Great location, Value for Money, Accessibility to all major transports.

We are very pleased with our stay at Expo Barcelona Hotel. Very close to Main train station of Barcelona Sants and metro stations. Public transports, taxis, hop on-hop off buses are nearby. Lots of restaurants to choose from just around the corner and short trip to the airport. Rooms are big and clean and staff are very helpful.

Expo Barcelona Hotel”

Location, Size of room, Price

The good reviews are thoroughly justifiable. It's less than a 5 minute walk from Barcelona's main Barcelona Sants railway station. So it's a really good location if you need to travel anywhere in Barcelona or if you're planning a trip out of the city. Surprisingly, it's rather quiet in the night. I upgraded my room to a King's so the room was very spacious. This included a balcony overlooking the train station as well as a mini walk in wardrobe in addition to the usual amenities. The decor was modern and minimal but as long as everything is new and functioning well, that's the way I like it. The staff were helpful. The breakfast seemed rather reasonable although I did not take up the offer. Thought it was well worth the price I paid for the 2 nights' stay. I would have thought the hotel deserved a higher score.

I stayed at the Expo Hotel Barcelona for two nights and really enjoyed it. Had a nice clean and spacious room and the staff was very friendly and helpfull. I even had a room with a bath and really enjoyed the swimming pool and lounging area on the roof. Great location for exploring the city, almost on top of Barcelona Sants Station and therefore near to all public transport you need within the city and to other places.

Staff, Convenience and cleaness

I arrived hotel in the morning around 9am. I was given a room right away even though my booking is supposed to start in the afternoon. A while after I entered my room front desk called to check if all were okay. These were heart-warming. The room is perfectly functional but not luxury. The hotel is visible when stepping out from the SANTS station and it is very convenient if you come from Airport or by train. The subway station is also in the SANTS station and visiting places of interests in Barcelona is convenient by subways as well. The hotel is a deal of value for money. I would stay there again or recommend friends to stay in this hotel.

Very Nice Hotel, Excellent Location”

Location, Price, Friendly Service

i stayed at the expo hotel barcelona for 3 nights with my wife and my 9 months old daughter. the people in the lobby were very friendly and it took no more than 5 minutes to get my room key, but i was a little bit dissapointed when i asked about the internet, they told me that it is only free when booked trough the hotel website, so i had to pay 10euros per day for the internet in my room. the rooms are small, but enough for me and my familly, we got a babby crib next to our bed free of charge. the bathroom was very clean and it had everything we needed. the location of the hotel is excellent, you are just a few steps away from the metro station, and from there you can go to everywhere, plaza catalunya is the one we use the most, from there you can walk to the cathedral, las ramblas, plenty of restaurants and shops. in the last day if you dont make extra charges you can go, leave the key in the lobby in a box without talking to anyone and in 2 minutes you are out taking a taxi or walking to the metro station. in general i would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a cheap but still nice way to stay in a good location in barcelona, but only if you are on buisiness or planning to stay out almost all day, if you plan to stay in the hotel, relax, go to the pool, etc, then you need to look for another option.

Great location and access to anywhere in Barcelona!”

Were amazed by how close it is to the Barcelona Sants train station. Walk out the train station and there it is. 7 minute walk from Plaza d'Espagna and you have access to two metro stations from the hotel nearby. The L3 green line to get into city center and the Saints Estacion metro station to get a glimpse of the Gaudi area in the northeast part of the city. The hotel is old but in a healthy shape and room cleaning is excellent. Breakfast is acceptable but they got really great and kind staff there. Check in and check out took some time due to sudden increase in people and thanks to a few talkative punks who didn't mind the long line at all. A tip. Walk 8 minutes south from the hotel's main street and your will get to a shopping district which is almost free from busy tourists. You can shop there in peace and they do have better stocks than city center. Zara Mango Massimo Dutti etc.

