... red - a particular vintage which deserved the term " bull's blood'.
Sadly, we have to leave this city of beautiful buildings, beaches and sunshine after such as short stay. Our overall impression of Barcelona was very positive. Clean, calm, friendly and kind people, comfortable, beautiful setting . We must come back.
But, alas, the Camino calls. Tomorrow we head inland to Astorga, to start our biking adventure. More to follow.

... was someone on my tours birthday and a few of us had brought tickets to see a dj, Afro jack at a local club. So after dinner we headed to a club near by for drinks and waited there until about 1am then headed to see the dj. When we go there the line was really long but Alex pulled some strings and got us in a VIP line and straight into the club. It was a massive club and was jam packed with people, we waited and waited for Afro jack who was meant to come on at 2, by 315 he ...
... sun - it has this perfect jewel-like sparkle that just looks amazing! And yes we did stop at Macdonalds for a lunch break (this was around 11am) and so glad we did as we didn't arrive back to the hotel until 3pm-ish. Ah and Macdonalds was another sight to see! They had these automatic order machines, similar to a self checkout at Coles and Kmart; you put your order through, edit and add to your order at any time you like, then pay with your ...
... in common with NYC – it does not sleep. Our second day in Barcelona was kick started by exploring another massive and beautiful park called Parc de La Ciutadella – a haven for runners and picnickers. This was followed by exploration of the gothic region, where I managed to score a free postcard from a shop owner woohoo, and where we also seen our first and luckily our only mugging in Spain. We met up ...
... train that came in, and quickly realized we were heading outside the city and were definitely going the wrong way. We got off and sat on a bench, really in the middle of no where, and practiced our Spanish until the correct train came and took us to our hostel. Italian and Spanish are so similar so being in Italian class has really made me forget Spanish. The street where our hostel was, Passaig de gracias, was a very popular area. Parallel to La Rambla, it had many many ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Catalonia Born Barcelona
Very nice hotel
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.
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.
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
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.
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
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.
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
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!
Nice, clean, spacious rooms, a little out the way though. Friendly staff who helped us out when our on-line booking was mishandled!
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.
