Onsite dining is available at the hotel’s CUIT Restaurant, and a rooftop bar, La Terrassa, provides panoramic views of the city.

The Renaissance Hotel Barcelona with 211 rooms was established in 1981, and is a good location with many nearby restaurants, shopping stores, and sightseeing (e.g., CASA Batllo Gaudi), etc. It took about $8 euro from the hotel to La Sagrada Familia - A Must-See Place if you visit Barcelona.
From a Cruise terminal (or a port) to the hotel, the taxi fee is 25 Euro, but any luggages and toll fee will be applied as additional charges.
A BarcelonaBusTuristic runs every 10 -20 minutes with FreeWiFi. A nearby bus station (CASA BATLLO) that is only one block away from the hotel starts at 09:06 a.m. until 19:05 daily.
The breakfast buffet at 24 Euro is very good with many variety of items. Neither the Marriott M Club nor swimming pool/SPA is available at this hotel.
Staff are friendly and services are very good. I will rate this hotel 4.5 in comparison to London Heathrow Marriott Hotel I stayed recently.
