Un séjour superbe dans l’H1898. Du déjeuner le matin bon et varié, idéal pour démarrer les promenades dans Barcelone. La Piscine et le spa, faits pour se détendre au retour avant de profiter des nuits dans les petits troquets typiques de Barcelone. Une chambre propre, calme, confortable. Bref, mon seul regrets ? n’être resté que 2 jours ! Mais promis, je reviendrais…

Seventeen years after the inauguration of the Barcelona Centre for Contemporary Culture (CCCB), the venue is adding the finishing touches to its extension with the opening of the Teatre CCCB, a product of the revamped Antic Teatre de la Casa de la Caritat.
The new venue, which is connected to the current building by an underground corridor, has two multi-purpose rooms, the Sala Raval, on the first floor with seating capacity for 170 people, and the Sala Teatre, on the second floor, with room for 600 standing spectators and 450 seated spectators.
The rehabilitation work made the most of the remains of earlier buildings, the old theatre designed by Josep Goday in 1912, and the façade of a cloister in the old Casa de la Caritat. It is also equipped with escalators, one of the characteristic features of the CCCB’s main building.
It also has a new entrance, at Plaça Joan Coromines, where the new theatre, painted white, invites comparison with another white building, that of the MACBA.
The first activity it is to play host to will be the Kosmopolis literature fest, which starts on Thursday 24 March.

This year’s Maria Canals International Music Competition takes place at the Palau de la Música Catalana, from 18 March to 1 April, and at several iconic sites, streets and squares in the city.
During this period, some hundred pianists from 27 different countries will be taking part in the competition and offering concerts throughout the city as part of the Maria Canals OFF-Competition.
One of this year’s notable novelties is the piano to be played by the finalists for the 57th Competition. It is a new CFX model, a 2.75 metre-long grand piano, which Yamaha has been working on for the last 19 years and which audiences will be able to hear for the first time in Spain during the Maria Canals Competition.
This year marks the first Maria Canals Competition not to be attended by its creator, Maria Canals i Cendrós, who died last July at the ripe old age of 96. This year’s competition is therefore aiming to pay a special tribute to its creator through an exhibition entitled A life in Music and a tribute event at the Palau de la Música.
This programme will kick off at Plaza Reial, where on Friday 18 March, OFF Maria Canals has organised a twelve-hour marathon in collaboration with the La Reial ens mou association.
Thank you all for such a amazing stay at your hotel,it was perfect from the start to the finish.
Its was my husbands 50th and the time was well spent in your wonderful city!

Winter is ending and spring is about to be sprung. Thanks to the arrival of good weather, during this season it’s much easier to feel like going out and doing activities in the great outdoors.
This makes it an ideal occasion to make the most of the free activities, open to all, organised by the urban hiking group Barnatresc, with the exercise offering benefits for your health.
Indeed, hiking is a great way to improve people’s health and foster sporting spirit and culture, since walking is the most natural activity for the human body and is one that is highly accessible for people of all ages.
Plus, whilst it can be enjoyed in its traditional setting, in the heart of nature, in its urban form it is ideal for people who have neither the time nor the means to go walking far from the city.
The next urban hikes on the calendar are the Olympic Route, on 20 April, the walk from the River Besòs to the River Llobregat, on 17 April, and the Gràcia walk, on 15 May.
We stayed in Hotel Barcelona Universal for two nights. We were three couples stayig in three rooms and all of us were impressed. The rooms were perfectly clean and we really had all the amenities we expected.
For me a good breakfast is very important for a happy start in the morning and I found everything I wanted on the buffet. The staff at the reception was very friendly and helpful, too. If I went to Barcelona again, I’d definitely stay in Hotel Barcelona Universal again.

We recently stayed at the Hotel Jazz and found it to be an excellent hotel.
The room was extremely clean, comfortable and quiet considering the central location. It was also very safe, since keycards were required to access the elevators.
The staff were always available to help us when required. I would have no hesitation staying here again or recommending it to friends.
