I'm a light sleeper and irregular noises from within a room wake me up. My room had one in particular - the window rattled. It was windy when I visited Barcelona and the wind caused the window to rattle in its tracks. Unfortunately I didn't figure out the fix until the morning of my one night stay. The solution - fold up hotel notepad paper and cram it between the track and the rear of the window where it rattled. Obvious in retrospect, but disappointing I had to figure it out and deal with it. It didn't help that my room was next to the maid service, which went into full activity at around 8 am when I was trying get some extra shut-eye. The room and beds are very comfortable, and it's thoughtful how they separate the bathroom and main corridor with a small entry way. Two benefits: isolation from corridor noise and smell barrier from the bathroom. To me, Barcelona is notorious for sewer smell that seems to percolate up from every drain in every bathroom everywhere. I've visited Barcelona many times over the last twenty years, and that hasn't changed.

Spent a couple of days recently in this lovely hotel. Very friendly check in, rooms are very spacious, we had twin rooms, beds are super comfortable. We ate in the restaurant and had breakfast, the food and attention was excellent. We had a drink in the club lounge, and we were looked after so well by Bruno, he was very attentive and really personalised our visit to the CP Barcelona. Hotel is in a great location, number of sites on your door step, the musical fountains, Mount juic and it’s cable car. It’s a couple mins from Espanya metro and you can get the 46 bus to / from the airport from place d’espanya. Also managed a swim in the pool and some well needed rays on the roof top terrace.

This was the best hotel we have ever stayed. We have stayed in many hotels in different countries and this was hands down the best experience. The staff was incredible. Nothing left undone. We were taken up to the Club room right away and given a map of the city with all of the must sees pointed out. The HR rep running the club room was so sweet and helpful. The room was amazing....spacious...cleaned spotless daily and amenities were incomparable. Would HIGHLY recommend! Luxurious stay!!!!

Me and my girlfriend stayed at the Crowne Plaza in Barcelona for our 5 night city break. The staff were always very attentive and made our stay feel very welcoming. Being a member of IHG my room was automatically upgraded to an executive suite which was very big and had all the amenities that we required. On our last day we visited the on site spa which we found very relaxing and very reasonably priced. We never ate in the restaurant as we preferred to eat out when visiting a new city but we did have a drink in the bar which was again manned by attentive members of staff. There is a running station just by the main entrance which I have not seen before but thought was a great idea with free bottles of water, local running routes of varying distances and towels etc for guests at the hotel to use. There is a Metro station about a 5 minute walk from the hotel which is extremely easy to use and very cheap so you can get around the city very easily. Also I recommend the restaurant ‘Taps’ which is just across the road from the hotel for a great tapas meal, we went there on our first night as we didn’t arrive until around 21:00 and just wanted somewhere close and this place was perfect and the food was delicious. I would definitely recommend the Crowne Plaza and should I visit Barcelona again I would stay here again myself.
