      Good location, and fair price for a nice hotel. Free internet at lobby, good breakfast!

      We booked the hotel for 4 nights based on room only rate and add breakfast for 12 Euro/pp per day. When we check in I mentioned to the front desk that we would like to cancel the last day breakfast as we need to check out before 6:30am to catch flight. This however is not possible, although the hotel only start serving breakfast at 7:00. I though this is unfair, as you can cancel the room 24hrs before check in, but cannot cancel 1 breakfast 4 days ahead? The hotel promised to provide breakfast at lobby from 5am the day we check out, however it turn out to be only coffee and cookie. I think this is outrage to charge 24 euro (2x12) for 2 cups of coffee and 6 cookies.

      Room very nice, big, clean, staff very friendly. A quiet area, but very well connected to all directions. Good value for money.

      Restaurant and bar and the friendly atmosphere

      Fitness center should have opened before 7 AM

    • Couple
      6.2

      Whilst the hotel and facilities were a good standard the room itself was very basic and old fashioned which I did not expect. That being said the bathroom was very nice as were the amenties provided in it.

      One complaint I would have is the extortionate prices in the bar - we came back one evening and ordered two gin and tonics and got a bill for 28 Euro - you wouldnt pay that in a London 5 star hotel! (and this is only a four star).

      The location of Fira Palace was perfect for us.

    • Older travelers

      Very nice hotel in good location. Initial impressions were excellent and when we went up to the room we were surprised how spacious it was. Reason for our stay was to go to the Palau Sant Jordi for a concert but it was also an easy walk to the port and La Rambla as well as Plaza Catalunya.

      Between dropping our bags off and returning to the room one of the staff had been smoking in there. My husband and I are both very sensitive to cigarette smoke and we were also on a non smoking floor so the smell lingered. Had the smell been there when we arrived I would have insisted on another room.

    • Couple
      9.6

      room is big enough (executive), and lovely. Bath room is very contemporary, clean and good. The bath is a bit small though. Good breakfast. The hotel is very close to most City attractions. walking distance from music fountain, 15 minutes from la ramblas. Lovely hotel in summary and would definetly come back.

      The spa was not satisfactory. In fact there is only a swimming pool and a sauna but no jacuzzi. However the gym was good. If spa is a very important part of your holiday then its not the right place. Otherwise it is a lovely hotel and really enjoyed the place. would come back again.

      Staff were very good. Appearance & Presentation of Hotel itself. Cleanliness. Overall a good experience

      Little bit far out to walk to city centre, but metro made up for it. Food menu seemed expensive.

      Good hotel with large comfortable rooms and nice bath. Very good breakfast. Location is not good enough (to far from main sights), but price-quality comparison of the hotel is excellent.

      Comfortable and well maintained. Great location in the heart of Barcelona.
