Style of hotel and ambience
The “Expo Hotel Barcelona” hotel thoroughly embodies the chicness and suaveness of this city. Its bar, lobby and restaurant have an extremely trendy modernistic style to them which is highly aesthetically appealing. And of course after a long day, what could be better than cooling off in the rooftop pool watching the cultural metropolis beneath you.
Special features of the hotel
Expo Hotel Barcelona offers free WiFi throughout the hotel. If you want to pause, we suggest a break in the Stop'n'Bite bar, the place to enjoy Mediterranean cuisine. During the summer, you can cool off in the pool on the terrace (May to September) and finish the day with a tasty gourmet burger at La Terraza BCN Urban Club (May-mid October), a modern and casual atmosphere with stunning views of Montjuïc . To organize a meeting or an event in the city, Expo Hotel Barcelona offers 9 meeting rooms with natural daylight with possibility to shape its large capacity, allowing you to design a custom made event that fulfill your expectations and your guests.

Evaluations of Expo Hotel Barcelona
The hotel is centrally located and easy to reach even with public transportation
The AC apparently only works during summer months. When I arrived (end of March) the temperature was above 27° C and too warm for a good night sleep. I had to sleep with an open terrase door and ´´enjoy´´ the noises of a busy city.
most of the rest
WiFi coverage is good.
If you are looking for hospitality and a good nights sleep, avoid this hotel. Due to both, its concrete architecture and its location at major roads it is very noisy day and night. Every step your neighbours walk is transported through the walls and I could easily follow the conversations of the people in the next room. Two four lane roads are passing the building and their noise prevented me from opening the balcony door. Even with the doors closed I learned more about the schedule of Barcelona busses than I wanted to. With the balcony door closed due to noise the restaurants smell outside was not such a big problem. The people working here are interesting. Reception staff is not very helpful. They seemed reluctant to care about the customer, even though I was the only one around. Worst is the breakfast Stasi, a lady lurking behind a desk in the breakfast room, waiting for you to pass and then yelling behind you “Sorry Sir, sorry” so that you have to return to tell her your room number. Friendly service looks different to me and since Honekers and Francos time such attitude should have been extinct. But there are sunny sides as well. The cleaners I have met where all friendly and really nice. So, poor sleep, bad staff. What about breakfast then? The best about the breakfast are the Korean hotel guests. They are lovely, curious and friendly. The food was the same for 4 days, for Spain a pretty good breakfast, the coffee is good. The location is too far to walk into the city centre. So next time I either take a hotel in the heart of the city or outside at the beach.
Very good Location (Close to the Train Station), even some Restaurants for a quick dinner are available. Bar is OK, rooms are large, clean, quiet. Just can recommend it for a Business stay!
The ´´Hotel´´ parfume in the Lobby an in front of the Hotel is slightly too intensive. But luckily not in the room!
Breakfast was definitely big Advantage and possibility of leaving the luggage in safe place after check out.
Staff was very friendly and helpful
Forniture is quite old, room is noisy. Not so much for a 4 star. Shower had problems.
Behaivor of the hotel staff is very nice, polite.
Room is quite big but shape of the room is not convenient. There is no electric plug close to the bed.
- location is excellent: near a major train station, near a bus station from the airport... nice area - staff: very competent and polite - breakfast: wide variety of hot and cold food
- great location near Plaça Espanya (5 min walk, 1 station on L3) - hotel interior is just improved (at least on floors)
- room walls are pretty thin, noises of rooms on the same floor and the floor above/below could be quite loud due to the flooring material
Very well located (near the main railway station)
Bad sound isolation ..
