This is a list of what I consider the best mid-range hotels in Barcelona, in rough order of preference. As you surely have guessed, some of the best values in Barcelona accommodations can be found in the mid-range bracket.
Here’s where you’ll find hotels a step up from standard-issue high-end hotels, but with prices more affordable than those charged by the luxury chains.
If you’re willing to spend between 50€ and 75€ per night for a single, twin or double room, you’ll find yourself spoiled for choice in Barcelona. There are loads of good-value mid-range hotels in the city and they’re going up all the time. For this money, most of the midrangers are creative originals, blending high levels of comfort with an often-quirky sense of style.
Here you’ll find my reviews of selected mid-range hotels in Barcelona.
Yurbban Trafalgar Hotel: Its 56 rooms are clean and quiet with a minimalist decor and 40-inch smart TVs. The walk-in, rainfall showers are exceptionally nice, but some rooms are a little dark. Notable amenities include a restaurant, free Wi-Fi and laundry facilities, and a lovely rooftop bar and pool with spectacular views.
Hotel Brummell: There are 20 guest rooms at this property in Barcelona’s up-and-coming Poble Sec neighborhood. It’s a nice area if you want to experience a more local vibe, but at the same time the bohemian El Raval neighborhood and Las Ramblas are a 15-minute walk from the hotel. Excellent features include a swimming pool, sauna, sundeck, indoor courtyard, and top-class restaurant.
Room Mate Pau: The mid-range, chain hotel has 66 funky guest rooms with colorful striped carpets and sleek, white furnishings. It’s in a convenient location – only a few steps away from Plaza Catalunya and less than a 5-minute walk to the shops and restaurants on Las Ramblas. The hotel has a breakfast buffet, and a big, outdoor terrace.
Hotel Jazz: Located on the vibrant Carre Pelai a short stroll from La Rambla, the Hotel Jazz reflects the energy of its surroundings in its look and feel, with stylish and colorful decor and a buzzy vibe. The contemporary rooms feature comfy beds, flat-screen TVs, and free Wi-Fi. The centerpiece amenity is a rooftop, year-round outdoor swimming pool and sundeck with good city views, a cocktail bar, and a lounge.
Hotel Omnium: The Hotel Omnium is located in the central district of the Eixample, a few metres from the nerve centre of the city. Its spacious rooms, in warm, pastel tones and furnished with high-quality materials have everything to make your stay incredibly comfortable. The private bathroom has a spacious and modern shower.
Granvia: Built in 1870 as an elegant manor house for the owning family of the Bank of Barcelona, the Granvia was converted into a hotel in 1935. Completely renovated in 2013, the hotel offers upscale rooms, sterling service, an ample breakfast buffet (for a fee), and an outdoor terrace café. It’s a good fit if you want a stylish and comfortable stay, but don’t need a pool, fitness center, restaurant and other amenities…
Praktik Vinoteca: The 64-room Hotel Praktik Vinoteca is a mid-range boutique hotel with a thorough, yet tasteful, wine theme. The hotel’s Eixample location means restaurants and bars are all around, while Plaza Catalunya and Las Ramblas are only a 10-minute walk away. The sharp interiors include plenty of well-aged wood, cork, and over 900 display bottles that create a polished, bohemian look throughout the hotel. Rooms are compact, but contemporary, with urban-chic details and modern features like air-conditioning and flat-screen TVs.
Chic & Basic Lemon: This is a hotel inspired in the exuberant nature of the tropics, featuring contemporary decoration in yellows and greens. It features a total of 30 rooms (26 of which are double or triple) spread over five floors, where you can relax and recover after a busy day in the city.
Musik Boutique Hotel: The 23-room Musik Boutique Hotel is a lovely little hotel with a great spot right in the Gothic Quarter. Although it’s housed in an 18th century building, interiors are modern, with dramatic mood lighting and a white-on-white pallette. Rooms are attractive and stylish, and come with flat-screen TVs, air-conditioning, and audio systems. Some have balconies, and the ones in the Junior Suites are furnished.
Hotel La Casa del Sol: La Casa del Sol is a boutique hotel only a 10-minute walk from Paseo de Gràcia, Barcelona’s main shopping centre. It has 18 comfortable, soundproof rooms equipped with luxurious bed linen and amenities. The hotel has a bar service, a cocktail bar, restaurant, terrace offering panoramic views and free Wi-Fi.
