London and Barcelona Hotels! Where should I stay?

3 May 2013 ChristineJoy asked


Hey everyone!

I booked the Road to Athens tour that officially starts July 8th. I'm leaving early and checking out Barcelona and London before the tour starts. Anyone have awesome recommendations on where to stay? A few suggested hostels but I'm willing to pay a little more to stay at a decent hotel. I'm going solo on this trip and have never been to Europe so I welcome all suggestions.

Also if there is anything cool I need to check out let me know...places to eat etc...

    Oh nice! I decided to not do Barcelona and just explore London for 5 days before the tour starts. Im only staying an extra night in Athens before heading home at the end!
