Small tips between friends

- Pay attention : Except for certain seaside resorts, the schedules for meals are different from those of the rest of Europe and the U.S.. Lunch time is from 13.30 to 16.00.; Dinner time is from 21.00 to 23.00. As for night clubs, some do not start to be animated until 3.00 in the morning. Some shops close for a pause in the middle of the day from 14.00 to 16.00 or 17.00.

 

- In hotels and restaurants it is often necessary to add to the note a tax (IVA) which goes from 7% (normal) to 12% in some fancy restaurants. Bread is generally charged and is often not very good.

 

-The tip is not included in the note: it is not obligatory, but it is courteous to leave something (approximately 7% to 10% of the note)

  1. pickpockets in Barcelona - lan (25 Sep 2012 - 09:30)

    Beware of pickpockets near hotels. I was staying at Hesperia Presidente hotel near the Diagonal and Travessera de Gracia in Sept. 2012. First day after arriving, we had lunch near our hotel when two middle aged people spoke to us. It only took a second and my bag was gone! Fortunately no money, or credit cards were in the bag. But these people work very quickly, smoothly. So beware!!
