Clean, New, Great staff. Just remember it's a Express, not the Intercontinental
We had an 11 day stay in August, while we attended a sporting event. Sant Cugat was chosen because it was closer to our venue in Terrassa than the other IHG properties.
The property is very nice,
new and clean. The staff were efficient, courteous with adequate English.
The rooms are neat and clean, so no complaints, with great air conditioning (it was over 40C for our whole visit!). The room has no fridge nor a safe.
If you have a car, then this is easy to get to from the motorways. about 30 minutes from the airport and from downtown Barcelona.
It is 5 minutes walk from Sant Joan station but a 25 minute walk to Sant Cugat village itself.
The free breakfast is simple but generous: good choices of cereal, bread and pastries and some fruit each day. Little or no hot options but that is fine with us.
Dinner options are very limited: there is a small taverna next door which is open until 9pm on weekdays but not on the weekends.
The one fault was the wireless internet. Although it seemed to be available, we could never get any decent speed for even simple web browsing. I ended up using my Mobile Data from my cellphone. [Less]
