Hotels in Barcelona

Lodging options in Barcelona are as eclectic as the city itself. From sleek, modern buildings and chain hotels (Best Western, Tryp) to restored 19th and 20th century townhouses of the Gothic Quarter and wallet-friendly youth hostels, hotels in Barcelona cater to every budget and personality. Prices rise during the peak travel seasons, so plan ahead. The more affordable hotel options can usually be found outside the city’s tourist zones, which are easy to access thanks to good public transportation. Here are two of our favorite hotels in Barcelona:

For a taste of Barcelona’s contemporary luxury, the Claris hotel in Passeig de Gracia is an excellent choice. With a rooftop pool, a terrace restaurant, and Roman and Egyptian art in its rooms, it’s one of the top-rated Barcelona hotels.

Over in the trendy Raval district, meanwhile Barcelo Raval represents the city’s edgier, most design-forward side, with in-room iPod docks and Nespresso coffee makers, and futuristic decor all over the property – think lime green walls and a “double skin” facade, made with dark glass and stainless steel mesh.
