Hotels In Barcelona

Either way, Barcelona is a big city, so you'll want to make sure you book a hotel in the right area depending on how you want to enjoy the city.
City centre hotels in areas like Las Ramblas and the Gothic Quarter will come at a premium while accommodation on the outskirts of town may be better suited if you have a lower budget. Either way, Barcelona is very accessible by public transport and one of the best ways to explore the city is by foot.
With so much sunshine in Spain, hotels with rooftop pools are becoming more and more trendy and Barcelona is a popular example of this. Many hotels now offer guests the chance to relax and unwind with amazing views of the city after a hard day exploring the sights.

Understandable really.
Ibiza, famous for its beach bars and clubs is also an ideal spot to check out. While the popular and spots of Playa d'en Bossa and San Antonio offer a livelier holiday vibe, there are still some great chilled beach bars to be enjoyed around the island like Chiringay on Es Cavallet beach.
Some of the best hotels near the beach include Ibiza's Hard Rock Hotel, TUI Magic Life in Fuerteventura and the Hotel Iberostar Coral Beach in Marbella. If distance to the beach is important at your next hotel, make sure you do your homework and find out how far the hotel is from the beach and what sort of beach it is. Not all beaches in Spain are soft and sandy.
