It goes without saying that there is no shortage of hotels in this beautiful Mediterranean city, but not all are the right choice when it comes to group travel.
When you’re arranging accommodation for a private group of travellers, it’s important to find a hotel which doesn’t just fit within your budget but which also is located in the right part of the city so you can see and do everything you have planned. Here, we offer you our expert advice about where to stay during your trip.
The Eixample Neighbourhood
One of the best places to stay in Barcelona is the Eixample Barrio (or neighbourhood). People often believe that the name means “example”, but it really means “extension” or “expansion”. Constructed outside the original city walls, this area was designed to connect the old city of Barcelona with surrounding towns such as Gracia.
The beautiful architecture here is one reason why so many visitors love to stay in this Barrio along with the proximity to many of the city’s top attractions including Gaudi’s many stunning buildings and the famous Sagrada Familia. If you’re planning to stay in an upmarket area during your visit to the city, Eixample is the best spot for a hotel for you.
You’ll find plenty of designer shops here along with art galleries, a thriving café culture and vibrant nightlife as well as world-class eateries. The excellent transport links here mean that you can explore the best of the area when you base yourself in this Barrio.
The El Raval Neighbourhood
If you’re looking for a more authentic experience during your visit to Barcelona, you should consider staying in the El Raval Barrio. This vibrant neighbourhood is home to young and energetic artists and is also where you’ll find the Museum of Modern Art.
It’s also the perfect place to try authentic restaurants and to experience the thriving multi-cultural environment that makes the city so popular with travellers from all over the world. This area is well-known for its quirky boutiques, late night eateries and its convenient location within walking distance of popular attractions like La Boqueria, the Gothic Quarter and the metro which will take you further afield.
