May 12-20

I just booked my trip to Barcelona from May 12-20 and am so excited! I look forward to planning another great trip with the help of all the great advice from fellow TA members!

I noticed that many hotels are booked for the latter part of my trip. Is there something going on in Barcelona this week? We have a hotel that we booked (Hotel America) at a refundable rate in case we find somewhere we like better. But, was just curious if the lack of availability at hotels is normal or if something is going on.

That is just before we arrive and I noted that there is some Formula car race during that time span and read reports that hotels can be booked and rates possibly higher. As usual a locally based person can probably be more helpful.

Formula 1 finale race is May 13th...so only first part of your stay would be affected if in fact this is the problem. Also traditionally May is a big expo/convention type month in most large cities. Good luck.
