RECAP:: Barcelona, Spain

  • FLIGHT -- RYANAIR :: This was our first time flying with RyanAir and we had a great experience. Absolutely no issues. For such a cheap flight we will definitely be using Ryan Air again!
  • TRANSPORTATION :: We actually flew into the Girona Bavara Airport, an hour away from Barcelona. Although we landed outside the city it was an easy connection via the 'Barcelona Bus'.  The bus station is located at the end of the taxi stand at the Girona Airport. We were dropped off at Estacion del Nord, the main bus station in Barcelona. Right across the street from the bus station was the Arc de Triomf metro station. A 3-day pass for the metro system only cost us 24 Euro total.
  • HOTEL: TRAVELODGE BARCELONA POBLENO :: For this trip we decided to try the Travelodge hotel chain. Much like RyanAir they are known for being a budget hotel. Just the basics. Our room was clean. Moderate size. No housekeeping which isn't an issue for a short stay. Great location.  Located just two blocks from the L4 'Llancuna' metro stop. The 'Barceloneta' Beach metro stop was just a few stops away. Also, located in a great neighborhood. Good restaurants. Just a few blocks away was a grocery store where we bought waters & snacks.
