I liked that your staff helped us with all my problems:keep our lugage before we check in and after check out,they infomed us about transport ,visiting town;our room was cleaned every day.Iliked too,that the metro and the train and turistic bus were so accesibile from te hotel.Despite other guest air condiotining was good. Nothing specially.
I chose this hotel mainly for its location and convenience for station. My room was comfortable and clean, although the shower taps need some attention. The waiter in the cafeteria was very friendly although he was very overworked which meant we had to wait a long time for service. Although not really the fault of the hotel (more of my fellow guests) the smell of tobacco on 4th floor, particularly on the landing and passage was very unpleasant. It was supposed to be a non-smoking floor. I was very disappointed with the food available on Sunday night in the bar/cafeteria as the restaurant was closed. Poor choice and one of the toughest steaks I have encountered in ages!
Location over the main train station. The theme is stupid, childish, already dated and slightly confusing rather than the attempted "cute". What dope thought that this was a good idea and PAID for the execution? This is the perfect location for a classy and efficient business hotel and instead they put up an amusement park that isn't amusing in the slightest.
Access to trains
we stay at hotel because we thing it handed for trains and buse and a lovely view around.my husband been three times now and i been two time think we be going back very soon and very nice hotel the only thing is tray of tea or coffee in room when people arrived
Convenient destination to reach most of important places I was charged for breakfast as for to persons instead one. Good luck I saw the mistake while checking out. One day bathroom was not cleaned in a proper way.
The convience of the hotel for transportation that I needed to various locations in the area around Barcelona. The resturant was a bit over priced and the selection of items on the menu was not very apealing.
Everything was awesome, the location was superb, the metro is under the hotel and there is Taxi station right when you exit the hotel, the tour bus station is one block away and there are alot of restaurants in the metro station like MacDonalds I liked everything
Proximity to railway station.
Unique Space Theme keeps kids and adults entertained. Rooms were well laid out and comfortable. Hotel was quiet. Breakfast was excellent, cost 15 Euros, but so good that we ate there twice during our 3 day stay. Staff was VERY helpful in getting us where we needed to go on our short post-cruise stay in Spain. Every noise in the room was heard by everyone, including the rest room and shower. An exhaust fan of some sort would have helped with this and would have ensured the shower was not also a sauna. Also, there was not much privacy in the shower area, so everyone had to turn around when each of us got out of the shower to dress. A privacy curtain would have helped with this.
I liked the view in the hotel. My room was very spacious and I had an amazing balcony. Certainly the management need to look a little closer at the service levels their staff provide. The main downside for the weekend for me is any request was met with long delays.
Inner design is rather nice, rooms are modern and we specially liked open bath space. Although is near the city center, because it's on the little hill it's not so easy to walk in and out. We mostly used taxi in the end.
The staff were very helpful. The room was well designed and equipped with a balcony and a good view. Food and facilities were good. The service was very attentive but sometimes the outcomes were a little 'quirky'...however we loved it. We liked the hotel and the location is great from one point of view. However people need to know you are on a hill overlooking Barcelona which is great and the walk down is easy. But coming back usually means a taxi.
Great location fantastic hotel delux room perfect
Small boutique hotel - elegant, quiet and very comfortable. Very helpful English speaking front office staff. Rooms were spacious and high quality with excellent view.
The hotel is located on the hill side at Monjuic, overlooking the city. Two minutes walk at the back of the hotel you can board a cablecar to the beach front, near the world trade centre.The begining of La Rambla at Colombus statue is 15-20 minutes walk from the hotel.The Hotel itself was clean and confortable, the rooms where spacious and the bath tub is big enough for two people, the walk in shower is a real bonus. We didn't make use of the restaurant or bar. Nothing to do with the hotel, but the only negative thing is that because the hotel is not in the city centre we used taxis to go to and from the hotel at night and we didn't get the feeling that the taxi drivers where the most honest people in the ctiy. Then again this could be subjective. A taxi ride from plaza catalunia will cost $9-15, La rambla $8 during the day and $11 (Nov. 2010)
Rooms were beautiful! Staff kept the best service throughout stay AirConditioner doesn't go much lower that 22. Also, hair dryers are not standard nor is a coffeemaker in room. Piano lobby can get loud as noice can be heard from rooms at least 5 floors up.
the hotel itself and the staff and its proximity to the city, its quietness and views. No door on the bathroom of room 605. I was told this was a design feature, if so, it does not work at all.
