Barcelona Hotels for Families – Tips & Recommendations
- Barcelona is a popular year-round destination so be sure to book hotels in advance for any time of year (but especially June through September).
- Booking.com – Great website for finding hotel deals in Barcelona.
- My favorite hotels for families are the Aparthotel Arai (small rooftop pool, great central location near restaurants, shops, and squares) and Eurostars Grand Marina (large family suites, nice pool).
- The best cheap hotels for families are the Hostal Abrevadero and the Hostal Benidorm.
- Get Your Guide – Good site for tours, city passes, and advance tickets.
- The Private Cooking Class and Market Tour (near the awesome La Boqueria Market) is perfect for groups or families – easily tailored to your preferences or dietary requirements.
