Accommodation in Barcelona
Accommodation is just one of the many things to consider when deciding to take a course. Barcelona, like any other large European city, has a huge variety of places to stay, with a wide range of prices!
Trainees on our teacher training courses have basically two accommodation options:
- Find accommodation for yourself
- Ask us to help you.
Our Accommodation Service
If you would like the Teacher Training Department to help you find accommodation, we are able to arrange a room rent. This is a rented room in an apartment, sharing facilities, i.e. bathroom, kitchen, with the usual tenants of the apartment, who are often ex-trainees and English teachers.
The room rent is €400 per month, (proportional for shorter courses) inclusive of all costs except telephone, and our fee for this service is €75.
You will be sent an accommodation request form with details when you have been accepted for the course.
Finding your own accommodation in Barcelona
You may also be able to find accommodation using your own contacts or the Internet. The cost of a room in Barcelona starts at about €350 a month (and the sky’s the limit!), with virtually everyone in Barcelona - as in most Spanish cities - living in a flat (see image, top of page).
Particularly for longer stays, a lot of our Celta course students use our CeltaStars support group as a good means of finding accommodation.
If you are going to look on the Internet, Loquo.com is a good place to start and you will find other accommodation websites on our Barcelona directory.
