If you're needing a lush trip away, there's no better place in Downtown Barcelona than the Mandarin Oriental, Barcelona (Passeig De Gracia, 38-40) or The Serras (Passeig de Colom, 9). If that's not what you're looking for, have a look at the Mercer Hotel Barcelona (Carrer del Lledo 7) or the Hostal Bcn 46 (C/ Roger de Llúria 46). You'll be able to save some bucks and still have an amazing vacation.
There are a number of places to stay just a stone's throw away from Sagrada Familia. Stay at the Central Apartments Barcelona or the castro Exclusive Residences SPA Sagrada Familia and you'll be able to enjoy the neighborhood at its finest while being right in the middle of all the fun!
Put your seat upright, switch off the in-flight film, and get ready to touch down at Barcelona International Airport (BCN). Want to know the best part? You'll be just 8 miles (13 kilometers) to the southwest of Downtown Barcelona.
Roam the streets in Downtown Barcelona and experience its unique culture. If you plan to explore a little further afield, reserving a rental car via Travelocity will definitely help.
Will you be arriving by plane? Organize to pick up your rental at the start of your journey at Barcelona International Airport. Alamo Rent A Car and Enterprise are just a hop, skip and jump away.
Sometimes the easiest place to rent a car is right in the heart of the city. Europcar is a handy outlet found at Gv De Les Corts Catalanes 680. Enterprise at Calle De Muntaner 45 is another place to look into.
Downtown Barcelona is an excellent place to stay if you're thinking of visiting Sagrada Familia. Pull on your most comfortable walking shoes and grab your camera bag — this world-renowned attraction is only a stroll from there.
Casa Mila and the Casa Batllo are some excellent attractions that are within an easy stroll or a very short drive from the middle of this neighborhood. See if you can get to them all.
Attended for worship and spiritual reflection, Barcelona Cathedral is a prominent holy landmark. That said, you need not be a faithful church-goer to check out this serene space. Seeking more nearby options? Sure, singing along to music on your computer is nice, but it'll never beat the excitement of watching a fantastic live performance! So why not make your way to a concert at Palau de la Musica Catalana? But that's not all. Planning to check off Arc de Triomf? It's well worth hitting the history books first to educate yourself about the beginnings of this impressive structure.
Take the opportunity to explore some nearby destinations such as Portal de l'Angel or La Ribera. Portal de l'Angel is approximately 0.1 miles (0.2 kilometers) from Downtown Barcelona, while La Ribera is 0.4 miles (0.6 kilometers) away.
