Either Heathrow or Gatwick would do.Tube from H, train from G.
Not sure I understand the question..if you are using Easyjet how can you choose your airport?
with such a short stay why not stay central instead of commuting in every day.
cheap hotels..Priceline

Thanks Michel Easy Jet does fly from Barcelona to Gatwick. I will then take train to center of London and get a hotel there. I have NEVER used priceline but will give ti a try . I usually use Orbitz. Thanks so much for your help. Any other info would be greatly appreciated.

Try an apartment if you want to keep your costs down? You can then eat in, save on breakfasts etc. There are heaps around the Canary Wharf area and if you get a studio it is much nicer than a hotel room I think. Depends on what you want. Just use the Gatwick Express into Victoria. There is also a great b'n'b near there that is about UKL100 per night including an awesome breakfast, and it is very, very popular and local to everything, plus near the station so close to the tube. http://www.bb-belgravia.com/

Easyjet flys to Luton which is around 30mins by train from central London - probably quicker than Gatwick if you ignore the Express option(I think there is also and Easybus). Reasonable, comfortable cheap hotel chains include Travelodge and Premier Inns but do check locations and book as far in advance as possible for cheaper rates,

EasyJet flies from Barcelona to both Luton and Gatwick, with more than twice as many flights on the Gatwick route. www.easyjet.com

If the fares are similar, Gatwick is better than Luton
