Check out our favorite picks for the most family friendly hotels during your trip to Barcelona.
Barcelona can be a fantastic city to visit as a family! And how you spend your days here is just as important as where you lay your heads down at night. Many of the historic and beautiful hotels we fantasize about may not be ideal for families. So you need to do your research and choose wisely!
Here are some of the most family friendly hotels in Barcelona that our family personally loves. But first, a quick word to help level set your expectations.
Don’t assume hotels here will have all the same luxuries as back home. A few things you’ll want to be sure each hotel has are elevators, bathtubs (if your little ones don’t take showers yet), rollaway cribs and room refrigerators (for keeping milk or other baby foods fresh).
Location is also important both from a proximity as well as safety standpoint. You’ll be touring around the city all day and your little ones will be exhausted by evening. So choosing a hotel that is near to popular attractions will help ease the struggle to find your way back at night.
Safety is key ANY time you travel, and most especially with little ones. While Barcelona is generally a safe city with theft and pickpocketing consuming most of the mossos (police)’s time, there are a few areas you’ll want to steer clear of staying in.
I’ve factored all these elements in when recommending the following so you and your family can have a relaxing, fun and stress-free visit!
