Somewhere just off the Ramblas, I would say. Then you would be close to museums, restraunts, bus tours, beach area, shops etc.

Hi,

If you want to experience the real Barcelona I would suggest you stay in L'Eixample, to experience local shops, bars, restaurants, etc. This is the large area laid out in a grid pattern that surrounds the older parts of the city. If you want to be in the epicentre of tourist Barna, stay on the Rambla. To still be in the tourist heart but with more style and history, stay in the Gothic Quarter. El Born, next to the Gothic Quarter, is a lovely old area with a leafy square, lovely old church, lots of good bars and restaurants, becoming increasingly touristy, but is handy for the the sites, old port, beach and seafodd restaurants of Barceloneta.
