“Best Hotel EVER!!!”
Reviewed 16 July 2013

This was my fourth trip to Barcelona and my third at this place. I won't stay anywhere else! Why? Simple: The people, the location, rooms with a terrace.

First, the people. The staff, and I mean the entire staff) truly make you feel like you are part of a family when you're a guest there. They aren't intruding, but they are very warm and you feel they truly want to do everything they can to make you feel good. The cleaning staff do a fantastic job keeping the place very clean.

Second, the location. If you want to be in the middle of all the tourists, then stay somewhere else. But if you want to be within a 5-10 minute train ride to everything, but stay in a place full of culture, restaurants, shops, then this is it. It is a slice of life (albeit bohemian - think NYC's Lower East Side circa 1985 [minus the drugs]) and you could spend days discovering Gaudi masterpieces right there, such as Casa Vicenz which is behind the hotel and Park Guell which is a walk away.

Third, rooms with a terrace. Tired from walking, but still want to feel you are part of the city? get a room with a terrace and relax with a glass of wine. Just lovely.

For those wanting posh furniture, this is not the place for you. The furniture can be a bit worn, but everything is VERY clean. It is just an older building, so keep that in mind.

Like I mentioned before, I won't stay anywhere else! Thanks Hotel Silver, I hope to see you again next year!

We stayed here for about 3 nights and had a very pleasent stay. Short walk to the metro to get into the city centre, well equipped little rooms that were cleaned daily, staff were friendly. Supermarkets, cafes and a few little shops close by if needed. I would definitely stay here again!

We stayed here for three nights in june. The hotel is conveniently located near Fontana Station on the green L3 line. We took the Aerobus to Catalunya and the subway from there. Takes about 40 minutes in total.
We had a room on the 4th floor, streetside, which was a bit noisy at night because of the (drunk) tourists who were singing songs outside. Can't fault the hotel for it, but if you have the chance book a room at the back. The room itself was simple but clean. The kitchen was convenient as there are a lot of supermarkets nearby.
Hotel staff is very friendly!

The hotel is a little distant to the Rambla and Placa Catalunya, but nevertheless just a few minutes away by metro (Tip: Buy a multi-trip card). It is located in the heart of the Gracia area, which has a lot to offer in its own right. The location also made a visit to Güell Park a pleasant walk.
The hotel is located in a rather quiet street, and if you ask for a room facing the back yard and a little, pleasant garden, there is no noise at all.
The hotel staff was marvellous, solving every problem with a smile and a remark like "No problem, we want you to feel at home". That's the kind of attitude we love.
The room's kitchenette was very well-equipped and well-functioning, though we really didn't understand the restrictions on the use of the stove. These restrictions did not cause any problems anyway. We had all our breakfasts and even some lunches in the room as supermarket, baker's and greengrocer's were just around the corner.
Our only negative experiences were 1) the window between the bathroom and the bedroom , which purpose was totally unclear to us, and 2) the wobbly bed, which nearly threw one of us out if the other one turned around in his/her sleep and therefore kept us much awake during the night.

Dear Mr John Lackland
I was delighted that you enjoyed your recent stay at Aparthotel Silver. I was pleased that you found the hotel and service to your liking and that you felt at home.
About the window between the bathroom and the room , it’s only in a few rooms, not in all the hotel rooms.We did that so it could enter natural light in the bathroom. In behalf your bed, if you could contact us by mail, so we can know your room number, to check this bed and arrange that.
Please do come and visit us again soon.
My kindest regards,

Room is neither big or small, but great to use thanks to the good design.

Kitchen is well equip and we can easily cook our own taste of breakfast everyday. And the freezer is also great for us to get some cold drink easily. The best thing is they did have the room service so everyday we came, the room is neat. And also, they provide some oil and salt and pepper for cooking, but from the third day, they did not replenish the oil for us, a little shortcoming but it did not trouble us too much.

The bathroom is small but still good to use, and they also replenish the soap and shower liquid everyday.

Sleep quality is superb cause our room is in the end of the corridor and face to the backyard. Totally no noise at night and the backyard view is also good to see every morning.

The reception man at night is a SUPER gentalmen and did help us a lot. Also, he welcome us back every night with his best smile which made us feel much more better.

And the location is just great. 2 minutes walk from the L3 station Fontana and you can get to many of the place you want with that line such as Las Ramblas, Casa Mila, or even Nou Camp and so on. But you won't see crowded over there and you can find some store or super market easily too.

Room Tip: Try to get a room at 3rd or 2nd floor and facing the back yard, you won't regrat.

We chose this hotel for many reasons. The room rates are very reasonable for the facilities you get, the location is superb and a minute away from the metro, Gaudi's first house is literally around the corner and the surrounding restaurants and nightlife are frequented by locals and get good reviews on this site.

We stayed for 6 nights towards the end of June. On arrival the staff are very friendly and helpful. You will be given a photocopy of your passports so you don't have to carry around the originals. And, if you're English like we are with little to no ability to talk Catalan, the staff speak very good English.

The rooms are spacious and well furnished and the kitchen area is very useful, even if you just wish to make a decent coffee in the morning. There are a couple of super markets just around the corner, very handy for buying the prerequisites. My only gripe about the room is that the sink is very shallow and it takes a little practice not to bounce the water out and straight down your trousers.

We enjoy walking so we made our way into town and around the city on foot for most of the holiday. But I will warn you that it is a fair trek to Barri Gòtic (over 3km). But a stroll down Rambla Catalunya, which is on the way, is a must if you enjoy a good coffee and croissant.

The other option, that we started to use more often towards the end of the holiday, is Fontana Metro station which is literally around the corner. This station has good connections to the rest of the Metro system, RENFE and the city, all being only a few minutes away.

We didn't use the cafeteria so I cannot comment, but the garden area is very useful if you wish to feed a nicotine craving before 10pm. The hotel itself was well furnished and nicely decorated and the rooms are cleaned to a good standard daily. I have seen the previous review about noise from the street, so I asked for a room at the back of the hotel and this is what I was given. You have free WIFI in your room which is incredibly handy.

I cannot stress how much the friendly and helpful staff made all the difference to our holiday. The personal service you receive far exceeds what you can expect in the best of hotels in the UK. We will be going back to Barcelona (six days cannot do it justice) and we will be staying here.

We stayed at this hotel during our recent trip to Barcelona to watch MotoGP. We found the hotel to be clean and comfortable. We were given a room on the front of the hotel which was very noisy even with the shutter down, so you may want to ask for a room at the back of the hotel if you are a light sleeper like me. The facilities at the hotel were good with a lovely garden area at the back of the hotel where we sat and had a drink one evening. There was also free internet. The hotel is a 2 minute walk from Fontana Metro station so we could be at La Rambla in minutes. I cannot comment on the breakfast as we did not eat at the hotel. The only negative thing I have to say is that we were disturbed one day first of all by a member of the hotel coming into our room whilst we were in and then the receptionist ringing the phone to say the maintenance man needed to come into the room to fix the cooker, which we never used! This was at such an inconvenient time!! We don't expect to be disturbed when we are in our room. All in all it was a pleasant stay but spoilt by us being disturbed.

Room Tip: Choose a room at the back of the hotel as the noise from street at the front of the hotel disturbed...
