Barcelona Airport Transfer

I'm arriving in Barcelona around noon on Wednesday, Sept. 15. Staying at Condes de Barcelona hotel on Passeig Gracias and Mallorca. Suggestions for best way to get from airport to hotel?

A taxi ad around 25EUR is swift and relatively inexpensive.

Shuttle bus at 3.5E per person and let's you off in front of El Corte Ingles.

Blue Aerobus - 30 minute ride.

It's a 5 minutes walk or 2 minute taxi 2 your hotel.

Hi.

What about from the airport to Rialto Hotel? Am arriving at around 6.30 pm. Would it be OK to take the aerobus or perpaps opts for the taxi? Do they have an official taxi stand to buy ticket?

I think it's a bit more than 5 min. from El Corte Ingles to the Condes de Barcelona, especially with bags. I'd opt for the taxi. 25€ sounds about right.

Nice hotel BTW. Hit Txapel (or Xapala?) down the street for fun tapas and Basque cider (watch out.) Fun area.

The Aerobus stop is on the same corner of Placa Catalunya as Passeig de Gracias. NE corner.

Mallorca is 6 blocks straight up Passeig de Gracias. A short walk depending on your bags or a very quick taxi ride.

I was very impressed with the Aerobus. We took it both ways. At 7PM arriving and 7AM leaving.

Thanks everyone. And we'll definitely try Txapel. Nice to have a solid recommendation close by.
