    The place is a mess. First start with, there is no elevator from street to the reception. Elevator from reception fits one person only.
    ceilings of the floors are all fallen and covered with white fabric to fool the customers. Rooms are extremely old and no repair have been done to them. Beds are not real beds are boxes covered as beds. I woke up at 2 AM going to reception asking for a room change and they said no vacancies and still charged me in full for the room that caused me an my wife back ache. No reply to my email complain. Keep your sanity and do not get close to this one.

Should we buy train ticket from Madrid to Barcelona on line or we can get it when we are there?

by kornhill

Just wondering, should we book the train ticket from Madrid to Barcelona on line or we can easily get it when we are in Madrid? What if I want to take the Express train, do they sell out fast?

Thanks.

by Belsaita

I guess by the Express train you mean the high-speed train (AVE)

there are so may trains a day than unless you are traveling on peak season and the hours most used by business travelers... is is unlikely you find them sold out

however... if you buy the tickets in advance trough renfe.es you can save up to 60% of the price ('web' fare) or 40% ('estrella' fare) :)

If you go to the station in the summer months to buy the ticket, be ready for a very long queue! I purchased my ticket on line (now that it works well) for that reason.

Check out www.renfe.es for thec day you want to travel, and search the Tarifa Web options. Advance bookings can attract a 60% discount on the single fare. Last minute bookings, if seats are available, a 50% discount. But ONLY via the Internet. Otherwise standard fares apply!!!

Travel Tips for Barcelona

Palau de la Musica

by m-joy

This Palau demonstrates the modernisme-architecture apart from Gaudi’s work like no other building in Barcelona.
Domenech i Montanar constructed this Palace in 1905-1908 with a fantastical façade including bricks, busts and mosaics. Unfortunately I didn’t manage to go inside as the guided tours were full for days. So book in advance.

Good Food in BCN!

by KimBCN

I live in Barcelona and would like to give some tips for people who come and visit the city and want some REAL typical BCN/Catalan food. The area around La Rambla is fantastic to take a stroll, but it's a definitely a no-go area when it comes to food! In the small streets of the Barrio Gotico there are some nice places, but the Eixample, Gracia and Sant Gervasi offer a lot more. If you want to eat tapas the right way, La Cerveseria Catalana (Rambla Catalunya), TapaTapa (Passeig de Gracia), Lizarran (Typical Basque tapas) or Irati (Calle de la Palla) are the places to go, NOTE: do not always expect nice silverware or extremely friendly service, it's tapas we're eating folks, not dinner :-). Be aware of the fact that practically all restaurants in Barcelona (and the rest of Spain for that matter) offer a "MENU A MEDIODIA" (lunch menu from 14:00 to 16:30) which is a very economic way to try typical Spanish dishes. For sandwiches, do not go to chains like Pan&Co or Bocatta, but go and find one of the smaller bakeries such as Moli Vell or any place that puts FORN on it, and you won't be disappointed, Bopan on Rambla Catalunya/Calle Provenza is my personal favourite, not cheap, but real value for money! There is another top classc place on Rambla Catalunya, just before getting to Placa Catalunya. For pizzas, go to "Al Passatore" on Via Laietana, La Bella Napoli on Calle Casanova, Little Italy in the El Born area. For good paella's, Elx is one of the best places (there is one on Calle Vila i Vila in the Poble Sec area, and another one in the Maremagnum). For Barcelona's famous seafood, Botafumeiro is the place to be, it is very expensive though (80 E pp). But there's more, The Lobster House on Calle Paris/Calle Aribau is perfect to enjoy some nice fresh prawns or Lobster (what's in a name?). Near the Sagrada Familia is a place where all kinds of seafood and shellfish are actually "swimming around" in aquariums, so you can pick the ones you want to eat, and they will be prepared for you right there!

