Today was our first full day in Barcelona. After getting lost multiple times, we visited the Ramblas, old Barcelona, cathedral de Barcelona, Columbus monument, the harbor, Picasso museum, the City history museum, and we walked around the many streets of Barcelona. It's beautiful, interesting, and no one speaks English, but we're still having a …
... during the day to sightsee and chalk a few more locations off our list.
Since we landed in Spain, we hadn't had the pleasure of enjoying churros with chocolate. On the way to Barcelona Cathedral (Catedral de la Santa Cruz y Santa Eulalia) we came across a nondescript cafe on the side of one their main carriageways. It wasn't fancy- no big signs, no elaborate decor- just a small bar with a giant frying pan in the back. It did however, have amazing ...
... she wants me to come to DC to meet with the director of the foundation. Wow... I don't even know what to say. Vicki and Roger Sant are some of the biggest philanthropists in the country. He is Regent of the Smithsonian and she is the Director for the Natural Museum of History - among countless other ventures. Roger is the co-founder of Emeritus, the global power company. They are two of the most down-to-earth, warm people I have ever met. Then Fish ...
... a bit of wandering, we oriented ourselves with the map that wasn't accurate as far as cardinal directions go, and found Las Ramblas. Las Ramblas is the most important street in the city, lined with apartment buildings, museums, souvenir stores, and restaurants. It runs through the middle of the city, past the Barri Gotic, and down to the marina. We picked up a few souvenirs, or the other girls did. Brie got a Messi jersey for 25 euros, which ...
... stop on the tour was this architectural marvel. Gaudi was an Architect who had been commissioned by Barcelona's wealthiest to design and create fine buildings. After completing countless, Gaudi set upon work of his 'Masterpiece’ – Sagrada Familia – Being a huge multi steeple church/memorial to the holy family. The construction began in the late 1800’s but unfortunately Gaudi was run over by a tram (probably while day dreaming about his insane building) and ...

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.
