Disembarkation day went smoothly. We stayed as long as we could onboard but finally had to leave around 9:30am so they could get the ship ready for the next cruise. We grabbed a taxi at the port and headed to Hotel Inglaterra, our home for the next 2 nights. We booked it over the internet after reading some good reviews on the Cruise Critic boards …
... I would highly re consider. I do believe there is something here for everyone. For me it is the mix of culinary delights, Gaudi's architecture, and the cultures of not only the Spanish but the Catalonians as well. As a bonus, you are next to the water which always makes me very enthusiastic. Barcelona seems to have mastered a lovely balance, at least culturally and historically of course. If you are looking for a single destination holiday spot, Barcelona may just be the ...
anyway moving on - Hotel 2 was quite nice, as was barcelona as a whole (well the whole part that was nice, not the part that was a hole) Sorry can't help myself.
The beach was awesome - I only took one shot coz spent the rest of the time in the water or sleeping in the sun
Food was good - best pizza ever
will add a little more to this entry later. It's way past my bed time & I have a big day tomoro
... the Nativity Facade is the Passion Facade. The third and main
façade is the Glory Facade. Construction of this facade - the most monumental
of the three - started in 2002 and is still ongoing. This facade, on the south
side of the church, will picture life and death.
My whole circadian is all off. We got to the room and our bags magically
appeared. Yay! Today we spent all day on the ship traveling to ...
... of cava. YUM. The locals went NUTS when Munich beat Madrid in the soccer playoffs tonight. So passionate about their futbol. On our walk back, guys in the alleys try to sell us cans of beer (which is not uncommon, she says) and we find a papas fritas place that serves 'em hot with garlic mayo. It's a great late night snack and sure beat a Jack in the Box taco! ha ha. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Inglaterra Hotel Barcelona
Great value, great location
Great find, small sister hotel of the more exclusive Hotel Majestic. Just down from Playa Catalunia, five minutes walk from top of The Ramblas but far enough away so not too noisy. Great boutique style rooms, big for a European city, spotless bathrooms, small balconies. Graded a 3 star as no bar or concierge but cant fault it on anything. Would definitely stay again, great value.
Check-in went fine, English speaking front desk person and was given two connecting rooms for myself, wife and two small children as promised. Was disappointed in the size of the rooms, dirty carpets, and lack of any drawer or shelf space for clothes. Size of the room only allowed a shorter than normal bed that would not accommodate my 6'-4" size. We went looking for another hotel that afternoon that offered more space and a more comfortable accommodation. Spent one night and wasn't charged for the other three nights of our reservation.
Worth Looking At
The Inglaterra is definetly worth looking at... After the warm reception i.e. Our room was ready when we got there at 9:00am! A real plus. The staff was courteous and helpful, the rooms were very clean although on the small side, and it really is RIGHT in the middle of Barcelona. We were pleasantly suprised. For a first timer in Barcelona it truly was a great starting point. Better yet, the price was exellent. We booked on Venere. In fact we had made reservations at the Ritz for 4 nights and decided to cancel because we found this hotel to be more centrally located.
Good value for money
In July '03 we stayed a couple of days at the Inglaterra, just a short stroll from Catalunya Plaza. A neat well kept place with all the usually stuff, clean and efficient. Don't know much about breakfirst, best idea is to get to the bar next door, they serve good ham and eggs! The rooms are quite and spotless clean, with air con, cable tv, bath tub and mini bar etc. But, it lacks a little bit of atmosphere. Overall good value for your money, in a hard to beat central location.
Clean, modern well-placed but not cheap
Nice, clean, modern hotel very well located near Ramblas, Old Town and main attaractions as well as near the University underground station. Hotel staff were helpful when asked for assistance.
May be a bit unpersonal (no Spanish feel but some Japanese touches) and a bit expensive. Next door cafe provides cheaper alternative to the hotel breakfast option.
Brochures and websites would have you believe that this hotel is the lap of luxury, but in truth we found it to be pretty basic. There was just one bar/cafe area, which when we visited had just two other guests reading so we felt pretty uncomfortable talking as there was no background music, or general atmosphere. We also had to go looking for someone to serve us a drink.
The room was nothing special either, although we couldn't get one with a balcony so maybe this made a difference. It was quite basic, with twin beds instead of the double we'd asked for. We'd already had to switch rooms because the first room we were given hadn't been cleaned so we didn't ask to move again.
The staff weren't particurlarly friendly. With the exception of the guy who had checked us in on the first night, nobody said hello or goodbye to us anytime we passed through reception, although we always did to them. Also, until we started putting up the "Do not disturb" sign we were being woken at ten every morning by the housekeepers, then again every fifteen minutes (or so it felt) until we got up and left for the day.
In all, I'd say the hotel was nothing special, apart from the convenience of the location. There was nothing Spanish feeling about it, in fact it lacked any character in general. It was very clean and "new" feeling but not quite in league with other hotels of the same standard. For a lot less money we could have stayed in a 'pension' just as central and enjoyed a much warmer and pleasanter atmosphere.
