My wife, 22 year old son and I will be visiting Barcelona in mid August 2013 for 2-3 days. Will it be difficult to get a hotel room for the 3 of us? Any recommendations? Also, we plan to rent a car from Barcelona and drive to Nice. Should we get the car from the airport, since we will be flying back to Malaga from Barcelona upon our return from Nice.
Thanks for you help.
You can find an appartment that will fit you all. Unfortunately I do not remember the name of the ones that we used to rent, it was an apart-hotel just in the center of Barcelona, very nice. We found it via booking.
And as for the car, yes, it will be wise to do it in the airport. It is easy to there by public transport (and not very expencive), and you'll avoid traffic jams and other problems.
If you look at the site Booking.com, you will find plenty of Hotels with accommodation for 3 adults.
My husband and I stayed at the Silver ApartHotel and were quite happy with it. You can read my review by copy and pasting this link

In the photo, it looks like we had two double beds, but there are more types of rooms to choose from.
Another vt'er also stayed here and wrote a good review on the Hotel.
As has already been suggested, you could try going for an apartment. It is often cheaper and means you have more space for all 3 of you and your son could have his own room while still being all in the same place. This website has some apartments in Barcelona:
Hope that helps.
Thanks so much for the information. I will definitely check it out.
