Located in the heart of the Montjuic, the cultural area of Barcelona, Fira Palace hotel is a few minutes away from the main tourist sites in Barcelona, such as the famous Plaza de España, Avenida Gran Via, the Fountains of Montjuic, the National Palace, Miró museum, Las Ramblas, the port, Monumento a Colón, the Olympic complex…etc.
This property exceeded my expectations! Stayed her during New Years and it was at ground zero. The fire works, the crowds and we were never far from our place. Get the club as an add on. You will not be disappointed.
"Great Staff who really care !"
My first visit had a few problems. I told the Manager on duty what had happened to upset me and from that point on, she absolutely went out of her way to make it up to me. My internet was fast, the room temperature was perfect, I enjoyed my visit to the spa. So Maria and Begona, with their professional attitude and sincere customer service, totally made me into a fan of the Crowne Plaza Barcelona. Thank you ladies, I'll see you soon.
We stayed here for 3 nights and we thought the hotel was excellent. We stayed in a superior room which had a large bathroom (walk-in double shower, bath, bidet and toilet....the shower was excellent). The room itself had a humungous bed, huge flat screen and some lounge chairs. It was really comfortable and clean. I didn't realise that we'd also booked the club lounge access which was great......free Moet, single malt and all the other drinks you could think of. We had a separate check in and private breakfast although the breakfast downstairs was hotter. The hotel is located right next to the Montjuic park and Font Magica. It's a 20 minute stroll to La Ramblas. Would defo stay again. Tips....We had an AMAZING meal at the Agust restaurant, would definitely recommend a visit. Another tip is to book the Sagrada Familia tickets before you go. The blue bus tour was cosmic. We had an evening meal at the food market which was epic, can't remember the name though. Tonnes of seafood, snails and sangria.....delish!!!
"top hotel, perfect for business stay in Barcelona"
So one thing - not a critique - but for the traveler it is good to know. the taxis in Barcelona are problem. they might take you on a ride. the Crown Plaza used to be called Fira Center, so make sure you polish your spanish and mention near the Plaza d Espagna to make it clear where you are going. I got there and was escorted to the exec lounge, the hotel offered an upgrade to an executive suite. the room has a separate bed room with ensuite bathroom and a living room that gives access to both bathroom and bed room. the bathroom was magnificent. one room with a beautiful walk-in shower and then a separate room with bidée, toilet and bath tub. the living room feature a huge Philips LED TV and wall connectors to hook up your laptop. there is a bar with Nespresso machine and fridge. a door leads to the nice balcony with a bar table and two seats. overall really luxurious and spacy. the bedroom had a king size comfy bed, enough lights and an area to lay down your luggage next to the bed, which is very handy. there is a window leading to the balcony. double window so you are not disturbed by the street traffic. the room was clean and room service showed up once a day to leave a bottle of water and nice sweets. there is also discounted access to SPA but I could not make. will def. try next time. the exec lounge where I did the checkin procedure was spacey and full of comfy lounge chairs. it servers breakfast, small lunch and evening food including drinks. the lady at the reception was very helpful and did call me up after I got to the room to check everything was ok. Perfect! that's customer service. that how you do it. in case you are a hotel owner, come and learn here. Thanks Renaissance.
We stayed here the day before our cruise. It's a very nice hotel my only real complaint would be that the restaurants close pretty early and the food from room service isn't that good. We loved that it was pretty close to the cruise port and we were able to check in at 9 am instead of 3. I would definitely stay again.
