Q: I am looking for accommodation in Barcelona that has a sea view. Can you tell me which hotels, hostals/pensiones have a sea view in Barcelona?
A: There is a limited amount of accommodation in Barcelona that have a direct sea view. The sea front is mainly occupied by residential apartments or restaurants. There are a few hotels which have a sea view these I've listed below:
Barcelona Arts Hotel - offers spectacular sea view rooms along with views of Barceloneta beach. Make sure you specify a room with a sea view because the hotel has rooms at the back of the hotel where you do not have a sea view.
Eurostars Grand Marina hotel - Offers sea view rooms. These are of Port Vell and not the beach.
We have also written an article about hotels that are close to the beach. These hotels may not however have a direct view of the sea. Please see the following link to find out more about these hotels.
The other option is to consider an apartment rental which can offer you a beach view. You have more possibilities of finding an apartment with a sea view than a hotel. The area to look for is Barceloneta which is the main beach area in Barcelona.
Here is a link to our overview to Barceloneta along with a link to our photo gallery of Barceloneta:
