As Barcelona remains toward the top of the list of destinations for Cheapos to visit, we want to be sure you have plenty of options to choose from when booking an affordable hotel. So before you plan your itinerary of architectural sightseeing, museum-hopping, wining and dining, and shopping until dropping, be sure to find a hotel that won’t drain the bank account.
To be sure you find a cheap hotel that is both charming, central to the action and, of course, budget-friendly, we’ve added a handful of new hotels to our guide for you to consider.

If you are visiting Barcelona on a romantic getaway, Ciutat Vella is the affordable hotel for you. From the room decor to the dreamy rooftop terrace, this place is ideal for couples. Sure, the amenities like flat-screen televisions, free Wi-Fi and air conditioning are treats in themselves, but this place is especially popular for its rooftop hot tub.
Breakfast is often included in the nightly rate, or you can find something delicious at a local cafe. Impress your sweetie with a stay at Ciutat Vella.
Address: Santa Anna, 24
Rates: from around $90 a night
With simple, budget-friendly rooms near much of the action that Barcelona has to offer, Catalunya is a great spot to rest your head each night of your trip. This two-star hotel has rooms that are rather basic, but in the best way. Guestrooms adorned in grays and purples offer a calming retreat, and there is no lack of amenities. Many rooms offer excellent views of the city, and some even have balconies. We highly recommend checking these out.
There’s no breakfast at the Hotel Catalunya, but this is all the more reason to head out on the town early to stop by one of the many cafes and restaurants nearby for your morning meal. Get a steal for a room at Catalunya.
Address: Rambla de Catalunya 1
Rates: from around $100 a night
We’ve become big fans of Hotel Ginebra, which offers attractive rooms with even more attractive rates, especially considering its location near Plaza Catalunya. Rooms are nothing short of fun, with reds, purples and floral prints coming out to play. Everything needed for a comfortable home base is there, such as kettles, air conditioning, flat-screen televisions and minibars.
When booking, we recommend checking two things: an included breakfast and a private balcony. Book your guestroom at Hotel Ginebra before it is too late!
Address: Pelai, 9

There’s nothing quite as comforting as those trips to Grandma’s, which is why Hotel Pelayo is such a gem. Sure, rooms are simple and a bit floral, but everything feels like a home away from home. This includes the amenities available, such as air conditioning, bathtubs, kettles and free Wi-Fi. Ask ahead for a room with a private patio, a wonderful spot on warm, sunny days.
There’s no breakfast here, but you are bound to find something affordable and delicious in any number of the cafes and restaurants nearby. Pick Hotel Pelayo as your home base in Barcelona.
