Self-catered apartments are a great alternative to traditional hotel accommodations. Not only do they provide more space to hang out in, but they also give travelers a sense of independence and the feeling of living like a local. After a long day of sightseeing, you can go home to your own apartment, prepare a nice meal with the goodies you found at the local market, and kick-back in your living room to plan the next day’s adventures.
The Eixample neighborhood, which means “extension”, is an area that was a planned urban development designed in the middle of the 19th C. by architect Ildefons Cerdà. Unlike the medieval Old Quarter of the city, which has narrow, winding streets, the Eixample was laid out in a grid-pattern with wide streets and cut-off corners to allow horse-drawn wagons to make turns more easily. The Eixample is one of the city’s most upscale neighborhoods, with architectural gems from the Modernist movement, elegant shops, and restaurants.
The following is a list of self-catered apartment options in the Eixample area. Although the apartments are self-catered, all have either on-site staffed reception areas with limited hours, or assistance is provided by a related hotel property that is staffed at all times. The apartments are fully furnished and equipped with towels, linens, and kitchenware, and daily maid service is provided.
