Hotwire zones in Barcelona & London

Jump to last reply

I'm looking at using Hotwire for a possible upcoming trip which will include both London and Barcelona.

I've been to London several times and spent a semester there in 1999, but have never used Hotwire or Priceline there. I lived in Bloomsbury during my semester abroad and tend to gravitate there. I haven't been back since 2009, though, so while my general geography knowledge is good, it's not terribly recent. The Bloomsbury zone goes a bit north of Kings Cross/St Pancras/Euston Road. I know this area is safe, and obviously it's good from a transport perspective, but is there much around the Euston Road area in terms of restaurants, etc? I'm thinking more for breakfast than anything else. The Westminster zone includes a bit of Lambeth across the river - on the off chance we'd end up with a hotel there, would that be a decent area to stay in?

Neither of us have ever been to Barcelona, so I'm flying a bit blind there. The Old Town/El Born/Gotic area is bordered by La Rambla, Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes, Carrer de Sardenya, and Carrer de la Merce, roughly, with Placa de Catalunya roughly in the upper left corner. I'm assuming this would be a good one to stay in? Would others be just as good?

If it works, here's a link to a search for Barcelona, just for the zone map:

Lastly - "we" are two women in our 30s and would much prefer a twin room to a double bed. Have any of you had success/lack of success emailing a hotel after winning a bid to request a twin room (or anything similar)? I've done this with no problem in the States, but since rooms with two double beds are so common here I have a feeling it's easier than in Europe.

Thanks in advance for the assistance!
