Our favourite rooms
The Paso Doble suite on the fourth floor exudes stylish comfort: designed in dark, chocolatey shades with rustic hardwood furnishings and exposed brick walls. There’s a generous living space with a floor-to-ceiling bay window giving great views of the Barcelona backstreets. The two bedrooms are huge and each has its own private French balcony.
Pack some loose white linens and designer shades – you’ll want to stay comfy during those sultry summer afternoons. But leave enough room for some market-stall souvenirs.
Housekeeping is available for an extra charge, just ask the concierge.
Welcome. Cots for babies are €7 a night, and extra beds can be added to some apartments for older kids (€35 a night ). Apartment Principal is the best option for families – it can sleep up to six, with two on fold-out beds.
