Day 1 - Tuesday. We wandered around the area this morning just to get our bearings and check it all out. We passed by an incredible food market, which was without doubt the most impressive I have seen, just an explosion of colour, everything so fresh, and even the fish don't smell fishy, and sweet stalls containing all sorts of lollies I haven't …
... by the time we arrived it was dark. We struggled with getting into the Aires but managed it, found some where to park, had our dinner and then started to watch a DVD. We could hear cars pulling up and voices, then music but did not think anything about it as we thought it was kids. Was we in for a surprise when we finished watching the DVD and I had a look outside there was a building which was a Disco and there was lots of people going ...
... the upper part of the Rambla de Catalunya. Took a spin in the El Corte Ingles, then went home to chill for a hour. I walked a whole lot already. Headed back out this time to Barceloneta. Found some locals. You can tell you're in a non-touristy residential area when clothes are allowed to be hung from the balcony! Really liked walking through there. Went back to near my living area tried 2 tasty looking pastries. Couldn't eat it all, and I knew that too, but ...
... a beer and meal before heading to the base of the palace to watch the fountain display set to lights and music. Day one in Barcelona done, and we headed to bed exhausted, finally sleeping comfortably on a normal mattress, that didn’t take a ladder to climb into.
The following day, after a quick check on Larz to make sure he was still ok, we headed out on the tourist bus to take in the sights ...
... to share. It was great to catch up with Modesto and were told that Xavier would be there the next night. We made two new friends - Pau from Trujillo, Peru (the heart of Peruvian horse country) and Ismael - from Turkey. Sagrada Familia - surprise - surprise - is still under construction - although we did notice the new work.
We had plotted out a couple of new areas to discover and a few days prior to our departure when at a party for our ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Arc La Rambla Barcelona
Situated right on La Rambla in the heart of the tourist area, 50 meters from Drassanes Metro station, 2 minutes walk from the Port Vell maritime complex and a 15 minute stroll from the beach.
Just got back from a weekend at the Hotel De L'Arc with a stag party. Excellent location for this kind of bash (though it has to be said that although there were 18 of us we didn't generate one complaint about noise - I don't know how well they would react to a bunch of idiots staying there) or for a few lads away for the weekend, but would not want to take my girlfriend there.
Exactly What We Wanted
Spent a few nights in the hotel de larc at the end of january 2005. The hotel situated at the bottom of the Ramblas, was perfect for our needs. We got a very reasonable price from Travleocity and our room was very clean and spacious (huge Bathroom) and its location meant everywhere was in walking distance. I dont think we got a taxi once.
The only downside was that some prostitues hung around the front of the hotel late at night. However, the hotel porter was always close at hand to let us in.
All in all if you can get a good deal go for it. Cheap, clean and right on the Ramblas! Its Superb value for money.
we stayed at the de l'arc in barcelona before xmas 2003 and it was fantastic. we payed a ridiculously cheap price for it and was pleasantly surprised. it is right in the centre of the ramblas and our room was comfortable and well equipped it had a balcony looking onto the hub of activity and that was fantastic. at night it was not noisy either as i expected. the location was fab there is a strip club next door which did not bother us at all but may not suit those with families. it also has a small bar which is very nice and you could not be closer to anything. we have since recommendec it to friends who stayed there and if you are looking for good accomodation at a fraction of the cost this is an ideal choice
Good value hotel
My husband and I have just returned from this hotel after a 3 night stay. It is in an excellent position on La Rambla, close to Gothic quarter, marina, beaches, metro etc. We had a room with a balcony, the room itself was very clean and warm. Floor was marble, so take some slippers as the floor is cold. Friendly staff. Overall, hotel is excellent value for money. We will definitely return.
Very nice place
Right in the middle of las ramblas. It's clean and quiet. been there 5 days, no complains. If you want a place to sleep, right in the center of the city, this is a good place to be.
This hotel is in a great place on la rambla for seeing all the sights. metro and open top bus within 5 mins walk. Clean and well kept good breakfast and reasonable rates.
Great hotel in a great location.
Great hotel in a great location. Rooms are clean although invest in the air con. Breakfast was excellent. Short walk to Metro, Las Ramblas market which we felt was a must see, harbour and the old quarter. Will visit again.
After an unpleasant experience at the Pelayo a couple of miles up the road, De Larc Hotel come as a pleasant suprise. Very clean with good size rooms and bathroom. Staff very welcoming in both hotel & bar restaurant. Ideal location looking onto La Rambla in the heart of the City. 2 min walk from Metro and within walking distance from the nearby beach and harbour. We would recommend and we would visit again.
Fantastic location, right at the heart of Barcelona. The bedrooms and bathrooms were clean if a little dated. The hotel was only rated as a 1/2 star, but was definitely worth the (cheap) price. Would stay here again.
