An airfare glitch scored my best friend and I nonstop tickets to Barcelona for a steal. With only four days to cover the City of Gaudi, here's what we would recommend to others for a fun and face-paced visit:
Where to stay: We were at a luxurious hotel on La Rambla, the lively, tree-lined pedestrian walkway intersecting the city, just a few blocks from the Mediterranean in one direction and the Raval neighborhood in the other. The rooftop terrace, with a pool deck and open air bar, at Hotel 1898 is the place to be for sunset as the entire city is washed with golden light and music of street performers drifted into the twilight. After long days of sightseeing, the subterranean spa was the ideal book to refresh us in time for nights on the town.
Travelzoo Tip: For our Travelzoo VIPs, 500 of our favorite hotels, including several in Spain, now offer their best rates and complimentary extras any night of the year. Rates start at $175 per night this summer.
