The upper-middle-range Splendom Suites Pau Claris is made up of six apartments housed in a modern residential building on a busy street in Eixample -- it's about a five-minute walk to the Passeig de Gracia metro station. The bright one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments are stylishly furnished, with full kitchens and top-notch tech that includes iHome sets, smart TVs, iPod docks, DVD players on request, and free Wi-Fi. The rooftop swimming pool and terrace are plus points, and there's turndown and laundry service -- but the gym is tiny and its limited equipment could use an upgrade. Travelers seeking more hotel-style amenities could try the nearby Mirror Barcelona, which has sleek rooms and a small but stylish rooftop pool with city views.
Attractive, spacious apartments offering an alternative to local hotels
Using bioclimatic architecture, the building housing Splendom Suites Pau Claris has been designed for energy efficiency. Staying in these apartments is more like living in a private residence than a hotel. There are no public areas, aside from the chic, streamlined rooftop pool and terrace. The wood-plank sundeck here, set with metallic loungers, gives a sunny spot to take in city views. These spacious apartments draw tourists on extended stays and business travelers who are working in Barcelona for a few weeks. They are especially family-friendly, with full kitchens and family kits that include high chairs, cots, additional cribs, child-protection bars, and strollers.
Bright, spacious apartments with contemporary decor and full kitchens
The apartments at Splendom Suites Pau Claris range from one to three bedrooms, and have double beds and sofa beds. The three-bedroom apartment measures 968 square feet and can sleep up to seven people. Some apartments have terraces. Throughout, the apartments are bright and decorated in a simple yet appealing style. The white walls and light-beige tile floors reflect the natural sunlight coming through the many windows, creating pleasant, sunny spaces. The eclectic furniture is kept to a minimum, adding to the overall expansive feel. Black-lacquered dining room tables are paired with chairs in navy-blue velour, while gray velour sofas are fronted by metallic, industrial-style coffee tables bordered with rivets. Bedrooms can be snug, with the double beds taking up most of the space, but sparse simple furniture help them feel equally roomy. Stylish copper lamps decorate each side of the bed, and colorful batik-style pillows add a hit of color.
The kitchens are exceptionally well-equipped, with full-size refrigerators (stocked with alcoholic drinks), stove-tops, electric ovens, microwaves, Lavazza or Nespresso coffee machines, kettles, toasters, juicers, washing machines, and dishwashers, as well as cookware, dishware, and cutlery. Modern and tiled in white, the bathrooms have stylish marble countertops and are fitted with shower/tub combos, bidets, magnifying mirrors, hairdryers, and Molton Brown toiletries. All the apartments are air-conditioned and come with top-notch tech, such as 42-inch flat-screen TVs in the living rooms, and 32-inch TVs in the master bedrooms, DVD players, iHome sets, iPod docking stations with speakers, and free Wi-Fi. Other handy amenities include safes, irons, and ironing boards. Family kits that include highchairs, cribs, cots, child-protection bars, strollers, and toys are also available.
Rooftop swimming pool, gym, luggage storage, turndown service, and free Wi-Fi
Compared with other apartment-style accommodations in Barcelona, Splendom Suites Pau Claris offers more hotel-style amenities and services. A highlight is the rectangular rooftop swimming pool and adjacent sundeck set with a few metallic loungers. There's also a small gym, but the limited equipment could use an upgrade. Luggage storage, turndown service, and twice-daily housekeeping are also available at no additional cost. Laundry, dry-cleaning, and ironing are available for a fee. The hotel provides on-site paid parking, and there's also an airport transfer service and personal assistant service for a fee. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the property.
