City of tapas, architecture and football

General Information

Plaça de Sant Jaume is the ruling center of the Catalonia region and the center of the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona‘s Old Town. Due to this, hotels near the opera house are extremely expensive. Actually, together with hotels in the area of Plaça de Catalunya, hotels situated in this neighborhood are the most expensive ones in Barcelona. So we recommend them for those who want to be in the centre of the city and are ready to pay for it.
