Part of the appeal of Barcelona is its wide range of accommodation on offer. Hotels of all grades as well as budget back-packer hostels can be found in the city.

The hotel Ritz has individually designed rooms that cost over 500 euros per night. At the other end of the scale the budget hostel ‘INOUT’ costs as little as 6 euros per night. Within the city major hotel chains such as Best Western and Holiday Inn are available.

One of the major sports facilities in the city is the Nou Camp stadium, home ground of FC Barcelona. This stadium is a major tourist attraction offering tours and a museum.

Due to its growing popularity, Barcelona has a large Tourist Information Office providing information in a number of languages and an accommodation booking service.

It should also be remembered that Barcelona is an important destination for business visitors and there are a number of conference and exhibition centres such as Barcelona International Convention Center (CCIB) and Palau De Congressos De Catalunya

In recent years new indoor leisure facilities have been developed in the coastal towns. A good example is the Sun Centre in Rhyl, which boasts "rides and slides and pools and fun for every member of the family". The Nova Centre in Prestatyn also offers swimming and a range of other entertainment.
