You lot all go to Primavera every year don't you? Good.
Can anyone recommend me a nice hotel in Barcelona?
getting an aprtment/flat can be good value.
W hotel or W Barcelona
Quite smart but not massively expensive like the W. I haven't actually been there yet but I'm staying there for a weekend in May, got a cheap deal on lastminute.com. Depends how you define posh-ish really, I doubt it's that fancy but I usually stay in hostels so it looks pretty special to me.
wanna book a twin room though as a friend might come along...it really irks me when it's basically pot luck whether you'll get a twin or double...
I'm sure if you wrote in there that you needed a twin, you'd get one.
Whichever of us is going to be staying first can let the other know if it's any good! (Although, bit late now if it's not, I guess...)
looks good to me, my only reservation being it's a bit of a mission from town. still, the metro is pretty good. AND THAT SWIMMING POOL OMG.
I see you can pay extra to guarantee a view, but who needs to, when you can just go up to that pool? I really hope the weather's good. But Spain in May, I would assume it will be.
kinda scared to look at the prices
how much a night you wanting to pay?
yeah that's a bit outta my budget - 420 euro per night. ah'm oot.
it's not actually for primavera, i just figured there would be plenty of people here who'd been to barcelona.
i'm going for three nights and i guess i'd go up to £200/night if it was really nice..
I think the price I got from lastminute for the Princess was a good 25% or so lower than the listed price.
for Primavera. It looks stunning, 5 stars, it's in the old town, Michelin starred restaurant, lovely roof terrace with glass sided pool.
I was surprised how reasonable it was considering the holes you would stay in London for the same price.
(i only mentioned primavera as i figured loads of people from here go to primavera therefore would have been to barcelona)
I stayed in the "Hotel Gaudi", not really a cheap option though. Right opposite a (lesser known) Gaudi building, just off Las Ramblas, near the Placa Reial.
