Looking back just a few years, the obvious go-to choice for a Barcelona accommodation was a hotel. After all, hotels aim to be a ‘home away from home’, providing travellers with a decent selection of amenities such as on-site restaurants, cleaning services, and concierge assistance. However, today things are a little different. An increasing number of travellers are now turning their attention to Barcelona villas instead. Why? Because there a number of advantages of villas in Barcelona that hotels simply can’t offer.

These advantages include the following:

Separate Bedrooms

While some larger hotel rooms can comfortably accommodate families and groups, there’s nothing like having your own private space! If you’re travelling with family or friends, a family villa in Barcelona allows you to be together under the same roof, but also have your own space to acquire some private time. It really is the best of both worlds!

Kitchen Area

When you’re on holiday in Spain it’s important to immerse yourself in the local culture and try out some of the delicacies on offer at the nearby restaurants. However, being able to whip up some cheese on toast as a midnight snack or warm up some milk for the kids in your own kitchen is a huge benefit. 

Additional Privacy

Hotels are a great way to meet other like-minded travellers and make new friends, but sometimes you just need a bit more privacy. Staying in a Barcelona holiday rental means you never have to worry about the pool being busy or having loud neighbours in the next room. It’s your space.


Your time off is precious, so why spend it trying to fit in with someone else’s schedule? Staying in a vacation villa in Barcelona means that you can do what you want, when you want. While hotels may offer breakfast between 6 a.m. and 10 a.m., you can enjoy a nice bacon sandwich at 3 in the afternoon!
