Edit to say. blackpool belle you posted while I was typing. Do let us know what you think of it
Yes Carol, I did just say in my post it is a B & B not a hotel. I am definitely going to write a review about it when I get back from the cruise. I didn't realise your list was for hotels only.

There are not many hotels in the immediate area of Sagrada Familia. They are mainly apartments (I do not know much about the apartments).

Ayre Hotel Rosellon is quite near but I do not think they do triple rooms. You could ask them if they would put an extra bed in a double room. If not you would need 2 rooms and that would cost a lot more.

Why do you want to be in walking distance of SF? As I said before, I would stay somewhere where you can easily travel to SF when you want to visit there.

Sagrada Familia is not very near the other places in Barcelona that you would want to see but it is quite easy to get to from other parts of central Barcelona.

It has good recommendations on TAdv for location, price, etc. We've been to Barcelona a couple of times but there are still things we haven't seen; e.g., Park Guell. Also wonder if we should take the train to Sitges? It's an excursion on most of the cruise ships and sounds like a quaint beach town to visit altho we really aren't interested in swimming. Just something different for one day. Any recommendations, Sitges or anywhere else? Appreciate your advice.

Hi Carol
Can you help us chose one between these hotels..
Hesperia Ramblas
Hotel Denit
Arc Las Ramblas
or Barcelona Universal
I am going round and round trying to decide for one night post cruise.
We want clean, close to Las Ramblas as we want to be able to walk everywhere and reasonable price(who doesnt?)
Thanks so much for your help

I don't really want to get into recommending individual hotels unless I have personally stayed there. I have not stayed at any of these.

My intention is to provide all the facts I can about all the hotels and allow people to choose for themselves or let others who have stayed there comment.

Go to my hotel list, click on the hotel name and this will take you to the hotel's website. Also have a look on Trip Advisor and see what others have to say. Then you can choose which suits you best as far as price and location.

The only thing I would say here is that the Barcelona Universal usually has a minimum of 2 nights stay. You might want to check this for your actual dates.

Where I am aware of this I have put it in my hotel list. If anyone is aware of any other hotels with a minimum stay please let me know.

Some hotels have minimum stays at certain times of the year. Especially at fiesta and other busy times.

The only way to be sure if a hotel allows a one or two night stay when you want to go there is to try booking it.

I understand totally. I have done all the things you suggest that is why before I booked I wanted a second opinion. But no problem. I thought you might have had some personal experience.

BTW Barcelona Universal does allow a one night stay-at least for the time we will be there- but you do not get an extra 15% off if you only stay one night.

This list is very much appreciated. I can see the time and trouble that you have gone to.

We are staying here a few days pre cruise next May.
I am going to go through your list and compare hotels.

Once again, thank you.

We stayed at Hispanos Siete Suiza, an apartment hotel an easy walk from Sagrada Familia. We loved the area - lots of take-aways, a market, a pedestiran area and between two subway stops that made it easy to get around.

Thank you for this information

I will add this to the hotel list. Although I normally only included 'rated' hotels and aparthotels I think I will make an exception with this as there are so few places to stay near Sagrada Familia.

I found them from many recommendations on this ports of call board and we've stayed there twice now. There are so few hotels in Barcelona that can hold a family, so this was great for us - 2 bedroom apartment in a hotel for less than the cost of two hotel rooms, with the added benefit of a kitchen, living room and washer/dryer. Location is great for a family with kids as there is a small park across from Sagrada Familia.

Thank you for the wonderful list!

Best,
Mia
