With beautiful beaches, the oldest theme park in Europe and delicious foods to try, there are plenty of things to entertain children in Barcelona. Fortunately, there are also lots of great places for little ones to rest their heads after a busy day of adventures. Here’s our guide to the best family hotels in Barcelona.

H10 Madison

Kids need space, and this is in short supply when it comes to Barcelona hotels. The H10 Madison, however, is set in a big, beautifully restored building in the heart of the Ciutat Vella – so there’s plenty within walking distance, even for short legs. Adjoining rooms are an option, or junior suites sleep families of four. Children love to splash about in the rooftop pool here, and complimentary marshmallows are a sure-fire hit with the little ones.

Room Mate Carla

Boutique Hotel
4.6/5 (538 Reviews)

When travelling with small children, bathrooms with tubs are a blessing, and most at the Room Mate Carla have just that. Tasty and healthy snacks can be a godsend too, and you need reach no further than the minibar to appease peckish kids. Triple rooms are perfect for small families, plus a particularly efficient laundry service is on hand for any accidents. A city centre location puts many of the best sights within kid-friendly walking distance.
