We left Vancouver today at 6pm onboard British Air, arriving at Heathrow at 11am. Three and a half hours later, we flew off to Barcelona to arrive at 6pm.

... but on a more human scale. How amazing it must have been to live in this concoction of curves and ripples, of light and air, of luminous glass and warm timber. There are so many eye-popping elements in this house, but even the simple white halls of the attic rooms are beautiful and clever in their functionality. I loved a little surreal movie being projected onto a model of he house, bringing all the fantasies to life. There must ...
... awesome. We visited some nice catholic church, walked around the old streets, stopped for Sangria in Placa Reial, which is your quintessential touristy European square with restaurants on all sides. We did visit the Barcelona History Museum which was quite amazing. The key attraction was the excavated old city dating back 2000 years. I didn't take any photos because my camera battery ...
... of prayer and reflection. However, Tommy added running, jumping and photo bombing to round it all out.
After waiting in a long line, the Madonna, La Moreneta, was lovely and the humble little room with prayer offerings of personal objects for prayer requests or as thanks for divine intercession was so touching.
We wandered and picnicked for lunch on Spanish meet ...
The airport here is like the final level in Mario Bros 3 for Nintendo. If you know the place/the game well enough, you can probably get there pretty fast. Unfortunately, we don't know where the Barcelona warp whistles are. As a result, it took us two subways, a train, and a bus to get to our terminal. But I won't bore you with the standard "traveling sucks sometimes" story. I am on the plane, I have my luggage, and soon English will be the primary language. Yay. Also, instead ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Marina View B&B Barcelona
Perfect location in vibrant and hip Barcelona
Our time in Barcelona was very special in large part due to the hospitality at MarinaView. Jose was an excellent host and went out of his way to make our stay a memorable one. The breakfasts served in our room were great, and the location was perfect. Everything was top-notch and I recommend a stay here to anyone looking for charm and impeccable service in an amazing city.
I stayed at Marina View this first week of July and it was perfect! I stayed in pier room and it was nice and comfortable. The breakfast every morning at the requested time was a perfect way to start the day and the best thing of all is the location, I cant imagine a better location in the city. This place is by far better than any other hotel I have stayed at around Europe and the U.S.
Great place to stay!
This B&B is in a great location and Jose is an awesome host! He was extremely helpful, gave me a laptop to use and breakfast was great. I ended up having to leave a day early and he didn't charge me for the early departure. Just an overall great place to stay.
Superb place to stay!
We booked two rooms. The Columbus room (very nice, beautiful furnished big room with a great view over the port) and a smaller room (Fishermens Room, also very well equiped but darker, with no nice view, but also cheaper) for our two children. The breakfast was served in our room and was always on time and very nice. The restaurant tips Jose (the owner) gave were better than the ones in our guidebook. He truely loves his job and so you feel very welcome. The weather wasn't to great when we stayed but we could use umbrella's that were available for the clients. The location is ideal: in the center of a beautiful city. We would advise it to all our friends!
We stayed there for three nights fri-mon in March. We booked in to the Pier room as the larger one with the marina view was not available. So happy we booked at Marina View. Excellent comfortable beds, very nice furniture a top class bathroom and modern conveniences such as mini bar, tea making facilities, internet hair dryer etc. Fantastic tasty brekfast with teas juices, fruits and breads served every morning in our room!
What it is - it appears to be a seven room apartment on the fourth floor which has been altered to a a VERY high standard into five excellent en-suite rooms. The sixth room is Jose's office, the seventh is a kitchen where the excellent breakfasts are prepared.
Great B&B in Barcelona - Marina View B&B
We stayed at the Marina View for 5 nites and it was simply fabulous. The innkeeper was charming and so helpful. The rooms were beautifully appointed and quiet. It's situation is excellent, right in front of the Barcelona port and floating shopping center, walking distance to all the sites in the old quarter. We were absolutely delighted and recommend it to one and all.
My husband, son, and I stayed at the Marina View for 10 nights. Barcelona is a fantastic city on its own, but our stay at the Marina View further enhanced the experience. Our room was immaculate and pretty, with a gorgeous view of the harbor that provided tranquility at the end of a busy day. The location of the Marina View is ideal, just a few blocks from the Ramblas and a metro station in one direction, the Barri Gotic in the other, and Barceloneta just across the street. Jose, the man who runs the B&B, is an ideal host, ever helpful and thoughtful of his guests' needs. Each morning he brought a delicious breakfast to our room, which we enjoyed in front of the beautiful view.
We stayed at marina view b&b for five days and fours nights over new year's 06-07. It was a wonderful place. we stayed in two rooms and the rooms with the balcony view are by far the best overlooking the marina. rooms with balcony are larger than others. other rooms are smallish but typical of b&b's in europe. rooms were en suite which were hard to find in barcelona, so this was a find. safe provided in room which was a plus. the breakfast of a selection of breads was very good with juice and good strong coffee. rooms were clean and neat. internet access too. b&b was on a major street so convenient to all the major sites which were within short walking distance and very close to metro to hit farther spots. it was quiet too in the rooms. best of all was jose, the innkeeper, he was very accomodating and nice. he even provided cava and grapes to ring in the new year in accordance with tradition and his restaurant recommendations were very good. in short, this place was a find and we'd recommend it to anyone who likes b&b's.
MarinaView B&B is a real find. I doubt if even Barcelona's grandest hotels can beat its location. It's next door to the Ramblas and a step from the bus for a tour completely encircling this amazing city. (A surprise round every corner!)
