Barcelona offers thousands of accommodation possibilities, therefore we are not recommending any specific hotel or apartment service. We suggest participants to book their accommodation as early as possible through the traditional portals like Booking,, Airbnb or alike (did you know Fairbnb?).

We do have a list of hotels that have an agreement with EADA and offer a discount on the price of any given date. However, rooms are not reserved for IPSERA participants, therefore availability is not granted. You can find this partial list of hotels at this link.

Please get in touch with us if you need any help or specific advice.
