TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Nice La Seu d'Urgell
Very comfortable hotel, room a bit small but after a couple of nights elsewhere it makes you realise just how good it feels to be very comfortable. The staff are very helpful and communicate in about three or four languages so that helps us a lot. They managed to find a good spot for our bikes too so that was a bonus.
Withe the veranda windows closed you cannot hear a single noise from the street but when opened the street noises and sunlight drift into the room.

... around Andorra La Vella.
The place is in a spectacular setting, deep in a valley surrounded by very high and steep cliffs.
The city isn't at all like I expected it to be. I expected an 'olde worlde' type city with lots of wooden buildings, quaint tourist shops and plenty of restaurants, with cobbled streets. The city isn't like that at all. It is a modern city ...
... just over the border in a town called Puigcerda and had Tapas at a local restaurant.

... hour due to a communication mixup with our Airbnb host. The apartment is in one of the many narrow side streets branching off from Les Rambles and is on the second floor of a very old apartment block, with stairwells like a maze. It is less than salubrious, but really close to everything. In the evening we walk down to the waterfront and have a lovely meal in a beautiful setting overlooking the water to celebrate our arrival in ...
... is no snow on the mountains parts of the road and some of the views are breathtaking. The lower tunnel to Andorra is closed for maintenance so we climb even higher than might normally be the case. The tunnel at the top is over two Kms long and we emerge into the affluent, ski settlement of Canillo. It is an impressive sight. The road up to Andorra I think is used for the Tour de France and once through the tunnel the roads are much wider and there are lots of chalets and ...
... ended at a leisure park on a mountaintop - tube slides, bouncing castles, MTB, horses, and more; crowds and not much hope of a camp. Coffee and down again. In the suburb of Andorra La Vella, called St Julia De Loria, luckily spotted the same free campsite behind a supermarket that Miles and Marina had camped in, in April. Roaring river next to us, that once again will drown out local traffic. We ...
