Honestly, there is so much to see in Barcelona, that I have had very little time to say anything about the Hotel Princess, which we have been staying in for the last two days. The hotel is located off the Ronda Litorial at the intersection of the Diagonal, so it is easy to find. The best time to stay here is on the weekend when you can get a rate of 80 euros, after that it is the standard 130 euros.
Well, you get what you pay for, and then sometimes a little more. There is a spectacular view of the Mediterranean from our room. It is not, and this is important, in a tourist area, but rather it is right by the beach and close to the Metro so that you can get anywhere.
The staff was ever so helpful in recommending a great restaurant, el Asador de Aranda, where Will and I had the best lamb in a Moorish inspired building.
