Hotels in Barcelona offer incredible accommodations in a city nicknamed “the Ciutat Comtal” and “Barna”. Known for its football club, its architecture, its museums, its shoreline, its tapas, its cuisine, its nightlife and its fashion, Barcelona is located in northeastern Spain on the Balearic Sea. Some things to keep in mind are that this area has its own language, Catalan, that summers can be quite crowded, that the city has an expansive free WiFi network, that many shops shut down on Sundays and that you should not buy drinks from anyone on the beach. Arguably the worst time to visit Barcelona is in August due to the thongs of tourists and locals closing shops, while the best time is in Spring. Hotels in Barcelona truly are some of the best in all of Spain. Before we get to hotels in Barcelona, let’s take a look at some background information on the area to help you along the way.
Barcelona has an expansive history, having been ruled by Romans, Goths, Arabs and Franks, with some of the city’s tombs and dwellings dating to 5,000 BC. During the Spanish Civil War, Catalonia was firmly Republican. The May Days of 1937 saw the city’s power shift from anarchist groups to their Communist allies until the city fell on January 26, 1939 to Francisco Franco‘s troops. Franco’s death in 1975 prompted the restoration of Catalan autonomy. Thereafter, two events promoted Barcelona’s development, Spanish accession to the European Community, and the 1992 Summer Olympics.
Barcelona, the second-most populated Spanish city behind Madrid, is located between the mouths of the Llobregat and Besòs Rivers on Catalonia‘s shoreline. With a population of around 1.6 million people and ranked 35th in worldly GDP, Barcelona is one of the largest metropolises on the Mediterranean Sea. A world-renowned tourist destination, Barcelona enjoys a Mediterranean climate that offers mild winters, while summers average in the high 70s degrees Fahrenheit.
