... Resurrection leaning against the altar. I was really glad to see the Byzantine side of the Church taking hold in Barcelona. I am still awed by the beauty and history of these churches, and it is amazing that there are so many so close to each other.
Well it is time for me to go to bed. I can't wait to get to Rome tomorrow, but I am sad to leave Barcelona. Keep the Sisters of the Sacred Heart in your prayers for they have been so kind to me. I will post again soon!
... it was the culture that developed thanks to these fairs that allowed for Barcelona to be what it is today.
One of the big things that stuck with the world fairs was the artistic culture of Barcelona. During the time of the world fairs was when the modernist and typical style of Catalan architecture was in full bloom, especially with Gaudi. Thanks to the world fairs and the success this had there, this style continues to be ...
... we were exhausted from the flight and travelling from the earlier part of the day, we decided it be best that we had an early dinner. We stopped by Cafe Gaudi, swayed by their promises of authentic paella (incidentally, not a Catalan dish but rather Spanish). My verdict? Very good Paella- a recommendation if you are hankering for it. Night would soon arrive and we retired early to face the day to come- la Sagrada Familia was our goal for following day..
... end to an amazing artist.
We finished our two hour tour of east Barcelona and headed back to the ship. The kids were tired and so were we. We all agreed that the two day hop-on hop-off bus ticket was exceptional value and the easiest way to see the Barcelona with kids.
Our wonderful visit to this great city was topped off by a magnificent sunset as we sailed to our next exciting ...
So I'm writing this even though I was in Barcelona over a month ago.. I've been very slack..you'd think I was on holiday or something! Barcelona is a very cool city, with so much to do, so I was pretty pleased I'd scheduled in a week to stay here compared to my usual few days to cram everything in. Upon arriving I was reunited with Jordan, and what a difference travelling with someone you know makes. I've always been pretty set on the idea to travel on my own, and while it does have ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel SB Icaria Barcelona
We stayed for 5 nights at this hotel in May 2005. The hotel staff greeted us as we arrived and were very helpful throughout our stay, offering us advice on places to see and the best way to get there. Our room was on the top floor, it was spotlessly clean, very spacious and modern with great views of Barcelona and was amazing for the 89euro a night we paid. The hotel is located 5 minutes in a taxi from Las Ramble costing approx 5 euro. The beach is about a 10-minute walk. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and would definitely come back to this Hotel again.
Great place for the price!
We stayed at the hotel for 4 days while in Barcelona. The hotel is very cute and modern. Great size bathrooms, and very modern furniture. It's also in a great location as far as walking to restaurants, Port Olympic, and there is a bus station outside the hotel.
There are a few recommendations I have the first is very, very important: Don't order a hamburger from the restaurant or for room se rvice. They charge you ALOT and if you are American you will not like the beef they use. You can feel the tendons while you chew and it tastes horrible. Try to get a room as high as possible due to the street noise. Room service will be stingy with the towels so you may have to request more.
Overall, a good place for the price. We payed $125.00 American dollars per night.
Classy, modern Hotel
The Icaria is a very shiny, modern hotel within 5 minutes walk of Port Olimpic and 25 minutes walk of La Ramblas, but it is in a peaceful location, one block away from the beach front.
Staff are attentive and speak good English. Rooms are large and ultra modern, with wide-screen TVs, hifi, and very spacious bathrooms.
Free high-speed internet is provided. (I view high-speed internet as almost as important as a bed in my room these days!)
I stayed for a 2 day business trip, but I would imagine that the Icaria would make a great base for tourists that don't want to actually stay in the noisy melee of La Ramblas, but want easy access to the beach and tourist areas.
The Icaria is certainly the nicest Hotel that I have used in Barcelona over the past year.
Good hotel an staff.
New modern hotel, good sized rooms, large beds and clean. Breakfast - good variety from fruit, cereal, meats and cooked items. Friendly and helpful staff who can speak English. Quiet location, for trips into Central Barcelona use Bus Turistic, stop is a couple of blocks away, short cut via Shopping Mall to the right of the front of the hotel. Stop is under the two tallest blocks in Barcelona. 30 minute walk into the La Rambla along the sea front, a pleasant walk which can then take you into the main areas.
Great Base to explore Barcelona
We spent 4 great nights in Barcelona. The hotel is 10 minutes walk from the Metro station. The breakfast had a good variety of dishes, (cereals to meats). The staff were very helpfull. Hotel is quiet a night, but still a short walk to busy Port Olympic and 30 minute walk to Port Vell. Loved the Old Town tapas bars, well worth a visit. Beautiful city, hope to visit again.
As soon as this hotel gets the little issues worked out, it will be a flawless place to stay.
I have just returned from a weekend in Barcelona.This hotel is superb, in a great location(for walk into Las Rablas or Getting the Metro) Staff were more than friendly. I would stay here again on my next visit. Very close to the bars and restaurants of the Marina and the Casino.
Hotel was very good value.
As a Scot and an honourary Yorkshire woman, I couldn't miss the chance of staying in a brand new 4 star hotel on a '5 nights for the price of 4' deal with Superbreaks!
A great new hotel
We spent three very enjoyable days in Barcelona (from 15 Jan 2005), staying at this brand new 4 star hotel. The Icaria is situated in a quiet residential area in the Olympic Village . It is only about a five minute walk to the very lively Olympic Port, with a wide selection of bars and restaurants. Central Barcelona is a 20 to 30 minute walk. The rooms are very nice with large comfortable beds and well equiped bathroom.
The staff are very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast buffet is excellent
