You can find hotels dotted around the outside of Park Guell, at a variety of rates, with some closer to the city centre than others. The park covers a large area just outside the city centre and, though distant from other major attractions such as Montjuic, Las Ramblas and Plaça Catalunya, is still very popular with visitors to Barcelona. If money is no object, why not settle down at ABAC Restaurant Hotel Barcelona, which is located a short distance to the west of Park Guell. This is a 5-star boutique hotel featuring all the luxury trimmings including a 2-Michelin star restaurant.
Park Guell surrounds the house where Gaudi once lived, where there is an amazing museum containing Gaudi's collection of earth-inspired furniture and personal items. The major attractions of the park include walkways under and over stone pillars constructed in Gaudi’s signature style, and numerous mosaic tile and stone sculptures, all of which demonstrate a strong influence derived from the natural world.
As with most of the tourist spots in the city, the top of Park Guell contains a terrace where you can enjoy another spectacular view of the park and the surrounding city. In true Gaudi fashion all of the benches are made from the same brilliant tile mosaic used in the dragon at the Park’s southern entrance and also on the stone animals throughout the park. You could easily spend all day up on the terrace, sipping coffee and watching the entertainers, but the park is vast and beautiful, and there is much to explore.
You can make several trips to the park without getting tired of it, so you may be happy to stay in a hotel near Park Guell for your trip to Barcelona.

If you’re looking for something a little more inexpensive, Hotel Travessera Barcelona is a great value 2-star hotel that is family-owned and is the ideal accommodation for families visiting the city.
