Rundtur i fantastiske Barcelona

Paris er skøn, jah det er Rom også. I det selskab hører Barcelona også hjemme. Det fik vi selv lejlighed til at bekræfte, da vi havde sat dagen af til at udforske og nyde dagen. Vi havde købt billetter til rundtursbusserne, da de giver god mulighed for at stå af og stige på som det passer en. Bilen blev …

Even dull weather didn't harm this beautiful city.

What a beautiful City. We stayed just off Las Ramblas which is a long wide street for strolling down and watching the people. We walked its length and then on to the harbour and the beach.
Luck was on our side as the weather was overcast and hence a little cooler.

We walked back wandering through the Gothic area and visited the …

Do Streetview in the city center

There are not a lot of organized outdoor activities in Tarragona beyond strolling through the town, swimming at the beaches, and people watching in the plazas. One of the most beautiful parts of Tarragona is the old streets (Casc Antic), the ones near the cathedral, do not miss them.

There is a cultural agenda --The Tarragona 'Ajuntament' ie Town ...

Entering the world of cherries

... Barcelona is one of those places that is busy in the day but really comes alive at night. On my way back to the hostel I heard drums and decided to follow the sound, and ended up finding a lively drumming show in a tiny square. It was brilliant! When I had walked so much that my legs and feet felt like they would drop off, I relaxed on the beach in the sun. Barcelona is a very cool place with so much to see, one weekend just wasn't enought!

    Historical Traveler Reviews Catalonia Ramblas Barcelona

    Love the Ramblas

    from

    I stayed at the Ramblas during the second week of March and was more than happy with the hotel overall. The decor is phenomenal and allows for numerous meeting places if you are travelling with other people. The rooms are beautiful and very modern. There is a lot of space for two people to move around quite comfortably and the overall look and feel of the rooms is quite modern. I especially loved the washroom area. There was no bathtub in my room. Instead, there was a very large shower with not one but two shower heads. The water pressure was excellent and the towel heaters provided in the shower are a very nice touch. I had absolutely no trouble with staff and they seemed more than happy to accomodate and help us whenever possible. Definitly try the breakfast as it was delicious and there was a ton of choices for a typical European (not North American) breakfast.

    In the heart of the action

    from

    This modern hotel is steps from the Rambla, offering surprisingly quiet, comfortable rooms in the midst of lively Barcelona. You are convenient to tons of restaurants, bars, shops, etc. yet once you are inside the hotel, you would never know it! Rooms were quiet, decent-sized and clean, staff was quite friendly. The bathrooms were a bit strange - the shower was gigantic and had huge "downpour" showerheads - unfortunately the water pressure was not so good and the drains were slow, so it didn't quite live up to the looks.

    Would stay there again!

    from

    Just got back from an 8-day stay in Barcelona at the Catalonia Ramblas . Overall, a good experience. The rooms were spotlessly clean, and the staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast is fantastic--try to get a package which includes breakfast. Excellent location--just off La Ramblas, within a 2 minute walk of Metro Station. Although the area around the hotel is always EXTREMELY busy, the hotel itself was quiet, and we had no problems getting a good night's sleep. The bed was HUGE and comfortable. A few downsides--there is very little storage space for clothing, etc. as there is no dresser. The closet area is a bit small, and the hotel's hangers were huge and thick, so it was a bit difficult for 2 people to hang a week's worth of clothing. Tip-if you have a lot to hang, maybe bring a few of your own plastic hangers. Next time, I would. Ordered room service one night-hamburger and sandwich--and it was adequate--not great, but adequate. Delivered promptly, too. Had no problems with the bill on checkout--everything was clearly itemized and correct. We sent laundry and dry cleaning, and were STUNNED at how quickly the laundry was brought back. We dropped it off at reception at 8:30, and it was done perfectly and returned to our room by 11:00. However, on two occasions, I had put out the Do Not Disturb sign, and the laundry delivery staff knocked anyway. Weekend breakfast was quite busy. We were there for a business convention, and we will most likely stay in the Catalonia Ramblas during next year's convention.

