We really liked our hotel, The Gran Havana. The best pillows ever. Good location. The taxi fares were €20 from airport and €15 to port.
So how was the Marina Mike?

The Marina was a great hotel. We initially had a harbor view room but we had to be moved to an inside room because there were hurricane force winds that hit Barcelona the day we arrived. They moved us for safety because of the strength of the wind.
Regardless the room was a large, great amenities and an easy walk to Las Ramblas and the Tourista bus stopped right at the hotel. I would recommend it to anyone.

Sorry folks, but for the third or fourth time we have used The Continental on the top of La Rambla, around the corner from the Gaudi Church and two blocks from the Market.. Clued in about this funky hotel several years ago and have passed it on and been thanked ever since.. As for a driver.. please write me we have a driver who picks us up at the airport, takes us to the hotel,takes us on a guided tour if we want and then gets us back to the cruise ship.. As a matter of fact moments ago Parrot Pop just finished putting up our Barcelona pictures..email@example.com
