Looking for a place to crash in after painting the town red? Barcelona is full low-cost hotels where you can sleep off that hangover and continue partying like mad.
Even with cheap rates, Hotel Urquinaona welcomes you with a bottle of sparkling wine. The staff will help you arrange your itinerary, and with this Barcelona hotel’s great location, all the sights will just be a short walk away. Don’t worry about leaving your things; each room has a safety box.
Another budget hotel in Barcelona is Hotel Ginebra, near Plaza de Catalunya; here you can cook your own food, take in the view, and stay in a clean room. For great food within the vicinity, go to Ciudad Condal for tapas, or Skunka for Japanese food. See if you can spot Josep Granyer’s La girafa coqueta and El toro assegut sculptures around the area.
Hotel Lloret is a bargain as well, with its clean and air-conditioned rooms. This low-cost Barcelona hotel faces the busy Las Ramblas, and you can soak up the view from the balcony. If you’re not a very adventurous eater, KFC, McDonald’s, and Subway are within walking distance.
For those who just come and go, Pension 45 is highly recommended for those on a very tight budget. Attractions nearby are the music hall Palau de la Musica Catalana, where you might catch a flamenco performance, Restaurante Bilbao-Berria for exceptional Basque cuisine, and La Boqueria for shopping, wine-tasting, and picture-taking.
Etap Barcelona Viladecans is good for something quieter than the centre of Barcelona. Some of the best restaurants are nearby: Yashima with its delicious Japanese dishes, Restaurante Lasarte with its 3 Michelin stars, and Visual restaurant with its variety of wines. The hotel is also near the Picasso Museum.
