Last time I visited Barcelona I wasn't too sure of the geography of the
city. Of course I used my favourite booking website and got a good deal,
but I was quite a way from the main tourist spots. Luckily, Barcelona's
Metro made it fairly easy to get to Ramblas.
I'm planning to stay in Ramblas on my next trip to make the night last a little longer. I've checked out Hotel
I recall strolling past this place last time and thinking it looked
fine but might be noisy being on Las Ramblas. However the reviews say "
as soon as you fall out of your front door you are in the middle of it,
due to this we were worried about noise but being on the third floor we
heard nothing. "
My wife is a little concerned about theft, as
her purse was stolen last time and street crime is widespread in
Barcelona. We down the Ramblas before and spotted this hotel and I did
think it would be better to be close to the Ramblas and leave everything
in our handy hotel room, except for a few Euro of course! So this time
I'll be staying in the Ramblas. And that makes it easy to get to the
Las Ramblas is easy to reach on the Metro . At the
northern most tip of the Barcelona Ramblas you have metro stop Catalunya
which is serviced by the Metro on both the (Green Line, L3) and (Red
Line, L1). Catalunya is also the point at which you can catch the
Aerobus ( Express bus service to the airport) and the Barcelona Tours
Bus (A Hop on Hop Off Tourist Bus) which will take you around 3 circuits
of popular tourist attractions.
I also want to revisit the magic fountain of Montjuic, and I think I can get there on the Metro:
Placa Espanya (Green Line, L3
) and (Red Line, L1
you only discover places because you are away from the main tourist
attractions. Other times you want to be in the center of the
attractions! As this is my second visit to Barcelona I 'll head for Las
