Ccarvalhonuno stayed here on Dec 26, 2009 during their trip titled: Ccarvalhonuno's Great Adventure.
... the little pamphlet we were given up through the main staircase, past the city's crest and the iconic salamander statue. It is quite magnificent, encrusted in tile shard mosaic, but I will abstain from going into too much detail as there are numerous images available on the net that would do it justice. At the top of the stairs is a large hall peppered by countless columns. My quest to avoid converging lines in my photographs was hampered by these columns... on close inspection, ...

We ended up sharing most of it and both accidentally got ourselves a little tipsy! After our drink, we wandered a little more and ended up back at the hostel, exhausted. I think we ended up with Burger King dinner and fell asleep real early. What a birthday! Ha! Saturday morning, breakfast, and off to the hop ...

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.
