The travel game has changed drastically in the last few years. Holiday goers are seeking more luxury, more privacy and more freedom in their travel and that also applies to their travel accommodation. With the introduction of private hosting websites such as Airbnb, Flipkey and Roomorama the idea of hiring private residences has become more and more popular. It’s a welcome change to the usual shoebox sized hotel rooms and introduces a whole new genre of travel.
We decided to try the theory out on our last visit to Barcelona. We enlisted the help of the ‘Izaka Group’ who specialise in the management of independent luxury holiday apartments. As a result, we were introduced to the Angla Luxury Apartments.
They consists of six modern and exclusive apartments completely renovated with exquisite design, modern amenities and comfort. This, together with the convenient location just 200meters from Plaça Catalunya square and 90 meters from Passeig de Gràcia, make it the ideal starting point to enjoy the best of Barcelona. With an area of 90sqm, two bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen and a convertible second bedroom, the apartment can comfortably accommodate up to four guests.
The apartment has WIFI and housekeeping service included every day; it also includes a delicious breakfast basket a la carte, which is found at the apartment upon arrival. The high ceilings and large windows flood the space with natural light and warmth creating a very homely atmosphere.
Additionally, the entire apartment is fitted with double glazed windows and electronic blackout blinds that allow guests to slumber completely undisturbed through the night (or day).
It was incredibly refreshing to experience a city like Barcelona from such a beautiful and spacious base. The freedom to come and go as you please, the ability to live in a home away home is priceless when you are travelling.
