If you visit Barcelona in group or with your family, an apartment might be the best choice so you will all be in the same place. Rent a holiday apartment in Barcelona is an easy task and there are plenty to choose from.

There are many advantages to stay in an apartment in Barcelona:

  • You can save money if you occupy the apartment with the maximum occupancy
  • You will have the flexibility to cook if you wish and have at home facilities
  • If you have children, you will be able to have them all in the same room or house. Some hotels have restrictions on how many kids can accommodate in the same room.
  • You will save in breakfasts if you wish to, with few ingredients you can have a complete breakfast 

Review the different options and prices, there might be huge differences between one apartment and another one in terms of facilities, bathrooms, rooms, extra features etc...

See below a selection of Barcelona holiday apartments for long and short term duration and make your reservation:

Aspasios apartments: we stayed in a Aspasios apartment in Barcelona for a weekend and we loved it, we stayed in the city center and it was a spacios apartment with room up to 8 people with a terrace a luxury facilities. I was in love with the dress room, it could have easily been a chapter of sex and the city, I could imagine myself as Carrie Bradshaw. 

Airbnb: there are a wide variety of apartments in Airbnb listings, my recommendation when using economy sharing services is to always look at the recommendations of other users and see their reviews. Check out first the location and that the apartment facilities to make sure that fits your needs. Get 18 euros of credit with Airbnb  if you register and travel. 

My recommendation is to stay in a local area, a lot easier to buy food at the supermarket and get a clear idea how people live in the city. Searching through Airbnb I found two apartments I would rent for myself

Barcelona apartment in Poblesec, they have 64 reviews that are incredible, the apartment is located at a 10-minute walk from las Ramblas, so very near the city center and nice design. The price averages 70 dollars a night for a full apartment with 2 people occupancy, there is the possibility to add additional guests for a fee.

c Another one I would choose is an apartment in Barcelona in Sagrada Familia, where I live, the area although is hectic in the mornings when you most likely will be out exploring the city, at night the area is very quiet. With 96 reviews, it seems that people who stayed in, enjoyed the apartment.

There are also other apartment companies that work with the sharing economy and you can rent local apartments and houses like Wimdu or Homeaway.
