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.
Good Location, Great Quality
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.
Hotel was a pretty short taxi from the airport ($25 Euro) and was really close to the Barcelona Sants station. If you get in at a decent time of day, save yourself some money and catch the train from the airport; really quick and comfrotable.
Other than the wooden floors making the noise from other rooms pretty loud (reason for 4 instead of 5 rating), the rooms were great. Great size, comfortable, clean and the bathroom was excellent.
We are pretty insane so walked everywhere including from the hotel up to the Olympic complex. If you are less inclined to hike 20 miles a day, it is still in a really great location. It is about 20 minutes walk from La Ramblas and about 30 minutes to the sea front.
All in all, really good hotel especially for the price. Would strongly recommend for others.
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.
Itaca is excellent
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.
1st Class ITACA
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.

This morning we woke up around 9:30, and went downstairs to eat breakfast before heading out. We quickly checked out of our hostel and were off. We took a subway, and transferred one line then we were there. When we walked through the door the lobby was beautiful! When we finally had our keys in our hands we were up the elevator and to the door. < …
... home in Costa Brava. Lesson learned: leave time open to spend more time with new friends whenever possible.
Once we got to Barcelona, we scoped out the possibilities and decided on a few must-do's, which I had in mind when planning and deciding on Barcelona in the first place. A significant part of my planning process was to consider what would be fun and educational for the kids. A book that helped me was Fodor's 500 Places to Take Your Kids Before They ...
... they really wanted some chicken strips and what karl calls "american spaghetti" (I think as opposed to german spaetzle). So I think the cruise is coming just in time to give them back some familiarity before we hit Italy. We had speculoos ice cream for dessert - you know that delicious speculoos butter at trader joes? Yep, that as ice cream, yum! After dinner we took a nice stroll back along the water and up las ramblas to the hotel. It has a totally different and better feel at ...

- Columbus was from Genoa, about 10 miles from Ognio, the birthplace of the Raffetto's.
- Isabella invested in Columbus and he returned her hundreds fold.
So while eating Paella and drinking wine, we decided that it is always good to invest in travel, it pays you ten fold ...
... main dish, and dessert of some sort. I ended up getting a cup of fruit, a slice of pizza, and mango flavored ice cream made from rice milk. Further up Las Ramblas is Casa Batlló, a house designed by Gaudi. We got to take a tour of the inside of the house and see a lot of the details that made up Gaudi's unique architectural style. Not only were the details of things like the doors and the windows unique, but so was, for instance, the way that ...
