When to go?

Barcelona is a great city to visit all year round, except perhaps during the last couple of weeks in August when many of the smaller shops and bars are shut. The heat in summer (June to September) can be intense, while spring and autumn are generally pleasantly warm and sunny. December to February is chilly and quiet, except for the Christmas and New Year period, which the Catalans embrace with gusto. Weekends are cheaper than midweek stays at this hotel.

Author's tips

Ask for room 510 or 511 for views of La Pedrera; avoid rooms near the lift (elevator); but remember that all 'double' rooms are really 2 singles pushed together. Oh - and don't hire a car: parking is absurdly expensive round here.

Save to favouritesPrintMailHotel ActualJust round the corner from - and with views of - Gaudí’s famous La Pedrera building, Hotel Actual is refreshingly simple and efficient, catering to business people during the week and visitors during the weekends. Owned by the trendy interiors shop Gimeno 102 on Passeig de Grŕcia, it's full of stylish touches, from the beautiful flower arrangements to the mellow jazz music played in the lobby. Bedrooms are identikit-cool - modern, minimalistic and two-tone - but with enough comforts to feel welcoming. Junior Suites provide a dash of exuberance, with intricately painted ceilings and the odd chandelier. Reception staff add to that with excellent English and handy tips on tapas and tourism, as well as free maps. There's free internet access, an excellent buffet breakfast, and more cafés plus a metro stop around the corner. If you feel like splurging for dinner, the renowned restaurant Moo (within Hotel Omm) is right opposite; you can splash out, knowing you're saving plenty on the room prices!
