... a few snippets of what we learned on our free walking tour. Barcelona is in the Catalan Region of Spain and has its own language, history and culture. The Catalans have been the underdogs of Spain for centuries. Whenever there was a war to be fought they ended up supporting the wrong side and never managed to win their independence. The language was outlawed at various points in history but now children learn Catalan as well as Spanish in school. They are a ...
... very different. Haha we became experts at the metro system, carrying ourselves from the absolutely beautiful Sagrada Familia and its hanging weight method of construction to the St Josep Mercat with its €1 fruit cups and jaw dropping lolly and nut collections. It was my idea to drag everyone onto a big red tour bus on the first day though and in my opinion, that is what saved our ***** with finding our way around such a vast city and it also meant we got to visit places ...
... a little Spanish and we both ordered a 1 euro beer which came with a complimentary tapas. Bargain! I chose the deep fried crab claw, basically fake crab rolled in bread crumbs and deep fried. We started chatting to a French guy who was sharing our tiny table and not long later ordered another round. This time I got the deep fried meat thing which was actually quite nice however I have no idea what species of animal I was eating!! Once our beers were finished the three of ...
It's hard to believe that it's nearly been a week now since Nadia, Katie & I returned from our 2 weeks of exploring Spain, but I look forward to reflecting on the splendid time spent there through the stories and pics I'm about to share and especially the warmth - Krems greeted us with a mix of rain and snow. It's rare for this part of Austria to even get snow? Fancy that.
The trip began with improperly purchased return OBB train tickets - yes, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Aparthotel Atenea Barcelona
Stayed at the Aparthotel Atenea for 3 nights in April. The room was lovely and spacious and as described on lastminute/their website. Quite spacious, could easily fit 3 should they allow it. tv has a few English channels and the room was quite clean.
Had tickets for Barcelona FC waiting for us at the reception so they're quite trustworthy and friendly/helpful. They called Barcelona FC to confirm the seats were seated together(as the tickets were seats 137 and 139 but in the Nou camp thats the way they do it!!!)
Very good location, closest tube is less than a minute walk but the city centre is within walking distance(10mins max).
Breakfast was very clean,tasty,cosy but simple.
Would go back 100%.
Great hotel -at a great price
We stayed at the Aparthotel Atenea in April last year for 4 nights. We managed to get a good deal through lastminute.Our hotel room was very spacious - and everything in the bathroom had been sterlised which was great. The rooms were very clean.I think the hotel is a great location as it is not too far away from the centre.The only negative I have to say is that the lock was broken on our hotel room door - however this was sorted out very quickly and they arranged for us to stay in another room immediately.I would defnitely stay here again.
Lovely budget Hotel
This was our fisrt trip to Barcelona. We being three girls, looking for a fab time in barcelona. we were pleasently surprised with the quailty of the hotel, considering we got it so cheap. The staff are not that freindly, but we did'nt come to make friends with the hotel staff. the rooms are adequate and comfortable, with the added bonus of a fridge.
everything you need is available from reception, including the corkscrew to open that essential bottle of wine!! breakfast was great, although the hot breakfast looked a bit suspect!!! Getting around Barcelona was really easy, as the metro station is only a few steps away. great hotel, if you're just looking for somewhere to sleep and have a decent breakfast!!
Great Start to the Day
This hotel is very reminiscent of stark business-type accommodation - no frills at all but clean, neat rooms and a shower/bath that worked better than any other I've experienced in equivalent-price hotels in Europe. The breakfast was fantastic however - a huge buffet is available with good variety of dishes - A great start to your sightseeing day! A word of warning - make SURE you use the safe for any valuables. We had an incident where something was taken from the room.
This seems to be a problem common to a lot of hotels in Barcelona, however. All in all, for the price - I would recommend this hotel.
There is a station down the road so the location is convenient too.
