I have recently returned from a 4 night 5 day city break to Barcelona staying at the Holiday Inn Express Barcelona 22, having read various reviews on accommodation in Barcelona I chose the City 22 due to it's location situated in the business area it is very close to local shops/bars and restaurants, it is also very close to the beach and tube station. The hotel it's self was the normal good Holiday Inn Express level with clean comfortable rooms in modern decor the majority of guests during the week were there on business or were Spanish families. Breakfast was buffet style with a good choice of items and regularly refilled. It was a 4 minute walk to the tube,with a 10 minute transfer into the centre of town.
We did all the sights using the hotel as a base and even had time for a day on the beach which again was used by the locals sun bed hire was 6 euro's for the day and just walk back towards the hotel for cheap food & drink without paying expensive beach prices. I know some people would baulk at the thought of staying in a Holiday Inn Express for a holiday however for a short city break where all you want to do is crash at the end of a busy day in clean comfortable safe accommodation its ideal.
