Bottom Line

The Aspasios Rambla Catalunya Suites consists of 24 spacious apartments decorated in a chic, bright, modern style, with either terraces or balconies. Centrally located on a major street in Eixample, it's within walking distance of several tourist attractions, and the Passeig de Gracia metro station is about a five-minute walk away. Apartments have top-notch fully equipped kitchens, flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, and free Wi-Fi. These are self-catered apartments, and there's no breakfast service, fitness facilities, or pool. Travelers who prefer more typical hotel amenities might want to compare rates with the nearby NH Collection Barcelona Calderon, which has a rooftop pool, a restaurant, and a wellness center, but in-room Wi-Fi comes with a fee.

Oyster Hotel Review

Aspasios Rambla Catalunya Suites

Scene

Apartment-style accommodations, but few public spaces aside from an attractive terrace

Located in an eight-story apartment building on a busy street corner, Aspasios Rambla Catalunya Suites does not present a typical hotel atmosphere. The heavy glass entrance doors open to a marble stairwell, where there's also a small elevator, Common spaces are limited: A brick-paved terrace, complete with wicker couches and chairs and a ping-pong table, gives a spot to linger in fresh air around several potted plants. And a cozy seating area by the office gives a cheery introduction to the property, with colorful tile floors, dangling pendant lights, and a few cream-colored couches to collapse on. Given their size, the apartments are especially popular with families and groups.

Rooms

Spacious, bright apartments with full kitchens 

Ideal for families and small groups, the 24 spacious apartments at Aspasios Rambla Catalunya Suites can sleep from three to eight people. The largest unit is the Luxury Apartment, which has four bedrooms (two doubles and two singles) and two bathrooms. All the apartments are exceptionally bright, thanks to their high ceilings, crisp white walls, and hardwood floors finished in warm tones. The design is sophisticated, with simple, streamlined furniture, a neutral color palette of whites, browns, and beiges, and framed photographic prints decorating the walls. 

The modern kitchens are large and include full-size refrigerators with separate freezer compartments, stovetops with four burners, microwaves, Nespresso machines, kettles, juicers, toasters, and dishwashers, as well as pots, pans, crockery, and cutlery. The Top Floor Suite has an oven.

The air-conditioned apartments also come with flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, and free Wi-Fi. There are also electronic safes tucked away in the wardrobes, and irons and ironing boards.

Bathrooms are sleek and decorated for the most part in the same white and beige tones -- but the bathroom of the Top Floor Suite has slightly dated mosaic tiles in bright colors. Most bathrooms are fitted with spacious walk-in showers, while some apartments (such as the Top Floor) have shower/tub combos. All have large mirrors, hairdryers, and toiletries. Some guests have complained about ambient street noise at night.
