Going to Barcelona? It is one of the most popular travel destinations in the world. It offers almost anything too! You’ll find something for every member of the family.
Barcelona is a massive city and has some lovely hotels.
Traveling for Kids & Family
If you’re here with your Family then let’s face it kids and adults have different priorities. Kids will want to play whereas parents will want to do some sightseeing, for these reaosns we recommend families trying to stay in the following districts –
- El Born (the old town)
- Gothic Quarter (the old town):
- Poble Nou,
Here are the two recommended apartments we like though: Durlet Beach Apartments and Bai81 Apartments. Both places are walking distance away to nearby attractions, the apartments are well spacious and located in nice neighborhoods.
Traveling for business
If you’re here for business you might want to try squeeze in some pleasure while you can. Our favorite place for business is Capri by Fraser.
Here with friends
If you’re here with friends, you’re going to want to have fun. With a group though sometimes logistics can get a bit complicated. I recommend staying in these districts:
- El Born
- Gothic Quarter
- El Raval
