We stayed here because of its proximity to the train station as we had an early flight and wanted to be sure to get a train to the airport. From our greeting at check-in to the helpful agents, the friendly bar and restaurant personnel to our clean, well-appointed room with a spectacular view of the National Museum of Art, our...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW

Such a convenient hotel for anyone travelling to Barcelona from the airport. This is about 200 yards from Esatcio Sants: convenient. It's also about 300yards from Tarragona on Line 3 so convenient for getting straight to Las Ramblas and the port. The staff there are very helpful and accommodating. We had stayed there before our cruise, and on the return...

Positives This hotel is mostly about the location. Just minutes from Barcelona Sants stations which has most of the cities car hire desks and all amenities whether it be to buy a SIM card or get a meal. The other major positive is the breakfast. Pay the promotional fee of 10 Euros upon check in (12 Euro otherwise) for a...

I had the opportunity to stay here for 3 nights in the superior room on the eighth floor. Check in was easy and finding the hotel from the train station was as easy as looking up. The location for me was spot on as it was in walking distance to Camp Nou and to the Arena further down the road....

I stayed in this hotel for a week in a business trip. Good location, close to a train and metro station. Good restaurants near by and also a good option of food and drinks in the restaurant hotel. Breakfast is quite tasty, but service is a bit slow. There were many dirty tables on the restaurant and it was hard...

It depends on which terminal you arrive.

Will it be on terminal 1 or terminal 2?

Dear Mr/Mrs Ahmet T,

You have 3 options:

-Taxi. Around 30€ (20-30min)

-Train. Around 3€ (20-30min). Hotel is just outside the station and takes about 2 minutes walk.

-Aerobus. Around 6-7€. (20-30min). Takes about 7-10 minutes walk from station to the hotel.

Metro does not reach the airport.

Regards,

Dear Mrs Emma19932,

The Catalonia Tourist Tax applies to any facility where tourists stay overnight — from campgrounds and youths hostel to hotels and cruise ships.

This city tax is 1.21€ and is charged per person, per night.

If you are in Barcelona for a few days, we found it more economical to buy a 10 ride ticket. I would swipe the ticket, then hand it back to my husband to use. A local told us this trick and it works well

Depends what you call 'centre'. It's easy walking distance to Montjuic fountains & art gallery, Camp Nou, Poble Espanol. Also it's close to Placa Espanya where the airport bus takes you.

But the old Gothic city and the Gaudi buildings are a metro ride away. Metro is easy way to travel.

Being realistic, in a huge city you can't get a hotel that's close to everything.

We got a 5 day ticket for buses and Metro. Fantastic value.
