Although we wrote this post in August, if you want to come to La Mercè 2014 Festival and sleep here, the earlier you book your room, the more money you’re going to save.
Mercè Festival 2014, local festivals in Barcelona, will move thousands of people each day (local and tourists). The occupancy of hotels and accommodations on these days is very high, and as the date gets closer there is little squares and prices rise.
From our experience, we can tell you that people there are two types of profiles of people looking for accommodation during the Mercè festival 2014. On the one side are those who want to sleep in the city center to maximize all the party time and also be able to walk back to sleep. The opposite profile is that while you enjoy the party, when looking for quiet rest, and though not to leave the city, itself seeking quieter areas.
Let’s see what accommodations can recommend for the Mercè Festival 2014.
If you are looking for cheap accommodation in Barcelona and also want to live the party at full intensity, we recommend a cheap guesthouse in Las Ramblas of Barcelona, where for a good price have all the essentials to relax after a busy day enjoying the city . We are talking about Barcelona City Ramblas guest house (also known as Pensión Canaletas), a modest pension directly opposite the famous Font de Canaletas. It is a key point to enjoy most celebrations and move walking through the city center. If you have to move to other settings, you can take the metro which is right outside the guest house.
Another accommodation option in the center of Barcelona during Mercè Festival is the Barcelona City Centre hostel, a quiet, clean and with everything you need to enjoy your stay. From this comfortable hostel, you can quickly walk to Plaça Catalunya, Passeig de Gràcia or any part of the city center. It’s also very well connected by public transport to the rest of the city.
But if you prefer sleep in a hotel during Mercè Festival 2014, an excellent choice to sleep well in the center of Barcelona is Universal Hotel (Barcelona City Hotel), a hotel located on Arago Street (Pau Claris corner) that lets you wake up a few minutes from Passeig de Gràcia in Barcelona modernist route.
We hope that these options will serve you to enjoy the city to the fullest of the city during Mercè Festival 2014. Remember not to wait to the last minute to book your room! 😉
