... like they all are on the streets at the same time. We rented a flat from a private party on one of the websites. The apartment is ideally located on Rambala de Catalunya about two blocks from Catalunya Plaza and one block from Gracia Pl. We were early so hauled our luggage to the street cafe, ordered a mediocre Paella and waited for an hour.

Our flat is on the sixth floor of one of the thousands of ...

A Ramblas Ramblin Day in Barcelona

... market in Barcelona dates from 1217, when tables were installed near the old city gate to sell meat. From December 1470 onwards, a pig market was held at this site; at this time it was known as Mercat Bornet. Later, until 1794, it was known simply as Mercat de la Palla, or straw market. In the beginning, the market was not enclosed and had no official status, being regarded simply as an extension of the Plaça Nova market, which extended to the Plaça del Pi.

Later, ...

Another great day in Barcelona!

... on. Just a shame I didn't have the video going! All jokes aside, the big fella is a little battered and bruised but no serious injury was sustained to him or the Segway.

We walked through El Born, visited La Boqueria in St Jaume and headed off to Parc Ciutadella after the tour. Enjoyed a Magnum and lay on the grass. Very relaxing.

Enjoyed another siesta before going to Tickets for dinner. I had to book this 2 months ago ...

Day 16 - Oberta Beach and Cheeks 30th

A travel blog entry by paulkalo on Aug 17, 2013

Unfortunately we just missed out on the tour we had planned for snorkeling and kayaking on Costa Brava as this had booked out the previous evening, but we hopped on the train and (after navigating the rail system) made our way to Oberta beach. The train ride was awesome, and as the tracks were directly on the esplanade, we were treated to the incredible view of the coast, with the beach littered with people along ...

... like the Sagrada Familia, Casa Mila and other houses around the centre of Barcelona, however I wasn't able to go to Park Güell by foot or the beach, so for the first time in my stay in Spain, I had to use transport. When I started making my way towards Park Güell, which was in a sort of rough area, I realized how lazy Latins are. In order to get to Park Güell which is in the top of a mountain, you had the option to go by stairs, which were loads or go by escalator, I found this ...

    A place to sleep

    The entrance, greeting, and transport of our suitcases to our rooms were satisfactory. We were required to help with security, as bags had gone missing in the past while the porters were unloading buses so it was in our interests to do this.

    Our room was a good size and everything has been satisfactory with the exception that the room stank of smoke. By opening the windows and upping the air conditioning, things improved but it has taken a day to clear the cigarette smell. Additional pillows were required and received promptly.

    Other members have indicated that there have been animals in their rooms but I understand this is not unusual. All in all - aside from the smell of cigarettes - things have gone well. Of special mention are the Continental breakfasts, which have been above average with a chef making omelettes and cooking bacon on request. I would use this hotel again but on condition of a smoke free room .

    Good hotel in residential area

    Hotel room was spacious and clean. Staff helpful and courteous although English a bit limited. Free wifi worked well. 2min easy walk from Clot metro station or train from the airport. Interesting residential area. Check out Parc de Clot as a great example of urban renewal and an extensive market avenue for local food, etc. About 15min walk to Sagrada.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Catalonia Sagrada Familia Barcelona

    Nice little hotel

    from

    Nice little hotel. good tube and rail connections from Clot station.

    even walked back from town centre one afternoon via the cathederal. The room was small but clean and quadruple glazed onto the main road. I am sure there are nicer hotels in town but not for 40 quid for the room per night. Did get done for 2X breakfasts on checking out which they claimed were not included!! but it was only 20 euro's. I would recomend it to a friend and go back myself.

    Ideal for short trips

    from

    We were booked into this hotel "cold" by Ryanair and then read a couple of the bad reviews on this site. BUT, we found the Hotel great. The rooms, although not overlarge, were adequate, clean and well equipped.

    The staff were friendly and helpful with free town guide and advice.

    Breakfast was superb. The Metro at Clot takes you to all places of interest in the city for 1.10 euros (80p!). The hotel provides a secure, ticketed left luggage service on check-out day - ideal if you are on a late evening return flight. If flying from Girona use the train from Clot (6.35 euros) and the airport bus from Girona Stn (1.65 euros). We would definitely stay again.

