We stayed at this hotel 23jun-26jun2011.
A day before arrival I requested a twin bedded room in a quiet location....and that's what we got. No view either, but very quiet.
From the airport to Plaza Espanya we took the regular bus 46 (eur1.45 pp) wich has Plaza Espanya as the final destination...so nobody can go wrong here! You can also take the Aero-Bus, for eur5.30 pp it will take you there also (will save you about 10-15min).
Final destination of this bus is Plaza Catalunya.
If you arrive early at BCN Airport, you can buy a T10 ticket at the Tabacco shop or at the entrance of the trainstation (Renfe). This T10 ticket (wich you can use with more people) costs eur8.25 for 10x trips with metro or bus. Please note...T10 not valid on the Aero-Bus only for regular buses. Its a great and cheap way for exploring Barcelona...and so easy!
Location from B-hotel worked perfect for us. Next to Las Arenas shopping mall.
On the groundfloor of this mall you can find several breakfast/coffee places.
We loved the bakery called "Enriche", good coffee and fantastic croissants and sandwiches. We didn't take the breakfast in the hotel (eur14). Please note...if you arrive at the hotel you can get a eur5 pp discount for breakfast..but ONLY when you arrange this at check-in!! Small children will pay half the price from the adults.
Several restaurants close to the hotel (we liked Tapa Tapa) and with the metro you are 3 stops away from Plaza Catalunya&Ramblas area.
The big bonus is the swimmingpool! It's great to jump in a pool after a long day of sightseeing in the busy and hot city.
It was also nice to have a drink there with some nibbles, before going to dinner.
Its difficult to get in the (deep) bath (very high step) and I can imagine that this would be a problem for older people or anyone who has physical problems. As the shower is also in the bath, this could be a problem too.
It was not possible to leave a small bed lamp turned on during the night...its all on or all off.
So, we had to leave the bathroom light on during the night...no big deal.
No rooms available in this hotel for a family of four people! The maximum in one room is 3people.
This time I stayed here with my daughter, but as there are no inter-connecting rooms either, I would have to stay in another hotel if I want to come back to Barcelona with the rest of my family. Two separate rooms is no option for us as we have small children.
