What should you pay attention to when looking for a hotel in Barcelona?

Location of your hotel

When looking for a hotel in Barcelona, location is one of the most important considerations for many. Where is your hotel located and which neighborhood is pleasant to stay in?

  • Do you want to be centrally located so that you can easily discover the most important sights? Then look for a hotel with a central location and good transport connections nearby. For example, consider a hotel on or near the Ramblas or choose one of the pleasant neighborhoods in the old city: the Gothic Quarter (barrio Gótico), El Born or the central part of the Eixample district.
  • Planning to go to the beach a lot? Then opt for a hotel by the sea or in the immediate vicinity of the coast in the neighborhoods of La Barceloneta, Vila Olímpica or the former industrial district of Poblenou, which is a little further from the center.
  • The modernist residential area of Eixample is filled with hotels and you are close to Gaudí’s works. You will find numerous sights here, the transport connections are generally good and there are plenty of restaurants.
  • Have you been to Barcelona before and looking for local life? Then the Gràcia and Poble-sec districts are a good option. There are several special hotels here and these neighborhoods are less overrun by tourists and characterized by the ‘village feel’.

Is it easy to get to your hotel from the airport?

Most people who go on a city trip to Barcelona travel by plane. It’s comfortable if you can easily get to your hotel from El Prat airport by bus, train or metro. If you plan to take a taxi, it doesn’t matter much where your hotel is located.

Your budget?

In general, the further away from the center, the cheaper your hotel. For example, on the outskirts of the city you can find luxurious 4-star hotels that offer rooms at a reasonable price.

Another tip to save money on your hotel in Barcelona: don’t go during the high season and book your hotel on time.


Do you have your own bathroom, is there air conditioning (not unimportant in the summer) and is there a swimming pool? Most hotels have WiFi these days, but not all hotels also offer WiFi in the rooms. Are you coming by car and do you want to park? Or are you planning to rent a bicycle and want to store it indoors? Are the installations child-friendly? These are also things to take into account when looking for the best hotel in Barcelona. Put your wishes on a list and take them into account when booking a hotel.

Specific wishes

Do you have difficulty walking, does your pet travel along during your trip to Barcelona or are you coming with a large family and are you looking for a family room? Check in advance whether your hotel of choice meets your specific wishes.
