Navigating through the airport to a taxi (We needed a van. Someone over packed. I'm not naming names!) was a piece of cake. The taxi beamed us through a massive city. Vibrant and full of scooters!

It took less than 20 minutes and we arrived at the Renaissance Hotel Barcelona, just a block off of the major street and center of the city. …

... glistening off the water so it looked like lights were sparkling in the sea...Joan pointed up at a hill top in the distance and told us how Catalans had bombed the city of Barcelona from that hill many times over the years...very interesting stuff and will tell you more about the Catalans in our next blog! We left the beach and got a bus home, stopping to get a pizza, scoffed and passed out after the looooongest day ever which is crazy as all the other days just fly ...

... coffee runs for me. No pressure either.... I did that for a few hours before the boss said we need to run errands. Running errands is AWESOME. Only because that means I get to ride on the back of his moto (mo-ped) throughout Barcelona. So amazing. I think that's gonna be my next purchase (sorry mom).

We hit up lunch with my program doing the typical 230 lunch of el menu al dia. We had some traditional food, like pan con tomato. ...

... I assumed he ran the hostel) knows people at a bunch of different clubs and bars, so thanks to him, it was straight in with no issues. Entry was 14€ which included a drink, and what a drink that was. Red Bull and vodka, and because pretty much everywhere in Europe is free pour, not precise measurements, the glass was nearly three quarters vodka, and then they just give you the can of Red Bull. As the night proceeded, the club was starting to get really ...

... the chef made it in a huge dish, enough to feed about 30 people. It wasn't that tasty though, a bit bland- needs vegeta or something as a stock. We were also able to taste many tapas including potato bravas which was excellent. Met up with a mate I hadn’t seen since year 9 in Albany.

We were there during the Euro ...

    What a great place. The rooms are very attractive with beautiful bathrooms. From the minute we entered, the people were friendly and helpful. The location was perfect for walking through the most vibrant area of downtown Barcelona. We had breakfast and internet access included. Life is good. Stay here!

    After a misunderstanding with the bellman and a 50 euro charge to use the Internet, John spends the night trying to find a solution. He makes an appointment to speak with the hotel manager, Ronny Maier, who proceeds to make it all good. We are now happy.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Renaissance Barcelona Hotel

    AC was brilliant

    from

    I couldn't reccomend this hotel enough! The rooms were small but well decorated, the best thing about our room was the luxury marble bathroom, the free mini bar was re-stocked daily, although it only contained two beers! the rest was juice. Breakfast was excellent, it was in a sophisticated resteraunt and came with cooked breakfast, fruit, cereal, pastries and meats. reception staff speak good english but in the resteraunt we had trouble ordering. the location is excellent in a sidestreet just off passeo de gracia which is excellent for shopping, (has louis vuitton, chanel and burberry just round the corner) we got a deal for 140 pounds per room per night inc breakfast so its worth shopping around.

    Great Location

    from

    After reading some of the reviews, my husband and I decided to spend 2 nights there, 27-29Oct 2003. We were not disappointed. The location is great, staff friendly and helpful. Rooms are comfortable and very clean...free minibar ! Nice marble bathroom. Breakfast on 2nd floor, a good start to the day... However we were surprised to find out upon check-in that our room rate EUR182.60/double occupancy did not include breakfast..when we thought it did, according to the internet site ( showing the same rate ) we checked prior to booking through our tvl agt. So make sure to see that breakfast is included (in writing upon confirmation) before you leave.

    Still I recommend the hotel to anyone.

    Catalonian Comfort In Barcelona

    from

    We were pleased we had chosen to stay at the AC Diplomatic Hotel.

    Wonderful hotel, fabulous location.

    from

    If you go to Barcelona, stay at this hotel. We've been there several times in the past two years (most recently in June 2003 which is when we stayed at the AC). We've stayed in the most expensive hotel located in the same general location as the AC and would pick the AC again in a heartbeat. It's a new, high tech interior (not quaint or historic), but very beautiful and comfortable. We got it at a very good price for the location and considering that hotels in Barcelona are just expensive as a general rule. You will love it.

    Summer In Barcelona

    from

    Just back from Barcelona staying at the AC Diplomatic. Stayed tow nights, 7/22 & 23. Hotel is great and centrally located. Very modern hotel that is billed as a business hotel but is great for the vacationer. Hotel staff is a big plus! I asked for their recommendations where is a good restraunt to eat at. We were given a place where locals & tourist visit and food was very good. I have friends who were not this lucky! Air conditioners were very well and the stocker mini-frig is a great plus. The morning complimentary breakfast is well stocked and we americans can have the bacon and eggs.

    Give yourselves a treat and book the AC Diplomatic!

    If it is location you want this hotel has a great one. One block from everything. A business hotel, not a resort. The service is great, room very nice, breakfast buffet included and good. They are on top of their game and do a good job. Barcelona is wonderful and a great Topas bar is 1/2 block from the hotel.

    Excellent Location, Very Nice Hotel

    from

    I stayed at the Diplomatic for 2 nights in May 2003 along with 2 business colleagues. All three of us thought this was an excellent find. The hotel is relatively new, the rooms are very nicely furnished and have broadband connection for internet access. There is no real business center in the hotel, but the front desk staff is extremely nice and helpful. There is a small gym on the 8th floor with a couple of bikes, treadmill and some free weights. There is also a small outdoor pool on this same level with ample area for sunning on lounges, with quite a nice view over the rooftops of the city. The hotel's central location cannot be beat and is within minutes of the main business districts as well as shopping, while still only 30 minutes to the airport. There is a restaurant on the 2nd floor that also serves a breakfast buffet in a pleasant high windowed room overlooking the streets below. The hotel appears to be popular with both business people and tourists, though I would not characterize it as a tourist oriented hotel. We would definitely stay there again.

    Very Nice Hotel

    from

    We stayed at the AC Diplomatic for four nights in late April, 2003. The had a superior room which was very nice and very quiet. The rooms are decorated in a contemporary decor with very elegant marbel bathrooms. The best part about this hotel is that it is located very close to the main shopping area and the Gaudi museum but not right on the main streets. This kept down the street noise which is a problem at alot of hotels. I would strongly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Barcelona. Also, be sure to check around for rates. The weekend rates are lower than midweek.

    The best option in Barcelona ( for the best budgets...)

    from

    The location is Great ¡ Simply, the best location in Barcelona. Near the wonderful Batlló house, just one street away¡ Gaudí's Pedrera is just 3 blocks away.Staff , simply great. Helpful, and smiling all the time. always ready to help and always available. The rooms are ultramodern and the hotel has a terrace with superbviews of the entire city. Great views from the swimming pool , 8th floor. I enjoyed the hotel, very much. I repeat, the staff is great¡ The hotel is not cheap, considering is one of the best hotels in town, but anyway, their rates could be even higher as is the best option in town to make tourism or business.

    Exellent

    from

    The AC Diplomatic provided all the best for our family's visit to Barcelona. It was in an excellent location, very near to moderniste landmarks, many restaurants, tapas bars, great shopping, transportation, etc. Newly done contemporary decor, marble baths, the place was spotless. Staff was very helpful with everything from parking the car to finding restaurants and giving directions/suggestions for touring the area around. They took great care of us--would love to return. Only problem we had was regulating the heat/air in the rooms--we had to have windows opened because it was between seasons.
