“Pretty Satisfactory”
Reviewed July 14, 2010

No complaints, a 10minute walk from the station but the lovely breakfast makes upfor it
Friendly helpful staff, dont speak much english but get the message across!. The rooms provide exactly what you need if your just using your hotel as a base for travelling into Barcelona. A lovely quiet beach is not very far away..
Surrounding area a bit shabby but overall the hotel is good

Both my wife and myself chose the Hotel as it was great value for money.
The staff were very helpful and were available anytime of the day or night.
The room was large, clean and they served a good continental breakfast.
The hotel is located on the edge of an industrial complex of Molins de Rei.
The best thing about the Hotel was that it was really good value for money and possibly the worst thing would be that it is approximately 10 miles from the centre of Barcelona, the train station is only a 5 minute walk and to get to the centre of Barcelona will take 25 minutes by train, but the trains are cheap, reliable, clean and are manned by multilingual staff.

We got this hotel at an unbelievably good rate during the Easter season in Barcelona. The price was right, but the location was not. The hotel is located in an industrial area of suburban Barcelona (about 30 minutes by train.) Not exactly convenient. The hotel itself was fine. Nice size rooms, decent continental breakfast, very friendly and multilingual staff. But the half-mile walk from the train station to the hotel (though a sometimes dodgy and deserted park) at night was enough of a turn off. I would recommend this hotel if you are traveling in a group or only sightseeing during the day. If there are only a couple of you, however, it would be better to stay closer, especially if you want to partake in Barcelona's night life!

(As a side note, Holiday Inn Express in the US typically have free internet. Overseas it is different. The internet is 9 Euro for 24hours here. Not terrible, but not included, either.)

Lovely, clean hotel.

Friendly helpful staff, nothing is too much trouble, even when your two year old is ill all over their bedding in the middle of the night!!!!.

The rooms provide exactly what you need if your just using your hotel as a base for travelling into Barcelona. It's a 10 minute walk to the station, and a 25 minute ride by train into Placa Catalunya, so if you don't mind the trip it's well worth saving the money not to stay in the city centre.

The free breakfast provided (continental style) is a good start to what is bound to be a busy day in Barcalona.

We arrived at this hotel to orignaly stay 2 days following our cruise. The hotel is supposed to be reasonable, but I dont know by what standards.
The taxi driver refused to pull into the driveway (behind the barbed wire toped gates), and droped our bag on the curb, and sped off.
The hotel apperas to be on the out rim of the city, in some sort of an industrial area, not at all what I got from reading the Holiday in web site.
Entering the Lobby, seemed to be clean, but had an odd smell to the place.
The staf was very prompt and professional much to their credit, but once we had our room, and went up to it, the smell of urine was all we got, not bad to the point of being sick, just offensive.
It was 4 in the afternoon, and rthe staff was still cleaning rooms, with various equipment still strewn about the halls.
In the room the only light that would work was the heat lamp in the bathroom, you had to use your room key card to activate the lights, TV and AC, but not the heat lamp, and it would not turn off - I had to unscrew the bulb. The rooms where small by any standard, and smelled stale, with poor windows. THe restraunt was not operational until the following tuesday, but was going to serve a continal breakfast in the morning. We thought we would tough it out since finding a suitable replacement was not likely on a sunday afternoon. THen we fond out that the public transportation (train station) was a 10 minute walk through a neighboorhood the clerk at the desk said was safe, but ening from the south bronx, I wouldnt ask my wife to walk through. That still left a Half hour train ride to the areas of the city we wanted to visit.
We stayed only as long as it took for me to find the number of the hotel we hasd stayed in before the cruise, and obtain a room there, then get a cab out.
I usualy am a very good and loyal customer of Holiday Inn and their express hotels but this was the worst hotel have ever stayed in save the one time I stayed in an "Motel 8".
Never again, and I will be writting a formal letter of complaint to the Holiday Inn Corporation; totaly abysmal!
