“Great stay - excellent value - clean rooms - good beds”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

We enjoyed our stay at the Crown Plaza Barcelona - Fira Center. The hotel is very clean, with modern upgraded rooms, reliable free wifi. Points to consider:
* The beds were very comfortable, noticeably better than many other places we have stayed in Europe.
* Hotel is a good 5 minute walk to the Espanya metro station. I generally prefer to be closer... but it's no problem to walk it in good weather.
* There are restaurants in the area, but the better restaurant options seem to be in different areas of town.
* The Magic Fountain is an awesome evening attraction... and this hotel is an easy walk from there.
* Staff was very helpful, friendly and good for English speakers.
* Hotel prices are a great value, compared to the prices in the more populated areas.

We did not use the restaurant, so cannot comment there. I liked staying the in Plaza Espanya area... it's off the major tourist path, but is a major hub for airport buses, metro and train service (for day trips out of the city). The staff also had some good recommendations for restaurants in the general area when we did not feel like headed over to the more populated areas. I would stay here again for sure.

We stayed at the hotel for 4 days during Christmas and the overall experience was excellent. We had a room with two double beds which more than accommodated us two and our five year old son. The room itself is very spacious and with all the amenities needed for a relaxed stay (smart tv, minibar,coffee and tea). What we enjoyed most was dinner at the hotel's restaurant and room service. The food was very good and the prices reasonable for Barcelona standards. The location, even though not very central, is ideal if you don't want to be right in the tourist track. Metro station is within five minutes walk and the same goes for the Monjuick Magic fountains.

Room Tip: Rooms with two doubles are good value for money.

From check in to check out the service was exceptionally friendly yet still professional. From supplying maps and offering tourist advise to arranging room upgrades and extended check out times, nothing seemed to be too much trouble. Our room was spotlessly clean and plenty big enough for a long time weekend. Breakfast was plentiful but the staff did seem a little stretched when the restaurant was full. Overall I thought the hotel staff did a great job and made us feel most welcome. I would certainly stay again.

If there is a Crowne Plaza where I am going I will always take a look as generally speaking they are a reasonably ujp market brand. This hotel certainly had excellent rooms - very large and comfortable and I must admit that I do like a good sized room. The TV was superb - in fact the largest TV screen I have ever seen in an hotel so this was a rather impressive feature. The bed was comfortable and the facilities perfectly good.

Breakfast was unfortunately not up to the standard we expected and I do enjoy the international breakfast which is generally served at good hotels. However I think this may have been more of a glitch than anything and it would not stop me going again.

This hotel is situated right in the middle of Barcelona and of course there are many local restaurants and so forth to visit if you choose not to dine in , which we did not but it was a Sunday evening and there was no dining inside.

Parking is in an adjacent car park - not cheap but where is in Barcelona?

We thought this was excellent value for money but recently looking to book again I was stunned by how the prices had increased. So check it out but beware of a price hike. We in fact decided to stay elsewhere because of this.

This hotel is clean and near subway station.. Walking distance to National museum. We stayed at several hotels in Spain, I believed the front desk staff at this hotel was the best. They communicated very well, pleasant and offered their recommendation honestly.
We planed to visit Gaudi's places, they recommended us to buy tickets from the hotel's computer and that was a good move.
Their WIFI is excellent.
I love my room. It is spacious, clean. The bathroom is nice.
It is a big hotel......

We booked a british airways mini break and the hotel was great.we arrived mid morning and were immediatly able to go to the club lounges and check in and our room602 was a very nice suite 2 very comfortable beds a small balcony looking over the city , a very comfortable lounge with very large TV . Amenities were all white company the bathroom was split in two, shower area and basin then glass door to toilet and bath with a door into either side.
We had breakfast in the club lounge and there was a good choice freshly squeezed orange juice and Moët for a bucks fizz ( nice touch) bread meats cheese fruit yoghurts pastries. Hot bacon sausages eggs potatoes. Plenty of cereal so all good.
The staff in the lounge were all very courteous helpful and very friendly , Raffael, Bruno and olga.so a big thank you to them for making our stay memorable.
I did especially love moet on tap!!!
We had dinner one eve ending and it was very good the paella was great and and the turbot and lamb especially you.
The hotel is minutes from th museum of Catalan art and the fountain does a light show at 9pm great to watch.a tourist bus stop is near too which takes u straight up to mont juic the cable car and Olympic park .taxi down to the port isapprox10 euros. A little further out of town be we liked it .

Spent 5 nights here in March 2015. Took the executive package so we had access to the Club Lounge and the service was awesome. Olga at the Club Lounge was a pleasure to deal with. There was a full breakfast, snacks and alcholic drinks any time of the day and you could also take your guests (two guests per couple). The rooms were large and very clean and modern.

Hotel was walking distance to Montjuic and Plaza Espanya and about half hour to the main centre - Les Ramblas. Not a problem as we did a lot of walking in Barcelona. The best way to see the city. Beautiful area with lots of restaurants, shopping etc. Would not hesitate to stay here again.
