As one of Europe’s most popular tourist destinations, Barcelona is suitably equipped with a vast range of accommodation options. Everyone is catered for in the Catalan capital, from budget backpackers to seekers of the utmost luxury. The biggest difficulty in choosing a Barcelona hotel is the sheer variety available.
One way of deciding where to stay is by finding a district that appeals to you. This is a large city made up of distinct neighbourhoods, all of which are home to varying numbers of Barcelona hotels.
The most densely populated touristy parts of the city are around the Gothic Quarter and the famous thoroughfare of Las Ramblas. Indeed, many of the hotels in the Gothic Quarter still boast architectural remnants of their medieval origins. For those wanting to be in the heart of the action, an excellent choice would be the 4-star Hotel Montecarlo Barcelona, which is located at the top of Las Ramblas, and has received superb reviews on tripadvisor.com.
Elsewhere, another popular area to find a hotel in Barcelona is the Olympic Port. The modern port area boasts some of the city’s most vibrant nightlife and best restaurants, as well as being close to the beach. It is also the location for one of Barcelona’s finest hotels, the 5-star Arts Ritz Carlton, which is just one block from the port, and has also received excellent guest reviews.
You will not have a hard time finding Barcelona accommodation within easy reach of the Muntanya de Montjuïc, a popular hill that offers impressive views of the city. A short walk away, located on Plaça Espanya, is the 4-star AC Diplomatic, which boasts a rooftop terrace with its own dramatic vistas.
Speaking of scenery, for something truly outlandish, but only if your budget stretches far enough, you could always sample the 5-star Gran Hotel La Florida, a stunning designer hotel that offers panoramic views of the city.
