Barcelona has a great offer for accomodation. In the following addresses you will find information about some of the hotels in the city:

However, since it is located nearby the Northem Campus of the UPC, we would recommend you to have a look at the TORRE GIRONA RESIDENCE. This residence is located in one of the most quite and exclusive areas in Barcelona, nearly inside the Campus Nord (Northem Campus) of the UPC, in the district of Pedralbes. It works also as a hotel and its prices are quite cheap in relation to other hotels in the city. The residence was inaugurated in september 2002, as part of a dea with the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. There are three different types of rooms: single rooms (41 euros approx.), double rooms for 1 person (46 euros approx.), and double rooms for 2 people (68 euros aprox.). For these prices to be applied, you have to mention that you come to an event organized by the UPC (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya). Otherwise the rooms have a more expensive price. If they ask you for some contact person at UPC, provide them with the following information:
