Tag Archives: accommodation


As we all know, planning a journey requires time, energy and a lot of patience. This is especially true when looking for accommodation.  We are also aware of the difficulty in finding affordable accommodation when booking last minute.
Here at Semiofest, we want you to feel as comfortable as possible, so we have that part covered. Let’s just say we decided to simplify this tedious process as much as possible, by offering you a range of websites that can help you to find the location that best suits your needs.

Keep in mind that Barcelona is a small city, so any accommodation close to the city centre (Plaça Catalunya / Plaza Cataluña / Catalonia square) will do.


As mentioned before, we have a special agreement with Cocoon Barcelona for those who would like to rent an apartment. They offer a 10% discount for Semiofest attendees. To book an apartment, you have to: http://www.cocoonbarcelona.com/; on the search box on your upper left, type “Palau Musica”; you will see many options in the area. Choose the one you are interested in, and when making the reservation, type “Semiofest” in the “I have a discount code” box.

If you have any queries, you can contact them at info@cocoonbarcelona.com.
