I stayed here as part of a business trip recently. It is worth considering if you are doing the same.
Located in the new exhibition area of Barcelona, it is a short taxi ride into the city centre, and that will cost you about €10 to €15 each way. It was not busy during my stay but I can imagine this hotel is jammed during the exhibition season, so book as early ahead as you can.
My room was spacious and spotlessly clean. It had a wet room instead of a toilet bathroom combo. Huge bed, a desk to work at and also a sofa if I wanted to "sit soft". The internet access is free and worked well. Great views from the upper floors. The full drop curtains actually overlapped and created the darkest hotel room I have ever been in, which is a positive for me.
It is also on one of the main routes to the airport and there always seemed to be plenty of taxis outside the hotel. Cost of a taxi to the airport seemed a bit high at €20 compared with going the other way into town.
Hotel P/F is a great hotel for business, either overnight or for longer stays for events and exhibitions. I would stay here on a short city break.
