I have just returned back from the fantastic City of Barcelona following a weekend away with some clients, this is the second time I have used this hotel and for good reason, The rooms are a generous size with a good standard of finish with ample storage for a long stay if required. Each room has a great desk area to work, and soft chairs to relax in, and the room is fitted with the largest TV I have seen in a hotel room. The large Bathroom is fitted with separate walk in shower and a bath/shower with good lighting, all finished to a high standard.

The reception area provides clean ample space to sit and relax , and the reception staff are very helpful, nothing was to much trouble.

The Hotel always has taxi's outside which is great, however some of the drivers all think they are Fernando Alonso, cost of a trip into the centre costs 7-10 Euros, so you also have the choice of dropping onto the metro and 3-4 stops and you are in the Centre.The metro is 500 meters around the corner, which is very handy, block tickets are available, but the charge to the centre 3 Euros.

Also for a nice stroll out you are right next door to the Museu Nacional D'Art de Catalunya a very impressive Museum which you have to clime fountain lined steps to to top where the view is very impressive.

If you don't want to travel into town to eat you have a number of restaurants on the top floor of the converted Bull Fighting Arena, just around the corner, below them is a small but compact shopping mall with some major high street names.

Whilst this is a business type hotel it allows you to enjoy a good standard of accommodation at reasonable prices if your flexible. .

Room Tip: Ask for rooms with a view of the Museu Nacional D'Art de Catalunya

I love this hotel. I would have no hesitation to recommended this hotel to anybody or even go back myself and I don't like he same hotel twice.

The location is great, right in the heart of Barcelona with a short walk to the Magic Fountains and the National Art Museum, leading to the Playa Espanya shopping mall and the Metro station to get elsewhere.

The staff are extremely attentive and friendly and no job is too small for them, you ask for it, you've got it.

The rooms are so spacious and have everything you could need for a room for the night, if not more.

The food is wonderful, some classic dishes as well as Catalan twists on others.

If you can, upgrade yourself to have use of the club lounge, you won't regret it. It's worth the money, trust me!

The hotel is located in a quiet residential neighborhood, away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
We travelled as a family and had booked 2 rooms. On checking in early at 12.30 PM we were provided one room immediately to store our luggage and freshen up (Check In time was 3 PM). The check in procedure was quick and easy.
The rooms are very spacious and some have two queen beds and can comfortably accommodate a family of four in one room.
The bathroom is also very spacious.
It is conveniently located close to the Bus Touristic stop (5 minutes walk).
Very close to the port and the airport (driving time from both is around 15-20 minutes).
Town centre (La Ramblas) is 10 minutes by taxi (Fare Euro 11-15).

The Fira Center hotel is a very pleasant hotel in a quiet residential neighborhood, within easy walking distance of the Placa Espania and the Parc de Monjuic. The rooms we stayed in was large, with a nice bathroom, and a view across the Carrer de Lleida - a quiet thoroughfare. Walking around the neighborhood is very enjoyable. Room service with a smile is available. Various attractions in the city - the Sagrada Familia or the old city downtown - are easily reached from several convenient metro stops that are within a short stroll.

My husband and I spent two nights in the crowne plaza after a cruise. The hotel has lovely rooms which are very large with huge bed and plenty of space to sit and relax. Free wifi also which was quick and efficient. We had a club room which was well worth the money as the club lounge is lovely with an excellent selection of food and drink available all day. The receptionist pepa in the lounge is very efficient and extremely helpful. She seems to have an excellent knowledge of barcelona and is extremely efficient. The buffet breakfast was also very good in the lounge and I would say it was not necessary to pay for breakfast in the dining room as there was a Vast selection of food available. The staff are all very good and treat all clients as VIPs I was unfortunate to have an accident when in barcelona and can't thank the staff enough for their assistance. I was also given a lovely fruit basket, water and note from the manager which was an extremely thoughtful touch for a hotel and shows their level of customer service. Coffee machines in rooms are a good touch. The location is a bit out of the way but it's not hard to get to the centre of barcelona. You are 2 minutes from the Magic Fountains which are fantastic to see at night. The old bullring has restaurants at the top where you can dine and watch the fountains. Very much a business hotel which shows in its standards. Great for a few days in barcelona if you like comfortable beds, great staff and are not worried about being a little bit out of the way. We only spent 2nights in the hotel but if I had a longer stay would probably choose a hotel with an outside space to relax in which was the only thing missing for us at this hotel. The hotel however met all our expectations on the trip we had and we would use again if we stayed in barcelona. Thanks once again to all the staff who assisted me their customer service skills are excellent!

Room Tip: Club room is well worth the extra

I spent two days at this hotel, which is located near Plaza Espana and the exhibition centre. The room was big, silent and very well equipped. Beds are very comfortable. Staff is very heplful and kind. Breakfast includes fresh squeezed orange juice (I hate commercial juice). It is very easy to get to the hotel from the airport (bus for only 2.10 €, even faster than train + metro). I recommend it for business trips and why not for tourists: it is a commercial area but very close to centre.

Room Tip: My room with window to Lleida Street (I think) was silent. In general streets around the hotel are...

We spent a weekend at the hotel. Beautiful Hotel, rooms are big and very clean. staff is wonderful. breakfast is nice. definitely a 5 star hotel. the only fault I could find is the location - pretty far away from the center of Barcelona but just a short metro ride away.
