I'm still unsure where to stay for our 4 night visit in May and would like some advice please before I finally book/confirm hotels.
I'm not too bothered about going out late at night and there are mostly favourable reviews of the Gran Torre de Catalunya Hotel for its location. I realise it's outside both red and green zones on Enric M's excellent map but does it really make that much difference?
For like for like facilities it also seems to offer better value than hotels closer in and is of course handy to get to the airport. Is it also better for late night noise than staying in El Born for example?
Presumably it's only about 15/20 minutes into Catalunya/Sagrada Familia on the Metro whereas could it take you that length of time to walk from some of the hotels in the Eixample or El Born?
Or have I got it all wrong and I would be spending too much time on the Metro/FGC?
