Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Wincova Pre cruise overnight stay
Good standard Holiday Inn Express.
Room was quiet, good standard and clean.
Reception staff helpful and friendly.
Position of the hotel great - just minutes from a Las Ramblas type street with a great variety of restaurants and bars for in the evening.
Only one disappointment the breakfast room was absolutely packed and it was not possible to get a seat, the queue for breakfast was right round the dining room. We decided to walk out and went around the corner to one of the bars and paid for a breakfast.
Suggestion - the breakfast dining room could benefit from a better lay out. Instead of one row of supermarket type line shopping collection for breakfast items, place different breakfast items in a variety of areas around the outside of the dining room this would illeviate one massive queue and create a better experience for all.
All in all though with the exception of the breakfast a great stay and I would return.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JustaTraveller Good choice to stay
Great location. Friendly staff. Excellent breakfast.
Close to the Rambla and the beach.
Only two things I didn't like:
- Parking fees for the car (But seems to be typical for Barcelona)
- Crowded and loud breakfast room
HoweverI would be there again and do recommend the place.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Trillium2452 Barcelona Stay - fantastic!
Loved this hotel and the neighbourhood it was in! Short walk to the beach along a lovely rambla with tons of great eating spots, and short walk from Metro stop too. Friendly staff, clean room.
The breakfast was amazing!! Lots of choice to satisfy European and North Americans!! Best breakfast buffet we've every had at a Holiday Inn express. Will use again if we ever get to return to Barcelona!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Miss Bee Great location for a short stay
We returned to this hotel having been happy with the location. This hotel offered what we needed. It is close to the metro, a walk to the beach and has good restaurants on the doorstep. A reasonably priced family hotel, I wouldn't want to spend too long here without a pool, but for short breaks we'll no doubt be back again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Niks1 Good hotel in an excellent location
This hotel was a real find as not only is it 5 mins walk from the metro system with easy access into the city centre and 10 mins from a very nice beach but is also 5 mins walk to an area with about 50 good restaurants serving a wide variety of food. The staff were also fantastic with no request being too much trouble. We will no doubt return.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JohnWH Everything you need
Everything worked, rooms were clean, staff friendly. Adequate breakfast although rather canteen in style. Location is close to nice boulevard filled with restaurants. The actual location of the hotel is not the prettiest but only a block away from the nice stuff. Also close to Metro. so very convenient and seemed to be safe. The soap ran out in my shower and the service people missed that but other than this minor omission the service was excellent.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RaghuT Close to Barcelona attarctions
I am platinum IHG member. We stayed in this hotel for a week, and really liked the location of the hotel, and the proximity to major attractions in Barcelona. The staff and service are good, including free internet to members. All of reception staff were able to speak English, and provide guidance on attractions.
The only improvement I can think of is, Breakfast. There is not much variety, only bread choices are available. I would prefer to have more fruit choices.
Overall we liked our stay and enjoyed the holiday inn.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BADA Great location and comfortable rooms
Excellent location for a family of four -- it was safe to walk to the metro to go to the zoo, gothic quarter, etc. We could even walk to La Sagrada Familia! The room had one queen bed and a sofa bed, which worked for a family of four. We were also just a block from restaurants, shops, etc. so finding dinner was easy with lots of excellent choices. The breakfast at the hotel was quite good and gave a good start to a full day of exploring Barcelona. The cost of the hotel was quite reasonable given the proximity to so many amenities.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Luigi45 Dining room experience
The variety and order of food was good, and resupplied at frequent intervals by staff. However with a large clientele, there was some delay getting a table.
The dining room itself was basic but adequate.
The air-conditioning was turned up too high and made the room quite chilly and uncomfortable.

Mi estancia fue de un dia en el hotel.El trato del personal de recepcion fue excelente, mi felicitación.
La habitacion adecuada. El desayuno muy bueno ..el unico pero fue la falta de mesas para todos y la cola para pasar por el buffet.....
A la noche pedimos una pizza a la habitacion a traves de recepcion.....una idea estupenda sobre todo con niños.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BlindCktgjq Good combination of reasonable price and location.
10 minutes from metro station Llacuna. Coming up from metro stairs follow straight two blocks and then one block left. By metro it takes 10-15 minutes to reach most of the famous places in city center. Hardly recommend to buy 10 trips tickets - it gives you good price per trip and it multiuser ticket so you can buy one for two or three persons.
15-20 minutes walking to beach (approx 4 blocks). Good beach, not so many people (compare to center of Barcelona). Fresh water shower available, but not dress change facilities.
Number of cafés and restaurants around hotel within 1-2 blocks distance. Whole area around is quickly developing area, in 2-3 years it will be good business & leisure driven area.
Taxi cars are quickly available, almost all the time 1-2 vacant cars standing outside hotel. Cost to go to airport 30-40 euro.
10-15 minutes walking to shopping mall Gloria's. Near by Angbar tower and Best Design museum.
For those who don't mind to walk - half an hour walking distance to Sagrada Familia. Follow to Gloria square and follow Diagonal.
WiFi available in rooms, but free of charge only for IHG members. Printer and access points available at the reception.
Independent gym available at first floor.
Staff is very helpful with all questions, react quickly. Once we ask for extra towel, we got four extra at the time that we spent to lift up by elevator.
Long lines at breakfast. Despite large area- collecting of food is disorganized leading to long ques.
No English channels on TV.
I think it is good choice for those who want to have reasonable price for staying, good compromise for distances to attractions and beaches. Hotel is widely used by families with kids - you can see a lot of kids at breakfast time. To avoid long ques I would recommend to wake up for breakfast earlier and be three at least quarter to 8. :-)

it is not in busy tour street, but it is easy to take subway to go everywhere. Compare to the price, it is really worth it. Actually if you like me prefer the quiet location, this is the place to be. The stuff is helpful, and the wifi signal is very good. Breakfast has a lot of varieties. I will definitely come back.

Unser Aufenthalt im Hotel war hervorragend, genau wie erwartet in einem Holiday Inn Hotel. Das Personal war sehr freundlich, das Zimmer wurde täglich gereinigt. Das Frühstück war auch sehr gut, allerdings entstand manchmal einige Wartezeit am Büffet. Das Hotel liegt sehr gut, sowohl für die Besichtigung verschiedener Sehenswürdigkeiten von Barcelona als auch für einen Strandtag. Der schöne Strand liegt ca. 15 Minuten Fußweg weg und die Metro-Haltestelle ca. 5 Minuten vom Hotel weg.

I would recommend. Everything was great except the price. The first night was reasonable, however, the second night doubled in price. When reserving multiple rooms, that was a bit unexpected.
Breakfast, cleanliness, staff, all were highly recommended. Just the price variation was unexpected.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sinbad52 Friendly staff, clean, comfortable room
We stayed here for 6 nights. This was a great location for us between the beach/port area and city centre. Great taxi and public service to and from the hotel. Good food at good restaurants within 400 metres of the hotel. Our only complaint was breakfast. This has to be the worst designed breakfast area HIE has. It is poorly laid out with not enough table spaces for the number of guests. It was always very busy with little if any table spaces available and we tried different times from 07:00 to 10:00 and on each occasion we had to queue for ages, competing with excellent, uncomplaining and polite staff trying to clear tray trolleys and refill breakfast area. At times it resembled a rugby scrum. We had to use the lounge area twice as there was no room at all in the dining area. The hotel is situated above a very well equipped gym. It would have been good if the hotel had an arrangement with the gym so that guests could use the facilities there. None of this, however, detracted from a great holiday in a great city and it was a really good base for us.