Some hotels have poor facilities but have a nice service, others have good facilities but service leaves much to be desired. Expo Hotel Barcelona, in my opinion, has a perfect balance of both of these components. I was very satisfied with my stay at this hotel. Five days that we spent in Barcelona went hassle free, not least thanks to polite staff. I'll definitely stay here the next time I'm in Barcelona.

Rooms, Location

The standard rooms were separate beds, but because I had stayed there before the staff upgraded us to an "executive" room with a double bed upon arrival. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and even had a double bathroom. The staff made sure we have everything we could want. The bar staff were very pleasant and the bar has a very relaxed vibe, if a tad pricey. The hotel is in an excellent location close to Sants train / metro station giving access to all areas of Barcelona. Great for a city break. The areas around the hotel also seem safe and is only a few minutes walk to the Olympic stadium and park.

The location can't be beat. Easy access from the airport and easy access all of Barcelona's highlights. Great service. Breakfast buffet is well worth the extra 10 Euro, varied options and delicious.

for a weekend visit to barcelona, especially for the marathon weekend, this was the perfect hotel! great location, a few meters from the sants station, with easy access to both the airport and the city's main attractions. the service personnel were courteous and eager to please. the room was upgraded to an executive room for just 7 euro, and was well worth it. nice room size and a balcony. i would stay here again and highly recommend it others. (the pool and terrace was closed for the winter season.)

Our short stay in Barcelona was to visit some of the wonderful sights that this vibrant city has to offer. The hotel being located very near Sants station, was ideal for our visit. Possibly being nearer the centre of the city would have been nice, but with the excellent Metro system nearby and the tourist bus too, it actually worked out really well. The hotel was very pleasant and we had a tiny balcony which gave us just enough outside space, enabling us to relax in the evenings in our room. We didn't actually eat at the hotel, so can't comment on the food. The room was a decent size and well lit, which makes a change in hotels these days. We would definitely stay at the Expo hotel again next visit.

Pros: very clean, marble floors throughout with marble in bathroom. Convenient toiletries for the weekend traveller: hair wash, conditioner, body lotion, razor kit, toothbrush etc. Reasonable quality cotton sheets and large towels, squishy pillows, and slippers (in our upgraded room, which also had a fridge and safe). Cons: No heating just air con (happily they brought us another duvet), and NOISY owing to location next to Barcelona Sants Station, with fairly thin walls. Only paper cups supplied for hot drinks. The hotel reception is bright and safe but the rest of the building at ground level is empty shops and a bit worrying before you find reception. Would come back for a weekend break & bring my own mugs 😉

Also, they had discount for breakfast and it was only 4 euro which was really cheap compare to other hotels. The hotel itself is near the Olympic park and art museum, and a small community which you can get cheap food there. Plus near the train station and just 25 mins walk from camp nou.

Clean comfortable room in a quiet location

I chose this hotel because it was close to the main Sants train station, making it easy to get to from the airport, and the Barcelona metro network. Access to most of the main tourist locations was a short metro ride away or by taking one of the frequent tour buses from Sants station. Situated on a quiet side street, the hotel was very comfortable and my room was clean and airy. I recommend the hotel as providing a good value for money option for the tourist or business traveller.

comfortable stay”

The room was large, clean and comfortable with a balcony overlooking a carpark and the Barcelona-Sants station. Breakfast is buffet style, eat-all-you-want with a good spread and cost 9 euros/ person/ day. In comparison, I had a sandwich with a regular cappuccino for 5 euros at a nearby cafe. A 5 minutes stroll takes you to the nearest metro station Tarragona (green line) which in a few stops, takes you straight to Plaza Catalunya and Les Cortes (For Camp Nou). Airport bus stops at Plaza Espanya which is 15 minutes stroll to the hotel. I asked for a large bed since I was traveling solo. The 'large bed' was 2 singles pushed together and it was uncomfortable sleeping in the centre. I ended taking up one side of the bed. As this is a relatively old hotel, I could also hear the furniture scrapping the floor from time to time though it didn't bother me so much. The pool and terrace was closed to the guests until May.
