Barcelona holiday rental apartment
Since the late twentieth century, Barcelona has become one of the iconic cities in the world. For this reason, there are many travelers who decide to visit this wonderful Mediterranean city, discover the unique artworks of Gaudí and enjoy the Barcelona leisure offer. Barcelona has turned into one of the most desirable cities to visit and every year more and more people from all over the world decide to spend their holidays in this beautiful city.
Therefore, the opening of new hotels and holiday apartments in Barcelona has increased exponentially year by year in order to meet the huge demand for tourists coming to Barcelona and looking for a nice place to sleep and relax after a long day visiting. Thus, Barcelona has become one of the great cities that attracts more tourists in the world such as Tokyo, Shanghai, London, Paris, Rome, New York,…
Holiday tourism has grown disproportionately since 1960. Formerly, only the wealthy families could spend summer holidays travelling and resting. Most citizens did not enjoy the holidays and just few people travelled to other countries and continents. Life took place in the city where people were born and only some sought to improve their future in big cities where it was easier to prosper.
From 1960, families started spending a few weeks of their lives resting out of their hometown, looking for the beach, the mountains or just a change of scenery. Gradually a large range of services has been developed to accommodate these people who become tourists and require new services tailored to their holiday needs.
Barcelona has 9600 legal holiday apartments with license to be rented to tourists. This sector generates more than 1500 direct jobs in Barcelona. Tourists coming to Barcelona for holidays appreciate more and more the comfort, privacy and freedom of schedules that offers staying in holiday apartmetns. Moreover, having the possibility to cook in your own apartment is also a plus as you can eat what you like and can save some money not going to restaurants every day.
In the case of Barcelona, the oldest areas with a longer tradition (Ciutat Vella, Sagrada Familia, Gracia, el Born,…) are those most in demand and those where tourists prefer to hire their holiday rental apartment and stay during their vacation.
