Summer is one of the best seasons of the year because of the amazing weather, all the tourist attractions available and, most of all, because the entire family can create unique and long-lasting memories in incredible destinations.
We recommend spending an unforgettable summer in Europe, staying in some of the world’s top destinations; you can reserve the City Hotels from our website and stay at the best Catalonia hotels available.
We’ll start by recommending one of the most popular destinations in all of Spain: San Sebastián, also called Donostia (its name in Basque), one of the country’s most charming cities known mainly for its beautiful coast on the Cantabrian Sea, its delicious food, and its iconic landmark buildings. Plus, the advantage of the city is that its tourist attractions are very close to each other.
San Sebastián is also a fascinating city that has something for everyone. Its most famous events include the spectacular Tamborrada, the Film Festival, the Jazz Festival called “Jazzaldia,” Semana Grande (a week-long celebration of Basque culture and heritage), races at the racetrack, and a range of sporting events including the Behobia-San Sebastian race.
Come visit this wonderful Spanish city and stay at the new Catalonia Donosti, a hotel strategically located on San Bartolomé hill in the heart of the city. From a family vacation to a couples’ getaway, it is the perfect choice for any type of trip.
Without a doubt, one of the most avant-garde and modern cities in Spain in recent years is Bilbao; this city boasts fantastic architectural works of art, crowned by its famous Guggenheim Museum.
All visitors are struck by the city’s impressive buildings, designs by prestigious architects that make Bilbao an international benchmark of modernity. Interestingly, what gives it its unique character is its combination of avant-garde with the traditional touch of its old quarter. This historic district is lined with charming streets and bars that serve up delicious pintxos, proving that food is enjoyed and experienced with passion in Bilbao.
In this unique Spanish city, we invite you to stay at the new Catalonia Gran Via Bilbao, a hotel strategically located downtown and well-connected to city’s main tourist attractions.
You can also visit Zaragoza, one of the most beautiful cities in all of Spain and the capital of the Aragon region, located on the banks of the Ebro River, midway between Madrid and Barcelona.
Zaragoza boasts a superb calendar of things to do and see year-round. The city is home to a vibrant cultural scene thanks to its many stunning venues and the artistic trends you can find around every corner and which are sure to impress. Another reason to discover this friendly city is that its streets have such a rich, impressive, and amazing heritage that touring the city to see the biggest tourist attractions requires time and a good plan.
You can stay at the maravilloso Catalonia El Pilar, housed in an early 20th-century building with a modernist style you’re sure to love. Not only that, but it’s located just a few yards from the Basilica of Our Lady of the Pillar, right in the heart of the city.
Another can’t-miss destination in Spain is Granada, home to a spectacular Arab legacy and a cultural history that encompasses wonders like the Alhambra, the Generalife and the Nasrid Palaces.
The last city to be reconquered by the Catholic Monarchs in 1492, Granada has an unmistakable Moorish flavor. Its cuisine, craftsmanship and urban planning are shaped by its glorious historical past; fountains, viewpoints and cármenes (houses surrounded by characteristic gardens of this city) help to create unforgettable spots that dot the city. Unsurprisingly, one of its old neighborhoods, “El Albaicín,” is a World Heritage Site.
Stay at the four-star Catalonia Granada Hotel and enjoy its privileged location, just five minutes from the historical center and the Granada Cathedral, next to the AVE high-speed train station.
We also invite you to visit another iconic European country, Portugal. Porto is the second most important city in Portugal after Lisbon. It has its own style as well as a full range of activities and traditions.
A destination worth visiting and exploring at your leisure to discover its charming streets. And since Porto is a small city, you can cover most of its historic downtown area in a matter of days. There are many attractive things about this incredible Portuguese city for a getaway or a few days of well-deserved rest. It is the perfect place where wine and music invite you to completely relax and unwind.
Discover this fascinating city and stay at the new Catalonia Porto, a charming hotel in the heart of the city with all the amenities.
If you’re feeling more adventurous, you can fly to the Netherlands to visit the famous city of Amsterdam, today the country’s major intellectual hub.
You can see historical buildings and spectacular museums in this beautiful city, stroll down its canal-lined streets and shop in the old town, all with Amsterdam’s bubbling energy in the background.
In this unique Dutch city, we invite you to stay at Catalonia Vondel Amsterdam, a hotel strategically located in the heart of Amsterdam with fantastic facilities.
Last but not least, we recommend Germany’s fabulous capital, Berlin. The city is an interesting and very important historical setting for understanding the history of Europe and the world.
Most of its tourist attractions are located downtown in areas like Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf, Prenzlauer Berg, Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg and Mitte. Berlin always has events for art, culture or music lovers on tap, but summer is the perfect season for enjoying all the different activities this amazing city has to offer.
Which makes the Catalonia Berlin Mitte hotel, with a privileged location and unique amenities that will make you feel right at home, the perfect place to stay.
