You just have to discover the dates in which they can travel or come to an agreement with your chosen hotel for the range of dates in which the accommodation voucher can be used.

It is easier to have contact with those responsible and to clarify any details of the gift voucher with them. This way, you will avoid organizational problems and you will know all the conditions of the reservation in detail.

At this time, thanks to the offers of advance sales, you can book a hotel for the first months of 2017 with guarantees and very affordable prices.

Among the most interesting hotels, for location, price and originality in design and services, the Petit Palace chain with its boutique hotels built in historic buildings in Barcelona is one of the alternatives of modern accommodation with charm that you will find more affordable in price. Although the chain has its own official website, each of the hotels has its reservation website where they always ensure the user the lowest rate of all that can be found on the Internet.

The hotels with the most character in all their portfolio in Barcelona are the Hotel Petit Palace Boquería Garden– a 4 star hotel next to the Boquería with an interior patio that boasts a hundred year old, Mediterranean garden in which you can have breakfast every day; the Petit Palace Barcelona – also 4-star but with a more functional design and a more modern and technological profile is ideal for travelers who need maximum guarantees of comfort rather than a place with charm. Finally, there is the Petit Palace Museum Barcelona, which is an authentic gem of modernist art. In addition to occupying one of the most unique buildings of modernist Barcelona (the Garriga Nogués house), it has an interior design carefully detailed, with very eclectic areas full of personality.

The Vincci Hotels chain is also another highly recommended choice as a getaway gift option for Barcelona, in accommodation stamped with character. Its Vincci Gala is an example of how much the hotel design sector has advanced in the Catalan capital, creating a rest and relaxation area that looks like an authentic museum in which different styles and artistic inspirations come together.

Outside the hotels sector, at lower prices, you have the possibility of booking a hostel. A hostel? Yes, really a hostel! The Generator Barcelona (of the international chain Generator Hostels) is a very practical accommodation for families, groups of friends and young people who like active trips and places that are tailored to every need, practical, versatile and, ultimately, very functional. All this without renouncing being able to rest in rooms decorated in excellent taste, modern furnishings and up to the minute equipment and technology.
