This stylish, modern 4-star hotel has a prime location in one of Barcelona's most important business centres, near the Barcelona Sants train station and the Montjuic exhibition centre. It's very close to the city's historic centre, the hotel's convenient location means it has good access to Barcelona's fast, efficient public transport network, as well as the city's major roads. The hotel is located just off one of Barcelona's main thoroughfares, Avenida Diagonal, which cuts through the financial and commercial heart of the city. Two kilometres away you will find the cultural centre, based around La Rambla and Plaza Catalunya, where Modernism meets Gothic and runs down to the coast.

Prison walls

This hotel looks great from the lobby, however our double room looked more like a prison cell than a 4 star hotel. The beds were tiny, (I'm 157 cm) they were uncomfortable and the walls and door frames were dirty and beat up. Less than impressed with this hotel. Much more like a hostel with a 4 star hotel price.

I would stay there again

The hotel is over 20 Euros from the airport by cab. The Front Desk Staff was very helpful and I really enjoyed the 'relaxing space' which is the third floor of the hotel. Breakfast was pretty normal for a European hotel, and a nice surprise was the 10th floor terrace with a great view of some of Barcelona while you had a good cold glass of wine. The hotel rooms were 'Spartan' with twin beds, a single pillow and an aging bedspread. The bathroom and amenities were pretty standard. The air conditioning system was quite noisy, but welcome nonetheless... As with most hotels I have stayed in in Barcelona there is no hot water/coffee service so you need to bring your own pot and coffee if you want some in your room. Free Wi-fi was a plus and worked well. A great Italian restaurant right across the street (interestingly not one that the Front desk staff recommended, so I am not sure why...) and walking distance access to metro and to the train station. The cost was low for a Barcelona hotel of any substance, and if you are there for a convention make sure you know which of the centers you are going to as there are more than one. Take your time and learn the metro system as it is very inexpensive and can get you most places you want to go. I would stay here again.

Both good and bad stuff

+ Very friendly staff + Late checkout even when rather full hotel + Open air pool + The bathroom is indeed 4* - The room itself is just 3* - Very small old-type analogue box TV - Air conditioner didn't work. Had to change room. - Floors & Walls not well isolated against noise - Wi-Fi connection on the upper level flows often breaks down. Not good on business trip.

Clean, pleasant hotel

The first room we were checked in to (on the 9th floor) was small and not up to 4* standard. The room also didn't have wifi so we asked to move, and were given a room on the 6th floor. This was much larger with much better facilities, though still a 'standard' room. My rating of the hotel would have been lower had we not been moved to the new room as the room on the 9th floor was rather tired-looking as well as small. We found staff very variable in attitude and helpfulness too. The hotel is well placed for the metro and Sants train station, and is in walking distance of the Placa Espanya. The hotel has a small pool on the roof, but unfortunately this is only open until 5pm, and it would have been nice to be able to use it later than that. There is a nice terrace bar/ cafe (although pricey).

Great Hotel

Great value for the price. Yes, there may not be many places around the hotel, but you are close to the main train station and to two subway lines that will place you anywhere in the city within minutes. Rooms as spacious as they get in this city and clean. Cost of food (breakfast) was very reasonable with a very aboundant breakfast buffet to suit any European or American traveller.

Expo Hotel Barcelona

Äänieristys huoneissa todella huono! Aamupala loistava, tosin henkilökunta ei muistanut kertoa, ettei kuulunut hintaan. No, olisihan sen toki voinut itsekin varauksesta tarkistaa. Sängyt eivät missään nimessä neljän tähden hotellin luokkaa. Uima-allas ja yläkerran terassi auki vain kesäisin. Kolme tähteä olisi sopiva luokitus tälle hotellille.

Pludselige ekstraomkostninger - men fint hotel

Da vi ankom til hotellet, havde vi betalt for de 3 overnatninger, vi havde bestilt. Alligevel blev vi i skranken informeret om, at der ikke var betalt for morgenmad (€8,5 ekstra pr. person pr. morgen), og at vi meget billigt (€6 pr. person pr. nat) kunne opgradere til et væsentligt bedre værelse. Vi var glade for, at vi sagde ja tak til begge ting, men servicen i forbindelse med de her ekstraomkostninger var ret elendig, og morgenmaden var ikke de €8,5 værd. Rengøringen på værelset var super, og både rengøringspersonale og portiers var super søde - receptionisterne var mindre servicemindet. Men et fint hotel - nok ekstra dejligt når deres 'roof-top pool' er åben fra maj måned af. Værelset var bestemt udmærket. Beliggenheden er fin til konferencer o.lign. og tæt på Barcelona Sants, den store togstation - men lidt langt væk fra La Rambla og andre seværdigheder.

Hyvä hotelli hyvällä paikalla hyvien kulkuyhteyksien lähellä

Ks. otsikko. Muuten oikeastaan pelkkää hyvää sanottavana, mutta aamiaisella tyhjenneiden tarjoiluastioiden täydennys toimi huomattavan hitaasti.
