“Great hotel to stay on business”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I stayed for one night at the Crowne Plaza on a business trip. It's about a 10-minute walk from Pl. Espanya and approx. 25 minutes from the airport by bus. It is a well-equipped hotel with large rooms / beds and fully kitted out bathrooms with a separate shower and bath. My bed was large and comfortable and the room itself was very quiet. I slept very well, in fact. In the morning, I used the gym and although it's small, it was kitted out with all the regular cardio machines, so there was plenty to keep me busy. I also recommend the restaurant which is fine dining and serves an interesting menu of regionally influenced dishes. I enjoyed my stay and would recommend to anyone looking for a business hotel in central Barcelona.

Green Features: They clearly have a sustainability policy, although they still offered little bottles of shampoo etc, as well as a larger dispenser in the shower, which is a bit silly. Usual towel and linen change policy, although not relevant to me because I only stayed one night.

We stayed at this property for the F1 Grand Prix weekend. The staff were fantastic, the hotel and room were excellent and the club lounge was perhaps the best we have experienced. On arrival we were escorted to the dedicated club check-in and offered a drink. The club lounge has an extensive range of snacks and drinks and serves an excellent breakfast. Our room was large, clean and comfortable. Being situated near the convention centre the hotel is only a short walk to the metro and only 2 stops from the historical quarter and marina. Would recommend.

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.
