“Great hotel very comfortable stay.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW via mobile

We booked 4 days at the Crowe plaza in Barcelona. It is wonderful hotel with very nice big rooms that have been recently refurbished.

The service was also very good and staff were extremely pleasant. We had a slight mishap where there was a leak in our bathroom but the staff responded immediately and upgrading us to a suite for the rest of our stay.

The location is not in the city centre but not far from most attractions, with the Espanya tube station only a 5 min walk from the hotel.

Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend the hotel to other travellers.

Cheers

Shaz

I travel a lot for Business, being bound to chain hotels and travel policies, and although I cannot really complain, this hotel was a very pleasant exception for a long time:

- Rooms are clean and spacious
- Bathrooms are excellent, with German fittings, separate Toilet, Shower and Bathtub
- Bathroom Amenities are well selected and generous
- Coffee Station is excellent (!) - Nespresso in 3 choices, instant coffee, coacoa, several teas, chocolate, biscotti
- Well equipped minibar
- Free and speedy Wifi
- USB Charger, HDMI Connection, huge Samsung Screen
and many more well appointed details

The killer is the lounge which you get with either an Executive Room or for a minimal surcharge of 40 EUR:

- excellent Buffet Breakfast
- ample selection of Drinks and Spirits, including unlimited Moet and Chandon
- very tasteful snacks

A real find in an excellent location in Barcelona - if you have every trusted my reviews, then book this place now!

This hotel is great and we would book again if going to Barcelona. It's close enough to the main attractions to be convenient but far enough from the crowds to be peaceful and quiet. It's easy to get to further locations on public transit ( a few mins walk away). The Hop On, Hop Off bus is also a short walk away. The Magic Fountain and shopping center are within walking distance.
The rooms are modern, very comfortable with free wifi and bathrooms are spacious and clean. There is a second door at the entrance to block sounds from the corridor but we didn't need to use it. There is a restaurant downstairs which we did not eat at. Nearby there were some local cafes. Casa de Tapes served the most delicious tapas. Staff at the front desk were helpful and friendly.

What can I say this hotel is just amazing from the decor right down to food. Best hotel room I've ever stayed in with the best facilities. Such pleasant and kind staff. Right around the corner from the montejunic fountains and a short bus ride away from the beach. I love barcelona anyway because of how easy it is to get around by train, bus or even by foot and and also because of the culture and beautiful city that it is. I feel so relaxed and at ease whenever I come it's like a home away from home and this hotel just makes it even better. Stayed with my boyfriend for 5 nights on an employees staff rate so it was excellent value for money we both thoroughly enjoyed it and I will definitely be returning in 2015! Thank you CP Barcelonaaaaaaa x

We stayed here for one night and absolutely loved it! We got the train from Salou and then walked from the train station, it took about 20-30 min but there are also plenty of taxis & the Metro.

The room was fantastic, my current favourite. It was very spacious and modern with a huge TV and bathroom as well as plenty of USB ports and plugs. The view wasn't great, just a view of nearby apartments & the local gym. On a side note, the hotel gym is currently been renovated but the hotel provide access to one that is just around the corner.

In the bathroom, there was a separate shower cubicle and bath with a range of products to use. There are plenty of towels and two XXL dressing gowns. The bath filled up very quickly and was heavenly to have a soak in after a long day.

The beds aren't too big but are very comfy and clean with no nearby noise disturbances. Limited tea, coffee, milk, biscuit supplies are provided as well as a mini bar stocking chocolate, alcohol and other refreshments.

We didn't eat at the hotel but noticed a restaurant on the Reception floor and the hotel provided a excellent breakfast service. There was a menu door hanger which allowed you choose from the many breakfast options and select which time you would like it delivering to your room for a small price.

If returning to Barcelona, I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed for 4 nights and was pleasantly surprised to find this hotel in an excellent, easy to find area. We did request a nice view room but ended up with a view of apartments opposite. The room was great, spacious with a huge t.v and big bathroom. The double beds are not average size, be aware and didn't give us much turning room however we slept comfortably with no noise disturbance from outside or inside, in fact we often thought we were the only one's in the hotel. Limited tea, coffee and milk supplies but a good working fridge which we used to store our water bottle in ( shop over the road sold water rather cheap). We didn't eat at the hotel and found a cafe within 5 minutes walk which was reasonable and catered for vegetarians. We had to ask every night for additional towels, we sometimes were left none and sometimes 2 (there were 3 staying in the room) this could be annoying if your back late and want a quick shower before bed. On the last night of our stay we arrived back to the room around 11pm and were shocked to find wet towels draped all over the floor from the door into the bedroom, we asked at reception what had happened to then be told our room had flooded whilst we were out and they had forgotten to remove the towels. Needless to say we waited for housekeeping to arrive and remove them, leaving a wet carpet and wet clothes that had been left on the floor when we went out. Staff at reception told us we had to wait until the morning to speak to someone about this. Although the staff in the morning were very apologetic it was abit late to be offered use of their laundry facilities free of charge as we leaving for our flight home. It was a shame this happened as the rest of our stay was very pleasant and would book again if I ever returned.

Room Tip: Double beds are smaller than average opt for king size.
