Standard of hotel is same as most other HI Express i.e. functional but not luxurious. 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

Hotel is located near the beach and a metro station to reach City centre as well as main attractions. Nice hotel, stay was very convenient. Continental Breakfast options were good. Distance from attractions is the main negative !

Clean hotel but nothing special about it. It's located close to the beach, we walked there and it took 15 minutes. It has breakfast for free but the breakfast room was super crowded. You has to wait a 10minute line to get your breakfast. Overall would recommend to families.

I visited Barcelona for 4 days starting 27 July 2014 and I stayed at Holiday Inn Express for the entire four days. Very well located. The hotel is just two blocks away from Metro Station. A ten minute walk will take you to the Beach. The neighboring building has a super market. The road parallel to this hotel is called... More

I have kids so we went late in the afternoon after all the nakedness cleared out. Also, fyi while we were there taxi drivers went on... More

This hotel is just okay. The walls are paper thin, we could here the people in the rooms next to us talking, coughing, sneezing etc. The breakfast is okay. The staff were very helpful and they made the experience much better. The location is quite good, only three blocks from the metro and Rambla del Poblenou. There is a foul... More
