... some other time. After some walk through the loud hustle and bustle of the market, and after getting an over-priced bag of bulk dry fruits/nuts (but they tasted amazing), we were done with the market.
Behind the market is Antic Hospital de la Santa Creu. Now it's serving as a national library, but it used to be the city's main hospital back in the 15th century. A beautiful Gothic building with pretty courtyard in the middle.
Now, it's THE ...
... in Barcelona - from the aquarium to the Cathedral to the shops on Les Rambles. It was a full few days and completely worth it! We had such an amazing time with Mimi and again, it was incredibly hard to say goodbye!
Luckily we returned back to La Rochelle with no delays, cancellations or broken trains. Thank goodness!
It was an amazing week, but I'm happy to be back in La Rochelle. Home sweet home for the semester :)
... smell. At the end we got a free cocktail and 2 shots of Bols liqueurs. My favourite was the natural yoghurt one, which can make a cheesecake cocktail! I bought some and have sent it home, so we shall see if the customs people like the look of it or not!
After Amsterdam we headed to London for the end of the tour. We stopped in Bruges on the way, but only for an hour. The main town square was pretty, and there were lots of chocolate shops! It reminded me of France, too. ...
... walk, our reservations fell thru and we attempted in numerous ways to find a hotel, got a ticket for being in a bus zone, our GPS wouldn't work downtown and I was 'done.' Poor kid had to put up with me until I fell into bed around 11:30, winning a hard-fought battle. Tomorrow will be a better day. Til then, enjoy our photos; Spain is lovely.

Comfortable and good sized room
Breakfast is good, but guests get poor coffee from the cheap machine while staff get their coffee from the proper one!
Location is not so good, being 25 minutes walk from the Sants Railway Station (for the airport and TVE trains) and 15 minutes to the nearest metro station.

Historical Traveler Reviews AB Viladomat Hotel Barcelona
Stayed at this hotel first week of June for a five day break.Booked hotel direct through their own web site as this was the best deal available!!! A quality hotel just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre but close enough to walk to main attractions or a ten minute walk to several metro stations.Airport shuttle bus stops 5 minutes up the road.Rooms very clean and spacious with large tiled bathrooms(good shower & plenty of hot water)Mini bar available at reasonable prices.Staff pleasant and helpful and all spoke good english. Hotel will hold your luggage for you after checking out if you have late flights.
Stayed her for 4 nights at the end of April 2004. Very good location and very modern and comfortable accomodation throughout. Would have no hesitation to recommend this hotel to friends and would stay here again. Picked this hotel from previous comments made on Trip Advisor by other satisfied customers !!
Comfortable and economic hotel
A great value for what it offers: a clean room with modern bathroom. Excellent buffet breakfast, though at a charge of 12 euros per person. The only thing to keep in mind is that staff is not eager and, perhaps, not sufficiently informed, to answer questions regarding restaurants, places to visit, etc. Maybe their limited command of English is a factor. Although several blocks from the nearest underground station, Barcelona is a walking city and it never posed a problem. On the whole, a nice place to stay at a most reasonable rate.
We stayed in this lovely hotel for 3 nights in April 2004. We reserved online in advance. Location was excellent, 20 minutes walk from La Rambla, and 10 minutes walk from the major train station of Barcelona -- which helped us a lot when we got in by airplane and got out by train. We got a good corner room which was very quiet. Room and bathroom were very clean, TV had CNN. Note about the hotel staff: some were friendly and helpful, some were totally non-friendly; For example, when we asked them about the exact time of the BullFight, the guy was very friendly and looked it up in the local newspaper for us (the answer is Sundays at 6 pm, by the way). However, when we asked another female receptionist about a train schedule to the Dali museum, she simply refused to help us (while the info was available to her on the Internet easily); and when we asked whether the Dali museum is open on Mondays, again, she made absolutely no effort to find out (the answer is No, by the way), and in both cases we had to drag our (tired) feet to an Internet cafe and look up the info ourselves (it took us 2 minutes to find the answers online). Bottom line: hotel is very good, but some of the staff are not very cooperative. Having said that, I would stay there again and recommend to friends.
We were extremly surprise by the way they treat us. Is such a charming Hotel , full of details and incredible atmosphere. The first time we arrived at AB Viladomat Hotel I feel like home. The receptionist was waiting for us with a huge smile.After doing the check in he congratulate us for our weeding and give us a Room with Terrace ( excellent views ). What my surprise when we arrived at this marvellous wooden floor , marble bathroom I saw a bootle of champagne and fruits.... The concierge was extremly carefull in all the details and help us in all our needs ( Excursions , Rent a Car , Restaurants....
This hotel helped to make our stay in Barcelona fantastic! Friendly staff that helped a lot when reserving restaurants, tourist bus, flamenco show, etc .. they had all what you needed. Rooms have all what you need and really appreciated the early morning free coffee service.
This hotel was situated in an excellent location - not too far away from a tube train, the staff were very friendly and the room was very clean. Overall an excellent stay and good value for money for the price paid! 10/10
We stayed in the hotel for 4 nights at the end of Feb 2004 and it was a really nice hotel. Our room was lovely, marble bathroom, wooden floors, good wardrobe space and good heating and air conditioning is needed.
The hotel is in a good spot - not directly in the centre of the city but within easy walking distance of all the sites. Staff were very friendly and the hotel was spotless. Will definitely go back.
Stayed here October 2003, very nice hotel situated in business area about 20 mins walk from main city centre. Hotel is very modern, rooms were very nice and very clean and friendly staff, would definately stay here again.
My wife and I stay here 2 nights. The hotel is fairly new and our room was great. Service was also very good. We had a great internet special rate which made it a bargin. Will stay there again.
