There is a very varied choice of 3 and 4 Star Rambla Catalunya Hotels on this lovely Barcelona Eixample avenue, which although not as famous as Passeig de Gracia is in my opinion much nicer.
I've organised this selection of hotels and apartments starting close to Plaça Catalunya and Barcelona City Centre and working up the hill towards the Gràcia neighbourhood.
The truth is, though, any location on tree-lined Rambla Catalunya is almost bound to be marvellous.
Low numbers mean you're close to Plaça Catalunya, The Ramblas and the Barri Gòtic.
Mid-range numbers are the area around La Manzana de la Discordia, La Pedrera and the magnificent Modernista architecture that this implies.
The higher numbers denote the fact that you're very close to the authentic old neighbourhood of Gràcia itself with its honky-tonk bars and magnicent restaurants.
Whichever Rambla Catalunya hotels you choose, you're always close to Barcelona's most important sights and a short walk from either Catalunya, Passeig de Gràcia or Diagonal Metro Stations.

Just across the road in an impressive 19th century palace with Baroque-style columns and colourful ceramic floors, the Praktik Rambla looks a very good choice to me.
The interior has been daringly modernised and features chic rooms with a minimalist design, which come with air conditioning, free Wi-Fi and a private bathroom, decorated with striking green tiles.
The hotel also has a typical Eixample interior patio comfortable sofas where guests can relax and from June to September, free fruit juice is served on the terrace from 16:00 to 20:00 every day.

The sumptuously decorated rooms are equipped with free Wi-Fi and all the modern facilities.
In addition to a hot and cold breakfast, the Hotel Continental Palacete has a varied food and drink buffet on offer throughout the day and evening.
