I stayed at the Hotel Fira Palace mid-February on a business trip. It is very close to the beautiful National Art Museum of Catalonia and about 30mins walk to the main shopping area on La Rambla. There are also various types of public transport available nearby if you aren’t feeling energetic.
The rooms are modern, clean, spacious and bright with huge Smart TVs which means if you don’t speak Spanish you can still watch something in your native tongue on the net. I spent quite a bit of my first day working from my room and on two occasions staff walked into my room, the first time they knocked and came in to replenish the minibar and the second time two maintenance guys doing work on my floor who didn’t think it necessary to knock barged in and as neither of us spoke the other’s language it made for an interesting “discussion”!
Apart from the interruptions the hotel itself is in a good location and has the necessary amenities for business travel, i.e. iron and board, hairdryer, tea and coffee making facilities and the WIFI is adequate. The food in the restaurant is decent and the breakfast buffet has a good choice. If you are in Barcelona on business it is a good base to work from but if you are looking for a hotel with a bit of a buzz you won’t find it here.
