La Rambla- The Street of Variety

La Rambla is without a doubt one of the most popular streets in Barcelona. Located in the very heart of Barcelona, the lively environment is likely to pull you in along with the millions of travellers that visit every year.

Along this 1.2 kilometre walk, you will encounter many different restaurants, fashion stores, entertainment and much more…

However, here are some places we recommend our guests to visit near La Rambla:

Museum of Barcelona History

Address– Museu d`Història de Barcelona, Plaza del Rey, 08002 Barcelona

This museum is located just five minute walk from La Rambla and a 13-minute walk from the hotel.

Description– Just because you are on vacation, it does not mean you should not learn something new. This museum gives you an exciting opportunity to see how locals used to live centuries ago. The variety of exhibitions at the museum will leave you in awe and is an unforgettable experience for Mum, Dad, and the kids.

Barcelona’s Wax Museum (Museu de Cera)

Picasso Museum

Address-Carrer Montcada, 15-23, 08003 Barcelona

While this museum is not directly at La Rambla, it is very near it. The museum is a 15-minute walk from the hotel and 10 minutes from La Rambla.

Hotel Ginebra in Barcelona Spain……..or Catalonia?

As you may already have heard through ample media coverage, Catalonia and specifically Barcelona are going through discussions with central government of Spain in Madrid regarding the desired independence of Catalonia by about half of the population of Catalonia.

How does this affect you?

We are  happy to inform you that after after the referendum on October 1 that has been organised by the Catalan Generalitat was held, the situation in Barcelona has returned to normal . Therefore, the political situation should not affect you in any way and you are once again able to appreciate and visit the many wondrous attractions this incredible city has to offer.

Here at Hotel Ginebra our position regarding a possible independence of Catalunya remains neutral. We are happy to be fortunate enough to run a hotel in Plaza Catalunya, the central square of Barcelona, (currently in Spain).

 

What can you do?

Barcelona is currently the third most popular tourist destination in Europe and understandably so. There is something here for everyone: the Barceloneta beach, the wonderful old town centre, originally constructed by the Romans more than 2000 years ago.

Furthermore, there is the miracles of Gaudi, the world-famous Barcelona architect, designer and furniture maker whose work has transformed the city, such as La Sagrada Familia, Casa Battlo, Park Guell  and  La Pedrera.

Or what about the Picasso museum and the FIRA exposition centre where many world-class exhibitions take place?

In short, at Hotel Ginebra in Barcelona, we continue to concentrate on the job of making our guests happy and to make sure they have a wonderful time here in Barcelona, as always.

So if you are planning a trip to wonderful Barcelona, make your reservation directly at www.hotelginebra.com.es.

Puerta del Angel – Angel’s Gate

Every year, thousands of travellers come knocking at the door of the angels` at Barcelona.

“What is this door and to where does it lead?” You may ask.

The original name of Angel’s Gate is of course in Spanish ´”Puerta Del Angel”. While there is no physical door or gate, Puerta Del Angel is one of the entrance points to the “Barrio Gotico”/ the gothic part of Barcelona.

Along the way, you will find many shops and restaurants and of course many examples of the amazing architecture you can find everywhere in Barcelona.

On your way down the Puerta Del Angel, you will encounter The Barcelona Cathedral. This cathedral has been constructed in the 13th Century, and  has a rich history. Allthought not one of the most famous landmarks of Barcelona, a visit is highly recommendable.   Due to your incredible strategic advantage of booking your stay at Hotel Ginebra, Puerta Del Angel is just a two-minute walk from the hotel!

 

And of course…

Do not let us tell you all about it, come and find out about the beauty of Barcelona yourself!

Plaza Catalunya, the heart of Barcelona

Where is a better place to stay than the very heart of a city?


The heart of the city is exactly what Plaza Catalunya is to Barcelona. One of the main reasons why is because of its location.

Plaza Catalunya is not only the most important square of the city,  it is also the most central point of Barcelona!

Being located directly at Plaza Catalunya gives you the opportunity to be within reasonable distance to all of the cities attractions.

Furthermore, Plaza Catalunya gives you the opportunity to access many different transportation services (all metro lines, buses and taxis). However, many of the attractions are just walking distance away, while other attractions are a  quick direct metro journey away.

The other reason it is said that Plaza Catalunya is the heart of the city is because there is always a lively atmosphere and “the beat of the city”. All year round there are numerous events that take place exactly at Plaza Catalunya.

Even without any events, Plaza Catalunya gives you the opportunity to visit every type of store you may be interested in; from designer brand outlets in Corte Ingles to electronic hardware stores such as Apple Store and Fnac. Furthermore, restaurants can be found on every corner from HardRock Cafe to fast food resturants such as KFC and Burger King.

There is truly something for everyone. 

You can take advantage of this location too by booking your stay at Hotel Ginebra in Barcelona!

We hope to see you soon.

About the Birds and Barcelona

It is time to face reality…

Summer is over.

The trees are on the verge of turning yellow, and the birds are flying south. Where exactly in the south are the birds fly to you may ask?
Well of course, they fly to Barcelona! The sun is still out, and the fun is still around!


Over the years, many travellers learned to adapt their travels to where the weather is the best.   In this case coming to Barcelona is giving them the opportunity to extend their summer a couple days (or weeks) more. Barcelona perhaps has the best climate of any city in Europe if you like warm weather.
Not too hot in the summer, never really cold in winter.

What does this mean?
This means hotels are starting to fill up again quickly for the autumn months, and the opportunity to stay in Barcelona is diminishing as every second passes!

What can you do?
Easy…… you already know the answer to this question. Book  your flight now , and secure your stay at Hotel Ginebra before all rooms are sold out!

But!
What you may have not known is that by booking your stay directly on this website (hotelginebra.com.es) you get the best prices available to you on the market.

Come and fly to Barcelona like the birds do and pass your autumn and winter in the third most popular tourist destination of Europe!.

Sunny Barcelona is waiting for you.

La Boqueria – Market with a million different tastes

For centuries, the Catalonian gastronomy has passed on from one generation to next. The popularity of this tradition has grown so much over the years that it has become one of the main tourist attractions of Barcelona.

It is possible to get a taste of this tradition yourself!  The best part, it is all located  in one place and just five minutes away from Hotel Ginebra!

This place is called the Boqueria Market and is located directly off the most
famous street of Barcelona ‘La Rambla’, just a ten minute walk from Hotel Ginebra.

The Boqueria Market is arguably the biggest and most authentic food market in Spain and perhaps in Europe and definitely a true cultural experience for the mouth, nose and eyes.

As soon as you step inside the market and see your first stall, you are likely to take out your wallet and say “TAKE MY MONEY NOW!” or in Spanish “¡TOMA MI DINERO AHORA!”

You will be overwhelmed by the variety and the intensity of the colours and the way the products  are presented!

Not only is this a place where you can you buy fruits and vegetables. You can also have a quick lunch here which is something the locals do often.

Originally a place where locals would come and do their cheap food shopping, La Boqueria has grown to become one of Barcelona’s most popular tourist attractions!

BUT!

Do not let us tell you all about it, come and experience the beauty of the Boqueria yourself!
