Kosher hotels in Barcelona - best hotels for kosher and Shabbat observant in Barcelona, close to kosher restaurants and Chabad house
Those looking for a kosher hotel in Barcelona will find suitable solutions in the center of Barcelona. In the city center there are two kosher restaurants and also a small Chabad store in the Gothic quarter.
Barcelona has countless accommodation options, but there is no kosher hotel in Barcelona.
Although there are no kosher hotels in Barcelona, there are quite a few hotels suitable for kosher observers: near a synagogue and kosher restaurants, within walking distance of a Chabad house, and even suitable for Shabbat observers.
Barcelona and the Jews have a rich history of hundreds of years, in which the Jews of the city suffered persecution and hardships. Today, the Jewish community in Barcelona numbers about 5000 Jews, and this is the largest Jewish community in Spain.
In addition, there is also an active Chabad house in Barcelona that provides religious services for the benefit of travelers.
Both the Barcelona Chabad house and the Jewish community are not right in the city center, but a half hour/45 minute walk from the center of Barcelona. During the week, it is recommended to choose a hotel in a central location, close to the Rambla and the Gothic Quarter.
If you plan to stay in the city on Shabbat, you should book a hotel close to the Chabad house or the Jewish community.
