Top hotels Barcelona

1 Comment

Looking into a sunny weekend escapade to Barcelona and need a good hotel?

Here are my favorite hotel picks:

#1: Hotel Banys Orientals

Great location in the Born area, hip part of town with lots of small restaurants, shops, etc. and just a short walk to the Jaume I metro station. The hotel rooms are small but offer excellent price value (less than EUR 100 for a double room) and trendy design. The hotel restaurant serves great Catalan food.

The only downside: You either reserve in advance or it’s impossible to get a room. (Well, and the bathroom is really dark).

#2: Hotel Actual

This one is located in a more “upscale” area, but also very central (intersection of Rosello and Passeig de Gracia). Rates are higher than at the Banys Orientals but still very reasonable for this area of Barcelona. And like the Banys Orientals, this is a boutique hotel with a trendy, ceontemporary decor.
