... well kept (strong colors and patterned designs fill the old moat), and the 360 views are amazing! (although from this height you can also see the layer of smog that covers parts of the city). A trip down La Ramblas for some window shopping quickly turned into a great excuse for Tapas in the centre of town. After lunch we walked past the Columbus Monument, to the pier to a nearby shopping centre ...
5:00AM pick up at the hotel with 2 minibuses for our group of 11. Still raining! Our flight to Munich went on time with 2 hours to kill before our connection. This is an easy airport to get around in and is open and airy. Not like Frankfurt which is old and crowded. We left Munich a little late but the real problem was that they changed our routing to a longer one, rather than doing the circle route, we went straight across ...
... that was a fantastic adventure but has totally drained me. It’s not even 11 p.m. but I am totally zonked; I expect to crash soon after writing this blog post. Maybe it’s because I’m tired and a little cranky, but my first impressions of Epic are quite mediocre. I’m not enthralled with the design of my cabin and the public areas have been so far unimpressive.
Got up at 11:27 a.m. at the Hilton Barcelona. My first mission this morning was to find ...
... mix of apricot and peach at 4 euro per kilo - not as good as the strawberries, since it was not quite ripe yet.
Fourth Stop: Silken Gran Havana
It was finally that time to check-in to the hotel! Such a lovely surprise to receive a bottle of Cava from the hotel to celebrate our honeymoon!
Fifth Stop: Tapac 24, Diputacio 269

We land and walk off the plane onto the tarmac. I had ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Confortel Auditori Barcelona
We stayed at the Confortel for 3 nights in October and I would recommend it to anyone. We took the Aer Bus to Plaza Catalunya and walked with our wheelie bags and it was bit of a hike- but the metro is right there and if you like to walk- it's not bad getting anywhere in the city.
My husband and I came from israel and spent 5 nights in Barcelona, all at this great hotel. I asked my travel agent specificaly for this hotel after reading previous reviews and they were all right and very helpful.
Gill and John, Portsmouth, England. Our short stay in the Confortel Auditori Barcelona was one of the best breaks we have ever had. From the moment we stepped into the hotel the receptionist Suzanna could not have been more helpful or more cheerful, as were the rest of the staff. The hotel is so clean and modern. The free mini-bar was re-stocked daily with juice, cola and water which was much appreciated. Towels and bedding were always changed. The bed itself was so confortable so that after a day of sight seeing, getting into bed was a joy . It really is only a short stroll to the bus station and the metro but that said. walking to town was great, with so much to admire on the way. We cannot wait to go back and would highly recommend this wonderful hotel to anyone.
Wonderful affordable hotel
stayed in the confortel auditori in barcelona for a week at the beginig of august. it was beautifully decorated the room we had was spacious with a plasma screen satelite tv, safe in the room and free minibar. the hotel had free internet access in the lobby a gym and restraunt, there was a sunbathing area on the roof and a pool. close to the metro station and 15min walk to barcelona zoo and museums. only thing was eating in the hotel was very expensive but barceona is full of cheap places to eat so not that big a deal.
would definately stay again was great value for money!
Great hotel, great location, great facilities. This place has a lot going for it. It's a superior 3 star awaiting 4 star classification, so get it while it's hot! We based ourselves here for a week on our first ever visit to Barcelona, and this hotel was nothing short of perfect. Stylish and comfortable - we thought there was a mistake with the price, but seemingly it's always very, very reasonably priced. It's located in a very good area, between the Sagrada Familia and the Place De Catalunya and it's a 2 minute walk from 2 Metro stations (on different lines) and the overland train too. It's also right next door to a major bus and coach station, yet is very quiet and private. A short hop to the beach and surrounded by bars, restaurants, supermarkets and even a bakery next door which is ideal for grabbing a pastry whilst you ponder what to do with your day upon emerging from the hotel. I'd recommend it for business or pleasure - a real gem.
Fantastic Hotel - free mini-bar on arrival was a welcome addition, and was continually stocked up with water and fruit juices throughout the week. Another fridge in the shared lobby area on the first floor provided chilled bottles of water to guest for free.
If you like quaint, twee hotels then this particular hotel in the Chain will not be for you. If you prefer your hotels to be clean, new and full of modern design character then the Auditori cerainly will be .
+ two computers next to reception which provide free internet access
