Clean room besides the carpet! Kind reception. Wifi works a bit slow so the need a bit of an upgraded! Strongly recommend to have a tap in the bar in front. Very kind, good quality tapas and nice to be able to sit outside on the terrace. And very reasonable price.

I had a conference outside of Barcelona in Sant Cugat and stayed here for 4 nights. I was really surprised at how clean and comfortable this hotel is. I was at first surprised at how busy it is, but later came to realize that this hotel is one of the few in that area. The rooms were larger than I usually get when in Europe, with a good sized bathroom as well. Access to the rail line was easy from the hotel, if not a little bit off the path behind a hospital. If I had to make the same trip again, I would stay here without any hesitation.

A bit out of the way in an industrial area. Swift check in by Maria who gave me a fine room (523). Very quiet and away from the lift. Room was very updated and very clean. Bed was great and I had a fine sleep. Bath very nice and clean with new towels too. Flat screen and had BBC - my Spanish doesn't go far. Breakfast was fine too. Fine stay and for a night - or a few nights on business I will surely be glad to use it again.

We stopped in this hotel on the way from Andorra to Valencia and really enjoyed our stay. Free parking, free wifi, very comfortable bed and soft bedding, had a good night sleep. The room was of a good size and clean. Our only complaint was the dinner service in the restaurant - the food was so bad that we wanted to cry! €20 wasted.. If you can, avoid the restaurant in the evenings at all costs - eat before coming to the hotel or go somewhere else in the area for a meal (if you have a car).

I stayed in this hotel for 4 days I was robbed ROBBED OFF MY BAG in the hotel itself and they did nothing , I lost 4000 euros , my passport , my I.D , credit cards and my whole 20 day trip was spoilt , I was robbed inside breakfast area 1. No security guard in hotel - any one can walk in & out without anything asked 2. No staff in dining area - any one can walk in & eat without even staying @ hotel 3. Only 1 person in Reception to take care of all guests check in and out 4. Far away place - this hotel is situated in a Isolated place on a highway , no taxis available , to walk to nearest metro also U need to walk inside a Isolated forest kind of place where I haven't seen a single person walking in 4 days .. Cleanliness is ok but as a traveller 1st and foremost thing we look is security ... which is not there and also I think the Hotel is solely responsible for my loss as even so called police in spain is useless & will not help as we r tourists & not citizens of Spain . I would request all readers kindly do not visit this place even though this is last place available in Barcelona to stay ...

This was probably my least pleasant hotel stay in Europe in a while. The hotel is in Sant Cugat tech park area, a drive from downtown, and it's a boring Holiday Inn Express, but that's to be expected, especially for the price. The staff were friendly and spoke great English (and presumably lots of other languages). There's plenty of outdoor parking. The entire property seemed clean. However, the wifi was essentially unusable. The walls between rooms were very thin, leading to noise all night. There were minor maintenance issues in my room (bathroom fixtures, hvac); I'm a platinum elite with ihg so presumably I got one of the better rooms, which means other rooms might be worse. The breakfast looked unimpressive (maybe I've been spoiled by other hotels in the area), so I skipped it. I had a 2-night stay booked, but the hotel let me check out a day early with no hassle, so I went to another hotel. I would not return, and would not recommend this property.

Hotel prices in the centre of Barcelona were over the roof, so we went here and rented a car. Apart from the location, this hotel is fine. Free parking, rooms can sleep 2 adults plus 2 children, reasonable comfortable. Staff is efficient and friendly, good choice self-service breakfast. Room was very quiet, so either had good sound isolation or we were lucky with the neighbours.

This hotel is situated in an industrial area, so don't expect any scenic views. However, if you expect a good deal, this place represents excellent value for money. The man on reception was especially friendly & welcoming, spoke very good English, provided a map of the city and its transport links and details of the best sights to see & how to get there. The railway station is no more than a 5-10 minute stroll away with regular trains (€10 return) direct to the main tourist area of La Rambla and all it's many bars, restaurants & shops reached within 20 minutes. The room (101) was spacious and spotlessly clean, with pristine towels and bed linen. The breakfast was plentiful and fresh, the staff friendly and efficient. I cannot fault this place, it's ideal for everybody, apart, perhaps, from those with mobility issues, but that's purely owing to it's less than central location. We got a taxi from the airport for €35, and buses regularly go back there from the La Rambla area of the city for €5.35. All in all, a very friendly, informative and well run establishment - if you can manage a few words of Spanish they will be very happy! I recommend this hotel, 4 stars from me.

This is a nice hotel, most handy for the local businesses in the area. If you are working in the Carrer Jesus Serra Santamans area it is walking distance, otherwise you will need a car or a taxi to travel around. You can walk to the Sant Joan train station in around 5 minutes from the hotel which is handy as it is a 3 Euro and 30 minute train journey into the centre of Barcelona (Placa de Catalunya) from here. You can also get a train from the nearby Sant Joan station into the centre of Sant Cugat (or take a ten minute taxi ride). The hotel is clean and the reception area opens to a bar and seating area with the restaurant at the back. Breakfast is ok but not the best choice of food. The are not many hot food options. The croissants are nice and the spanish omelette very nice. You get the choice of 2 prepared fruits as well as two coffee machines. All reception staff are very helpful and the best thing about the hotel. Rooms are a good size and clean and quiet. Overall recommended.

Average but OK Holiday Inn Express with easy access over the highway – roughly half an hour from Barcelona airport (during off-peak). Breakfast is pretty poor & dull: not many choices and industrial coffee machines. Not even toasted white bred with tomatoes available – very poor (the signature dish of Catalunya is “pan con tomate / pa amb tomàquet" and should not be missing). In addition to that the WiFi is really bad – apparently, efforts are made to improve but in the meantime be prepared for very slow internet connection.
