Great Stay at Fira Crowne Plaza
  • Recommended hotel

  • City break
  • May 2014
Our stay at the Crowne Plaza Fira was very pleasent, No complaints really, it was tidy clean and the lifts were very fast. We didn't eat at the restaurant as there wasn't many people dining in there so we didn't really want to eat there as we wanted some atmosphere. The room was great as we generally got upgraded, the only thing is that you do not get additional priority points if you eat at their restaurants or drink in their bars read hotel review

The Fira Palace is now called the Crowne Plaza and joined the IHG chain. Rooms are large and modernized with new bathrooms and a large flatscreen smart tv. The hotel is located in a rather quiet area - with easy access to the center of the City. Staff is friendly and very helpful. Breakfast is variated but a little pricy. Overall a nice hotel experience. read hotel review

    The rooms were quite large, we had also a beautiful view. The decor was a bit older, but always clean (even the carpet). Air conditioning system was modern and not annoying. The bathroom was large, there was a bathtub and shower and a separate shower. Everything was very clean, but may new fixtures not hurt.

With the room cleaning we were also very satisfied. Additional services such as laundry or similar we didn't use, what i did right thought it was great, were the 'pillows à la carte' (one could select oneself, which fill the pillows should have).

    The hotel is located in a quiet area, but very central. One is in 5 minutes to the underground stations poble sec or pl. Espanya. The font magica is also right around the corner and it is also in about 15 minutes walking distance in the old quarter. From the airport you can get very easy access from terminal 1 with bus 46 for 0,90 Euro (if you 10. card buys, otherwise 2 €the single fare) to the pl. Espanya. There is also an airport bus, but it was more expensive.

Really central location and very large room a great price. Ideal with children. Breakfast buffet reasonable but it costs Euro 12-per person. At least are children to 6 years free of charge. Unfortunately is at the hotel a lot Dilapidated. The Fenstergriff be in the room nearly fell off. The carpets were disliked. The indoor swimming pool was very dingy. To three days were still the same Pavement and many hair on the floor. Nevertheless a great stay in a pleasant hotel. read hotel review

The hotel is located in a quiet area and is nevertheless only 4 subway-stations away from the center. In 2 minutes on foot one is the magic fountain, the evenings at certain times an incomparable mountain spectacle offers! When direct booking on the homepage of the hotel we got a cheap long stay rate with an upgrade to an executive room. This was huge and wonderful furnished. There was not only a couch and the desk, but even a dining table with 2 chairs. After strenuous Sightseeing you could as wonderful relaxation. Only a coffee/ Teekochmöglichkeit the whole can be ... improved. Further suggestions for improvements: a shoe cleaning machine and a renovation of the swimming pool. But apart from that everything was excellent. Our in short: we should again to Barcelona fly, then we will certainly again in this hotel live! read hotel review

The hotel is located close to the Placa Espania below the Montjuic in the immediate vicinity of the exhibition center of Barcelona; d. H. no exhibition = low price. It is a 4 star hotel, which this category also really do it justice. For Spanish standards huge room with two double beds, couch, desk, large flat screen TV, in-room safe. The bathroom with bathtub and separate shower, a glass door separate toilet with bidet; two sinks. Several free Internet terminals with a printer for guest ... use.

Within three stops to the Ramblas and the harbor. Aerobus from airport also stops at the station Espanya (around 25 minutes, per person 5€). A taxi costs approximately €20 .
