Such is the plethora of hotels in Barcelona that the mayor temporarily stopped issuing new licenses in 2016. Due to the popularity of the city, there's a desire to preserve some of the most historic buildings in Barcelona before they’re all turned into accommodation.

While this may have put a few big projects on hold, the truth is that several exciting new Barcelona hotels opened shortly before the regulation came into effect, and there is already a huge range of lodgings, from brilliant beach hotels to amazing budget stays.

If you’re after the ultimate in luxury, there are plenty of five-star hotels and four-star hotels in Barcelona in the Eixample and along the seafront.

If it’s a more boutique spot you want, you’ll find several taking over a floor of a Catalan modernist apartment block, and in pokier buildings in bohemian Gracía, towards the north of Barcelona.

If the temptation to stay near the sea is overwhelming, there are plenty of excellent beach hotels to choose between. Looming over the shore, no other Barcelona hotel stands out as much the W Hotel (Plaça de la Rosa dels Vents), which is shaped like a sail, and looking very much as if it’s about to enter the sea.

W Hotel, Barcelona

Many mouth-watering dishes are cooked up along the shimmering shoreline too; visit our guide to eating out in Barcelona to discover some of the top picks.
