So after a 10:30 hour flight from LAX to Frankfurt, Germany, a 2 hour layover in Germany, a two hour flight to Barcelona, we finally made it to Spain and shortly there after to our hotel.
We met up with our guide Frank at the hotel, he helped us get checked in and then went over the weeks itinerary Should have seen the look on the girls …
... to share our "year around the world" story with everyone who might have a personal encounter with them. I, on the other hand, am quite proud that as a member of the female species, and one that enjoys the accoutrements that can go hand in hand with maximizing one's femininity, I have been able to pare my belongings for a year down to one large bag (and part of my son's). Most women I know are likewise impressed with my packing frugality and I've beamed off ...
Barcelona Day 1We woke up and started walking around the Main Street where we knew there was a metro station. This area was full of high end stores and therefore not very appealing to us. We prefer to be off the beaten path. It is ok to be surrounded by tourists at certain times - like when at a big attraction, street performance or other situations where everyone wants to be there. but not all day, every day. So we decided to wait to eat to ...
... also a lovely place just to amble through on a warm, sunny March day.
Still left on my Barcelona bucket list? The Miró Museum, a hike up Tibidabo, a day trip to Girona, a drink at Las Arenas (converted bull fighting ring), a classical music concert at Palau de la Música Catalana, a tour of Casa Batlló and of course, a Barça soccer game! All that while ensuring I spent ample time at the beach before heading to rainy (but love-filled!) Dublin!
We woke rested in this quiet place with soft beds and good heating, shook off sleep and walked across our street, Avinguda de Gaudi, to a cafe for a simple breakfast and coffee before beginning this big picture day. The chill is on, 4 degrees and a brisk north wind from the mountains. We walked past the Sangrada, which we'll be able to do everyday, and tried to take in the enormousness of Gaudi's vision and the work so far. It will take seven ...

Historical Traveler Reviews B-Hotel Barcelona
Just back from a really fantastic 9 day holiday stay in Barcelona with my 9 yr old daughter.
Great hotel, were there first week of august 2005. Good location, right next to Metro Espanya - three or four stops to major sites at Liceu, Passeig de Gracia and Catalunya.
I'm just back from a 2 night stay at the B-Hotel in Barcelona. First impressions were 'WOW!'. The cool, marbled foyer is all clean lines and calmness. The seating area is like a trendy furniture store.
Great time at b-hotel
we enjoyed our time in b-hotel.rooms have minimal design and the pool is great.after walking in the city all day,being able to swim at the roof pool and watch the city was a good treat.room service was also good.try it,you will enjoy it for sure:)
We decided to stay at the B-Hotel after looking at the pictures on the web. This is a new hotel, so didn't have alot of reviews to go on. In the end, it was an excellent choice. The hotel did not disappoint and the real thing was even better than the pictures.
This hotel was everything I hoped it would be. The decor is really modern and the lighting & amenities all touch-button operated, or by sensor outside the rooms. The roof-top is unique - seemingly without walls, the view is straight down onto the Place D'Espanya - and you can swim to the edge in the pool and look right over. There is a bar service, but no discernible bar, although the area is in place on the ground floor. Breakfast costs 12 euros which is expensive compared to the many local cafes & patisseries, but the mini-bar prices are not too outrageous. The staff, apart from one on the front desk, were friendly and helpful. The hotel is well-situated for the many tourist attractions in Barcelona, especially if you appreciate the joy of walking in a foreign city. It is also extremely close to the airport - the 3.60 euro aerobus stops virtually outside. I loved the uniqueness of the B-Hotel and it was excellent value for money.
wonderfull staff, in particular all front desk, they are very helpfull. Nice rooms and very quiet. A modern building open in April 2005. I suggest to visit it.
Just come back from Barcelona. B hotel was lovely. Although not completed yet it did not affect our stay at all. Rooms very modern and large. Staff very helpful. Pool on the roof is very impressive would definitly recommend. Great value for money spent.
Very Nice Hotel
I stayed in B-hotel in April when it had just opened.
While not fully completed at the time i.e. no bar yet, I found it to be a very nice hotel. The rooms are very modern, clean and spacious and the staff friendly and very helpful.
The area is safe and not very touristy, which I liked. There are plenty of restaurants and cafes near by and it is only a 20 min walk to La Rambla.
I would definetly recommend it as I had a very enjoyable stay there at reasonable prices.
We stayed in the new B-Hotel In May and although I was worried about it only just being built, it turned out to be a great choice. It is in a great location, 5 min walk to the tube and very safe to walk around the area -even late at night. The rooms are all contemporary and although we did not get breakfast included, the hotel does have a great rooftop pool and sauna etc. which made up for it. The only bad point was that I booked a double room and we got given a twin. Apart from that I would definitely stay there again.
