One last post on the beauty of Barcelona. There was a mistake with our hotel reservation, it did not coincide with the date of departure. In a convention filled city my travelling companion and I were left to figure out one nights stay. The hotel was nice enough to find us a place across the street. Accidentally, we walked into the wrong hotel, but they had 2 rooms at a good rate so we took them.
We stayed at El Palace. I want to stay there next time … the hotel entrance tells you why … (and at the price of the Hyatt in Toronto). A picture of the lobby from my BB.
A picture from their website …
It would appear that we were very lucky, as the hotel has been under massive renovation. Watch the price sky rocket in 2011. It was nice for a night.
