Barcelona, the place to be this summer

The great Queen’s Freddy Mercury knew what he was singing about with Barcelona. “Barcelona – Such a beautiful horizon, Barcelona – Like a jewel in the sun… Viva – Barcelona.”


Live the life of Barcelona by soaking up its celebrated culture, landscapes and cuisine. For a city famous for so many things –the Gothic Quarter, La Rambla, Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia, its football stadium, a terrific live music scene, Picasso, tapas, beautiful strolls, seafood, architecture and more—you are bound to find something to your liking in this eclectic metropolis.

The place to be

The eclectic and up and coming neighbourhood of El Poblenou contains a diverse mix of residents who come together to produce the most trendy of places. Explore a scope of affordable delicious Catalan restaurants such as Ápat and Senyor Parellada, fun bars including Bar Polaroid and Maumau Undergroud, cafes, enchanting little shops in the streets of El Born, and artists who swarm like flies to decorate the landscape.

Best of both worlds

Not only is all this at your disposal, but at arm’s reach. El Poblenou is not just central to the city, but close walk to the seven main beaches along the four and a half kilometre coast line including the Bogatell Beach and the Barceloneta Beach. Perfect for all those who can’t decide between a beach and a city holiday: if you book a room in our hotel in Barcelona city centre, you can have a cosmopolitan as well as a leisurely experience!


Everyone has different tastes, hobbies, and interests and this is what makes planning a holiday to suit all quite the challenge! But Barcelona is the ideal solution.

From sauntering through the city and sight-seeing in the morning to cooling off in the Mediterranean and savouring a cazuela de mariscos, you can fit a little of each of your interests in every day of your stay. And you’re never very far from a quick tan on one of the EU Blue Flagged beaches (awarded with high environmental standards and water quality) after you get a bit hot from all the activity on offer.

Viva Barcelona!
