TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Solvi Vilanova i la Geltru
Location is very good, very close to beach, and beachside cafes/restaurants, 15-20 min walking distance to train station and old town. Hotel is very nice for a 2 star, with just the stairs looking a bit tatty. Room was clean, but was not cleaned in our stay, despite us putting the please clean room sign out (although this was after about 2pm). Tap water is horrible in Barcelona area - but bottled water cheap to buy. Breakfast fine - ham, croissants, squash, coffee, hot bread, butter, jam, cereals, drinkable water! Was a bit miffed when we were not allowed on the rooftop terrace at about 6pm. We wanted to buy a drink in the downstarirs bar and take it up, but they said we weren't allowed as they had sprayed some mozzie spray... Well this is fair enough for 30 mins, but they said it was toxic all night, which for an open air terrace was somewhat surpsising!! Downstairs is ok for drinking, but was very cold as is in shadow in the afternoon and we could see that lovely sun on the unusable terrace - madness!! I went up to terrace during the day to take a peek and it is really good. However, the staff made up for this annoyance by letting us check out late on the final day. We had been at a wedding, so didn't get in til 6am, so the extra time granted was very welcome and we are incredibly grateful to the staff for this.

We were both really tired today but had to get some washing and motorhousework done before we could sit in the sun. We had a nice long breakfast outside ( and a nice long lunch) then our peace was shattered by the arrival of what we assume to be a school party of Spanish teenagers!!
They occupied some chalets further down from us, girls ...
... there's an old photo of me standing on the steps somewhere!)
The main fašade of this cathedral was only finished in the 1890's. They take a long time to finish things in Barcelona - too much manana?
We finally tired of all the noise and hub-bub and retreated to the very ...
... Rambla - an apparent 'must do' . It is a wide, approximately two kilometre street that has a walking thoroughfare down the middle. It has trees lining both sides of the walking area, with two lanes of traffice on each side of that. In the middle where people walk there are stalls selling everything from gelato and other snacks to silver beet seeds and souvenirs. It's absolutely humming with people. We continue along La Rambla until we spy ...
length to equal the length of the Lourve. And it was all one persons house! Now
it is one of the most famous museums in the world with it’s iconic entrance
through the glass pyramid in the central courtyard. It has over 400,000 pieces
within its walls (some on display and some archived), and is home to the worlds
most famous painting, the Mona Lisa. I made the decision to not actually go
into the Lourve as there were several other places in Paris ...
Monday 4th March. This morning, after saying our farewells to the good friends that we have made at Moncofa, we left for Vilanova i la Geltru which is approx 30miles south of Barcelona. There is another Camping and Caravan Club Rally here which runs from 1st March until 16th May but we are only scheduled to stay here for two weeks before moving on the south of France ...
