Hotels in Barcelona

Want to be pampered? Barcelona knows how to impress visitors. As the premier tourist destination in Spain, you may choose from the skyscraper hotels of starchitects that have changed the skyline, or the architect-designer teams that have restored historic properties in astonishing hotels, along with dining in the superstar attractions of hotel restaurants.

Hotels in Barri Gotic and along La Ramble compete with newer lodgings in the Eixample or west along Diagonal, where waterfront monoliths set the standard for upscale hotels. Many Eixample hotels occupy restored late 19th or 20th century town houses, mixing style and luxury with a sense of place.

Hotel Strategy

Reserve well in advance for June's bookings. Specify whether you prefer two beds or one double bed. Single rooms can be fairly small, so paying for a single occupancy in a double room may be worth the extra cost. 

Hotels listed below are top-rated. Prices may vary, and can go up or down depending on many factors. 

You can map the location of each hotel with the venue, which is located at: Casa Convalescència, Sant Antoni Mª Claret, 171, Barcelona.
