“Tops for convenience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014

This hotel is conveniently located close to Sants station for trains to and from the airport and also Metro lines 2 & 3. From Sants you can travel anywhere. Also nearby within easy walking distance is Las Arenas centre (former bull-ring) for shopping and restaurants. The Magic Fountain is just a bit further along.
The hotel itself is fine. Everything you would expect from a continental European 4-star hotel. The things that were appealing at the Itaca Hotel were the ground floor outdoor bar area and the shallow 'swimming' pool and sun deck. A nice touch in the city. The breakfast was very good with great variety. Also enjoyed the memory foam bed mattress. The room safe was simple to operate and you didn't have to get down on your hands and knees to access it.
The downside.......as usual Attention to Detail. The small niggly things that would be so easily attended to if the hotel management put their mind to it. It's a universal issue in the hotel industry and would be solved in my opinion by having the hotel manager stay at least a week of nights in various rooms in the hotel to see first hand what annoys perfectionists like myself. For instance: The windows were dirty, the glass needed a good cleaning. Both triple-glazed windows should have opened. One didn't and the unit itself was ready to fall apart with the glass panes separating. In the bathroom the toilet leaked at the back when flushed.
Someday I would love to give a hotel a 5 point rating. But it won't be this time.......

Room Tip: Avoid rooms on the second floor directly above the restaurant. They seem to move the chairs about af...

This hotel was an excellent choice and helped to make a fantastic mini break to Barcelona. The trip was everything we hoped for and more. Having emailed the hotel before we left, we were given instructions to get from the airport to the hotel either by taxi, train, or bus. We chose the train and would recommend this as the best option. We took a short walk to the station from the airport and bought two adult tickets at 4euros each to Sants Estacion. After three stops, we got off the train and took a very short walk to the hotel. We were greeted with a glass of cava and were able to check in early, which was great after a very early start from the UK. We decided to spend the afternoon on the decked terrace by the pool, which had lovely sun loungers, hotel provided towels and drinks delivered at the press of a buzzer!!

The room was spacious and clean with a nice bathroom and a fantastically cold fridge, tv, coffee making facilities etc. we booked B&B and the breakfast was great with everything you could wish for, even Cava! In fact, our breakfast lasted us until our dinner in the evening! It was on from 7.30 until 10.30 am with no pressure to finish if you arrived late. The staff in the hotel were always friendly, very helpful and professional. They helped us to check out football ticket availability, train times, maps, even provided a plug adaptor which I had forgotten to pack. They delivered robes and slippers, a slate of fresh fruit and a chilled bottle of cava to our room, nice touches. This hotel wasn't particularly in close proximity to the main tourist areas but it's distance from the train/metro station made it an excellent location.

We bought two day passes for the metro underground at approx 12£ each and would absolutely recommend this as a preferred method of transport and an extremely quick efficient way of seeing Barcelona and all it's amazing attractions. We could quickly get to all the places we wanted to see in two days and used it to go out on the evening. The best restaurants are on Las Ramblas and Passage de Grazia with all it's designer shops and truly amazing buildings. A return taxi late at night cost between 6and 8 euros.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.

We accidently booked the wrong hotel (Itaca in stead of Montcada....not sure if it was our mistake or that the other hotel was fully booked and they put us in Itaca. The rooms were expensive and small. The bar was closed and the area boring. No smiling staff or any way that they made us feel better. Whe we asked if they could help us with finding or transfering us to another hotel: the answer was no. No money back, no help or what so ever. The pictures give a wrong impression of the hotel. I would NOT recommend this hotel. It is far too expensive for the service and rooms you get.

Room Tip: We had a room with two beds... and not a nice view

Great Hotel. Staff very helpful and friendly. Stayed 4 nights B&B. breakfast very good. Vegetarian choice wonderful. Had searched hotel website before travelling and took small kettle and hairdrier. If in standard room these are not supplied but superior rooms they are. Could have carried lees if website had been more specific.
Hotel very handy for Sants Rail Station from Airport and Metro to other parts of Barcelona.

The staff were top class very helpful. This is a very professionally run outfit. Breakfast was good. The location was great being near Sants station giving easy access to both the metro and the airport. Some nice restaurants in the surrounding streets. We went to a lovely pizzeria and a gourmet burger restaurant.

I would happily stay here again. Took point off as the pool is small but wasn't a big issue for me.

Travelled to Barcelona to watch a game at Nou Camp with my son and stayed at Itaca Hotel.
Our flight was really early out from UK as such we arrived at hotel at 10:00 which was way before check in time, however they made a room available and we were in it for 10:30. Match tickets were collected from reception and guy on desk was really friendly and helpful, providing maps and showing us best routes to take and giving us some info about what we could find there. For our stay location was ideal and was only a 20 minute stroll to the game, however may be a bit out of the way for some as was much longer stroll into centre and down to harbour, but regular metro service and taxis so don't see it would be an issue.
Rooms were of a good size and spotlessly clean, with tea coffee available, well stocked mini bar at reasonable prices, large TV, iron and ironing board (not used) and comfy beds
We stayed B&B and the breakfast was 1st class, everything you could want, hot and cold.
Reception and bar staff were really friendly and helpful providing a good service as did the team working in the restaurant in the morning
Hotel also has sauna, gym and jacuzzi up on roof top for no extra cost
Would recommend

Room Tip: View from front of hotel overlooking main street probably better than one from rear,

Picked mainly due to budget and it's location to the main train station in Barcelona, my partner and I were not disappointed. The staff were absolutely amazing, offering a glass of champagne or juice when we checked in. We had had FC Barcelona tickets delivered to the hotel and these were given to us along with a map indicating how to either walk to Camp Nou or which metro station was nearest. We walked - and it was really easy and an enjoyable stroll! I'd recommend it.

Breakfast was brilliant (and included) offering hot and cold food. We ordered room service one evening and the food was enjoyable. I would say that if you want something within the hustle and bustle, something nearer or on Las Ramblas might be more for you, but this is a hidden gem with a great outdoor pool and decking area, within close proximity to the train station and walking distance to tour guide stops and the airport transfer stop. The room was clean, with a huge bathroom, but what really made it a great stay was the brilliant service.

Would definitely stay again!
