... because of the lack of restaurants, but we enjoy shopping at the market and cooking. I want to take advantage of the easily accessible ingredients that have become ghosts in American supermarkets. Our next stop is San Sebastián which is sort of food mecca in Spain. We intend to fully exploit that fact once there. I have been craving seafood paella, however, and may not be able to hold out till our next city.
After dinner, we had to take ...
... continued onto the orange bus which is another route. This bus goes up the mountain and gives some amazing views over Barcelona and the port/beaches. We got off half way through and caught the metro back to the house. The metro ride home was an interesting ride with Mum and Aunty Maree...think they had been out in the sun too long and it had got to their head!! Was good to do the hop on hop off bus, especially the second one where we ...
... coolest fireworks I have ever seen. After we needed food, we stopped at this pizza stop and got a slice and one of the most delicious things I've had since I've been here. An Empanada. It's like a dumpling and mine was filled with seasoned beef. It was amazing though, I'm going to have to learn the recipe.
Now today, I just hangout before I start my busy week of Spanish classes and work!! I'm very excited though :) ...
... Some of that I will do when hubby join me on Saturday. At first I thought that I would take the metro to Segrada Familia and then do the walking backwards from there. Due to the fact that I am still a bit unfimiliar with the metro line and do not have a metro card, I decided to start walking. This work out so well because it was a nice "quiet walk with only few pedestrians and traffic. Great!, Going back via C de Mallorca to Placa de Mossen ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Acta Splendid Barcelona
Good for the money..
Stayed here for 3 nights over the new year, was happy with how clean and modern the rooms were and the staff were friendly. 10 minutes walk to Place Catalunya and there is a small 24h grocery store at the top of the street.
The main streets were safe at night but later on some of the side streets looked a bit seedy.
For the value, this is a great hotel to stay. Stayed for 9 nights, staff members are extemely friendly and accomodating. From the cleaning staff, front desk, and breakfast bar staff, they were very kind. Room was clean, nice and modern furnishings. The bathroom was clean and beautiful, all in marble. I would say this is one of the top 3 star hotels I have stayed in. Barcelona, I think set hight standsards for their 3 star hotels in general. Location was great, on a quiet street and close to the universidad metro. I walked around the neighborhood late night and found it relatively safe when I went out alone (39 yr male). Of course, I recommend safety precautions for all travlers.
Good value for the money
Stayed for 4 nightes in August 2004. The hotel is very quite and clean. 10 minuets walk from la Rambla. We ordered via the web and got great return for the money.
p.s. the hotel has changed its name from "Best Western Hotel Splendid"
Now called the Apsis Hotel Splendid
A group of 4 couples stayed in the Splendid to celebrate a couple of our 40th Birthdays. We found it to be very clean and the staff helpful. My wife and I had a Junior Suite which was excellent for us meeting together as a group. Bathrooms were particularly "splendid". Mini bar prices were reasonable. It took us about 10 minutes walk to the top of the Ramblas/Catalunya Square via main streets. I would not advise using side streets late at night but stick to main routes where we felt totally safe. There were some restaurants nearby, we ate in a Chinese which was very good. There is a 24 hr supermarket on same street as hotel (2 mins walk). All in all a great base at reasonable cost and I would recommend it to others.
Stayed at this hotel just before Christmas 2003.
The hotel is very clean and comfortable and the staff very friendly and helpful. They arranged for tickets to see Barcelona FC including a car from door to stadium and back again.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Barcelona, It's only 5/10 minutes from Placa de Catalunya.
Great location,helpful staff,and unusually quiet.Perfect!
The hotel is only a few minutes walk from Playa de catalunya and la Rambla,but once inside our room it was very quiet.There was no view as such from the window but this was more than made up in the care and attention the stuff gave us.
Buffet style breakfast was reasonable,even for a vegetarian.We were amazed that every day our room was serviced(we really became quite lazy). Only one small complaint though, on rainy days and we had several there were not any English speaking tv channels (except CNN), and of course the ones you have to pay for!
