Hotels in Barcelona

Barcelona is a major economic centre, with one of Europe’s principal Mediterranean ports, and Barcelona International Airport is the second largest in Spain. Business and vacation travellers looking for can find accommodation listed in a Barcelona hotel directory that has information on all the major hotels in the city.

The Catalan capital, 166 kilometres from the French border and 120 kilometres south of the Pyrenees, is on a plain bordered by two rivers, the Llobregat in the south and the Besos in the north. The Mediterranean Sea nudges the coast of the city of Barcelona, while the Collserola ridge, which is part of the Serralada, borders the west of the city, with pine and oak woodland, fields and meadows, as well as wetland vegetation.

Founded as a Roman city, Barcelona became the capital of the Counts of Barcelona and the Crown of Aragon. Barcelona has a Mediterranean climate, with mild, humid winters and warm, dry summers. Barcelona contains 68 municipal parks, divided into 12 historic parks, 5 botanical parks, 45 urban parks and 6 forest parks.

After a great deal of renovation work, lasting more than two decades, Barcelona has transformed itself into one of the most dynamic and stylish cities in the world. Summer is serious party time, but year-round the city buzzes, and is a fascinating place for architecture, food, fashion, style, music and good times.

Barcelona is bursting with pubs, gay bars and dancing clubs, and the sounds of live jazz, rock, flamenco and salsa are never far away. The yearly calendar is crammed with holidays and festivals. The combination of tourists and business travellers visiting Barcelona means hotels are busy for most of the year. Spring and early summer is the best time to be there as the weather is usually pleasant.
