We were so excited to be returning to Barcelona. It was one of the many stops on our trip to Morocco, Nice, and Monaco last year. We were going on our first ever cruise with Air Canada Vacations and Norwegian Cruise lines. When looking for where to stay in Barcelona we wanted to make sure we were close to it all, right on Rambla de Catalunya and Hotel HCC Regente Barcelona was a perfect choice. The Hotel HCC Regente Barcelona is centrally located and one of the best places to stay in Barcelona.

1. Superior Room with Terrace
We stayed in a comfortable room with a large washroom. The rooms are fairly simplistic European style. The best feature of our room is the private terrace with the amazing views of Barcelona. If views are not your thing then you’ll be happy to know that the rooms feature satellite TV and free WIFI.
2. Feast at the Buffet Breakfast
The best part about waking up at the Hotel HCC Regente Barcelona was knowing that we didn’t have to go looking for a place to have breakfast. The hotel includes a very expansive buffet breakfast, that is included in the hotel rate. We loved that we had a buffet breakfast every morning with a wide range of menu items such as scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, an assortment of baked goods, salamis and cheeses, fruit and coffee and tea. Make sure to have the croissants, they are very addictive.
