... All this in quite warm weather and with both our suitcases and having been up since 4.40am meant our moods weren't great. When we finally found the hostel, we were told we had to go somewhere else to get to our room. We were given an A4 piece of paper with a map and what looked like quite an easy route to the room. Wrong. We (Bradden was guiding, may I add) ended up walking again for half an hour down many different alleyways. Bradden was frustrated and I was near ...
We left for OR Tambo airport at around 16:00 yesterday the traffic was terrible.... it took us one hour to get to the airport. once we had gotten there we checked in and settled down in the lounge. This is where i took an obscene amount of selfies due to the fact that i was extremely bored and i just wanted the holidy to begin. the plane trips were both great and the food was great as well, for starters i ate salmon and tikka chicken. For main course i ...
... the day we only expected it to be 4 hours but it went for 6.5 which seems to be quite normal in spanish standards. The rest of the day was a bit lazy some having nanna naps some waching movies and some shopping. I am sure you can work out who did what! Tomorrow we might go to Costa Brava coast if we can work out the train system! ...
... all kinds of seafood, whole baby pigs, and we had empanadas stuffed with mushrooms. Then I had coffee (thank you Java Shack for my chocolate!) at a beautiful square right by our apartment. The kids watched some teenagers doing a gymnastics street performance. Such a pretty square with a fountain and great balconies. We wandered nearby pedestrian-only alleys and browsed through shops until Archer got tired. Lots of really cool streets to wander through. In the afternoon, ...
... Vicens, often described as the first major work by the architect who is inextricably linked with Barcelona, Antoni Gaudi. It’s a private house so only the exterior can be admired and even though it lacks the audacity of many of Gaudi’s later and more famous works it is still an exceptional building.
From Casa Vicens we made our way towards Placa del Sol and found the first of Gracia’s decorated balconies, a remarkable tribute to the sea with a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Acevi Villarroel Barcelona
Getting to the Aveci using public transport couldn't be easier. The closest Metro station is URGELL on Line 1 (exit to the right on the Metro platform for Ca. Villarroel when travelling from Sants) From here it's a 5 minute walk to the hotel - take a left on Ca. Villarroel when you come above ground.
We booked this hotel after reading reviews of it on this site. It was a wonderful experience. I have stayed in hotels in Barcelona on many occassions and this is by far the best. It is close to the centre yet far away enough to be nice and quiet at night. Our rooms were upgraded to duplex (bedroom and shower and downstairs a lounge area). The room was very modern and clean with great facilties including a safe, hi-fi with DVD player. The free internet access on each floor was a real bonus. The pool was great to cool down in and the sauna, steam room and jacuzzi were great to chill out in after a busy day being a tourist. The staff were very kind and helpful.
Great Hotel for the Money
My husband and I stayed at the Acevi for four nights in late July and I must say everything was great- the room and bathroom were very modern and spacious (had a room facing the back and it was very quiet), the staff were extremely helpful and the location was a 15-25 minute walk to Plaza de Espana and Plaza Catalunya. There are also public buses a block away or so that will take you all over town. Try the little Italian restaurant across the street - great Pizza. There are also a lot of little local cafes to have coffee and light sandwiches and tortillas. A steal at 70 dollars per night.
The Acevi Villaroel is a superb hotel with great facilities in a good location. I would highly recommend it especially at the rate of 75 euro per night. As mentioned it is about 15 mins to Rambla (try Attic Restaurant) and 30 mins walk to Port Vell (try the boat bar Luz Gas). All in all a great hotel in a great city!
I can only concur with the other reviews, we paid 85 euros a night and its great value for a top class hotel. This hotel is a very high standard, deserving its 4* status. It is situated in a quiter area, but perfectly safe to walk to and from all the main areas - about a 15 minute walk (if that) to Ramblas district and the subsequent hot spots. Metro located a few blocks down. Outside pool, whilst only shallow is more than adequate for cooling off if not for serious swimming, whilst the pool area is clean, moderm and because of its location - quite peaceful, even in the height of the season - there were no more than a dozen people round it at any time, with a relaxing spa facility in the pool. Indoor there is spa, sauna and some gym equipment, once again very clean and rarely busy.
I'd give this hotel a rating of 4/5, as I would class it as above average for hotels in Barcelona.
Expectations were exceeded
Well this hotel I would recommend to anyone looking for a relaxed stay in the beautiful city of Barcelona. The rooms and hotel was to the highest standard, the staff extremely friendly and helpful and for the price it was an excellent choice!! The Spa fascilities and gym equipment are free to use downstairs so if, like us, you wanted to soothe those aching joints after the long days out then this perfect.....Our only slight complaint was the size of the bin in our room, there was only one little peddle bin, but this isnt any biggy! Overall, if you can get this at a cheap rate like we did around 110euros per night, then its amazing value for money and classy to boot!!
This is a nice hotel which has classy furniture and fittings in a larger than average room. It is well located near the tube station and in walking distance of the Ramblas. It feels more like a business hotel than tourist. There is free internet access on all floors which was great - bring your e mail addresses with you to send regular updates home. The breakfast was varied and the staff friendly. I have only one gripe - they allow smoking in the breakfast buffett which is not only revolting but shows Spain years behind western countries in some of its attitudes. Perhaps I feel more strongly because we had a 2 year old in tow, but honestly...smoking over a buffet when I felt rough from all the cerveza...not on. Still, this did not detract from a great weekend in a good hotel....recommended
We were very impressed by the Acevi Villaroel for the price we paid. The rooms are modern and clean, the staff friendly and helpful and the breakfast pretty good.
It is well located about 10mins walk from Passeig de Gracia and Casa Batllo, but in a fairly quiet area of the city.
Would definitely go back.
Acevi Villarroel is one of the best value hotels I have ever stayed in.
We paid €80 per night which is a steal for a four star hotel in Barcelona.
The hotel was in a quiet part of the city but close to all the tourist hotspots.
We had a lovely double room with everything ranging from a cd player to a bottle opener for a nice bottle of rioja.
Every floor had computers with free internet access which was a nice touch and the staff were always hospitable.
If only every hotel were as nice as Acevi :)
