This is where to stay with family in Barcelona:

This beautiful, modern hotel in the heart of Barcelona is perfect for families. Rooms are available in double, triple, and even quadruple occupancy and each include a complete private bathroom. Hotel Azul also offers apartments with separate sitting rooms and fully equipped kitchens. 

The large, newly renovated rooms feature air conditioning, free Wi-Fi and satellite TV, and infant beds when needed. The hotel also has its own crèche, a secure, private daycare for times when mom and dad want some time alone. Hotel Azul is close to Plaça Espanya, and a ten-minute walk from Las Arenas. Book it here.


Petit Palace Boqueria Garden

Treat your family to a luxurious getaway for a remarkable price. Petit Palace goes out of the way to make your stay exceptional. Pets are welcome, and pet beds and food bowls are available upon request. They also welcome families: a crib and stroller will be provided free of charge, as will a daily bike rental for sightseeing at all the nearby attractions. 

This hotel is minutes from La Rambla, an enchanting pedestrian walkway through the center of the city. Petit Palace is very near the famous Plaça de Catalunya, as well as Passeig de Gracia, a famed shopping district. Prefer one with a pool? Try the Icon BCN, also from the Petit Palace family.

These modern, well-accommodated apartments are perfect for slightly larger families. Villarroel Apartments offers a one-room apartment that can house up to four people, or a two-bedroom apartment that can house up to five guests. All apartments have a fully equipped kitchen, a private shower and bath, and air-conditioning. Cribs are also available.

The apartments are just three minutes from the metro, and from there, you’re two stops away from Monjuic, home to the Botanical Gardens and the Magic Fountain of Monjuic, a must-see. A few stops in the other direction is La Rambla, which often features street performers and animal shows. Book it here.

The fabulous new Casa Gracia Hostel is the perfect accommodation for families of more than four. Here you can choose rooms for one through six people, with either private or shared bathrooms. They offer something to fit any budget! 

These rooms also include breakfast, somewhat of a rarity in Barcelona. They also offer a game room, a kitchen and the staff is equipped with knowledge of interesting places to visit to make your trip to Barcelona truly unforgettable. Book it here.

Urbany Hostel is a truly unique place to stay. In 2013, it has been awarded “Best for Families” by Hostelbookers’ customers. It is a truly unique place to stay. It has rooms for up to eight people, and is the only hostel in Barcelona that has a swimming pool. It also features a rooftop terrace that offers great city views.
