La Rambla accommodation and orientation to Palau de Congressos de Catalunya

Page Content

Q: I will like some advice on where to stay. I personally love the Las Ramblas area and especially around Plaça Reial. but I am attending a conference at Palau De Congressos de Catalunya ( I am not sure where on the Av diagonal the Congressos is?). Can you recommend accommodation near Las Ramblas and with easy transport options?

A: If you are staying on or near La Rambla then you will not have any problem getting to the conference centre on the Metro system. It will take you approximately a 30 minute metro ride for one of the metro stops on La Rambla i.e. Drassanes, Liceu or Catalunya. You would then get off at the stop called Zona Universitaria where you alight for the conference centre. From there it is a short walk to the Palau de Congressos de Catalunya conference centre.

Our Insider Tip

Nobody likes waiting around in long queues to get their COVID test. The Express COVID testing service we recommend only works by appointment ensuring that you get tested when you need to without having to queue. Getting your COVID test in the city centre before your flight or cruise offers many advantages over getting tested in the Airport or from a cruise liner. You have your certificates on time without a rush, you have time to correct inaccuracies on your certificate and you have time to re-arrange your flight or other travel plans if you should test positive.
