Founded as a Roman city in the Middle Ages, Barcelona is the capital and largest city of the autonomous community of Catalonia, Barcelona has a rich cultural heritage and is today an important cultural centre and a major tourist destination. The city is a major cultural, economic, and financial centre in southwestern Europe, and as a leading world city, Barcelona's influence in global socio-economic affairs qualifies it for global city status.
Barcelona features what are uniquely referred to as aparthotels, that combine the best aspects of a serviced apartment living with the facilities of a hotel. This should make it fairly ideal for workation travel. They will usually have nearly twice the space of a boutique hotel room but with a kitchen and living area found in the typical apartment. There are thousands of hotels and temporary living accommodations in Barcelona, and you can expect to find short-term rentals, holiday and long-term apartment rentals, flats for rent, and AirBnB furnished and extended stay rentals as well.
Free wifi hotspots have been made widely available in Barcelona due to a city council initiative that launched Barcelona WIFI back in 2011 that placed wifi antennas throughout the city. "Barcelona WiFi" is the foremost free public wifi network that travelers will want to look for. There are likely to be close to 2,000 of these wifi hotspots in the network located throughout the city in libraries, museums, civic buildings, markets and at the beach. There is even free wifi installed in the city’s buses and at metro stations. View a map of the Barcelona WIFI hotspots at this link, on this Google Map or on the website barcelonacheckin.com.
