If football’s your thing, then Barcelona obviously means Barça! Barcelona FC has long been one of the city’s sporting icons, and many tourists visit specifically for all things football.

Find somewhere to stay near Camp Nou

If your stay in Barcelona is going to be dedicated to all things football, then Camp Nou is going to be the focus of your plans. Once you’ve booked your flight, your train ticket or somewhere to park your car, accommodation is next on the list!

Budget-friendly hotels

If you’re looking for a budget hotel a stone’s throw from the stadium, we recommend the Madanis. There are, in fact, two Madanis hotels, with a 3 star option and a 4 star option, so there’s something for every budget. Prices start at €45 per room per night, truly excellent value for money given the quality of the accommodation on offer.

For more information, see our article on the Madanis hotels.

If you can afford it, go and see a match at Camp Nou: it’s an extraordinary experience, and well worth it. The atmosphere is electric, but still friendly. For instructions on how to buy tickets and on getting to Camp Nou, see our article Going to a match at the Barça-Barcelona FC stadium.

The price of tickets varies widely depending on the teams and players involved and on the tournament in question. By choosing carefully, you’ll find that it is possible to experience the excitement of a match at Camp Nou without breaking the bank.

Visit the Barça-Barcelona FC museum at Camp Nou

A football-themed stay in Barcelona would not be complete without visiting the Barça-Barcelona FC museum at Camp Nou! Discover what goes on behind the scenes at the stadium and explore the history of this quasi-mythical club.
