The wide variety of urban hotels offered by Barcelona honours its fame as cosmopolitan, modern and dynamic city. Choosing a good urban accommodation is quite difficult, since the decision must be taken according to many different characteristics and needs: it is not the same to look for a hotel in Barcelona in order to enjoy the nightlife of the city or the holidays with family as to book a business hotel in the Poble Nou area or in the Sant Martí district.
If you opt for the second, there is a considerable number of interesting options: accommodations with modern design spaces, areas specifically conceived for business travellers and celebrations of corporate events, direct connections to the centre of Barcelona, to the train and underground stations, and to the airport, no end of services that makes the organisation of business meetings much more easier, and rooms that combine business and relax.
In the area of the Port Olimpic of Barcelona, stand out hotels such as Confortel Barcelona, a 4 star accommodation next to Plaça de les Glòries Catalanes, with a minimalist decor and diaphanous spaces equipped with simple and functional design. In total, the hotel offers 224 rooms and so varied services such as swimming pool in summer, free wifi in the entire hotel, gym, restaurant… One of the most appreciated characteristics of this hotel, besides its services for corporate events, is its nearness to the beach.
For those with a young and rebellious spirit looking for a more nightlife and tireless Barcelona, the hotels in Las Ramblas, accommodations next to La Boquería Market and accommodations offering rooms for groups in Barcelona are the best option. Petit Palace chain, for example, has several interesting examples, especially near to the Gothic Quarter, to the Modernist Barcelona and to the Eixample area.
Families can also find their space in these hotels, since most of them, although very focused in a business public, also offer special rooms for couples with children in the centre of Barcelona. Some chains opt for adjoining rooms, because they offer the comfort of two completely independent spaces joined by a door, and others, design unique spaces with bunks for children and double bed for parents. Spaces vary, according to the needs. Cots, in general, are usually a supplement on request without charge.
In short, modern spaces with up-to-date services. Urban hotels in Barcelona are like this. You can easily distinguish them from the hotels in Madrid and Valencia, because they all keep a style that prevails in Barcelona and that has turned it into one of the main world exponents as far as design is concerned. The rooms are equipped with all type of technology: stationary bicycles to be in good shape during the business trip, big wardrobes, dry cleaner’s, car park discounts… Many are the advantages of betting on a business hotel in Barcelona, although it, clearly, affect the price: from 90 to 150 Euros in 4 star hotels in the centre of the city.
