Dear Carlos, Thanks for your feedback. Regards,

4 out of 5


It was a good room.  They do not provide water or coffee in the room.  They did not provide pool towels.  It did have a great Terrace view and it was close to public Transportation and tourist bus stops.

stayed there for 7 nights and really liked the place.

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, spacious room
Recently stayed 7 nights at Expo. We were meeting a relative and her husband who were staying at another hotel that their travel agent recommended....it was more expensive. When they met us in the lobby of the Expo, my relative's comment was," so you got a four star place!". A good choice for Barcelona near subway (metro) stop and walking distance to Sants train station.

The hotel is convenient to the train station and an inexpensive cab ride anywhere in Barcelona.

Pros: convenient location, helpful staff, no language issues
Cons: No free Internet
Perhaps the best thing about the hotel is its location in close proximity to the train station Barcelona Sants. That and the rooftop bar with its compelling night time vistas of Barcelona make this a very affordable stay, especially when you are using Barcelona as a jumping off point or disembarkation point for or coming from the rest of Europe.

Very flexible with check in on one of our days. Nice buffet breakfast for an extra charge.

Pros: near the major sant estacio' train station.
Cons: only a couple mediocre restaurants nearby.
Very accomodating with getting us into our room at 10 am when we really only wanted to check our bags before going out into the city. Staff very nice and very informative. Was a bit noisy on the train station side and the walls seem very thin.

Excellent location

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
The location of this hotel is perfect for exploring Barcelona. It is across the plaza from the train station, near easily navigated buses, and within walking distance to La Rambla. It is a small hotel popular with tour groups but in a neighborhood type area. Many local restaurants offer excellent, well priced meals. Breakfast is available, though not included in the price, but we enjoyed daily breakfast in a restaurant frequented by commuters on the street level. The hotel staff was pleasant and eager to serve the guests, and the beds were wonderful.

This hotel was conveniently located to all transport needs.

Cons: No free Internet
The hotel is located adjacent to the train station and near the subway station. Travel to and from Barcelona airport via train and to any point in the city via subway is very convenient.

Close to Train station, safe location

Pros: Close restaurants, close food store
Cons: No free Internet, Noisy
Average clean hotel ,good quality for the money. A bit noisy for day time sleepers, the hotel caters to the business and on the run traveller. Useful for firsttime visitors to Barcelona ,who are willing to walk everywhere as the hotel is in the real heart off the city,flush away from major train station and grand boulevards. Confortably safe in walking distance to all major attractions and non sophisticated travellers ready to explore can have a decent and fair confortable overnight stay. Who would realy want to stay in, with so many thing happening out there? Enjoy walking on the large boulevards as Expo Hotel Barcelona is easily accessible to all, taxi present at the door all times, and large shoping center downstairs. Daytime not quiet, no free internet, hey it's Spain after all.
