We made it to Barcelona! Flight was an hour late, but arrived in daylight. Took the Aero express bus right to Placa de Catalunya and walked to the hotel via the narrow cobble stone streets. Our hotel gave us a room on the top floor with our own private balcony (15'x15') overlooking the area. The hotel also gave us a small fruit basket for booking directly with them (rather than Expedia). A four star hotel in the Gothic quarter at a cheaper price than in Munich. Can't beat that!
|The balcony even comes with a built in step to look over the wall|
Interesting evening views from our terrace/patio. A bit noisy too. Crowds here are unbelievable - hotel says there is a football (soccer) game tonight. We'll see if there are fewer people out on the streets tomorrow when we go to Gaudi's Casa Mila (La Padrera).
