We've arrived... 11.30 local time. Friendly taxi ride from the airport cost less than we were expecting; €25 with a tip. Driver was chatty and very appreciative of our stumbling attempts at Spanish. The apartment is spartan in the nouveau style but clean, tasteful and spacious. Photos may follow, but the wifi seems a bit erratic, and a bit slow... Time for bed...
Barcelona is one of the most unique cities I have ever visited. There are influences from different cultures such as French, Spanish, Arabic, and many more. After walking through the city these past couple days, I have felt this sense of being back in Montreal many times due to the similarities in the culture. Both are a mix of many things, yet …
Located smack dab in the middle of Catalunya, this vibrant city seems to be awake all night-teeming with tourists in the morning and early afternoon, and giving rise to the more local peoples when the sun goes down and the bars officially open. The main dialect is Catalan, which tends to be a bit difficult when my class is for …
... driver who took us for a 2-hr tour of sites we hadn't seen last time. Parc de la Ciutadella, Olympic Park, Montjuic. The Olympic stadium isn't used much anymore, except for rock concerts. We had intended to see Sagrada Familia today but taxi driver said tomorrow would be less crowded. At dinner tonight we ordered an appetizer that was one of the most delicious things we've had.

... activity has been dining in the open-air cafes along the tree-lined street, La Rambla. Although it is late September the air is warm even at night. It is magical to sit there sipping wine, eating Paella and people watching. We have been pleasantly surprised at how much we can access our spanish even after 8 months of neglect.
Tomorrow we start our bike tour of the Pyrenees and I can only hope I feel as well prepared for biking as I have for travelers' ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Atenea Calabria Apartaments Barcelona
For 50 Euros a night myself and my girlfriend got to stay in a quiet Barcelona street, in a hotel with clean and cool rooms, balcony and TV (and small kitchen too if you need a cool beer). Everyone is frienly here and there is a supemarket next door for supplies.
This is not in the Ramblas but you can walk it in 15 minutes and stop off at some local places on the way. Walk a different route each time and see what you find.
I recommend Calabria to anyone who is looking for a clean, comfortable and friendly place to stay and either cant find a place in Ramblas or intentionally goes for a more residential area. It isn't high class (whatever that means), but who wants to waste a fortune on a place to sleep when places like this do it perfectly well?
Great deal for the money!
I just stayed at Aparthotel Calabria for five days and the place is great! The rooms are large and roomy - which is quite a treat for most of the hotels I've stayed at in Europe have small rooms. The location of the property is very convenient. It's just close enough to the sites that you can walk or take the metro, but far enough that you're not stuck in touristville. My husband and I enjoyed the comfort of being in a neighborhood that was quiete and where we were able to experience living among the locals.
we did like the service of calabria hotel apartment in barcelona. the hotel is in the very quite street en not so far from the nearest metro station( i think it's more than 3 minuten walking!) we got a very big room (we asked room voor 2 adults en 1 child ). that was really surprising us because they have big kitchen (they provide also electrical cook, boarden, spoon, fork, pannen, etc), a room foor tv en sofa, a big bedroom, big balkon, and a big bath room ! a perfect hotel voor a family with children! the hotel is alos close (next door) to big supermarket en also children playground. but we didn't get the room with AC even the travel agent said that the rooms are with AC. they have only ventilator but didn't work. it was very pity because the room was so hot in the morning and at noon. but not in the evening. the breakfast also very very good. big assortiment of brood and sweet brood. we love to stay there. especially because you can cook for your self and also for the children.
Cheap, but nice
I just stayed there for 4 nights and I really liked the place. It is very close (3min walk) to Rocafort underground station (red line, 3 stops from Placa de Catalunya). The place is quiet (we were on the first floor, but we did not hear anything from the street). The room had a bathroom, a small kitchen, a bedroom and another room with a desk and a sofa (actually, another person could have slept on the sofa). The breakfast was huge: eggs, bacon, sausages, lots of cakes, biscuits, hot drinks, fresh fruits (strawberry for you). Plenty of optional to get: soaps, shampoo, razors, sponges, tissues, toothbrush and toothpasta. I got'em all! It seems strange to me that it does not rank higher in the Tripadvisor chart. We booked it with -----------------------------and we found a nice deal.
Hotel Calabria provided very comfortable and spacious accomodation.We stayed over for a couple of nights with our three teenage children and were entirely happy with the service provided and the cost. There is convenient parking right next door in an underground car park below a supermarket.( Although we parked our landrover in there ok, the height restrictions were a bit touch and go!)The beds were comfy, the view at the back was fascinating...if not very picturesque and the breakfasts as enormous as you wanted them to be!Location was ideal with easy access to metro and walking to Ramblas took only half an hour, taking in the atmosphere along the way!
