Sounds fine. There is an important holiday there which raises hotel rates, so watch out for that (I think that may be last week in September, I forget but deliberately scheduled my trip to Barcelona in October for the 2nd or 3rd week due to that).

Don't stay near the beach, it's not convenient.

We'll be going in September.
Any other suggestions for a mid-priced, centrally located hotel?
(Hotel Constanza sound nice - and doesn't cost a fortune!)

Start your own thread and you'll get more attention. And tell everyone what the heck a "mid-priced" hotel is in $ or Euros.

BR-
This is a fairly recent thread with some good information already.
and
a "mid-priced" hotel is whatever the responder thinks it is..the next step would be for me to look it up myself to get prices.

I'd like to find a centrally located hotel, small and charming (rather than big and glitzy) for less than $200 per night.

Banys Orientals could be a good option, in the medieval and lively Born area, close to "everything", 105€/night. http://www.hotelbanysorientals.com/en/

About the area, very important for Catalan identity: http://www.barcelona-tourist-guide.c...s/el-born.html

Many excellent tapas bars and restaurants around here, but Tapeo is a new favourite from a visit a few weeks ago. Terrific place, make reservations, sit along the bar and enjoy! http://www.tapeoborn.cat/

... and Hotel Banys Orientals is only a ten-fifteen minutes walk from the great and fun Barceloneta beach. Also recommend the Barceloneta district, just inland from the beach: http://www.theguardian.com/travel/20...taurants-spain

several hotels we stayed at a not very glitzy but not sure they are " charming":
Granados 83, Murmuri, Granvia de las Cortes....all in Eixample
Don't know the rates these days.

For better value at either the Hotel Arts or the Mandarin Oriental, check out the Virtuoso amenities you can get at the same regular best available rate - http://tinyurl.com/plwr2nk

My family enjoyed our stay at Hotel Colon last summer. It faces the cathedral and is in walking distance to many of the attractions. The hotel is lovely, with a very friendly staff. Ask for a room on the higher floors with a view of the cathedral--gorgeous at night!

Hotel Colon looks very nice. Does it offer a breakfast plan?
