I stayed at the friend's flat when I was there.
Staying with a local is such an eye opening experience for me. In fact, it just proves to me that we are all alike, wherever you live. We all have the same ambitions, hopes and fears. And its great if we all like to party !
i also discovered post party recovery is also universal ;-)
Narrow streets outside, wonderful view from the flat, great atmosphere at all hours of the day and night....
You will find everything from luxury hotels like the Arts to small local hotels.
There are also large hotels for business travelers ( Hotel Juan Carlos I).
More hotels: Melia Apolo, Hotel Calderon, Habana Hotel, Hilton...
The appartment holds 2 double rooms (21 euro)and 2 single rooms (27 euro).
A big appartment, which Peter (the host) hast renovated into a very cool place.
I travelled to Barcelona for the day so didn't have to worry about finding somewhere to stay. However, finding accommodation is not a problem in Barcelona. The city has 6 five star hotels, 48 four star hotels and 60 three star ones! If you're looking for accommodaton, the tourist office are a great help and do their best to find you something to suit. Their phone number is 93 304 32 32.
about 50 Euros per night for 1 family in a rent-a-tent
great views, much shadow, nice people, good quality food, shops and restaurants.
about 200FIM (around £20) per night per person
We had a really nice ** hotel for really cheap taking in concideration that it was the high season, because it wasn't in the centre of the city. Really nice Breakfast and clean facilities.
This places I recomend you, aren't hotels... just camp houses, like farms but well cared that the owners have some rooms to .
You'll stay in the middle of the country life.
I don't know it but it must be quite cheap, although is in the middle of the nature.
Peaceful, enjoy the country life, exelent to go with children so they can have a good time with animals and taking part on they dayly life, feeting the animals...
HOSTAL DE JOVES
I have never been sleeping there but i live near and i have always seen young and health people in this hostel. Is located in front of a great park 'Ciudadela Park' in a good zone and near of the center.
We stayed in a place just above Barcelona. It is called Callella. Here you can go to the beach and go out every night. With the train to Barcelona is easy and pretty cheap to. So this was a great place to stay for 15 days.
Close to the beach, Railwaystation closeby and the city was only just a walk away.
Of course I never slept in a hotel there! (except in The Ritz when I got married, he, he).
Currently, I own an apartment there. It's only 10 min. walk from Les Rambles and 5 min. from Plaza Espanya. I RENT it out, and the prices are not bad at all! We have maid services if you would like.
Completely quality reformed: all Miele appliances, 3 bedrooms, 2 salons, 1 kitchen, 1 bath, and a 7 metros Gallery with very interesting views!
We left the Barcelona charm intact, but re-did it all! You'll love it!! For more info visit:
Taking in consideration the advantages of the privacy, security, location convenience and condition of the place, you'll be winning!
Go to an information booth as soon as you get to town (I like traveling on whim, no reservations). These people will recommend many different types of lodging. They will even make a reservation for you. I stayed in the Hostel Cisneros for $18/night. The place was immaculate, the people accommodating, and the view was phenomenal.
while in Spain, we stayed in Salou, on the Costa Dorada. For us, this was a hell sess pit....but if you want britain by the beach...go ahead!! We booked our travel through 'Club Travel 2000' & I will tell everyone who asks exactly how unprofessional a company this is. After complaints to the company & the Spanish Tourism Board, hopefully will happen to avoid others having the disaster of accomodation we had. On arrival, we saw our acom. was a mess. No linen, towels, nothing. It took 6 hrs to get them, & when we did, they were full of holes. The room was unclean, with no rubbish bin, towel rail, toilet roll holder, shower curtain....that's fine...but crusty dry food on our plates & cutlery?? Ugh!! Complained again, but only had someone in to clean up, no amenities were fixed or supplied, we went without a bin for a week, & had to boil our plates, etc before using them. Our doors were jammed & couldn't close. We rarely saw our rep who was obviously avoiding the 30 something people who were upset about the so called 3 star accom we got. Besides that, the people in the apartment were sloths who made an absolute mess, with badly mannered kids who would swear at you for no apparent reason, the entertainment downstairs was so loud that we could hear it with earplugs in & pillows over our heads!! No attemptwas made by Club Travel to rectify the situation, to offer any compensation, or even apologise. Nothing. We're taking the matter further, so wish us luck!!!!!!Salou itself was just a place full of people interested in beer, beach, sex & trying to to be as loud & arrogant as they can. I understand fun...hello!! I'm early 20s myself, but I don't think going to Spain is sitting in a Brittish pub all day watching football on Sky. Go home & do that!! All I'm saying, is Salou is not for those people who want to experience Spain, the language, the traditional towns, the architecture. All you'll get is some 20 yr old British git with a pint in the hand asking if you want to see him later, while his 18 yr old wife tends to their unruly 4 kids!!
we got a package.....£180 each for a week, self catering...others paid £250 for the same thing.
it's truly recommended to stay in one of the pensions around the ramblas - it's very close to most attractions and metro stations and very cheap.
we were in 'pension palermo'.
you can find the pensions list in this site:
look for tourist>ACCOMMODATIONS
NOT recommended if you old people or people that looks for fancy hotels...
close to attractions,cheap
Barcelona hotels are good, I recomend a three or four stars.
For instance: NH Podium.
or Fira Palace.
Arts Hotel as Luxury.
NH Podium: Double= 15.000 pta.
Fira Palace: Double= 25.000 pta.
Arts: Double= 35.000 pta.
Podium: 3*(Tourist category).Right.
Fira Palace: 4*(First category).Very Good for its price,has restaurants,great views,souvenir shops,big bedrooms,etc.
Arts: Luxury Hotel.All you could need.
Nice view. The weather spoilt it for us though. It was very dull and quite cold.It would have been nice in better weather. The pool was very nice with an outdoor cafe.
There was an indoor bar.
We had cooking facelities, very basic but we managed.
