Filed in Spanish Grand Prix Travel Guide by on 3 Comments

Planning a trip to the 2019 Spanish Grand Prix at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya on May 10-12? Here’s our guide to the best places to stay in Barcelona. 

Support the future development of F1Destinations by reserving your accommodation through the links on this page. You won’t pay more and we receive a small commission. We also recommend adding accommodation and transfers to your Official Ticket Package from F1 Experiences.

The great thing about Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya is its proximity to the center of Barcelona, meaning you have the perfect opportunity to enjoy a city break and an F1 getaway rolled into one. Barcelona has accommodation to suit every taste and budget, and prices are not as inflated on Grand Prix weekend as in some other cities. If you want to pull out all the stops, the city has more than its fair share of 5-star hotels and luxury villas available over the race weekend. The F1 teams will mostly be staying in hotels around the swanky Avinguda Diagonal and the Marina, so why not see if you can bag yourself a room right in the thick of it?

  • Stylish modern hostel with free Wi-Fi
  • Shared kitchen, free tea and coffee and large terrace

Barcelona accommodation tips

  • Barcelona has a huge selection of super hip hostels; a great choice if you are traveling alone and want to make some new friends
  • Renting an apartment is worth considering if you are travelling with friends and want to keep costs down. Airbnb is still big in Barcelona, despite a recent crackdown on “unlicensed apartments”
  • If you rent a car or have your own transport, you can also consider staying in one of the beach towns on the Costa Brava, like Lloret de Mar or Blanes. It should take a little under one hour to get to the circuit.

    Hey. I will be staying in the heart of the city that is Rambla during the race weekend. Can you please tell me what are the possible hotels the teams would be staying at? I searched the area you mentioned. But they’re quite too many to narrow down the options.
    Also, is it anyway possible to get a glimpse of drivers during their stay at the hotel? If yes, then what’s the best time to go see them?
