Activities/Attractions: Barcelona, located on the Mediterranean Sea, is located in the very north of the Spanish coast and is certainly the most cosmopolitan and economically most active city in Spain. It has always proved its will to be modern, to follow the latest international tendencies or be ahead of them. To the tourist this is evident specially in its architecture, which so well reflects the general approach to life in this always pulsating city.
Of course, Barcelona has an old history, and there are monuments of Romanesque, Gothic and Renaissance periods or still before, but most characteristic is what has been built during the last, say, 100 years. Barcelona has been a center of Modernist architecture and is distinguished specially by the works of genial Antoní Gaudí, who together with his great contemporaries gave new and exciting looks to it, but has remained since then at the top of modernity. If you want to find out which are the very latest tendencies today - go to discover it here.
Barcelona, more than just a single city, is really a collection of multi-faceted and diverse cities. The visitor unfamiliar with its history might be surprised that such a modern and enterprising city preserves its historic Gothic center almost intact, or by the curious contrast between the maze of narrow streets and the grid-like layout of the Eixample, the urban planning "Enlargement" project of the end of the 19th century.
"This hotel has lots going for it - efficient staff, free internet, gifts in the room each day (we stayed over Christmas), great location very close to the Metro and not much further to a small supermarket and other shops. We booked a studio room and were very satisfied with it. There was a small kitchenette in the room so we were able to use this for breakfast, snacks etc. The area around the hotel was well lit and we felt very secure walking around the area."
"I've been several times to Barcelona where I have relatives, last Christmas I was there with some friend of mine and decided to stay in an hotel, Aparthotel Silver has been an excellent choice. The position of the hotel is perfect, in the district of Gracia, once a small town just out of Barcelona, nowadays one of the most appreciated residential districts of the city. Downtown can be easily reached with the underground (2/3 stops) and supermarkets, restaurants, tapas bar, etc. are just 5 mins away from the hotel."
"My partner and I have stayed here 15+ times. Always a good experience. Multilingual staff, good rooms, housekeeping staff are brilliant. Free internet access in the lobby. Good neighbourhood have brekky in the Bar Bretton 30 secs away. Metro (Fontana) 1 minute. A great stay."
"The location is excellent in the quiet Gracia, close to the Fontana metro station, only 2 stops away from Park Guell and three stops away from La Rambla. You can also see Gaudi's Casa Vicens which is just a block away. There are nice neighbourhood tapas bars around, away from the tourist crowd. The staff was polite and helpful. There is a free Internet in the lobby ... Overall, I'd recommend the hotel as it offers great value for the price."
"Breakfast was good - nice selection of fruits, yoghurts, pastries, bread, cold meats and cheeses, etc. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly from the reception team to the maids and cafe workers. Internet access was free for guests. The location is excellent - just 2 minutes from the metro - and in a pleasant area (Gracia) ... expect a warm welcome and a superb base for your trip to Barcelona."
"Very good hotel - clean, good staff, free internet, very central location, spacious room."
"We have stayed 4 nights in this hotel and enjoyed our stay. The location is quite good and just a minute walk from the metro station, very convenient. The receptionists are very kind and helpful, the receptionists in the day time can speak fluent English and there's no problem to ask them everything about Spain or Barcelona ... The price is reasonable and it's a good choice to stay at if want a balance between the price and quality."
"My partner and I stayed here for a week in September. The staff were friendly, including the breakfast staff and chambermaid ... This was my first time in Barcelona so I can't compare with other accommodations, but I felt like this was probably as good a deal as we could get for the money."
"We were not in anyway disappointed. We chose to avoid the La Rambla area for noise reasons, but wanted to be within walking distance. Excellent location in Gracia district. Great shopping, close to Fontana subway station and a good walk to La Rambla. We had an interior room overlooking the courtyard. which was very quiet. We did not eat at the hotel so cannot comment on breakfast. This hotel while dated, was clean and comfortable and good value for the Euro charged and a great safe location. Would recommend."

"I am pleased to say that this hotel is every bit as impressive now as it was 5 years ago ... The hotel is friendly, some rooms have kitchenette facilities which is very handy for families, they are visited daily by the maid and kept very clean, the prices are reasonable and you can use the internet in the lobby for free-no questions asked. It is a little out of the centre of town but only a walk of 20 mins or so and its literally one minute to the underground. If you are a family looking for a nice quiet place close to the town centre, you are unlikely to do better than the Silver Aparthotel."
"The room was excellent ... Next time I'll be in Barcelona (as I hope there will be a next time - WHAT A CITY!!!) I'll definitely book the Silver again."
