The area
Address
Neighborhood: Barrio Gòtico (Barri Gòtic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this picturesque neighborhood is the very heart of Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas brought to life by the many small bars and local musicians lasting late into the night. Fashionistas will be drawn to Portal de L’Angel, which is lined with well-known brand names and smaller boutique stands.

May not be worth the entrance fee for the average person
Sep 2019
This is one of the strangest art museums I've been in. It seems like a hodgepodge of art... and nothing too spectacular. The best it has to offer are about 40 small bronze sculptures by one of Spain's most famous artist Salvador Dali, probably enjoyable to only Dali fans. In my opinion it is not worth the high cost of admission.

Zone of Hope - temporary virtual exhibition on climate change
Apr 2019 • Friends
Interesting experience using total virtual immersion to get a flavour of what climate change will mean. However, the scenarios (like the flooded Plaça d’Espanya) still seem too much within the boundaries of BAU when in fact it could be far worse due to societal breakdown of norms worsened by climate-induced stress. Experiencing fascism / social violence / mass refugee / lack of food crisis -even virtually- would have been probably too controversial (and not enough ‘entertaining’) but probably more ‘realistic’!

Obviously, the ‘hope’ ending is nearly exclusively focused on the individuals and in an individualistic way. Nothing about the economic system and its values which are the drivers of climate change. What about collective / social solutions to change the system ?

In summary: this ‘entertaining’ virtual experience will appeal to people who love the ‘game’ epoch in which we live in. However, for me climate change is already here and now, every day in the ‘real’ world.

A Waste of Time
Sep 2018 • Solo
I didn't stay for dinner or even appetizers. The front desk staff and server were so snobby that they ruined the anticipation of the wonderful food that I'd heard about. Life is too short to waste time on a place that thinks they don't need clientele or an occasional tourist. Maybe the employees can pay to eat there so the place will stay open.

Really nice once you got to the terrace
Jul 2018
We actually just went to the roof terrace for a drink (didn’t know about the Dali exhibition or would have gone to see it).
There was a lot of faff at the reception desk where they checked if there was a table available for us (there were lots of free tables!!). Also, on a hot day in Barcelona, we had to leave our water bottles at the desk!!
But once we got to the upstairs terrace, it was actually really nice. The staff were very welcoming and, for the venue, the drink prices were reasonable. We had a very pleasant stay there, up above the throngs, while we waited for evening rush hour to pass. Oh, and lots of people were just having drinks!

Fancy place and pricey
Mar 2018 • Friends
It's a really fancy place and you pay the price for the food. But when you pay for the position, the food has to follow: beef steak was good, portion was OK but grilled octopus was a starter dish even though it was listed as main. I was left hungry.

Hidden Dali Treat in Barcelona !
Oct 2016 • Couples
We've visited Barcelona several times and even twice ventured to Figueres for the Dali Museum but that is pretty much a full day trip. Still, if you want a sampling of Dali while actually in Barcelona there is a venue. There are 4 or 5 rooms and even hallways are used as display space. Its layout is such that you think each room is the last but then there is more. There are several hundred prints, dozens and dozens of photographs. ( more than I'd ever seen of Dali before) and few sculptural pieces I'd never seen before. The place lacks the imprint of Dali's design for the layout - the prints are displayed from ceiling to floor in almost every room - but indeed the place is a treat. The biggest problem with the place is finding it. I'd seen a banner on a pole mentioning a Dali Exhibition but no one at the hotel could find any info. Of all the hits on the internet only one way down the list finally gave an address. Eventually we found it on a small Calle leading of La Rambla on the opposite side near the Central Boqueria Market; even then there were no signs. Nevertheless, a hidden treat worth the search.

Dali In Barcelona
Dec 2016 • Solo
If you like surrealistic art, don´t miss this museum. But maybe don´t make it a family visit because much of these works are subtantially erotic. To have the wavy designs by Gaudi and Dali in the same city is really exciting. In a addition to a host of engrossing sculptures, you can view lots of watercolors, sketches, drawings, engravings, as well as works in ceramic and glass. Above the museum is an exhibition and concert venue as well as a trendy Japanese style restaurant. Check for what else is happening while you are there. This place is close by the Cathedral at Place Nova. It´s relatively non-descript so you might pass it if you´re not looking out for it. It´s still open in the early evening if you want to visit it then.
