Hotel El Castell
Travel Blogs from Sant Boi de Llobregat
Our first dinner at El Castel. You will note that our whole trip will revolve around food and wine...as it should be!
So from the El Prat Aeroport, we took the L77 bus to Sant Boi about a 25 min ride. And only 189 metres to the hotel...Up hill. Robin documented the "ascent" every few metres...
... We then headed back out to the bus area and after 15 minutes or so another bus came along. It cost us 6 euro each for the ride to Sitges. I was just about to fall asleep when we arrived at Sitges. From the bus stop there it was an easy walk to the B&B we had booked (less than a half a kilometre). The Pocket Earth app is coming in very handy again. It was a gorgeous hot day and this ...
Getting around Barcelona is so much easier than I thought it was going to be. Not physically easy ( a bloody big hill is still a bloody big hill ) but it seems that where I am staying is fairly central, and once I've walked the 15 minutes to the nearest metro, the whole of the city is only a few stops away. I had thought that the first place I had decided to visit, Park Guell, was miles away in the hills on the outskirts of the city. It turned out to be a 10 minute ...
... in Barcelona for 2-1/2 months already and was coming back from visiting her family, and super luckily her stop was the same as mine so I just figured I'd tag along with her for a while. I attempted Spanish on the first bus, asking the fare and they quickly corrected my 'cuanto cuesto' to 'cuanto cuesta' so I knew the correct term for the bus that which actually get me where I was going.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel El Castell Sant Boi de Llobregat
This place reminds me of my grandparents state in Mexico City. The view of the city is awesome; the building has a great history and dates back to 801! The service has been very good, our server Pablo has bent over backwards to deliver a couple of cold Moritz beers, antipasto platers with Manchego cheese, Iberic ham and Terra Nostra wine. Dinner later at the outdoor dinning room was Salmoralejo (Gazpacho), antipasto platter with cheese, prosciutto, endives, anchovies, etc. porc "old style" with peppers and tomatoes, and a fish platter with red peppercorns, fruit and vanilla ice cream for dessert. More of the Terra Nostra chilled tinto and two espressos cortados con leche! Very nice indeed!
