This hotel is definitely not up to usual Fairmont standards. I was there for a few days in early Feb for meetings. My room was freezing cold, and in order to have wireless connection I had to step outside of my room. Maybe that's why there was a chair in the hallway. Hotel was fully booked so I could not...

Location: close to the airport, CampNou and Barcelona University but relatively far from the center and the beach. Accomodation: nice large room (1023) well equiped for working thanks to separated office table and a strong wifi connection (room 1023), very comfortable bed and quite nice view on the green hill and sport center. Perfect cleaning service. Food: breakfast rather average... More

The hotel is in a very good location and suitable for those attending a convention as it is only a few minutes away from the convention centre. Also very close to the metro which can get you in town very quickly. I think the owners may have changed so the hotel isn't as good as it used to be but... More

Large hotel but still very customer orientated - the gym, although slightly old had Technogym equipment. The pool area was very well maintained and although it was off season could still be used. Tapas readily available in Foyer.

I made a reservation for the last 2 nights of February because I was attending a conference next door in the Catalonia Congress (convention centre) Palace. Despite the relatively remote location of hotel to the tourists attraction areas, its location is about 300m from the Zona Universitat Metro station (L3). The room was large, with nice view of Tibidabo. Surrounded... More

I attended a pre-conference planning meeting at the Rey Juan Carlos. The hotel is impressive architecturally, and I was informed it was built over 23 years ago to support the summer olympics. That explained the memories of hotels during that era, where beds were simple, the rooms a bit quirky, and at the time, hotels tried to install command centers... More
