Barcelona Hotel Stays

Barcelona is one of the great Mediterranean cities. Set between the mountains and the sea, the capital of the autonomous region of Catalonia is a rare and very popular city. Barcelona has entered the new millennium as one of Europe’s most popular short break destinations. Barcelona, the capital of the Catalonia region, is one of the most beautiful and vibrant cities in Spain. This vibrancy will become obvious as you tour the colorful Gothic Quarter and as you savor the beautiful panoramic view from the top of Montjuich. No tour would be complete without visiting Gaudi's fabulous Guell Park declared an artistic monument and world heritage site by UNESCO.

Barcelona Hotel Stays at a snap of your fingers

There are many kinds of accomodations for everyone s holiday stay in Barcelona, Spain like hotels ranging from five to three stars, hostels, youth hostels, Barcelona Hotel Stays and apartments. But what I really understand for the word holiday is having everything at a snap of your fingers and here is how you can get it.

Your holiday plans are set on Barcelona, and before heading into the busy city to enjoy all the cultural and architectural delights it has to offer, I recommend the following itinerary which I have personally done twice ( and hope to do a few more times). When arriving at the El Prat Barcelona Airport, you can get a special transfer which will take you directly to your Barcelona Hotel Stay at the fantastic theme park called Port Aventura. If you are planning to travel to other places and have decided on a car hire, remember that Europcar has special prices for vacationers staying at Port Aventura. You will have previously chosen one of these wonderful four star hotels, each uniquely decorated and offering a package deal of hotel lodging and breakfast, entrance tickets to Port Aventura and also to the Carribbean Water Park ( Caribe Aquatic Park ).

The Portaventura Hotel is nicely decorated in a Mediterranean colonial style, The El Paso Hotel intricately shows the pre-Colombian and Mexican decor and the Caribe Port hotel is the biggest swimming pool with white sand in the world. You are not going to get this type of Barcelona Hotel Stays even booking the best ones right on the waterfront. At the highest season which is categorized as A , one night with two days in the park could cost about 218 euros single and 136 double with a child for 68 euros. There are combinations of 4 people in one room including child and longer stay offers. At the El Paso Hotel, in the lowest season, still being able to enjoy very favourable Barcelonian weather, 2 people would be about 84 euros and a child 42. Can t beat that! Enjoy the parks fully and snoop around and relax completely at these magnificent hotels in Barcelona.

Other Barcelona Travel Options

When I went mad and stayed at the Arts Hotel in Barcelona. I wanted to have a perfect view of the marina port area and was told that any of the suites, splendid double rooms or luminous duplex apartments would give me that pleasure. I was catered to with its friendly, well-trained staff and incredible facilities. As a last effort I had my taste buds tickled at the Goyescas restaurant. Everything on the menu was teasing so I tried the house specialty and was recommended an exquisite wine to accompany it.

After working hard on a few projects, I was tempted to go back to visit the new port area in Barcelona, and as I wanted to get more details on the Barcelona Hotel Stays I went straight for the three star Montecarlo hotel located on the Ramblas Promenade, well known for being lined with flower stands. This medieval 14th century building has been newly renovated and decorated but always respecting the original architectural features. This time I concentrated on the complete buffet breakfast and its central location to be able to walk into the centre, to the port area and to get a glimpse at the crazy nightlife in the Exaimple area.

Barcelona has been recognized as one of the most vanguard places for hotels and gastronomy. Therefore, the tourist bureau and town hall of Barcelona has decided to make the period from March 2005 to March 2001 - 23 a national and international promotion of Catalunya and its rich fresh products. Some of the restaurants promoting these products like the shop Can Ravell ( an excellent delicatessen ) or Club del Gourmet ( coffee, tea and sweets) are near the two Barcelona Hotel Stays

Gaudi and Picasso, two of the greatest innovators of their time, have left behind numerous treasures for the discerning tourist to discover in Barcelona. Visit Gaudi's fantastic Guell Park which has been declared an artistic monument and world heritage site by UNESCO. The Picasso Museum, which exhibits works from the "blue" and "pink" periods of this world famous painter, will finish off an enthralling tour.

It's more than likely that you'll be staying near the Ramblas on your stay in Barcelona.  It will be central to your daily activity and nights out.  It is a long boulevard which joins the Columbus monument by the port to Plaza Catalunya. 

All day long you'll find all kinds of buskers and mime artists in action as well as stalls selling flowers, newspapers, birds and rabbits.  Look out for Palau de la Virreina, a grand 18th-century rococo mansion, which is next to the Boqueria market.

The market (Mercat de la Boqueria) is well worth a look and is also a good spot to visit at breakfast time for excellent tortilla at one of the internal bars near the back.  Further south is Barcelona's Opera house (Gran Teatre del Liceu) after which the Ramblas begins to get seedy as you approach the sea with peep shows and the like.  La Rambla ends at the Columbus Monument which you can go up in a lift for spectacular views up the Ramblas and across the harbour.
