This hotel is directly opposite Sants Station and Metro, which makes it an ideal base for exploring the city as well as easy connections to airport and international rail destinations. It has around 15 floors. Reception is pleasant and check-in was fast and efficient by Simone (a good ambassador for TC Hotels). Room was on 9th floor. Large, clean, well...

Good position: next to Saints train station, Placa d'Espana and metro stations. City center very easy to reach by subway. My room (4 night stay) was very wide (double, 1 person use). The one of my friend was very very small. She was staying for 2 nights only. Too hot inside bedroom: the first thing I did when I came...

The Expo hotel is situated very close to the "Sants" railway station and about 2 hundred meters from "Sants" metro station...only a few stops from the centre of the city....the hotel is perhaps in need of a little "updating"...and our room was a little "spartan" but we did have a fridge and safety deposit box as well as free with-fi...

Stayed here with two friends back in September. When you walk in the foyer is really represents a modern hotel however the rooms are so dated and it's such a let down. Our room was located on the floor below the pool which at times was super noisy. But apart from that, the staff are really friendly and food at...

I have visited Barcelona 15-20 times and have always enjoyed my stay, not the case this time: Expo Hotel had seemed a convenient stopover for our group during several days in the city. On arrival at 9pm midweek, our check in took an unbelievably long 45 minutes; even once the line of people to check in had cleared we were...

After reading reviews I was apprehensive about our stay, however this hotel was perfect for our city break. The location near Sants station was great for Metro and train to the airport. I would also recommend using Tarragona Metro as really quiet but only has line 3 (green) and actually closer than Sants! We asked for a quiet room and...

Got a twin room instead of double room which never happened before with other hotels, it is common sense to make sure a single person booking a double room should get a double bed, not a twin bed. My request for changing the room wasn't taken care of. Definitely a bad start! I have booked this hotel for four nights,...
