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.

... alike line up to go up to touch her.
This place is still a working monastery and also a boys choir. Boys as young as 8 live here during the week and sing everyday to The "Madonna".. and only go home Friday afternoon until Saturday night... the Monks or Priests make chocolate and grog. Of course they do!
We were all amazed at the place and wondered how they managed to build it in the first place. Also how they managed to build the cable cars ...
... way nature played a strong part in the design and construction. Then to round out the three peat, we meet the Curries at La Pedrera, a house built between 1906-1912, which is an icon of modernism. This residence was actually commissioned by a rich private citizen. To this day, it remains a private apartment complex. We visit the roof with its forest of colourful tiled chimneys, the attic and one of the apartments ...
... a pleasant looking town with a long, wide promenade overlooking the Med. Perfect place for walkers, bladers and bikers. Strolled into the old town, we visited the church (didn't go in as their was a Sunday service in progress) and walked the many narrow streets and window shopped. Then we walked to the Terramara hotel where Chantal had reserved a table on the terrace. We share a paella and sip wine/beer overlooking the ...
Today alfred and I decided to have a wander. Our apartment is really cool in temperature as it is blocked inbetween lots of residential blocks and we are in the bottom floor. When I set off little man and I were wrapped up in in coats. But it turns out its a scorcher of a day so coats and hats off and off we went. Alfred was again entertaining himself by waving at everyone as we went. I wanted to have a look around our new area. I'm finding Sierra sooooo ...
... large food market off a side lane and wandered around there. It was impressive for its size and quality of produce and display, but the prices didn't look cheap. The type of mixed nuts that Craig likes in NZ were 40 euro per kg. So Ang bought a few chocolates to sample. We confirmed that the 2nd Irish pub is only showing live soccer on Saturday. We looked in a few shops and returned to our hotel to the roof to enjoy the last of the suns rays before relaxing in our room and updating ...
