  1. We stayed at the Best Western. Convenient, well-priced and they have a shuttle.
  2. We booked our room 9 months in advance of our trip and (with the discounted rate) paid less than 400 Euros per night. However, that was an upgraded corner room with breakfast included. The property is right down the "street" from La Boqueria and a short walk to the Barcelona Cathedral in Barri Gotic. We only needed transportation to the port and to La Sagrada Familia; everything else was within walking distance. We feel that we got more than our money's worth and plan to return.
  3. We signed up on their website and got a discount code. I believe it was 30-35% off.
  4. We loved our stay at Hotel 1898 right on Las Ramblas.
  5. We stayed at the Best Western Plus Hotel Alfa at the airport last month. It was very reasonably priced, is clean, has an airport shuttle and a decent restaurant.
  6. We LOVED Hotel 1898 right on Las Ramblas!
  7. We bought this one through Amazon for about $40 to use in our hotel before and after the cruise. Worked like a charm! We did not need it on the ship.
  8. Either taxi, or we were pleased with J&G Elegance Cars. You can Google them easily and they were prompt and good to work with.
  9. Here's another vote for a stroll along Las Ramblas, the Boqueria and maybe the Gothic Quarter. I think you meant you were staying in a location "off" Las Ramblas, not that you wanted to avoid it, correct?
  10. I understood that reply just fine, thanks.
  11. Thanks to everyone for your responses. We are out of POM. But MUCH THANKS to BNBR for the tip about Global Entry!! We usually have our cards but it would be our luck that would be the one time we didn't!!
  12. We arrive on the MSC Meraviglia on a Sunday morning (7 AM). We are sailing in the Yacht Club and can be escorted off the ship as soon as she is cleared. We have Global Entry (does that matter at a cruiseport??) and will have a private shuttle pre-booked. My husband uses a mobility scooter and I can handle our two pieces of luggage. The big question is: Can we easily make an 11:15 AM flight out of MIA?
  13. We did this last month. It was a great way to get an overview of the beautiful city. We used J&G Elegance Cars. They will happily email you a quote. Very easy to work with.
