Barcelona neighborhoods and hotels

Jump to last reply

Hi all. We're planning to go to Barcelona next year, and I'm looking at hotels, etc. I'm trying to get a handle on the flavor of the different neighborhoods, to decide on a base. We like architecture, gardens, walking, museums, etc. Not into throbbing nightlife; we tend to eat at a nice upscale restaurant, walk around, and end up reading in our hotel room. It's important to me to have a hotel with light and big windows, and preferably some kind of view (a square, a church, a courtyard - just not looking at another building 20 feet away).

Some of the hotels I've bookmarked are the Alma (near Park Guell) the Neri (Barrio Gotic), the Anba suites (near Plaza Catalunya), the Hotel DO (Placa Reial). I figure the rate will be 225 - 275 E per night; some have booking deals if I do it ahead.

It would really be helpful to understand the neighborhoods more to make a better decision. I have read in several places (though the articles might be old, and things have changed) that the Raval can be a bit iffy at night.

Can you compare them to Paris neighborhoods? What's more like St Germain, the Marais, etc. As always, thank you for any information you can give.
