Zaragoza is an elegant city, packed with grand churches and cathedrals, a charming historic quarter, lots of green spaces and plenty of fascinating museums. Whichever part of the city you choose to stay in, we’ve rounded up some of the best Airbnbs for you to choose from, including a large historic apartment, a secluded family villa and two flats with jaw-dropping views.
Apartment + Garage with views in historical centre
This cute little Casco Histórico apartment is light, clean and modern, and offers spectacular views of the towers of the baroque church of Santiago from its private terrace. It can sleep five in two bedrooms plus a sofa bed in the lounge, so could be great for families. There’s an open-plan kitchen and dining room for use, and it even includes breakfast.
This industrial design apartment is situated close to the centre, in the tapas district known as ‘El Tubo’, so you’ll find plenty of places to eat and drink nearby. With a bare brick feature wall, exposed pipes and metal and wood furniture, it’s stylish and contemporary. It can sleep four in one bedroom and sofa bed in the lounge, and even has its own turf-covered balcony. A chic bathroom, stylish coffee maker and TV with Netflix are just a few of the added amenities.
Located just west of the historic heart of the city, this apartment lies just a 15-minute walk from the famous Basilica of Our Lady of Pilar. Walk the other way and you’ll find the impressive Aljafería Palace. Sleeping four guests in one double room and one sofa bed, it’s decorated in an eclectic style, where bohemian meets vintage meets Mexican. There are bold-coloured feature walls, multicoloured rugs and antique lamps and mirrors. There’s a small, colourfully tiled kitchen, and a cosy living and dining room.
This contemporary three-bedroom flat is called ‘the lookout of Zaragoza’ and for good reason. Situated just west of the centre, it’s located on the 16th floor of a modern apartment block. Here, Zaragoza is literally at your feet and you can enjoy unrivalled views out across the historic centre and beyond. As well as the views, it offers Scandi-chic design in white and pastel shades, and a sparkling modern kitchen.
Another apartment offering a stunning view is this sleek two-bedroom place located right in the historic centre of the city. It has a modern and contemporary style, and can sleep six in the two twin rooms and the double sofa bed in the lounge. The undisputed highlight of the apartment, however, is the huge stylish terrace, offering panoramic views of the Basilica of Our Lady of Pilar. Oh, and the outdoor communal pool, free parking space and kids playground don’t hurt either.
This spacious one-bedroom apartment is affectionately called ‘the balcony of Pilar’ because it’s located so near to the famous Basilica of Our Lady of Pilar that you can enjoy a close-up view of its domes and towers from the terrace. It’s housed in a building that is over 120 years old, however it still enjoys modern commodities and a contemporary interior. It sleeps four in one double room and one sofa bed.
This secluded luxury villa is located in an urbanisation just outside of the city and is close to Zaragoza airport. It’s perfect for large families or groups of friends, sleeping a total of seven guests in three bedrooms. It’s best to hire a car if staying here though, as it’s a 15-minute drive into the centre. With a huge garden, football pitch, private swimming pool, outdoor oven and even horses, it’s well worth it. But that’s just the outside. The inside is sleek, elegant and stylishly decorated with design-conscious furniture.
This gorgeous spacious apartment is located in the Casco Histórico, very close to Zaragoza Cathedral and the Basilica of Our Lady of Pilar. Sleeping eight guests, it comprises three bedrooms and three bathrooms. The apartment is housed in a 19th-century building, perfectly fusing together the old and new with its bare brick walls, wooden beams and old shutters complementing the clean lines, modern kitchen and bathrooms.
