... recorded on the other side of Spain and a description of all aims of the research done at the IC3.
I have read the field lab evaluations of the students and have started to grade their reports and am glad to say most of them enjoyed the visit as much as I did. And more importantly were able to see the connection between the experiments and the work done at IC3 and their classes onboard the MV ...
... top lounge. Nolan's thoughts on the day.....too much walking but did like getting to the hotel and chilling in the roof top terrace. Nolan also likes the open windows and balcony in the room. Overall, Nolan rates the day a solid 5.9 out of 10. Evan's reflections include the old Spanish architecture as well as frozen yogurt after dinner. Beyond that, he was speechless and rated the day a solid 7.4. Mom is too tied to ...
... to try our luck complaining to someone else.. AND THEY LET US FLY THEM FOR FREE! So after saving $400 dollars we were even more pumped to be starting the greatest trip of our lives. We took a 2 hour nap on the plane and then landed at 9am local time, the same time as our third amigo, Jake. Just absolutely insane that we are on our own in a foreign country with only our bikes.
Our bikes are in boxes and not ...
So we left the apartment at around 9pm. In a Vancouver standard, it's awfully late for dinner, but apparently, that's the Spanish way. One step out the apartment building, and oh yeah, we could immediately see that it's "happening". :) Lots of people (mostly young people) going towards the metro station. There was even a small concert (of terrible punk/hard rock with a few "gentle" head-bangers :P) happening at a local square. Interesting to ...

That evening we packed, ate the food in our fridge and rested our tired bums on the couch to enjoy some Tosh.O (ha!) with some vino. After a good night sleep we were off to the airport. Italy here we ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Ciutat de Barcelona
Die Lage gefiel uns sehr
Was uns am besten an diesem Hotel gefiel, war die Lage. Barcelona ist recht klein, sodass viele Attraktionen in der Nähe und zu Fuß erreichbar sind. Allerdings war diese Gegend gerade weit genug von den Touristenmengen entfernt, aber in direkter Nähe einer coolen, modernen und jungen Gegend.
Das Zimmer selbst war klein, aber sauber. Das Badezimmer war viel kleiner als von uns gewollt und das Bett war hart wie Stein. Auch die Wände waren sehr dünn, da wir viel Verkehr aus dem Flur hörten. Der Internettanschluss war spitze, was im Vergleich zu einigen unserer anderen Spanienreisen selten vorkommt. Das Personal war hilfsbereit, aber niemand half uns mit unsern Taschen.
Loved the location
What we loved most about this hotel was it's location. Barcelona is relatively small so many sights are close and within walking distance. However, this area was just far enough away from the tourist crowds but very close to a very cool, trendy, young neighborhood. The room itself was small but very clean. The bathrooom was much smaller than we wanted and the bed was hard as a rock. Also, the walls were pretty thin as we heard much hallway traffic. The internet access was great, which is rare compared to some of our other stays in Spain. The staff was helpful, but no one to help with your bags.
Looked brand new inside, clean, convenient, classy. Great Internet/computer functions available and FREE bottled water.
A few minutes walk from the nearest Metro, the waterfront, the Gothic area, the markets and La Rambla. Stacks of eateries nearby.
Contemporary hotel, clean and fresh. Great location near the gothic area. Friendly staff. 5 minute walk from the train station.
Great Hotel, Perfect Location
For the price, this hotel went above and beyond my expectations. The location is perfect-- in the heart of the old city and el borne. The rooms are clean, stylish, and quiet. The staff is very helpful and happy. There are free internet computers and the bed is very very comfortable. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
We booked this hotel for a 2 night stay prior to a cruise. Having made the reservation back in Feb., we were able to get an incredible price of 56 euros per night. We had 2 rooms. One was a smoking room with a king size bed overlooking the courtyard. I was told that outside conversations could be heard with the window open. The other room was huge. It faced the street, had 2 twin beds and 4 balconies (3 in the room and 1 in the bathroom). Both rooms were exceptionally clean, modern, and quite comfortable. The front desk staff were extremely helpful (we arrived at 9:00 a.m. and were able to check in right away for 1 room and had the other available in about an hour). We ate breakfast in the restaurant and would say that it was just o.k. As we wanted to do a lot of sightseeing, it was fast and convenient. We also had dinner at the restaurant 1 night and it was fantastic! The food was superb, the service great and the price was very reasonable. The location of the hotel is great, just a short walk to the touristic bus, las ramblas, etc.
The reception staff couldn't have been be more charming and the bedroom and bathroom were fine -- clean, attractively decorated and modern. But there was a downside. First, our bedroom looked out over an inner courtyard and we picked up every damned word from a couple of noisy women in the next room who seemed incapable of speaking at low volume. Second, the breakfast service was a disgrace. Sulky bad-tempered staff, no tea bags for two days, long queues for the sole self-service coffee machine, day-old bread, orange juice and bread rolls that kept running out etc etc.
The hotel is in a perfect location. It is in El Born near the Picasso Museum. It is new and the service was excellent. The decor is very simple (IKEA) and there aren't many amenities, e.g. no iron, no cd player, no tissues. There is only 1 English language tv station (CNN). However, for the price, it is an excellent value. The front rooms have some street noise, but the back rooms have no windows. The rooftop pool is very small, but it does the trick. Stay here if you are on a budget and value simple cleanliness.
This hotel really worth the try!!! Brand new hotel in the center of the Borne neighborhood one of the trendiest places in Barcelona.
Rooms are nice and well decorated, beds comfortable, breakfast ok.
Staff extremely nice, except for this rude guy at reception who was traiting everybody as he was saving their lives. Best of them was the italian guy and the young girl who were super nice with us.
Try the place!!! We´ll, be back again
I booked this hotel only because I got a special deal, 56 euros per night plus tax. When I booked in February, the hotel was scheduled to open in March. Sure enough, when I arrived, there were builders everywhere working on the restaurant, terrace/pool, and even the entrance.
