Q: I am struggling to book family rooms. We are a family of four and need 2 nights in August near Barcelona Sants railway station and 1 night near Barcelona airport. Can you recommend any hotels which may suit?
A: Finding family rooms in hotels is always a problem in Barcelona as there is limited availability of this type of accommodation. Normally we would recommend an apartment rental for a family since it is generally cheaper for a family and easier to find availibility. Is it really important you stay right next to Sants station? If you can be more flexible there are many more hotels open to you even with as short as a 10 minutes Metro ride away. You can find these hotel on our Barcelona Hotel Map Barcelona is actually quite small and you can generally find your way around to most parts of the city by a short metro ride.
If you are certain you only need to stay near Barcelona Sant Station I recommend you follow the link below which will take you to the portion of our hotel map that shows hotels near Barcelona Sants. If you decide you can take a short metro ride then you have much more selection. I have also included below links to information pages on hotels near Barcelona Airport and also a link to Barcelona apartment rentals. I also recommend you read our article on "Family accommodation in Barcelona"
