Barrio Gòtico (Barri Gòtic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this picturesque neighbourhood is the very heart of Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas brought to life by the many small bars and local musicians lasting late into the night. Fashionistas will be drawn to Portal de L’Angel, which is lined with well-known brand names and smaller boutique stands.

We just spent almost a week here and the location can’t be beat right across from the cathedral. It’s in a beautifully updated and elegant building. We had a cathedral view king and it was quite spacious. Built in cabinets for clothing were great for a long stay. Breakfast was

Perfect location to restaurants, shopping, sightseeing, public transit. Stayed in the suite which had amazing views of the cathedral and plenty of space. Did not eat in the restaurant or use the spa but everything else about the hotel was great. Staff was so kind in welcoming us

The Superior Double with Cathedral View and Terrace at the Colon
The Barcelona airport is well outside of the city. The taxi cost about 30 Euro's. There is a train to downtown, but I wouldn't shlepp suitcases on it. I met someone who had one of their bags stolen on the train.

Others have answered the hotel questions. The Magic Fountain is a short Uber away. I suggest walking to the Arenas De Barcelona after for dinner. It is a 100 year old bull fighting arena converted into a modern shopping destination. There are a number of great restaurant choices up on top with amazing views. The area will be crowded so I suggest reservations. We ate at La Botiga and enjoyed it very much

Quite honestly, I don't remember, I have a universal travel plug but I don't recall which side I used. Email the hotel, they are very responsive and will answer your question. BTW, it is a great place to stay in Barcelona!
