There are many different aspects of a trip that are important to plan out and where to stay is one of those essential arrangements. Barcelona hotels are spread across the land, accommodating any budget imaginable with inexpensive dives to luxurious, higher-end selections. When it comes to spending just enough to secure decent digs, but not enough to break the piggy bank, it is recommended to seek out moderately priced lodging options.

To save money and time, making a Barcelona hotel reservation online is one of the best ways to not only spend less, but also get an idea of where you will be staying ahead of time. A few mid-range hotels in Barcelona include Hotel Hesperia Sant Just located on C/ Frederic Mompou 1 ($110 per night), Hotel Europark on Arago 325 ($140 per night), and Husa Bonanova Park on Capitan Arenas 51 (about $130 per night).

An assortment of places to see make a vacation to Barcelona quite a treat. Many tourists head for the Old Town, where smaller neighborhoods and character-rich streets wind in and out of the area. The overwhelming sense of history will greet you at every turn as you seek out the popular bars, concert halls, and tasty dining options. Additional Barcelona tourist attractions to seek out in Old Town include many museums, art galleries, the medieval Barri GÚtic (Gothic Quarter), and the Santa Maria del Mar Church.

For a more comfortable, spacious and often more affordable alternative to a hotel, Citybase Apartments make a refreshing change. With convenient locations across the city, serviced apartments in Barcelona are perfect whatever your taste, need or budget.
