the very center of Barcelona is Plaça de Catalunya.
Most posters prefer staying in Eixample or El Born area.
Ramblas is o.k. with some people -I just find
the street very crowded .
I have not spend time in the other 2 areas but they are close to Passeige deColon - a very nice street and Ample
(depending of the location) could be close to hip El Born
Sagrad Familia is a long way from there.
There is this google map with the INCORRECT location for SF:

that might be confusing you.
Do you have a specific hotel in mind?

I agree that Las Ramblas is crowded and noisy. Hotels off Passaig Gracia give you great places to eat and drink and beautiful walks to admire the architecture of the area.
