Cheap hotel with kids?

by robbieswife2b

Hi, we think we can afford to fly to barcelona on 10th may 2010 for 3 nights with our 2 girls (11 and 6). I looked at the Travelodge offer of a room for 35euro per night but it seems to be out of the way. Can anyone suggest somewhere else that is reasonable that is within a mile of las ramblas?

Thanx

Try Arthostal.com. Centric, funny and economic. I am afraid that 35 euro 4bed room is not recommendable for kids. Greetings and have a nice stay in BCN!

We went some years ago to Hotel Internacional - actually ON the Ramblas and nicely situated. It was listed as a 1-star!
Quite basic but perfectly comfortable and a good breakfast. I would go again.

If you street-view Google-Map it, it is covered with netting and scaffolding but the photo is a couple of years old now.
It's right next to the Joan Miro mosaic on the pavement, and the Gaudi dragons on the corner wall of the building next door. The street outside leads through the gothic quarter and you are half-way up/down th eRamblas so the port/seafront is one-way, Placa Catalunya the other. (easy to reach if you want a bus or metro)

Well, I can't reccomend you places (never used a hotel, I live in Barcelona) but I can speak about areas. Arthostal reccomended above is perfectly located for a family with kids, and there is La Ciutadella park very close as a bonus. The site recommended by pedmar is great to find good deals too.

However, I would NEVER recommend anyone staying right ON Las Ramblas nowadays, I'm afraid the area has changed (for the worse) since tango_jd stayed there. It looks that finally the city council is taking some action, but is still not the best place for families to stay.

Oh dear! Sorry then!
It was perfectly fine when I was there - it was a February - so I stand correected - thanks.
It's a sad old world when the thugs and baddies take-over isn't it?

Come the revolution........

Re: Cheap hotel with kids?

by Belsaita

Yes is sad indeed. Hopefully the area will be nice again in the near future, there is already more police around that some months ago.

Hello Robbieswife,
Depending on what your girls like to do, I might be able to offer some specific suggestions. I lived in Barcelona for a year and a half when my 2 girls were about those ages. Most kids are not crazy about museums, but one they might like is the Museu Maritim down near the port at the end of Ramblas. Let me know what they like to do and I might offer some suggestions.

I agree that staying way outside the city is not a good idea. Find somewhere central, around Plaza Catalunya. The city transport is very good and your girls will like riding the buses and metro.

Travel Tips for Barcelona

Thanks to the huge number of...

by Steve-H

Thanks to the huge number of cheap flights now available in Europe we found ourselves heading off to Barcelona for yet more beer and adventures, and it was well worth it.Steff found us a good hostel just off the Rambla in the gothic quarter and we were all set.The Rambla is the main road running up from the port to the Place De Catalunya in the middle of the city and is where most of the night life can be found.For most of the day the Rambla is a teeming market place full of flower sellers,news vendors,pet stalls,souvenier shops and mime artists, it is quite lively, there is plenty to see and plenty to eat and drink in the bars and restaurants up and down either side. In 1992 Barcelona played host to the summer olympics and big money was spent on parts of the city like the port which has restaurants, bars, night clubs,the excellent aquarium and of course the mediterraneans wonderfully blue water.The other end of the scale is the ancient Gothic quarter with its fantastic architecture,narrow streets and olde worlde eateries.A great place to go exploring and the further you get from the Rambla the cheaper it gets.For many people (myself included)some of the best things about the city are the wonderful buildings created by Gaudi, including the outstanding, and unfinished, Segrada familia.The imposing 120m tall gothic church is an on going project still under construction thanks to private donations and is a 'must see' on your tour of Barcelona.There are 11 buildings by Gaudi in the city, all different and all worth a visit, the most unusual and accessible is the Pedrera (head north from the Place De Catalunya)it houses a museum dedicated to the great man.

Catalonia has managed to...

by Bixente

Catalonia has managed to maintain many customs and traditions over the years, which are very common in everyday life.

The most important from a tourist point of view are:

Sardanas: Traditional Catalan dance. People meet in front of the cathedral on Sundays to dance it.

Castellers: The 'castells' are impressive human towers of up to 9 'floors'. They originated in the Tarragona region, although they can be seen in popular festivals in Barcelona, especially during the 'Mercè'.

Saint George (Sant Jordi), patron saint of Catalonia: On 23 April the Catalans celebrate Saint George's day by offering a rose and/or book, and the main shopping streets of Barcelona are filled with book stands.

Eve of Saint John's: On the 23 June, the summer solstice is celebrated with big bonfires, firecrackers and fireworks, and people eat the traditional 'coca de Sant Joan' (a pastry).

La Mercè festival: This is the festival for Barcelona's patron saint, held in the week of the 24 September, the day of La Mercè. All kinds of activities are organized, for all tastes and all ages. Of particular interest is the 'correfoc' (fire-breathing dragons from all over Catalonia), and the pyrotechnical music show (fireworks and classical music next to the Montjuïc fountains).

OF COURSE THERE ARE ALSO PARKS....

by eden_teuling

I would never go for a walk in a park when I am on my own, with 2 or more is better and safer.

Actually everyone recognises you as a foreigner and tourist and.....

The mounted police keeps an eye on everythings and go through all parks....

GAUDI'S PARC GüELL IS SAFE.....there are always so many admirers that no nasty things happen.

See MY TRAVELOGUES for works of GAUDI e.g. PARC GüELL, they will surprise you.....

Shopaholics Must Check This Out!

by monaco05 about Mango Factory Outlet

Any Mango fan would love this place - I think I spent about two hours here while my poor friend sat at a cafe nearby :)

Most of the items here are at normal sale prices. However, you can find the full range of sizes here which is always a problem during their sales. The best buys I made here were - black work pants for 8 euros, sweater with 3/4 sleeves for 10 euros, mini-bag for 4 euros. Could have bought a lot more if I did not stop myself.

Definitely worth a visit, and give yourself quite a bit of time as the shop is pretty big. Nothing much nearby so spend all your time here :)
