... But not Ernesto. Ernesto walked past, looked in and moaned in agony. He doubled over pressing his palms into his eyes and yelling, "Mis ojos! Mis ojos!" Two of his friends were rubbing his back like they clearly understood the tragedy of this sighting. Trying not to crack up, I asked Ernesto if his ojos were going to be okay or if he needed to head to the ...
... The club was crazy it was massive inside with an even bigger patio outside that walked out to the beach! After we danced out butts off all night we headed out to hang out on the beach as their is more people who hang out all over this part of the beach than can fit in the club! We made some friends and ended up sitting on the beach all night hanging out and finished it off by watching he amazing ...

Barcelona has a population of about 1.6 million people, but has about 5 million people in the metropolitan area.
On that note..all plans have gone out the window, and it hasn't ended being an early night for anyone.
I am off to bed now and will awake tomorrow and see if we have any fresh comments on the blog- or an email with some news.(hint).
... to be right next to the Cathedral . . . And that's where we found it, although if you blinked you'd miss the entrance! Fascinating to walk over 2000 year old Roman ruins that are beneath the city - Barcino defence walls were started in 12BC, something I find hard to even fathom. Sam enjoyed trying to picture the city, Belle loved walking on the glass walkways, I loved the mosaic floors and Pablo loved reading about the 600square ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Boria Bcn Barcelona
Have just returned from a 3 day break at the Boria BCN. From the aeroport took the Blue aerobus to placa catalunya which cost 3.60 euros each, then purchased a 3 day travelcard card for just over 12 euros, good value. The hotel has a great location, 100 m from Jaume 1 tube, 5 mins to the Cathedral, 5 mins to the picaso musuem, 10 mins walk to the port, 10 mins from Las ramblas. All in all a great location for exploring the city.
Loved the Hotel but.........
I stayed at the hotel for a week and it was like staying in a luxurious studio apartment. The downside was the views and that we had to keep our curtains closed all the time as the neighbours have a good view inside your apartment.
The hotel is centrally located 100m from Jaume Metro station and about 5 minutes walk to the Las Ramblas. The staff were welcoming and helpful.
The only downside to this hotel was that you could only use the microwave to warm your food up, as we were travelling with kids this was a bit of a headache.
Other than that a great hotel.
Luxury and what it means
We stayed at the boria for 5 days and what a wonderful place to spend our first visit to Barcelona. The hotel was centrally located and was like staying in a luxurious loft apartment. The junior suite had two large sized bedrooms and kitchen facilities.
The hotel laid on complementary chocolates and wine for when we arrived and flowers were in every room. The staff were fantastic and were always happy to help. The only downside was i travelled with my child, and although they advertise satellite tv, the only English channel was the BBC world news.
I would defintely stay there again.
We were amazed that we could afford to stay at a hotel which looked so modern and luxurious, and were concerned that the reality wouldn't live up to it, but it most certainly did.
Our room was fantastic particulary for space and flexibility. It was like a home from home having the comfort of seperate areas.
A lovely hotel located in an old building but with a chic modern interior. The suites were very comfortable and contained everything we wanted. The complimentary cava on arrival was a nice touch! We had trouble working out what all the buttons and switches did in the room, so a written guide would have been helpful. Two things which grated slightly was the fact that we always had to buzz the front door to be let in. There were times coming back at night we would have to buzz 3 or 4 times before someone would open the door. Furthermore as with most hotels in this area, the rooms can be rather noisy at night. Noise reverberates in the narrow street in front of hotel and the nightly 1am visit of the dustbin men is annoying.
Stylish, charming and friendly.
Stayed in 5 star hotels all over the place, this was the first time I went in a room and said wow.
Staff very friendly and offer personal reccomendations for local dining.
Location is downtown Barcelona, a million things happening and this is slap in the middle.
Downsides? no restaurant but that sends you out in the local streets where memorable meals will be found.
Oh and for what you get , it's really cheap.
You should try it.
We chose this hotel as it offered suites at very reasonable prices (mid-week). As we have a baby who's just learning to walk, we wanted somewhere with plenty of room for him to manoeuvre, particularly as we wouldn't be out sightseeing all the time. The rooms were certainly big and well furnished (although glass coffee tables aren't exactly baby-friendly) and the kitchenette was extremely useful. Everything was kept spotless and the staff were very helpful.
Stay in style
The hotel is located in the streets of old town barcelona, fairly hidden but close to metro subway. The Hotel is nicely decorated and offers very good amenities, very clean and modern. The staff are very friendly and extremely helpful. Very good value for money and recommend for a short break.
