Barcelona Short Term Accommodation

These apartments and flats for rent in Barcelona are all short term rentals and are usually used for holiday rentals. However, if you’re relocating to Barcelona, it’s not a bad idea to rent a flat for the short term  (two weeks to one month) while you’re finding a flat to rent for the longer term.

This is a good option particularly if you have a family. It reduces the pressure to find long-term accommodation and therefore removes a lot of the stress. If you explain your situation when booking, companies will often let you reserve a flat for a few weeks with the option to leave early if you find your ideal home quickly, especially if you’re out of the peak summer season.

Short term rental covers a minimum of one day to a maximum of a few months. Flats are fully equipped and in most cases also provide linen and bedding within the total cost, although one or two quote this as an extra fee. Bed and Breakfast accommodation is also an option for short term stays.
