The biggest headache in choosing a stag destination can be pleasing all the people on the trip and pandering to their needs. But no matter how diverse your group of mates, there is no one that Barcelona doesn’t have covered. So take your pals there and expect to earn their props.
For this is a city known to de–cynic the cynic; get the tight–wad spending; the clean–living partying; and the shy having random adventures with strangers all around the city.
And let’s not to forget those who are already up for it – who can expect a truly epic blow out right across the board.

The best of Barcelona

"TOP customer service!!!"

I approached packed with a work project, searching for a Ski trip for 50 people. Right from the beginning the customer service was super, within a couple of days I had 2 trips that fitted the criteria perfectly. Due to the nature of my job I was unable to progress quickly and was back & forth with questions and requests, but nevertheless Ed Mellor continued to be professional, extremely helpful and patient. There was never a delay is receiving responses to my many emails.

"Simple, fast and super helpful"

I saw an advert on Instagram and thought it’d be worth a shout as I was having a hard time booking a ski trip for myself and 6 mates. From start to finish it was easy messaging through WhatsApp and they found brilliant deals for us. Would happily recommend to anyone thinking of using them. Ed was fantastic and super fast to reply and keep my up to date

Would absolutely recommend. It made booking a group holiday so much easier and completely removes the hassle. will definitely be using again.

Trusted Customer

I've booked with My Swft for the last 3 years, 4 holidays in total. This year was even better. The new online booking is really simple to be able to share with the group and get people to choose a location. Then everyone managing their own booking makes it even easier for the group leader!

Adam Burrage

Stag accommodation in Barcelona

Barcelona has smart, stylish, hi-tech hotels which don’t charge the silly money - with double rooms starting at around £110 per night.

There is also all manner of apartments and other types of accommodation. The city is known for options that are cool or quirky; modern or period; luxurious or cheap. And you can get set up inside a larger space if you want to keep the stag group together under one roof.

You’ll also find some seriously sexy, high-end hotels - with the clientele to match. But even if you can’t afford to stay there, you can at least hit up their bars. And if the single blokes amongst you have game, these are the places to bring it to the beautiful people around you.

Need some pointers? Whether you’re working with a shoestring budget or money is no object, check out the following ace accommodation options for a Barcelona stag do. We can arrange others, but here’s a slice.

Why thousands of customers love packed

Why packed

The head‐spinning variety of options competing for your limited time in Barcelona can make things more than a little daunting for the organiser. Luckily, packed has diligently and selflessly put in the heavy‐lifting for you, exhaustively exploring the high and the low‐life the city has to offer, like a hedonist branch of the SAS, to make sure your itinerary will next‐level the expectations of even the most travel‐hardened member of your party.

You just have to share with us your travel, play and accommodation expectations and our team will do all the work, using our experience, connections and expertise to sort out all aspects of your trip ‐ no matter how diverse and complicated the arrangements. So that means we’ll co‐ordinate your flights ‐ even if you’ve got seven mates flying out of seven different airports. We’ll bag you the hottest places to sleep, eat, dance and drink. And we’ll make things stealth and original if you don’t want to follow in the footsteps of stag weekends past.

We also relieve the designated trip‐planner of the logistical ball‐ache of endlessly sending out bills to the travel group. Because once you give us the nod, we do that for you, saving you the time, tedium and some of the resentment!

Whilst you’re away on your trip, we also provide a service which is a bit like a remote version of the Wolf from Pulp Fiction, mixing concierge and consiglieri so you can check in with us round the clock should you need us to help smooth out any issues that may arise.
