How to get to Campus Mundet on Monday morning: Travel on the green Metro line (L3) northwards to metro stop Mundet. From there you can take the campus bus to the top of the hill, or you can walk up the stairs to Palau de les Heures, where we meet in room 12 at 9:30 on Monday morning. The Metro ride + the walk on campus should take ca. 30 minutes. Link to campus map
As far as accommodation is concerned, the following is good to know:
May in Barcelona is a very touristic month, so we have blocked 15 rooms at the hotel City47 (http://www.hotel-city47.com/en/).
It’s a little expensive (145€ for a double room with breakfast), but Barcelona right now is one of the most expensive destinations in Europe.
The way to do a reservation is to send an email to this address: email@example.com
The contact person is Miriam and the code of the reservation is : 6.126.601
If this hotel is not suitable, please see to it that you get a hotel near the green metro line No L3 (http://www.mapametrobarcelona.net/mapas-metro/mapa-metro-barcelona-2016-02.png).
All questions about the hotel room blocking should be asked to Miquel Robert at Universitat de Barcelona (firstname.lastname@example.org).
