You get what you pay for at Holiday Inn Express just off the central part of Barcelona. Easy access to Metro. Close to Marbella Beach and a nice walk along the shore with many attractions. The hotel is basic but clean! The rooms are ok with the exception of the hard mattress. The staff are friendly & courteous. The main... More

My first visit in Barcelona turned out to be a real adventure! So many things to discover and so many impressions that kinda overwhelms you! I took a taxi from the airport since I didn't know where to go and didn't quite feel secure enough to go by the metro. To be honest my first thought when we arrived to... More

If you've stayed at a HIE before then you'll know exactly what I'm talking about. It's a functional, no frills hotel, but I expect this is reflected in the rate. The bathroom sink in my room had a leakage problem and the electric kettle did not work but other than that it was fine. The mattress was very firm -... More

A nice hotel with friendly staff. Breakfast was great always able to get a table, not too busy. Rooms were a little small for family of four but still ok! Great street close by with fantastic restaurants to grab a meal and supermarket nearby. Didn't use the metro in Barcelona as we found taxis cheap enough, so not sure where... More

I booked this hotel as part of a cheap getaway for myself, my son and his best friend. We shared a room and found that the rooms were spacious, clean and quiet. The staff here are very friendly and always willing to help. The breakfast is good, with a wide variety of food, however it does get very busy. This... More

Stayed at the hotel for 10 days, the room was ok, the bathtub was blocked the first 2 days and we had to call someone to fix it, which was done very quickly. The bed was really nice. The breakfast wasn't good and the queue was so long you had to wait for 15 minutes before you start eating. The... More

The hotel is nice and clean; but the room was a bit small for a family of 4 including 2 children and the bed for the children wasn't comfortable at all for the oldest child. The area around had a lot of good and nice restaurants and it was a short walk to the beach. The breakfast and the service... More

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
