We landed at 9 am at Barcelona International Airport. Immigration was so quick, it was almost too good to be true - about 10 seconds per person compared to about 5 minutes in US. Soon we were out in Barcelona Sun, a much appreciated change from the Seattle rain. It was in low 20s (celsius, we are in Europe remember) so very pleasant.Eager to begin …
Arrived safely in the capital of Catalonia this morning after a nail biter for the previous 24 hours. Barcelona airport had been closed for two days due to the cloud of volcanic ash that drifted down from Iceland. No evidence of it on the ground but at the 20 to 30,000 foot level, it interferes with air travel.
Our hotel is very nice - …
... overpriced, and got on the metro. after looking at a map, we went a few stops away before getting off. Ahhh. a breath of fresh air. all locals, no maps out. We found a little cafe, plugged into the internet and got on lonely planet to see what we should do in Barcelona. Had a couple cafes and headed back to the metro. on the way, we passed a fruit stand so we bought a couple peaches and kept walking. They were delicious!
We were told to ...
... also a lovely place just to amble through on a warm, sunny March day.
Still left on my Barcelona bucket list? The Miró Museum, a hike up Tibidabo, a day trip to Girona, a drink at Las Arenas (converted bull fighting ring), a classical music concert at Palau de la Música Catalana, a tour of Casa Batlló and of course, a Barça soccer game! All that while ensuring I spent ample time at the beach before heading to rainy (but love-filled!) Dublin!

I'm staying in an old style apartment, equivalent to a six and a half. The building's elevator only holds five people at the most. There are two bathrooms - one with just a small tub, shower and sink, and another with a toilet and a very tiny, run- down sink in the corner ( which it at half an arm's length). To flush the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ayre Hotel Caspe Barcelona
Really nice hotel
Excellent hotel. Enjoyed our stay. Helpful staff, nice rooms and good location.
Awful. Badly located, nowhere near Plaza de Catalunya, it took me a lot longer than 15 minutes to walk, and the area has no character or bars/restaurants at all. The staff were rude (one lovely gentleman on reception to the point of offensive) and not at all willing to help with anything. A supposed 4 star hotel, they watched a young girl struggle down stairs with 3 suitcases without even offering to help!
The first impressions of the hotel was very modern, trendy and clean and was a great price for what our conformation said which included breakfast.
Where to start... in our 3 week trip to Spain, Hotel Fiesta Caspe stands out as the worst accomodation.
Wonderful modern hotel
stayed at fiesta caspe may 2004. Found it to be very modern and very clean. the staff were pleasant and helpful. The only down point was that in brochure it mentioned coffee making facilities in room..there were not any!!! however there are lots of coffee houses/ patisseries nearby..lovely. Well placed hotel for sight seeing and shopping. would stay here again.
