Lovely clean hotel but hard to find even local taxi driver found it hard to get there,helpful staff and complementary breakfast,good variety but more or less same every day. Sant cugat holiday inn express is in zone 2, for local metro,so we bought 20€ ticket every day which gave us 8 journeys to travel to and from the city centre... More

When we booked this hotel I was initially worried that it was too far out from the centre. I was very pleasantly surprised by the rambla de poblenou just around the corner. After having tapas there followed by a stroll down to the beach I realised it was in a fabulous location in an area I wouldn't have otherwise visited.... More

The room is good, and very clean. You need to make a register to have access in the wi-fi (otherwise, it can cost 12 euros per night). The hotel doesn't have a good "room service", it's a "delivery company" who makes the dinner, so it's better also buy food outside or go to a restaurant. Also, they don't have a... More

I assume this is for the Holiday Inn Express Barcelona City 22 Hotel. Kids under 18 get to stay with you, breakfast is amazing. Fantastic location, just a walk away from the LLacuna metro, which is like two stations away from Las Ramblas. Staff very helpful, they give you tips on what to do and what not to do. The... More

We visited this hotel for a few nights and overall enjoyed our stay. The room was a little small for a family of 4 but I guess that is to be expected when staying in a major city. The hotel staff are wonderful and very friendly, clean rooms, pretty much what you would expect from a Holiday Inn. We had... More

Free continental breakfast (was very busy when we were there) . 5 mins walk from LLacuna metro station, The nearby Rambla del Poblenou is a pedestrianised road with restaurants that leads down to the beach but other than that there is nothing else near the...

We stayed here before and after our cruise in a family room. It is clean and has everything that you need but the beds are rather uncomfortable. There is a complimentary breakfast which is a bonus and there is a local Rambler which has lovely traditional restaurants along it for an evening of tapas. The beach is 10 minutes walk... More

I used this hotel to spend a few extra days in Barcelona after being on a cruise ship for 12. This hotel is resonably priced, clean and has an average breakfast included. The front desk staff was very helpful recommending what to see, places to have tapa's right around the corner and how to use our time wisely. Rooms are... More

It was the second time I stayed in this hotel and I have to say that is very convenient one when you are going to just pass couple of nights in Barcelona. The price is not bad. The rooms are average, nothing fancy. Internet is OK and is quite close to the metro station that can take you to downtown... More
