Some Barcelona travellers opinions about where to stay in Barcelona:
"You need to stay within walking distance of Placa Catalunya -- the city's transportation hub. And it's literally the center of the city. The Placa itself is dead center between the Old City and the New. It itself is a great walk to the water,to the Barri Gotic, to the Eixample and to Born, el Raval and Paseo de Gracia. Enjoy your stay in Barcelona and Spain"
"It's Europe. You're going to be near public transportation wherever you are. Notice that some people with kids who replied like to be near the center of things, while others were happy away from the crowds. You have to decide for you. Wherever you stay, you'll find things to love about the neighborhood you're in, and reasons to want to stay in another area on another trip."
"We stayed in the Eixample neighborhood because we wanted to be near all the great Gaudi architecture, but it was an easy walk or a couple of metro stops to the Barri Gotic and other old city neighborhoods - as well as to Gracia, a residential area with lots of small inexpensive restaurants. We took the metro for more distant excursions like Parc Guell. The metro is efficient and quite easy to use, but the trains stop running around midnight."
"You could stay anywhere in the city centre that is connected via a metro point. The metro serves most of the areas in Barcelona with tourist attractions. If however you want to be right in the middle of where all the action is then you would need to stay around La Rambla or Barri Gotic (Gothic Quarter). This area also has some of the best transport connections in terms of bus turistic, metro and train via Placa Catalunya station, which is at the top of La Rambla."

It's about a 10 minute walk from Passeig De Gracia station which has trains running to and from the airport. Wonderful place to be near everything."
Hotel Regina Barcelona: "The hotel is very conveniently located off the Plaza de Cataluna, walking distance from the shuttle bus from the airport and to all main shops and great restaurants. Hotel Regina is the hotel where to stay while in Barcelona."
Olivia Plaza: "Everything is about 1KM radius allowing you to walk anywhere while all the major public transit systems are just outside the door. The Aerobus to/from the airport (5 euro per direction per person) stops right in front of the hotel. Great stay at Olivia Plaza."
Regencia Colon Hotel: "We stayed here two nights pre cruise holiday. The area of the hotel is superb. I always choose the best locations before I choose a hotel."
NH Barcelona Centro: "We stayed here for two days prior to a cruise. Excellent location just round the corner from Las Ramblas but very quiet in the evening so you get a good night's sleep. Metro station nearby and buses to and from the airport are 10-15 minutes walk away. Well situated between the old Gothic quarter and not far to walk to the Gaudi houses in the newer part of town so ideal for sightseeing. We will definitely stay here when we next visit Barcelona."
H10 Racó del Pí: "This hotel has the BEST location, right in the heart of the Gothic distict. It is a safe and convenient area. Each day, we walked out of the hotel and into the heart of the city. We were very close to Barcelona Cathedral and there were nightly shows in the square next to it. We could walk everywhere! The hotel is close to Las Ramblas and El Raval, but no so close that you have to deal with any of the loud crazyness of of those areas. We were also able to walk to the beach, and to metro stations. Ideal location!"
