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.
