Your group accommodation with Groupcorner
Whether for a business meeting, conference, school trip, family getaway, spiritual retreat or sports competition, there are many reasons to take a trip in a group. Finding accommodation that satisfies the needs and tastes of all, but also meets a predefined budget is not easy to do. Confronted with an overcrowded range of offers, organising your quotes and making sure that the hotel, apartment-hotel or holiday village meets all your criteria, then actually finalising and managing the booking with payment and rooming lists can be an arduous task. Groupcorner has already done most of the work for you and saves you valuable time.
Of the thousands of accommodation choices we have listed in France and Europe, we have selected options to meet every need, whether for a small group at a teambuilding weekend, or a business seminar for hundreds of employees. In the heart of major French cities or European capitals, we have selected hotels to suit all budgets, from luxury hotels to economical options. In the countryside, by the sea or in the mountains, we offer accommodation as varied as campsites, holiday villages or group lodges. We even have unusual and unique places to stay for an original experience. There is something for everyone, every need, and every budget.
Our travel notes
Traveling to Barcelona
Taking a trip to Barcelona with your group allows you to escape the daily routine: even though you travel abroad, you remain close to France- which allows you to avoid many logistics issues. Indeed the Catalan capital city can be reached via the two most comfortable group modes of transport : the plane or the TGV, Train à Grande Vitesse (the French fast-speed railway service).
The Barcelona El Prat Airport is both modern (with Terminal 1 opened in 2009) and international; you can get there from most big French cities. It is also located close to the centre, which can be reached in only 20 minutes by bus or taxi. Thanks to this airport, it is very easy to fly to Barcelona. It will fit all budgets, as it welcomes both traditional and low-cost companies.
Since 2013, you can get to Barcelona with TGV; the trip takes less than 6hrs30 from Paris, 5hrs from Lyon and 4hrs from Marseilles. Even though this can seem long, the railway allows you to avoid going to the airport, which entails going through luggage registration, safety controls and riding to the centre- so it can be a winning choice.
For big groups, riding on a coach can also be a good budget option, especially for people coming from the South of France.
Hotels of all standards for all kinds of groups
If you are looking for a hotel in Barcelona, you are spoiled for choice! What is more, the Catalan capital is quite a cheap destination as compared to other European capitals. Barcelona encompasses several different areas. The historical inner city is a maze of quaint old streets; it is made up of the Gotic, Ribera, Born and Raval districts. As for the Eixample district which consists of an extension from the centre, it boasts many interesting sights such as the Gaudi houses in the posh Passei de Gracia. The left side of Eixample goes as far as the Plaza de Espana and the Montjuic hill, another must-see area displaying many museums. Farther from the centre, the Sagrada Familia cathedral is a bit off-centered; so is the famous Güell park, which crowns the Gracia district. From Barceloneta to Poble Nou, the seaside displays the Olympic Games infrastructure. The historical inner city and Passei de Gracia are the most expensive areas, while Poble Sec, located at the end of Raval, remains quite affordable. Groupcorner helps your group find the right accommodation suiting your needs and your budget.
