Having stayed at other hotels in Barcelona before, we decided to try the Crowne Plaza this time. The location didn't look that good on paper first, but we were pleasantly surprised as you can get to
the city and toutist attractions quickly by public transport which is only a 5 minute walk away.
Another very pleasant surprise was the quality of the hotel and in particular the club lounge. I think I can definitly say we got the best breakfast in this club lounge that we had compared to any other IHG hotel/club lounge that we have visited so far.
One night we also tried the restaurant which we quite liked. That night we had live music and enjoyed a five-course truffle menu which the restaurant had as a special at that time and which was excellent.
This hotel is definitly an option when staying in Barcelona. Only if you want to be close to a beach, it might not be your first choice, but for doing a city trip with visiting the tourist attractions, this is a great hotel. [Less]
