Fairmont Rey Juan Carlos I

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I stayed in Fairmont for 3 nights to attend a conference. Didn't have time to explore around, but there are nothing much around too because it is the outskirt of the city. Just 15min drive from airport. The room is comfortable, clean and quiet. The staff are friendly and helpful. The hotel has a beautiful garden. Good for a business hotel.

I was there for business organization and staff was really helpful. There was a diversity of food and well prepared dining hall. Rooms were big enough and everything you need was there. Special thanks to Mr. Duarte for his arrangements :)

Compared to all other hotels we went to in Barcelona, the Fairmont had by far the best service. It is not only the name you pay for, but the service and the accommodation as well. It was really worth it and I would book it again without a doubt.

Great service, clean room and very nice hotel in general. Great breakfast (maybe somewhat expensive compared to others). Also a la carte is very good. Not very central, but easily accessible with subway (15 min to city). Very close to Camp Nou.

Staff was outstanding. Pleasant, helpful and courteous. Room was comfortable, current in design and furnishings and very well maintained. Only downside was the distance to the heart of the city. Fortunately the Metro was a very short walk and Barcelona has a very good Metro system.

Greater service at the fairmont although it’s a huge hotel ! Great rooms excellent food great fitness and spa Friendly and professional staff A bit far from downtown but ideal for conventions Walking distance from the Congress Center of Barcelona

The hotel was central to the many places we saw. Unlike some of the reviews I see here, I didn't have any language challenges with the staff, who were extremely helpful. Loved the Randall, who is at the front desk. He took time to learn a few key words in our language. Thank you very much! Will come here again!

The hotel was as announced. The staff was very kind. We had dinner at the restaurant out our arrival and it was good. Our room was excellent and all members of the staff treated us very well and kindly.

I recently visited Fairmont Rey Juan Carlos I for my birthday celebration and what an excellent pleasant stay I had. I’ve stayed in many Fairmonts and Rey Juan Carlos truly delivered Fairmont’s service standards. The location of the hotel is a bit far from tourist attractions but very convenient to/from the airport. Upon arrival check in was smooth, shortly after I was escorted to a newly renovated Executive Suite by Ismail, one of the duty managers. The view of the suite was breathtaking, with the city and camp nou in the background. My suite was immaculate with a very comfortable king size bed. Upon entering the suite there was a minor noise coming from the suite next door, as it was under renovation. Ismail was apologetic about the situation and immediately offered a new suite option. I had to decline the room change as the location of my suite was perfect and the view was mesmerizing. Nonetheless, the noise stopped and for the rest of my stay I had no further disturbance. This was my first time in Barcelona and Christian, head concierge, made sure I got the best of it. He helped me plan site visiting and gave dining options. Nonetheless, I purposely went to explore and got lost in the city. Public transportation is very accessible from the hotel, made it easy to move around. Services in the hotel are fantastic, the lobby restaurant is open 24 hours which made it easy to grab a bite or a drink anytime. In room dining was the perfect option to stay in for breakfast or dinner before going out. Upon departure, Irma at the front desk assisted with my check out in a timely manner and made it as effortless as it could be. Doriane and Isaac, the other two duty managers, were attentive and made me feel like home. Their precise care exceeded my expectations and made my stay memorable. Thank you Irma, Ashmed, Jordi, Christian, Ismail, Isaac and Doriane for all your help and making my first visit to Barcelona as perfect. I’ll come back to this hotel anytime and most importantly, I’d recommend it.

This hotel is undergoing renovations but service is not impacted. We used our upgrades as Fairmont Platinum members and the hotel put us in the Presidents Suite. We were surprised how large and luxurious it was complete with a baby grand piano and dining room for 10,and it's own jacuzzi. The hotel is spotless and everyone greats you by name. Everyone is very helpful treats you like a King and queen. Very impressed by the beautiful lobby and restaurant food quality. We ordered room service and it was quick and delicious. Would definitely come back and stay here. It is located around the University area and very safe for walking. If you don't mind taking a cab to downtown Barcelona it is a very quiet and relaxing.
