Hotels in Spain
Hotels in Spain run the gamut from luxury beach resorts and historic hotels, often in landmarks like castles and monasteries, to family-run B&B's and quaint pensions. Unlike many European countries where the prices are high no matter what, it is generally easy to find accommodation to suit your budget in Spain.
An alternative to Spain hotels is to find a room or bed in someone's private home. Look out for signs that read habitaciones or comas that indicate cheap B&B style lodgings. Hostels can be a great place to stay for students and backpackers who would like to meet other travelers during their stay.
Some of the best hotels in Spain are paradores, which offer unforgettable lodgings in converted castles and monasteries at relatively cheap prices compared to five-star hotels. Often set in historic buildings, paradors are a wonderful way to explore the country.
Another option, particularly in rural or coastal areas, is to rent an apartment or villa. This affords travellers more freedom than staying in many of the hotels in Spain.
The Market Hotel is conveniently located at the border of L'Eixample and El Raval. Set in an early-20th-century town house with four-poster beds and Indian teak furniture, this affordable option is a great value.
In a city where even the most luxurious accommodations tend toward the dowdy, Villa Soro offers a much-needed dose of modern luxury.
Close to the University of Barcelona, this design-minded property in the Eixample neighborhood is also close to Casa Mila and La Sagrada Familia.
