Dear Madam,

The Renaissance Barcelona Hotel is within walking distance of the metro station Passeig de Gràcia, which makes our hotel the perfect spot to explore the hidden gems of the city as well as main touristic attractions such as La Sagrada Familia, however, if you prefer you can take a nice walk to La Sagrada Familia that will take you around 20 minutes.

Available transportations from/to El Prat Airport are:

By Taxi: the trip to the hotel is around 40 minutes; you have a taxi station at the airport.

By bus: the Aerobus rides every 10-15 minutes to Plaça Catalunya, the city center, close by our hotel, just 10 minutes’ walk from the hotel.

By RENFE: this is the train from Terminal 2 (T, it is a 30 minute trip direct to Passeig de Gràcia station. If you arrive to Terminal 1 (T1) it is a 50 minute trip as you need to take a bus to Terminal 2 and then take the train.

A private car service is available upon request to pick you up anywhere, assist you with transportation from the Airport, train stations, day trip in Barcelona or to the country side. You may contact our Navigators for the availability and prices. For a pick up at the airport, an English speaking driver will wait for you just after Customs. Please, contact us directly for further information regarding private transportation costs’.

Thanks you for your enquiry and we do hope to welcome you soon.

Taxi seems best. There is public transportation but then you must get to the hotel by Taxi. It seems it was about 35 Euros

We came to Barcelona from a cruise ship. We had a private driver who took us on a half day tour before dropping us off at the hotel. Taxii's are plentiful and relatively inexpensive. You can easily walk to Segrada Familia from the hotel. When we were there the weather was beautiful so walking was enjoyable. It is a great city to walk. So much architecture to see and enjoy.

We goy a taxi for which there was a minimum charge, as it was not far; however there is a bus from the airport that stops outside the hotel. It was either the 42 or 46. With regard to travel around the city there is excellent transport links. We purchased a T10 zone 1 travel card, 10 trips in the city centre on train, tram, underground or bus. This can also get you to the airport.

Europe is a place to walk. However, in summer Barcelona can be very hot and humid. I walked to the subway station at Diagonal and then you get off rught next to Sagrada Familia. There is a little walk to the station but you do save many steps. It is not that far to walk but actually that part of Barceloba is less interesting. Of course, if you walk, do stop at some place and have an expresso or somerhing else. A taxi is always fine, I just don't prefer it. But from airport to hotel take a taxi. I arrived by train and took also a taxi.

It's really easy to take the train from the hotel to Sagrada Familia. I took a cab from the airport to the hotel

The taxi fair between the hotel and airport was only about 25-30 EUR if I remember correctly. You can walk from the hotel to Segrada Familia and really all of the city landmarks.
