Barcelona Family Hotels – Tips & Recommendations

  • Barcelona is a popular year-round destination so be sure to book hotels in advance for any time of year (but especially June through September).
  • HotelsCombined.com – Great website for finding hotel deals in Barcelona.
  • My favorite hotels for families are the Aparthotel Arai (small rooftop pool, great central location near restaurants, shops, and squares) and Eurostars Grand Marina (large family suites, nice pool).
  • The best budget hotels for families are the El Abrevadero and the Hostal Benidorm.
  • Get Your Guide – Good site for tours, city passes, and advance tickets.
  • The Private Cooking Class and Market Tour (near the awesome La Boqueria Market) is perfect for groups or families – easily tailored to your preferences or dietary requirements.

  1. Good Restaurant for Introduction to Spanish Food with Foods

    First time in Barcelona and Spain and looking for a good/great restaurant to sample local food. Any recommendations for Barcelona restaurants with kids? Nothing fancy. Staying near La Ramblas.

      Navarra is a delicious easy-going restaurant a short walk from Las Ramblas. Mainly small plates so you can sample lots of dishes. Try to sit up at the bar so you can see and ask about all the dishes going by. Our kids loved it as much as us.
