can anyone suggest a decent hotel near the Port

I would like a suggestion for a clean, safe hotel near the Port

(pre-cruise), don't need anything fancy, but safe, for party of

5 ( probably need 2 rooms). Would greatly appreciate if

anyone can suggest an area where I should concentrate

( don't know area, lst timer to Barcelona). If it is walking

distance to points of interest, or to port, it is even better . Also,

any suggestion for where to visit, and where to eat near the

hotel that you suggest.

Also, we have 2& 1/2 days before cruise in Barcelona, what

would you suggest for our family ( 3 adults and 2 teenagers) to

see so everyone can enjoy. .Also, how do we call US from

Barcelona, no 3G cell phone ?

Thanks for all your input.

I can help with phoning home. Just buy a phone card for a few euro from a news stand in Barcelona and use it on your hotel phone. The card will give you a set of numbers to dial and then it will be like using your normal phone. The hotel will not charge extra for this type of phone call.

Staying at the port is not so convenient for sightseeing, in my opinion.

There are tons of hotel reviews on this site so read some and find one in your price range. I think the area near Placa Catalunya is most convenient for a first time tourist.

yes i do agree, no need to stay near the port. stay near pl. catalunya and you'll be walking distance to many sights (and just a 10 min ride to the cruise port)

near the port you still will need a taxi to the cruise if you have luggage (even the closest hotels are not *that* close to walk with suitcases)

thanks for your reply. Would you recommend a modestly priced one

near plaza Cataluna? ( within $100 US if possible, willing to go up to

$140 or so) . Again, we only need a safe, clean place, no need for anything

fancy. A room that can accomodate 3 people would be great.

thanks so much.

HI, thanks for all the wonderful idea.

As far as the phone cards go, does the same card that you bought in

barcelona can also be used in Italy, or is it all separte. That way, I know

what value I should purchase. ARe there places in the airport that I can

purchase that ?

What is the code you have to dial in first to call back CAlifornia from Spain

and Italy ?
