I can hear the ocean breaking on the shore, I can feel the humidity in the air, the sun beating down and an ice cold beer is in my hand. Deep breath in....and exhale... God I've missed this. To make our stay even sweeter, we've met up with our wanderlust friends, Ashley and Dusty, and can't wait to share the next few days with them in beautiful Barcelona.
There is a good vibe about ...
An early start on Monday morning leaving the hotel at 6am. Richard woke up at 4am as he thought the cathedral gave one too many gongs for 4 o'clock. He was worried that Spain had changed to daylight saving on the 1st of June so checked it online at 4am. It actually changed in April so now we know why it is still dark at 7am and light at 10.30pm.
So of course all three alarms went off at 5.30 and we quickly dressed and headed off to the railway station. We had ...
... its gardens and a few buildings within designed by the great architect. We took in the fantastic views over the city from a lookout and had a lunch of baguette, ham and cheese (accompanied by my Spanish red wine of course) in the gardens. Though we didn’t fancy getting the entry ticket we peeked into the mosaic-decorated pavilion and towers in the lower part of the park before descending the hill and catching the metro back towards the city ...
Up at the appointed time to go to Sagrada Familia which opened at 900am. There was already a queue at 8.30 but it was not very long. We were one of the first groups to gain entry and it was quite empty, which made it even more breathtaking. The scale is amazing on the outside, but I was unprepared for the scale on the inside. It soars to the roof with huge pillars that really do look like ancient enormous pale tree trunks (which is what he modeled them ...

From there Wito and I took a bus to Plaza Espa˝a, Wita did not come with us, she went to do some last shopping to do and to the hotel. The bus route took us in front of Pueblo espa˝ol, a replica of several Spanish cities and regions built for a world exhibit many years ago and also by the Olympic Stadium and Olympic complex.Then to the hotel and dinner at a small neighborhood little Plaza Gracia and to ...

Historical Traveler Reviews HCC Open Hotel Barcelona
The hotel is very good. Modern, spacious air-conditioned rooms, immaculately clean, located at a stone's throw from a metro station and within walking distance to the city centre. I would say that at 85 euros I paid the value-for-money ratio was very good and I would definitely stay there again. Please note that they also have a wi-fi zone at the reception area which you can use for free (it is not mentioned on their site).
Good hotel a bit off the beaten track
My husband and I stayed in this hotel at the end of June 05. Our room was great, a good size with air-conditioning and en-suite bathroom.
The staff were friendly and gave us helpful tourist advice.
Whilst the hotel is centrally located it was a good 20 minutes walk to the Ramblas and being 5 months pregnant I would have preferred somewhere a bit closer.
The metro was nearby and there were a couple of good tapas bars close to the hotel.
Great Hotel in a Great City
My wife and I stayed at the HCC Open for three nights in May 2005, and absolutely loved it.
It is in a great location, 2 mins from the metro station (Rocafort on the Red Line) 10 mins walk from the airport bus stop at Placa Espanya, and 10 mins walk to Las Ramblas
The HCC Open is a good priced hotel and deserves a better star rating the room was a good size and very clean. We had breakfast included in the price, and could not fault it with plenty of choice.
We would highly recommend this hotel for your stay in Barcelona, and I am sure we will return.
Very Good !
We stayed for a long weekend in Feb / 05 as part of a group of 25.. Hotel is spotlessly clean, the rooms are spacious although rooms at the back of the hotel have a view of a brick wall !! The Hotel is modern with all facilities you need. You can walk to the Ramblas in about 15 mins, the metro is only 2 minutes away.. There is no Restaraunt in the hotel but there are a few small Tapas bars and Restaraunts close by which are good.
Breakfasts are plentiful and good quality.
Absolutely loved this hotel.It had a great location,close to Las Ramblas,and 2 mins from nearest tube station.It was a quiet and very clean hotel.The staff were very friendly.
This was a huge surprise for me and my mates,as we got such a good last minute deal,so we were expecting something pretty bad,and it was the complete opposite!
Would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Barcelona!
Great Hotel !
Modern clean hotel, friendly staff, comfortable room, good breakfast. Only 1 km from La Rambla. Would certainly stay there again.
Arrived at HCC Open...quiet and off the beaten path. Bus stop was a half block behind the hotel. We were only 8 blocks from Las Rambla..easy walking. My brother-in-law stayed at the Regente which is located on the northern part of Las Rambla. He paid $250 a night and when we went to see his room, it was exactly like ours, except the bathroom was about a foot bigger. The staff at the hotel were very friendly and spoke pretty good English. I wouldn't recommend the breakfast..14 Euro per person, and not like the good old bacon and eggs.. We ate at a small cafe down the road and paid 3 or 4 Euro for bacon and eggs and french fries. Delicious! The hotel was imaculate and I was so glad we found it on Trip Advisor. The picture of the room on the internet is exactly the room we got. Can't go wrong!
This hotel was great! The price was quite cheap, close to a metro stop, and the room is very clean. I would highly recommend this hotel for your stay in Barcelona. In addition, they provide free ADSL internet access in the room.
I just returned from the Hotel Open last night. Very nice hotel. Just opened last month (April 04) so the place was spotless. Very modern facilities. Very nice staff. At first, I found the place a little out of the way for me, especially if you want to go back and forth during the day to your hotel. But then I really started to like the location because a couple of days is about all I could take of the La Ramblas area, and I was glad I didn't stay there. More quiet and a lot cheaper restaurants around the Hotel Open.
Great hotel not very far from Plaša Catalunya. You can even walk on very nice days all the way from the hotel down to La Ramblas! (it would be a 30min walk) there are stores along the way as you go towards the university of barcelona.... so you won't feel it's a long walk cause you'd be shopping along the way.
The hotel is pretty new so it was very clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. It's a 5-10min walk from the subway station-either Urgell and Rocafort . There are a lot of little restaurants around the area. A great cheap restaurant with excellent food is just right across the street. L'escargot. Great food! Overall the hotel was worth going with a reasonable price. I would definately go back.
