Where to sleep?
Barcelona has many interesting neighborhoods, each one with its charm and characteristics that make it different and unique. From the alternative neighborhood of Gracia, the bohemian district of Borne, through the stimulating Barceloneta, the charming and magical Gothic district, the most cosmopolitan and mysterious Raval, the elegance of the Eixample, reaching even the least touristy and more relaxed areas such as Poble Sec, Sants and Poble Nou. All with the most interesting places to discover.
If you want to save on accommodation, we recommend that you choose accommodation outside the most central neighborhoods of Barcelona, for example in Poble Sec, Sants, Raval or Gracia. All are near the center and very well connected with public transport.
