... stone. The second day we spent the morning closer to Montse's home. First she took me on a tour of her school, she taught English in a primary school this year. I enjoyed seeing their classrooms, library, garden, English classroom, and finally the music room. The school janitor was nearby & Montse encouraged him to play something on one of the guitars, he jumped right in with the fugees "killing me softly". There's nothing like an ...

Dinner was nice, very noisy but we hope that is because there are a lot of excited people. Our waiter was a funny little man named Dolly..... His smile is as big as the Grand Canyon and his giggle was infectious.
700 Australians on board, 2100 people in total and there are heaps of Americans. They are an interesting lot...... Some are larger than Texas and it is hard to know if you saw them or heard them ...
... slowly nibble my food. Nuts. Everywhere. And pain and swelling and sickness and hives and heartburn and losing my dinner/lunch ensue. 3. My way - Barcelona is trick to navigate. A week into our visit I still didn't have my bearings here - not sure how long one would need to be here before they could navigate the streets with confidence. Toronto's simple grid layout has spoiled me - the streets here all seem to radiate from a number of plazas and roundabouts, circles ...
We left Madrid for Barcelona through Aragon where that queen came from and to Catalonia. Over castille LA man cha which is a wind swept, battered plateau and famous for the home of the knight down Sukkot. It really was interesting country side. Lots of rock and then a paddock of hay made in the middle of the rocks. Again towns are where they can't grow anything and they don't spread out but are very compact. We had two stops on the way just on the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Astoria Hotel Barcelona
Very Nice Hotel
We had to spend one night in Barcelons in July 2004 and as usual checked Trip Advisor for info.
This hotel has had mostly good reviews and they were right.
It is a very nice hotel in a very good location. One night is perhaps not long enough to give a proper review but in the time we were there the hotel certainly was well worth the 3 star status it has.
We booked online directly with the hotel and got a very good price (94 euros) and a very clean room with a nice clean bathroom.
The breakfast is an extra 11 euros and,while it is pretty good,you may find better value and choice in one of the many cafes etc. in the area.
We would certainly have no hesitation in choosing this hotel for future trips to what is a fantastic city.
Great place to stay
Great place to stay in Barcelona. Very friendly staff. Rooms are clean, and the housekeepers do a nice job. Nice location. Make sure that you ask for a room with a window (not the airshaft). Can be a bit noisy from streetnoise (as in just about anywhere in Barcelona), but if you are a light sleeper earplugs will do the trick. I would definately stay here again.
The hotel exceeded my expectations of a 3-star hotel. It's location is close to Gaudi's Casa Mila and about 20 min walk from Placa Catalunya.
It's very clean, well equipped and the service is good. Highly recommended
Loved the location!
Stayed here for 3 nights in January. Excellent location. Within walking distance of Las Ramblas - or there's a bus stop right outside the hotel!!! We were lucky, having read other reviews we requested one of the few double rooms which had a great view. Lots of beautiful authentic restaurants near and if you like designer shopping, you couldn't pick a better location.
Stayed here for 4 nights in Jan 04. Room average with poor view but warm & decent amenities. Buffet style continental breakfast - excellent.
5 mins from metro and in an upmarket area with plenty of shopping/restraunts
This hotel was very good - location away from hustle and bustle, but still very convenient. Spacious, clean and airy rooms and lobby. Polite staff.
August 2003 Just got back, had an excellent time, nice to enter into a cool air conditioned Hotel & room from the intense heat outside, decor very impressive,breakfast was a lovely selection of cereals,meats & fruit, plenty of staff on hand to help when necessary.Disappointed there was no cocktails on offer in the evening. Some lovely restaurants nearby, and taxi rank just outside.Hotel location just far enough away from noise and car horns. I would recommend this Hotel to anyone.
Hotel Astoria was Excellent.
Stayed at the Hotel Astoria. The hotel was very nice and all the people very friendly and very accommodating. The only slightly negative item would be that our room was right next door to the cleaning closet and it got a little loud when they started cleaning in the morning. But, everything was very clean and the rooms were great. Barcelona was AWESOME, including the Costa Brava and the nearby mountains. I highly recommend all of it!
Very Mixed (and yes, Bizarre)
We were not very pleased with this hotel. We were given a relatively very expensive room (150 euro/night) that was small, cramped, and had no external window. Instead, the window opened onto a creepy airshaft with very little light or air. We were disappointed, to say the least, and asked to change rooms. The hotel staff were not gracious in handling our request, and it was only when we packed our bags and prepared to stay elsewhere that the staff promised us a room with an outside window the following night. (after refusing to refund our reservation deposit of one night's stay if we did leave). Admittedly, the room we had on the second night was bright and had a view, and the bathrooms were quite nice, although not worth the price charged. We were informed by the hotel staff that there are only 7 double rooms with outside windows in the entire hotel. The rest of the rooms face on the gloomy airshaft. Another disappointment with the Astoria is how difficult it was to get around Barcelona from the location. It took us quite a long time to reach downtown, and we wasted much of our day travelling to and from the hotel and nearby attractions. Overall, not worth it. One of the places down closer to the Cathedral would be a much better bet, and much less of a crunch on the pocket book.
Great location, peculiar service
Yes, this is a great location. Yes, the refurbished rooms have a stylish sense of wit.
Service is bizarre. We were travelling with children and discovered a startled bellboy lurking outside our kids' room at 2 a.m. When we enquired about his business there, he ran away! The car park is a garage in the next block, which is sometimes locked up at, say, 9 in the morning; one must go back to the hotel and wait for a bellboy to find a key in order to retrieve one's car or to park it. Our room was facing the street, but was quiet. Our kids room had a window onto a creepy airshaft. But if you are interested in the modernista Barcelona, the location is unbeatable. If you are driving, it is located just off the Diagonal, and so if convenient for making trips to nearby.
