Stayed here for the night while in the city on business. Fast and efficient check-in, although no mention of my IHG status on arrival - while the guests checking beside me were offered bonus points or free drinks in the bar - though this could be down to the room rate. Room was comfortable and clean, although looking a little... More

My husband and I spent 4 nights here in mid-September; it was our first visit to Barcelona. The staff were friendly, the hotel was basic but perfect as a base for exploring the city and the room was always very clean. A number of reviews have mentioned the busy breakfast area, but we generally found it to be fine with... More

The obvious: this is a HIE so room size and amenities are what they are. Newer property with the updated look. Some wear and tear here and there but overall clean and convenient. Reception staff helpful. Breakfast area is quite big and feels like a cafeteria. Usual HIE options plus local add ons like ham and dried salami. Overall better... More

An excellent hotel, close to Poblenou restaurants and business district as well as metro. Great breakfast with long hours. Bar service in lobby. Good for families. Internet available. Late checkout available. Pool would be nice. The beach is not too far to walk. Taxi from Airport 20 Euros.

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
