Where to Stay in Barcelona – Best Family Hotels in Barcelona

Looking for where to stay in Barcelona? This post should help. We lived in nearby Valencia for two years and visited Barcelona as often as we could.

Barcelona is an incredible city to explore with kids. There is so much to see and do all year round, from the Sagrada Familia and Park Güell to Camp Nou, the home stadium of FC Barcelona, just to mention a few. Many travelers like to visit Barcelona with kids in the summertime, but I can tell you from experience that Barcelona is lots of fun in winter, especially Christmastime in Barcelona!
