... br> So after checking-in at the homestay, it was a bit late for breakfast, but I did want something before lunch. The hosts prepared a list of recommendations on where to eat. I chose one bakery that was a 10-min walk away. I didn't choose something closer because I've walked around the entire area already. I went to Forn Mistral. Not sure what pastry to try, so I asked for a recommendation. Had a pastry with custard cream. It was nice, but a bit sweet for the first meal. I ...
... on our architecture day! It was a neat little village with a spectacular view looking out over Barcelona!!! We had dinner reservations @ La Font de Padres which served traditional Spanish food (Ethan had oxtail!!) and yummy sangria. Both were very enjoyable and the people watching was fun too. The highlights were rude tourists and photo bombs!
Finally - the much anticipated Magic Fountain!!! ...
On our second day in Barca we walked a lot around Barca, did some shopping, ate sme great food, saw some amazing buildings and a Picasso exhibition. I will blog this day in the usual detail tomorrow, I can't now because dad is telling me to get off the iPad and go to bed. I have posted some photos of yesterday and the Eiffel Tower, have a look. Goodnight. ( It's midnight over here!!) Hello, I've woken up now, its not midnight anymore!! The ...

Also, So many people speak Catalun (language of Catalunya) and its totally different from Spanish. It's difficult reading signs or trying to buy your metro ticket as you can't understand very much of it. I think I'm starting to adapt more.
I'm doing a side trip to Scotland this week. Europe has tons of cheap flights and you know what they say...."When in Spain, Go to Scotland." :)

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 España. 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.
