“Expo Hotel , Barcelona”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2014

My wife and I have just spent 5 days here . Hotel is ideally located near the main railway station , Sants , which provides easy access to the airport and all the wonderful sights of a really lovely city . The hotel itself is reasonably priced with friendly helpful staff and the breakfast served is excellent . The bedroom we had was clean and comfortable and one could not find much fault ,if any , with the remainder of the hotel . On the whole a memorable stay .

Room Tip: Choose a room facing the railway station .

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 January 2014

I have stayed in Expo Hotel Barcelona for 10 days, the hotel is very very good when compared with same hotel category in Paris for example. It is 3 min walk to a two metro stations Tarragona and Sants Estacsio which is the main Railway station for Barcelona. The room is very good, with private balcony and a dressing room. On the European standard, this room is considered to be spacious. The Staff is amazing and very welcoming with easy check-in and check-out services. You can find taxis just round the corner when you exit the hotel.

The only issue I had is with the room service, since the food quality was not so good. Also, it would have been nice if there was complimentary water in the room as well as tea and coffee

Room Tip: Choose a room on a high floor overlooking the park

This is big and very busy hotel at the heart of Barcelona. I chose it because of its excellent location right next to the train station with a fast access to the airport. I bet most people do...

It really serves the purpose.

I spent 2 nights at Expo Hotel Barcelona to attend a meeting. The location is very convenient at 2 minutes from the Sants station, but located on a quiet street. The room I got was large with a private balcony and walk-in closet. The furniture is a little old, but everything was very clean. The staff was very welcoming.

I just was one day in the hotel, but was perfect. My room very clean and comfortable, all what i asked was there when i arrived, the staff is very friendly and almost everybody speaks english and always try to help you. The service is wonderful. I just missed fresh milk for my cereals in the breakfast buffet.

Solo estuve un día en el hotel, pero fue perfecto. Mi habitación super limpia y cómoda, todo lo que había solicitdo estaba ahí al momento de mi llegada, el personal es muy amigable y casi todos hablan inglés e intentan ayudarte. El servicio maravilloso. Solo me hizo falta la leche fresca para mis cereales en el buffet de desayuno.

This hotel was recommended by my Spanish friend to me and my boyfriend. We stayed at the hotel a week before Christmas and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is in a convenient location, next to the Sants train station which connects straight from the airport and is a 2 minute walk to the hotel. It is next door to two metros which was very handy! The hotel itself was very clean, modern and friendly. On arrival the receptionist was very welcoming, gave us a map and she mentioned we can come to the reception for all kinds of information about Barcelona like good places to eat out. We had a double superior room, which was very spacious with a big balcony, didn't have any problems with the room. I would definitely recommend this hotel and I would come back again.
