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 Tripadvisor.com. 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.
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.

Arrived at Barcelona Airport around 8:15 in the morning. Beautiful sunny day temperature feels terrific. It didn't take us long to get thru customs and collect our bags before catching a taxi. First impression of Barcelona suitable lye organised. They had masses of taxis all lined up no waiting.

At a point in the late afternoon, we got off at the waterfront and did some exploration on foot. This was a modern, crowded area which wasn't our favorite. But we followed Rick Steves' advice and headed for the Ramblas. This cut down through the heart of the historic area but ...
... It was Adam’s birthday in Spain so we bought a huge Spanish flag and all signed it for him but now it’s perfect because our friends come watch our games and have a big flag for us. The teams are of three and the court is tiny with hard floors and we use lawn chairs as goals. The first game I fell on a goal and I have a sick bruise on my arm now. I also got head butted the first game against Portugal (accidentally of course) and my nose may or may not be broke. ...
We started the day somewhat slower today. We headed down to the La Rambla to the marina to visit the Columbus Monument. It was constructed in honour of CC and serves as a reminder that Columbus reported to Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand V after his first trip to the new continent. On the monument CC is pointing to the new land. The monument is 47.2 metres tall and made of bronze. The base of the monument ...
... i, It went in my comfy clothes no makeup hair put up in a quick ponytail. When I walked in I noticed lots & lots of people with there Merk Serono tags on so I just found a spot off to the side where Emily and I could sit for breakfast. Emily and I just sat down and a lovely French lady came over and asked if she could sit, "of course" I said.
She looked at me a bit funny and asked if I did a talk yesterday at the conference, ...
