Search the best hotels in Catalonia
Many visitors stop at bustling Barcelona, or the beautiful sunny Costa Brava, but there's a lot more to Catalonia! The wild beauty of the hinterland is rich with medieval villages and topped by the Pyrenees. And there is that special Catalan flavour - very different to the rest of Spain. The best places to stay in Catalonia range from luxury castles to Michelin starred foodie heaven to budget B&Bs. There really is something for everyone!
What not to Miss
Famed for food, art and architecture, Barcelona is obscenely rich with colour. There are so many sites of historical interest you may not know where to start, so many places offering first rate food and drink, and so many unique and beautiful sights to see that it'll be a challenge to plan your visit. It's a Spanish treasure!
The largest city in North Catalonia, Girona is one of the best places to stay if you are interested in exploring the region's colourful history as well as its tasty present. It is often thought of as Barcelona in miniature and is only an hours drive to both the Costa Brava and the Pyrenees ski resorts.
Catalonia is a vast area, tracing its boundary with France and Andorra through the Pyrenees. Here you'll find dramatic, rugged mountain scenery - a fabulous playground for skiers and walkers, but enough culture to keep less active sorts happy too.
Few of us would need more than some photos of the Costa Brava to see that it is stunning. It has all the azure beauty of the Cote d'Azur but at a fraction of the price - it is the same stretch of coastline after all. It also has Dali's heritage, the food Catalonia is famed for and plenty of good snorkelling, golfing, diving and sailing. We also have an excellent selection of charming hotels from Begur to Cadaques and beyond.
- Hotel Market is the perfect place for foodies. The decor is 'no frills' because all the attention is on the menu. It's also very reasonably priced.
- One of the best places to stay in Catalonia as far as location is concerned, the Hotel Actual is just behind Gaudi's La Pedrera. Its style is modern and is comfortable enough to be recommended for families. (Opt for a Junior Suite - they have four poster beds!)
- For that roof-top -terrace-view you see in all the adverts for Barcelona, book the Hotel Duquesa de Cardona. As well as the views, this 16th Century nobleman's house has a reputation for really looking after guests.
- The Grand Hotel Central is classic Barcelona - a large 1920s building renovated with subtle minimalism and style, a two Michelin starred restaurant and celestial views from the roof terrace.
- In a great central location, the Hotel Granvia is a newly-refurbished and now palatial property. There are 58 contemporary rooms, a gorgeous terrace and plenty to see and do just outside the hotel’s doors.
- The Hotel Jazz also has a great location - this time close to La Boqueria. The name comes from the Jazz Bar on the eighth floor of the hotel. There are around a hundred rooms with a minimalist design plus a great rooftop pool with amazing views.
- Hotel Claris is a grand Barcelona institution with an extensive art collection and rooftop pool and terrace offering you the whole city to view.
- The Mercer Hotel is a forward thinking design hotel with 27 rooms in the Gothic Quarter just five minutes from the cathedral and ten minutes from Las Ramblas. The rooms and suites are carefully decorated and feature exposed stone walls, glass partitions, stand-alone baths and modern art. There’s a stunning rooftop bar and tapas restaurant.
On The Costa Brava
- A 'restaurant with rooms', the simply decked out Hostal Sa Rascassa has been named the best hotel in the world - twice.
- If you're in the mood for romance book the Hotel del Teatre. Relax in converted farmhouses with views over the Mediterranean landscape, soak up the sun on nearby beaches or round the pool and luxuriate in the flavours of the hotel's restaurant.
- L'Hort de Sant Cebria is within the 'Dali triangle', between the region's three major museums and galleries. This is our recommendation if you're looking for a country house hotel type experience, but with a Catalan twist.
- Named one of the best hotels in the world, twice, and probably because of its restaurant, Hostal Sa Rascassa is perfect for foodies. The five rooms are simple and fresh, as is the restaurant's decor. It is right on the beach, so as well as spectacular food, this hotel is the one to book if you want spectacular views pretty much all to yourself.
- For something truly special reserve a room at the Castell d'Emporda. Sleep in a wonderful castle surrounded by vineyards, herb gardens, a wonderful glass fronted restaurant and perfect pool. This luxurious historic home has been updated to tick the boxes modern day luxury requires making it one of the most luxurious properties on our list.
- For something truly special the Castell d'Emporda should fit the bill. Sleep in a wonderful castle, surrounded by vineyards & herb gardens, enjoy a wonderful glass fronted restaurant and perfect pool.
- If you're travelling with a small group or a large family, the Casa Migdia is ideal. It only has five rooms so you can rent the whole colourfully, and ethnically, decorated place out.
- Just steps from the cathedral door, the Hotel Legends de Girona is a chic, but characterful hotel with 15 romantic rooms. The floors are parquet and the walls are stone, there’s lots of character and a warm atmosphere.
- The Hotel Historic is a gorgeous collection of 15 rooms and apartments in a beautiful historic building in the heart of town just 100metres from the cathedral. The chic interiors are sunny and beautifully furnished and some have private balconies.
- Mas Carreras 1846 is an exquisitely restored country home in the Baix Empordà countryside just outside Girona with eight elegant rooms and antique-chic decor. Lots of original features plus rolling gardens, an outdoor pool and sun terraces.
- Barcelona’s Hotel Neri is a 17th century palace beautifully and sympathetically converted into a contemporary 22 room hotel. Located in the Gothic Quarter, the hotel has a fashionable restaurant, terrace bar and library.
- With 125 rooms, El Palace might be a bit too big for some people’s classification of a boutique hotel, but if you focus on the decor and the atmosphere then it certainly qualifies. The hotel dates from the 1920s, which is also where the decor puts it. With elegant chandeliers, plenty of art and objets d’art there’s also a luxurious modern spa and all the state-of-the-art technology you might need. Plus a Michelin starred restaurant.
- If you prefer your decor modern then the Hotel Ciutat de Girona is a great value option in a great location. There are 44 rooms, from singles to family-sized, and an indoor pool, bar and restaurant. Rooms start from less than £90 per night.
- The Hotel Restaurant Aigualclara with its excellent, reasonably priced restaurant and super central location is one of the best places to stay on the Costa Brava for families. With only eight rooms it's a relatively private setting for your family holiday and with kid's activities on site, it couldn't be easier. Starting from less than £60 per night, this is also a good spot for travellers seeking a bargain.
For Great Value
- Girona’s Bellmirall is a seven room B&B close to the cathedral and the Musee d’art. The rooms are small but charming, with parquet floors and stone walls. There is a lovely terrace where breakfast is served. Rooms start from around £40 per night.
- The Park Hotel is situated in Barcelona’s El Born area and has a highly recommended restaurant. Here you can pick up a double room from as little as £62 per night.
- Or Barcelona’s Room Mate Emma offers futuristic minimalism just steps from trendy shops and attractions. Doubles can be booked from just £66 per night.
For an Apartment or Villa
- If you’d prefer to stay in an apartment or private villa we recommend you visit our online partner booking.com.
- There are three airports in Catalonia which have international connections, Girona-Costa-Brava Airport, Barcelona-El Prat Airport and Reus Airport, which is close to Tarragona and the popular resorts of Cambrils and Salou. The region also has a train network which is well connected to the rest of Europe.
- If you want to hire a car - which we strongly advise if you’re staying in Catalonia and want to see as much as possible of the region- we recommend you visit our online partner Rentalcars.
- Catalonia is a big and varied region, but broadly speaking the most popular time to visit is summer. However if you want to avoid the crowds, but still enjoy the good weather, the best time to visit is probably just before or after the main summer season.
