    Default barcelona...

    i've book for me and g/friend to go to barcelona for a week next month for her birthday.

    i've never been before so don't know where is nicest to stay. somewhere close to the beach would be nice but also want good accessibility to all the tourist hot spots.

    can anyone suggest websites to book hotels through, not the usual lastminute.com though. it's still a month away so is it wise to wait for the last minute bargains or play it safe as the price isn't going to change that much?

    has anyone been before, what's it like?? i only hear good things about it.

    any info is welcome.

    cheers

    It's a lovely place, especially along the Ramblas, and the Gaudi buildings are amazing, but it's also the pickpocketing capital of Europe, so watch out!

    my wife went there for her hen night. Absolutly loved the place, so much that she wants us to go back 'sober' and enjoy the place properly

    We booked on two occassions, hotels from the British Airways web site and got some real good value quality deals (and you don't have to be flying BA).

    Excellent place and so much to see and do.

    What he said! It's a great place - been three times now. If you like culture/architecture go and see the Gaudi buildings - La Sagreda Familia is just stunning and still being built/finished off, Guell Park (bit out of town), Casa Mila (fantastic rooftop) are the main ones to see. There are others. This web site will show the buildings and where they are located in Barcelona. There are other sites but this one wasn't bad. Just do a Google for Antoni Gaudi.

    Take a trip to the Olympic Stadium, you can get there by a fernicula (mountain railway). Fantastic ride as it passes through the mountain tunnel. You'll see the Olympic Statium and this fantastic bit of architecture - communication tower used to transmit TV/data for the Olympics - still used today. Yes, they're my pictures!



    All I can suggest is get a Rough Guide type book and have a real good look through. I'm afraid I can't suggest accommodation in Barcelona as one of our visits was on a Med Cruise, the other two we stayed outside of Barcelona and travelled in.
