I would have expected there to be a large number of Barceloneta Beach Hotels and Hostels but there are surprisingly few.
To be perfectly honest, the 5 star turn in Barceloneta accommodation is
the magnificent W Barcelona, with Pullman Skipper coming some way behind
both in terms of location and luxury.
Hotel 54 is an excellent
mid-range option and then the category drops significantly to the Campus
del Mar Student Residence and the Bedcelona Beach Club and Equity Point
Sea Barceloneta hostels.
I have created a separate page dealing with apartment rentals in Barceloneta.
