I would like to know from those that have visited Barcelona whether they prefer to stay in an apartment or a hotel and why they choose one over the other?

All the best,

I have not been in Barcelona but in general I don't like hotels.

There really is no one way to go. It's best to use all sorts of accommodations, depending on the circumstances and what you want to accomplish on a trip. In Australia, l like to use serviced apartments, especially if I'm staying awhile. Some hotels there have kitchenettes. I like accommodations near public transportation. But I'll stay in lodging in remote areas if they offer something special, such as spectacular scenery, or plentiful wildlife. I like and use bed & breakfasts, particularly if the owners are known for exceptional hospitality. I also stay in hostels (I'm a life member of Hostelling International). So celebrate choice. Consider them all. Pick the ones that best suit your needs and desires.

For me it depends from the company. When with family I choose hotels because of the cleaning service and breakfast. When with friends we choose apartments, so that we can all be together, stay late talking and drinking and share a livingroom instead of a hotel lobby or restaurant.

I prefer Apartment because i am a privacy seeker, moreover it is less expensive and give me homely atmosphere.

I prefer Aparthotels. Have you not heard of them? There is no need to concern yourself about the legality of them which is not the case with private apartment rentals.
