Places to stay in heart of Barcelona?

Three of my friends and I are looking for an affordable place to stay in Barcelona July 19-22, was wondering if anyone had any recommendations. I have been having some trouble finding places that have rooms that accomodate 4 people....we are open to hostels, apartments (if they will rent for such a short period of time), and hotels. Thanks a lot!

I was a lot of times in Barcelona. It´s great city that offers all.

The last two times I stayed with Cocoon Barcelona an agency that rents apartments for short-term. Their variety of apartments is fabulous...they offer from budget to luxury. Their website is www.cocoonbarcelona.com

We had a rustic apartment in Barrio Gotico with a terrace, a beautiful one.

So this is my recommendation for Barcelona accomodation.

We stayed at an www.apartmentsramblas.com apartment. (sagradafamilia2). It was a bit noisy but to be honest I think that everywhere in Barcelona would be. It would be smallish for 4 people but if you are only sleeping there it would be fine. We spent the full day out and only went there to sleep. There seem to be apartments with opens of double beds / single beds / sofa beds. Hope that helps.

have you checked ENJOY BARCELONA? got it from gomio.com.it's in plaza real, not far from plaza de catalunya, great location. I stayed there once for only 2 nigts. It was 4 of us in an apartment for two persons(2 beds), but it was too big for two. it was more like rooftop apartment (w/ patio). All furnished (tv,fridge,sofa,etc.). nice and clean. sounds pricy.. I forgot about the price, but it was pretty cheap, for sure.

The cons: old building, no elevator(it was 4-6story high), the stairway was a bit creepy :) and... I didn't find fire escape (just realized afterwards).

However, I really recommend this place. Hope they still have one available.

Hi, We stayed at the ROYAL RAMBLAS hotel, at the Ramblas near transportation and the city center with rambas view!

Enjoy your stay

We rented an apartment for four nights through lovingbarcelona.com, they had lots of places, all different sizes, in different areas of the city, and the prices seemed reasonable (cheaper in Raval but advice seems to be to avoid that area)

By this time you sould already have made your choice. But just in case, another tip is to stay at an apartment by the beach, Barceloneta. It's nice and there is always transportation to the city center. There are good seafood restaurants, the Imax (3D cinema), Maremagnum (shopping center) and so on.
