Tapas Anyone?

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. …

Barcelona by foot

The Ofelias Hotel, where we are staying, is in a great spot and is only 20 minutes walk from Place de la Catalunya, the heart of the city. It is in such a good position that we have a huge shopping centre across the road from the hotel - called Las Arenas Barcelona Shopping Centre - which used to be a real bullfighting arena. Now the only fighting that goes on in there is AJG trying to keep the Officer-in-Charge out of there. We spent some time wandering around there after we ...

Legend of the seas: Barcelona

... Rock Cafe our meeting point for the coach. We go back to the ship and I feel disappointed that Barcelona wasn't what I expected it to be, I really didn't catch the drift of the Spanish spirit. The city was very much the modern taking over the old, all about work and not much about play. The art did not appeal to my tastes, I felt there was a lack of authenticity. I did like the food though, definitely the highlight along with the inside of that cathedral. Would I come back here, most likely ...

... way around with views in every direction. The most interesting ones were towards the palace and the light show, and also down on the Plaça d’España itself. We eventually decided that we should head back to camp to get some rest for the next day.

February 17

We headed in to town to do one of our guidebook’s walking tours in the morning. We set off and soon found the street we were meant to be walking down. It was packed with people and we ...

... 1326 by James II of Aragon for his wife Elisenda de Montcada and the queen moved there to join a community of Poor Clares after her husband’s death the following year, although she actually lived in a palace annexed to the monastery.

The monastery was declared a national monument in the early 1990s and is now also a part of the city history museum of Barcelona.

Our first priority upon arrival at the entrance was to quench our thirsts and the staff directed us ...

    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!

    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.

    The room was very nice indeed with a very large comfortable bed and a lovely modern green marble bathroom. There were two armchairs, a coffee table, desk and plenty of storage space. The lighting was excellent and a CD/radio was provided. The free water, juices and beer in the fridge were very welcome!

    The location is excellent - very close to Casa Batllo and easy walking distance to La Predera, Las Ramblas and other Modernista sites. Many restaurants and bars are close by.

    Minus points - the airconditioning did not work very well and even though a technician was promised to fix it, it didn't happen. Also, our door key had to be reprogrammed and one day we were not provided with enough towels for two people.

    Minor grumbles though and I thoroughly recommend this modern stylish 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.
