Q: My husband and I will be travelling to Barcelona on 05 October for a cruise that leaves on 07 October and would like a hotel for 2 nights in the Las Ramblas area. A 4 star, clean not too expensive. Also can you provide information on transportation to the port?
A: We have created several pages that show the hotels on La Rambla - please see the following pages. We have also provided links to our reviews of these hotels along with booking links should you want to make a secure online booking:
Nobody likes waiting around in long queues to get their COVID test. The Express COVID testing service we recommend only works by appointment ensuring that you get tested when you need to without having to queue. Getting your COVID test in the city centre before your flight or cruise offers many advantages over getting tested in the Airport or from a cruise liner. You have your certificates on time without a rush, you have time to correct inaccuracies on your certificate and you have time to re-arrange your flight or other travel plans if you should test positive. To learn more about how to get your COVID travel certificates valid for planes, cruises and other transport, follow one of the links below to learn more.
EXPRESS COVID TESTING
The easiest way to transfer to the port from a hotel on the Ramblas is via taxi. It will take you only 5 to 10 minutes. Alternatively walk to the end of the Ramblas to the Christopher Columbus Monument (Mirador de Colom) and cross the road. You will then see the bus stop for the cruise shuttle bus service (Cruise Bus). For more information on this service see the following page:
