It hasn't been all work as on my first weekend I managed to escape to Barcelona. It is such an awesome city with so much to see, although fairly pricey! I visited a few of Gaudi's famous designs such as La Sagrada Familia which is completely amazing and Park Guell, which was a fair trek to get to but the views were definitely worth it. I walked along La Rambla, a bustling street with lots of entertainment, restaurants and ...
Barcelona is truly an amazing city. We've now spent 7 days here and feel every day has offered a lot. The day trip to Montserrat monastery around 40 kms away was incredible and well worth the fairly expensive return trip fare. The highlight of Barcelona was the Sagrada familia, a cathedral designed by Gaudi and is still being built after his death in 1926. All of Gaudi's buildings appear in the tourist 'must see' list in ...
... Guell in 1900 as a project to design and develop a residential complex for 60 families as a utopian retreat which interacted with nature, away from the hustle and bustle of the city on the Pelada mountainside. Unfortunately due to the outbreak of WW 1, it never took off and it was eventually acquired by the Barcelona city Council and turned into a public park in 1922. There were street vendors everywhere, but they seemed to be part of an illusion show as I would see ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Catalonia Plaza Cataluna Barcelona
Good Value In The City Centre
Spent two nights here with my wife as a treat away from the kids.
Room was spacious and quiet (at the back of the hotel) despite close proximity to Placa de Catalunya. Staff were helpful, and deal offered as a walk-in was excellent (transferred from other, poor, hotel).
If you want to be near the main sites and access points without being kept awake by partying, then this definitely fits the bill.
Have just returned from a 4 night stay at the Duques de Bergara. We had a good sized twin room with a small wrought iron balcony overlooking the main street. It was very clean, light and airy.
We found the staff were very helpful and professional.
The hotel is in a quiet street about 100m from Catalunya Square and adjacent to a metro station. It is very well placed for both sightseeing and shopping.
We will be visiting Barcelona again and will definitely stay at this hotel..
A Very Poor Choice of Hotel
I returned last night from Barcelona having spent Christmas there. It was my first trip to the city and I loved it - but the experience was ruined by the hotel. It is NOT worth the money - there are much nicer hotels on the same street which cost thesame or even less.
Despite the guidebooks saying they have had a recent refurbishment, the lobby area was uninviting, the rooms dark and noisy and the breakfasts were the worst I have had in a long while - no freshly cooked eggs for example - just a tray of scrambled eggs sitting out for hours served on chipped and broken china. There was very poor lighting in the bathroom and old fashioned furniture. This is NOT the standard of a 4* hotel. Go somewhere else - this hotel does not deserve your custom.
Have just returned from spending 5 days in this hotel. We found all of the staff without exception to have been very friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and comfortable. The hotel location was excellent for both shopping and sightseeing. If we are in Barcelona again we would certainly use this hotel.
We stayed at The Duques de Bergara with another couple last weekend over the August Bank Holiday.
there was 12 of us girls on a hen weekend and we had the time of our lives we fought the hotel was great very clean and the staff friendly especially the bar man he looked after us we stayed for 3 nights just wished it was longer the only down full the pool was very shady did not matter the beach is only 5 mins in a cab we went 13 august
Not worth the money
We stayed at this hotel for four nights, and was promised airconditioning. The room was small, and we could not open the windows because our room looked right into another guest's hotel room. When we complained they simply shrugged their shoulders. AFter two days of complaining they switched us to another room. It was a hassle.
Barcelona is a fantastic city and we had a great time there! can't wait to return, however.....if you are considering this hotel I would advise you to go elsewhere. Firstly it very overpriced , considering what I paid I was expecting much more!. The food is terrible, breakfast urgh...... The staff were rude and unhelpful...... the entrance and lobby were impressive but the room small and claustrophoic. They tried to rip us off by saying we had completely emptied the minibar! - I kept a record (on provided sheet) of what we did have, a few soft drinks was all! - needless to say after big row we managed to pay what we owed and checked out before they tried to con us out of anything else!!!
Have Sangria by the Pool!
A friend and I stayed at the Duques for 4 nights and loved it! We found a last minute room rate of 99 Euros then called them directly and they gave us the same rate. The staff is pleasant and helpful, not superb and the rooms were very clean and spacious. The pool is an amazing plus to this property to take a quick swim on steamy summer afternoons away from the crowds and have a very inexpensive pitcher of sangria made fresh and served poolside at your command! We loved the place for our great rate and the pool, but when we tried to extend our stay, they were full of conventioneers and quoted us a rate double what we were paying, so book in advance or call them directly and haggle for the best rate you find online through their website (Hoteles Catalonia).
At first we were given a very small room with an en suite facility which was positively cramped and smelly. To cure the smell an air freshner spray was used. Obviously the effect of this did not last long. The balcony door would not lock. The safe was an additional 3.80 euros per night. Our second room was larger but to get this we had to give up a street view for one of buildings and rubbish. The facade of the building is great, as is the entrance and staircase, but you do not have to stay in the otherwise plain hotel to see these features. Overall our stay was mediocre and detracted from the holiday.
