What to Expect
There are a variety of different accommodation options in Barcelona. On the whole, you'll get much better deals when traveling with others, as single rooms can be quite expensive. The good old days of the peseta have unfortunately come to an end, and prices are constantly rising. Barcelona hotels are among the most expensive in Spain, just about on par with Madrid. Expect to pay a bare minimum of €50 for the cheapest single and up to €400 for luxury suites.
Many Barcelona hotels include breakfast, usually continental (pastries, coffee and juice). If breakfast is not included, however, you're probably better off discovering a nearby café. (See more about eating in Spain.)
