... food here in Barcelona is delicious. My birthday was simple and easy. Just relaxed and chilled in Barcelona. The girls went halves on our meal and took heaps of photos. Tomorrow we're going to on a walk tour and then chill or muck around then head to our flamenco dance. Happiness! Thank you Lord for your love and protection. Thank you for pulling through, despite ...

... kinda sucked and it was a long walk away. Nothing noteworthy happened until I came back with Michael Tom at 4am and started to talk to these awesome and intelligent girls from Jerusalem. I learned a lot about their military service and what young people do before, during, and after. It was pretty fascinating, but we had to go to bed because we were going to do our first full day of biking TOMORROW. AWWW YEAAHHH

... about 45 minutes before departure, when Gate D9 was shown.

When I reached D9, I asked the girl about Speedy Boarding, and she confirmed that I’d be boarding first. I had also paid for a designated seat (11D) so knew where I’d be sitting. When they announced boarding, I was indeed at the front of the line. The Speedy Boarding passengers were instructed to go to the closed doors at the end of the air ramp, and then wait. There was A/C in ...

Barcelona Day 3 - Barceloneta, Leona & Free Pours

... It's a sunny Sunday, and there's probably more locals than tourists around. There's a strip of restaurants and bars all with packed terraces to the left, and the moll to the right. There's street performers of all types along the moll, and more than a few people like me, just hanging out and soaking up the sun and atmosphere. Further along are the actual beaches, the first of which is Barceloneta, where a few hardy souls ...

    Way better than I expected - only issue is a little far from port

    Historical Traveler Reviews Rey Juan Carlos I Hotel Barcelona

    Soulless hulk

    from

    The hotel is basically a massive characterless hulk - almost vulgar.

    Great hotel, but too far out

    from

    Stayed one night at the Hotel Rey Juan Carlos. Rooms are fantastic. Bathroom was large, modern and very clean--much better than the Arts, where I thought the bathrooms needed renovating.

    Only problem is this hotel is 20-30 mins by taxi from the city centre. If you want to be in the heart of the action, beware.

    Peace and quiet in a hectic city

    from

    Visited Barcelona from 23rd-25th Sept. Had not realised that this was the weekend of the big festival! The city was busier than usual and so there was no chance of getting a taxi in the evenings. The one and only problem with this hotel is the distance from all the action, it took approx 25 mins on the metro. The hotel was very smart and clean with a great buffet breakfast. It was very quiet, I can imagine that the hotels in the centre of the city would have been noisy, making it difficult to sleep.

    Tropical Resort in the City

    from

    We stayed at this hotel for a congress in August. The rooms were very nice and had beautiful marble bathes with a separate shower, tub and toilet area. The grounds, gardens and pools are truly beautiful, like a tropical resort in the middle of the city. The spa and work out facility were also very nice and first rate, except that due to vacations, they only had one therapist working so it was impossible to get a treatment. The hotel itself was beautiful but the front desk and concierge staff were not up to par with what I would consider 5 star service. However, the doormen, waitstaff and room service staff were quick and very helpful. Also, request a room away from the elevators as the ding when they arrive on a floor (it is an open atruim type lobby) and it can be heard in your room.

    Awesome hotel!

    from

    My fiance and I stayed at the hotel and we had a splendid time. We had a room that had a beautiful view of the hotel grounds and the port. The breakfast was gourmet; delicous eggs and freshly made waffles, and of course, a fresh fruit, cereal and danishes. We visited the spa and pools everyday and even got a chocolate massage! I 100% recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to visit Barcelona.

    Appauling service not worthy of 5 star

    from

    Appauling service not worthy of 5 stars in my opinion. I have stayed in a fair amount of hotels over the past few years all picked from the leading hotels of the world brochure and in my opinion this hotel should be taken off their lists beacause of the terrible front desk staff. We arrived to check in and there was no one in front of us at the desk, however the staff made us wait 15 mins before they could show us to our room or even deem to speak to us. I had booked a double room and was shown to a twin room. Room service was virtually non existant and indeed the brochures with the menu were withdrawn from all rooms on our 2nd night. We asked the concierge questions about what to do and where to eat and everything seemed too much trouble. In all the places I have stayed this hotel comes way below the bottom of the list. The only redeeming factor is that it is a beautiful setting and looks great on photos.

    Poor value for money

    from

    I booked this hotel as part of a conference package for the sole reason that it was close to the conference location. The room cost approximately E.270 a night for a double and we stayed for 5 nights.

    Good hotel let down by service

    from

    I stayed there as part of a conference. The hotel was very good, the rooms are modern and spotless and very large by barcelona standards. The food was good as was room sevice. My only gripe is the staff, they seemed a bit cold and stuck up.

    Optimal conference hotel

    from

    Booked it as part of conference package. Good connections (end of tube line nearby and close to Bernabeu Stadium) but out of city centre.

    Wonderful large rooms and nice garden. Separate outside pool (good!) and inside pool with gym; latter one not included in usual conference package. Nice restaurants and conference rooms. And reasonably friendly staff, nothing to complain really!

    Hotel lovely, service average

    from

    Beautiful hotel set a little out of Barcelona (costs about 25€ in a taxi into the harbour area). The highlight of the hotel is the beautiful Royal Fitness Suite - which you have to pay extra for - There is an indoor pool and an outdoor pool with jacuzzi seats. There is also another outdoor pool that you don't have to pay extra to use.
