Entering the world of cherries

... the food was good although so big. My plan was to have dessert at Escribe (for those of you who are master chef lovers, this was the sweets place they visited in Barcelona on the penultimate episode), which was also on La Rambla, but I wasn't sure I could fit it in after my meal. However, my new American friends insisted on taking me there for a birthday treat and very kindly bought me a creme brűlÚe. It was so creamy and smooth, ...

... that has more money than I can fathom. How I walked into this I honestly have no idea. I want to say this family is royalty, but I don't think that is the right word. I think they are just people of influence in the city, and I use influence lightly in this sentence, what I really mean, is they have HEAVY influence in this city. ANYWAYYY, my experiences this far into my journey have been amazing. I've only been here a week but feel like it's been ...

... fossils with stalactites and stalacmites hanging beneath them, buildings with turrets and odd shaped windows, gates shaped like butterflies or a field of spikey thistles. Everywhere the multicoloured mosaics or bricks covered with sand to look like raw textured earth. For brevity sake, and yes I am very mindful of how verbose I can be, I will simply describe the bench – a 110meter long bench that snakes in an winding arch and overlooks the park and the city of ...

... people. As, I entered further into the park, I sat in different areas just to take it all in. I had some fruit from day before, which I ate. And, there I met a group of travelers from, of all places, New Jersey/New York. Three sisters all traveling together with their husbands...all bickering. I giggled, and one of the husbands turned and made a sarcastic remark toward one of the wives... he looked "done"! I laughed and asked where were they from... one ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Catalonia Born Barcelona

    Very nice hotel

    from

    The hotel is clean and the staff are very friendly and polite. The buffet breakfast was BRILLIANT! It was included in the price of the room when we stayed. They did ham, eggs etc. everything!

    The rooms are a little small but the bathroom is very nice. The shower cubicle is big and the bathroom has a marble floor.

    The location of the hotel is also very good. Its within walking distance of all the attractions. The rail station is a 2 min walk away so it is easy to get to the hotel from the airport.

    This hotel is recommended.

    Great accomodation!

    from

    I stayed in this hotel for 5 nights, it was a great find. Excellent breakfast and services, friendly staff, reasonable room rates. And it is in a great location, within easy walking distance to many restaurants and tourist sights. I would choose this place again.

    Good value.

    from

    We spent 4 nights here and everything was as we excepted. Relatively cheap, clean hotel within walking distance from many interesting tourist attractions and only few minutes to metro. Nice and helpfull staff. Good breakfast.

    Walking from Barri Gothic to the hotel can be scary at night because of the narrow and dark alleys, but we had any problems with that. (you can walk via main streets if you want...)

    We would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a cheap and clean hotel.

    Not so Great Outside but Great Inside

    from

    My husband and I stayed there for 2 nights before going on a Mediterranean cruise. From the outside the area looks a bit run down but the hotel is modern and clean inside. The rooms are a bit small but its adequate and the bathroom was quite new and well appropriated. The breakfast buffet is good and we just walked every where. I wouldn't walk in the inside streets at night but I would definitely stay there again.

    Its not 5 star but for the price, its a very good hotel.

    Excellent Hotel

    from

    Very clean Hotel with helpful friendly staff. Situated in an area which seems to be both residential and commercial with loads of small interesting shops selling just about everything. Very close to Arc de Triomf station (200 mtrs). Area looks a bit run down on approach but the hotel is very modern. Rooms a bit on the small side but clean and adequate. Nice bathrooms with good showers/baths. Very well placed for walking to La Rambla, Place de Cataluyna and loads of other places. Breakfast buffet is superb. Tends to be bit of noise in early morning (around 0600 hrs) when local businesses put out their bins and put up the shutters of their shops. Also seems to be a local habit around this time to converse with your neighbour in as loud a voice as possible!

    Good for the price

    from

    If you are put in a room at the back of the hotel be aware you will be woken every night at 3 am by the gabage truck collecting refuse, ask for a room at the front of the hotel. Hotel menu very small eat out. Apart from the afore mentioned hotel clean and comfortable.

    Good location

    from

    Stayed here April 2003. Appreciated the 20 minutes direct from airport to metro/train station Arc de Triunfa just across the street. Room was good, breakfast excellent and hotel is very near for Gothic quarter, Ramblas etc

    Nice location but room small and dark

    from

    Stayed here in July 2003 and the location was perfect - just round the corner to Arc de Triomphe and within walking distance of some great eating places. I had a fabulous time in Barcelona and fell in love with the place would tell everyone to visit this fabulous city. However, our room was small and dark. There wasn't really room to swing a cat and we had a tiny little window on a lower floor that looked out into an enclosed dark area. Thankfully we were that enchanted with Barca that we didn't spend much time in the room. I felt claustrophobic in this teeny-tiny room!

    Great breakfast!

    from

    Nice, clean, spacious rooms, a little out the way though. Friendly staff who helped us out when our on-line booking was mishandled!

    Nice Hotel, Nice People

    from

    I was concerned about booking a hotel here due to the lack of information and pictures that existed on the place. The inside of the hotel was very nice & modern. The hotel staff spoke very good English and were of tremendous help to us. The room itself was on the small side, but the bathroom had two showers with very hot water. The hotel itself is on a street called REC Comtal, not Comtal, so it is farther away than we were hoping for. The neighborhood felt safe during the day, but was a bit sketchy at night. A little further away from things than I wanted to be, but the walk to the beach and the touristy sites is doable. Overall a nice experience & would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to get away from the noise of Las Ramblas - as long as you're willing to spring 3 or 4 Euros for the cab ride back late at night. Also relatively close to the Metro.
