Albert has given a very good suggestion regarding the tourist bus. We
thought it was great, the routes cover all the main tourist spots, just hop
on and off the busses as you please, there is a bus passing each stop approx
every 20 minutes, we paid about 18 pounds for two people for two consecutive
days, sorry no idea of cost for one day.
We have not stayed at a hotel in Barcelona, (we stay a 90 minute train journey away (Cambrils), we have had coffee at the hotel Colon Albert mentioned, we loved the location the staff were very helpful. We were there last May, we tried to book into the hotel for last September but unfortunately the weekend we wanted was fully booked, fiesta weekend. We shall be in Spain for the month of May and also September this year so we shall try to get a couple of nights at this hotel and will report back to the list.
BTW if you have not already guessed we love Spain, the Spanish are lovely people, the food, transport etc. are great. Enjoy.
Keep safe Linda &Geoff Wales
