Ccarvalhonuno stayed here on Dec 26, 2009 during their trip titled: Ccarvalhonuno's Great Adventure.
As in the last few years we chose not to join the zonbie shuffle towards the metros, buses and taxis but instead walked to the other end of the avenue where the fountains were playing merrily to them selves, to get a few more pictures. Behind them and up the stairs the clean up operation had alresdy begun.
Eventually we agreed to start making our way back. This was an early finish compared to the last five nights but we all agreed that we were hungry again (we ...
Vandaag aangekomen in Barcelona! Wat van een leien dakje ging, behalve dan dat ze bij de douane een fietstrapper in Joris z'n tas aanzagen voor een (dodelijk?) pijpje, waardoor we daar nog een half uur moesten wachten terwijl we al zo compleet niet op tijd voor ons vliegtuig waren...
Van het vliegveld naar het centrum van Barca fietsen bleek een stuk moeilijker dan we dachten. Er ...

I must admit - though Benita and I had planned to spend a couple days together in Barcelona before kicking off our individual trips, I had a hidden agenda I didn't tell her about. I was here for somebody else - another girl! Yes, I am a cad of the worst kind - not only was I going to step out on my girl, but I was going to flaunt it in her face.

... it provides shade in the summer. The streets are curved inwards to the middle so that the water can be drained. We got tapas for lunch, which I didn't particularly enjoy, but obviously had to try it. Our tour manager told us to look for tapa bars with dirty floors down a side street because that means they are too busy to clean the floors and side streets will be cheaper. After that, our core group went to the Picasso museum. It had many of ...

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.
