En oikein hallitse tätä ohjelmaa, joten piti aloittaa uusi päivitys, että sain kirjattua Barcelonan kohteeksi. Aloitimme hyvällä aamupalalla sitten suuntasimme Ramplasille ja Cataluniyan aukiolle, josta hop-on-hop-off -bussit kulkevat. On ihanan lämmin, luulisin, että yli 30 astetta. Matkalla bussille poikkeamme Desiguall-kauppaan. Luulisin, että t …
Barcelona is home to 1.6 million people and is situated between the sea and the mountains. A large square, Placa de Catalunya, divides the old and newer parts of town. The first day we focused on the newer section of town.

Later that evening Hylton, Bryan and I headed to the football to watch Barcelona vs Getafe, not a big crowd but still a good game. Messi who is one of Barcelona's key players return after 2 months off and the crowd went wild! He was only for about 30 mins of the second half - but scored 2 goals. Game ended Barcelona ...

So Spain... here we are in the land of tapas and bull fighting, flamenco dancing, beautiful beaches and sangria. A little earlier in the season I am sure the beaches would be absolutely swamped with vacationers and sun seekers, but for now it seems there is no shortage of tourists in the cities (so much for "low ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsNouvel Hotel Barcelona
erinomainen sijainti, ystävällinen, englannintaitoinen henkilökunta, hyvät sängyt, ilmastointi, parvekkeet, siisti, toimivat suihkut, tilavat huoneet, kunnollinen ja runsas aamiainen. Ainut huono puoli on littanat tyynyt. Suosittelen varauksetta.

Historical Traveler Reviews Nouvel Hotel Barcelona
I stayed in this Hotel in April 2004 with my family. I have 2 kids and this is the only one in the city center could accommodate us.
I stayed at the Nouvel Hotel in June 2004. It is true to say that the hotel is not as nice as shown on the web but don't be put off. The hotel
Stayed there with my partner in July 2001. The location is excellent, right off La Rambla, with many eating and entertainment outlets very close by. This must be the reason for the rate because the Hotel itself I would rate a C+. Old bed mattresses, way below average breakfast (included in the rate). The staff seemed to have been picked from a temporary employment agency and on their first day at work - everyday. Beware, if you come early you will have to take your luggage yourself to this impossible hole in the back. The staff member will look at you with an expressionless face while you struggle along. For my next trip I will be looking for somewhere else. Hotel Lleo for instance, not too far away is a much better over all value for your money even if it does not have that old world musty damp charm that Nouvel has but the breakfast at Hotel Lleo is actually good and the staff were a riot.
A Good but not 100% value for money choise
We spent almost 4 days at the Hotel Nouvel. It is true that as it has already been mentioned that "the hotel itself is not as grand as the photographs suggest". However I would suggest it to anyone who wnats to feel what Las Rambas means! The hotel is loacated at the "very center" of the city and next to the metro station. And this fact by its self is very important for a city such as Barcelona. The rooms (ask for the 5th floor) are recently renovated and are above average for a 3 star hotel.
The staff however although polite reminds you of a 2 star hotel personell... Furthermore, there is no roomservice but... who wants to stay in the hotel anyway...? I would not hesitate to suggest that hotel but I think that one should look for better options first.
We spent a wonderful weekend at the Hotel Nouvel. The hotel itself is not as grand as the photographs suggest; it's just a simple, no frills, good value sort of place with enough character and atmosphere to make it feel a bit special. The staff are pleasant (our chambermaid was particularly sweet). The location is superb. You turn out of the hotel into a quiet, pedestrianised street just off La Rambla, the vibrant main street, full of pet stalls with squawking birds, flower stalls and street entertainers, the market La Boqueria, a little way down, bursting with colourful, exotic food, the whole place full of people and humming with life - and this is in February! The breakfast room (and it's so nice to have breakfast provided) is rented out to another company who turn it into a magical restaurant at night, serving delicious food. All in all, highly recommended - if you are not looking for luxury.
Makes me not want to stay in a period hotel again
As we love Art Deco and Art Nouveau, this hotel looked very appealing on the web page and in photos, but in person it is rather shabby. The double rooms are not much larger than the bed and for a room with a balcony, couples need to stay in twin beds. The bath was nice with central heating and the micro telly had only German MTV. The location of the Barri Gothic was good, but the street it is not is not particularly nice. The food was dire. The hotel staff was nice, but you felt like you knew they had to make up for the acomodations. It was like a hotel time forgot.
Hotel looked really nice on the site but were we shocked to see the small, not so clean room (hair on the sheets, bath tub dirty) that looked out on a wall. Luckily the staff wasn't bothered to give us another room (bigger and a terrace). Must admit that the location is just perfect!
Have just returned from a 3 night stay at the Nouvel.Don't be put off by the skip outside- the building works didn't affect us at all.It may not be a luxury hotel, but our rooms were clean, comfortable and quiet, with excellent bathrooms.The staff were very helpful and friendly,and the buffet breakfast good.What couldn't be beaten however was the position- perfect for exploring this vibrant ciyt on foot or by public transport being only 50m from the Ramblas and not much further from the transport hub of Pl Catalunya, yet in a quiet pedestrian road.The hotel's restaurant La Luna does an excellent 3 course lunch and a la carte dinner Good valueWould stay at the Nouvel again and recommend it highly to others
Great location shame about the room
The first impression we had of this hotel wasn't great as there was a shoot leading to a skip placed directly outside the entrance. Ok, work was in progress, this happens. We reached for the glazed door. Filthy.
Oh dear. Reception was ok and the staff pleasant so we were looking forward to seeing our room which was on the third floor via a rather grand staircase. Unfortunately we were disappointed as it was dull, dark and dreary but the bathroom was ok and the air-conditioning worked. Ours was only a short stay and we did have a lovely time in Barcelona but our overall thoughts are "great location, shame about the room."
Great location shame about our view!
The Nouvel Hotel is situated in a pedestrian street off La Rambla and close to the transport hub of Catalunya Square. Excellent fot the Gothic quarter. Plenty of character with original marble and wood and beautiful light fittings in the public areas. Very pleasant and helpful reception staff and good buffet breakfast. Rooms appear mainly to be small as is normal in most city centre hotels, very well equipped bathroom newly refurbished as was the bedroom. The problem we had was that we overlooked an exterior service shaft with soil pipes amongst others running down the walls. It could be a little smelly too. I would have no problem in recommending this hotel but just ask not to be in an outside facing room.
