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

Just back from 4 nights here, having read the reviews of it. Great location just across from Sants station, which is destination for airport train and is major Metro hub. (Metro tickets easy to buy - just choose your language on the machine - and the system is slick and modern.) Yes, rooms slightly dated and basic but they are... More

Excellent value for your money, the rooftop bar had an amazing vieuw just like our room. Beds were comfortable for Spanish understandings. The staff is more then friendly and the breakfast was extremely good! The restaurant was okay, but not as good as the breakfast. If I have to name one thing for critique, it would be the price of...

The hotel is very well situated, the building is impresive, the breakfast is good and the swiming pool is great (one of the better views from Barcelona)....BUT, the rooms are from 70's (furniture, decoration, matress, pillows even the bed sheets are from those days) and there is a really bad smell in all of them. They need an urgent update... More

I got this hotel as mystery hotel offer on lastminute.com and was disappointed to read the reviews as most said it was dated and not so nice. However, our room was nice and spacious with flat screen TV and balcony. I was missing having tea making facilities but only because I had to stay an evening in the room while... More

We booked in Feb for a 10 night stay in July. We specifically requested a room with a view and a double bed. We arrived and were given two single beds pushed together with no view. As it transpired there were no good views in this area but we were not bothered in the slightest.Even with a balcony there is... More
