Finding this hotel was easy. Just get off the underground at Tarragona, and its about 2 blocks away. The reception and my room was spotlessly clean. The breakfast was buffet style and excellent. The only drawback with this modern hotel was the noise. The traffic noise was consderable even with the windows closed and the walls paper thin. However, I...

Although this hotel is situated very close to the main train station and metro, I have stayed in far better hotels. The staff were very friendly and the buffet breakfast was great but I did NOT have a good night sleep! The walls are paper thin and I heard lots of late night activity...... A good locaton for easy commuting,...

My husband and I stayed here on the second leg of our honeymoon. We spent the first leg in Paris, with a similar hotel budget. Based on our Paris hotel budget and what we got, I'd argue that you get a great deal with Expo Hotel and its amenities. The hotel is situated in a quiet neighborhood that is within...

Location for this hotel is the key, as 3 mins walk away from train station. Land in airport, take taxi or train and your in hotel in 20 mins. Touristical bus stop near by, metro station with direct to Ramblas, short walk to place de espana, direct line to football stadium, this has been my home for a long time...

Very quiet and comfortably near the arena (east), the train and subway station to walk even with luggage. Excellent buffet breakfast for 10 euro (gotta try their sausage). Many places to the south walking distance. Easy subway ride to La Rambla. Best of all - the hotel rate so unbelievable for a 4 star. The picture shows how close the...

I live in Southern Catalonia and always stay at this hotel when visiting Barcelona, mainly because it's conveniently situated right next to Sants station and particularly outside peak periods is extremely good value - never paid more than 50 euros a night which for a reasonable standard hotel in Barcelona is certainly not a rip off. The cheaper rooms are...

We were on a four night " Room only" stay in Barcelona and felt we could not have made a better choice of hotel as far as the location went. The main Station( Barc Sants) is literally round the corner. There are direct trains from the airport to this station. Very pleasant walk from the station to the hotel if...
