... at me and said one word: Sí. With big smiles, I asked if I could please try them on. She turned away from me as if I’d asked
her to stab her grandmother in the eye with a hot poker. She returned, perhaps 20 minutes later, with three pairs of the ugliest shoes I’ve ever seen. In sizes that wouldn’t even almost fit me. Assuming I’d done something wrong, I apologized and asked her for estos zapatos en una talle 38. Again, came ...
... piece laid internally and externally is amazing. They predict that the building may never be finished. A gelato afterwards allowed us to recharge our batteries before our next walking path. Deciding Gaudi was our new idol we ventured to look at the facade of a couple more of his buildings, Casa Batlló and La Pedrera known also as Casa Milà. A full on day saw our weary bodies needing some R & R. Going back to the market ...
... how advanced in technology and culture they were comparing to how Japan was in the same era.
Next stop, Picasso museum. They apparently showcase mostly his early artworks. I LOVE Picasso's early works (and I don't really care for his later works and the whole cubism stuff, to be honest), so I was really looking forward to it. But, well...bad news. There was an unbelievably long queue, and unfortunately we couldn't wait for 2 hours in line where I ...
... from the 13th - 15th centuries. This museum is in El Born section of town, still the really old part of town next to the Gothic Bario. As we walked to the museum we looked down all sorts of really narrow twisty pedestrian alleys with shops and restaurants. We would have liked to explore some more, except that it was raining and windy, and we were tired and hungry.
... good, try this! BEWARE: IT IS NOT FOR THE FAINT HEARTED!
I was very excited about going to the Picasso Museum next, as he is my favourite artist. We couldn't find the Picasso Museum at first beccase the map we had didn't show the names of some of the streets. There was a couple who didn't know where the Picasso Museum was either, so they asked us. In the end, we found it ...

Historical Traveler Reviews H10 Raco Del Pi Barcelona
Trawled the internet to find a last minute deal for Barcelona and ended up at the Raco Del Pi a bit by default.
The Taxi driver said he couldn't drop us off at the hotel door as it was a pedestrian street but the hotel is just a short 5 minute walk.
After our "welcome" cava drink we were given our room. Placed on the top floor with a small window and a sky light wasn't a problem for us given all the other pluses to this hotel.
It was really centrally located the cathedral just 2 streets away and the nightlife a short stroll. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the atmosphere relaxed. If you are looking for a central hotel which is very comfortable and reasonably priced I don't think you can do much better!!
Shame about the showers
Well situated but plenty of problem with the showers which were barely warm. If you were late using them expect them to be cool. Fine in summer but not so nice in a cool February. Despite letting staff know and it being 'fixed' the temperature did not alter at all. It spoilt the stay. The first night we were moved to another hotel as there had been a leak in 'our' room so I believe they do have a boiler/heating/water problem.
This hotel is superbly located - less than five minutes walk from La Rambla and a Metro stop, and just around the corner from the Cathedral.
Fantastic location, fantastic staff
Went to Barcelona for a last minute Christmas break. The H10 Raco Del Pi is in the Gothic Quarter, without doubt the lovliest area of the city. It's a great hotel, lovely rooms (get one that faces the central courtyard if you can), quiet, and the desk staff are wonderful. They all speak perfect English, and are always happy to recommend (and book) restaurants etc. We were only there for 3 nights but felt like we could have stayed for weeks! (P.S. don't bother with Ramblas - it's good as a central point for getting your bearings, but far too touristy and expensive. Stick to the Gothic Quarter, explore the narrow streets and find all the beautiful little squares filled with friendly cafes, restaurants and quirky little shops!)
Good location and competent staff
On our arrival they gave us a small room on 4th floor. The day after we asked and obtained to move to a bigger room on the same floor. Seems like all the rooms on 4th floor have windows at the floor level.
There's a free internet access at the bar. The staff, especially Martin, was kind and competent.
Excellent hotel, central location, goods service, contemporary bedrooms and decent bathrooms. Good value for money.
By the end of our stay we loved this little hotel but we had some reservations initially. It is 2 blocks from the main road on a mainly pedestrian street. Our taxi driver would not or could not drive to the hotel and dropped us two blocks away. The area around the hotel in the Barri Gothic looked unsafe and unsavory. The very friendly and helpful staff assured us that is was safe. It turned out to be safe and a fantastic location of narrow winding streets with historic treasures around every corner. The hotel itself is small but architectually fasanating. We had two rooms, 1 was large 1 was smaller. They weren't the cleanest rooms we've had but were tolerable. A/C was fine when it got going. You need to leave the room key in a slot to work the electric which means you can't run the a/c when you're out of the room.
