Finding the perfect accommodation in Barcelona

When you come to Barcelona, one of the main things that you want to get right the first time is the accommodation, because once you're here there is no way to change where you're staying... And you're going to be staying in your accommodation every night. So how does one go about choosing the accommodation that is right for them? Well that's what this article is all about.

The first choice you can make is either a hotel or an apartment. There is no right answer to this one and depends on what you're looking for. If you wish to be able to depend on others to provide you with a lot of service, but havelimited freely available resources, then you may want to stay at a hotel. On the other hand, if your desire is to be a bit more independent, have access to a large range of freely provided resources, and get a 'home away from home' feel, then you should consider staying in a Barcelona apartment. When you return to your accommodation at night you will feel more like a citizen returning to their home rather than a tourist returning to their room.

The next thing to consider is price, if you're choosing to stay in an apartment in Barcelona you'll be pleased to find a large range of prices, from private and spacious apartments that are even better value than staying in a shared hostel, to luxurious apartments complete with jacuzzis and private swimming poolsaround the same price as a 4-star hotel. The former being priced at around 13€ per person per night and the latter at around 48€ per person per night. The cheap accommodation Barcelona has to offer has no limits if you begin to open yourself to the possibility of staying in an apartment.

If you're travelling as a family, then an apartment is definitely the most suited accommodation for you. You will have all the privacy you need as your children can sleep in a completely different room, and all without spending all that extra cash on a hotel suite. Apartments in Barcelona are usually provided withfamilies in mind, and include family activities like board games and family-orientated DVDs.

Everyone is different and therefore barcelona apartment rentals aren't going to be for everyone, obviously some people prefer the experience of meeting new people in a hostel and the sense of community brings, and others love the idea of being able to call room service for the smallest of reasons. At the end of the day it is up to you, but at least now a new option has crossed your mind. So the next time you plan a trip to Barcelona or in Spain you can get Cheap Airfare on CheapOair!
