We specially recommend you to take a taxi from the airport in order to get the apartment you rented with us! It's the most comfortable way and really cheap in Barcelona, due to the short distance between the airport and the city centre.


A taxi for 4 people will cost you about 25 to 30 € € and it will take about 30 minutes to your Barcelona apartment. Please give the exact address which appears in your booking confirmation letter to the taxi driver.

There are a lot of taxis just in front of all the terminals. You can recognize them from their typical black-yellow varnish.More info 902 240 202
