“Well located, parking facility.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2014

Spend 3 nights on business trip to Barcelona. Hotel has parking underneath, convenient though access to underground garage is narrow so bigger size car will take better driver. Rooms are what you expect from Holiday Inn Express though location and staff put it up a notch. Breakfast has good selection, more then the usual. Wi-fi worked very good with no up nor downs, maybe depended on the room location compared to server. 1 block from hotel is walking street with many bars, restaurants. Trendy and a must for lunch as they all serve outside. (weather permitting)

Location is close to the metro and walking distance to both the beach and Sagrada Familia. Rooms are nice and clean and a free continental breakfast is included. Reasonable rates. Unfortunately, the wi-fi service is very poor with frequent drops and less than 1mbps access over the course of four days. In addition, the wi-fi is turned off at 1pm. I wouldn't stay here again unless the wi-fi improved.

Stayed for 3 nights, long weekend in February. The hotel is new and it shows. Rooms are not to big but clean and cosy. Breakfast ( included for all guests ) is just what you need to open the day, rich and tasty, Metro station is 5 minutes walk. Big supermarket and a very trendy street with lots of restaurants and bars are just nearby.

We spent 6 good days at this hotel with our daughter and two grandchildren.
The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, the rooms were standard Holiday Express but in good condition and very clean.
Breakfast was buffet style but a good variety.
The hotel is a little out of Barcelona center, but close to the beach (ten minutes walk) and the Metro (five minutes) and there are numerous restaurants, of all sorts, in the vicinity.

Room Tip: The area seemed very quiet at night and in the early morning so no real need to choose a side.

Booked this to do a trip to camp nou for my son's birthday so had to keep it in a reasonable budget price.
Suggest people use the metro nearest to it which is the llacuna.
The staff were very helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble.
About 5km to central so within easy reach.but walking past the hotel we found a fab collection of restaurants and bars..a gorgeous paella in passage 9 and the kids loved el pipe for its cheese tapas. . And the football..
hotel was clean and tidy and accommodated a family of 4..

Spent 3 nights in Barcelona and used this as a hub and it was perfect. Hotel staff where friendly and very helpful. Metro station just around the corner that can take you into central Barcelona. The beach was about a 20 minute walk away but a very pleasant walk past lots of restaurants and shops.

The rooms where clean comfy and up to date not massive but you can't expect that from a express.

Breakfast was great had a massive choice and set you up for the day very well.

Very good little Holiday Inn

We stayed in Barcelona for 4 nights before we boarded our cruiseship. They had a yummy brunch every morning. The rooms need a makeover but it was clean & comfortable. Also, we found the staff could speak enough english to help us with what we needed. Walking distance to the beach & many nice restaurants & attractions. We also purchased passes on the Red line buses & enjoyed getting off & on in many places.
