1. Re: which hotel

Hola John,

If you are trying to stay under $500 (guess you mean USD) and you've been quoted a price of $421 for the Hotel Continental, you've already achieved what you wanted.

There's no comparison between these 2 hotels. One is on Barcelona's most touristy street, La Rambla, and highly reviewed. The other is in the bowels of Barri Gotic with very basic rooms.

If you want hotel suggestions, please give your travel dates. It's difficult to do a useful search without them.

Have a look at Hostal Barcelona Centro. It's in l'Eixample on carrer de Pau Claris. On www.booking.com , rooms run from $375-$413 for your first date. This is a very good location near Passeig de Gracia.

A Hostal is a small, often family-run hotel with basic amenities. Some rooms have private bathrooms, others share.

If you like it, try to get it for the post-cruise stay too. If you need more suggestions, feel free to ask.
