We are headed to Spain in June. We will spend the first two nights in Barcelona, then 4 nights in Mallorca, and then 2 more in Barcelona, again. We have our hotel in Mallorca, but we are looking for suggestions in Barcelona.
We are a couple in our late 30s/early 40s, celebrating our 10 year anniversary (without our kids!). We were in Barcelona for our honeymoon and have always wanted to come back.
We were thinking about spending our last two nights at Hotel Arts (although we are open to other suggestions). We thought we might try something different for the first two nights. Maybe something in the Eixample or other urban environment. We also definitely want something with character (either old or new) and with an outdoor pool. We'd love a good location that is near public transportation. We don't need luxury, but don't want a flea bag hotel either. We'd like to spend under 300 euros per night.
I'd love to hear your suggestions. Thanks!
