Subject: Re: Barcelona Hotel
Hello John,

I've always liked the Hotel Colón in the Barrio Gótico. It's not the most luxurious hotel in town, but the location is perfect, directly facing the main Cathedral.

I've also stayed at Le Meridien, which is just off Las Ramblas, but closer to the Plaza de Catalunya (and the newer section of town.) It is more luxurious, but without quite as much personal charm as the Colón. However, it's location is also hard to beat.
