Barcelona after Cruise

Recommended Posts

We are spending two nights in Barcelona after a Cruise. The Hotel Barcelona Cathedral was recommended to us.
Hotel Barcelona Catedral
Carrer dels Capellans, 4
08002 Barcelona
Is this is a good location? Is it within walking distance of sites and restaurants?  Thank you!

I consider this an excellent location to base yourself when in Barcelona.  I've stayed twice at the Regencia Colon Hotel which is a block away.  You're very near the Cathedral, which is a nice place to visit.  And there is a public square in front of the Cathedral which offers space to people watch.  You'll be within easy walking distance of La Rambla (with all of its activity), Placa de Catalunya, the Gothic Quarter, etc.  Lots of shopping and restaurants and places to choose from.  Also you'll have easy access to the metro via short walks.  For places like Sagrada Familia and Parc Guell, you'll probably want to take the Metro or a taxi.  I love the location, personally.

Great location. Free wine and snacks at 5pm, very good breakfast.

 

If you are there when they offer their free guided walks they are very good. After many visits, we still learnt some new info.

 

The guide told us about free entry to the city hall on Sunday morning too, which was worth visiting.
