As a large number of Barcelona's attractions are spread far and wide over the city, we decide to use the hop on - hop off bus, as a means of visiting the sites that are of interest, or at least see them from the vantage point of the top deck of the bus. We first hop on at a stop ver close to our hotel, and we are told that the buses run regularly ( …
At 9.30 am we meet our guide Carmen, who is taking us on a half day walking/taxi tour of the city. We start by walking through the Placa de Catalunya and then turning into Passeig de Gracia, a wide tree lined boulevard that signals the beginning of the new city of Barcelona. Construction of the new city began at the end of the nineteenth century, …
At 8.30am, after a total of 27 days at sea, we say goodbye to Seabourn Legend, and board our bus bound for Rome airport. We'd have to say, even though we've both thoroughly enjoyed all the cruises, we are looking forward to being on dry land again. It takes about an hour to get to the airport, which means we have a four hour wait before we can …
... our swim in the Mediterranean and soaked up the sun. We were planning to go to a up scale restaurant for our anniversary but we were enjoying the beach so much that we forfeited that idea. Instead, we stayed on the beach until 7:00 and then taxied back to the hotel. We have tickets to the flamenco opera and we were looking forward to enjoying it.
The venue for the opera was in the famous Palau de la Musica Catalana Opera house and the performance has been ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Regina Barcelona
We just returned from a three night stay at the Best Western Regina with our two teenaged children. We got a four person room which was perfect for us (four single beds). It was clean, air conditioned, and modern. We had no problem with noise but may have been because of our location at the back of the hotel in a corner. The best part of the Regina is its location and the excellent breakfast buffet (fresh and plentiful). It is at the end of La Ramblas in Plaza Catalunya and is close enough to the sights to go back and take a "break" mid day and then head out again. We walked the entire stretch of the Ramblas to the waterfront and also to the Sagrada Familia in the other direction. Hard Rock is close by for those of you with teenagers and there's plenty of restaurants and great shopping in the Barri Gothic nearby. We would definitely stay here again.
Great location/Thin walls
This hotel is in a great location and has a delicious FREE breakfast buffet. However, the walls are very thin. Both the exterior street noise and the interior room to room noise were extremely loud and annoying. Not even my earplugs helped.
In addition the front desk staff neither spoke nor understood much English and were quite rude at times. For the amount of money they charge for a room I would definitely NOT recommend this hotel to anyone. If you'd like a decent night's sleep do NOT stay here.
Recent Visit - March 2004
Recently visited this hotel with my wife (March 2004). No grumbles at all, and I would endorse the many positive comments of other reviewers with regards to excellent location, breakfasts etc.
There was some renovation going on next door - also belonging to the Hotel Regina, I think) but any noise was confined to the hours of 08.00-16.00.
Staff very helpful and efficient.
If I had to make any adverse comment I would need to think hard........busy breakfast area, quite small with little room to pass by other chairs tables.....oh and yes.......the bathroom is lit by a single (but adequate) halogen light. We had requested a front room with balcony (other reviewer recommended this), and that was what we were given - clean and spacious.
Would we stay again?....Yes most certainly!
Great Hotel, Service and Location.
We stayed in the Regina for 4 nights during the summer last year and found the staff and location to be excellent, just off the main square at the top of the ramblas, the hotel provided a great base from which to explore the city. The Property had just been refurbished and the rooms were bright, clean and modern with all the facilities you would expect form a 3/4*. Breakfast was pleasant and relaxing. Shop around for prices though as these seem to fluctuate dramatically depending on which site you are looking at. The staff were friendly and helpful although there is no parking available which is disappointing - expect to pay 20 Euros per day.
Nice hotel....great location
My boyfriend and myself were in Barcelona in September 2003 for 4 nights. After looking at endless hotel on the Internet and reading countless hotel reviews, I finally chose the Hotel Regina because of its central location and price. It is cheaper to book it through Expedia than calling the hotel direct, which we got a great price for.
The hotel is on top of Las Ramblas with café and shops close by. The hotel room we were given was very small with barely any daylight coming in. After complaining we were given a much better room with an enormous bed and a separate sitting area. Breakfast choice was good i.e. cold meats, cereals. Cakes etc.
Brilliant stay here
My boyfriend and I stayed here in january 03 and we had an amazing time here. The location was perfect, right beside the metro, where you catch the tour buses, restaurants etc. The staff were lovely-especially the barman where we went for a couple of drinks every night-he was very generous with the drinks and snacks!! The breakfast in the morning was huge and filled you up for the day till dinner-everything was lovely and fresh. The room and bed were huge and very comfortable and there was no noise at night. Will definitely stay here if I return to barcelona
Great location / nice staff
We only stayed one night but wish we had stayed more. The location was perfect, right at the top of La Rambla and in walking distance to many other things. Also right next to the metro. The staff at the front desk was great. They gave us recs on where to go and some good places to eat and gave us a big map. Our room and bathroom were large, well decorated and clean.
They put us in the back of the hotel, however, without a view and in a smoking room (we're non smokers}. I would recommend asking for a room in the front of the building with a balcony and specify if you want a smoking room or not.
I would recommend this hotel to a friend.
Location is excellent. Hotel is in the centre of Barcelona and is a short walk to the old town and Rambla. Catalunya metro station is across the road.
Rooms are comfortable with plenty of storage space. Breakfast is above average with fresh pastries, breads and meats.
Tip: Dont ask for a taxi from the front desk as you will pay a supplement of EUR 3.50. Plenty of taxis stop across the road at the metro station.
Downside: 1) staff not that friendly (particularly the front desk) 2) Poor bathroom lighting
Not so great
Hotel was a big disappointment. Staff not that friendly when we first arrived. Room and bath room is super small. I felt like we're living in a cubicle. The walls are thin and could hear everything from all surroundings. Cleanliness is subpar. For the money, I would look somewhere else and this is the truth.
My family and I recently stayed at the regina hotel and it was wonderful. the desk staff was very knowledgeable, helpful and courteous. we had breakfast every morning, with a wide array of foods. pastries, meats, cheeses, fruits, some spanish dishes i could not tell you what they were, but the were yummy. from the moment we walked into the hotel, we were catered to. the room was nice. very spacious and clean. big towels and washcloths! hard to find in most hotels in europe! the location was perfect, especially if you are on foot. we would definitely stay at this hotel again. i say a+++ for the regina hotel.
