Hotel Rec Barcelona

This new-build hotel near the Arc de Triomf is on my list for two reasons – it’s cheap by Barcelona standards, and because one of my favourite restaurants occupies half the ground floor.

Now, cheap and value may not actually equate. The Rec is not for you unless you don’t mind a small room. Standard rooms are only 15sqm. The Superior Deluxe rooms are better at 25sqm, but you’re paying more, obviously.

Still, the bigger rooms offer relative value. Plus, the Rec is an adults-only establishment, so if the pitter patter of little feet grate on you, this may be a good choice.

A rooftop terrace, with a pool, bar, and lounge round-out what is not a bad offering.
