... different guys were talking to me and I felt like they were all over me. I guess it┤s just part of the culture and I realized a Spanish lady I met was doing the same thing. One of the guys kept putting his arm around me and I kept taking it off. Ha, they probably thought I was a little strange but it really caught me off guard.
I decided to head to Madrid next and found a really cheap ...
... with a street festival in the area of gracia. The festival is called la fiesta de gracia, And basically it's an excuse for people to party in the streets for a week. It's crazy and took us back to our Pamplona days. Man can the Spanish party!! As part of the festival each street decorates to a certain theme and they all compete against each other. by the extensive decorations everywhere i can tell they take this very seriously! so when you see photos of weird bits and pieces in ...
... The church is all in the gothic style of architecture. You really need to look at the outsides more than once because there is just so much detail that you don't see on the first look. Gaudi spent a lot of time outside amongst the nature as a child so most of the theme is set around fruit, trees, flowers, animals and even shells. The minute details that you can only really see when you stare at it are fascinating. You can tell which bits are new obviously through the colour ...
... 8217;s creations. This one has a ceramic-speckled fašade and dragon-like rooftop and was quite fun to look at. The house next door combined several different types of architecture including Moorish-style designs and Gothic-style gargoyles and bay windows as well as the step-gable roof which was influenced by the connection to the Low Countries. A few doors down from that was another building with a mix of styles including Greek, Gothic and Moorish influences. We quite ...

At breakfast I accidentally bit my tongue (awful) and then later on in the evening it swelled up and I had to talk with a lisp! Team that with my two ulcers and my mouth is a mine of pain :( Anyway, I'm gagging for a deep girly chat so good night! Tomorrow we're off to Barcelona stadium. Yay football... :( ;) Good ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Catalonia Barcelona Plaza Hotel
Great Hotel - Great Location
Just arrived back from this hotel. I have always found this site helpful in the past so when I was taking my girlfriend to Barcelona for xmas I looked for good reviews. I wasnt let down. This hotel is superb. Great spacious rooms, excellent friendly staff and plenty to eat @ breakfast. The fast & efficient Metro system stops literaly outside the hotel and is four stops from Placa de Catelonia (where its all at) Taxi from Las Ramblas = 6euro/ Airport 26euro. The Airbus again stops outside and is 4euros to the airport. I'll stop going on, but i hope this helps. I'd recommend this hotel to young/old......anyone and everyone. Enjoy!
We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of July, and had a large triple room for the 3 of us (11 year old son). I had checked the Tripadvisor reviews carefully before choosing a hotel, and chose this one because it had a rooftop pool, and sounded as if a triple room would be larger here than in the older central hotels.
We stayed at this huge hotel for 10 nights in June 2005. It seemed to cater for large parties, including schools, sports teams and business trips and it was exceptionally busy while we were there. The bedrooms are small but very clean and well equipped with satellite TV, hairdryer, minibar etc. There was maid service twice a day and all of the staff were eager to help. The snacks served in the bar/ cafeteria are good value and the Piano Bar is a lovely oasis of calm. The rooftop pool area is small, with around 30 sun loungers which didn't seem to be enough for the 300+ rooms. We found that the pool and terrace area was quiet throughout the day but got really busy from around 5pm when the school trips etc returned and it all got a bit rowdy.
I'll be back again next year
excellent hotel! excellent location! excellent breakfast!
i cant think of a bad word to say about this immaculately kept hotel! the staff were friendly and on hand at all hours of the day!
the metro is literally less than a minutes walk away from the hotel so you can wake up in the morning, have a shower(which is very powerful, unlike a lot of hotels i have stayed in in the past) stroll down to breakfast, which is a variety of pastries, cooked breakfast, cold meat, cereal and fruit and then be on your way for a lovely day out seeing all of the sites in the town. if you want to go for a drink in the local area close to the hotel, i would recommend Club Ibiza, the staff are friendly and you will have a good night! i will be back next year.
I've just got back from a Business Studies school trip to Barcelona. We stayed at Barcelona Plaza & i have to say it was really good. It had an amazing location, with the Metro on the doorstep, literally. There were bus stops gallore within a short vacinity. The view from the front of the hotel and the rooftop swimming pool were spectacular, you could see the magic fountain & the Palace; along with the rest of Barcelona.
It is classed as a 4* hotel (not 3*) as this website suggests. It is exactly what i'd expect from a 4*. I'd reccommend staying here to anyone going to Barcelona in the future.
The hotel is in a great location. First stop off from the A1 airport bus, next to a subway stop and next to a Barcelona Tourism bus.
The only problem is that the room smelled of smoke. Turning on the A/C didn't help so we left the window open most evenings.
Although the hotel is next to a major intersection the rooms are insulated for sound extremely well.
Exceptional staff - friendly and courteous. If I were to grade the hotel it's about a 3.5 star hotel. Rooms were very clean, it's the smoke in the air that bothered us.
Great Hotel at a Great Price
I travel to Barcelona 4 or 5 times a year, always stay at the Plaza. Highly Recommended.
Fantastic Value Sept 04
We stayed here for four nights and found all the facilities to be of the highest quality.
Although not in the centre of the city there is a metro station outside the front door and you can get to anywhere in the city wihin minutes.
Breakfast buffet was excellent and we had an evening meal in the bar on one occasion which we found very good value.
All in all an excellent hotel which I would have no hesitation in recommending to anyone
Absolutely Loved it!!!
I would absolutely recommend anyone and everyone to stay at this hotel. The hotels area is amazing and is in the center of everythig. The staff is nice and the hotel has everything you need to acomodate anyone.
