Living in Barcelona
ITA Barcelona is located in the Eixample district, with the metro stop Sagrada Familia, conveniently located nearby, as well as a bus service in the area. The area, like most of Barcelona, is both commercial and residential. There are a number of apartment buildings, shops, bars and restaurants that are conveniently located close to the school.
Barcelona, located in the Catalunya region on the east coast of Spain, is a vibrant, cosmopolitan city that has something for everyone. It has great weather, four beautiful sandy beaches, world-renowned museums, interesting architecture, including Gaudi’s distinctive buildings and an endless variety of bars and restaurants to suit all tastes. It is close by car or rail from a number of other cities, including Madrid, which is only six hours away by car and Valencia, which is only four hours away.
Barcelona is an energetic and exciting city that we are sure you will enjoy. We know that our students have individual tastes and preferences when it comes to accommodations. With this in mind, we offer clean, affordable and fully serviced facilities in a number of locations throughout the city. We promise that we will do our best to accommodate your housing preferences indicated on the application form. As well, we regularly monitor the standard of the accommodation provided and encourage your feedback at the end of the course.
The cost of staying in our “standard” accommodation for the duration of the one month course is €450 – €500. You will have your own room in a clean, attractive, comfortable apartment, shared with two or three other students, either completing a TEFL course or studying other educational courses. Most of these apartments are in the “Eixample” area, the city’s main shopping and business district and near to the centre. There are plenty of reasonably priced places for food and this is a good place to be at night, as many of the city’s trendy bars and restaurants are located here. The area is well served by both metro and bus services. Should you wish for more luxurious up-town accommodation, with a quieter and more sophisticated ambience, this can be arranged, albeit at extra cost.
