... for 2 days as he has been unable to find a cork screw. All of the bottles of wine still have corks over here. We are quite impressed. Berlin, like Australia mostly has screw lids these days. It's been ages since I have opened a bottle of wine which has a cork inside it. And because of this, neither of us had a cork screw, or remembered to ask for one when we passed a restaurant. This was not going to stop Paul. He decided that the cork would come out whether or not he had a cork ...
... center in Placa Cataluna. A good place to take care of museum and transportation passes. The next block took us to La Rambla, a beautiful, tree lined street in the heart of the old city. Galleries, shops, and museums that attract everybody - and best of all the most amazing covered market La Bom oqueria. If it is grown, raised, fished, etc., you'll find it here, this market met ...

... en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sagrada_F am%25C3%25ADlia). The line was around the corner, but about an hour waiting (and 28 euros) we got in and decided it definitely was worth the wait for the magnificent site inside!!! So different from the other massive churches we have toured!! it was brighter, the stained glass was more colorful and despite the fact that it began construction in the late 1800's, it seems modern.

... and headed to the beach of Barceloneta to rest awhile.
Barcelona's beach was full of people, many tourists, topless girls and Arabic people selling everything from scarfs to beer and mojitos. We rested there until about 15.20 and then went back to the Plaza Real, for another tour leaving at 16.00. We arrived right on time and started the tour with a girl from US Virgin Islands, it was the Gaudi tour.
We started the tour in the same Square where the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Fira Palace Barcelona
Wow, well worth the money
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.
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
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!!!!
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
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
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.
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
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.
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
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.
