Barcelona's Best Hotels For Football Fans and Sports Lovers

When most people think of Barcelona, images of Gaudi, tapas, the Mediterranean and pitchers of Sangria usually come to mind. For football fans however, they know there's more to it. Barca, the city's renowned football team is hailed both nationally and internationally for it's incredible track record. Catalans pride themselves on this club team that has won year after year with Argentinean star Lionel Messi as a household name. For Barcelona and Catalunya and for football (soccer) lovers worldwide, Barcelona is the place to be. Camp Nou stadium is where the magic happens, and for those looking to be as close to it as possible, there are a number of well situated hotels, just a short drive, taxi ride, or even a quick walk away. The Stadium is definitely worth touring, if you're into European football. The story of how the team earned its stripes and how it came to thrive today is inspiring. Not to mention the wonderful museum with all the Barca Paraphernalia you could imagine, even for the most avid of souvenir collectors. The hotels that are situated close to Camp Nou range from 3-5 stars with many of them in the higher-end bracket. But don't be deterred if your budget isn't great and you still want to stay in the vicinity. There are cheaper hostels close by and Barcelona is small enough that no matter where you stay, it never takes more than 20-30 minutes to get from one place to another.
