Why do you recommend Barcelona for food?

Food, as with the whole of Spain, is a way of life. Whether enjoying sangria and olives outside a quiet cafe on ramble del poblenou or eating tapas at one of the many bars in La boquieria, you're pretty much surrounded by excellent fresh food. If you're a sea food lover, then you're in for a real treat. La boquieria market just off las ramblas is the place to be. You can't help but be inspired by the wonderful ingredients. You can either buy from the market and take away to cook yourself or as previously mentioned, eat from one of the many tapas bars, such as El quim or Barcentral, they're all amazing. Good food is everywhere in Barcelona. I recommend also you try Bar Mut. I could go on forever. Just go and eat!

    Hotels that Guests Love in Barcelona

    • Carrer de Enric Granados is the hidden gem of Barcelona, its absolutely breathtakingly beautiful. The staff is by far the best staff I have experienced in any hotel in not just Barcelona, but Spain. Excellent restaurant.

    • I booked this for our last night in Spain. The staff were amazing even letting us know that there would be a change back from day-light-savings time that night. The location is wonderful, very close to the Tetuan metro station and centre to so many of the main Barcelona attraction. While this is not a 5 star hotel, it is comfortable and great for the couple that just wants a place to sleep. Interesting the vending machine has cold beer in it! Some good restaurants nearby!

    • Our stay at La Casa Gran was brilliant, just what we were looking for, a friendly atmosphere with plenty of advice as to what to do & see in Barcelona. The location is central, with a hop on hop off tourist bus stop just around the corner. We were provided with an excellent map indicating a wide variety of local restaurants & bars all within walking distance of the B & B. Our experience at La Casa Gran was far better than any of the Hotels that we stayed during our tour of Spain..

    • We stayed here on our last night in Barcelona after arriving late in the evening from Valencia. It was in an ideal location for getting the 6.42am airport train the next morning. It is a very modern hotel. We found the lighting in the bedroom and hallway a little too dim but not a big issue. The shower was great. One good thing was having a kettle in the room and also an ironing board and iron. We didn't find these in any other hotels in Spain and it would have been nice to make a cup of tea in morning so this was nice..

    • This hotel is within walking distance to everything you want, hop on hop off buses, The Ramblas, restaurants its all right there. Excellent breakfast, rooms lovely and clean, staff very friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed our stay in Barcelona, for first time tourists to Spain it was one of our highlights. Thank you Hotel Turin for making our stop over enjoyable.
