When you go on a holiday, the last thing that you want to worry about is overpaying for a hotel. You’re going to Barcelona to visit the place, live a little, enjoy the attractions – why should you spend half your salary paying for a hotel you can’t even afford? Well, here are a couple of options for you in case you don’t want to shock your wallet too much:
- Hotel Jazz
If you are a lover of classy, monochrome jazz themes, then Hotel Jazz is just the thing for you. Even through the double rooms only start at $104, it’s right up in the middle of everything. It’s close to many transportation centers, making it useful for those who are travelling on a tight schedule. There’s a pool on the roof that is large enough for guests to swim in, with sunbeds lined up next to it as well. The double beds are very wide, and breakfast, even though it’s cheap, is also pretty adequate.
- Europark Hotel
Europark is very stylish in its own way, having surprisingly impressive rooms and great breakfast option for a price that is usually around $90. Plus, the place is just a few minutes’ walk from the center of the city’s Passeig de Gracia. If you are on a budget and want to save up on your money, you might want to try booking this place first.
- The Petit Palace
Out of all budget hotels in Barcelona, this is definitely one of the most equipped ones. It has very comfortable beds, showers with hydromassage and a staff that is always ready to help. You will want to avoid the breakfast, though; while you may be able to get a discount, they are not that great. Prices range at around $140.

- Villa Emilia
This one is a boutique hotel set at four stars, with prices going around $100 during the high season. Even though it has a minimalist décor, the rooms are fairly large, there is a chic terrace on the rooftop with tables shaded by umbrellas and there is also free “mini brunch” served at the hotel’s restaurant. If you take the subway, Villa Emilia is only 5 minutes away from the center of the city.

- Room Mate Emma
Room Mate Emma is found two minutes away from the Passeig de Gracia, with comfortable rooms that go around $90 in the high season. It’s old-fashioned but packed with modern utilities such as TV, WiFi, and private bathrooms.

You can reach these hotels directly from your airport simply by booking some Barcelona airport transfer services. Drivers will pick you up directly from the airport and will help you carry your luggage wherever you want to go, at a budget price. These private taxis can be even more low-cost than public ones found outside the airport, and there are no risks for you being scammed for your money or property. Plus, by booking an airport transfer, you’ll no longer have to wait in long lines, fighting for a cab while struggling with your luggage.
