Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tapirro Really good hotel in Barcelona
Holiday Inn Express was the cheapest "normal" hotel in Barcelona. Price for the room for 3 persons with breakfast, in Barcelona, is more than suitable. When I was reading other opinions, I had a little bit doubts. You have to remember that this is Holiday Inn Express, not a Inter Continental or other premium hotel from IHG group. So do not expect super central location, swimming pool and luxurious rooms - you are not paying for that! Barcelona 22 is new looking hotel, with good size of the rooms. They are clean and quite modern. Breakfast was typical continental one, but with a lot of diverse foods. Windows however were not 100% soundproof. What you can improve? Looking very carefully, you can see here and there a little bit of limescale. And please install toilet brush!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Simcn Great Service, restaurants nearby and fantastic location for jogging
The staff here offers great service. On arrival , the staff at reception briefed me on the surrounding restaurants and nearby public transport.
Rambla del Poblenou is just around next block and is a great place for all varieties of dining - chinese food, spanish food, pubs etc
My early mornings (due to jet lag) are spent running to Rambla del Poblenou , along seaviews of Port Olympic to Port del Mar.
Free breakfast lacks variety however I enjoyed the quietness and solitude of starting breakfast earlier than scheduled time.
Small room, very basic amenities, facilities and atmosphere. Would be unfair to comment as this hotel cannot be compared to much costlier 5-star hotels.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Joyce20 Great service from Reception and house keeping
We really enjoyed our stay in this hotel, it's close to Llacuna metro where it can take you to the city or even to the famous las ramblas within 10-15 mins,, the hotel is in a vicinity of restaurants and bars which is just around the corner, just please be very careful with pick pocketers,we met few locals and warn us to be very careful with our bag,wallet and specially our mobile phones, Barcelona is well know for this so please be alert,.this hotel is highly recommended and we will come back again, the service is excellent and the room is clean and tidy, breakfast is excellent and it's really value for money

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JSSandCJC A good spot!
I stayed here for a few nights in January 2014. The hotel is well located, with some very good restaurants just around the corner, and most attractions within a 5-8 Euro taxi fare. The breakfast was plentiful and very popular after 9am. Hotel staff was very helpful.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by whoamI? connecting doors and noisy neighbours
At first we enjoyed our stay in our room 663 with connecting door to another -vacant- room.
Unfortunately for us, on our 4th+5th day, when we started to get tired form our lenghty strolls through Barcelona, this other room had guests. These fresh guests got up very early (as we, at first) and talked out loud as if they were the only ones in the building. And the connecting door functioned as a loudspeaker!
I slipped a note through the door, asking them to be quite. That helped a bit, but insufficiently.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by NB2014 Pillows make you break out and walls thin as paper
My family travels often, and we usually choose Holiday Inn Express because of the relatively large rooms and free breakfast. However, we were very disappointed in our Holiday Inn Express stay. First of all, although the breakfast was free, it consisted of bread, cheese, and warm milk for cereal. Every other Holiday Inn Express has at least eggs as a protein for breakfast. Second, the pillows made my face breakout very badly, and a week later, I had to set up a dermatologist appointment to take care of the problem. Third, the rooms are very small and the walls are extremely thin, so you can hear the annoying family with four kids next door and all the other wonderful activities going on with your neighbors. Lastly, the hotel is not located in a pretty area, and is priced a bit too much for the graffiti-striken area that surrounds it. Would not recommend. Extremely unhappy with this location.

The staff was really helpful. Jordi, Marianna, Judith and Mireia service was astounding. Breakfast was great and wi-fi was also good.
Hotel is close to a rambla (wide spanish street with plenty of restaurants, ice cream places, supermarket, etc.)
TV service could be a little bit better.
My only complaint will that the mattress as hard as concrete which made resting a challenge.