Staff very friendly and professional. Premises clean and comfortable No tea and coffee facilities in room.
Location, comfort, staff
All No thing
Modern style staff were not that friendly or helpful
Very nice comfortable hotel. Close to subway station (5 minute walk) No coffee maker or iron in the room.
Spacious and clean. Good Location.
Politeness of the staff, breakfast, location of the hotel, room size, regular size iron in the room Welness area was renovated, no pool/relax however the weather was quite good. There was too cold in the lobby after the hot weather outside.
breakfast null heating, uncomfortable bed, uncomfortable pillow
Large room (good for children), seperate bath and shower, use of swimming pool and good location. Note that the pool is only open limited hours at the weekend.
location and comfortable swimmingpool
nothing a very bad and extremely dirty place to stay
Room had great space. Bathrooms were excellent and well equipped.Great size bed.
Large room, comfortable bed, varied and good quality breakfast, good and calm location.
Thought the standard was very high.
Proximity to the city sights Small and often unattended bar.Street side room was noisy and had to move to the rear of hotel.
Our stay was very pleasant and the staff were all very helpful and kind. Super clean and nice rooms. I would recommend this hotel to all my friends.
Good sized rooms. Clean & tidy. Great location.
Very convenient location, friendly and helpful staff, clean comfortable rooms. Would have been nice if the pool was heated in the autumn
Very close to the Metro The bed had a rubberised undersheet, very hot and sweaty! Room was very noisy.
big room & toilet with tube and shower , friendly staff talking english, location is perfect, metro is exactly near the hotel's door and by walk to ramblas it take 10 min breakfast was limited and the plates was sometimes dirty & wet
Large room, excellent facilities
The location was great for seeing the sights and shopping in Barcelona. The room was updated, clean and comfortable. The staff was helpful and friendly.
the proximity to the underground station, the quietness and cleanliness of the room.
Generally Ok, nothing in particular The price did not include breakfast, surpricing!
fantastic location - good service
We had a wonderful suite overlooking the entire beautiful Catalonia!! It was the best experience ever! Can't wait to visit again. Thank you for your hospitality!! Best regards.
Great location. Nice rooftop pool with great views AC didn't work in my room
Great location; Great views on the front rooms; Clean aspect
Location, friendly staff, very quiet room, good breakfast, one child under 12 can stay free of charge. Small room, air conditioning did not work at all , non-smoking room was actually a smoking one(room stinks) even if the sign was hanged on the door room, towels and pillow cases had stains.
location and staff
the location they are not aware about the conditions required in the request
Perfect location & perfect view :) No.
Location!!! Subway - entrance at the entrance of the hotel, bus from/to airport - 50 m, Montjuic - 500 m. The room was clean, breakfast - ok. The hotel seems a bit oldish, but it was perfect for our 2 night stay.
Never stayed in that hotel. It was overbooked. And we got transferred to different hotel.
The room facilties They dont have room service!!!
Exellent location, Small rooms and view from balcony
I really liked the staff; the were very accommodating. The room was very clean. Excellent location. The food, at least breakfast was not very good. Bacon was not drained. The fruit was not very fresh......
it was very close to one of the main the train stations and the view of the montjuic palace. Some of the furniture was broken. There wasnt any facilities in the room for a hot drink.
Fast organisation on the reception, full information, kind porsonal In my room the floor was without covering.
Expo Hotel Barcelona is a 4star totally "purse friendly" hotel very close to the Barcelona Sants central railway station. The hotel is easly joinable on feet (less than 5 min walk) and is startegically placed between two subway stations (Barcelona Sants and Tarragona). It is very clean and confortable and rooms are very well equipped. You will receive your own bathrobe and slippers. The building itself may not be very stylish but all considered it is a very good choice for a short stay in Barcelona.
noice from outside hotel
The rooms were kept veryclean, the staff were very helpfull and its a great loction.
