxury apartments are your best accommodation choice in Barcelona.
Ideal accommodation type for groups and families
Unlike hotels, luxury apartments make it possible for a whole family or a whole group of friends to stay together, without having to split between several hotel rooms. A well-equipped kitchen and a living room for your exclusive use can also make your stay more homey. These two advantages are decisive in choosing your accommodation especially for larger groups.
Here in Mercedes Heritage Apartments, all our apartments are fully equipped and designed to offer the utmost comfort to our guests. Every apartment has its own kitchen, LCD TV with satellite channels, soundproofing and individual air-conditioning systems, as well as Wifi network and a safe.
Fantastic location at the heart of the city: Eixample
Barcelona has a city population of more than 1,600,000 and its city area reaches 102.15km², making it the second largest city in Spain and the eleventh in EU. It is composed of 10 administrative territories and 73 neighbourhoods in total, something that has to be beared in mind when considering your accommodation options.
The Eixample area (a.k.a. Ensanche in Spanish) is one of the best locations. It is the most centric area of the city and just next to the Ciutat Vella, the most touristic old town area. Eixample is perfectly connected with other areas of interests, such as the Tibidabo amusement park, the Montjüic hill and the Horta Park.
Barcelona is a city of architecture. Stroll around the streets of Eixample – this is where you will see the most well-known modernist buildings from the 19th century, like Gaudi’s Casa Milà and Casa Batlló, both on the Paseo de Gracia street. On the other hand, Eixample is also the most lively area in town, where you can find the best restaurants, the most unique shops and every kind of stores like supermarkets and pharmacies. Old, yet so modern; historical, yet so lively, other districts don’t even come close to Eixample.
Our apartments are located in the Esquerra del Eixample district, just 15 minutes away from the Plaza Cataluña on foot and 50 metres from the metro station “Hospital Clínic” (line 5). Bus stops for the line 63 and 66 (toward Plaza Cataluña) and night bus N7 and N12 (a.k.a. Nitbus in Catalan) are also just a few steps away.
Service excellence, management and confidence
Another point to note when choosing your luxury apartment to stay in Barcelona is that the apartment should have good management: this means that the apartment should offer all the services of a traditional hotel, like reception, concierge, housekeeping etc.
Our multidisciplinary, efficient and proactive team strives to meet the highest expectations of our guests. Our reception desk is at your service everyday from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m., responding to all kinds of necessity from reservations managements to tourist information.
