Looked on hotwire.com & they have some good deals...BUT without knowing the hotel name, was not sure if that would be a risk. 4 star Hotels in the South Las Ramblas is being offered for $125/night but was concerned that we could get a hotel in an "undesired" area as I had read there is a red light district in the south area? So without knowing what hotel, I'm not sure the special "reduced" price is worth the risk of ending up somewhere not ideal.
I have done lots of research and still unable to make a decision. Want to be within walking distance of the must see places, but "safe" walking distance.
I would find a good review for a hotel, do some searches only to find out while the hotel itself is a very nice hotel - the complaints were that it was not located on a street that felt safe walking- riff raff, or streetwalkers on the corner down the street, homeless people in the park located down the street etc...so it just makes it all the more confusing as to where exactly is a good choice?
IF anyone has experience staying at hotel in Barcelona and can make a suggestion....it would be REALLY be appreciated.
Thanks in advance for your help!
