... day we slept in late and then Rita, Stef, and I went to get tapas! I got mussels, a Spanish omelette (tortilla), and bravas potatoes. Everything was pretty good!
Then Rita and I went to Parc Guell where you can get a really nice view of the city and the park is really cute. It was awesome! And no one was there! Rita said that it is usually packed and hard to get good pictures but we got good pictures this time! ...
... tending to the pedestrian. He appeared to understand and said “okay.” My total taxi fare was thus $28.95 in dollar equivalent, which is really expensive for a 20-minute trip. My basic taxi philosophy is that $1/minute is a reasonable rate for taxi service; anything above that is expensive. This trip worked out to $1.45/minute. Ugh.
I got my luggage out of the taxi at 1:17 in front of the Celebrity Reflection, docked at Terminal B. I then I had to walk about ...
My goal is to get to sleep before 11 pm tonight, and I think that might happen. Right now I'm hoping my bag weighs less than 50 pounds. I did buy a bottle of red wine and some shoes and other trinkets, but nothing major. Speaking of stuff....the folks on my tour need to take some packing lessons from Rick Steves. Holy cats! Most of them had only one (very large) ...

Fifth stop: La Sagrada Familia Church
Another must see if you're in Barcelona. Such an amazing wonder, and now you know why it is still a work in progress. Pictures don't do justice. You have to see it in person.
Sixth stop: Toc59, Carrer de ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsEuroPark Hotel Barcelona
The Europark is a modern hotel in the Eixample district of Barcelona. It is 20 mins walk to the Sagrada Famiglia , 5 mins to nearest Metro station and 20 to 30 mins from other main areas of interest. We chose room 901, which has a balcony but beware the high step to get onto it! The bed was very large and comfy. The room and bathroom decorated in modern black and white. Quite a good buffet breakfast but the scramble egg needs to be got as soon as it is put out. I would recommend to anyone who is over for just a couple of days doing the sightes.

Historical Traveler Reviews EuroPark Hotel Barcelona
Stayed March 2004, Good location for visiting all attractions, Nice clean rooms(don't expect them to be large it is a mid-price city hotel remember), Breakfast was nice, typically european (bread,meat,cheese and cakes!) Lifts are very small and hold only 2 peple at a time.
Europark Hotel Barcelona
I stayed in the Europark Hotel February 2003 and found the room very small and basic. There was a terrible smell coming from the sink and some staff members on reception were not very helpful at all. We paid a lot for the weekend in this hotel and felt that it was overpriced.
Weekend visit to Barcelona
I stayed in the Europark Hotel for a long weekend in Dec 03. The room was small, dark and very hot - we found it hard to sleep. There was air conditioning but it did not seem to work effectively. Saying that the room was clean and we did not spend much time there as there was so much to do and see in Barcelona. The hotel staff on the front desk were not in the least bit friendly. It was a very impersonal hotel.

Europark Hotel, Barcelona
I stayed at the Europark for two nights a week ago and found my room dark and dingy with little natural light - felt claustrophobic and cramped. Facilities were fine but the breakfast was a rip-off 9 Euros for a meagre buffet style spread - avoid it at all costs and find a local cafe instead. Good location though - set in the Eixample Dreta, it was a great place to use as a base with many of the Modernista buildings within easy reach. Do not believe the marketing that says you can see the Sagrada Familia from the hotel! If you can get a good room rate deal, go for it but do not expect high standards. Staff were friendly and helpful.
Perfect for Weekend Break
Great Little hotel right in the middle of everything. All the sights are easily accessible by foot or by the really easy to use and safe Metro. Staff were very friendly and full of information on request. Breakfast wasn't great but adequate. Could see the Church Familia - Gaudi's masterpiece from our room and this being one of the most famous Barcelona landmarks meant you knew you were there every morning just by looking out the window. Can't wait to go back there.
