Only 50 rooms have been blocked at this time. Depending on the registration, I can negotiate with the hotel for more rooms.
Room Block Deadline is August 15. The organizer has no right to provide a room at a special rate. Therefore, making an early room reservation is highly suggested.
Taxi Service: the time and price may vary depending on traffic conditions, but on normal circumstances should not take longer than 20 minutes and cost is around 35-40 Euro.
Suburban Train: if you are arriving at Terminal 1 you will need to take a free shuttle service that will drive you to the train station. Trains leave every 20 minutes from 06:08h until 23:38h. The best option to get to city centre or to the hotel is to leave get off the train at Passeig de Grΰcia Station (about 26 minutes after leaving the airport station). Then take the metro at the same station until Llacuna metro station (same line - Line 4 Yellow). The estimate cost is 4 Euro and estimate time from/to airport-hotel is about 45-55 minutes.
