If you are in barcelona more than 5 days, you may prefer to stay in an apartment. Here you have the opportunity to go to the local market just round the corner, Mercado Santa Catherina and buy fresh seafood, meats of superior quality and fruit and vegetables. All at reasonable prices, and the atmosphere is fantastic. Take your shopping home and make the most delicious fish stew, steaks or whatever you feel for. The apartments are very nice, practical and located on a quiet little square with local atmosphere.

I came across this hotel with a little cafe in Tullinsgade Copenhagen. It is undoubtedly the smallest hotel in the world. Only 1 room, located on the 1st floor and are equipped with double bed from Royal Eden and Geismar linen, shower and a minibar with only the best. In addition, TV and dock for your iPhone and free wi-fi. Breakfast is included in the price and can be enjoyed at Café Granola Værnedamsvej, a stone’s throw from the hotel. You also have the opportunity to have served breakfast in your room. The price is 1900 DKK/night. It is without doubt the most innovative and spectacular hotel in Copenhagen. A crazy idea to make an incredibly small cafe with associated hotel consisting of only one room. But nice that there’s room for a little madness. In the café you can get a great cappuccino, perhaps the best in Copenhagen and beautiful butter croissants. Everything is served with a smile.
