  • We stay in this area often. Far enough for the tourist trap main area to get a local vibe but close enough to walk in to the tourist bits you want to visit. We love the walk along the beach front and ...  more »
  • We chose poblenou for street art, we have not been disappointed but stay on our hunger... the district is undergoing a full renovation and DEMOLITION I think that some of this fabulous wall art was destroyed, what a pity we still had the chance to see an artist in full creation!

Where to stay in Barcelona

Because the city's metro system makes traveling from area to area relatively painless, you have more flexibility in choosing a place to stay. Barceloneta, the neighborhood surrounding the city beach is somewhat removed from the city center, making its hotels popular with families. Only a 15-minute walk from the center, Barceloneta has a more laid-back beach atmosphere but still offers several restaurants and entertainment options. Farther away from the beach and closer to the city center, El Born is a charming neighborhood well-known for its restaurants and lively bar scene. Eixample is also popular as it is more central and home to some of the city's best shopping and tourist sites, including La Sagrada Familia. For a more traditional experience, consider staying in the Gothic Quarter, the heart of Old Barcelona. This picturesque neighborhood boasts a tight network of historical architecture with boutique hotels and traditional restaurants.
