"The best practical guide" (The Sunday Telegraph)

"And the winner is... Time Out, of course. Cutting-edge insider info means you'll be eating, drinking and sleeping in the right places." (The Sunday Times)

"The Time Out series is excellent for cities" (Tim Moore The Observer)

"The Time Out guides, updated regularly by savvy locals, are still the best available for hipster travelers of any age." (The New York Times)

Review

These guides take you underground, under the skin of various cities. Fun and insiderish.

I bought this guide before I went to live and work in Barcelona for a couple of months and it proved invaluable. It has plenty of information about where to stay, eat & drink. It provides detailed and honest reviews of most of the tourist attractions that Barcelona has to offer, and as these guides are updated annually, the prices are always accurate. It also includes maps, photos, a mini language guide ( Spanish & Catalan) and facts about Barcelona's history, culture and traditions. Overall a great guide for anyone planning to visit or stay in the wonderful city of Barcelona.

I used this guidebook in May 2009 and found that many of the bar and restaurant listings were reliably tasty and accurately described. Having also done a lot of on-line research into bars and restaurants (to find the latest information I could), I was happy to see that many of my on-line findings were already listed in this guidebook.

A useful and entertaining guide, clearly written by people who know and love their city and are happy to share their insider knowledge, rather than simply churning out the usual 'must-sees'. It seems bang up to date, and in common with all the Time Out guides we've used, is nicely irreverent, which makes it a good holiday read. We also found the maps to be very accurate (something you can't always take for granted in a guidebook).

Bought this for a recent trip and found it a great reference, and the maps completely sufficient for all our needs. We did encounter a few errors - map references were wrong, street addresses off - but nothing that we weren't able to overcome with general intrepidity.

This book, in a nutshell, is the only book to use when you are away in BCN. The maps are second to none and the reviews, prices and opening/closing hours for museums, galleries and restaurants were spot on. Bravo Time Out!

Our family went to Barcelona for 6 days and we used the guide day and night for anything at all we wanted to know or find.
We found fantastic restaurants and bars around any area we were at each day, used the maps to navigate, and any information could be found quickly and easily.
The prices were not accurate although this is May 2010 edition and we went to Barcelona in July, but I suppose it is very difficult to follow the soaring prices of the touristic attractions.
Highly recommended!

I think the Kindle and iPad Kindle apps are great but not for travel guides, particularly this Time Out guide. Information that is contained on a single page in the paper guide is spread across multiple kindle pages making it impractical as an 'on the go' guide. To make things worse there is no header/footer information to inform you where you are in the guide - so it's back to the inadequate table of contents or index and then scrolling through dozens of pages. Unfortunately it gets worse - where are all the maps!!

Utter rubbish, stick to the paper version.

P.S. 5 stars to Amazon for the no-quibble refund.

I am a late convert to Time Out Guides and find them essential and invariably the best one-stop shop. However, this edition has been rather hastily published without proper proof reading. No one has sought to update the cross-references to the maps with the result that turning to p344 does not yield the promised information. This is annoying but, on its own, manageable. Some of the smaller maps for suggested walking tours are slightly misleading and do not quite tally with their bigger counterparts at the back. I have also reached the conclusion that I would like a pull out map as many other guides provide.

Elsewhere, the book is not as easily navigable as it should be. The writing is second to none and only once has a Time Out restaurant guide really let me down (in Madrid as it happens)but the strap line on the cover "Eat Drink Shop Sleep Explore Enjoy" has begun to grate as to the perceived importance of exploring a city. Indeed, the lack of a proper index is increasingly infuriating.

As I said, I would still recommend taking the guide - just be aware of the issues with the maps and, if you are so inclined, consider using in tandem with another guide. Meanwhile, I hope the publishers will remedy the faults by the next edition.
