Travel Blogs from Barcelona
We all woke bright eyed and bushy tailed after yesterday's big travel day. I think we were all fast asleep by 8.30pm. Went to the hotel restaurant for breakfast and it was very yummy. We all had a hot breaky of eggs, bacon.... You know the usual.......
Off down the street by 8.30am to get to the bus for our tour to Montserrat. Along the …
Today, Easter Saturday we decided to do the hop on, hop off bus around Barcelona taking in La Sagrada Familia and Park Guell, easy!!
Late start because everyone is a little tired (not sure why, we are on holidays??) but we agree to meet for late breakfast and then a leisurely walk into town to meet the hop on hop off bus (HOHO).
Arrived safely....... As everyone knows it takes a long time to get to Europe. 3 flights later we are here. First 2 flights were ok, no complaints but feeling a little cramped. Last flight was on the A380 and we had the 4 seats at the start of the section so no one was in front of us, fantastic! We could stretch our legs. The A380 was also very …
... I got first pick of rooms and chose the one with the balcony over the ally. After Helena left and Jordan and I unpacked our extremely overpacked suitcases (sorry for that weight overcharge on the bag daddy) we decided to be aggressive and go on a walk around the neighborhood. We tried to stay closer to the more populated streets, although I have now realized some of the more empty streets are where you ...
... the city! Our hotel, the HCC Montblanc, is in the center of the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona. Our rooms were not yet ready so we took the opportunity to walk around and see the close sites. Some of which include the Palau Reial Major, the former residence of the Kings of Aragon, and many more! We then ate lunch locally and headed back to the hotel. After freshening/resting up for a few hours, we decided to go walk to La Rambla, an avenue of shops and kiosks. We walked around ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Acta Atrium Palace Barcelona
One or the best recently opened
I chose this hotel to accommodate some friends visiting the city. As far as I know Barcelona hotels, the Atrium Palace is one of the nicest in the downtown area: modern, elegant and plenty of touches. Excellent value if you find an offer.
Good location, Modern Design, Great Breakfast
Atrium Palace is located about five minutes on foot from Plaza Catalunya, where the Airport bus drops you off. That means that you are in walking distance of places to eat and shop and yet in an area quiet enough to not feel overwhelmed (as you might walking along the Ramblas).
The rooms were modern, elegant (definitely four-star), good size working desk, comfortable beds, sufficient lighting, a safe for valuables, and excellent amenities. On the first floor there is a small air conditioned lounge/library with computers (for use?) and there is also a pool located underneath the hotel.
The breakfast buffet is simply amazing and ranks among the best ones that I have ever had. Cava and water and wine, fresh fruits, wonderful meats and cheeses and mild coffee. If you are able to get a rate that includes breakfast (for maybe 10 EURO a person), opt for it. It's an excellent deal.
Would not hesitate to stay here again.
Could not be better!
We stayed at this hotel as part of my mothers birthday celebrations so it was important that everything was perfect. We booked online and asked for a room for three. The hotel provided us with an enormous room that was stylishly furnished and immaculate throughout. But what made our stay so perfect was the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff.
Nothing was a problem for them, they would give directions, book your taxi and tell the driver personally where you want to be, recommend local restaurants. If you are lucky enough to stay, ask EVA on reception about her beautiful jewlery which she makes herself! The hotel is brilliantly situated, around the corner from the Ramblas. The spa was great and helped our aching feet at the end of the day!

We booked the hotel direct as they spoke good english and answered emails i sent to them. The rate i got was 195 euros including taxes and breakfast.T he hotel was located in the best part of Barcelona near Plaza De Gracia and not far away from La Rambla (disapointing).the hotel is clean and we couldnt fault it in anyway. T he bed was hard but we like hard beds.If you are arriving from the aiport simply take the train to Plaza De Catunla and you are simply 10 minutes walking from the hotel. Would go back there again.
Just be carfull!! Booked 3 weks before arrival, but no room.Me and my wife arrived at 22:00 time, after longflight, finally found the place (taxi driver have no idea about this hotel).After booking with credit card confirmation, when I asked for the room the person at reception said our room is not available "..as techincal problem..", before us was a French group got similar story.When I asked the person for his name he refused totell me.Just keep a way form this place.Eli Keren
Had a very quiet street side room with a nice balcomy. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant was very good. The breakfast buffet was fabulous and very nicely set up. The restaurant staff were very accommodating one evening close to closing time when all we wanted was a salad, bread and wine. The salad was beautiful.
Superb in every way
This was our favorite hotel out of many in a 10 city European tour. We got an incredibly good deal at the hotels own Web site (for a minimum three night stay it was only 108 Euros per night for a double). The hotel is new, beautifully designed and executed in all ways. The lobby was lovely, an office suite provided free 24 hour internet access, the small indoor pool, gym, spa, and sauna were very clean and relaxing and well-done in design (wonderful little details like inset lighting and wood trim, or the light in the pool that changed colors). The room was gorgeous and fairly large and comfortably air conditioned, with an iron and ironing board built into the closet, the bathroom was incredible (stainless fixtures, floor to ceiling marble, a bidet). The bed was a bit too firm, but we adjusted. The front desk service was exceptionally good friendly, knowledgeable, proactively helpful (asking do you need a taxi? after recommending a few good restaurants or a Laundromat). Location is good - a few blocks up from the Plaza Catalanya and the Ramblas, so not right in the thick of all that bustle. Highest praise for everything!
Fabulous!! Brand new hotel, 1920's building - attractive interior, very comfortable and in a perfect location!!Staff were very attentive, kind and supportive. Patient while they let me ramble on with my broken Spanish... but hey..I need the practice!Great for business, on your own or with the family.Will visit again.. absoultely excelling! Thank you BW.
A good one
A brand-new hotel, 4 star, near the Ramblas, with very good prices (maybe because it's still new and unknown? We paid 130 € + tax for a double, which is the price of a similarly-located 3*). Lovely room, marble-tiled bathroom. The AC is really good - you don't even notice it, except for the fact that the temperature is perfect.