Comfortable clean room close to Metro into the city. The noise from a building site beside the hotel that went 24/7.
Localization and the room The price of the breakfast
very near from barcelona sants. no.its very comfort
Excellent location, few metro stations from the very heart of the city.
I was positively impressed by the staff at this hotel and how welcoming and warm they are. The hotel is perfect for the price we paid and it has a pretty good location. Although not central, it is very close to Sants Estacio which connects you to all the lines and to the center in a matter of 15 minutes. The neighbourhood is safe and the facilities such as the lounge, the computer area and the lobby are very nice. The restaurant and their offerings are not great. There were some hidden phone fees - we were almost sure that local calls would be free as they are everywhere in the world but we were charged for them although there is no mention of charges for these calls anywhere in the room.
pleasent and comfortable clean/ respectable/ I needed computer with power point to work on a presentation and it was not avelable
I like big bathroom and that metro station and supermarket are very close I did not like old and dirty carpet in our room. This is not about cleaning-staff cleaning is very good, this is about years during which is this carpet using. I would prefer wood or keramic floor, it is more hygienic.
nice bathroom small room, poor light, staff overwhelmed and not willing to help (a friend of mine called the hotel to talk to me without knowing my room number, he was asked to call back later, because the man at the reception had too much work to do!), definitely a bad value for a 4 stars hotel!
Efficient booking in system. Lighting very subdued
Ease of access to city transport facilities and reasonably quiet No tea or coffee making facilities in the rooms
Very good service and friendly staff, good car parking facility. Very clean hotel, good breakfast selection also, could do with a bit better lighting in the rooms and the beds were a little hard
very close to the Barcelo Sants train station too small room
Information gievn by staff about barcelona Had to wait for an hour to check in. Bad a ccess to car pak. Had to wait a long time again to check out because of difficulties with their system, they could not provide me a bill, which meant we could not paid by our preffered method.
Staff was very friendly. The room was nice and clean. Good value for money. Wifi was down. The room was a bit noisy, but of course it's Barcelona. The city that never goes to sleep.
Throughly enjoyable - excellent thankyou.
the hospitality from the staff breakfast
Location of the Paral-lel is good easy to walk to the Ramblas and the Marina. Lots of local eateries and nearby supermarket. Would be nice to have tea/coffee making facilities in the room.
My wife like very much the tv channels channel + and channel action. I like to sit in the bath. we like the internet opportunity. There is some noise from other guests speaking in the night and also noise from shower and toiletflush in walls.
Good value for money, good location, comfortable room View from our window
The room was very modern we had a terrace with outside seating not great views but it was hot gave you a great place to enjoy the out doors good location if you are taking a cruise it's about a 15 miintue drive they will call a cab for you they arrive very quickly.but beware the price ride will coat about 20euro you can walk it it will take 30mins but it not an easy wall. If you are English speaking everyone was great and also good suggestion on place near by to eat.rooms were quite you could here the people next to you. The area is a little noisy at night but I think every where is loud in Barcelona
the location and the staff.
Found this hotel really suited our needs. It was clean, tidy, and comfortable. Not huge rooms, but airconditioned and was what we expected. The staff were friendly and helpful. 10min walk to la Rambla, 1min walk to bus stop and never far from bars and restaurants. Room we were in was very quiet... had the hotel breakfast a few times which was excellent! We both enjoyed our stay!
Clean rooms; good location; friendly and helpful staff N/A
Good location for the metro and therefore easy access into the city centre within 5 minutes The hotel staff were very helpful
Convenirnt for Port & Cruise Ships and City
Close to tourist attractions , La Rambla is about a 15min walk away There were bed bugs in my room and i have been severly bitten. Other than that, the hotel was ok. i hope that this issue will be resolved as it would be shame to see this hotel go down as its in a good location
Clean, beds were comfortable, friendly staff, close to port (10 minute walk)
Very functional, very central, very clean and tidy. Staff were very polite, helpful and pleasant. No
I liked it's proximity to where I was working Lack of English TV chanels
The room looked like the room on the website when I booked it. I'm a light sleeper so the fact that it was quite and there was very little internal noise was great. When we were there there was a general strike and the hotel put up notices to advise guests of this unlike some other hotels that I'm aware of. The hairdryer was in the bathroom and was one of those ones that is just a hose. Guests should definately bring their own hair dryer!!
