Barcelona Short Term Accommodation

These apartments and flats for rent in Barcelona are all short term rentals and are often 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. When booking explain your situation and 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, that’s a great option.

Short term rentals cover 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. Likewise, Bed and Breakfast accommodation is also an option for short term stays.
