Staying at the very heart of old Barcelona doesn’t have to break the bank.
Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter is famous all over the world for its stunning architecture and fascinating culture. But can you stay there on a budget? The simple answer is: “yes, you can.” Here, we’re going to look at some of the cheapest hotels in Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter.
Hotel Call is located deep in the heart of the Barri Gótic. Although a budget hotel, it has practically all the amenities that a modern traveller could ask for including WiFi, TVs and safety deposit boxes. And thanks to its central location, visitors get easy access to all the surrounding attractions and points of interest. Hotel Call is just a five-minute walk from the Gran Teatre del Liceu, the Palau de la Musica Catalana and Palau Guell.
Although the Gothic Quarter might be a popular tourist destination, that doesn’t mean that there are no options for people travelling on a budget. The Hostal Las Flores, located in La Ramblas, is a boutique hotel with all the modern amenities you could want, including free internet, ticket and tour assistance and a 24-hour help desk, just in case your flight arrives late. The hostel is located close to many of Barcelona’s top attractions, including Barcelona Cathedral and Palau Guell, both just a ten-minute walk from the front door.
Hotel Inglés is a one-star hotel near La Rambla. It’s about as basic as you can get in the heart of Barcelona, but it’s cheap and offers a host of amenities, such as daily newspapers, a tour desk and friendly reception staff.
Recently renovated, the hotel currently sports a modern, clean and pleasing look, making it a very attractive choice for the city’s budget travellers. The hotel offers its guests free WiFi internet access and its own public areas. It’s just a 10-minute walk from some of Barcelona’s most impressive sights, including the Gran Teatre and the Placa Reial.
The Hotel Catalunya, located in Ciutat Vella is almost next door to the Teatre Poliorama. If you’re the sort of person who wants easy access to the theatre, this is the perfect hotel for you, offering the best combination of price and accessibility of any of the cheap hotels in the Quarter.
The hotel offers a concierge service, unlike many of the other cheap hotels in the area, as well as a helpdesk available 24 hours a day and free WiFi. Every guest room comes equipped with a flat-screen TV and complimentary toiletries.
Last but not least, the Hotel Atlas is located on the southern edge of the Barri Gótic. As a result, it’s close to many local attractions, including the Cathedral, the Palau de la Musica Catalana, the Gran Teatre del Liceu and Las Ramblas.
What makes this hotel stand out is the variety of extra hotel features. The 3-star Hotel Atlas has it’s own coffee shop, drying and laundering facilities and WiFi. The hotel also has multilingual staff who can help international guests get information and navigate the city.
