Reviewed 9 May 2014

Stayed in a larger room on the top floor and glad I opted for the larger room. Huge balcony - couple of sun beds and even a clothes drying rack, over looking a flower wall into the distant madness below. Very comfortable queen sized bed. Tiny kitchenette which we didn't use. Good sized bathroom, although I always find the freestyle shower head hoses a bit of a challenge if you don't want water everywhere. Quiet room. Slept like a log and I'm typically a light sleeper. Air con effective if a bit noisy at full throttle. Shutters to keep the light & heat out. Side street location actually fairly quiet and 3 min walk to metro. Good Nearby tapas and drinking options if not up to a trip into town. Breakfast range not extensive but adequate and everything was kept topped up. Pleasant staff and my Spanish is non existent.

Stayed: May 2014, travelled as a couple

I write my opinion until now because I have a few destinations and I can compare already.
(Greece, Vienna, Barcelona, London, Paris, Rome, Malaga, Seville, Cordoba, Granada ...)
Vienna and Barcelona are the best cities for me. Gibraltar is the worst.

Aparthotel Silver - great location, fantastic staff. Thank you Dafne! Thank you Sandra!
The best breakfast of all the places we visited.
Note: The trip was before 2013, but there is no option...

First off the location is great. The hotel is a couple of blocks from a metro station and Casa Vicens. It is also a 20 minute walk to Park Guell. There is also a market within walking distance, a couple of bakeries and lots of great restaurants close by (eg. Macchina Pasta Bar and SMS delicious).

Second, the staff are fantastic. Everyone I interacted with seemed to genuinely want me to have a great stay and an enjoyable time in their city. They also pay attention to details. For example, on Saint Jordi's Day they gave guests a rose. That was a nice touch.


* The only issue I had was when a noisy pair stayed the night in a room on my floor. Not the hotel's fault.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the garden that way you don't have to deal with noise from the street.

Stayed 3 nights and would not hesitate to stay here again.
Friendly, efficient & helpful staff helped to make our short stay an enjoyable one. Location for us was ideal as we have family living nearby but the location is very convenient for anyone visiting Las Ramblas, the port area or in fact many of the regular Barcelona " must visit " sights & places.
A very convenient underground station ( Fontana ) is only yards away, plus a regular bus service and if you like to walk, it's only 25 minutes or so to the Placa de Catalunya.
There are quite a few restaurants and bars in the area which are cheaper than in the area of the Ramblas and of course the Silver is considerably cheaper than the hotels in the vicinity of theRamblas too
Breakfast in our opinion ( four of us ! ) was also good value, with enough choice to suit most tastes and availablet until 11 am which is a nice touch.
All in all, very good value and we would certainly stay here again.
Special thanks to Daphne & Elizabeth ! !
Very best regards,
Paul & Pat Reed

Room Tip: Just ask, if you prefer a higher room, garden view etc !

I enjoyed very much the friendly, helpful staff. The rooms are clean and furnished well. Large bathroom with a good size bath. Large balcony with table and chairs.. and sunbeds. The hotel in a very good area, near to the metro and many shops. Walking distance for sightseeing.

Room Tip: 602 at the front with sun entering in a morning, nice big balcony to sit outside.

Me and my wife stayed in Silver for 12 days in the beginning of April 2014. Comparing to some other Europe hotels of the same level - it was a perfect choice for a value of money. Specially if you're staying at hotel just to spend a night.
Location: 30-min walk to the center of Barcelona - Plaza Catalunya, street leads straight to the city main avenue, or - 1-min walk to Metro and 8-min trip by train. So it's comfortable in any case. 35 euro drive on taxi from the airport. Hotel's street is very calm at night-time, it could be noisy only on Fridays.
Room: small but cosy, with a cooking facilities (so you can cook if you want to, especially if you travel with kids). But the walls are so thin, get ready to hear some noise at the night from your neighbours :)
Staff: very polite and friendly, ready to help at any time.
Wi-Fi: free and fast in the room, PC in the lobby ready to print anything you need.

Some minor things to improve:
- housekeeper never cleaned the plates (even we left her tips every day), but may be she's not supposed to do this
- breakfast in hotel - a very usual for Europe (cheese, ham, youghurt, fruits, croissants, etc), but could be much better with a few hot dishes (omelette, porridge, sausages). Lack of the hot dishes prevent us from having a breakfast in hotel every day.
- wi-fi is not stable at the bar area, it's not good for the morning coffee time
- it could be great to have more TV channels in russian language, not just the only one news channel.

Would recommend to all!

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor to avoid street noise during the day-time.

I am delighted to hear that you had an enjoyable experience and that you found the staff to be great.Comments like yours encourage us to continue working for the happiness of our customers.
The housekeeper cleans every day the room and the bathroom, the guest usually cleans their plates. But if you prefer that the maid clean your your dishes, let me know the next time you come and I’ll talk to her.
We’ll study to introduce warm dishes for breakfast.
We’re installing this week an additional antenna in the breakfast area, so the wifi could go as fast as in the rest of the hotel.
We’ll study to add more russian channels in the future as we have many russian customers.

Thank you for your personal recommendation and I hope that we can welcome you back to Aparthotel Silver, your home in Barcelona , very soon.

Overall, a very nice stay! very clean, affordable for Barcelona and convenient.
The metro station was just five minutes away, in a very nice neighbourhood. However, the alley of the hotel was not very nice, nut it did not let us down.
The staff were really helpful, and always welcoming us with a smile! Higly reccomended!
