Grrrrreat mid-range choice
If you’re looking for an upmarket and central three-star hotel in Barcelona then Hotel Jazz should be music to your ears. Run by the same team who manage the four-star 1898 Hotel on La Rambla, Jazz has plenty of class with 108 stylishly decorated rooms fitted out with all the mod cons you need for a comfortable stay, whilst a rooftop bar, sun loungers and swimming pool add some wow factor.
The location in particular is hard to beat. Seconds away from the central Plaza Catalunya (which is where the Barcelona airport bus starts and stops incidentally), you will barely need to use the metro or taxis to explore everything from the Gothic District to the architecture of Gaudi. A perfect mid-range choice.
