Nice hotel just a few minutes walk from Sants station. Nice rooms, but a tad on the small side, lovely restaurant, great pool area although the pool is more for cooling off than swimming (not very deep).
Not close to centre of Barcelona but ideal if, like us, you want to walk around the city to see a bit more and get more of a feel of the city. The supermarket downstairs is very reasonably priced and sells everything you'd expect.

We stayed here for 3 nights in December. The welcome we had was fabulous and we were invited to have a glass of champagne outside on the patio, very nice.

Our rooms were modern and lovely, be careful with the mini-bar prices as when the tax is added, its very expensive.

The staff were enthusiastic and helpful. Breakfast was fantastic.

Probably 50 minute walk to Ramblas but it is near a Metro but we were happy to walk. Little bar close by called Moon which was a cute little place, great drinks and will provide a variety of nibbles if you ask.

Very well designed hotel with helpful and profesional stuff. Hotel has good underground parking, which was important to us. Rooms were big and cozy with very comfortable beds. Breakfast surprised us with big choice and variety of foods and drinks. This hotel is worth staying and we enjoyed our time there very much. We can recommend this hotel to everybody.

We recently stayed at this hotel in Barcelona. Upon our arrival, we realized that this was not a four star hotel. It’s missing the luxury feel that one would come to expect from a 4 star hotel. The elevator was old with wood paneling, reminiscent of something you would see in a small town motel like in the movie (Ground Hogs Day). The hallway was dark and dingy with dirty carpeting. It’s worth noting that the emergency staircase is super modern and looks amazing, I wish the rest of the hotel was like the staircase.

Our room was small with cheap furniture and although everything was neat, it does not appear that the surfaces were properly sanitized. For example, our bathroom glass shower door had residue. The impression we got was everything needed to appear clean, when in fact, the truth was all the surfaces were not wiped down. Even our lamp shades were dusty and crooked.

We also echo many another reviewers complaint that the water in the shower will change abruptly from freezing to scorching hot in a few seconds, which can cause serious injuries if one is not paying attention or if a young child is using the shower.

The breakfast was free, but nothing great. Some of the fruit tasted like it came out of a can and the other fruit was sour. The scrambled eggs were horrible…looked like egg soup. The only thing I enjoyed was white toast with two slices of cheese every morning and a cup of green tea. The bare minimum! Also, it was nice that they have a Nespresso machine (hidden in the back) for us to use, but the built-in frother was broken.

The free wi-fi was nice to have, but the connection was very slow. It would also kick in and out. We’re actually at the hotel at this very moment writing this review on an MSWord document because we don’t want to risk losing our review due to a connection timeout.

The only positives about this hotel is its close approximately to one of the main train station hubs and a very friendly staff. The staff is always more than happy to help and will even offer excellent time saving tips for getting around the city. There are also two computers and a printer setup in the lobby, this is good for printing out tickets and boarding passes but bad for the décor as its exposed out in the open and does not make this place look luxurious. We also received some free chocolate dessert balls after checking in and free bottle of champagne with grapes for New Year. All this is great but……..…. we still wish our room was nicer.

In sum, the hotel just does not feel like 4 star hotel but in their defense maybe we are comparing 4 stars to US standards. It appears that many hotels in Europe would incorporate 4 stars in their name. On the roof of the hotel you will see a big sign H10 Itaca ****, in America you will never see Trump International 5 stars, it would just be Trump International and if you’re curious about their ranking you can look it up on the web site.

It is important to note that after we checked out we had to pay a "visitor's tax" equivalent to about 3 Euros a day.

We stayed in this hotel over Christmas. When booking the hotel online I thought it was in the older part of Barcelona which would have made for a more exciting experience, so be alert to the location as H10 is a chain. On the plus side the Itaca is handy for transportation and is in a quiet residential neighborhood. I think it is less expensive as well. There are not many cafés in the immediate area although on our last night in the city we did discover a nice Italian restaurant two blocks away - "Mandi Mandi". The young people at the front desk are hardworking and Esther was especially helpful and competent. Unfortunately most of them are not from Barcelona and do not know much about the neighborhood. One even sent us to a restaurant that was no longer operating! The room has an adequate closet but two of the four bureau drawers are inoperable because the door prevents them from opening. One of the light bulbs was burned out and never replaced although we did not make a request. The bathroom is very nice with a bidet. The room does not have good light for reading. When the shower is used in another room we could hear if quite loudly in our room. Although there are many food choices for breakfast, we did not think the offerings were particularly tasty. For 10 E one could do better.