Good walking shoes and a wind breaker

by bpwillet

Not so much that you woudl be bogged down with. The stairwells can be tiny and the metro stations are only so big. I was there during the winter. It was a lot more mild than what I was used to in England but it is still quite windy and can be quite chilly. It also can be quite cloudy at times. But when the sun is out and you are walking around, you will be glad to have comfortable layered clothes that you can easily remove. There are plenty of pharmacies around for any kind of medicines. But they have sporadic hours. Any corner market may be able to provide you with some various toiletries if you are in need. In general, pack with what you are comfortable with. Nice clothes to go out would be a good idea. Many places will not allow "trainers" into their clubs or bars.

***PALAMOS***

In barcelone U...

by ger4444

***PALAMOS***

In barcelone U can find near the Arc the Triumph a central busstation. Here u can buy bustickets for several destinations outside the city. Buy a ticket for Palamos then. It's a fishermen's village some 150 km above Barcalone. The thing that makes this little village interesting, is it's authentic Catalan fishermen's life. Near the villge harbour there's everyday lots of activity: fishermen bringing out their fish, sreaming at the top of their longs to sell their fish and at sunday you see them dancing the sardana at the local marketplace. Espsecially in june and july they get very active: in july there's a festival in Palamos with big parades and great fiesta's. They carry a Maria stutue along in the parade, that goes it's way through the village, and finaly lands in the harbour, where they put the Maria statue on a boat. With loud claxon-sounds and bells, this boat gets on sea, followed by a procession of other boats, that make deafening noice. This whole scene is a part of a very old tradition, that has as goal to please Maria in order to have a good fissing year. At night the fishermen, traditionally, come together at the several streets in the old village, to have some cool serveca and celebrate. Traditionaly these fisherman are the elder ones, who have been at sea for many decades, so that they have a lot of story's to tell about their adventures on sea. t Since ages, they do this by singing about it, in catalan language, while playing the guitar. These elder fishermen call themselfes hablaneros, and nowadays they still perform their songs at the streets and pubs of Palamos. It's of coures, nowadays a ltllte bit more touristic though, but it still is very charming.
The village of Palamos itself is an old medieaval one, with small little streets, climbing up the hill, on which the village is located. U can find many little shops in the streets and many bistro's, where u can order some typicla Catalan plates or paella if u want so. Unfortunately, the last 15 years the town has become very touristic, so that soem of its original charme has been ruined (for example by big, modern boulevards and big flatblocks).
Yet, the village has beautifull surrondings with picturesque landscapes. The town that is located next to Palamos f.e. is set in a beaufill scenery: see the photgraph. This little town, is called Cologne, and hasn't canged a bit during the ages. It's a lively place with a very old history.
So, I recommend you to stay a few days at Palamos, and hire a mountainbike (there are many possibilties for renting bikes). From Palamos, there are a few intersting spots, that you can reach very easily by bike. You find yourself then biking through a magnificant, varying landscape, with grand meadows, yellow fields, mediterian forrests and little medeaval villages. When biking through this eraea, make sure you get to see two of these little villages in particular: Pals (1 hour from Palamos by bike) and Ulastret (1.5. hour) The former is well known for its famous catalan mediavel architecture; in fact it's one of the few villages that have managed to conservate its original medeavel town view. Its only accessible on feet. (cars can't enter it's small streets and steps!)The latter one is a village, very charming, for it seems as if time has been at a standstill over there. You see a sheppart walking with his sheeps on the marketplace. When you yourself enter the village, the old inhabitants of the village spy on you from behind their windows, as if they have never seen some one from ouside the village! The village itselfe is enourmous quiet, it's as if its a ghostown. (and it wasn't even siesta, at the moment i was there!) This little town has a serene atmosphere and is an outsanding icon of catalan provincial life! (if you need more info for lodging/hiring bikes/restaurants etc: see www.palamos.org

nice lokal market with a lot of good things....

by shirinyaisa about Mercat galvany

A lot of very good food.

Tip: have a coffee or something else in one of the little restaurant inside the market.

Buy flesh or fish at the market and ask in one of the restaurants to prepare it for you. It will be done how you like it partless expensive. 1 Kg tomatoes for 8 Eurus
