We had booked a different hotel but as we got there they had no recollection of our booking. After lengthy conversations with Travel Republic, they moved us to AB Villadomat.
The hotel was very nice. Room and bathroom were spacious. Breakfast was okay (cornflakes were like cardboard unfortunately), with a good selection of food and fresh baguettes. Maldo who worked at the bar was lovely, he was there in the morning and then late at night still smiling. The only cons were that it would be nice to have tea and coffee facilities in the room.
The hotel is about 10-15 minute’s walk to the nearest metro station or train station. Might feel like a lot, but we found it just about tolerable (in relation to where we should have been staying), as you get the opportunity to see a lot more of Barcelona outside the busy tourist spots. We have done lots of walking anyway so this felt like nothing.
We spent the day on the bus Turistic which was really good. Definitely recommend going to Park Guell and Tibidabo, both weren’t too busy so you could have a look around in a nice relaxing atmosphere. We had a few meals on La Rambla which weren’t the best, would definitely recommend eating in Gothic area or side streets off La Rambla. La Fonda was great, we had a really good meal and the bill was very reasonable – worth checking out, and we wished we had found it earlier in our stay!
