Is anyone familiar with either of these hotels in Barcelona? I have searched previous posts and there is nothing. I guess I am leaning towards the Astoria (rate is better), but I am concerned about its location and whether it is walking distance to the places I will want to go when there (this is my first trip to Barcelona so the usual touristy sites are planned!)_ It looks like it is just west of the intersection of Sur Diaganol and Ramblas. Please advise!! Thanks, MC smile

I meant, just west of Sur Diag. and Pg. de Gracia intersection! :p

Mcpespo: From this location in Barcelona you can see many Gaudi sights with a short walk to the Casa Mia. This is one of his best known buildings. The Eixample Barrio is beautiful & upscale but not necessarily over expensive. The Diagonal Metro stop is right on your corner & the Ramblas is not too far by foot.There is a tour ticket available at his sights which will gain you entrance for all of his magnificent buildings(edificios) at about half/price. I like your choice and I will stay nearby in Nov. for a few nights with my girlfriend. Last year we stayed in the Barrio gothic but this time it's Eixample. Enjoy. Ski
