    Hotel Glòries

    by

    This is a very comfortable hotel, and the only con you may find is that the city centre is a bit far (20-30 minutes walking). However, it's in a very quiet area, close to Sagrada Familia Temple and there are two metro stations nearby.

    Unique Quality: They serve a good breakfast buffet and offer free newspapers every morning.

    Directions: How to get there:
    - Metro: Glòries (line 1) or Monumental (line 2). The latter is a bit closer, however, from Plaça de Catalunya, line 3 to Passeig de Gràcia, and, after walking for a while, line 2 to Monumental.

clubbin and sleepin in Barcelona

by cristallelabelle

Hi everyone,

I will be in Barcelona in December and am looking at a few hotels. I don't quite understand all of the different neighborhoods of Barcelona (e.g Gothic Quarter, Las Ramblas, Diagonal ??, ...) so I'm not sure if the hotels are in good places.

Has anyone heard of Hotel Expo? It's a four star hotel located at this address: Expo Hotel ,Carrer De Mallorca 1-23, Barcelona. I found it online for $60 and thought that it was a really good price, but is it a good location? Within walking distance to Las Ramblas or any of the monuments in Barcelona. I think it's right next to the main train station, less than a mile from the congress center.

Other than that, I was also wondering about the location of Hotel Glories. I want to be in a fairly safe area that is within walking distance to lots of clubs and shopping and all of the good stuff in Barcelona. My 3rd choice is Hosteria Grau.

Lastly, does anyone know of any clubs in Barcelona that play R&B, hiphop, or pop music? And what is the typical cover charge? Free for ladies?? :) Thanks!

Oh yeah, how late do trains and buses run, just in case I end up at a hotel that's not quite within walking distance of the good nightlife?

Avoid las ramblas late night. Almost got mugged by a gang of 15 year olds! Mar e magnum is complex of night clubs at end of las ramblas- very touristy- also avoid. Ask locals where to go.

In effect, hotel Expo is near to "Sants-Estació". half hour walking to the Rambles. Also you can take subway and in ten minuts you will be in rambles. Fell free to e-mail for more information.
Good trip.

If I was visiting Barceona for just a few days, I wouldn't want to stay in Hotel Expo, neither in Hotel Glories, because they're both not on walking distance of want you want-- clubbing and shopping..
Hosteria Grau is located in a nice street in a lively part of the historic centerl and I believe I heard positive things about the quality of the hotel (hostal..?).

For more about clubbing in Barcelona you can visit:

You'll also find lots of flyers of clubs in clothing shops (for example on calle Avinyo) and cd shops (calle Tallers, close to calle Ramellers where hosteria Grau is located)
