Guest reviews for Holiday Inn Express Barcelona City 22@

4 out of 5

Convenient location

My family stayed at this hotel for more than 4 nights while we visited Barcelona.  While it was away from the hustle and bustle of the Ramblas, it  was close to the metro for an easy ride to plaza Catalunya or plaza Espana. Since we were 4 in the room, two slept on the sleeper couch in the room.  I heard no complaints about it being uncomfortable, so I guess it was ok.  Breakfast was included and consisted of pastries, bread, cheeses and salami.  It was all good.  There is a grocery store a block away and a less crowded Ramblas street with restaurants and shops on the same street as the grocery store.  Overall it was a good hotel and was convenient.

This hotel looked alright on the surface.

We had the most uncomfortable night in our life experience at this hotel. The air conditioning was not working properly. We only had a heavy comforter on the bed. We were not able to rest or sleep because of the lack of proper air-conditioning and bed covers for a long trip home the next day.

quiet,great bathtub,nice neighborhood

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Quiet
Cons: No free Internet
A little distance from city center but was very comfortable walking around the neighborhood at night by myself. Nothing fancy but everything we needed and I thought the breakfast was very good and the staff helpful.I didn't know they had a beach close by (read about it in one of these reviews)and am going back in September and will check it out.

Hotel staff were extremely helpful!

Pros: Free breakfast
Room was of average size, clean and beds were fairly comfortable. The best part of my stay was the fact that the hotel had at least one person available that spoke English and they were very helpful in recommending eating establishments for dinner (excellent restaurant choice!) and arranging for transportation from the hotel to our cruise ship. Also, the breakfast buffet was quite good.

Easy and convenient. Was great service/offerings for the price of the room.

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Quiet
Cons: No free Internet, Poor breakfast
Overall hotel was clean and modern looking - had all of your basic necessities available. Wi-Fi was available for 10 euros/24 hours, and accomodations were minimal, and continental breakfast was very limited. My TV wasn't working well in my room (volume wouldn't go up), but the beds were large than what we stayed in during our stay at a 5-star hotel. I would recommend staying here if you want a clean and safe location, and will be spending most of your time sightseeing.

Accommodated all of our needs.

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, affordable
The main reason that we chose the Barcelona Holiday Inn Express was mainly that we are familiar with the services provided by Holiday Inn in the United States. We do not travel out of the country very much so a hotel like Holiday Inn Express made our experience a positive one. The location of the Holiday Inn served our needs in Barcelona; central location to the Gothic Quarters, the beach, tours and restaurants. It was also an easy transfer to the airport and cruise ship. The price was also a factor, very affordable since most of our traveling friends had indicated that hotels in Barcelona were expensive. The quality of the room, morning breakfast, the staff and convenience were first class. If we go back to Barcelona or travel overseas again needing a hotel we will definitely use the Holiday Inn Express again!

This hotel was clean and a typical basic Holiday Inn. The beds are very hard and there are no luxuries. The location is in a sketchy area that as a woman I would have been uncomfortable walking in at night. It is near a strip of stores and small restaurants / coffee shops that lead down to the very plain beach. If you want to be closer to the main shopping and historic buildings you need to look a bit more towards the city center. It's 3 blocks walk to the nearest metro station. It's a good value as some of the hotels in town are quite expensive, but if you want to enjoy your vacation - stay up where the action is at. Staff tried to answer questions, but did have a little attitude of being bothered.

Recent stay

We recently stayed at this hotel and the hotel is very modern and clean. The staff all speaks very good English and very close to a lot of restaurants and shopping and about 8 blocks from the beach.

Generally welcoming. All desk staff were helpful.

Pros: Free breakfast, Quiet
Cons: Nothing close, No free Internet
The inclusive breakfast is pretty good, but it can get quite busy especially if several guests come in at the same time. The hotel could use more staff at the busy time of the day, eg. in the morning when everyone is checking out, there was one person at the counter. You need to pay to use the internet service: 5 euros for 60 minutes. It is in an industrial area, but two blocks away is a mini Ramblas where you could stroll for hours enjoying the local ambience - outdoor restaurants, bars, musicians.
