As a popular destination for both business and leisure travelers, Barcelona can barely keep pace with the demand for hotel rooms, so be sure you book as far in advance as you can.
The best hotel locations for sightseers are in the Barri Gotic, Raval or Eixample, which are all within walking distance of many popular attractions. Barri Gotic and Raval properties tend to be a little less expensive, but some can be noisy, especially those along La Rambla. In Eixample, there are many good midpriced hotels. In addition, some budget and midrange hotels have opened in districts a little farther from the center, such as near Park Guell. These are quieter than those in the city center, the air is fresher and a metro ride will get you into the thick of things in rather short order.
