The city of Barcelona was completely renovated for the 1992 Summer Olympics and since then, it has become one of the world’s most popular destinations. The capital of Catalonia offers travelers a wide range of hotel accommodation from luxury hotels to hostels and one-star hotels.
If you travel to Barcelona for leisure, we recommend looking for a hotel in Eixample, the Gothic Quarter or Plaça Catalunya. If we had to be even more specific, we would choose a hotel on Passeig de Gracia.
If you also want to go to the beach, we suggest you look for accommodation near La Barceloneta, where you’ll be able to combine sightseeing with sunbathing without having to use the city’s public transport. The Olympic Port, which is a little further away, is another option to keep in mind, especially if you want to discover Barcelona’s nightlife.
The areas that we discourage the most are El Raval and Las Ramblas. Although these two areas are very touristy during the day, the atmosphere changes greatly at night-time and these two thoroughfares become a little shabby.
The price of a double room in an average-priced hotel in the city center is around 50€ (54 US Dollars and 42 pounds). If you are willing to pay a little more, you can find hotels with good reviews that are situated in trendy neighborhoods. If you want something more exclusive, Barcelona offers 5 star hotels for a little over 100€ a night.
To find the best deals, we recommend our hotel search engine, where you’ll find the best price guaranteed and discounts of up to 75%.

If you travel to Barcelona by yourself or if you’re on a tight budget, you might prefer to stay in a hostel. The city has numerous youth hostels for 10€ ($11 or £8) a night.
