    Advise - Hotels near Nou Camp

    Hi,

    Looking to come over for the Getafe game at the end of March.

    Can anyone advise of good hotels near the Nou Camp as I'm likely to be coming alone and don't want to have to travel far.

    Also am I best waiting until I am in Barcelona before buying a ticket?

    Thanks

    Two pieces of advice...One, if you've never been to the city, don't think of staying in a hotel near Camp Nou...It's a bit far from the city center and you'd need to make a minimum 20 min trip on the metro etc. anytime you wanted to see anything

    Barcelona is well equipped with public transportation so the smarter thing to do, IMHO, is to choose a hotel closer to the city center...Getting to the stadium is quite easy and everyone else will be doing the same on match day

    Two, ticket prices aren't going to increase between now & then so there's no incentive to 'wait it out'...If you know you're going, buy now...Plus, you can likely choose better where you want to sit...It won't be recommended but if you want, you can also buy tickets from club members outside Camp Nou the days before the match - even the day of...Members pay a pittance to get their season tickets and make a hefty profit by selling their tickets for matches that aren't high on the priority list - Getafe likely to be an example

    Where the water is warm, the drinks are cold... and I don't know the names of the players.

    I stayed in hotel "Abba garden" last year (http://www.abbagardenhotel.com/en/), on walking distance of the Camp Nou (+- 20 min). If your budget allows it, you also could stay in the Princesa Sofia hotel, that's on +- 5 min away by foot from Camp Nou.

    If you don't mind taking a tram (or metro), you could also stay in the following appartment/hotel: Apartementes Descartes (http://www.booking.com/hotel/es/apar...king_confemail). I've stayed there 1 week recently, very satifisfied with it. It's further away from Camp Nou though (+- 1 hour away on foot)

    While I was looking for an appartment/hotel, this was another one that caught my eye: http://www.booking.com/hotel/es/bwh-...-blockdisplay1

    The ratings are very good, so it might be worth checking out.

    I stayed in a few places in Barca, the best one was http://barcelonamar.com/
    You don't need to get a place near the stadium. The matches are in the evening and they are easy to get to.

    Or if you have a lot of money, you could stay in Hotel W (http://www.w-barcelona.com/) too The Barca-players sometimes stay there before big games. I'd love to stay there 1 night, but it's very expensive (cheapest room costs 250 euro per night )

    That hostel looks awesome, but unfortunately they don't offer a private bathroom. Do hostels never offer a private bathroom, or is this an exception? (usually I stay in hotels, don't have too much experience with hostels). Thx!

    Hostel Conde Guell looks good, no private bedroom though

    For food, I suggest you to eat a "menu of the day". Usually only costs +- 10 euro, and is available in lots of restaurants (not sure if it's available in the weekend though)

    I stayed in the Hotel Madanis a couple of weeks ago. The Nou Camp is literally just up the street, the hotel was nice and clean and had alot of restaurants and pubs just outside of it.

    Just checked their website, looks good, and apparently not extremely expensive either (70 euro/night), thx for the tip.
