Walking time to Rambla de poble nou

by enquire

How long will it take to walk to Rambla de Poble Nou from Holiday inn Express on C/Pallars and is it safe to take the walk at night?
Is it possible to take the Metro from Llacuna metro Station?
Or is there a bus to take us there and if so which bus?
Thanks to anyone who can reply.

Hi! I can see this hotel from my kitchen window!

>>> How long will it take to walk to Rambla de Poble Nou from Holiday inn Express on C/Pallars?
2 minutes at a veeery slow pace. 1 minute walking fast ;)
The hotel is 1 block from Rambla del POble Nou. However, Rambla del Poble Nou is a quite long avenue, depending on *where* in this rambla are you going, you can walk 40-45 min to its beach end.

>>> and is it safe to take the walk at night?
yes.
I walked alone past midnight around this area too many times to remember. And I can't remember feeling insecure. Funny enough the only time I felt insecure was once at mid-afternoon when someone a bit weird-looking was following me, but this may happen anywhere

>>> Is it possible to take the Metro from Llacuna metro Station?
yes of course it's possible (5 min walk to the hotel). Glories metro station is another option, but a bit more distant (15 min)

>>> Or is there a bus to take us there and if so which bus?
actually a few : 6, 7, 40, 42, 92, 192... but from *where* are you going there?????

check www.tmb.net for transport options

You're welcome!

Travel Tips for Barcelona

where to stay, what to do

by rkearns

fellow solo female traveler here.
i went and it was as safe as any large city can be. just use common sense.
i stayed at the kabul backpacker's hostel just off las ramblas. it's one of the best hostels i've ever been to, or at least it was in '05.

make sure to visit "la boqueria". it's one of the best markets in all of europe. the transportation is great, but it's more of an international city. unlike madrid, you will get a little more watered down version of spanish culture. but it still has lots of great stuff! gaudi, of course, proximity to dali's hometown, the picasso museum, lots of great food, a beach, tons of art and great food.

you're going to have a blast. like the above poster said, it's a good idea (in any city imo) to bring just enough cash for what you need for the day. bring a padlock if you stay in a hostel, so if they don't have the locks for the lockers, you have a way to protect your things. just don't be flashy, carry a purse, like you would in your own hometown, and enjoy walking around. i think it's safe, and i've been all over europe, south america and a small part of asia.

here's the website to the hostel:

Barcelona: A world of food. Dont eat on the rambla

by Shaz68

One of the best things i found when i visited barcelona was that there was such a variety of food from around the world. My husband isnt a big fan of spanish food, but that wasnt a problem because there are loads of restaurants from all over the place. You can get curry, thai, sushi, american, italian.. anything really! We stayed in a hotel in an area called eixample which was particularly good for restaurants and much cheaper than round the ramblas where everything was a bit expensive.
Places id particularly recommend was a jamaican place we visited for lunch called Stush and Teng. We had lunch for about 15 euro each with 3 courses and bread and wine and water and the food was lovely. I found a review of it here: http://www.barcelona-metropolitan.com/reviews/rasta-relief
And we also went for a pizza one evening here which was also lovely and not too pricey for what you got. I found a review for this one too: http://www.barcelona-metropolitan.com/reviews/whats-for-lunch-non-solo-pizza
Hope that helps. Remember dont eat on the ramblas, if you want a cheap meal, hop on the metro to find quality for less.

Sector Naval de Catalunya

by dlandt

This building apprears to be a naval office of some sort. I doubt you can actually go inside, but it is so nice to know that at the foot of Las Ramblas, they actually do perform useful labor. There are security cameras and police about.
