Accommodation in Barcelona
To ensure that your stay in the city is both friendly and comfortable we are delighted to be able to provide you with quality accommodation in Barcelona. We offer three distinctive accommodation options, which are:
If you choose to stay in an apartment you will share your accommodation with other students, ensuring you get to discover each other’s various cultures. Alongside being an opportunity to make friends from all over the world you have the chance to practice and improve your spoken Spanish with your flatmates.
At this type of accommodation you can choose between a single or a double room, making full use of the communal living room, fully equipped kitchen and shared bathroom.
Distance to the school: Max 35 mins with public transport.
If you are looking for complete immersion into Spanish culture we recommend staying with a host family. At a host family you will only ever speak Spanish, which provides the perfect complimentary learning opportunity in addition to our in school teaching methods.
All of our host families have been carefully selected and are experienced in hosting students from foreign countries. Your host family will welcome you as an addition to their household, and you can take part in their daily lives, allowing you to better get to know the Spanish customs and lifestyle.
Almost all of our host families live between 20 and 25 minutes on the metro from the school, and they all offer breakfast or half board, which generally consists of breakfast and dinner. When staying with a guest family you will have a single room.
Residence accommodation is only available during the high season. We work with multiple residences which are located near to our school, ensuring you enjoy an increased level of comfort when you have finished class. Not far away from your residence accommodation you will find the beach, where you can enjoy the Mediterranean Sea and the beautiful Costa Brava.
If you choose to stay in a residence you can book either a double or a single room. Please take into consideration the fact that we are only able to accept bookings for double rooms from two students travelling together.
Distance to the school: Max 20 mins with public transport.
Please note: In some cases residence accommodation may be available during mid-season. Contact us.