Great location to las rambals street and the beach, beds were comfortable and the bathroom amenities were great. The pre-requested iron and board were not in the room. Also out electricity would go out after using the iron, it delayed our visit to the city
Very friendly, helpful staff, good location, and quiet.
Short walk to Las Ramblas. Right next to Metro. Paying for parking
The breakfast buffet was fantastic! The facilities were great, the staff was friendly and super helpful, the cleaning staff was also very nice. The room was also great! Overall experience was wonderful!
the location of the hotel 1) the AC wasnt working in the room they had to change us to another room after 2 days 2) one of the members of our group cancelled at the last minute. We requested they reduce our room from a triple to a twin, they agreed. However at checkout they said booking.com would still charge them commission for a triple and hence made us pay alomost the whole amount for a triple (despite us staying in a twin room for the duration). They gave us a small discount for each night. Not acceptable.
friendly staffs nothing
it was excellent my wife and i plus other members of my familt will be staying again next year
The staff of the reception, cleaning of the room The service of the restaurant.
Rooms were very comfortable and good clean bathrooms but a mini bar would have been a good addition and there were no Kleenex for the ladies. Bar area was too austere, need to be made more comfortable.
The hotel was very clean, and the staff were very helpful.
What an excellent hotel! The rooms do look like the pictures, a great place to relax. Will definately go there again. The hotel is 100m from the Plaza Espagna subway-entrance, there is a small supermarket around the block. Nothing really, just minor wishes like a bathtub or coffe/tea-facilities in the room. But then again, there is complimentary water in the little fridge in the room.
Room was very good ... expecialy bathroom metro is very closed
Clean place and convinient
The hotel was newly re-furbished and wery clean Only room service available
Perfect location, Cleanliness Nothing
Perfect location, easy access to every attractions, near metro, railway station and airport bus station. Quiet, got Wi-fi, big room. We booked a double room and was given a twin, but changed to double room the next day. Some reception staff's English is not very good, forgot to move our luggage into the new room. A bit slow for check in.
Don't pre-pay. They can never figure it out. They always try to charge you again when you are checking out. The first time when I didn't know they have this issue and my company pre-paid they even managed to convince me to pay again on check-out. I never got my money back either.
Location - close to cruise port, Port Vell, La Rambla. Super helpful staff. Generally comfortable. Shower panel too short allowing water to spill into bathroom. Need maintenance because of spills. Not enough storage for luggage.
The Hotel Grums was excellent value, the rooms are modern and a good size. Staff were helpful and pleasant. The hotel has a nice atmosphere.
The location to Sants station where we arrived after flying to Barcelona. Good location for the Metro too. Bit of a walk to The Ramblas and city centre if not using public transport. Would have liked tea and coffee facilities in the room.
Excellent location, Extremely nice hotel staff, Excellent rooms with superior views of the city and luxury spa aswell. Probably one of the best hotels we've stayed in!!!!!! There was nothing we didnt like. Excellent hotel and will be recommending it to friends and familly
The hotel had organized two adjacent and very nice rooms for us with a lovely view of Barcelona. The hotel is located within walking distance of the university and Camp Nou and only a short train ride from the old town. would have been nice with a street side coffe shop for the afternoon as roof top lounge had ltd service.
Managed to get a room on the 16th floor, so the views were magnificent, but you have to make sure you are on the right side of the hotel - not facing the train station. Breakfast was excellent, catering for all tastes and nationalities, while the spa facilities were very enjoyable.
