Stay in El Born, in Barcelona, and getting to the Languedoc, France

Jump to last reply

I'm planning at trip for DH, DD (17yo) and myself in early summer. We will start in Barcelona, which DH and I have visited previously, but not DD. We stayed in Bari Gotic the last time, just off Placa del Pi, which worked great then, as our 12yo DS was with us. Now that we will have an older teen with us, and a subsequent visit to a different region of Spain got us hooked on tapas, I'm thinking El Born is a better neighborhood for us to stay in.

Because we need a triple, though, my hotel choices seem to be limited. In our price range, I've come up with Musik Boutique Hotel, Sant Pere Mes Baix, 62, Borne Apartments, Carrer de la Pescateria, 1, and Ciutat Barcelona Hotel, Calle Princesa, 33, 35. I like the proximity to Mercat Santa Caterina. I'm leaning toward Musik Boutique Hotel, but would welcome input on location, street noise, etc.

Also, after Barcelona, we will head to the Languedoc and then the Dordogne, picking up a rental car on the way. One of the "musts" on the way is the Dali Museum, and I would like to visit Girona again, and possibly spend the night there. We will make final transportation plans closer to then, but because we did this same route before, I know that there's no great way to do it. Last time, we took the high-speed train from Barcelona to Perpignan, picked up a rental car, and drove back into Spain. Spent the afternoon in Girona (lovely), then drove to Figures, where we visited the museum and spent the night. The next day, we headed back into France. This time, I'm trying to come up with something better; I've checked train times and even local buses. But would welcome any suggestions from Fodorites who know the area and options better than I do.
