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.

Day 2. Decided to be totally N. American and have bacon and eggs for breakfast (we were very late out of bed - jet lag). 9 euros (from here on in all prices include VAT, tips and any other euro Surcharges). Fresh orange juice, English back bacon, one egg (sunny side, this is Europe!). Big smiles, no add ons. Did the tourist thing, 20e for a seniors (don't you love that) day pass on the double decker bus. Did 6 hours of exhaustive exploration of Barcelona. Learned how ugly ...
... an absolute magician, and as it turned out, a pleasure to watch! Yes, we were put up in our own apartment, and our first day there Mireia took us on a walking tour - day 1. We went to the beach - loads of boobies and schlogs swinging! Then after a full on day walking, Mireia casually mentions that her boss was able to get us tickets to a Barcelona soccer game that night. It was preseason opening where they were presenting the team and manager for the year etc - sold ...
