Barcelona is one of the most cosmopolitan cities in Europe and where numerous freelancers and entrepreneurs meet with the desire to take their ideas forward. To do this, finding an inspiring workplace that helps you grow is one of the basic steps towards success.
In this regards, coworking is undoubtedly, the best solution. At www.worktel.com you will find more than 100 coworking centres in Barcelona, and today we want to talk about which we consider to be the 10 best you will find in Condal City
On what have we based this list? In Worktel we have selected the following criteria to determine our selection:
- The community that is created in the coworking: We believe that the community is the soul of a coworking. A good coworking is not just a place to work, it must be a place of relations, a place where you can do networking. That’s why we’ve looked at those spaces that take care of this aspect, empowering it, organizing events, etc…
- The characteristics of the spaces and services they offer: The size of the coworking, the variety of spaces (flexible places, permanent, private, kitchen office …), variety of services (printing, lockers, showers, pet access, bike parking, etc. …)
- Design: A good design of the space is essential for a coworking to be a pleasant environment to work and be productive. Not only should it have comfortable and suitable furniture for work, but it should also have spaces where we can relax for a few minutes, have a cup of coffee…and why not?… play a game of table football!!
- Location: We all know that location plays a key role in any business and the location of our workspace is equally important. The fact that it has multiple accessible services (restaurants, shopping, health, etc…), that it is close to communication networks (metro, buses, etc…) or close to potential clients and/or partners is something we should take into account.
Let’s have a look at our selection of the 10 best coworkings in Barcelona.
With coworkings distributed all over the world, Wework has one space in Barcelona and will soon open a second space in Ciutat de Granada Street.
Both the coworking that already has its doors open (Glories), and the one that will open soon, are characterized by being able to have access to them any day of the week and 24 hours a day, high connection wifi, cleaning service, mail and package as well as computer support, office supplies and a space where you can taste artisan beer and micro roasted coffee, among other services.

If you need larger spaces, just contact them.

Aticco was born from the hand of three friends, who, after their experience in other coworkings, decided to create one of their own with their philosophy. Two years ago they opened their first store in Aticco. In one year they had already tripled the original square metres, and now have three strategic locations in Barcelona: Aticco Urquinaona, in the city centre, Aticco MED, in front of the beach in Poblenou and Aticco Hospitalet. In a few months they will open their fourth centre, Aticco Verdaguer, located between the districts of Gracia and l’Eixample. All its workspaces are spacious and bright. They have open coworking areas, private offices, meeting rooms, conference rooms… But undoubtedly the best are their common areas that simplify the meeting of the community as spaces for rest, cafes, spaces for exercise or its incredible terraces from which you can enjoy events and moments of entertainment with the best views of the city. One of the most differentiating aspects is the closeness to the community. They bet on having a large team that is responsible for connecting coworkers and making them feel at home. They also offer services to facilitate any management that the user has to do, such as tax advice, organization of events or human resources, offering different plans that adapt to the needs of the user, whatever its structure: from freelances to large companies. And for startups that are in full development, they have a Growth Plan that allows them maximum flexibility with the conditions and with the space prevision that they are going to need.
