Hi Bill, you may want to send a PM to Parrot Mom, she reccomends The Continental on the top of La Rambla, around the corner from the Gaudi Church and two blocks from the Market. I don't know what Star Rating they have, but personal experience can be far better than the Start System.

She also has contact details for a trustworthy driver who picks up at the airport, which may be of use to you.

Hope this helps,

Alan & Katrina

Bill,

I stayed at the Eurostars Grand Marina. It is right at the end of Las Ramblas and overlooks the harbor and port.

I obtained this on Priceline: I bid $90 for a five star hotel and got this on the first try.

I suggest using Priceline and only bidding on 4 and 5 star hotels in the Las Ramblas area. I believe you'll be happy with the results.

You can check out www.biddingfortravel.com for current successful bids and bidding strategies.

Take care,
Mike
