Uptown Accommodation

Stay in a Cheaper Part of Barcelona

Find a Place Outside the City Center...

For many travelers, finding a place in the city centre may not be an option for a number of reasons. Although being in the city centre can be convenient, it can also be more noisy, expensive, full of tourists, and lack a certain "authenticity" as a place where people actually live. You don't have to stay outside but near Barcelona to save money, you can still stay inside the city, but rather than choose an accommodation in the city centre, there are cheaper options nearby in the most uptown and residential zones.

Luckily, Barcelona has a great public transport system, so even if you stay in a non-central residential part of the city, you'll normally never be more than 15 minutes from the city centre! The city is quite small, so getting from uptown to downtown is very easy and you could even walk it most of the time!

Finding an apartment outside the city centre is a more budget and cheap alternative that will allow you to live among the locals, experience the everyday Barcelona city lifestyle, and enjoy hidden gems that are off the beaten path. For these reasons, sometimes holiday accommodation outside the city centre isn't just an alternative, but a top choice.

All in all, staying outside the Barcelona city centre is a great choice to explore the city while staying well connected.

Here are some of the best places to stay outside but near the city centre:

  • Sants and Les Corts are the zones that are best connected to the airport. In these areas you can find the Monastery of Pedralbes, Camp Nou Stadium, Montjuïc, The National Art Musuem of Catalona, and much more. They are areas of high-standing.
  • Gracia and Sarriá-Sant Gervasi are two charming uptown zones where you'll find Park Güell and Tibidabo. In terms of attractions there are many hidden gems to be discovered in these areas.
  • Horta-Guinardó, Nou Barris and Sant Andreu feature long streets and 19th century farm houses. These zones are higher up than many other parts of the city so there are various places within them that feature some stunning views over Barcelona. Don't miss the Parc Laberint d'Horta in the Horta district.
  • Sant Martí and Diagonal Mar-Forum are areas that host some of the calmer beaches of the city. Poblenou is a new neighbourhood that has a vibrant and fresh atmosphere and Diagonal-Mar is the best place in the city to practice watersports.

There are also areas where you can find accommodation on the outskirts of Barcelona, like Hospitalet de Llobregat, Esplugues de Llobregat, Badalona, Mataró, El Masnou, Tiana, and Alella.
