Ccarvalhonuno stayed here on Dec 26, 2009 during their trip titled: Ccarvalhonuno's Great Adventure.
Well, Judy was right again. When I told my fashionista friend Judy that I was moving to Barcelona, one of the very first things she said was, "Hm. You're going to have to find new places to get your hair and nails done." I recall thinking this was an utterly ridiculous comment and told her such. But she was right. My new friend Holly and I were desperate to have someone rub lavender scented salt scrub on our tired feet and paint our nails ...
... magaluf or shagaloof, which it is more commonly known as. It is like an english schoolies on steriods. I would have joined in on the fun but I was going into digestion mode after the half of cow I had inhaled. Back in Barcelona and I had a lot more exploring to do. I had a day of checking out the Gaudi arhitecture, which is incredible and enchanting. A friend had told me about a fountain in a random park. She said it was one of the most extravagant fountains she has ever Seen. ...
... It is a fresh food market with an amazing range of small goods, fruit and veggies, olives, pre packaged food and tapas bars. Wishing we had known about it before having had our soggy cornflakes at the hostel we vowed to go back there tomorrow for breakfast. It was then onto the Sagrada Familia. Of course there was plenty of distraction as the sales start on the 1st July and we had to have a look! The Sagrada Familia is Antoni Gaudi's ...
... tiny like Ginger (well, maybe tiny bit bigger than Ginger), and bravely climb the human ladders all the way to the top. The highest tower must have been about 10m! Wow! It was so cute to see them climb and descend as they looked like little monkeys, but at the same time, we were so worried thinking about "What if...". They wear helmets but that's about it.
After watching the impressive towers, we were back to our original plans of the day - to visit 2 ...

Historical Traveler Reviews H10 Itaca Hotel Barcelona
Very Good Hotel
My wife and daughter and I stayed here from May 14-16, 2004. Good location, very friendly staff, very good room, great bathroom, excellent bar, close to train station and great market next door.
Stayed at the Hotel Itaca for 3 nights. Thanks to BA and a busted plane got in really late at night, so wasn't greeted with the champagne on arrival like the other reviewers.
The Itaca is a modern very comfortable hotel. The rooms are spotless, bathroom very nice. Very close to the tourist bus route making exploring Barcelona very easy. The staff were friendly and helpful. We would stay in this hotel again if we returned to Barcelona.
Just back after a fabulous week in Barcelona. Stayed at the Itaca and would strongly recommend it, from champagne on arrival to the excellent breakfasts. Bedroom and bathroom were both spotless, very important issues which can make or break a holiday. Staff very friendly and helpful. Itaca a little further from the centre of things than I had thought, but the Sants railway / metro only 5 minutes away. A brisk 20 minute walk will get you to La Ramblas and you can enjoy the sights on the way. A taxi ride from the airport should cost around 20 euro, and around 6 euro from the hotel to the centre, but make sure the meter is used. Only minor criticism is the hotel dinner menus did not change, but there are so many restaurants to choose from eating out will be a delight. A favourite was Ba Ba Re Ba on Passeig de Gracia.
We were a little unsure of the H10 Itaca as there was on one review on it. This excellent hotel located a short walk from the station was first class in every way. Greeted with a smile & a chilled glass of Cava, we were shown to our room which was immaculately clean, the most important thing to me, beautifully decorated with every toiletry item you could wish for in the marble bathroom. Breakfast was unbelievable, fresh fruit, cold meats, cheeses, even smoked salmon. Cooked eggs, bacon, sausages. Juice, cereals, savoury pastries, danish sweet pastries and cakes. Simply the best breakfast I have ever experienced in any hotel I have stayed in! Having worked in the hotel trade for 20 years I could not find fault. Barcelona itself is amazing. We will return to this wonderful city and this hotel.
Out of The Centre
We took a cab form the airport (costing approximately 20 Euros) and were met at the Itaca by friendly staff and a glass of champagne which was fantastic. Our rooms were spacious and clean and inspected and cleaned on a daily basis. Although we didn't have an evening meal, breakfast was a suptious affair with all sorts of fruit, cold and hot meats, pastries and bread on offer. You could replenish your plate at any time although there was always a mad rush whenever the strawberries came out! The Itaca was more than a walk from the centre but a few minutes on foot lead us to a main bus/train/metro stop - 10 minutes on the metro and you could be at Las Ramblas. Personally I would use the Itaca again.
