Recent guest reviews

A business hotel in a good location near transport and city center. Breakfast room had big windows and a basic array of foods. While my room had a nice view including a ledge style balcony it was small. Small; as in the size of a closet. The coffin-like bathroom shower situation was laughable. In the end, it was okay for my one-night inexpensive stopover. I imagine they have bigger rooms for more money but... not mine.

Very affordable hotel , walking distance from most major Barcelona attractions

The staff was very helpful, professional, location (central) near train station. We will stay there again.

Nice hotel, close to everything. Friendly staff. Banana

The staff is outstanding! Always courteous, informative, attentive.

Great location, nice rooftop terrace, friendly staff.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Very safe area. Train to rest of Spain and Europe is next door at Barcelona Sants train/subway station. Every sort of public transportation goes by here to see the city. All are very safe and affordable and just ask and someone will help you with getting the right one. The rooms are nice and clean and maids will really do an extra nice job when you leave a tip. Roma Restaurant across street is very good. Just take the R2 train from the airport and you can launch your adventures from this hotel. I would return every time due to convenience and reliability of this place and area. Just one bit of advice, do not eat at a place with color pictures of their food posted outside or on menu. Ask if fresh or frozen for seafood. Love the coffee and fresh squeezed orange juice all around Barcelona.

This hotel is next to Sants estación. Staff was very attentive all the time. Rooms are good but simple. I had very noise Neighbours and it was very noisy, walls are way too thin. A window that opens to a balcony to get fresh air in is always a plus.

I’ve stayed at the Expo 3 times. There was an increase in the rates over the past couple of years. 2 years ago it was a good deal, now it is about average for the area. **Do not get the single size room. It is tiny.** The rooms come with a balcony with some nice views of the city. The breakfast buffet is ok, but for 12 Euros you might find a better value at a cafe nearby. The location is right next to the train station with easy access to the airport, tourist bus, etc. The Arenas mall and many restaurants are within easy walking distance.

Espartano para tener 4 estrellas. Habitación/armario cuya luz no se podía apagar. Mesa mal colocada.
