Woke up half an hour before my wake up call at around 6.30am. The girl downstairs called me a taxi that arrived within 10 minutes, and I was at Seville airport 25 minutes later. Cost; 20.80 Euros.
I'm staying at the Duc de la Victoria in Barcelona which is in great location a block away from La Rambla and right on the edge of …
... gold, silver or minted coins. By and by the Jewish population was down to zero. In the 1987 through old tax records someone tracked down the location of the Barcelona Synagogue which is described to be the oldest in Europe. It was used as a warehouse for the restaurant located next door for many, many years. The Synagogue faces Jerulseum and the door is low so you would have to bow as you enter. It was reopened in 2002 but is no longer an ...
... and don't have a car, then bus number 21 from Paral.lel will get you to the cemetery. We didn't find any useful signs or notices that might have directed us to the site of the grave but after we'd dithered around for a bit (quite a 'bit' actually), Julie found an on-line map on her 'phone and we used this for navigation. It helped a lot.
In brief, turn left when you get off the bus and you will shortly come to Carrer de Santa Eulalia (within ...

Not sure what to do next since lunch time was coming up in 40 minutes. I start walking towards the main street. Wasn't reaching it as quickly as I had approximated, but there sure are a lot of Pakistani, Indian, Africa, and Asian stores here. I kinda mellowed about the different vibe, and realized where I was. El Raval. I had read that at night this place is real sketchy. Oh. I found it. It was kinda nice actually once I made ...
... thing before we call it a day: Arc de Triomf. It was very interesting looking. I mean, the only one I know was Arc de Triomphe in Paris. And that's the kind of image I had for this one. But this one was in red (brick colour)! We didn't know anything about this arc, but later found out that it was made for Spain's first Expo held here in 1888.
Oh it was a long day! We are exhausted but need to get back and work. :)

Historical Traveler Reviews NH Barcelona Centro
Great, briilant location
modern hotel, friendly staff, excellent breakfast , a vast selection of food ,you can eat as much as you like.The hotel could not have been better located omly 4 min walk to la ramblas.The hotel is situated on aside street so it was extremlely quiet which was lovely, we will stay here again and recommend anyone to go there.
Great hotel & location
I stayed at this hotel for a few days in Feb 04. It has a great location right next to the Ramblas just off Catalunya square. Its is easy to get to as the bus from the airport stops in the square (3,45 Euros and runs every 15 minutes from the airport) . Rooms are clean and modern with wooden floors. Hotel staff were very helpful and the rates were good.Although it is very central it is in a pedestrian area so is very quiet. This also means there are plenty of restaurants and bars within walking distance. I would definitely recommend this hotel and its location.
Agree with many previous users. Fantastic location, but quiet - a rarity in this buzzy city. Smart , well equipped rooms, even better if you can get a deal by booking ahead. Staff efficient, but very slightly disinterested, but it was of no matter to us. Did not take breakfast there, but used the tiny but friendly bagel shop around the corner.
Have recommended to all my friends as a great place to stay.
Lovely hotel with great location
stayed 4 nights at this lovely hotel just recently. Great location just steps from the Ramblas and Barrio Gotico. Very modern, clean and friendly. Fabulous breakfast with an entire section just for diabetics.
Can highly recommend it!
The hotel was in an excellent location, just 5 mins from la rambla and catuluna square and the large catherdaral. The hotel was spotless and the staff were all lovely. There is no bar in the hotel but if you did want a drink in the room the minibar is well stocked and not over priced. We had a beautiful meal in the attic restaruant which on the first floor of the building on la rambla not far from the hotel. excellent service, food and price. we drank in a lovely tapas bar called e'. joseph and marcus and all the staff were lovely. beautiful city well worth the break.
Great Hotel, Mediocre Staff
Spent 10 days there in January 2004. Previous review exact about amenities and location. We licked out since they were full and got a "superior" room on the first floor with a balcony--very roomy. Only drawback: Desk staff were unhelpful and just short of surly. City is magnificant and a real kick. Paradise for walkers, fashionistas, art and architecture lovers, history buffs, culture watchers and people lovers. Go, you won't regret it!
Stayed at the hotel in January 2004. Great hotel. Very modern furnishings and nice bath amenities. Hard to beat the location. If you want a view, request a room on the top floor with a balcony (warning -- these rooms are very small, so donīt ask for the room if the size of the room is more important to you than the view). Enjoy!
This hotel is excellent in price, facilities, location.... Only disadvantage is that there isn't a bar there but what the hell - La Ramblas is only a stones throw away !!
HIGHLY RECCOMMENDED !!
To enjoy barcelona best
My wife and I stayed there for six nights in 2001. This hotel cannot be beat for location - smack in the middle of everything and yet in the quietest street in the center of it all.The rooms are spacious and very comfortable, as well as clean and well kept (the hotel was aquite new then). The only exception to our praise is the price of the breakfast, which was too high for us (we didn't take it).
Great hotel with ideal location
My family and I stayed in this hotel over the New Year. It is located right next to the Ramblas and most other attractions .Rooms are modern and well equipped with wooden floors and excellent amentity kits. Hotel staff were very friendly booking us in to a great restaurant to celebrate the New Year. Rates are very reasonable, Would definitely recommend this hotel.
