Four Star Barcelona hotels

Most popular areas in Barcelona for 4-star hotels

Famed for its museums, organic Gaudi architecture and sandy beaches, Barcelona attracts visitors of every kind – and that’s why there is accommodation to suit every taste and budget. If you’re after a comfortable 4-star experience, you can find such pads spread out across the city, with a good number to found around the atmospheric Gothic Quarter, amid the squares and churches. The sleek grid-like streets of Eixample also harbor some plush 4-star hotels, with a cluster to be discovered within the Sant Antoni quarter of that district.

Top 4-star hotels in Barcelona

One of the most striking hotels in Barcelona is Barcelo Sants. Designed to resemble a vision from the future, its gorgeous black and white aesthetics will make you feel like you’ve stepped into a kitsch sci-fi film, and its location over the train station makes it super convenient too. Equally stylish is Vincci Gala, a hotel boasting warm, rich colors in the guestrooms and a hip breakfast restaurant decked out in 60s-style retro decor. Then there’s Hotel Ilunion Barcelona, boasting a sparkling rooftop swimming pool and impeccably designed guestrooms which ensure a comfortable stay.

Where to find the best restaurants in Barcelona

Barcelona is a foodie paradise, and simply by taking a wander through random streets, you’ll stumble across interesting eateries serving everything from traditional tapas to casual Basque-style pintxos. The Gothic Quarter is known for its tucked-away restaurants where you can feast on fresh seafood, cured hams and traditional saffron-flecked paella. Up-scale dining experiences await in the Eixample district – a must for serious gastronauts – while over on the seafront there are family-friendly places where you can tuck into everything from grilled steaks to the hake fillets beloved of the Spanish.

The most popular things to do in Barcelona

A favorite attraction for many visitors and locals in Barcelona is the Picasso Museum. Cleverly displayed throughout a number of centuries-old palaces, the works of the Spanish master span his entire career, from youthful experiments to his earth-shattering Cubist works and beyond. Another cultural magnet is the Funacio Juan Miro, which not only displays masterpieces by the great Surrealist but works by young, current artists as well. Paying homage to the architectural gems of Gaudi is a must when in Barcelona, and the most obvious example is the towering Sagrada Familia, whose rippled spires loom across the city. Football fans will also want to make a pilgrimage to Camp Nou, the legendary home of FC Barcelona. Take the special tour and visit the on-site museum to really soak up the club’s history.

Best ways to get around Barcelona

Barcelona may seem like a whole world within itself, but the various areas can be explored on foot, whether you’re exploring the ancient warren of the Gothic Quarter or the streamlined streets of Eixample. The city boasts a clean and efficient metro network which is ideal for getting from A to B, while the street-level trams let you take in the sights as you’re whisked across Catalonia’s capital. If you want to get out beyond the urban center and see more of the rugged landscape, hiring your own car is a great option.