The staff always talked to us with smile, kindly and helpful. We were honeymoon couple and it was so lovely they arranged a bottle of sparkling wine as surprise. We had breakfast at the restaurant on the top floor, it was so nice view with sun shine. Everything was nice. We will stay there next time. We sent e-mail to ask some questions before arriving but their replying was very late.
front desk staff and housekeeping staff
large room cleanliness of bathroom, mold in shower
An all around great hotel . As soon as you get there, will see that it is a nice building from the outside... probably the tallest hotel in that area which allows you to have good views when you go to the top floor. I was greeted by the friendly and professional staff, that checked us in quickly. The hotel is located conveniently by the metro which was great to get anywhere in Barcelona. The staff was helpful and answered any questions we had. They assisted us on how to take the metro with the most simple route possible. The wi fi was solid too, great connection and quick. I would definitely return next time!
The bathroom was amazing and we had an executive room for the same price as a standard double We had two single beds and we had to keep putting them together as every morning the cleaner would separate them, also we didn't have an iron and the drinks in the fridge weren't chilled.
Hotel staffs are very helpfull and friendly
Right in front of the Barcelona Sants station. Spacious room. Thin wall. A little far from the city center. Since it's in the commercial area, it's rather quiet during weekend. If you pay the money because of the view of Barcelona's night life, you may be disappointed.
The staff including the daily cleaning services. The quietness in the room especially at night even though the hotel is in a busy place. The design of the bathroom. The way the lights work in the room which can be adjusted if one person is sleeping and the other is not. Only 15 minutes of computer time at the business center Laundry services are ridiculously expensive. Self - operated washing machines and dryers will enhance your reputation even more.
Firstly I liked the staff who were most pleasant and helpful. We had a triple room which was really 2 rooms adjoining and was so spacious and comfortable. The location was excellent for shopping and sight-seeing and also convenient to the airport (15 minutes by taxi). It was the best value hotel I have ever stayed in and will certainly stay there again. I have already recommended it to friends who are planning a trip to Barcelona. Thank you for a most enjoyable stay. Absolutely nothing!
Excellent location, very helpful staff, Big comfortable rooms, big comfortable beds. Good breakfast. Only problem was lack heating. It was october so they had not switched from AC to heating mode yet. Extra blankets supplied.
The staff were friendly and accommodating.
wide room, free wireless, good breakfast. 1st floor room was quiet even though it watched towards Gran Via. phone in the room had broken dial buttons
It was a very pleasant experience. Only few minutes walk to the nearest metro station and other tourist attractions. It is also near to the bus stop going to the airport thus very convenient.
We were 3 people in an appartment with 2 rooms. There was plenty of space. Everything was excellent. Location is good, 3 min walk to a big metro and bus node (Placa Espanya) There were only 6 tables available for breakfast and 1 day out of 9 we had to queue to be able to eat in the morning.
Staff was very helpful.Very nice room.
Location and room space. No
convenient location to go to the airport and to go for sightseeing. The room is clean.
The location is perfect to explore every single part of the city and the metro is in front tof the hotel, even though there is no need to reach the Ramblas area and the old part of the city. They tried to gave us a room with a very small bed, not really a double room. Furthermore the room was dirty and not cleaned yet. Only after complaining they changed us the room as a favour. The breakfast is enough, but very poor quality.
The location was excellent as well as the cost per night. It has a secure parking garage. The facilities were basic, there was traffic noise throughout night as hotel is situated on a busy street
great location,reception staff very helpfull rooms clean but very run down . in need of painting and minor repairs . traffic can be heard very loud even on 7th floor.
Fantastic value for money and a great spot Nothing
Good location. Close to city Water came down from the ceiling in bathroom, maybe failure with the a/c
Value for money & good location No in-room tea/coffee. We, initially, had no TV remote in our room and the elderly male receptionist wanted to charge us 2euros a day for its use. I complained and later asked another receptionist and he supplied the remote with no request for charge. This was unfortunate as all the receptionists were very helpful.
clean, convient noise, cost
Breakfasts, cleanliness little oldfashioned and as I said noissy
Good position Breakfast - margarine and rubbish fruit juice, bathroom, beds
good location for central barcelona
Simply the convenient location, and the general cleanliness of the hotel and the room. The room was very small (though the bathroom was fine) and there were minimal conveniences in the hotel. Why is it so hard to get ice or cold drinks in such a warm place? The management was gruff but efficient enough.
yes,i do like very much,very friendly,only lift is very,very slowly
close to the city centre. clean enough, prompt.
