TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Urquinaona Barcelona
Great location next to a metro stop, and only a 2-minute walk to Placa Catalunya. Extremely varied and generous breakfast by Spanish standards, with excellent coffee, assorted fruit and pastries, cereal, juice (instant), Spanish omelet, and sandwiches. The rooms have a modern decor, but the renovations were poorly done. Nice staff.

... the tour.
The east side was vastly different to the west. The west was filled with ancient architecture and style while the east showed how the average Barcelonian lived including their love of soccer as we passed the massive football stadium. We passed buildings in need of work – was this the real Barcelona?
Looking down from our comfy roof top seats, we could see some of ...
Its really easy to forget to write. Writing is like a good habit, hard to keep up. Over the last few days, I've just been chilling with my parents. Its good to see them. We are spending the next 2 weeks together and we are all heading down to Valencia and Madrid. Last night we went to a great restaurant called Chez Cocco. Its a fancy provencal French chicken rotisserie ...
