A great budget traveller option whilst visiting major cities such as Barcelona, is to rent a holiday apartment. Besides from saving money, this allows you to customize your stay and find your favourite place in town. Barcelona Apartments from private owners are available throughout the city - in the centre, close to the beach or nearby the major sights as Gaudi's famous Sagrada Familia, Parque Güell or the Casa Batlló. OH Barcelona is the leading company offering this type of lodging. Other sites offer this and other types of Barcelona accommodation, from discount holiday rentals to luxury hotels, with traveler reviews and virtual tours.
From short-term to long-term, from basic to luxury, and from sleek and modern to quaint and traditional, there's no shortage of accommodation options in Spain.
Due to the influx of tourism, particularly over the past couple of decades, accommodations are plentiful in Spain and finding a place to stay usually doesn't even require prior reservation. However, we recommend planning ahead; you don't want to start out your trip dragging your suitcase from door to door looking for a room! Plus, keep in mind that if you're planning on visiting a city during a major festival (Valencia for Las Fallas, Sevilla for Semana Santa, etc.) rooms are likely to become scarce and prices may skyrocket.
A few things to keep in mind about Spain accommodations: Travelling with others is not only a fun way to experience a new place, but is also a great way to save money, as single rooms can surprisingly be a bit on the pricy end. Many hotels and even budget accommodations may include a continental breakfast of pastries, coffee and juice. However, don't worry if yours doesn't- there is guaranteed to be a handful of cafés just steps away from your hotel's door!
