Often it's difficult to track down a cheap hotel in Barcelona using only the internet reservation companies. The reason is that many budget hotels normally aren't registered with hotel reservation companies for 2 reasons:
1) They make smaller margins and therefore cannot afford the fees associated with signing up with an on-line reservation service.
2) On-line reservation companies don't make as much money with discount hotels, so they don't spend as much time to sign them up to their databases - this is true for many of the cheap hotels in Barcelona. However, recently, things have been changing, and the on-line reservation companies are beginning to increase their portfolios with low-cost hotels.
I've scoured Barcelona city centre for 2 star hotels and have presented the ones I could find with a web site on this page. Many of them offer hotel reservation directly through their own web sites, or you can just give them a call - if you're lucky you'll find someone who speaks English :-)
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.

EXPRESS COVID TESTING
I have not personally reviewed any of these hotels however they are registered with the Barcelona hotel association which is an official body in Barcelona looking after the interest for hotels in the city. I have also selected these hotels because they are all close, or in the city centre and have a metro stop within walking distance of the hotel.
