Thanks to the curated art and industrial furniture, this home has much more character than you might expect in an aparthotel. The mixture of wood, leather, and metal gives it a feeling more like a trendy loft conversion – and that's before you get to the stunning view. An open-plan living area includes a cosy seating space, dining table and a well-equipped kitchen, while the bedroom is comfortable and bright – there's even a work desk and a little balcony to get some fresh air each morning. Elsewhere in the building, there's a shared roof terrace for taking in some of that Spanish sunshine and a pool to cool down in. Set in the heart of Barcelona's Modernist area, there's plenty to see nearby and you'll be surrounded by great places for eating and shopping.
Home truths: * The entrance to the building is a bit hard to spot – you'll need to keep an eye out

* The host has several near-identical homes in the building, so minor design details, as well as the floor you'll be staying on, may vary
*There's paid street parking in this area
*A cot is available if you're travelling with a little one – let the host know in advance
