Not 13 miles from Sagrada Familia
Posted Sep 26, 2015
Hotel was just that, a room. Got a great price, but good Lord, its out in East Jesus. If you are flying in and hoping to do some sightseeing around Sagrada Familia or La Rambla, you are super far from the action...like 45-60 min Renfe line train ride away. It may be 13 miles as the crow flies, but definitely not a cab ride...for reference, it was a €75 cab ride from the airport...and the popular areas are 1/4 the way from the airport. Other than that, I asked for a double room w/ 2 beds....they wheeled the second single sized bed in there and called it good.
Unless you want to stay at Granollers North for a reason and just need a bed, this is not a good starting or ending point for getting to tourist spots. Friendly staff and close to some restaurants and a Mercadona grocery store 3 blocks away. No fridge, no nuke, no frills. just room, shower, bed.
