We were looking for a budget friendly hotel for our first trip to Barcelona and this hotel fit the bill. Very convenient location and close to the Sants train station. Easy to travel to from airport and also to cruise port. A very basic "no frills" hotel. Clean, comfortable and quiet. Very helpful staff with directions, etc.

This is a lovely hotel with all basic facilities, whilst the rooms were a little dated, I would still recommend this hotel. The location isn't in the absolute center but isn't too far from it and is within 15-20min walking distance to the magic foundation and the buzz. It's also very conveniently located next to Sants Estasio station which is... More

The location is right next to the Sants train station making the Expo hotel a great central location in Barcelona. We walked to the centre of Barcelona but got the metro back, great location, not right in the centre but close enough to walk and see sights on the way. Breakfast was brilliant, plenty of choice. The pool was small... More

My partner and I stayed at The Expo Hotel, Barcelona late March 2014. The lobby was well lit and welcoming (business like), concierge spoke English(although we do try to speak the local language when possible) and all was very professional. We were told that we had an upgrade which was a bonus. The rooms were clean, bed was comfy (not... More

The location next to the Sants train station makes the Expo hotel a great central location in Barcelona. The train from the airport stops there and makes getting to your hotel from the airport simple and inexpensive. There is also a metro in the train station which makes getting to all parts of the city easy. The Hop-on-Hop-off tour bus... More

We thought we would try a different hotel this time. The Expo is about 100m from Sants station so we got the train from the airport. Check-in was very easy, lovely room and a fairly good breakfast. The rooftop pool was closed as they were refurbishing it but it looked pretty good. The location of the hotel is great as... More

This was our first stay at the Expo hotel - we wanted to be near to Sants station and it is only a few minutes away. The check in was quick and they told us that we'd booked a standard room but they were all taken so they upgraded us. The room was long and narrow with 2 single beds.... More
