More Hotels For Barcelona? In Uncategorized, March 1st, 2013 Tagged , Barcelona, Business, Tourism More Hotels For Barcelona? Similar to the article The Hotel Explosion in Barcelona, today’s article in El Periódico explains the pro and contras of giving out more hotel licences in the city, specifically Ciutat Vella (the old town). This is good for business and makes sure old buildings get restored… but what about the locals and the environment? With Barcelona already being spoilt by tourism, will the city council be able to approve a plan that is good for tourism, the locals and the environment? We hope so!
