This was the first time we'd spent Sant Joan's (St. John's) Eve in Barcelona and we chose to do it away from the beaches. Words to follow - photos for now.
... s semi-autonomous government. Speaking of government, we learned the story of the Catalonian flag. Legend says the four red stripes on a yellow background represent stripes of blood made by four fingers across the shield of Wilfred "The Hairy" as he was dying in battle. Today the same flag can be seen flying on balconies all across the city with a blue star on one side. This new version represents the desire for the Catalonian people to separate from Spain and ...
... performers at each one. Again very local....some quite good and others...well....doing the very best they could! It was fun to see the local people out supporting the event - families and children dancing in the streets. One of our favorite images from this area was the day we cycled through several smaller villages. At one point we stopped for a break and all of a sudden we heard this loud screeching sound. We looked up and saw a maniacal looking boy ...
... trying to run away, or just plain tourists. Yup, we were tourists. And we see locked out of our heaven - the privilege of a single bed. Once being able to get into our rooms, we dropped off our things and began to explore the city. We went to Plaza Reial, the port and La Rambla. However, we were so tired that we decided to return to our hostel for a quick nap - we had gone two days without showering, without a bed and without real breakfast or lunch. The "quick" nap turned out ...

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.
Great shopping around the corner
The hotel is a little out off the beaten track, which means it is quiet, staff were not rude but were not friendly or helpful (a hello or a smile out of them was a struggle )
The room was ok, clean, basic and a nice bathroom and the communal areas extremely nice. Breakfast was very good, better than most cuisine I sampled in Barcelona, under no circumstances have a meal brought to your room unless you have the appetite of a sparrow and the income of Bill Gates!!!
But best of all if you head towards avenue diagonal (left if your coming out the door) from the hotel all the way into town are some very nice shopping centres, which we initially mistook for offices.
The area is also very well serviced by bus and metro....
Barcelona is a beautiful city so you wont need to be in the hotel. If your not looking to make friends outta the staff, it is an ok hotel.and you could do alot worse!!!
