Alice in Wonderland Hotel! ie minute rooms
When we checked into the hotel (which is in a great location) we went up to the room which was tiny especially for a 4 star. The tiny window also looked onto a concrete wall!! We eventually after much drama got moved to a slightly bigger room. When I say bigger I mean about 2 foot bigger! We were still looking onto the concrete wall which also faced other people's bedrooms and hence a lot of noise. The room service was ok but the hotels were also very hot and the air conditioning wasn't working. We stayed in April which is a cold month so shudder to think about the room temperature in summer. Only thing this hotel has to offer is location. It is certainly not a 4 star. p.s.And especially don't stay if you booked with Abbey Travel in Ireland as you will then definitely get the small room! (I did see other rooms in this hotel that were a lot bigger).
A super hotel!
Just got back with my family from Barceleona-and 4 nites at the Cristal Palace. Excellent experience; from the marvelous upgrade they gave us at no extra cost to the wonderful breakfasts., and the very central location. The staff were professional and helpful (they even managed to get us the right sized taxi for all of our luggage, when we left for the airport..which was greatly appreciated as we had been taking 2 taxis up till then.=an expensive situation) I recommend this hotel and believe it deserves all five stars!
We've stayed 4 nights, super service in room 911 for those who like to catch some sun after walking around in a beautiful city. A big terrace, very quiet room, everything like it should be in a 4* hotel. We'll be going back....

... bus headed East around the city. There were 16 planned stops on this bus so we picked out the ones we wanted to see most and waited for the bus to arrive at those stations. On the bus, they give you headphones to listen to facts about each of the attractions that they drive by. The first stop we chose to get off at was Park Guell; a park that sits atop the city. There was a really long line to get in, as spots needed to be reserved for ...

Sometimes the people appeared a bit surly, because they don't smile and say hello when they don't know you, but mostly they were really friendly once you started to talk to them. In parts of Spain and Portugal, a lot of people had very little English, a big difference to Italy, where pretty much everyone spoke it.
We were impressed with the transport systems, especially in Portugal and ...
place and order some more sangria and eat some tapas. We tried a thing called
cockles, my god they were awful we had one each and didn’t touch the plate
after one go. We go for some dessert churros and then we find a lounge doing
cheap mojitos and relax there watching video hits till we wander on home
gearing up for our early start on the first bus leg of our journey. Somewhere
along the way I lost my debit card in the midst of the excitement of the city.

... build the services for this estate - surrounding walls, guard houses and grand entrance leading up to the covered market/ballroom area, adjoining streets and walkways and a central square for meeting and mingling. Alas it was a failure - the wealthy wanted to stay in the city where they could see and be seen. Fortunately the city eventually purchased it as a park and it is now a major tourist attraction (definitely won't try and describe - just see photos). A ...
