      Historical Traveler Reviews Crowne Plaza Barcelona - Fira Center

      Wow, well worth the money


      Afer several months of research for the perfect hotel for my husband and my vaction, I banked on the reviews of I am very glad we did. The Fira was perfect. It was clean, convient, a taxi hub, had a pool a work out area with classes everyday, an oversized room (even for Florida standards), fully stocked bathroom with bathtub and shower as well as an another shower stall with a multihead jets. The metro was a 5 minute walk. The plaza was the best in Barcelona with a nightly light and music fountain show. Very romantic.

      I looked into several other hotels and later came across them in our travels, our choice was the best. Everything on Las Ramblas was a joke.

      Great location. Huge rooms.


      Despite what the website says, our room was not soundproof. I was awakened by a baby crying at 4am. Also, there is a schoolyard directly in front. So plan your siesta after 3pm on weekdays. Other then that, the hotel was awesome. Huge room has a big bed, writing table, couch with coffee table. The bathroom has a fantastic shower with 3 shower heads. It also has a bath with a shower. Dual sinks with enough counter space for all my stuff and seperate room with toilet. The hotel is in a great location. We walked mostly but if you need a cab, it costs about 3-4euros from the hotel to the train station...cabs are right outside the hotel and Sundays are more expensive.

      Couldn't find a better hotel


      This hotel was perfect! The staff was helpful, the rooms were very large (American large). The bathroom was large enough for 2 people to share at the same time. We asked for an upgrade and they had one and cheerfully gave it to us. The breakfast was a buffet and very good. It was in an excellent location (10-15 minute walk from the Espanyola metro station). It was good to be in a quiet location after being in the noisy city all day. Taxis were always available in front of the hotel. Would recommend this hotel to anyone going to Barcelona and would definitely stay there again!

      Fabulous hotel and superb location!!!!


      I agree completely with all of the reviews. This hotel is fabulous with huge rooms and the location is walking distance from EVERYTHING (bring your sneakers!!!) I would definnitely recommend this hotel and it will be my hotel of choice whenver I am in Barcelona. Also the rates are great!!! I got the best deal on expedia.

      Great location to explore from


      I found this hotel very comfortable and an ideal place from which to explore Barca. The staff are quite friendly and very proficient in English. The room itself was very large and quite sufficient for the two of us. Central Barca (Placa Catalunya) is just 3 metro stops away from Placa Espanya - a 10min stroll from Hotel. I work out regularly and found their gym among the best ive ever seen - very good facilities for the fit folks.

      One point though, room service is a bit pricey for what you actually get.

      Other than that, I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting this amazing city.

      Great for a family


      We stayed by the week of Valentines Day, 2004.The hotel is huge with a lot of amenities. It offers free stay for the kids under 12 (maximum 4), which is not common in European hotels. The rooms have double queen beds with plenty space for the family with beautiful bathroom. Located in a quit and a convenience location. All Montjuic attractions are in walking distance, nice walk to "plaza Espana". A lot of "tapa" places around. The buffet breakfast is served in a pleasant restaurant and all staff is friendly and courteous. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a modern hotel in the admirable city of Barcelona.

      Comfortable, convenient - great base for exploring Barcelona


      We stayed here in Jan 04. As advertised, the rooms are very large, quite comfortable, and clean; we also used the sofabed, and there was still plenty of space. The bathrooms had separate shower and toilet compartments. The wireless internet worked well.

      The location makes it easy to enjoy Montjuic (museums, Olympic sites, parks,); we walked everywhere, although some weren't close. Great evening fountain show at the Paleo National just down the street.

      It was a short walk to Placa Espanya (direct train to Monserrat, main metro station, stop for Bus Turistica). We used bus and metro to other sites.

      We found the hotel breakfast buffet very expensive and only ok. I wish there had been more restaurants in close proximity. The hotel bar was very reasonable.

      The staff was friendly. We were very pleased with the hotel.

      Loved this place


      I was there for a convention and loved this place. Loved the fact that it had two showers in case you are sharing the room. The room itself is great, nice and big. The location is good, it is in Plaza Espaņa. Close drive to las ramblas. If I go back, I would definetly stay there.

      Highly recommended


      Small entrance leading into large, cool lobby with quiet piped music.

      Pleasant, friendly Reception staff. My standard room (Expedia bargain!) had 2 double beds, sofa, writing desk, comfortable chairs, TV, good air-con/blackout curtains/soundprooofing. Bathroom had 2 washbasins, bath/shower, plus separate shower and toilet cubicles, and more towels than I own!

      Everything spotlessly clean.Breakfast good value and excellent quality.

      Espanya metro station 6-7 min. walk, but bus #55 stops just across the road and takes 10 min. to the main Placa de Catalunya and the Ramblas.

      I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

      Quiet & Relaxing


      My husband and I stayed here 31-Jan-03 for 2 nights. Simple, BIG, clean rooms with impressive bathrooms. Staff were helpful. Quiet, safe area. 3 minute stroll to the metro Espanya. Right next to Mont Juic. Would stay again.

      ... below the village, which sits on the edge of a cliff. I really really loved Ronda and it was the perfect day trip-- only 1:45 each way on the bus.

      It's crazy watching the calendar as the weeks fly by, it's going so fast but I think I'm taking advantage of it as much as I can.

      I was thinking last night about what this whole experience-- really starting all the way back in July when I started working at Golden Trout-- has meant to me and ...

      The ship arrived in Barcelona at 5:30 in the morning but we were able to have a leisurely breakfast and disembarked around ten. We said good bye to our friends Jocelyn and Ken and hopped on a tourist bus to get a quick view of the city. The photos are scenes captured from the bus. We grabbed a quick lunch and headed to the airport for our flight to Nice.


      Barcelona and Benicassim Festival

      ... of the rooms in the Paris hotel! We decided to chill and head to the beach when we got there, having had days of walking around Paris, before going out for paella and sangria that evening - delicious! We then got the train to Benicassim the next morning for the festival which started that night. Benicassim festival itself is a mixed bag of music, everything from international bands to local spanish artists, and there are 40,000 people so it's fairly big. Thinking back, it's ...

      ... people are friendly, and the language barrier (Catalan being the primary language in the region) is easy enough to overcome, as almost everyone speaks Spanish--one of the effects of the Oppressive Franco dictatorship--and more than a few speak English, due to the high volume of English speaking tourists that flood the region. To a foreigner, Catalan is a troublesome language, closer to Portuguese than Spanish, and nearly impossible ...

      ... day each taking place in one of the eight original villages that make up Barcelona. Poble Sec was one of them. Our neighborhood parade consisted mostly of ethnic dances by Latin American immigrants. (Funny, I had never thought much of the colonist-imperialist connection between Latin America and Spain like between the U.S. and England.)

      Our favorite Carnavale event was sponsored by the "orange" El Born barri – it was a big confetti-throwing ...
