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....

... of sleep really put me in an annoyed and down mood to start this trip. I was trying to find a backup, but lots of places either didn't sound exciting or looked full. I was even 50% thinking about just going home and trying another time. After about 3 hours of research though, I finally decided to try Barcelona. The flight was pretty full but I was still able to get a seat! When the door closed, I booked my Airbnb accommodation right near the ...
... rides of the park were on the cliffs of the mountain. I didn’t go on any rides because falling off a cliff was not in my schedule, but I did take lots of pictures of the brave and/or stupid people having fun! There was a gorgeous view of all of Barcelona from the top of the mountain, including a view of the ocean beyond the city. We arrived around 8pm and left by 9:30, so we got to see the city in the daytime and the sunset. I was very happy with the ending to my ...
... and brick walls. Definitely a hit with the younger crowd. The location is decent being a block away from the metro and maybe 10-15 minute walk to the beach. The only downside is that the area has fewer cafes and shops. It should serve us well for the time we'll spend in Barcelona. Tonight we took the metro to a popular street, La Rambla. We caught a bite to eat at a pizzeria and there were no complaints from the fam. The pizza (toppings) ...
... bits from so hopefully I can do this tomorrow.It's such a lovely day I didn't want to waste anymore of the afternoon inside so when Alfred woke up we headed to the roof terrace with the football for a bit of a kick about and some sun. When we got there Alfred was more interested in the pebbles and bark filling up the flower beds but hey! Craig came home early and met us up there. It was a nice way to end the day. ...

A last "boat shower" - that's one thing I won't miss! Checking out was an efficient process, so we loaded our luggage into a taxi that had been reserved for 9:00 AM to take us to Narbonne. There were no tickets for the 10:30 train to Barcelona, so we had to wait for the 11:35 train. This was the last time I would be able to speak French, so I knew my "usefulness" was going ...
