This review is for the previous edition, which i don't see listed. I know this isn't the most substantial guide, but I found it absolutely fabulous for the two days I spent in Barcelona in the summer of 2011. It was clear, concise, easy to read, and gave me a clear idea of some things I wanted to see while I was there. I went on a couple of the self-guided walking tours as well as exploring many of the parks and locations with its guidance. I would definitely use this travel series again.
It's difficult to rate this book because I went on holiday with my sister, brother-in-law and my 2 1/2 year old nephew. I didn't finish the book before the holiday was done, but as it turns out 2 1/2 year old boys don't really adhere to travel guide advice, so it was rarely used. It did however give good advice on kid-friendly activities; and it was easy to read. So, 4 stars - why not? We'll go back and tick a few more things off the list, and the guide will be handier then.

These books are just perfect for a quick trip -- they have just enough information to help you see the most popular and important sights, in a small, compact book. I love the maps, and that the pages are slightly waterproof (waxy?). I love tucking these into my shoulder bag and whisking away on a trip!
OK for quick highlights but I would not recommend this book. I did not find that I would like to visit the top ten of anything in the city except for top 10 sites. Bars, restaurants, etc are nice to know but when you are in the middle of your day...not so easy to use. I would recommend using the maps found at the Metro and from the hotel you stay at instead. Look up top 10 must see sites online.

Recommends it for: people travelling to Barcelona
I obtained the 2002 version so it's out of date but still provides the relevant information required for my trip. :) La Ramblas is not what I expected it to be. It was by far the worst place we visited in Barcelona.
