Expo Hotel Barcalona review

Nice hotel, close to the station and tour bus stops, However the room could have been bigger and less noise in the hotel at night.

Good location

Pros: The location.
This hotel is clean and functional with helpful staff but for me the best thing about it is its location. It is a two minute walk from the Estacion Sants train station which has a direct connection to the airport (line RD2 Nord - 15 minutes) and a subway station which will connect you to the Placa Catalunya and (from there) to the rest of the city. Turn right onto the main road when leaving the hotel and its a 10 minute walk to the Plaza de Espana shopping centre and the Font Magica de Montjuic.

Lovely stay

I enjoyed my stay at this hotel. I wasn't expecting to love it as much as I did. Everything was perfect from checking in to checking out. The staff were wonderful were wonderful and always smiling with one even calling up to check if the room was OK. I lived the fact that I was also able to check in earlier as I arrived so many hours earlier than check in time. I missed the chance to use the rooftop pool but there's always next time. Will definitely stay at this hotel again especially as its very close to a main station.

Great hotel in a great location

Stayed as a party of 8. Excellent location just a 2 minute walk to Sants train station. Good choice of bars and restaurants within a 5-10 minute walk. Breakfast (not included in our package) was well worth the money - loads of choice (about 20 different kinds of bread), cooked items and the usual fruit and continental fare. Everything was replenished as needed - probably the best hotel breakfast I've had. The room, although not luxuriously appointed by any means was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed including a fridge/mini bar. The beds were extremely comfy and I slept like a log for the whole time I was there. Air conditioning and a balcony were a welcome bonus. There was a walk in wardrobe with hanging rails, drawers and safe plus loads of room to store cases etc. The bathroom was large and well fitted and most of all, spotless. Towels replaced daily and room serviced daily. We also had a lovely view of the Magic Fountain and could clearly see the sea in the distance. We didn't experience a lot of noise. Yes the TV was an old fashioned CRT, but we weren't there to watch TV so it didn't bother us. The hotel has a lovely indoor bar (for those chilly nights) and a fabulous outdoor bar on the rooftop terrace, along with a small swimming pool and sunbathing deck. The staff we encountered were all helpful and polite. My only critique would be there was no balcony furniture which would have been nice. I would not hesitate to stay here again when I next visit.

fab hotel in a great location

booked this hotel for a group of 8. slightly concerned over some of the room reviews but needn't have worried. The hotel is a 2 minute walk from Sants station - perfect for the R2 train from the airport. Quiet neighbourhood with bars and restaurants a lot cheaper and more authentic than in the overpriced Ramblas district. The room was spotlessly clean, extremely comfy bed. Yes, the tv is old fashioned but it had bbc news 24 - we didn't go to Barcelona to watch tv. We had a balcony with a view of the Magic fountains of Montjuic and we could also see the sea in the distance. There was a large walk in wardrobe with a free safe. The room was air conditioned and this was a valued extra as it was hot when we visited. We paid extra for the buffet breakfast and it was one of the best I've had. So much choice and everything relenished quickly. There is an indoor bar on floor 3 as well as computers and printers for printing off boarding passes and booking trips etc. The rooftop pool is small but just right for a cool off when it's hot. Also a nice terrace bar - perfect for a sangria in the sun. We had brilliant wifi connection in our rooms and throughout the hotel - no drop in service. All the staff we encountered were pleasant and helpful.My only small critique is that there was no furniture on the balcony which was a shame. And although the tv was serviceable it was also cumbersome and in the way ( it was on the corner of the dressing table and we did keep knocking it). Overall though this the perfect hotel for us and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
