Renaissance Barcelona Airport Hotel
Travel Blogs from El Prat de Llobregat
The flight to BCN was very short cuz we crashed! Power nap #2. Dan did some fancy move to get my seat changed from 34A to 34E next to him and it was a great idea. The plane reached the coast and did a huge 360 followed by the most incredible flight right down the northern Spanish beach area. We flew right by the Barcelona harbor, the cruise port, …
It was a pretty heartbreaking day. It hit me that I would
have to leave the ship to travel back to the real world. It was a mix of leaving the waking up to a
new adventure daily in a new city to going back to home. I must say that this trip was beautiful, tiring, and wonder-filled all in one. It has been the gateway door for traveling …

And after a lovely three days in the UK, it's off to Barcelona. After arrival, I took the train into the city and toured La Rambla and the Gothic Quarter. While touring, I was pleasantly surprised to learn that instead of speaking Spanish in Barcelona, Catalan is the official language. Catalan is Spanish, with a little French mixed in. And a …
After work had finished and the heat of the sun was diminishing, it was time to stop and take stock, time to breath. I sat while the sun threw long shadows across Placa de Catalyna a popular relaxing places away from the madness of the Ramblas. I watches as life unfolded in front of me, for once I was a vouier, not a participant. Small children chased the feeding pigeons, lovers strolled hand in hand, and old men ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Renaissance Barcelona Airport Hotel El Prat de Llobregat
We just came back from a tour of Spain which we ended on our own in Barcelona. We had 3 nights free from Marriott Rewards at this hotel.
This visit started badly as the courtesy coach was not available after 2300 and my flight got in at 2345. Despite notifying them of my late arrival this information was not shared. The taxi meter for a two kilometre trip was €4 but the penalty for a short journey made it €13!
Fabulous entrance hall and very comfortable room. All the necessary toys and good bathroom equipment.
I was there for a business meeting the next day and was offered the Elite room for my meeting. This is a very grown up facility and highly recommended.
This more than made up for the transport fiasco.
Really enjoyed my stay and the staff looked after me very well.
We stayed at this hotel because most of Barcelona was sold out (during the 3GSM conference). During the show, it was expensive (but that is to be expected). It is a nice facility and the staff are nice. The breakfast is excellent and the dinner was good (I had osso bucco), but the menu is limited. The bar is almost non-existant. In room internet service costs 20 Euros per day, but is fast.
We missed our flight to London and decided to stay in one of the hotels nearby the airport. My boyfriend liked this hotel so much that we decided to change the ticket again and stay one more night.
Everything from the beginning was a nice surprise. The shutle bus takes you straight from the airport, beautiful lobby, helpful staff, very reasonably priced, great, new rooms (the biggest bed I have ever seen, flat screen giant tv, iron with iron desk) and bathroom (fantastic decor - marble on the floor), and fantastic breakfast. Can't think of any disappoinment.
Worst Hotel in Spain: Overpriced and Shambles
Everything was wrong with this place. It's isolated (there is nothing close to the hotel), and hard to find the shuttle from the airport. The room was dirty (our coffee pot looked like someone had used it as a shovel). The door to the room was broken (and later fixed). The air conditioning hummed. Room service didn't have anything on the menu, and was overpriced and bland. They forgot to bring us utensils. The fire alarm went off at 2am. The hallway noise was easily heard in the room.
Don't waste your money!
We stayed here on our way back to the United States. The rooms are small, small, small! But the staff is incredibly helpful and polite - it was a pleasant surprise for Spain.
Our room was clean. There was no coffee maker or refrigerator but there was a mini-bar. The bed was so large that there was almost no room to get by. Otherwise, it's a nice place to stay for a night or 2.
The restaurant food was very good and the decor was stylish and funky. Overall, a solid experience.
Un excellent hotel
J'ai passe une excellente fin d'annee a Barcelone en sejournant dans cet hotel.Apres avoir franchi une etonnante reception ,vous arrivez dans une belle chambre claire.La salle de bains est belle et les lits excellents.Certe l'hotel est eloigne du centre de Barcelone mais a 4 minutes de l'aeroport.Une navette gratuite vous depose a la gare Renfe ou au depart de l'aerobus( environ 30 minutes pour arriver Place de Catalunya ).Le restaurant est tres bon et le service souriant et agreable.Le soir du 31decembre ,a minuit, une coupe de champagne a ete offerte aux clients descendus sous le dome de la reception.Le tarif est tres interessant.Je recommande fortement cet hotel moderne de derniere generation pour un transit a Barcelone et meme pour un sejour pour visiter cette belle ville.

At the time I stayed at this property, it was only a few months old.