    Peaceful haven in a very noisy city

    from

    We were initially staying at a different hotel just up the road from the Catalonia Ramblas but had to move due to the noise from the road and poor soundproofing. This is a problem in many of the city's hotels whatever the star rating.

    Bad value for money:great location rotten customer service

    from

    Was in barcelona for business and stayed there for 7 nights.

    Buen hotel, moderno y completo.

    from

    Estuve una sola noche, pero la impresión fue muy buena.

    El hotel dispone de un hall con bar muy cómodo y espacioso; la habitación completa y grande (tv de lcd, cafetera, parquet, muebles de diseño, baño muy grande y elegante), y el personal muy correcto.

    El único "pero" es que no dispone de internet wireless gratuito sino de pago (aunque pude pillar una red vecina abierta).

    Sin duda, para la gente que quiera un hotel céntrico, moderno y completo, es una muy buena elección.

    Bar the lack of advertised Sauna, a nice hotel

    from

    Well, it is a new hotel and advertised as a four star outside. It is certainly a sleek, clean, modern hotel and if you're not staying at the weekend (we were there Saturday through Tuesday) it is nice and relaxing. The rooms were fairly big and the windows were doubled so you could shut both frames to keep the noise out. Our room had a litte corridor to it's bathroom which seemed a little odd until we realised that this meant it had two doors so it was possible to keep the usual hotel bustle noise out in the morning.

    New hotel, still in the works, worst customer service

    from

    I've just returned from a trip to Spain in which I spent 5 nights at the Catalonia Ramblas Hotel in Barcelona. On one hand, the hotel is new and slick, with a modern and minimalist decor. The location is great: 2 blocks from Plaza Catalunia with a metro station just across the street. The breakfast buffet (included in my rate) was amazing. On the other hand, the staff at this hotel is unexperienced and borderline rude. Here's my experience: We arrived on a hot afternoon and after checking-in, went to our room and turned the air conditioning on. To our surprise, the room wouldn't get any cooler. We talked to the front desk on our way out and they said that they were working on some problems with the A/C. We returned that evening and before getting back into our room, we checked with the front desk on the A/C and they assured us that all problems had been fixed. However, after several minutes in our room, we noticed that the A/C was still not blowing cold air. We tried to call the front desk (since we were already in our pajamas) but we couldn't since there was no phone in our room! I got dressed and got down to the front desk to complain about the A/C. They looked surprised that the A/C wasn't working and sent someone to check it. After determining that it wasn't working the guy apologized arguing that it's a new hotel and they still have a number of issues that they're working on and they have no management on duty on weekends. I told hime that I didn't care, since I was paying full rate, not "beta testing" rate. They moved us to a new room (note that we had to re-pack our bags, get dressed, and move) with the promise that the A/C was working. To our surprise, the A/C wasn't working in the new room either. On top of things, after taking a shower, I found a pond of water coming our our front door! At this point we were so tired, and it was so late, that went to bed with no more complaints. The next morning I found out that the whole hotel had been without A/C! No one at the front desk ever apologized for this not offered to discount our rate for that "hot" night. The next day, the A/C was fixed, but we didn't have hot water! After another call to the front desk, they promised that they had just fixed this problem and that I should let the water run for a few minutes to get it hot. I did that, but after 20 min, the water was still cold. Another call to the front desk resulted in nothing. The other couple of days were uneventful. Finally, at check-out, I noticed that they were charging me for a bottle of water from the mini-bar that I hadn't drunk. It seems that the maid saw the empty bottle that we brought in from outside and thought that we had taken it from the mini-bar. After 5 minutes of arguing at the front dest for Euro2.5, the rude woman reluctantly decided to take it out of my bill. At that point, I noticed that they were charging me twice the arranged rate! When I complained again, she claimed (and was very adamant about it) that since we were 2 people, we should get charged twice the rate! At that point I was so outraged that I called for a manager. One came and saw the mistake. The woman didn't even apologize for trying to overcharge me. I paid my bill, but I swore I would never return to this hotel.
