The plethora of hotels in Barcelona is quite unique due to the fact that the mayor of the city temporarily stopped issuing new licenses for accommodation services in 2016. Due to the popularity of the city, there was a desire to preserve some of the most historic buildings in Barcelona, in fear that they all would be turned into hotel rooms.
The consequence was that several exciting new Barcelona hotels opened shortly before the regulation came into effect. This means that there is an enormous amount of opportunities from brilliant beach hotels to amazing budget stays available in Barcelona.
