We will be arriving 3 days early to do some sightseeing around Barcelona. Where should we stay in terms of location - La Rambla, Barri Gotic or Gracia? I am not familiar with the different districts within Barcelona so any help would be greatly appreciated!
There are some advantages to staying close to the Gotic quarter, but prices will be higher.
We know people on the same cruise that like the Continental just north of the Playa Catalyna for about 100Euros per night. We stayed in the Example section near the Diagonal Metro that was about a mile north of Playa Catalyna for 68Euros per night at a good three star hotel with a bar, restaurant, marble everywhere (Hotel Astoria, check venere website).
