... architecture. The quirky designs of Guadi sprinkled throughout the city had us intrigued. However it was the Gothic Quarter that was the highlight of the city for us.
Strolling along Las Rambles with the masses, it was so nice to slip off into the narrow little laneways of the Gothic Quarter. This area was filled to the brim with charm offering uber cool tapas bars, restaurants and quirky little shops. The architecture was captivating and we simply couldn’t get enough ...
... open serving tapas and pintxos. We spent the evening going from bar to bar having little goodies at each place never seeing the same thing twice except stripes. a whole party of French were wearing blue and white striped clothes, all slightly different but all with a nautical look, think Waldo but blue. Maybe they had a yacht in the harbour or maybe just liked stripes.
We planned on watching the America Ghana game but there were very few bars open so ...
Camp Nou... Now, this was the raison d'etre for our visit to Barcelona.- coming here and not visiting Camp Nou is like going to Rome and not visiting the Vatican - sorry for this tired refrain... We took a train we thought was going to the "Nou region" and were fascinated by the efficiency of the service. No wonder, I thought, F.C. Barcelona has sold out crowds in all of its games. While we enjoyed the ride, we begun to notice, as ...
We left Carcassonne in light drizzle heading for Limoux where Adam spent 3-4 months in 2006 with the Bike NZ development squad. Quite a pretty place but the one good photographic opportunity in the centre of town was blocked by a huge parked truck. Mind you we didn't actually stop! The town is considerably bigger than we thought it would be.
We had just filled up with diesel and despite climbing to 500 metres over one Col, the Citroen ...
... it's like stepping into another world and the exterior of the building is unlike any other. A few quirky and bizarre projects of Gaudi appear throughout the city and are very prominent as seen in Park GŁell, which was originally created in 1900 as a residential project with nature playing a prominent role. The project failed but the park remains with only two houses that you can now tour and a house that Gaudi himself lived in ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Eurostars Cristal Palace Barcelona
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....
