How to reach

You have quite a variety of transport options from Barcelona airport to the city centre. All of them are a reliable, efficient and clean means of transport, and they all take more or less the same length of time. The Q is located on the center, at Ronda Sant Pere 22, on the corner with Plaça Urquinaona, few steps from Plaça Catalunya.

 

Taxi or Private Transfer from/to airport.

From the aiport you can take a Taxi , it takes 20 minutes and cost around 30 Euros (varying due traffic and luggage). 

The Q offer also a private and exclusive transfer from and to Barcelona airport, maximum accomodation is for 4 people and the price is fixed, 39 Euros each journey (similar as a taxi price). 

This transport option is booked in advance and enables you to travel from Barcelona airport directly to the Q door. If you don't speak Spanish and you are unfamiliar with Barcelona, arranging your transport in advance can give you peace of mind and save you the trouble of working out the route yourself.  A private transfer means that the vehicle that you have will be dedicated for you and your party only. The driver will be waiting for you at your arrivals gate with a sign with your name on it. Once you arrive your driver will assist you with your luggage. You will have your own private vehicle waiting for you to take you directly to the Q.

Aerobus and bus service.

Aerobus is the city's shuttle bus service that connects the Airport (both terminals) with the centre of Barcelona (Plaça Catalunya), leaving every 5-10 minutes (A1), every 10-20minutes (A2), every day of the year. The "A1" line takes you to/from Terminal 1 and the "A2" line takes you to/from Terminal 2. The shuttle bus service is available everyday from 5:30am to 1am, and the journey lasts about 30 minutes (although it can take considerably longer during rush hour). From the Airport, the shuttle bus makes a total of 4 stops: Plaça Espanya, Gran Via - Urgell, Plaça Universitat, and finally Plaça Catalunya. To the Airport from Plaça Catalunya, the shuttle bus only makes a total of 3 stops: Sepúlveda - Urgell, Plaça Espanya, and finally the Airport. A one-way ticket to/from either Terminal costs €5.90 or you can buy a return ticket for €10.20 which you must use within 9 days (you can pay by either credit card or cash). Aerobús stops running after 1am, but you can catch a Nitbús night bus service instead (line N17 to T1 or line N16 to T2, 22.00-05.00 every 20 min. The ride from Plaça Catalunya to the Airport takes about 40-50 min).

The cheapest, but slower option than Aerobús, is a bus 46 serving both T1 & T2. Its last stop in Barcelona is Plaça Espanya reached in 25-30 minutes. The one-way ticket costs €2 and can be purchased from the driver. Even cheaper is to buy a T10 Travelcard from the machine located at the train staition outside Terminal 2; this offers even greater value and convenience if further transfer by metro, bus, tram etc. will be needed as the T10 Travelcard journey is valid for 75 mins. Between 11 pm and 6 am the 46 bus service is replaced by N16/17 buses; they take a diversion adding some ten minutes to otherwise a very rapid journey ending at the same Plaça Espanya.

Train and metro.

A cheap and a fast option is the half-hourly RENFE R2 Nord suburban train line calling at Sants (travel time is 18 min), Passeig de Gràcia (24 min), Eln Clot-Aragó (30 min) and more stations beyond Barcelona city limits. Please be advised that this airport train has changed, and no longer terminates at Estació de França (it now goes through the centre of Barcelona and into the suburbs, so it is important to know at which station you should get off). The train terminates next to T2 by section B, with a connecting green coloured bus service to T1 (plan for an extra 15 min of travel). The airport train station has got facilities for disabled people: escalators, lifts, etc. A single ticket for the train is about €3.15, but you can also buy a T10 travelcard (€9.80 for ten trips over any period of time; each of those trips includes 3 bus, metro, train or tramway transfers made within 75 min) instead. You can buy a T10 from the ticket vending machine at the airport station and at the tobacco shop in front of Terminal 2B; you can not buy a T10 travelcard at Terminal 1!
