“Good location, nice hotel”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

I stayed at this hotel the night before my flight home from Barcelona. It was very modern with nice rooms and facilities. It's a short walk to a mall with many food options.

Taxi's are expensive in Europe, although advertised at 8km from the airport the taxi was still 40 euro. This is common in Europe where they have been paying a lot for fuel for a long time.

Hotel is located in the outskirts of a industrial area. Thirty min walk to the beach and 15 min to the centre - no restaurants or bars in the vicinity - only ones in the nearby shopping centre. Free wi-fi that never worked more than five minutes - really irritating. I left my towel every day in the hook hoping this universal sign would be understood that I don't want a new towel. Every day my towel was changed, if they do this in all the rooms I dare not think the water wasted. If you need one night near the airport then this is ok, other than that - I'd choose another place.

Stayed at the hotel for a night. Hard to find location because it is in the outskirts of Barcelona. We drove in Spain, it's ok for long drives but in the cities like Madrid & Barcelona ... it was so hard (especially at night time) coz the street names are on the side of buildings. We had to drop off our car that night since we have an early flight the next morning- there's no complimentary shuttles but they call a cab for you when needed. Room is a good size.

We have just returned from a week staying at the BCN Hotel. The rooms are a good size, the beds were very comfortable and the shower was excellent. The staff on the front desk were always helpful and friendly. Breakfast had a good selection of foods to choose from, but the coffee from the machines was awful. For us it was a good location as it is easy access to the motorway and just 10 mnutes away from the Sanchez Casals Tennis Academy. Being close to the Anecblau shopping centre was handy and its a short walk into the town centre with its many cafes. I would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Our room was on the 5th floor and we had a lovely mountain view, and there was no traffic noise.

Great location, close to airport and Sitges. All rooms appear to be extremely large rooms (suites) however decor starting to date and rooms can be dark with all the cherry wood finishes. The room was quiet and we all slept well. There was some mould around the shower base otherwise rooms clean. Good outside pool but very few sunbeds. As others have said, breakfast is buffet affair but choice is good. Food choice and availabilty during the day and evening poor. Would reccomend for a short stay.

This was our second visit to BCN Events as the cost in August represents such good value. The rooms are large- we had a triple room as we have a 7yr old son- clean and wonderfully quiet.

The location of the hotel is great, we had family join us and it was just fifteen minutes to the airport to pick them up/drop them off but the hotel is also only minutes away from lovely sandy beaches and the shopping centre/ town of Castelldefells where there are loads of places to eat and shop.

The centre of Barcelona took us less than half an hour- you can head for the Port and park underground really easily at the end of La Rambla- perfect for shops and sighseeing in the city.

We had brekkie in the hotel for 8 euros extra (restaurant food at any other time is not great) and whilst it is not the biggest choice I have ever seen there is plenty to choose from. The only small complaint I would have is having coffee from the machine which is not very nice, last year they would make you a fresh one if you wanted but this year it was 1.70 euro extra.

The Italian restaurant in the shopping centre is minutes walk and food was great- as it was last year, and this year we also enjoyed great food in the town at the Chinese, the Asian Kitchen and an amazing Turkish on one of the main streets - we did not tend to use the car in the evenings and these were all within easy walking distance of the hotel. I would recommend having a car though as it makes getting into Barcelona so easy, as well as getting down to the beaches, Sitges is also well worth a visit - about half an hour south. The hotel also has plenty of free parking so no issues there.

Pool was nothing spectacular but perfectly fine- I have seen a lot worse (the following week when we drove up the coast to Tossa De Mar- that's another story!!) and there are not enough sunbeds- but there never are in any hotel generally.

All in all a great value, simple, clean base with comfy beds and good aircon ! Would stay here again, reception staff were very accommodating and happy to print off our boarding passes (Ryan Air- say no more!) free of charge which was good, also free wifi throughout hotel which was useful.

The hotel is great, probably built for the Olympic athletes. Hotel is a modern design everything nice and clean, although some mould in shower not a lot, beds comfortable. Pool well maintained and clean. Did not experience any road noise at all. We had breakfast which was very good plenty to choose from, the usual fare cold meats cheese eggs bacon etc. Take a drive into town square, in the evening ( Sunday ) when we were there locals dancing to live orchestra in square, a sort of communal line dancing night out... priceless. Had a meal here and watched the world go by, lovely evening. I would recommend this hotel.
