      BCN Airport>Estacio de França by Rodalies/Cercanias, where to change trains?

      by ABQ_Hugh Online Now Apr 1, 2014 at 2:27 PM

      When going by rail from BCN Airport (R2 Nord) to the Estacio de Estacio de França station (R2 Sud)....I know it is possible to change trains at Passeig de Gracia.

      However in seeing the map, it looks like the first station after BCN Airport, El Prat de Llobregat, is also on R2 Sud.
      I can imagine El Prat de Llobregat has fewer passengers than a station like Passeig de Gracia....would it be a better place to change trains? Is it an easy change Sud comes to same platform, or do you need to change platforms?
      Thanks in advance for your advice.

      Recommendation

      by MagdaM Online Now Mar 23, 2014 at 9:26 AM

      Aloha!
      I would like you (if you have free time) to inform me where is the right place in Barcelona to book hotel or appartment for 7 days. I ask you because i am not the usual type of tourist. I want to live seven days as a Barcelona's citizen not as a tourist. So I would like the acommodation where I will chose to live to have metro very close and be low cost but value for money. If you don't know any hotels just tell me the region you think is fine of transportation and crime scenes.
      Finally could you recommend me valued-small-local running restaurants in which you and your friends or family would choose to eat.
      Gracias beforehand!

    • What's a good hotel in Barcelona?

      by FredRoman Online Now Apr 6, 2014 at 10:57 AM

      What's a good hotel in Barcelona? Not the top hotel as I'm on somewhat of a budget and not the cheapest place either, but something in the middle to above average. (I will spend 2-3 nights there, and get there via train from Valencia)

      I want something close to good restaurants, and want to see Park Güell, Mont Juec, and do the hop on hop off tour. Is there anything else you'd recommend (we have two kids, 11 and 13)

      What restaurants would you recommend for some Catalonian food? I've been to Valencia a few times but never Barcelona.

      Is the Mont Juic area safe? I will be traveling in August, any places to avoid?

      Thanks in advance!

    • Travelling form Barcelona to Madrid.

      by agathi Online Now Mar 7, 2014 at 2:34 PM

      Dear friends, we have booked tickets to Spain for September 15/9-22/9. Barcelona, Madrid and Toledo. Pls can you help me with my first question?
      Because the train from Barcel. to Madrid is very expensive I'm thinking of traveling by plane. I have to book this flight as well in order to get cheaper prices.
      We arrive in Barcel. on 15/9 late at night. So we have 16/9 and 17/9 for Barcelona. Now in order to travel to Madrid on 18/9 shall we take the early morning plane or better leave some time more for barcel. and take a later flight?
      Do you think we have more to see in Madrid and should spend there 3 days instead of 2 and a half?
      I really don't know what to expect in Barcelona. I read some posts but I'm not sure. Of course we might also have our luggage with us this last day if the hotel doesn't agree to keep them. The possible flights are at 9.30-10.50, 14.00-15.20 and 16.00-17.20. So what do you suggest?
