This hotel is definitely not 4 star, but 3 at best. We booked two nights B and B but on the first morning when we went down to breakfast it was like a monkeys' tea party. Coffee is provided from three coffee machines, when we arrived, only two were working with a queue of about eight at each machine. Ten...

The Expo is located at a very convenient location a few meters from the Sants Station, with great access links to anywhere in the city and beyond via trains, metro and buses. Unfortunately, we were foolish enough to leave some cash in the room, without locking it in the safe (for which we weren't provided a key for upon check-in,...

We booked a twin/double, when I went to confirm, they said there was no doubles so we had I pay 10 euro to get a double. Seems to have happened to a few more. Wifi wasn't free and when I tried to use it, it was slow. No bath tub. Good location, close to SANTS station. Nice friendly staff and...

As previous reviewers have stated, selling point here is its under 5 minute walk to city's main train and metro station. Disappointed with reception staff's lack of interest and pro-activity in advising re facilities, sights, offers etc. Some had very little English. As advised on Tripadvisor, we booked executive room - very average - would not like to have seen...

The hotel is a walking distance from a major train station, Barcelona Sanz station. The station is a half hour train ride from the airport, which costs around 3 euros for a single journey. All attractions are quick metro journeys away from Sanz Station. The Nou camp is 3 or 4 stops away. I would stay here again as the...

We stayed in Barcelona a couple of days before and after a cruise. We chose the hotel because of the price and access to transportation. At the time it was $152 Euro/night. I cannot complain about any experience we had at the hotel. We arrive early both from the fligh, and the return from the cruise (8am), and we were...
