  • Our hotel over looked the plaza and we got to experience it all hours of the day. It was quite at daybreak, bustling at lunch, and filled with groups meeting in the evening. It was a lovely place to e...  more »

  • Placa de George Orwell is a bit of a let down. On the one hand, it's good to see that Barcelona has commemorated Orwell. On the other hand, it's not connected to him at all. The Placa is, apparently, ...  more »

  • Some nice shops and tasty cheap restaurants. Quite hipster. Often local musitians play here too for loose change adding to the atmosphere
  • Lovely little square, George Orwell has important connections to the city, and he wanted the Communists to blow up the Sagrada Familia (I'm with him there). Some brilliant vegetarian offers around the square. Loved it
  • Nice for tapas + a beer in the sun. Lined with cafes. Great Sunday brunch option.
  • Known locally as "Plaza del Tripi" is a common place to sit back an relax some beers, there are plenty of restaurants and food available around at a good price. Still, being in the gothic quarter is a hot spot for Pickpockers so keep your stuff contolled at all times.
  • Homage to Orwell. Good sandwich place.

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.
