On our last day in Barcelona we visited Parc Guell, the most amazing, magical and inspired place I've ever been to! First of all, the view of the city from up there is breathtaking. Secondly, everything in Parc Guell is art, the steps, the halls, the buildings etc. We visited the famous dragon fountain, the great place, the colonnade and wondered …
The Montjuic hill is an amazing place, so we decided to spend the whole day here. First we visited the Miro museum. Joan Miro was an incredible artist and his art, paintings and sculptures really touched us. The Foundation Joan Miro is a museum everyone should visit, so as to get to know modernism at its higher level. Simply incredible!!! Next we …
First place we visited was Museu Picasso in El Born. This way we avoided the crowds and we enjoyed the paintings of Picasso literally on our own. The museum hosts paintings during the blue and pink period of creation of the artist. If its modernism and art you're looking for, Barcelona is the place!
The rest of the morning was dedicated to …
Our day started with a wonderful breakfast at our hotel. A long day of sight seeing was ahead of us, so we needed as much energy as possible. First stop at Passeig de Gracia Metro Station. Passeig de Gracia is one of the most stylish and artistic streets I've walked on. It's the street in which the famous architect Antony Gaudi was glorified! Gaudi …
We arrived at El Prat Barcelona's Airport at 10:30, recieved our luggage and took a taxi to our hotel Casanova by Rafael, in Grand via les Corts. Suprised to see that the room we booked was in fact a suite in the top floor of the hotel with a spacious bedroom, a living room with a 40'' LCD TV, 2 bathrooms and many more. Took a shower, an hour of …

Historical Traveler Reviews H10 Casanova Barcelona
Wir waren hier für ein paar Nächte Ende März. Das Hotel hatte eine recht schöne Lage, ca. 10 Minuten vom Plaza Catalunya, La Ramblas usw. entfernt. Bis zum Bahnhof Barcelona Sants waren es mit dem Taxi ca. 10 Minuten.
Exzellentes Hotel nah an der Las Ramblas
Das Hotel liegt an einer der Hauptstraßen Barecelonas. Die Adresse ist 559 Gran Via De Les Corts Catalanes (an der Ecke der Casanova Straße) und man geht von hier nur 10 Minuten zur Las Ramblas und zur Altstadt. Exzellentes, neiues Hotel, makellos, sehr hilfsbereite Angestellte, sehr gutes Frühstück (kontinentales und englisches), sichere Tiefgarage, gutes Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis (ausser der Internetzugang der 9 Euro pro Stunde kostet!). Sehr empfehlenswert.
Was toll war (wir waren 3 Tage hier): Die tolle Gaudi Sagrada Familia ( an U-Bahn Linie 2), ein Konzert in der Palau del Musica (in der Altstadt), die wunderschön von innen ist - würde es empfehlen wann immer hier ein Konzert ist.
Excellent hotel near Las Ramblas
The hotel is on one of the main roads into Barcelona, address 559 Gran Via De Les Corts Catalanes (junction with Casanova), and is about ten minutes walk to the start of Las Ramblas in the old town. Excellent new hotel, immaculate inside, very helpful staff, very good breakfast (continental & English), secure underground garage, reasonable value (except for Internet access which is €9 for one session for up to 1 hour!), recommend highly.
Highlights of our stay (3 nights): the amazing Gaudi Sagrada Familia (on underground line 2), and going to a concert at the Palau del Musica (in the old town) which is also just stunning inside - recomment you go to whatever concert is on.
My husband and I stayed here in February and had a fantastic time! The hotel is modern & clean. Our room was very nice and shower excellent. It was easy to walk to the square & las ramblas from the hotel. There was a very friendly barman who was very helpful and found us a map so that we could find our way around! He also recommended restaurants. I would definetly go back!
Green, very green...
We stayed here for a couple of nights at the end of March.
The hotel itself is fairly well placed and is about a 10 minute walk from Plaza Catalunya, La Ramblas etc, and is roughly a 10 minute taxi ride from Barcelona Sants railway station.
The hotel staff were very pleasant and helpful. However, the reception is the most green reception I have ever come across, so much so, that when returning to the hotel at night you can see a green glow at the end of the road.
Luckily, the "greenness" doesn't extend to the rooms, which are comfortable and very clean, and quite a good size. The only downside was a blocked sink, which was (sort of) fixed once we'd reported it. However, that didn't spoil our stay. All in all, a very pleasant stay.
My husband and I stayed in a double room with shared bathroom for 5 nights. Overall, this is a pretty nice place to stay, although the "B&B" name is a bit misleading. It's basically a shared apartment. The place is kept very clean and the staff is very nice and helpful. The rooms are decked out in IKEA linens and furnishings, and most have small balconies. Our mattress wasn't very comfortable, but for the price I am not sure you can expect better. The self-serve breakfast that is provided includes melba toast, green jam, cereal, tea, milk, juice, and nescafe. It was a bit disappointing, but again, for the price I am not sure you can expect much better. The location is great, in a neighborhood about a 20-30 minute walk from the Gothic Quarter (or a train ride and a few minute walk). Although I think there is room for improvement, I would stay there again, as it provides a nice balance of affordability, convenience, cleanliness, and comfort.
New, central, lovely hotel.
New hotel, quiet, very central so easy to walk everywhere. Friendly staff. Lovely restaurant. The most lime hotel I've ever seen! Definately recommended.
I have to agree with the first reviewer. The Casanova was a real bargain when we booked..Less than 500 Euros for 4 nights for a great room and one of the better breakfasts I've had in Europe in a long time...fantastic , fresh, baked goods as well as primo Spanish hams and cheeses....
We booked 3 nights pre-cruise at Apsis Splendide with another couple. On arrival they/AS announced that we could share a suite, or they would transport us to a nice new hotel nearby. The shared suite was pathetic and we were apprehensive about their alternative offer.
