This is the time, my friends, to close our latest contest: Win a 2 nights stay in a 4 star hotel in Barcelona. Judging by the awesome response, it looks like Barcelona inspires you like no other city. Okay, maybe it was also because the prize this time, thanks to the Hotel Diagonal Zero, was amazing, but you definitely surprised us with more than 300 comments on our blog and more than 300 comments on our Facebook page.
This time it was really hard to pick the winner. After a few days digging through all your comments I realised that I needed help, so I asked my colleagues at easytobook.com to vote for their favourite comment.
This contest is now closed; please stay tuned for other info and contests!
August is over, and for our latest contest: Win a 2 nights stay in Madrid with 1 ‘like’, it is time to announce the winner:
Congratulations Lena Stein!
Lena, we will contact you soon to inform you about all the details.
Now let’s get back to business, especially for all of you that are not as lucky as Lena this time… No biggie, we have yet another awesome contest for you! First of all, as always, let’s talk about the prize. For the next winner we have a voucher for a 2 nights stay in a 4 star hotel in Barcelona, in the Hotel Diagonal Zero!
Just sleeping 2 nights in a 4 star hotel in Barcelona could be enough, but thanks to the Diagonal Zero we are able to offer you a prize that you will never forget!
Barcelona is one of my favorite cities in the world; it is vibrant, close to the beach, it has great food and wine, it’s cheaper than Amsterdam and there are Zara shops on every street corner. Aside from a very fun weekend getaway, there is also a lot of interesting history to this city. That is why it would be wise to plan your weekend, or if you’re lucky, your entire week, ahead; if you don’t plan some things in advance you might end up soaking the sun and drinking red wine all day. I am aware of the fact that this option sounds just about right for some of you but still, first read our A-Z Barcelona list and get inspired by the city and all the great things it has to offer:
The first thing you will notice when arriving in Barcelona is the amazing architecture. Gaudi’s work (we will talk more about him later on) helped a great deal to shape the architecture in the city; creative and open minded.
Spain is one of my favorite countries in Europe. The weather is warm most of the time, the food is excellent, ZARA is much cheaper there than the ones in the rest of Europe, (sorry guys, just had to mention it ) and Spanish people definitely know how to enjoy life.
Many cultural things we all know and love come from the Spanish culture: inspiring football, tapas restaurants, Ibiza style parties and of course the beautiful actress Penelope Cruz. If you plan a trip to Spain anytime soon, do some research in advance about Spanish culture. It won’t harm you; it will actually give you the chance to get closer to the local people, a guarantee for a fun experience!
We divided our Barcelona hotel on star class, to see which ones have had the best reviews in 2010. Below is an overview of how we came to the charts for this city.
We took into consideration all the Barcelona hotels with a direct contract with easytobook.com that have at least 10 reviews, to make the results more significant. On our website the reviews are based on a longer period, but we used the reviews written by guests in 2010 only, for more up to date results.
To make sure the comparison is more fair, we divided the hotels on star class. The grouping is as follows:
- 0 and 1 star hotels
- 2 star hotels
- 3 star hotels
- 4 and 5 star hotels
