Where to Stay in Barcelona?
Barcelona has plenty of accommodation to choose from, especially high-end hotels, meaning it is usually possible to find a cheap hotel or last-minute deal. However, given Barcelona’s popularity as a fashionable city-break destination it is sensible to book ahead, especially in peak times.
The Barri Gòtic (Gothic Quarter) at the heart of Barcelona's old city is a vibrant place with a good selection of accommodation, from cheap hotels suitable for travellers on a shoestring to more luxurious options. Its fashionable neighbour, El Raval also has some good budget hotel options.
With its fine Modernist buildings, upmarket L'Eixample is the home of many of Barcelona's more expensive restaurants and hotels. If you are looking for a waterfront hotel, head to La Barceloneta where there is a sandy beach and a selection of hotels to choose from.
Barcelona Accommodation Options
There is accommodation to suit all budgets in Barcelona. From small, affordable pensiones (independent hotels) and youth hostels to four- and five-star international chains and quirky, design-orientated boutique hotels.
Room rates vary seasonally and according to demand, but do your research and you will be able to get a cheap hotel deal in Barcelona. If you are looking for good value, try one of the city’s pensiones or hostales.
Also increasingly popular, especially for longer stays, are self-catering holiday apartments and “apartment hotels”. These offer the chance to save money on meals out, and are a particularly good choice for families. There are also several campsites a few miles from the city.
