BARCELONA: MUR MURI HOTELNovember 21st, 2012 | Posted by in Travel
It was a quick work trip and I don’t know Barcelona so well. It could have been really nice but it wasn’t. Like the counter staff were very nice but kept talking for ages before recognizing you were there. Or one of the bar staff was an utter dickhead – I dunno if he though he was being funny or what telling me what I really wanted was a Cosmopolitan (?! PLEASE?!) Later a younger girl went back to the bar saying it was too alcoholic could they water it down for her, they were laughing about her behind her back in front of me. Not cool.
On the other hand, the restaurant staff within the hotel were outstanding and the service was great. I had a great fish and rice soup and then here is my dessert. It is a melon soup with melon sorbet and mint. It was really delicious. However it does look like a knob coming out of a bowl of whatever…
This cake shop is meant to be one of the best in Barcelona. I don’t know if I would say that. This was like a victoria sponge inside and all a bit dry.
So, better luck next time hey Barcelona?
