“Good conveyance and relaxed environment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

We went in the 2nd week of December. By European standards, rooms were spacious. Staff is friendly and helpful. It is easily accessible from the airport, port, city center and la rambla street.
Plenty of restaurants near the hotel.
My family and I enjoyed our stay there and would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for city view.

This hotel offers a generous room size, friendly and professional service and is well located for transport links to the airport and the city centre. Breakfast could have been better so if I went again I would probably just go for a room only. Free wifi was great!

Room Tip: Ask for a higher room.

We went to see Elton John in concert and we were very pleased with the wonderful decor of the hotel. Also the position where the hotel was situated. We had the most delicious lunch in the hotels Resturant, the food and service were first class, the Maitre d' was very professional. We only had one problem I put the wrong room number on the door for Breakfast! However the Desk Manger not only sorted out my problem and gave us the breakfast complimentary even though the mistake was mine. We love to go back to the Crowne Plaza and also recommend the beautiful hotel

Room Tip: We booked a mini suite and it was great

I booked this hotel after a lot of debate about which hotel I should choose in Barcelona. I discovered it between the IHG website and Tripadvisor.

I got a great deal and spent a fantastic few days in Barcelona with Crowne Plaza as my base.

A 5 minute walk from the Placa de Espanya Metro station, the hotel is located in a very convenient location.

They don't lie when they boast of the largest hotel rooms in Barcelona. Any larger than this, the rooms will have to be classified as Suites or Banquet halls.

Service is warm, the view is good, wifi is free.

Must highlight that the staff was very helpful and answered all queries.

The view from my room overlooking the school playground where little children played Football better than I ever will, will be a memory etched in my mind.

The hotel is close to La Ramblas, Mont Juic, Spanish Village, the old Roman Barcelona, Gran via, Camp Nou and a few metro stops from the Sagrada Familia. There are many restaurants and tapas bars nearby. Also, It took me just 25 minutes to the Airport.

While in Barcelona, I used the metro and walked a lot and it was great.

Of course no hotel is perfect. The hotel did have its share of plumbing and elevator maintainence down times on the last day. To their credit, they kept me informed about it in advance.

Let's just say I would stay there again and would happily recommend the Hotel to anyone who asked, or didn't ask.

Have just returned from a 4 night stay at the Crowne Plaza Barcelona hotel. Cannot fault this hotel at all. Wonderful well appointed rooms with large comfy beds. Massive TV and big walk-in shower in the Bathroom. Excellent customer service. Just a couple of minutes walk to the musical Fountains. From there it's just a few minutes walk to the Metro Station, Olympic Village or the old Bull Ring shopping Arena with its great selection of restaurants on the top floor. Barcelona is a fantastic city to visit and explore. Glad we chose this hotel as there's certainly plenty to choose from.

I had a pretty good experience at the hotel which sufficed my needs while I was there on leisure. In great proximity to the train station which was highly accessible to most parts of Barcelona and beyond. The surrounding area also had great attractions and awesome food options which we enjoyed exploring.
Rooms were sizable with wonderfully comfortable beds. There's one thing about the Crowne Plaza brand which I embrace, and that's the little kit that helps you to sleep better, a Lavender pillow mist and aromatherapy oil for that relaxation feel. Room and amenities definitely met up to expectations.
Drinks at the bar is rather pricey, so we did give that a miss. Other than that, am pretty sure it's a hotel you can take comfort and enjoy in.

We came in one day early for a back to back cruise, and, after our
experience at this Hotel, wish we had stayed for an extra two or three days.
Everything about this Hotel is excellent. Here are some specifics to
exemplify what I am referencing.

The Hotel is located in a semi-residential/ business area that
provides many opportunities within short walking distances. Nearby the
Hotel are restaurants, small markets, and only two blocks or so is the City
Center which has many shopping opportunities. It is a little over halfway
between the airport and the Cruiseport. The Hotel is centrally located for
most of what you would want to do in Barcelona, or it provides easy access
to transportation that will bring you to where you want to be.

The rooms of the Hotel are sized fairly standard by European
standards, but are more than adequate to handle guests with large amounts
of cruise luggage. The bedding, cleanliness, HVAC system operation, quiet
level, and bath are all excellent. The bath, particularly, is exceptional.
We had a fabulous walk-in shower that we wish we could have taken with us.

The staff of the Hotel are exceptional, and English is not a problem. We
found all staff to be extremely helpful, and want to particularly note
Corina who checked us in. After an all night flight that put us at the
Hotel at 7:00 Am, Corina checked us into out room early with no problem. We
felt so blessed for that experience, and we badly needed a good place to
rest.

For dinner that evening, we opted for sandwiches in the bar and
experienced very good food and great service. The prices for our meal were
very much in line with what you would expect in a metropolitan Hotel.

For cruisers, another important suggestion would be to use taxi service
to and from the Hotel. Our taxi fare without gratuity from the Airport to
the Hotel was close to $25 E, while the fare from the Hotel to the
Cruiseport was under $15 E. Since we had lots of luggage, a mini-van was
necessary, and this was not a problem.

We are very thankful to all involved at the Hotel for making our one
night there so meaningful. Next time, we will definitely spend more time
there before our cruise.
