The Tourist Tax was created by the Government of Catalonia on the 1st of November 2012. The tax is transferred to the Generalitat de Catalunya; it is not included in the final price of the reservation and guests must pay it to the apartment owner or elected representative upon check-in.
The Barcelona city tourist tax starts at €4.40 (VAT included) per person per night, for a maximum of 7 nights. For accommodation located in the rest of Catalonia, the rate starts at €1.10 (VAT included). This amount is not included in the price. Those under the age of 17 are exempt. More information.
