You can stay at Hotel Soho or Hotel Balmes in Esquerra from where you can easily access the Joan Miró park, the Novecentista Mercat del Ninot, and the University of Barcelona gardens, which hosts concerts and markets throughout the year. Image Credits
In the Dreta, which comprises modernist buildings, you can find hotels like Claris and Majestic, where you can divide your time between enjoying their spa facilities, shopping along Passeig de Gràcia, and having a leisurely walk down Passeig de Sant Joan before hitting one of the man bars that line the street.
