A guide that recommends the top 10 places to visit and stay, whether it be for culture, art, history, places to eat or entertainment. It is guaranteed to suggest some of the best places in the city and often the most hidden and without this guide you may never come across such nice places.
It has an easy to follow grid referencing system with clear maps at the front and back of the book.
I swear by these guides and will not visit a place without taking a Top 10 guide with me.

I read a few reviews on here before my week long trip to BCN with my girlfriend on the 8th Aug 09. Our agenda was to see some sights/culture, eat out in some nice restaurants and spend some time on the beach to get a bit of a tan. The book is split into sections:
Top 10 sights to see in BCN (with a detailed breakdown of each feature)
Then the top 10 buildings, squares (placa), churches, museums, cafes, restaurants, night spots, gay hang-outs, shopping areas, markets, city views, parks and beaches, walks and bike rides, activities, kids attractions, festivals, and arts and music venues.
Then broken down by each area ("around town") in BCN are the top 10 local sights, shops, clubs, cafes, bars and restaurants, including beyond BCN.
Then you have a "streetsmart" section which gives you all sorts of useful tips on getting around, getting to/from the airport, tours and trips, safety, money and banking, shopping and accommodation etc.
Finally you have the maps (Metro underground, zoomed out overall map, and zoomed in Barri Gotic area), within the book (including one you can remove and keep on your person) which were very useful for finding little places which are not actually in the book. The size of the book was great as if you have some decent sized pockets (like the side ones in a pair of long shorts) you can take this book with you everywhere and as a result hopefully never get lost!).

The one aspect of the book that I found a little light, was the restaurant reviews, it was great that there were lots of cafes, bars and restaurants named and mentioned, however the amount of information on each restaurant was a little lacking (although to be fair there was info on many places along with a rough price guide).

I loved my stay at Barcelona, I tried to cramm in as much as I can in 3 days so I got 3 travel guides and this was one of them.
It contains 3 important maps: A map of Barcelona, a map of the gothic quarter, and a subway map. These maps are clear and well detailed.
By using the top 10 guides I managed to plan out all the must see places and the best places to eat - I definitely recommend the sagrada famiia. + there are top ten guides for each district so you can find out what is near you.
Out of the guides I have seen, this and the AA one are easily the best.

I ordered it together with the Rough Guide to Barcelona, thinking that it would be nice to carry in my handbag while on the trip and contain the most necessary information (which it does, ok).
Although the Rough Guide was much bulkier and heavier, I ended up carrying it with me all the time.
I think this travel guide is good if you dont have a lot of time and you just want to see the main things, and it is also quite good considering the small volume of it. For more information, get a more thorough guide.

Ideal travel guide for a few days in Barcelona. The book suggested more than we could possibly have seen in our time, but was a great starting point to focus us on what we wanted to see and plan our trip. We were staying outside Barcelona and travelling with kids so had no need of the nightlife, hotels, restaurant guides etc so cannot comment on those. Would recommend.

I love to travel & eat; and also like the TOP 10 guide. Often it's the first reference I would buy when I plan holiday to a new city. However, this Top 10 Barcelona is disappointing! I followed the guide to a couple restaurants and they were either like a 'tourist trap' or simply an non-existence!!! The first one served me hot shellfish (like octopus/cuttlefish) tapas that was lukewarm and reheated by microwave....I was feeling sick the whole night afterward. Another disappointment was after walking past quite a few dodgy scary alleys to find a restaurant recommended by the guide and eventually found out it didn't exist at all. In contrast, restaurant recommended by the small hotel we stayed at and another one we just found by 'following the local crowd' were much better.

We love city breaks and usually buy a guidebook. More often than not it is the Top10 book and this one served us well as usual. it is concise and quite compact, so good to carry around everywhere without being weighed down. It has all top attractions that ou would expect, presented in a quick and easy guide. Excellent price from Amazon too.
