Traveler's Tapas

A travel blog entry by europepilgrims on Aug 01, 2013

After nearly 27 hours of traveling, we made it to Barcelona! We treated ourselves to tapas and beer at a street cafe near the Parca d'Espania. It took 27 hours to get here because we were lucky enough to get a frequent flyer trip during this heavy travel season - which meant two connections, one in LA and one in Berlin ... And no seats in Business …

Barcelona

... We checked out the city almost completely on foot so it was nice to come back to the pool to relax after walking around all day. The hotel was also close to the section of the city where the Barcelona Olympics were held. We walked to the main part where many of the events took place which also provided some sweeping views of the Barcelona skyline.

Heart of Darkness

A travel blog entry by fatdamien

... Ah the romance of travel eh? I took this auspicious occasion on my long, lonely journey into the unknown to read Heart of Darkness, which turned out to be a more apt choice than I initially realized, and to draw the wind turbines passing my window, being jousted by a space-age Don Quixote.
THRILLING TALES OF SUSPENSE!
More interesting than that: Bullfighting! It's crazy! A bull nearly flipped ...

The last push to the destination.

... Maybe it's to do with the complicated street structures here? Anyway, after the quick discussion amongst themselves, they helped us to the right way. This time, it worked! Hooray!!

Joan has a small 2 bedroom apartment in this typical European old building. He is a very nice guy with lots of cassette tapes (of 80s music). I'm sure he and Greg have lots in common. :)

Ok, time to sleep. Super tired...

Flying TXL-BCN

... except for the 332, which includes 20 Business Class seats.

On my 737-700, there are 24 rows of six across for a total of 144 seats. I paid extra to reserve Exit Row Seat 12C on Flight 8722. I believe the cost was 20 euros ($26.20). A flight time of 2:10 to Barcelona was announced.

The two seats to my left were empty until the doors were closed, then a father and his daughter asked if the seats were free and moved into them from Row 11. I thought they were sneaking ...

    Hotelul mi-a placut foarte mult. Este foarte curat, este liniste, camerele sunt spatioase, micul dejun bogat. Este vis-a-vis de statia de metrou si langa gara. Camera dubla a fost 100 eur./noapte.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Gran Hotel Torre Catalunya Barcelona

    Absolutely gorgeous

    from

    booked this hotel over the internet. Arrived on 17th October for two nights. On first impressions thought the hotel was lovely. We stayed on the 17th floor. Our room was great, it was really clean, and the bathroom was good too. We paid £175 euros for two people for two nights, this did not include breakfast. When we arrived at the airport we got a taxi to the hotel and were charged £38 euros. We found out afterwards we were ripped off, and that it should cost no more than £20. Ask for a price before you get in. Overall we had a fantastic time. Barcelona is really lovely. We went by taxi to Las Ramblas, which is worth visiting. I would certainly recommend this hotel.

    Disappointed

    from

    After reading all the reviews for the Torre Cataluyna on Trip Advisor, I was expecting a decent hotel - but was very disappointed. Yes, it's a big hotel (rather souless), with large bedrooms (very nice bathroom) and great views. And OK at 75 EUR the night it's not expensive for Barcelona. BUT I was very disapointed with the location (right opposite the station with all the usual problems that entails especially at night), quite far from the centre of town with no decent bars/restaurants in the vicinity, the staff were pretty hopeless and as for the services at the hotel - there didn't appear to be any!

    Great City , Great Hotel

    from

    From arrival to departure and the days in between for 74 euros a night you will not find better value. First impressions of the room were superb, large comfortable and well equipted. However when you slide back the large mirrored door you enter bathroon heaven!! Huge shower, separate bath, double vanity units, fluffy towels - the list goes on. If you can drag yourself away from the wide screen tv and well stocked mini bar you are only 100 yards from the metro which in minutes takes you to many parts of the city. Whats more the "bus touristic " which is a hop on hop off service that takes you to every point of interest stops outside the station which is 100 yards away.

    Great Stay!

    from

    I stayed here for 4 nights in October with my brother. The hotel was great. Excellent amenities, and the 75 euro per night rate is unbeatable. Breakfast was not included, and the spa wasn“t ready, but the cleanliness of the room and its features made up for that. The hotel is not walking distance to Las Ramblas, but during the day, you can take the metro (15 minutes) or the RENFE train to Plaza Catalunya for 1.10 Euro. At night after midnight during the week,and presumably later on weekends, you can take a taxi or bus number 2 from plaza catalunya. We stayed in non smoking room with 2 twin beds.

    Perfect ... with some drawbacks

    from

    Last week we stayed four nights at the Torre catalunya.

    Enjoy the view!!

    from

    My partner and I stayed there for 5 nights during the UK bank holiday week (30 Aug). We had a room on 18th Floor with views of the sea and the Olympic stadium. Rooms are great, modern with all the facilities you need. Huge marble bathroom with a massive walk-in shower and separate deep bath tub. Chocolates on arrival and prompt room service. They even put satin mats by the bed each night!!!

    The panaramic views of Barcelona from the 23rd floor restaurant are breath-taking and worth the stay just for that!

    We paid 70 euros per night bed & full breakfast. Disappointed that the spa in the basement was not yet built, it will be ready by Dec 2004 I was told by reception.

    Rooms better than the 5 star Grand Marina that we were given a full tour of during our stay.

    Great!!!

    from

    The room was really excellent, new, very spacious and comfortable. I was a little disappointed when I learned that there wasn't a coffee maker and the existing room service. I didn't really care knowing they just opened recently and the reception were friendly and very helpful. It is really worth it considering we just paid like 80 euro a night. There was also the famous Churros with the chocolate dip outside the hotel opened till 6 am in the morning. Very accessible to everywhere.

    Stunning Rooms !!!!

    from

    Absolutely fantastic rooms. We had a 22nd floor room and the view is just awesome - rest of the lower floors are still being completed but you wont here any noise at all. Great location just £3 in a cab to centre of the city and literally 1 minute walk to the train station. You can also use the rooftop outdoor pool of sister hotel The Expo right next door - Awesome value at just £78 euros per night for the room (it had a 32" ws tv and hifi system ) - Highly recommended.

    Perfect!

    from

    Perfect hotel, only opened two months ago.Near the train (renfe) and the subway. I got a room on the 20 th floor where the view was breath taking. The rooms are very big with modern furniture and great design. The WC has fantastic it had one shower and also a bathtub. The staff is very polite. We paid 75 euro for night. Definitely deserves another stay. And Barcelona is great!!!! Enjoy it.
