Relax by the Mediterranean sea or bask in the historical splendor of this enchanting city and its architectural wonders that span more than 2,000 years! From stunning Catalan as well as contemporary architecture, treasures of the medieval and ancient Roman city to markets that light up the senses as well as leisure, entertainment and museums, there’s always something to see around the neighborhoods or districts of Barcelona. There is also great nightlife for partygoers in Las Ramblas.

For the more adventurous, you can make your way up to Horta, get to know the charm of the Sant Andreu district, see a lesser-known side of the Eixample and bask in some amazing views. Later, relax on the waterfront while taking in the splendor of the Mediterranean. Here are our top picks for places to stay in Barcelona from Vrbo.

1. Apartment in the heart of the city (from 294 USD)

The location of this property is really good with the metro essentially just across the street. The neighborhood (it is in the Gothic Quarter, in the heart of the historical area of the city) has many cafes and places to explore as well dining options.

Just a few minute’s walk from restaurants, shopping, the waterfront and the main city square, and the Plaza Catalunya. If you can, get tickets to a show at the Palau de Musica Catalana which is practically around the corner. With a double decker tour bus pickup location very close and the wonderful Market just a short walk away, you also get a small grocery shop right downstairs.

The apartment is clean and the kitchen is well equipped with pots, pans and cutlery enabling guests to cook their own meals, although there are so many recommended restaurants in close proximity. Other amenities in the property include two baths, washer/dryer, tub and a crib for families with an infant. Guests also get sound blocking window shutters which make it quiet enough for light sleepers.

The host is very hands on, even arranging taxis to and from the airport and providing quick responses to questions, ensuring that everything goes smoothly.
