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.
We stayed at this hotel before we went on our Mediterranean cruise, and at Hotel Indigo Barcelona after the cruise. There are pros and cons for both hotels. Crowne Plaza has much bigger room and offer nice perks for people with IHG Elite Status. (Including nice buffet breakfast and tapas happy hours.) Location of this hotel, however, is not as convenient as Hotel Indigo, if you're there for sightseeing. The closest subway stop is 7-minute walk. The staff was very helpful and welcoming.
"Great Hotel as always"
We had a wonderful stay at Crowne Plaza. The hotel is located close to Plaza de Espanya with Airport shuttle connection, and metro stations. It is also 5 min walk to the "magic fountain". The hotel service is great, and it even sent surprise gifts for birthday celebrations.
"Great Hotel - Superb Rooms"
This is a really good friendly hotel with lovely staff and extremely large rooms. Our IHG status gave us a Club upgrade, and it was great to return to the hotel each evening and relax in the Club Lounge with a lovely glass of Tempranillo. The hotel isn't that convenient for public transport, but we found that there was always three or four taxis waiting for fares outside. Overall, a great stay in a really pleasant hotel.
"Not enough value for money"
220 EUR per night is just too expensive for value. Location is close to the "magic fountain". Breakfast is charged separately. In addition we had the pleasure to stay there while the hotel was fully booked. It was hard to get even a seat in the small breakfast room. Spa is not included and charged separately. Big and Clean rooms. Needs a bit of renovation. WLAN included. Very friendly and helpful staff at reception. The booking hotline, though, is organized by a third party company and is rude, incompetent and unfriendly.
"Good location and very helpful staff"
We had a wonderful short stay at this hotel. The staff is very friendly and considerate and allowed us to check-in to a spare room as we arrived with a young baby very early in the morning. The king size bed room was very spacious and the cot that they provided was clean and looked new. Mattress and pillow was very comfortable and the bathroom had all the necessary amenities. Location is good and walking distance to the Palau Nacional.
