Recommendation for Reasonable Boutique Hotel Near Placa Catalyuna?

Jump to last reply

We haven't been to Barcelona in over a decade;last time we stayed as young newlyweds we were at the Avenida Palace and loved the location but didn't love the small, dark rooms. This time we managed to get a great rate at the Fairmont thanks to our President's Club upgrades etc but realized that it is too far out of the city center. Most people on these boards did NOT recommend it. We then thought Hotel Ofelias because a friend had been to Barcelona in February and loved it. A bit of research showed it is four metro stops away. A bit far. We want something newish and bright and airy etc that is off las Ramblas/ near the Placa Catalyuna. I stress a newer boutique hotel only because it will be August when we visit and I want to increase the chances of better than average a/c. I recall from the last trip how hot it got! Any suggestions?

Muchas Gracias,
Lisa
