Highly rated hotel search list (1) – Barcelona (Add link)

To commemorate the completion of flight/accommodation reservations for an independent trip to Spain/Portugal from January to February 2024, this is a list of hotel recommendations I created to help friends and I choose accommodations.
So far, I have traveled independently to over 20 countries, and fortunately, I have never had a problem choosing an accommodation.
I created my own list of hotels by searching Google ratings, travel reviews, HotelsCombined ratings, and Booking.com.
I hope there is someone who finds it useful.
In the case of Barcelona, ​​the Gothic and Laval districts were said to have poor security at night, so the search focused on areas near Plaza Catalunya or the Eixample district.
Search conditions are around 200,000 won per night/twin bed/Google rating generally 4.5 or higher/neat room condition/there must be an elevator (☆☆☆)/there must be space to spread out two 24-inch suitcases/there must be a shower due to the structure of the shower room It is to the extent that water will not leak out.
The prices below are based on 5 nights at the end of January 2024 (search time: end of August).
Please use this as a reference only.
This is my 4th time in Spain!
Spain is my favorite travel destination!

Part 2 Madrid

Part 3: Granada

————————————————– ————–

1. Hotel Alimara (470,000 won)
-Where I stayed in the summer of 2018
-It is located far from the city center, but the L3 subway Mundet station is 2 minutes away, so you can get to the center in 20 minutes, and it is convenient to travel by subway or bus (the L3 line passes all tourist attractions).
-The downside is that it is not a central area, so you have to go out to eat (you can take a break at restaurants with long waits if you find lodging near the city…ㅠ)
-The room and bathroom were quite spacious (24m^2)
-You can take the airport bus and then take the subway (round trip, 11.5 euros per person), or take a taxi from the airport for about 25 minutes (about 50,000 won one way).
If you’re going to take the airport bus, Plaza Catalunya is good, but I almost got pickpocketed there, so if I’m going to and from the airport with large luggage, maybe Uber would be better?
-There is an advantage in terms of price
