4.0 out of 5 stars Lonely Planet up to their usual standard! 21 Jan 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Lonely Planet guides are invaluable for their wealth of information, local advice and honest reviews of a huge range of attractions and locations in the city. The handy map at the back is great for when you get lost (even includes a subway map) and the restaurant reviews cater for all budgets and tastes. A nice touch is that the average price of a main course/tapas dish is shown for each restaurant -handy for travelers on a budget!
My only slight nag with it is that it is organised by district. This is sometimes very helpful, but not so good if you are trying to find a particular activity and don't know which district it might be in. Of course that's what the index is for - I think it's personal preference, it depends how you're trying to use it. I found it slowed me down enough to give it 4*s, although the content itself more than makes up for this.

2.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Read, But Not Good For Getting Around 29 April 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The content is very interesting and it's certainly worth reading, but as a guide book it fails to guide you. The maps are very disjointed and for some reason Lonely Planet don't have north point upwards like everyone else uses, so it makes comparing them to other maps a little weird.

More annoyingly, an article will tell you that the site/bar/hotel/etc it's discussing can be found on the map on page X, so you go to the map on page X and whilst that map will have several other sites (or whatever) listed, it won't have the one you're looking for in the legend. You're left wondering if they've pointed you to the wrong map or if they've just forgotten to mark the map - either way, you have no idea where it is...

5.0 out of 5 stars Best travel guide I've ever bought 29 July 2013
By Kig
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was totally invaluable for a 2x day visit to the city. We found incredible places to eat and drink and it must have saved us hours of wandering and pondering. A must if you are only in Barcelona for a short period of time.
