Considering attending Apr 13, 2012

Hi Everyone,

I am considering attending but found the prices for the recommended hotel rather high even with the 10% discount. I checked the http://www.booking.com website and the same hotel is considerably cheaper. You can also find many other hotels with excellent facilities and rates to suit every budget.

Thought I'd let everyone know.

Hope to be there!
Marijke

Just checked your comparison Marijke and I'm not sure you're right (for the Plaza Calalunya at least).
I'm staying an extra night and the booking agency you mention offers a single room for 3 nights at £520 (€625 approx.) while the hotel website price (using Patricia's promotional code) is €567.

I have to agree, however, that there are much cheaper hotels in the vicinity, of the same star rating, apparently of decent standard and with favourable customer reviews.
Mine (The Atlantis) is costing under €300.

Addendum Apr 13, 2012

Sorry Russell. I am staying 4 nights and then it is cheaper through the other website (at least 100 pounds cheaper). How very peculiar all of this is.

Trying to work and book a holiday. Always a bad combination!

Renting an apartment and sharing it May 8, 2012

Anyone interested in renting this place and splitting the costs: http://www.airbnb.com/rooms/80338

From Friday to Monday, would be about 350 USD per person for 3 nights and we could have a great party
