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.

... embarrassed to be an Asian. I stayed up on this night (Christmas Eve) as Kathy asked me to go to mass with her. Despite being overly exhausted and drizzling rain, I decide to go with her as it is not safe to travel alone in Spain. The Catedral de Barcelona is beautiful and the service is an interesting one despite not being able to understand Spanish. Here the mass is viewed through television screens as there are simply too many people in the church. You ...
... to the beach (Barceloneta) and put our feet in the blue water and grab some food. At this point we were missing some good old American food and so when we walked by a burger joint along the boardwalk we grabbed some lunch. After hanging around the beach and then back to the hotel for a little while we headed out for dinner. On our walk to dinner we saw a couple ...
