The sounds of Marina Olympica's rocking boats and clicking mastheads swaying to and fro set an impressive backdrop for Ciutadella and Villa Olimpica. Follow the aromas of garlic, wine, and fresh local fish to the various restaurants running along the marina. A grand bronze fish statue soaring high above serves as a beacon to those searching for the renowned Casino Barcelona or the extremely popular nightclubs which practically lie on the beach itself.

Reading through the previous reviews it seems most people have got it wrong as to what this actually is. To clarify, there is a park called "Parc de la Ciutadella" and within that park are several monuments, statues, a very large lake and a stand out fountain which is NOT called El Desconsol despite so many people reviewing it here!...
The Gold Fish Sculpture on Barceloneta (beach area) is spectacular or not depending on the sunlight. It was created by famous architect Frank Gehry. The strips of steel shimmer when there is direct sun. It kind of falls flat when the sun is not hitting it. But it does not hurt to see it in any event.
We ate in the chef's open plan kitchen/living room. It was a 6 course meal, the chef, Xabi, explained each course to us as it was served. There was one server who have a us a wine paring for each course and gave a description of the wine. There were about 10 guests in total; 3 couples and myself with...

Just visited Lela & felt I had to write a review straight away.
We’re staying at the NH hotel just around the corner & found Lela through TA as a nearby recommendation.
A quick 5 min walk and you’re there.
The restaurant has a nice informal ambience. Nicely decorated.
The staff are extremely friendly & only too willing to help...
This is my second time to Barcelona and this was both the best and most authentic food I've had by far! The restaurant doesn't look great and isn't fancy but my god the food is incredible. The owner/chef doesn't speak any English but he found someone he did to accommodate us. We told him to bring us whatever he likes...
The most beautiful hotel! The rooms were spacious and well appointed, the staff was very friendly and provided great service, the pool offered stunning views, delicious drinks and the breakfast buffet is definitely worth it!
Excellent location , room,and staff. Breakfast was great. Staff very well trained with tours and recommedations. Even though the hotel is doing renovations, they make every effort to not let it interrupt your stay or expectation. Walking distance to great resturants, beach and shopping!
The hotel is situated 2 station away from Barceloneta. It is a silent neibourhood.
The hotel is almost new. Service was verry good. Every day they change towels. The only thing that i have it is with breakfast. It was not bad but it was the same for 7 mornings and eggs are missing. You will have 3 kind of...
Nice hotel and restaurant located close to the Arc d'Triomf in Barcelona. About a 15 minute walk from Pl Catalunya where the bus from either Terminal 1 or Terminal 2 drops you in the city. The room I stayed in was small but very clean. Large walk in shower. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. I wish I had...
This is our second visit to this hotel and I can honestly say it is super comfortable and in a great location. It’s very clean with lots of extras in the rooms. Will definitely come back. We haven’t actually eaten in the hotel as there are so many places to choose in Barcelona but great for a good nights sleep.
