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.......
