If common ideas about travelling with pets might seem to generate panic or fears, in reality traveling with pets is much less complicated than it may seem at the outset. It is true that often animals’ transportation requires some documentation and evidence of certain vaccinations, but it is relatively easy to find accommodations that accept pets in any European city. Barcelona is not an exception, since the city has plenty of pet-friendly hotels. You can always find a comfortable option for yourself and your pet. If you are informed enough to choose the right place and surround your animal with the care he or she certainly deserves, your journey has all the raw material required to transform into your ideal trip and a totally problem-free experience.

This is one of the most famous hotels in Barcelona. It is located conveniently next to the beach and has a P.A.W. (“Pets are welcome”) marking; that is, the hotel welcomes guests with pets at or below the 18-kilogram weight limit. However, the nonhuman animal guest list is limited to dogs and cats.

W is one of the most luxurious hotels, where everything seems perfect – from the views out your window to the services provided. The terraces of the swimming pools, “SUN Deck” and “WET Deck,” feature incredible views over the sea. Moreover, this hotel offers its guests two restaurants: BRAVO24, which is run by the Michelin-starred chef, Carles Abellan, and WAVE restaurant.
