|Hotel Jardi Barcelona|
The Hotel Jardi Barcelona is a basic, no-frills hotel in the centre of town, good for backpackers and those who just want a bed to sleep on and aren't fussed about facilities.
The hotel was fully booked when I went, and looks over a pretty square.
The hotel Jardi offers a good basic service. It has a small and simple dining area where you have your continental breakfast in the morning.
The hotel Jardi has no business facilities.
The big bonus of the hotel Jardi Barcelona is its location standing over a beautiful little Plaça with a large church opposite . There are several standards of room available. The interior rooms do not face out onto the square. The standard exterior rooms have a view out onto the square and a few have a small balcony. Then there are the superior exterior rooms which look over the square and have either their own little balcony or terrace.
|Area around Hotel Jardi Barcelona|
The hotel Jardi is located in a quiet little Plaça in the middle of the Gothic quarter. La Rambla is just a 5 minute walk away though you wouldn't really know it because the area is so quiet in comparison.

There is a cash machine right opposite the hotel and a couple of good tapas restaurants just across the square.
If you need a pharmacy then head onto Las Ramblas, where you will also find La Boqueria market which is without a doubt the best place to buy your food and snacks. Also in the Plaça, just below the hotel, there is an art market every Sunday. The collection of Catalan artists who display their work every week make an interesting way to idle away some time.
The advanced booking transfers below are independent of the the public transport system. This means if there is a public transport strike these services will continue to operate as normal and you will not be affected by the strike action.
Minibus shared transfer (advanced reservation required)
A shared minibus transfer option is cheaper than the private transfer. You would need to make your way to designated meeting point at the airport.

With a private transfer service the driver will be waiting for you at your arrivals gate. He will have a board or a sign with your name on it so that you can easily identify him. The driver will help you with your bags to the vehicle and then drive you to your hotel.
