Barcelona city centre is only 20 minutes away by cab from Barcelona International airport so it might be just as well to stay in the city centre if you have enough time for a quick sightseeing visit. I have presented the following hotels in order of closeness to Barcelona International Airport - El Prat de Llobregat.

Nobody likes waiting around in long queues to get their COVID test. The Express COVID testing service we recommend only works by appointment ensuring that you get tested when you need to without having to queue. Getting your COVID test in the city centre before your flight or cruise offers many advantages over getting tested in the Airport or from a cruise liner. You have your certificates on time without a rush, you have time to correct inaccuracies on your certificate and you have time to re-arrange your flight or other travel plans if you should test positive. To learn more about how to get your COVID travel certificates valid for planes, cruises and other transport, follow one of the links below to learn more.
