I had a very nice stay at Barri. I went from Barcelona by bus. When I reached the bus station at Andorra, it was slightly drizzling. I was following the google maps and it was a little difficult to walk all the way ‘up’ to Barri. Actually it would have been easy, had I known about this elevator within a short walk from the bus station, which could have easily made me reach Barri quickly.
The owner/manager (sorry, forgot his name) of the property was standing outside and upon my arrival was quick to be back at the reception. It was a very smooth check-in and he explained me everything.
Eventhough a hostel with all the facilities matching to it, I had a private room with an attached bathroom. The room did have a kind of antique feel and I quite loved it.
There is a very happening pub on the ground floor which is open until late. The hotel (or the hostel) is right in the centre of the town and easy walking distance to most other restaurants/shopping/bars etc.
I woke up early and wanted to go to the ski-mountains and wanted to get a taxi and luckily the owner/manager was awake and he arranged everything. He spoke to the Taxi guy in Spanish/Catalan and I didn’t have any further trouble in explaining anything to him.
I had a very smooth check-out and I was guided through the easy exit through the elevators to the bus station.
I would definitely be staying at Barri, next time I am at Andorra.
