With the abundant and varied accommodation available in the conference venue area, downtown Barcelona, there is little point in assigning a conference hotel, as experience has shown us. We do provide a series of recommended hotels as well as reliable search machines that will enable delegates to find suitable accommodation online easily, be it a hotel, hostel, B&B, or (room in) an apartment in the area near the university. People often opt for accommodation in the Eixample (behind the Historic Building of the University of Barcelona and to its left and right), the Centre (in front of the Historic Building: Raval, Rambles, Gòtic, Casc Antic i El Born), and Gràcia (a less touristy but thriving district a bit uphill, at the end of the Passeig de Gràcia boulevard). Make sure to book early so as to get a good deal.

The following hotels and hostels are within a walking distance (5-10 min) from the Historic building of the University of Barcelona (UB), our conference site (C/ Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes, 585 – 08007 Barcelona, Spain).
