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.
A nice hotel family
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!

... Tablao Flamenco Cordobes then with 4 hours to kill, took a nice long walk and what we found was simply stunning. There is amazing architecture here in Barcelona like I have never seen and a lot of it is quite gothic. First port of call was tapas and sangria, I love the tapas here and tapas bars are all over the place throughout Spain, we had roman style calamari, Patatas with this delist sauce, battered cod balls and tomato ...
... suggest that we get food and plan to eat most of our meals by using our kitchen. Daniels not super stoked but agrees. Dinner will be in tonight so we can be ready for a long tour day tomorrow. Pray the rain stops.
We have fun making dinner together and cuddle up for some good sleep. So far Barcelona has grown on us quickly- Do you believe in love at first sight? Remember Daniel does J Love you and miss you ...
... as the Adelaide Central market on Steroids. We tried some of the local jamon and cheese, found a lolly stall and checked out the prized seafood on offer. which was pretty good.
The old streets meander here and there, the same as most other European cities from ancient days and we learnt bits and pieces of the progressive history of Barcelona. A couple of the streets actually follow the Roman streets set up in that time. ...
... Katie even ate it. Cooper eats everything that is put in front of him so there is no issue there. The kids got to have a glass of Sangaria for the first time. Most of them liked it. For the ones who didn't finish their glass, there was someone else who was more than willing to finish it for them. Back to the hotel after dinner to pack. Its been a long, exciting week. We are all exhausted. Memories that will last a lifetime....so ...
... walk from the bus stop which was on the other side Cataluna Plaza. Our hotel is about 10 steps off the plaza - Perfect location! The hotel was designed by Gaudi's teacher and has a very grand entrance! It has then been extended into next door also, so there is an old grand side and a more modern side. Our room is on the 3rd floor in the grand side! It overlooks the pool (where we are currently sat enjoying Tapas and Beer!) The weather is nice ...
