I am looking for a nice hotel to stay in (and reasonably priced.) for a family of 4 at barcelona port night before our cruise next summer 2011,most hotels are limited to how many people stay in a room in europe,and would love to see the disney magic come into port.

Hello there,

We have just booked the Petit Palace BCN, Roger de Lluria St 21. We have not stayed there before but they were one of the few in the location that we wanted that had rooms for 4. The site that we booked with charged 534 euros (for 3 nights in total) and I think class children upto the age of 17 for sharing. We stayed right opposite the Gaudi Cathedral this August (2 rooms) but we have chosen to stay closer to the good restaurants and El Corte Ingles (for carrying the alcohol back to the hotel for the cruise)

Good look and enjoy your cuise. I know we did and will next July.

Thank you for asking this question. We are also planning to stay in Barcelona with a family of four and was wondering the same thing.

Thank you may consider this,but at the moment hoping there maybe a hotel right at the port,but if they are going to be expensive due to needing 2 rooms will look at a little further from port.

Try this place -

www.hispanos7suiza.com

We stayed there back in 2007. Its located near the Sagrada Familia and the tourist bus line. They are suites so the kids get separate sleeping arrangements. Breakfast was included. Nice boutique hotel.

Post cruise, we stayed at one of the American budget chains - think it was Best Western on La Rambla. They accomodated all 4 of us. Decent hotel - nothing spectacular.

Good luck!

We stayed at the Hotel Jazz and loved it. I booked a triple corner suite and it was great. The couch would easily accommodate 2 kids. I think they let you put 4 in the room. It has an amazing rooftop pool and a great location. I think i paid 145.00 euros. If you can, try to spend more than one night in Barcelona. It was my favorite city on the cruise.

We just came back from the transatlantic (wah!) and stayed in Barcelona. We stayed at Praktik Ramblas and it was very good for families. We had a triple room and the room had a king-sized bed and a fold out (but comfortable enough for my husband) double futon bed. My mom had a double room which was a King bed and a single futon.

The rooms were relatively spacious with a good sized bathroom, and had two balconies that looked over Las Ramblas. It was a very nice, upscale area, and the hotel was very clean and a nice mix of modern decoration in an older-style building. The simplicity of the room complemented our crazy amount of luggage and kid detritus. We requested a balcony. We paid just 205 euros for 2 nights in September, Thurs/Fri night.

Was right around the corner from a great little 5 euro breakfast place (called Divinus, highly recommend and YOU HAVE TO TRY THEIR HOT CHOCOLATE), and from the red and blue HOHO lines. Very central, very convenient, and about 10 minutes to the port by taxi. I highly recommend the place.

You're welcome. We did walk up Las Ramblas from the port to our hotel with the children plus my disabled sister (she walks with a stick). Though we would never do it with the cases. It cost 5 people plus luggage 20 euros from hotel to port.

The hotel (Both last August and Petite Palace) are on the Bus route, tourist and local so really handy. In a cab the port is actually only 5 minutes away (10 during rush hour). We have booked Petit Palace for the location to shops and amenities as we would rather just have everything on the doorstep for the 3 days and only get a cab to the port.

Have you tried going onto the Meet section of other Med cruise dates as some of them have really useful info about accomodation including apartments and hotels. Good luck

From my memory there is no where to stay at the port. We did go down the night before ans eat at a wonderful Tapas Bar and watch the ships coming in.....Did not see the Magic come in ....I believe iit arrived during the night.

We were a family and stayed at the Renaissance at the airport. We had 2 rooms (connecting). One was a king and the other had 2 queens. The hotel was wonderful!!! We had free internet, conceirge service (they were great!!!), free shuttle from airport, free shuttle to the port, and free shuttle to and from the city (las Ramblas).

Also had an area with complientary drinks (soft drinks for the kids) and snacks. Also had a wonderful breakfast.

There is a catch to this hotel though....if you make a reservation make sure you are on the "executive" side. we paid 122 euros a night. I thought it was an awesome deal because of all the free shuttles....we saved a fortune in taxis!!!

I second that! We loved Barcelona too. It was very tourist friendly an easy to get around. Also, the airlines lost one of our bags, and it took 2 days to get to us. If we hadn't stayed a couple nights in Barcelona we would have been without a suitcase on the trip. Which reminds me (off topic) - its better to mix clothes within each suitcase instead of packing a suitcase for each person just in case a bag goes missing.

From what i can see maybe not quite at the port but very close there is Eurostars Grand Marina Hotel,but i cant get a price for next year or see how many could fit in their rooms,(maybe too early).Although everyones examples of these other hotels are very tempting.Has anyone ever stayed at the Grand marina?
