Barcelona has many family-friendly hotels or hostels where you can stay, or you can rent an apartment for your family. Whatever you choose, there are many options in all of Barcelona’s districts that fit all budgets. Eixample and Ciutat Vella are the most central and popular areas, but Barcelona is an easy walking city (with good public transport too!) so it should be no trouble wherever you are staying.
It is worth checking what baby services might be included with your accommodation, like travel cots. If necessary, you can rent baby gear from some of the agencies that supply it for either short or long stays, such as www.backpackbaby.com. Their useful service can allow you to travel light and simply rent whatever you need in Barcelona, such as strollers, buggies, car seats, cots and high chairs. You can also rent fun items such as beach toys and baby pools – there’s no need to buy things you can’t take back home with you, and no need for the kids to go without either!

The bus, metro or even taxis are-pretty affordable compared to other European cities. These are the most popular options, but you can also rent a car or a bike. There are several travel card options, and remember that kids under 4 travel for free.
