Review Splendom Suites Aparthotel Barcelona

Page Content

Splendom Suites
Splendom Suites Aparthotel offer something a little bit different - apartments in the centre of the city with hotel style services. Each room includes a bedroom and living area, plus a small kitchen. In contrast to other companies offering similar services, Splendom Suites are decorated in a modern style and appear to have been renovated very recently.

Splendom Suites Aparthotel are located at the centre of Eixample. They are in ten minutes walking distance of some of Barcelona's most attractive destinations - including Rambla de Catalunya and Passeig de Gràcia. Some visitors to the city may prefer accommodation closer to the heart of the action, however the location may appeal to those who enjoy a peaceful location, with the tourist spots within easy reach.

The hotel's lobby area is small and cosy - almost like a living room in a home. There is a white fireplace with couches and clear plastic design chairs surrounding it. There is even a small Nespresso machine for coffees. The small office-style front desk sits behind this and friendly staff are eager to help.

The hotel will appeal to families, with rooms that accommodate up to four people. Facilities also include a free 'Friendly Family Kit' with high chairs, cots and baby changing tables.


Hotel Facilities

The Aparthotel does not have a pool, fitness centre or spa.

The aparthotel does not have a restaurant. However, it has a small cafeteria in its reception area, where there is a Nespresso machine and a small selection of crisps and snacks on sale. The Aparthotel also offers the 'Welcome Pack'. This means that, on request, drinks and food can be placed in the fridge in your room for your arrival.

It is also possible to request specific utensils for the kitchen in your room. These can include items such as woks and chopsticks. Also, remember not to chuck away any food that is remaining in your fridge at the end of the stay.
