The Eixample is a popular area in Barcelona where one can find many tourist attractions, shopping areas and an extremely active nightlife, which makes it highly recommended for reserving a hotel room. Moreover, there are many hotels with good booking prices which are ideal for families, but there are many luxurious 5 Star Hotels as well. Another advantage for this area is that it is easily accessible by the means of public transportation, especially around Plaça de Catalunya. There are many metro lines that traverse the district and the Barcelona Aerobus that connects the city to Barcelona’s Airport also has a station here.
In the southern part of the district, within and around Plaça de Catalunya especially, accommodation is more expensive than in the northern side. One of the main factors for this is that the northern part of Eixample is a little bit further away from the centre, although the distance is not that big and the public transportation is quite well organized. Furthermore, there are many wide, inexpensive rooms which are ideal for families and large groups (for additional information – Hotels for Families in Barcelona and Kids and Families in Barcelona).
