Where to stay?

Can I have suggestions of which hotel to stay in for 5 night stay in Barcelona? Ideally easy to get to places so close to public transport. And close to the beach? Looking at minimum 3 star - ideally 4 star or above.

Also which places would u suggest visit g whilst in Barcelona? This is a last minute trip and I've never travelled around much before so any tips would be much appreciated!

Downtown Barcelona is the Plaza de Catalunya. A good place to stay is the Eixample, the modern barrio of the city built in the 19th and 20th centuries, with a square grid of streets. This includes modernist buildings like the Sagrada Familia Basilica, Casa Mila and Casa Batllo (built by Gaudi). There are other notable modernist buildings here by other famous modernist architects. The Paseo de Gracia is the most elegant avenue, with upscale stores. Use expedia.com to screen hotels in the area, a very good area to stay in.

I recently stayed at the Hotel Indigo. Review their web site for specifics. I suggest that you take the HOHO tour bus. You can find this tour bus at the Plaza Catalunya. It has three routes. One ticket good for all three. Audio guide. It stops at all the sights. Excellent way to see the city. Happy travels!
