“Memorable Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

I was one time before and because the location i choosed again and it couldn't be a better desition. My husband and I stayed 4 days for San Valentin. the staff were very helpfull and and pamper us with many details, thats why we can definitly choose this hotel again. Thanks to Mercedes Garcia and Maria Molina for your time and details.
The breakfast is a good deal, we had a variety and was great. Just dont forget to say at front office you will have the breakfast the next day coz its a cheaper price.
The room service were very fast and also good.
The location beside Sants Station where you can find the Metro and also trains outside Barcelona, you can also access to Tarragona stop (green line) that we found closer to move to the touristic places.
Around the hotel you will see places to eat as Pans & Company, some restaurants and a Super Market "Mercadona" (over Av. Roma) and if you walk 3 blocks to Plaza España (over Tarragona street) you will find a Shopping "Las Arenas" the food court its open on sundays.

Room Tip: We choose the room with view to the Monjuic and it was really nice with the lights

My wife and I have just spent 5 days here . Hotel is ideally located near the main railway station , Sants , which provides easy access to the airport and all the wonderful sights of a really lovely city . The hotel itself is reasonably priced with friendly helpful staff and the breakfast served is excellent . The bedroom we had was clean and comfortable and one could not find much fault ,if any , with the remainder of the hotel . On the whole a memorable stay .

Room Tip: Choose a room facing the railway station .

I have stayed in Expo Hotel Barcelona for 10 days, the hotel is very very good when compared with same hotel category in Paris for example. It is 3 min walk to a two metro stations Tarragona and Sants Estacsio which is the main Railway station for Barcelona. The room is very good, with private balcony and a dressing room. On the European standard, this room is considered to be spacious. The Staff is amazing and very welcoming with easy check-in and check-out services. You can find taxis just round the corner when you exit the hotel.

The only issue I had is with the room service, since the food quality was not so good. Also, it would have been nice if there was complimentary water in the room as well as tea and coffee

Room Tip: Choose a room on a high floor overlooking the park

This is big and very busy hotel at the heart of Barcelona. I chose it because of its excellent location right next to the train station with a fast access to the airport. I bet most people do...

It really serves the purpose.

I spent 2 nights at Expo Hotel Barcelona to attend a meeting. The location is very convenient at 2 minutes from the Sants station, but located on a quiet street. The room I got was large with a private balcony and walk-in closet. The furniture is a little old, but everything was very clean. The staff was very welcoming.

I just was one day in the hotel, but was perfect. My room very clean and comfortable, all what i asked was there when i arrived, the staff is very friendly and almost everybody speaks english and always try to help you. The service is wonderful. I just missed fresh milk for my cereals in the breakfast buffet.

Solo estuve un día en el hotel, pero fue perfecto. Mi habitación super limpia y cómoda, todo lo que había solicitdo estaba ahí al momento de mi llegada, el personal es muy amigable y casi todos hablan inglés e intentan ayudarte. El servicio maravilloso. Solo me hizo falta la leche fresca para mis cereales en el buffet de desayuno.
