Hola Barcelona – Photo Diary I

14 December 2014


So I’m finally back from one of the most inspiring trips I’ve done in a while. It had been over four years since I last visited Barcelona so naturally I was quite excited to go back.

You probably remember that not so long ago we were away in New York & Miami. The trip was more “blog orientated ” than fun & play and very far from being as relaxing as I thought. So this trip was a much needed break.


The BCN Princess Hotel


Like with all our trips in general, the choice and location of our hotel is a big priority when making plans.
Ideally, we could have easily settled for one of Barcelona’s many boutique hotels off the buzzing Ramblas or snuggled in one of the cities main streets, but this seemingly convenient option is exactly why we opted for the BCN Princess.

Located on 1st Diagonal Avenue in the Sant Martí district and a stone throw away from Mar Bella beach, Hotel Barcelona Princess is a modern, 4 star hotel offering business and leisure in one package.

Boasting 363 elegant and bright rooms all with superb city or sea views, the hotel offers free high-band wifi access and a minibar in all rooms. The minimalist design of the room, electronically operated devices and beautiful equipped designer glass bathroom with guest robes & free utilities are just a few other aspects that make a stay at the BCN Princess so great.


But the hotel’s best kept jewels are undoubtedly its 2 outdoor heated pools. The first is located on the 23rd floor along with a solarium and an incredible sea view. The second is on the 3rd floor, an area you will most certainly appreciate with its modern gym, sauna and comfortable relaxing area.


Food-wise, the Barcelona Princess Hotel houses 3 restaurants and 3 bar areas on the 23rd, 3rd floor as well as the lobby where you can indulge in local specialities, savor fresh tapas or down a glass of sangria or cool champagne. You will also appreciate a lavish and varied continental breakfast served every morning between 6:30am and 11am.


Over and above the hotel’s impeccable installations, technical resources and a pleasant working environment make it an ideal destination for a business meeting in Barcelona.

The closest public transport heading into central Barcelona and some popular tourist sites is only a block away (Subway station: “Maresme Forum- L4’’).
If you prefer an organized touristic itinerary, then you can conveniently use the Barcelona touristic bus stop just in front of the hotel entrance (green line).

Still not convinced?
Stay tuned for Part II of Hola Barcelona, as I take you on a cultural and culinary journey through the mystic city of Gaudí.
