Where to stay during SONAR 2015?
Even if you think that perhaps sleep sleep little, is always nice to have a bed to rest 😉 Precisely for this reason, we recommend that you look at these cheap accommodation. In the center of the city: the hostel Barcelona City Centre, Barcelona City Ramblas pension and, if you prefer a hotel, the Universal Hotel.
The three properties that we recommend are ideal for nights dream and they all have the same side a metro station that connects you directly without transshipment scenarios Sonar.
