... as the last one was off, we got on. No lag time. no cleaning time. like a military operation. This is a low cost airline so i guess maximizing efficiency is in the cards. When we got on it was kind of weird, too. no pockets on the back of the seats in front of us (i deduced that without seats, there was no way to hide trash. no hidden trash = next customer doesn't feel like the seat is dirty) and they were trying to sell ...

... circle with the statue of Christopher Columbus, Spain’s historic favorite son. We traveled to the waterfront past the World Trade Center, numerous sculptures and statues, under the tram that reached from the waterfront to the top of the hill with historic fort buildings.

Also on top of the hill is the Olympic Village built for the 1992 summer Olympics. The Olympic pool is now open to the public with a few days designated ...

Both still feeling under the weather and with the impending doom of minus degree days fast approaching we knew we were in trouble if we couldn't shake this cold! So with that taken into consideration we decided to split our walking tour over two days instead of one. With the plan to cover the East side of Barcelona , including the sights of Sagrada Familia and La Pedrera. However to put barcelona into ...

... us biltong! As a grand finale, the opera singer insisted we go to a fountain-show. This turned out to be a giant fountain 'dancing' to Disney, Pop and Classical music with a few thousand people watching. We grabbed a good seat on some stairs, unpacked our bread, cheese, strawberries & chocolate picnic and watched the spectacle in awe. We thought it was very aptly named 'The magical fountain'. Barcelona, evidently first impression aren't everything. Definitely redeemed. ...

Finally I think I like Barcelona!

... here, gone is the noise... Trees, a fountain, places to sit in the shadow, relax. Lovely!

Under the big stairs, a huge chess game! I joined the spectators up the stairs, to get a good view below of the game. A new game just started, a Spanish middle aged man and a young blond shy looking woman, who was maybe shy but not stupid at all... she did here moves very carefully, listened politely to the ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Crowne Plaza Barcelona - Fira Center

    Wow, well worth the money

    from

    Afer several months of research for the perfect hotel for my husband and my vaction, I banked on the reviews of Tripadvisor.com. I am very glad we did. The Fira was perfect. It was clean, convient, a taxi hub, had a pool a work out area with classes everyday, an oversized room (even for Florida standards), fully stocked bathroom with bathtub and shower as well as an another shower stall with a multihead jets. The metro was a 5 minute walk. The plaza was the best in Barcelona with a nightly light and music fountain show. Very romantic.

    I looked into several other hotels and later came across them in our travels, our choice was the best. Everything on Las Ramblas was a joke.

    Great location. Huge rooms.

    from

    Despite what the website says, our room was not soundproof. I was awakened by a baby crying at 4am. Also, there is a schoolyard directly in front. So plan your siesta after 3pm on weekdays. Other then that, the hotel was awesome. Huge room has a big bed, writing table, couch with coffee table. The bathroom has a fantastic shower with 3 shower heads. It also has a bath with a shower. Dual sinks with enough counter space for all my stuff and seperate room with toilet. The hotel is in a great location. We walked mostly but if you need a cab, it costs about 3-4euros from the hotel to the train station...cabs are right outside the hotel and Sundays are more expensive.

    Couldn't find a better hotel

    from

    This hotel was perfect! The staff was helpful, the rooms were very large (American large). The bathroom was large enough for 2 people to share at the same time. We asked for an upgrade and they had one and cheerfully gave it to us. The breakfast was a buffet and very good. It was in an excellent location (10-15 minute walk from the Espanyola metro station). It was good to be in a quiet location after being in the noisy city all day. Taxis were always available in front of the hotel. Would recommend this hotel to anyone going to Barcelona and would definitely stay there again!

    Fabulous hotel and superb location!!!!

    from

    I agree completely with all of the reviews. This hotel is fabulous with huge rooms and the location is walking distance from EVERYTHING (bring your sneakers!!!) I would definnitely recommend this hotel and it will be my hotel of choice whenver I am in Barcelona. Also the rates are great!!! I got the best deal on expedia.

    Great location to explore from

    from

    I found this hotel very comfortable and an ideal place from which to explore Barca. The staff are quite friendly and very proficient in English. The room itself was very large and quite sufficient for the two of us. Central Barca (Placa Catalunya) is just 3 metro stops away from Placa Espanya - a 10min stroll from Hotel. I work out regularly and found their gym among the best ive ever seen - very good facilities for the fit folks.

    One point though, room service is a bit pricey for what you actually get.

    Other than that, I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting this amazing city.

    Great for a family

    from

    We stayed by the week of Valentines Day, 2004.The hotel is huge with a lot of amenities. It offers free stay for the kids under 12 (maximum 4), which is not common in European hotels. The rooms have double queen beds with plenty space for the family with beautiful bathroom. Located in a quit and a convenience location. All Montjuic attractions are in walking distance, nice walk to "plaza Espana". A lot of "tapa" places around. The buffet breakfast is served in a pleasant restaurant and all staff is friendly and courteous. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a modern hotel in the admirable city of Barcelona.

    Comfortable, convenient - great base for exploring Barcelona

    from

    We stayed here in Jan 04. As advertised, the rooms are very large, quite comfortable, and clean; we also used the sofabed, and there was still plenty of space. The bathrooms had separate shower and toilet compartments. The wireless internet worked well.

    Loved this place

    from

    I was there for a convention and loved this place. Loved the fact that it had two showers in case you are sharing the room. The room itself is great, nice and big. The location is good, it is in Plaza Espaņa. Close drive to las ramblas. If I go back, I would definetly stay there.

    Highly recommended

    from

    Small entrance leading into large, cool lobby with quiet piped music.

    Pleasant, friendly Reception staff. My standard room (Expedia bargain!) had 2 double beds, sofa, writing desk, comfortable chairs, TV, good air-con/blackout curtains/soundprooofing. Bathroom had 2 washbasins, bath/shower, plus separate shower and toilet cubicles, and more towels than I own!

    Everything spotlessly clean.Breakfast good value and excellent quality.

    Espanya metro station 6-7 min. walk, but bus #55 stops just across the road and takes 10 min. to the main Placa de Catalunya and the Ramblas.

    I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

    Quiet & Relaxing

    from

    My husband and I stayed here 31-Jan-03 for 2 nights. Simple, BIG, clean rooms with impressive bathrooms. Staff were helpful. Quiet, safe area. 3 minute stroll to the metro Espanya. Right next to Mont Juic. Would stay again.
