Thursday, November 27th, 2008 We woke up the next morning, which is technically our thanksgiving, in which they do not celebrate it in Espana. All of us went across the street to El Mos once more to get something as close as possible to our home-ade cinnamon buns, so I got this cinnamon type thing with a custard filing, mom got a apple pie type …
Wednesday, November 26th, 2008 We woke up early, at about nine am to get ready, showered and got ready for the day. However, it happened to be when Victor was returning home from the previous nights outing. I thought that he did not come home because I did not hear him in the middle of the night plus I forgot to mention the night before (Tuesday …
Tuesday, November 25th, 2008 We woke up the next morning, and then Vanessa and I went to star-bucks and I got a cinnamon donut with a custard filling and Vanessa got one that looked like apricot or something. However, when we went to star bucks they gave us a free tall coffee for us to get the next time we go, so we got ready and went back and then …
Monday, November 24th, 2008 In the morning, we woke up, we got coffee and then went shopping and basically just walked around everywhere, shopped in many stores.

Sunday, November 23rd, 2008 Once we all woke up the next morning, we all gathered our things, and went literally about 5 doors down to check into the Barcelona Centre.

Historical Traveler Reviews Barcelona Center Hotel
Excellent hotel! Excellent rooms... The staff went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed, including tour reservations, maps and recommendations around the city. We will definitely stay there again!!!
Our first two nights at the hotel were part of a tour package and the remaining three nights we were on our own. The hotel was ideally located, close to the Metro as well as many buses. Public spaces were comfortable and was pleasant to sit in them and talk to our fellow travelers.
This hotel is a couple of km's from the the Gothic area but within easy reach of it and all the other attractions due to the nearby Metro. It's easy to get to from the airport thanks to the mainline train that stops at Passeig De Gracia (4 stops from the airport) and which only costs 3-4 Euros. The rooms are very modern, clean, quiet and comfortable. Lots of black marble and modern floral displays. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly. The bar is reasonably priced and staff don't object to you taking part finished bottles of wine to your room. A real bonus is the close proximity to the Gaudi La Pedrera apartment block, which is worth going inside to see the roof and apartment. It's also close to his Casa Batilo. You can walk to the Sagrada Familia in about 30 mins. The breakfast bar is extensive and the fresh fruit paticularly good.
Loved the Hotel
Absolutely loved this hotel. Great Location, lovely rooms staff were very helpful as well. Breakfast was superb with lots of variety to choose from. Only downside (which is not a downside was that the channels on the tele - seemed to cater for the sport/football orientated but would definitely book this hotel again.
We wanted a hotel in the Eixample area with a carpark and
What a great place to stay in Barcelona! It's in the centre of town, but away from the noise and the cheap tourist beat. The nearest metro is Passeig de Gracia, 2 blocks away (about 500m). This metro is also on a direct line from the airport (Renf Line 10) so if you don't mind carrying your luggage two blocks, that's a cheap way to get to the hotel (taxi is 20 Euros weekdays, 30 euros weekends).
This is an excellent hotel for a city break due to all of the below:
The highlight of this hotel is soaking in the jacuzzi on the rooftop of the hotel after a day of sightseeing round Barcelona
Well worth of a visit......
