Unhappy Barcelona Hotel Post day - warning

We stayed one post night at Catalonia Berna with a transfer from hotel to airport the next day provided through Carnival. This hotel was suppose to provide a breakfast buffet that was included in the price (an extra 16 euro). We were suppose to be picked up 2 1/2 hours before our 10:15am flight.

When we received our instructions it stated we had to be in the lobby at 7am. The hotel does not serve breakfast until 7 and 7:30 on Saturdays. So we lost out on a breakfast. No coffee in the lobby either. We arrived at the airport at 7:35 and had to eat there. This is just a heads up warning if the included breakfast makes or breaks you decision to book this hotel. I'm sure this happens at most of the hotels booked through the cruise lines with transfers to the airport.

Did you check whether a box breakfast could be organised. I know I have stayed in a couple of hotels where breakfast was included and had an early morning flight. I was given a box breakfast.
