The amount and variety of hotels in Barcelona is huge. Barcelona Hotels can fit everyone with any taste and with every budget. Most of the year, and especially in the summer, it is difficult to find a decent room if not making a reservation in advance. Nevertheless, if you arrived without making a reservation in advance, it is possible to use the Information Booth located in the airport or the one located in Catalonia Plaza. There are relatively few five starts hotels, more than that four starts hotels and lots of three stars hotels and hostels. In the La Rambla area most of the hotels are old and the rooms are turning to the boulevard, from which a 24 hours a day noise is arriving.
Barcelona is big, but little enough, to easily and quickly arrive every where. Thats why it is worth checking the paseo de gracia region and the hotels in Eixample this region is wide, well lighted and full of restaurants, stores and coffee shops. It is also worth checking hotels in more faraway areas that a good metro transportation is available to.
