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.

To cross the language barrier, playing "pictionary" sign language sometimes ...
... Lots of curves, waves, spinal staircases, columns that lead to tree type branches, modern stained glass windows and an interesting ceiling with flower shapes...maybe just look at the photos. So much to look at yet still peaceful, and even a service being held while we were there. Nic and I then went to the Aquarium...sorry Lonely Planet but we disagree with ...
Last night was interesting. First of all, we are about 20m away from Las Ramblas, so those of you who know Barcelona at all will know that it is a very busy touristy area, which means it was NOISY. The people in the streets along with the garbage truck and street sweeper was pretty loud...but only until 4 am. :) Regardless, I may have been the first of the three of us asleep last night. I was awake around ...
