3 Budget-Friendly Hotels Near Barcelona’s Colorful Experiences

When savvy travelers think of colorful sights in Barcelona, Gaudí’s Sagrada Familia tends to come to mind first. However, there are other places in Barcelona to enjoy a vivid visual experience away from the center of the cathedral’s tourist bustle. Colors abound in northeastern Spain, especially in summertime, and Hipmunk has you covered for landing affordable hotels in Barcelona.

Hotel Hesperia Ramblas near La Boquería

Hotel Hesperia Ramblas is your best bet for enjoying La Boquería, Barcelona’s famous market just off La Rambla. Starting at $104, Hesperia’s rooms are basic, so you are paying for the convenience of being able to enjoy everything offered at La Boquería. You’ll find yourself mere footsteps away from enjoying some of the world’s freshest fruits, smoothies, and natural juices. For many first-time visitors to La Boquería, some of the technicolor fruits don’t seem edible, but don’t worry, the vendors are friendly and help to introduce you to these new fruits. Many offer a taste before you buy in order to help you make up your mind.

Eurostars Grand Marina near Vioko

Located directly on the water, Eurostars Grand Marina in Barcelona provides access to La Barceloneta where you will find Vioko. If you were to judge Vioko by its brown awning, you’d never anticipate the colorful delights that await you inside this gelato and candy store. You’ll find that even eating in Barcelona can be as colorful as the rest of its sights. You’ll have a large budget left over to get your fill of sweets, since a room at Eurostars Grand Marina starts at just $125. If your overindulgence leads you to search out an exciting activity, consider booking Excursiopedia’s Barcelona Segway Tour. After all, the tour provides insight on 2,000 years of history in your corner of Barcelona. You’ll explore Roman ruins, ride through the Gothic Quarter, and explore La Barceloneta’s beaches.

ALMA Barcelona Hotel near Tibidabo

The priciest option on this list, ALMA Barcelona Hotel is your most luxurious Hipmunk hotel option in Barcelona. The hotel’s five-star rooms start at $253. For taking in the views from Tibidabo, it’s a good idea to stay an arm’s length away from the base of the mountain, since tour buses and school groups tend to clog the atmosphere with congestion. ALMA Barcelona gives you the option for comfort less than 30 minutes away by car. Once you wind your way up the mountain, you’ll treat yourself to the greatest panoramic view of everything Barcelona has to offer. The ferris wheel at Tibidabo’s amusement park adds a touch of sparkle.

Your Hipmunk Hotel Will Be Your Relaxation Oasis

After drinking down neon fruit juices, gazing out over Barcelona from the Crayola-colored ferris wheel, and sampling truffles in their iridescent wrappers, you’ll be glad that Hipmunk helped you find budget-friendly hotels where you can unwind nearby. Barcelona’s colors and energy make it one of the most exciting stops on your itinerary, and as such, it is often known for not being the most relaxing stop on your travels. This is particularly true during the summer high season. Rest assured that you’ve gotten some good deals at these convenient hotels.
