The rooftop pool is more of a pond. The room was completely bare and very noisy. We also had other peoples' smoke fumes coming into our room through the air conditioning. The location was good for ease of exploring the city, mixed levels of friendliness from the front desk staff, although all were efficient.

Travelling with a child it was excellent to have a pool on the roof top. Staff was friendly and helpful. Wifi was slightly slow and the room looked as if it hadn't been renovated since the 70-ties. It worked well as a last night in Barcelona hotel but I wouldn't call it good value for money.

We arrived 2 hours early for our check in having had an early flight from Leeds Bradford and wanting a few hours kip before we explored the city. We walked into the hotel reception to be welcomed by the lovely staff at the Expo Hotel who told us our room wasn't quite ready but would be soon. However as we... More

Found the hotel to be very modern and clean, with a 2 minute walk to the train station or less than 10 mins walk to city centre. also surrounded by great bars/restaurants. However we found our room to be very small and didn't get a good service on arrival or departure. Found the bar service very good but the drinks... More

Please ignore the negative reviews about this hotel, it's Fabulous! Room was modern and clean. The staff were friendly and helpful. Despite BCN Sants Rail station on the doorstep it is possible to walk anywhere. Walked to the Beach, Las Ramblas, Nou Camp and Sangrada Familia to name but a few. They are all over a mile away but with... More

Fantastic location close to the Sants Station; easy to find the hotel after arriving from Canada. Just a few minutes walk. We were using the metro a few times a day and also the train to Montserrat so the location was great for this too. We enjoyed the roof top pool a lot and the free wifi (Spanish say wee-fee)... More

We've returned to the Expo Hotel three times and love it. There are faults but the good stuff is outweighed by the bad. The location is excellent, next to Sants station for easy access to train connections, the airport train and the metro. Also very close to Tarragona and Espanya metro so you have more choice of connections. The neighbourhood... More
