This hotel is great and in a central location. The bed is extremely comfortable and the shower never disappoints. It overlooks a main road in Barcelona, making it fun to look down and see what's happening. It's close to the metro station and near a big shopping hub. The only disappointing thing is the wi-fi speed, it is pretty ridiculous in such a large metropolitan city.

... a hill. It reminded us of San Francisco streets. After hiking to the top, we rested our calves and then headed inside. We were met with marvelous panoramic views of Barcelona with the Mediterranean Sea acting as a backdrop. We hiked up to one of the highest points and took pictures from there while listening to the worst Elvis impersonator ever sing songs and strum his guitar. Before heading back down, we stopped at a bar for a round of beers and ...
... the wifi which was fast once we had managed to read the password.
A taste of Barcelona Our first taste of Barcelona was from Dolceria de la Colmena or La Colmena, one of the oldest cake shops in Barcelona. Although the exact date it was founded is unknown it has been serving pastries and cakes for over a century. The shop front windows are full of pastries and candies and chocolate at the side.
We had a rather good mixta - ham ...
... used the Rick Steve's book to pick our restaurant. We picked a dud based upon seeing several Spanish speaking families sitting on the paseo. Apparently they were tourists too - bad choice. At least a big gelato after, evened it all out. Becca's Corner: Obviously the garrotito (the delicious chocolate croissant for breakfast). This is the gastronomic sensation of the trip so far. We may need to move to Pamplona . . ...
