2 Night City Break in Barcelona - highly rated central boutique hotel, flights & airport transportation just £73.74pp @ www.venere.com

Found 2nd Feb 2016
This is a lovely little city break to Barcelona in March, 8-10th March From Stanstead. The hotel I've picked is a fantastic rated one within walking distance to the Sagrada Familia the Leonardo Boutique Hotel. You could change the hotel for one a little further out but I think this represents great value for money and you don't want to spend your time getting to and from your hotel to Barcelona city with the time you have.

Breakdown

Hotel is bookable at Expedia using 10% off code on here £85.52

Flights @ Ryanair £51.96

Train to and from Airport (stop El Clot Arago) will cosy no more than £10 return for the two of you.

Total £148.48/£73.74pp

Where? I can't see anything with BA anywhere near that price cheapest I can see is from £104pp for 2 nights and that doesn't include airport transportation and costs and the hotel is nowhere near as nice, the one I can see at £104 is 28km away from Barcelona and is in November! I guess if you need luggage and were going to pay for it fair enough but luggage for 2 or 4 nights, really??

Nice place shame about the pickpockets, kids with clipboards (scam), fake police wanting to see your passport, blokes throwing "bird poop" on your jacket, beach thieves, ladies of the night grabbing your trousers, etc.

All that happened to you in one visit? I went there for a long weekend and explored a lot of the city and only noticed one elderly woman with a dog begging sat on the floor near the Ramblas. Let's face it you could see that in most big cities?
Some people never stop moaning!!

Nice deal - and have some heat. :-)

This is taken from Trip Advisor website..

If you're heading out to Barcelona soon please be aware of "bird poo" scam which cost me my bag!! We were walking towards Sagrada Familia when we were suddenly covered in bird droppings. Jogger appears alongside offering help as lives right there, goes in for water and tissues. We put bags down with coats over them and proceeded to clean each other up. One minute he's there chatting, next he's gone and so had my bag, from under my coat, under my feet!! Incidentally the bird poo is melted chocolate. Met other folk in police station with same experience. Please beware!!

I had them all, except the bird poo and fake police, in three days. Actually two days, I spent last day on tourist bus pretty much where it felt safe.
Being very British (ivory white) looking and on my own didn't help, but it was rough and I had no idea it was like that. This was a few a few years ago now, but I would warn anyone to look up the scams as its well known to be just about the worst in Europe for such things.

I'll help anyone who asks in a reasonable manner but do not accuse me of being lazy just because I do not posts deals. I'm entitled to use the site however I wish

Yes please do! I cannot find the deal you mention and I'm genuinely interested in the flight and hotel offer BA have for that price as I've looked and can find nothing that price. Is it using Avios?

We have asked nicely and we have not had a reply yet i think martje was right
Another one to be aware of is when you lock your car, make sure it gets locked. Our bags were stolen from our car after they blocked the locking signal from the key with an RFID transmitter. So, check your doors twice!
Hotel is in a good location to get into city centre, 4 stops on metro probably 15-20 minutes. However having recently visited it is better value to stay a couple nights more for approximately £50 more.
