You can use a regular taxi, there is no need to pre-book (we locals rarely if ever pre-book transfers, you pay more for the same service or sometimes worse). There are always zillions of taxis just at the exit doors, taxis are metered and queues are marshaled. Have your hotel name and adress printed and ask for a receipt (this minimizes the risk of having your bill inflated, most drivers are honest but as everywhere there are some rotten apples). Should not cost more than 30-35€

If you do not have much luggage, the Aerobus will take you to Plaça de Catalunya nearly as fast as a taxi, for about 6€ each of you (or 10€ return trip)

Bon viatge!

We used the Aerobus to Placa Catalunya a few weeks ago, and it was so easy. Just follow signs to ground transportation. From there we could walk to our hotel. We each had a medium size suitcase and a backpack, no problem on the bus.

Do you think the aerobus would be a problem for us if we each have one large suitcase & one carry on each or should we stick with a taxi even though it is more expensive? Trains leaving from airport seem a little confusing to me as there is no direct route to Plaza Catalunya.

by train from T2 you should transfer to at sants estacio and catch any train on platform 8, one stop later you are at plaça catalunya.

anyway, in your case i guess a taxi should be the best option.

Aerobus is super easy and cheap with suitcases. They have a section to hold the large cases, and carry on case on your lap. I would not hesitate to take the bus, and if you decide you can't walk to your hotel, then take a taxi from Placa Catalunya.

Thanks Alberta-Traveler. Sounds like the aerobus is the way to go. I think the hotel is within a couple of blocks of Plaza Catalunya so shouldn't be a problem wallking from the bus.
