Where to stay in Barcelona

Because the city's metro system makes traveling from area to area relatively painless, you have more flexibility in choosing a place to stay. Barceloneta, the neighborhood surrounding the city beach is somewhat removed from the city center, making its hotels popular with families. Only a 15-minute walk from the center, Barceloneta has a more laid-back beach atmosphere but still offers several restaurants and entertainment options. Farther away from the beach and closer to the city center, El Born is a charming neighborhood well-known for its restaurants and lively bar scene. Eixample is also popular as it is more central and home to some of the city's best shopping and tourist sites, including La Sagrada Familia. For a more traditional experience, consider staying in the Gothic Quarter, the heart of Old Barcelona. This picturesque neighborhood boasts a tight network of historical architecture with boutique hotels and traditional restaurants.

  • Interesting exhibits with a lot to see however needs improvements/updates. Could be an A+ museum with some updates. Perhaps things are lost in translation but Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig and others were not known as the "3 Monsters", Basketball was invented in the USA (even if Naismith was born and raised in Canada), while very talented with a great career I don't believe Mia Hamm is the greatest soccer/football player in history. There is very little on the winners for the 92 Olympics that aren't of Spanish/Catalan descent. Only a small blurb and fuzzy picture of the Dream Team, however there is a giant picture and a video of Joe Montana playing in the Super Bowl (American Football is not an Olympic sport). The admission price was very reasonable though (5.10 in Euros) and it was very quiet and not at all crowded inside.
  • A very nice experience, a lot of interesting things to see.
  • Moderately inaccurate facts about most north american sports. Not a lot of mention of cricket considering its global popularity. The amount of information severely declines after the 2008 olympics. Not much about London, Brazil, Sochi, and Vancouver. Barely mentioned the 1972 Munich hostage crisis. Kind of funny that they don't consider ice hockey to be Canada's favorite sport. Overall it was good, could use some improvements.
  • Nice place to visit.. tour take like 45 mins, and there is a playing zone at the end.
  • great place to visit
