After breakfast we did our last minute check of our cabin, collected our hand luggage and headed to the Concerto Lounge where we had to wait before disembarking. It was impossible to use the lifts - as they were full of people and their luggage, so we trudged down the stairs... Once it was our turn to leave the ship and collect our large luggage, we found the bus which would drop us off at Catalunya Plazza, close to our hotel. ( ...
... predominantly sold fish ( surprising that being right next to the sea) and Jill doesn't like fish so we had to head into town for something else. We meander through the narrow streets of the Gothic Quarter and have a meal in a small Italian, Jill has carbonara and I go for the tagliatelle with lobster. I know I have a reputation as a food snob but I was a little worried when half a lobster arrived on one plate and the pasta on another, I was going to have to crack the lobster ...
... excited by this, and after many a nights discussing the purchase of the peanut butter, we smothered it on thick to some rice crackers, pairing it with some sliced banana. Oh it was heaven.... Oh so good... But of course we went one step too far and managed to consume 3/4s of the jar in one sitting, resulting in Kathryn and I swearing off peanut butter for the rest of the trip. The 'P word' is now banned.... - Finally Madrid. Starving as usual, walking the streets ...

Dubai airport is such a happening place. No matter what time you arrive, the airport is packed full of people and buzzing, It's wonderful.
2004 was the first and last time we were in Dubai. We had a few hours to wander around despite feeling somewhat tired. I bought some nuts and we munched on them whilst waiting at the gate for our connecting flight. Well we learnt that they decided to change the gate ...
... system. Its an interesting hotel with a very modern design. For 90 Euros a night, its fantastic value as its next to the metro, large room by European standards, nice gym and roof bar and right opposite a large shopping centre. It is a bit out of town but only 5-10 minutes out so its just great value. The only thing is the hotel has poor service or very little service. But I wasn't complaining as its "Spain" and also for such a low ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Confortel Bel Art Barcelona
We was in Bel Art Hotel last weekend of February. The staff was very nice with us all the tiem, and also offer to us a wonderful with a very nice view to a park in front of the Hotel. The room was also very big and the direccion offer us a champagne as they saw in our passport that was my husband anniversary.
Also the restaurant have a very good cuisine and the waiters there was very clean and helpful.
Of course, I will back to Bel Art Hotel when I will back to Barcelona.
Can't go wrong with this one!
Hotel was good, as expected from a 4 star, although staff could have appeared a little brighter/happier. The club nextdoor tends to make weekends a little more difficult to fall asleep, and we didn't exactly get to bed early either! Pretty well situated and tube stn up the road to get to the city centre with ease. Food is good, although a little pricey.
Lovely but loud!
We stayed for three nights. Lovely bright clean hotel with friendly staff but exceedingly noisy as next to a nightclub. We got moved to back of hotel but still heard music all night.
Good value bel art
The hotel Bel Art was surprisingly good, especially for the cheap internet rate we paid. Rooms very nice and spotlessly clean, beds very comfy, bathroom excellent, air con included too. The breakfast was excellent, loads and loads of choice, yummy cakes too. Location out of the centre, but we liked that. 5 minutes to the yellow metro line which goes all the way into town. Only gripe were the instructions given to get there (there wern't any) and we ended up walking a long way. Get the metro, yellow line and get off at Alfons X. Follow lapanto signs, hotel just down the road on the right. It can be confusing as it seems to be called The Bel Air as well!
Somewhere nice to eat is Bar Ra, behind Boqueria Market on La Rambla. Walk through market, turn to the right and you will see the colourful parasols. Eat 3 course lunch + small drink for 9 euros, Delicious.
My girlfriend and I stayed at Hotel Bel Art and we were impressed. I have stayed in other 4 star hotels in Europe and I definitely did not have high expectations of the hotel (especially given the price). However, our room was very clean and air conditioned, the bathroom large and the bed extremely comfortable. The location was not a problem - we definitely did not feel unsafe. We even managed a walk from Las Ramblas to the hotel which took about 35 minutes. The hotel staff was friendly and bi-lingual. There was, however, a nightclub next door which we could hear faintly through the double glazing. But this stopped at midnight so it was not a problem. We would stay there again.
Not as good as the photo's
This was a hotel I chose from a well known "last minute "website. A mistake! The hotel is on the outskirts in a typical poor surburban area of town. The first room we were given smelt of sewage. The reception staff brought a can of spray out! It was the chambermaid who told him there was a problem with the loo and we were moved upstairs. The room was standard chain standard in style. However we were unhappy with the following: -The most uncomfortable bed EVER! -The room was boiling woth no visable air con -The sateillite TV only had dodgy German channel - The rooms overlook a building that is being renovated. very noisy. Its one redemming feature is that it within walking distance of Gaudi's cathedral which was a complete bonus as we visited it after the tourist buses had gone.
We stayed here for 3 nights and it worked out to be a great choice. It's location is good or bad depending on what you want. We did NOT want to be on the Ramblas. If you want to be in the center of the action, don't stay here. The hotel is about 8 blocks from La Sagrida Familia, which we knew and liked when we made our reservations. We were able to walk there. We were also about 3 blocks from the Barcelona Subway system, which we used quite a bit.We read on-line that some of the Barcelona hotels did not honor internet reservations or rates and we were reassured that because the Bel Air was part of the Quality Inn chain, our reservation would be honored-- which it was.The hotel itself is clean and simple. It looks as if it was recently redone. Our first room was quite hot and they switched us immediately, no questions asked. Both rooms were of adequate size, not huge but well within the standards at European hotels. They definitely cater to tourists and since we were, it was perfect.
