Stayed here after a trans Atlantic cruise. Service was great, staff was friendly and restaurant was excellent. Very modern, clean and comfortable. They even let us check in at 11 AM when all we wanted to do was drop off our luggage

I was pleasantly surprised by the spacious guest room and bathroom. Nice bath amenities. The front desk was always busy and not super helpful, but not unhelpful either.

Great location - easy 10 min walk to metro and really close to the Magic Fountains. I would stay here again!

We stayed at the Crowne Plaza Fira Center for a night pre- and post- cruise out of Barcelona. While not quite walking distance it was a quick and easy taxi ride to Las Ramblas/Gothic Quarter, Cruise Port and Sagrada Familia. There is also a mall (a converted bull fighting arena) that is walking distance from the hotel. The hotel was very comfortable and they were able to check us in early each time we arrived. Taxi's were always readily available and the front desk staff was very accommodating. We had one dinner at the hotel and is was very frustrating. It took a long time for the waiter to acknowledge our presence and the food was not worth the wait. There are a few restaurants near the hotel, but we did not try them.

The size of the rooms is what makes this hotel great. You have a huge space in a standard room. Two king size beds, a working desk, two chairs, and a huge bathroom with a walk in shower and a separate bathtub. The check-in and check-out service was not very efficient, but the overall service was good. I was there for a business conference, and the meeting rooms were all good. In some of the meeting rooms we had to pay extra for Wi-Fi, and that's not acceptable being a business hotel. The location is alright, but if I had been in Barcelona for a vacation, I would have stayed closer to the old town and the La Rambla.

Chose this hotel to be a little way from the bustle of the centre of the city. Close to the Magic Fountains, MNAC and the Miro Foundation. Lovely rooms,beds,linens and bathroom. Staff superb. Enjoyed being looked after in the Club Lounge by Raphael and the others.

Everything you would expect from a Crowne Plaza. Nice quiet room. Good service. Location is a bit out of the way, but it's not too far from the airport. The 'express' lunch menu is not exactly express.... Took too long to get served, we had to abandon dessert to get back to meetings.

We chose this hotel as part of a BA package and were very pleased with the outcome. It is close to Montjuic and the Place Espanya. The room was large with a view overlooking MNAC, we could hear the music from the Font Magic at night. Each day our coffee, chocolates, water and biscotti were replenished. The bathroom was clean with a large tub, spacious shower cubicle, and loo and bidet in their own enclosure.

We didn't eat in the restaurant (or are there two?) as we wanted to try lots of local food. We did have drinks in the Piano bar and a sandwich before our flight.

Entry to the spa is 25 Euro for hotel guests, which I think is a bit pricey for a swim and sauna, lovely as it looked.

Breakfast was not in our deal and at 18 Euro per person would have to be amazing to justify the price.

Wi-fi was free throughout the hotel.

Room Tip: I suspect all upper floor rooms have great views.