    Great Value for money

    from

    Went to Barcelona for a break with three friends. Booked the Hotel on the Internet. It was a little out of the way but the metro is yards away and you go direct to the centre with no hassles. Although i did think the exterior street was a bit dissapointing, the Hotel itself was great. Rooms very clean, bathrooms spotless and like everyone else thought the breakfast was superb. Recommended the Hotel to friends who also enjoyed their stay and now am going back in a few months with my husband.

    Lock up your valuables, expect to be insulted

    from

    My girlfriend and I went to Barcelona for a couple of days. Having read of the problems with street-thieves in Barcelona, we decided to leave some of our valuables in our hotel room, safely locked in a suitcase.

    Imagine our distress when we returned from our sight-seeing to find the valuables (worth about £850) had been stolen. The door to the room was securely locked when we left and there was no sign of forced entry to the room, so we think that the cleaning staff stole the items. We can not prove this of course, but there is no other reasonable explanation.

    The story does not end there however. When we went to the front desk to notify them of the theft, the staff member said it was "impossible" that anything had been stolen from our room and that we must have lost it when we were out. I pointed out it may be possible that a staff member may have been responsible and she said that this was also impossible. She was extremely rude, insinuated that we were lying and only begrudingly called the police. I asked for the name of the person who cleaned our room and was refused. I asked to speak to the housekeeping manager, and was again refused, to be told that they were not in the hotel, and not in Barcelona. I found this particular staff-member's attitude absolutely disgraceful.

    Upon our return to London, I contacted the hotel chain's head office (Hoteles Catalones, whose motto is "Buenos Hoteles") with my complaint, only to be fobbed off. Although they said the matter had been investigated and the staff member dealt with internally, they refused to give details and offered no compensation. This leads me to believe that no action was taken which in my opinion is totally unacceptable. I would not recommend anyone stay at the Hotel Aragon Barcelona. I know I will not be staying there again, nor in any other Hoteles Catalones hotel. Buenos Hoteles? I don't think so.

    Irish user must have stayed at a different hotel!!!

    from

    The hotel is 2 minutes walk from Clot underground, which takes you to Catalunya Square in 5 minutes. Around the corner are a plethora of local boutiques, bars, and restaurants. The hotel is itself clean, bright and great value for money (less than £40 per ROOM per night incl the biggest freshest continental breakfast i've experienced for some time.) The evening meal we had was great value and of good quality. The staff were by far the most pleasant people we met in Catalan, as we found most Catalunyans could'nt speak English, French or Spanish allegedly, a bit like people in Newquay only speaking Cornish!!!

    Weekend from Hell

    from

    I booked a weekend break for myself and my mother to go over to Barcelona on a Saturday morning and return home on the following morning. I found this hotel on the Internet at a very reasonable price, as it was for one night only, I decided to book it. I was told it was within walking distance to the main shopping area..it was if you wanted to walk for an hour..there was no food served in the evening when we got back and on the way back to the hotel in the taxi he didn't know where it was because it was so far out..I was disgusted...the only good thing about this Hotel??, was the breakfast the next morning...it was lovely..toooo far out of the way and more like a hostel than a hotel....

    Pleasant surprise

    from

    Having heard from a rival tourrist bureau that this hotel was "awful", we were surprised to find a hotel excellent in all aspects though a bit far away from the centre. If we pay a return visit to Barcelona we shall certainly go to the Aragon again.

    Lucky or what!

    from

    Having read the review on the Adagio Hotel, thank God we didn't stay there. Instead we stayed 3 nights at the 3*Aragon Hotel, carrer d' arago just a few metres walk from Clot Metro line. The hotel was excellent, clean modern comfortable serving an outstanding breakfast with just about everything you could possibly want on the menu and more. Would definately stay there again and would highly reccommend it.

    Great, out of the way hotel

    from

    My wife and I spent 4 days in Barcelona in Oct, 2003. Reasonably priced hotels near Las Ramblas had no rooms for the time we were there. The Catalonia Aragon is a couple of short blocks from the Clot Metro and rail station. The breakfast was superior.

    Off the beaten path....

    from

    My daughter and I stayed here the last week of Jan of 2003. This hotel is way off the beaten path, a little run down, but the trains are only 2 blocks away and the Segrada is 4 blocks. Rooms small, nothing fancy. Great staff. The breakfast alone makes this place great. Was able to only eat two meals a day. Full spread. Our breakfast came with our room, so recommend that portion to get. Fresh baked pastries that you can smell throughtout the lobby. Great bang for your buck!
