A Palace It is Not

Fira Palace leaves a great deal to be desired. -It could use new bedding and decorating. The room is wornout out looking and uncomfortable. -The TV channels are very limited. -The reception desk is apathetic, unfriendly and not at all helpful. - The gym is worn down and half of the machines are broken. Really depressing atmosphere there. -The restaurant food is overpriced with very little variety of food offerings including room-service -The location of the hotel is not good for tourists because it is out of the way from the center of town and all activity...it is a dead neighborhood - It does not deserve the 4 stars at all

Recommended

Hotel is in a great location, close to Montejuic, nearby subway, easy to reach from airport by 46 bus line, big rooms, bathrooms, comfortable beds, nice pool, overall good value. For restaurant recommendations your travel guide is probably better than reception. Otherwise friendly and helpful staff and nice with baby.

Good hotel, poor breakfast

The hotel was central, comfortable and the staff were pleasant. Unfortunately, there was only one breakfast option - a full buffet for 18 euros - not much good for those who just want a quick light meal.

Very Good Hotel

Stayed at this hotel 4 nights with my girlfriend. Very large room, comfortable bed, and friendly helpful staff. Shower floor was slippery so requested and was given a rubber floor mat for the shower floor. Great location because it was close to several attractions and many different types of restaurants.

Good business hotel

Our second stay at this hotel - it is a mainly business hotel with a busy conference side. We were there during the international swimming event and the place was full of people involved in that. We were there as tourists and it suited us fine - very comfortable, large rooms, very efficient staff, and impeccably clean. It depends what you want - it is a bit impersonal, but the breakfasts are really excellent! If you want somewhere close to Montjuic, it's ideal, if you want somewhere close to the old centre, go elsewhere.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Eat at lunchtime - you can get a good meal all-in for 9 or 10 euros. Evenings are a very different story and hugely more expensive.

Solid Hotel

Although I got this as a last minute deal, I think it was well worth it. The hotel is about 1-1.5 miles away from Gran Via and a shorter distance to Plaza de Catalunya. It is not a busy street and it allows you to walk to several places. it has a full gym and pool, although some things look a bit dated, you have more than you need to keep in shape. Rooms are spacious for Barcelona and immaculate in terms of cleanliness. Wifi is complementary. Overall a good deal.

Barcelona stay

Staff very nice, professional. Room spacious, bed comfortable, large bathroom. OK location but you must walk to Plaza Espana to pick up transportation to Las Ramblas or anywhere else unless you want to pay for taxis (which can get pretty costly). Plaza Espana is relatively close, but it is a bit of a hike so if you have any problem walking or don't like to walk much, it can be an inconvenience. Hotel is kept fresh-smelling and cool in the summer (can't say that about all the local hotels)and feels serene and elegant. Eating at the hotel is not always practical because the breakfast buffet & dinner restaurant are very expensive. Overall good value for the price, just a bit far from the "action".

feels cosmopolitan

This is a very nice modern hotel with a lot of amenities, very few of which I actually used because Barcelona is so full of things to see and do that I wasn't going to hang around the hotel. Convenient to Metro stops but not right on a big street so print out a map from [...] before you get there. The rooms are nice and are clean. Only 30 min free wireless internet daily - can pay for unlimited. Staff helpful and speak English. Definitely get the breakfast - a little pricey but a great variety and you can load up to tide you over till supper with maybe just a snack as you tour. Good bar.
