We stayed at the Hotel Monegal in Barcelona. Not cheapy cheap, but right at the top of Los Ramblas. You can check it out on the website below.

Lucky you.

Most accomodation in Spain is inexpensive compared to UK. Quality 3star accom is the price of some decreped UK B&B. We booked a 1star hotel last year in Valencia 50 a room bang in the middle of the town. Spotless.

Being a paranoid android, I nearly always get a hotel with secure parking. IBIS has this plus a standard of room that you do not need to worry about,(dble bed/en suite/parking/air-con/free swedger). I can honestly say the standard of hotel in Spain is the highest for the money I have experienced in Western Europe. NEVER had a bad one.

For us , 60-80 for 2/3/4star accom France or Spain in the big towns/cities. I got the missus so she wants a certain standard of room. Hosteles and Pensions are much cheaper still but great value and standard. I would rather feckin tent-it in the UK!

If you are going to the GP in Barcelona I would book ahead for peace of mind. Tons of choice. Montmelo is where the "madness" happens on the fri/sat before the race. Leave your end-cans in your rooms

Please, please do Banyuls-sur-mer(i think) - Tossa del mar . Part of the N260( the best road in the world,probably. Any of it). Blow yer feckin mind!

Lucky you!
