“Staying in Barcelona at a very reasonable price”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

We found this hotel very suitable for our budget and our needs. At just over 50 Euro a room, during the hectic season, including breakfast, there was not much more we could ask for. As a Gold IHG member, WiFi was free too.
The hotel is a 5-10 min walk from the train station, where for 2.50 Euro you can travel within 20 mins to the centre of Barcelona. The staff were extremely helpful, breakfast was more than adequate and the rooms were spacious and clean.

Flying into Barcelona on the late evening Easy Jet flight, Transfer from airport by taxi was effortless and quick got me in early enough to get a pizza ordered through reception! Quality was good delivered by bike courier to door. Breakfast was good and met up with local colleague here for trip to Les Masies de Voltregà.

This Holiday Inn Express is a good overnight stopover for those on a road trip in that region. It is a bit confusing to find as there seems to be another Holiday Inn close by and the directions on the road signs are not very clear.
The rooms are acceptable and offer all amenities in line with the Holiday Inn Express chain. The best one is ofcourse the excellent complimentary breakfast ...it is very welcome. Parking is also free.
The location is not so convenient for those wanting to be in Barcelona city. But otherwise a good value hotel

I am a platinum IHG rewards member and try to stay at their properties whenever possible. I booked this hotel for a one night stay in Barcelona and was very disappointed. The front desk girls are courteous but their shabby appearance leaves a little to be desired. The lobby is spacious and looks modern and clean. However, the rooms are very small, the beds are typical European beds, hard and low sitting. We did not get any sheets, yes no sheets!!! I don't know if this is the fashion in European bedding but I believe it should be a hygiene requirement at hotels. The pillows were ver thin and we were only provided with one pillow per bed! It was like sleeping with no pillow at all. The room had a very small TV and no amenities whatsoever, no clock, or anything to that effect. The bathroom was dirty and you could see the mold in the shower corners. The bottom part of the vanity was made of a brushed nickel type of material and you could see smears of perhaps shower products or something similar. There was perhaps one small soap as shower amenity but nothing else. This hotel is more of a 2 star hotel and would be the equivalent of a super 8 highway motel than a Holiday Inn Express. I believe that HI needs to maintain consistency throughout their properties otherwise they will begin to lose their loyal client base. Because of this experience I don't stay in HI Express hotels in Europe anymore just based on the name and reputation, unless I throughly review tripadvisor ratings. The positive side is that it is very easily accessible by car and the parking is free.

I have never written a review before but thought I should share my experience of Barcelona while staying at Molins De Rei Holiday Inn. Even though I went with some trepidations as I booked a hotel outside of Barcelona itself....it all turned out perfect in the end. We only stayed for 3 nights but got to experience normal little town life and also what the city had to offer.

The room was quite clean (trust me am fussy with cleaniness), TV had only 3 english speaking channels but we werent there to spend the day in the room!, the staff...I wouldn't say were friendly but then again, we were stared at most places we went as I am black with a white partner so was treated with a kind of indifference. No quick smiles of greeting just a blank tolerance!

Distance to the train station was not far at all we made it every morning flat in 6 minutes (they must have peak hours as our first morning we spent 20 euros on tickets)! The next day we left for Pl Catalunya after 11am and bought tickets for much less. The cheapest way to travel was buying 10 trips on a ticket which came to about 11euros? for the two of us. Getting to and fro the airport was surprisingly easy.

We had much more help with the local shops in Molins de Rei about places to go see etc. Ali Baba the kebab shop was fantastic and the corner shop next to him.

I did enjoyed the continental breakfast although sausage and scrambled eggs were not served whilst we stayed there on 24th to 27th June 2014.

Room Tip: We stayed in a room on the 3rd floor facing the supermarket and not a pip! It was very quiet. On t...

We've stayed at the hotel for a week. The location is rather far from central barcelona, how ever the transport is very easy to manage (takes very few rides to understand the system). The surrounding area is very homey, 'small town' kinda vibe.
I recommend the place highly.

It was a good little hotel, which was about twenty minutes outside central Barcelona. The staff were very friendly and were always happy to help, especially with queries on the city itself. The hotel is very close to the train station, there is a supermarket right next door just in case you need some extras. I lost my phone in a taxi en route to the hotel and they were extremely helpful in trying to locate it. Breakfast was decent, offering a continental breakfast. The hotel is what it is, for a quick stay it is perfect. For all the people that are moaning about the location it might be an idea to stay in central Barcelona? Twenty minutes is good in my books and you get a real feel for how the Spanish really live. The twin room was clean and tidy and we were allowed to have a smoking room, which was a bonus. The cleaning staff were also very friendly. All in all, good.

Room Tip: Rooms that avoid being near the main road as it can get quite loud.
