“Excellent Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

Well located, helpful and friendly staff, very comfortable, food very good. Professional conference facilities were ideal for a large conference. The old bullring is close by, now a shopping mall. Overall the hotel, facilities and location are so good, this will be an annual event for me.

Stayed September 2014, traveled on business

The Crowne Plaza Fira Center offered wonderful spacious & comfortable rooms! We had 2 rooms with 2 queen beds in each room. There was plenty of space between each bed as well as on each side of the bed. Lots of counter space and a spacious sitting area. The rooms were clean & nicely decorated. We opted out on the breakfast as it was pricey & didn't have good reviews. There are 2 cafe's across the street offering great breakfast for half the price. It's about a 20 min ride from the airport. I appreciated that there were always taxi's queued up outside when we stepped out. The hotel is about an 8 Euro ride to the centre, but we always had difficulty getting the taxi drivers to understand where to take us when we were going back to the hotel. I would recommend that you have the address readily available when you step into the taxi & even be able to give them crossroads. One evening we were taken way further north & the taxi driver was calling his colleagues for help all on my tab! I would stay at this hotel again in a heart beat!

Dear Bakerswoodfox,

Thank you very much for your opinion.

We are so happy that you enjoyed our huge rooms. They are so big that two big beds can fit inside and still remain space as you checked.

In addition, as you noticed, we are surrounded by shops and cafes, and also well connected to the airport and all the interesting points in Barcelona.

We are looking forward to hosting you again!

Warm regards,

Enrique Escofet
Managing Director

A very modern and new hotel. I liked the standard very much. In addition, they have a large fitness center with modern equipment (not seen a treadmill like this) and a fantastic SPA, i.e. a small swimming pool with water massage and warm beds to relax in. Also, different saunas if you like that. The Wi-fi works well. The hotel is located close to Plaza Espanyol and the olympic arena, a 10 minute drive from La Rambla.

We are very glad that you enjoyed our hotel so much. We have just renovated our fitness room and SPA to adapt them to the new concept of wellness with the best technology and relaxing equipment.

As you noticed, our hotel is very well connected to everywhere else in the city, and surrounded by all the services required for a full Barcelonian experience.

We look forward to hosting you again.

I went to Barcelona in December and stayed here for 5 days, absolutely love it, price was good, great location very nice hotel and the staff was very nice. From there it is very easy to go anywhere in Barcelona, we took the bus from the airport and dropped us off at Plaça d'Espanya, walked two blocks and we were at the hotel. We stayed at the Hyatt in Paris a week earlier, paid twice the money and the service were awful. This hotel simply worth the stay

Dear Mary R,

Thanks for your opinion.

We are so happy that you had such a wonderful time with us. The hotel location is great indeed, because we are out from the busy downtown but close enough to be well connected by public transportation with the main places in Barcelona at the same time.

Thank you very much for your comments about our staff. We really do our best to give the perfect hotel service.

We would be more than glad to host you again with us.

Warm regards,
Enrique Escofet

A very well located and comfortable hotel for 5 nights. We had a sofa bed for our son and the room was large enough when it was folded out not to be in the way. Breakfast was good although perhaps unnecessary given the proximity of so many cafes and restaurants but convenient. We went to the Magic fountains a short walk away to bring in the new year and watched the fireworks from the hotel as the square was a bit crowded for children. A lovely trip overall.

Dear GuKetian,

Thanks for your opinion.

We are very glad that you enjoy our triple room. They are so big that once the sofa is unfolded there is still a lot of space.

We are very happy that you had a pleasent New Year's Eve in Barcelona.

Looking forward to hosting you again.
