TravelPod Member ReviewsCity Park Pelayo Hotel Barcelona
Well let's be straight. The City Park hotel is a refreshing change to my rooming house I stayed in earlier in the week. The hotel room is small (average size for Barcelona standards). Cost $100-150 euros depending on the season. The room was clean, with nice hardwood floors. The bathroom is quite small and I would consider this a bathroom for one. The front desk is a little more friendlier than the usual professional and curt service I am accustomed to. The room has air conditioning (a big plus) and its own cafeteria. City park Pelai as it name implies is located off of main throughfare. I would have rated this hotel 4 stars if my air condltioning was working when I arrived.

Orio - Tapas and Sangria This is a fairly Upscale Resturant that is totally based on the honor system. Tapas are 1.95 euros a piece. Sangria was 3,90 euros and it was delicious. A little water down but for good reason. In my quest to do all things that are free in Barcelona, I decided to visit the Picasso museum. The Picasso museum is free on …
... that impressed me most, was the incredible modern architecture sometimes sitting alongside the old heritage buildings. Unlike back home where town planners stifle development of new buildings because they want to apply heritage codes. They really look after their old buildings but they and also embrace the new stuff. Lots of light rail everywhere - in some ways it makes me even angrier about the way the morons in Newcastle have curtailed development ...
... the scope of things.
We next went medieval, going to the cathedral, cloister and diocesan museum. It was quite good but I probably enjoyed it more than Daniel judging by our respective pace. The chapel of St Helen bore some original paint. I am not yet churched out on this trip but fair to say approaching that limit. The chapel of the Holy Sacrament struck me more than others.
The cloister was very reminiscent of that of Poblet ...
... steps for quite a little way. Sorry Bridget! On reflection now, the cathedral is hard to describe in a way that conveys its mesmerising beauty. I marvel not only how anyone can have the vision for such a structure but how indeed it was built. There was a display doing its best to answer such questions but still I marvel. We'll head back to the apartment area, which is located in the old centre of town, to soak up the vibe that is Barcelona. I have a ...
... us on the first night out, but we did a tapas bar crawl and drank copious amounts of vino tinto and cerveza and a long poured apple cider. We also ate lots of small fried fish, patatas bravas and other such delicious treats.
The crew of mischief makers were reunited the following night. Again, far too much was consumed. N and I stayed out way too late for having to travel the next day. But it was a super fun night.
Next stop Zaragoza.
