Just back from a few days in Barcelona to surprise my lovely friend Mel, who was visiting with her husband Craig.
I flew with Ryanair into Barcelona El Prat Airport and we stayed at the Hotel Ciutat de Granollers in Granollers, about 25 kilometres from Barcelona, as Craig was working in the Granollers area.
The hotel is located about 10 minutes walk from the town of Granollers and seems pretty well set up for business travellers. And by business travellers, I mean men. Which would explain that there's no tissues, conditioner or body lotion in the bathrooms - but there is a razor. And a paper thin shower curtain that likes to adhere to you as you're in the shower.
The hotel is in good condition and is clean. I had a single room, but it had two single beds and lots of room to move. The mattresses were HARD to the point of waking me up at night because I was so uncomfortable. My room had two opening windows (great!) which were a bit hard to manipulate because of the heavy curtains, but I worked out that if you pulled the curtains right to the middle of the window wall, you can open the windows with no problem.
Breakfast was included in my room rate and it was tasty and plentiful, with hot and cold selections, and a decent coffee machine.
There is free wifi in the hotel and free parking outside.
There was a health club and a large, lovely looking pool available, but the weather was less than warm, so we didn't try it.
