Barcelona's most famous street was once a dry riverbed. Now, La Rambla is a 1200-meter boulevard, and a major draw for visitors. During the day, La Rambla fills with pedestrians, some of which stroll past impressive human statues and artists while others take a break to people-watch while enjoying a drink at one of the many terraces. Housed here is the iconic Boqueria Market that offers one of the most varied and appetizing selections of local produce and specialty meats and treats. While it’s important for tourists to keep an eye on their belongings at all times, this area is most safely explored in the daytime and is a must see for everyone who visits.
Barcelona is a city for walking in the Gothic Quarter so we wandered down ti the harbor. We had a glass of wine and cheese tapas while viewing the yachts. We then walked to the Columbus Monument. While on a very busy intersection, you could still get great pictures. From there, it’s an easy walk north up La Rambla.
This is a plaza with an imposing monument in honour to Christopher Columbus with a beautiful view of the coast of Barcelona, being close to either Las Ramblas (right at the end of this avenue) or Barceloneta, with the beach and the marina. It is worth the visit to know the place and take good photos.
"A small part of Catalonia that is forever Galicia"
reviewed March 14, 2020 by CJE55
Is a Galician restaurant in Catalonia a good idea? On this evidence, yes. I’d never eaten sea urchins before but they were on the menu so I did. They really tasted of the sea. For main courses, my wife had rice with cuttlefish and I had monkfish in shrimp sauce. Both were excellent. The service was charming and the wine...
We had a lovely lunch here whilst wandering around the market! The food was fresh and the portions were good! My husband had the mixed sea food platter for 1 which included razor clams, clams, crevettes, prawns and mussels. He enjoyed it very much! I had the iberico ham with egg and chips which was delicious - lovely runny eggs...
Everything that I ordered, I finished. Bruschetta tapas (w/ ham+ mozz), seafood paella, the daquiri fresa and the Barcelona cocktail. Everything was phenomenal. The food was warm, steamy, melty. The drinks were tasty, cold, and fresh. I will recommend to friends!
We stoped for dinner after visiting the market, 4 adults and 2 toddlers. The food was fresh and tasty and the staff was very friendly and accomodated all our needs - appropriate food for the infants, child seats. They were extra nice with the children, although the children were loud and messy. Prices were also decent. I highly recommend!
Absolutely fantastic hotel! The staff is incredible, the location is awesome, and the rooms are luxurious! If I could come up with more glowing superlatives I'd add them!
Our flight arrived at 6:40 AM from the US so we were at the hotel by about 7:30 in the morning. Check in time isn't until 3 PM which we knew and...
A very warm welcome from the reception staff set the tone for a lovely stay in early March 2020. Conveniently located, this hotel is clean, well maintained and is a calm oasis to the bustle of the la Rambla.
The generous breakfast was a treat not to be missed. The cheese board was impressive and so was the tea selection....
Small luxurious independent boutique type hotel on the middle of La Rambla. Impossible to get a better position for a sight seeing. Despite our room
facing directly onto La Rambla the room was VERY quiet and peaceful, there was no traffic noise. Friendly helpful service. Lovely rooftop terrace.
"Helpful hotel during Barcelona Coronavirus-19 lockdown"
reviewed March 22, 2020 by Voyager117339
Nice small hotel at south end of Las Ramblas. Very nice breakfasts. Room small but pleasant. Clean. Quite helpful staff. Overall, good stay, despite out-world conditions. Can't predict how hotel may be when operating normally with high guest count.
Picked this hotel in a city I had never visited and boy I hit the jackpot! Wonderful employees who gave me a room with a deck overlooking all of Barcelona East to the sea. Watched the W Hotel and the giant Ferris wheel as the sun set. Stayed 5 days but by day two all of the employees knew me...