Located right behind apollo theatre. It's a quiet location yet very near the Olympic park & the beach. 2 minute walk from metro station Parallel
Friendly, helpful staff. Perfect location for almost anything. Hotel is next to a restaurant/bar that can get really noisy on weekends. Walls between rooms are thin. Elevator very slow. Though it didn`t bother me, some might be put off by the spartan-like rooms.
Good rooms. Helpful staff
It's close to the city center, and the staff was very helpful. You can hear everything that happens on the floor, very noisy.
Really wonderful location For me it was too cold in the room (october), though the heater was on it could not help...
Room had terrible smell of smoking and the staff change it without any hassle... it's supposed to be a non smoking hotell... heating was so good...
Close to the center, cheap Not cosy at all. There are many rooms without normal windows (internal). Single room is very small. The breakfast is not included and is very poor.
The location is excellent, value for money, clean room, however very noisy, you could hear people walking on the hallway. I know I coundn't ask much for a 2 star hotel, however I didn't feel welcomed. I find the staff quite rude, i'm not sure but maybe because its their culture. I stayed in other 2 star elsewhere, but service was great. I might recommend this hotel however I will let them aware about the service.
Rooms are small, but very clean. Free wifi is available and worked properly. Hot water was never a problem. A lot of noise in (and around) the hotel. Of course the hotel is not to blame for its guests...
I was amazed by how clean, and nice the hotel was, the location is perfect, not in the middle of noise, but still close to everything, the staff is amaaaaaazing, n super friendly, I checked in at 2am, n they were waiting for me, clean rooms, and bathrooms, I will def stay there next time.
Everything was just perfect Nothing...except when we entered the room, it was a bit dusty but it was nothing at all!
Hotel is fine... connected to metro about 10 minutes walking distance..
Super friendly personnel and excellent service, great location near metro. Very clean and modern rooms. Highly recommended!
Nice people working for you, always ready to explain to us the way to reach our destination, reserve taxi for us for the port and not too far from the location we want to visit.The stair No indication on the stairs to reach the next step. A bit difficult for older people. We must pay attention not to fall.
Close to the Sants railway station and not a big pretentious hotel but small and intimate. Unfortunately some occupants in the room above were very noise most of the night and there are no staff to complain to.
good location,very close to the metro;very helpful staff,friendly atmoshere;modern design;excellent breakfast
went in barcelona for two days and the room was... great. a/c perfect, cleaning perfect, no sounds when you sleep, breakfast was incredible, terrace great for smoking a cigarette really quiet in this zone of barcelona and staff was so kind. if i will go again to barcelona, i will stay in live & dream. greetings from italy. a&a
The hotel was very clean, modern and close to the metro station.Excellent: next time I'll be in Barcelona I'll surely go there again to enjoy my journey!! There was a flat right in front of our window,but there was no problem because the tents covered it all.
Clean, friendly staff, quite rooms, quite location. Breakfast not commencing till 8am. Would have preferred it to start 30 mins earlier.
Staff lady is cute.
I am completely livid at the desk staff with this hotel.I gave clear instructions for a wake up call at 6am,luckily I woke at 6:30or we would have missed our trainThe morning clerk did nhot offer any apology said it had been for 7am iliked best leaving the place
i liked about Abba Sants, is that he is near everything, train station, metro station, and several pubs and restaurents
Chosen for its location which was excellent. Air conditioning feeble and pretty ineffectual. Nasty smell in bathroom and tap on washbasin so loose as to be almost unusable. Not expected quality for a four-star hotel. Fortunately ours was a single night stopover.
close to Sants railway station, close to Metro station, good bed, nice room (although there was a column in the middle of the room) despite double glass windows, the road can be noisy
Excellent help of the staff and very clean rooms.
The hotel was very close to amenities such as metro stop and also the cities main train station. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel had all modern facilities and was very clean and tidy. The restaurant menu was not that extensive, otherwise everything was perfect
Really great location - entrance to Metro right outside hotel, and main train station only 5-10 mins walk. Area felt safe. Very quiet.
clean room, nearby metro station, late check-out time no complaints
good well-comes by the receiption (with smile), which makes really big differance for customers
