It was great for the money we paid on an off-season book-ahead deal but probably would not pay the full price. It was off-season so the rooftop was not in use. The location is very convenient next to Sants station. There are cafes and a supermarket right outside the door. The roo

Stayed here as a base for watching a game at the Camp Nou. Being so close to the Sants train and metro station means it’s really well located to get about town.

The hotel itself is tired, bland and in a nondescript area.

The desk staff were young, polite and helpful but the res

Dear 160stevea, Thank you very much for posting your impressions about your last stay with us. I was very sorry to read that the experience that you had with us wasn’t up to your expectations. About the attention with the rest of our staff, I deeply regret the treatment that you have received which is not our style at all. Anyhow, our standards of customer care will be review by the General Manager. On another hand, thank you for your mention about the desk staff. I have shared your kind words with the team. This makes us feel so proud of them. Regarding your comments about the rooms, I would like to inform you that we are working on updating them. It is very important to us that the hotel can always provide the maximum comfort to our guests and make them feel like at home. The most important thing for us is to win your confidence back. I hope that your previous stay will not prevent you from returning to the Hotel. It would be a pleasure to welcome you again and treat you as you deserve. Best regards.

The location of the hotel is good - right by the railway station. The rooms are perfectly adequate and clean. There was a bit of a smell of drains in our room. Nothing exceptional but served it’s purpose when in town watching Barcelona play. Not a hotel to take a mistress...

How do I get to the hotel from Terminal 1?
Dear guest, There are 3 different ways to get to the Expo Hotel Barcelona from the airport. The first one (and the quickest) would be by taxi. You can find taxi service in the exit of each terminal. (The price should be 30-40€ and takes 20 minutes more or less). The second one would be by train. Trains departure to Terminal T2 and arrive to Barcelona ‘Sants Estació’. Every our there are 2 trains and the trip take 45 minutes. Then you would only have to walk for 3 minutes and you will be at the Hotel. And the third one would be by bus. There are ‘Aerobus A1’ and ‘Aerobus A2’ for each Terminal Respectively. It departures every ten minutes and the trip takes 30 minutes. When you get to the ‘Plaza Espanya’ stop, you have to leave the bus and walk for 10 minutes until you get to the Hotel. Don’t hesitate to ask me any further questions you may have. Kind regards, Beatriz Pajuelo Quality Department

Hi, Las Ramblas is a 30 minute walk away. Beach also. The fountains and Bull ring are only 15 minute walk. Hope that helps.
