... located in the old part of the city and surround by Barri Gothic buildings.
Towards the end of the promenade, we stopped for some last minute tapas and a refreshing beverage. Then it was time to catch the shuttle bus back to the ship.
Once we got back to ship, it was time to get ready to retire for the evening. Mum went out of deck to watch the city disappear in the distance.

... fallen in love with a 19 year old DJ and had proceeded to cyber stalk him all the way to Barcelona. And he was now very upset his DJ lover wasn't "returning his tweets". The crazy man aside, the night was excellent! We ended up in a group of around 12 people sitting outside in the garden enjoying the evening sun with a big meal and an acoustic guitar! The night then moved to a local park because we were being too loud! So essentially on my first real day in ...
... to the development of cubism and modern abstraction. The almost satirical work of The Dream and Lie of Franco shows Picasso's condemnation of Franco's dictatorship over Spain and Picasso said he would never enter Spain again so long as Franco was in charge. Over 4,000 of Picasso's 22,000 works of art are housed here in Barcelona. Formerly five 13th century Catalan palaces, the building itself is a stunning work of art.

We finished off our day walking along Las Ramblas, a huge touristy shopping street that more local streets (with amazing food) branch off of. Although it is really touristy—lined with those cheap tourist shops selling overpriced magnets and shot glasses—it has a lot of character, and many claim that you haven’t ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ayre Hotel Caspe Barcelona
Really nice hotel
Excellent hotel. Enjoyed our stay. Helpful staff, nice rooms and good location.
Awful. Watch out for "free" internet...
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!
Breakfast a waste of money and room service has about 4 choices of dish.
Internet supposed to be free but BEWARE! If you plug into the wrong socket (there are no explanations as to which socket to use) you may end up with a 150 euro bill like me. The staff of course were completely unwilling to help at all, and in fact were insulting and rude, demanding immediate payment although internet service was suppposed to be free.
All in all definitely one to avoid in my opinion.
Our stay at the Hotel Caspe
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.
The room was also excelent, again very clean and was very impressed the bathroom, it had two showers and a bath, the showers were powerfull and soothing.
We went to the hotel restaurant on our first morning, there was very little choice, very little hot food, when i choose to have some hot food, the scrambled eggs were dried up, the sausages were ok, the bacon was smoked, but it was not hot, it just managed to stay luke warm. Thank goodness we did not have evening meal there.
The hotel is 20 minutes walk from the center, but if you like walking it is a nice strole.
After the first morning we went to hotel reception, and double checked if breakfast was included, they told us NO, we got our conformation, the person on the desk took a photocopy, and told us, thats ok.
Everything were fine untill our last day, we stayed 3 days, the hotel insisted we pay 84 Euros for our breakfast, 2 each for 3 days, 14 Euros for each one, ( personally i would not of paid 3 Euros for the breakfast ) the said they called our agent, and its between us and the agent, so we argued the toss, just paid for our film that we had watched and they said they will try to sort it out, when we returned to the hotel we collect our bags, and got a taxi to the airport.
How many people does this hotel rip off using these tactics.
Also the day before we was due to depart we asked reception if we could keep our room untill 6PM, again we was told it was fine, the next day we checked at 2pm then we was told it was 50 Euros to keep the room for the few extra hours, they never told us when we asked the first time.
So to sum up the hotel, the rooms were excelent, the staff the chef, need to be replaced.
A Nightmare Hotel
Where to start... in our 3 week trip to Spain, Hotel Fiesta Caspe stands out as the worst accomodation.
The four nights we were scheduled to be in Barcelona turned out to be the World Finals of
Formula One Car Racing. Hotel rooms were scarce
and those that were available had doubled and even tripled their rates for this week end. It turned out to be a challenge to find comfortable accomodations at a reasonable rate... Scouring the Internet we discovered the Fiesta Caspe.
The hotel is brand new ( 2 months old during our stay in May 2004) and was therefore ( so I thought) offering very reasonable rates for that time period. They are listed as a four star hotel and the photographs looked as if it was a state of the art contemporary decor type of place. I would describe it more as a Holiday Inn with IKEA furniture.
When we arrived the King bed i had requested and
had been told would be available was all of a sudden not available in a non smoking room. Furthermore, I was told that my excellent rate did not guarantee me any kind of specific room. After
moving upstairs into our room which was not new but rather poorly refurbished with "contemporary"
furnishings ( closet doors rattled, the desk wobbled it was more like a college students attempt at furnishing a first apartment-- cheap,highly styled everything! The one thing i liked was that the bathroom had both a tub and stall shower... Needing a little refreshing, I jumped into the shower, only to flood the bathroom and part of the room... ( when I reported this to the front desk, the woman shrugged and said yes, she knew this was a problem, other people had told her....Hello??)
The hotel is not particularly well located but a good
10-15 minutes walk will put you in Catalunya plaza.
Night time was fun there too. Particularly if you enjoy listening to your neighbors....well you get the picture... unfortunately our neighbors were night owls and very energetic...when they finally did settle down we were able to get a much better idea of what all the noise in the hallway was about!!
The breakfast room ( breakfast was expensive 14 euro and not particularly appealing nor lavish) was about as appealing as an institutional cafeteria....
Actually the lobby and common areas all had an institutional feel. Cold and uninviting hotel, with
a staff to match.
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.
