Crowne Plaza Barcelona - Fira Center

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

hotel staff was not welcoming. room smelled when entered initially

The rooms are very large and comfortable. Everything is clean and modern. The bed was excellent. Everything is good.

I would highly recommend this hotel. Nice location with readily accessible main attractions. I would stay in the same hotel again

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.

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.

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.

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay. We were on our honeymoon and Barcelona was our last place to visit in Europe. Out of the 5 hotels we stayed at this was the best one! Great price, awesome customer service, free wifi, great location and our room was huge it was awesome. Can't wait to go back.

We were only one day but it was perfect. Perfect the location. Perfect the room. Perfect the hotel ...

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

The three of us loved the relative quiet of the neighborhood in contrast to the central part of the city. We still had easy access to metro and even closer access to buses. We loved the bathrooms. Rooms were spatious. There were computers for guests but these were very popular so sometimes a challenge. Family enjoyed exploring restaurants and bakeries in the neighborhood.

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".

Vacation for couple with 4 year old. Liked the size of room unusual in Europe to get this large for a reasonable price. We lucked on a very good deal through [...] by timing, 2 weeks earlier price was higher. Children under 6 are free. Buffet breakfast is expensive 18 euro per person, there are a few local places you can get more reasonable, these are not fancy and some Spanish will help get what you want. Location was fine not in touristy area, next to convention center(Fira), quiet and felt safe at night. Subway is excellent to get anywhere you want in city, station reasonable walk from hotel. Staff helpful when needed. Modern clean large bathrooms. 2 large beds in standard room. Pictures show nice pool and fitness center. We didn't have chance to use so no comment. Overall good place to stay.

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.

It was an overnight stay after a cruise. We did take a tour of the city on a Hop on Hop Off bus. I was disappointed that on the overview of the hotel, it stated there was airport transportation. That is misleading because they didn't have airport transportation. Taxis are always sitting out in front of the hotel, therefore, you don't need them to call a taxi for you.

The room was slightly larger than the usual and very clean. The shower with three jets was separate from the bath tub. There was a flat screen TV with very good reception, most programs were in Spanish but some news show were in English. The room included two queen beds, a love seat, coffee table, desk and chair and the usual closet spaces.
