Choosing the right hotel
 

We stayed for 4 days at the "Catalonia Ramblas" hotel (4 stars hotel)  which is located on 28 Pelai Street only a few meters from "Plaza de Catalunya" and the famous Ramblas.

The area is very attractive (it is also known as the "El Triangle" which is a small shopping center  that has Sephora and Starbacks – so if you come back to the hotel by texi and you don't remember the street name or if the taxi driver does not know where the hotel is you can say "El Triangle").

The hotel is, as said above, very well located, just a few meters from "Plaza Catalonia" which is the center of Barcelona. There is a supermarket near the hotel so you can buy water or snacks and take them to the room. There is a Metro station just near the hotel within less then 5 minutes walk (Metro Catalonia)

The hotel has been recently renovated.  The room is equipped with air conditioning, heating, satellite LCD TV , direct dial telephone, mini bar, safety box (free use),  and Wi-Fi Internet connection.

Breakfast was included in our deal and it was a very satisfying Buffet breakfast (eggs, pastry, cheese, ham, free fresh squished drinks, cornflakes and much much more). The breakfast actually kept us unhungry until around 16:00 p.m.)

The official touristic bus
Barcelona Bus Turisticcity sightseeing we highly recommend it. A fantastic way to tour Barcelona.  Before arriving to Barcelona I thought I would use the Metro. Usually I like to manage on my own and see the city not in a touristic way. But because of the 2009 Flu Pandemic, we decide not to use the metro (too crowded) Figuring out the number of the buswas to much work so we decided to use the Barcelona Bus Turistic and it was a very smart decision. You get to the same places you would go individually anyhow, but in the turistic bus it is so comfortable and easy way. The is another tourist bus operated by a private company. We tookthe official bus.

If you go along the ramblas towards the sea you will find PLAYA ROYAL on your left about 500 meters before the end of the ramblas.
It is a wide and beutifull place with alot of excellent resturant. Just choose according to the length of the line og people who wait to sit and enjoy.
