Expo Hotel Barcelona

Reviewed 18 December 2013

In what sky did this hotel fetch its 4 stars ? It deserves hardly one of it !

A tiny room, without soul nor decoration, a hard bed, a TV dating the last century …

But especially an unpleasant and inquisitive reception (requirement of both ID cards of a couple, request of the telephone numbers and the e-mails), and which makes mistakes on everything (an unique bed wanted by e-mail but the planned room has two of it, a inconvenient change of name because they understood nothing in the demands nevertheless sent to Spanish), etc…

And to perfect the bouquet, they charge you more that the announced price (the breakfast announced in 8,50 euro's appears sudden in 9,80 euro's on the invoice).

To avoid !

My daughter had to stay one night in Barcelona on her way to Perpignon, so I booked her in to this hotel because it was right next to the station.
She rang me to say the hotel was fantastic the staff were soo helpful and she said the breakfast was superb.
She wanted to stay longer in Barcelona because of the hotel but this was impossible as I had already booked her onward journey.

She had such a lovely time there she is now planning to have a long weekend in Barcelona because she enjoyed her stay so much.

Location of the hotel is wonderful, Near to Barcelona Saints Station . Overall a good deal .Stayed three nights in the hotel . Morning walk to a Park near to hotel was a good experience . Only drawback is non availability of Indian TV Channels & Old model TV.

Great hotel if you want to get in and out of the city easily and still be in walking distance of the stadium Camp Nou. It is just 3 stops on the train from the Airport and is 150 m from the station. Modern, clean and very understated we got a fab deal from last minute's top secret hotels at just £68 for the night. No noise from the street and staff very helpful.

The stadium is just 25 mins walk away or 10 euros in a cab.If you are going to the footie this one is ideal for you.

The room smelled of tobacco, and it's just too old fashioned for the price they charge. The staff was not too helpful, toilet tarsiers were available upon request once you want more than the soap and shampoo. Wifi is not for free, tv is also charged extra for. The whole impression was smashed by the bad condition of the bathroom. The tubes and the walls needed renovation. Feels like back to the eighties. Dear management, please reconsider customer service policy, otherwise you will witness a rapid drop in your satisfaction statistics.

Room Tip: It's close to the train station, just two minutes walk. Also, the metro station is near which ma...

only stayed one night check in was fast and staff couldn,t be more helpful.room was on ninth floor and was noisy would ask for a quieter room if I stayed again.location excellent right near trainstation metro and airport bus.plenty of places to see within walking distance which is great when your only staying one night.would like to stay longer next time and make use of the hotel facilities.never been tothis area befor so was a lovely surprise.25 minutes on airport bus which run every ten minutes proximity to metro and train station makes this an excellent place to stay for a long weekend.

Room Tip: we were on the ninth floor which is the highest and found it noisey maybe due to the rooftop terrace...

Big Rooms that are clean. Same can be said of the bathrooms.

The location is next to the Sants train station. Its a good thing for some, but bad for others as its a bit of a chore getting to the center. The hotel looks a bit run down from the outside, which is the first thing you see when you get out of the station. But modern and nice from the inside.

Good views from the top and your balcony too.
