getting the hang of this camping lark but it has to be said that
we're not quite there yet. Avid followers of this rubbish will
recall that early days, we (Jane!) had to purchase warm clothing and
that we had to buy a tarp so we could cook in the dry. We've also
worked out, over time, that you need to park the tent the right way
round so you're not sleeping with your head downhill and ...
... extra day in Barcelona. We think that sounds good but were unable to communicate quickly with Mandi who is acting as our travel arranger so we haven't actually secured that routing as of yet. The time difference makes communication cumbersome. We decide to put travel concerns aside and enjoy the day, the place and the weather.
At 12:30 we return to the hotel and are given a room with a king size bed. It is minimalist lodging to say ...

First thign first, had a shower, Next thing, invest in a map and getting figuring out landmarks and sightseeing. Knock some of them out of the way. Honestly my first thought of Barcelona was this is far too big, far too confusing and disorientating, I didnt particularly like it. That quickly changed.

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......
