Hola, Just got back from NYE in Barcelona, it was great, hotel was easy to find, 10 minute bus from the airport to Plaza Espania then 5 minute walk. Room was excellent, very large, clean and tidy with a nice view. Well equipped bathroom with his and hers sink (but she still nicked my razor!!). Hotel staff were nice apart from the Bar man, would advise people not to bother with hotel bar, drinks are overpriced and at every other bar we visited the bar staff were happy to see us! didn't get to use the pool as it was shut when ever we thought about using it. Breakfast was good, self service buffet with plenty of choice. hotel well placed for a walk to the harbour or town (about 20 mins) we defo go back to this hotel. try and find bar 13 for best mojitos outisde of cuba!

We stayed at the Fira Palace for 4 days in October and were impressed. Caring staff, first class accommodations, impressive ambiance, convenient and affordable. How can you top that?

We had 3 rooms for my wife and 3 teen age sons and 1 friend. hotel staff were courteous and friendly despite demands our group put apon them. The hotel bed rooms were magnificent particularly the twin king size beds and marble bath room. It was quiet but only 15 minute walk to the main attractions of barcelona.

A fine hotel in a quiet part of the city but only a short walk from some of the attractions. The room was comfortable and spacious with excellent facilities. All in all an excellent hotel.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Hotel Fira Palace Barcelona

REALLY BAD SERVICE IN BARCELONA

from A TripAdvisor Member
Fira Palace Hotel in Barcelona, right next to the city’s big conference centre. The building’s fine and elegant, but the staff have no idea. After lugging in a heavy case past the blank stare of the “porter”, the next task was to interrupt the check-in staff’s conversation after three attempts. That evening, after waiting nearly 15 minutes for restaurant staff to offer a drink or to take an order, the walk-out was greeted with surprise.

Across the city, I’ve also stayed at the Hilton which was top-notch, possibly because it has international standards and a well-known commitment to training.

The local papers were full of worry about declining tourist figures. The rise in numbers for countries like Egypt and Dubai, homes of amazing service, should be sounding the warning bell. On the city’s seafront is a statue of Christopher Columbus pointing out to sea, probably in the direction conference and holiday business is going!

Great retreat!

from elemental
We just returned from a 9 day trip to Spain where we spent the first 4 nights at the Hotel Fira Palace, Barcelona. This hotel was ideal for us (3 lady travelers) as the room we shared was very large with plenty of closet space and a large bathroom. The location is out of the hustle and bustle, but within close proximity of transportation. Stay away from the breakfast, although good, very expensive. There are several little places within walking distance that offer a good Spainish breakfast at much more reasonalbe prices. Walk to Plaza de Espana and catch the Bus Touristico for a grand adventure! We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this hotel to our friends.

No disappointments here

from A TripAdvisor Member
October 18-21 2004
How nice to be pleasantly surprised when entering your hotel room for the first time. Loads of space for the three of us. Great bathroom with all the extras, and wow that shower was exhiliarating. Good double glazing cut out the noise from outside, but soundproofing not so good from the room next door. A very good deal from Hotelclub but check out the hotels own site for special promotions-it was cheaper! Swimming pool and gym were great to unwind after a long day in the city, but watch the wet floor tiles, they are slippery. Location is great for Montjuic area, magic fountains, Olympic village, Exhibition site and National Art Museum, but quite a trek to city centre. Food in hotel at five star prices. Good cafe opposite for cheaper breakfast if you want to enjoy the local scene. Could have done with complimentary tea & coffee tray in the room. Get this hotel at a last minute price and you won't be disappointed by the comfort and quality, but if you want a lively atmosphere with less travelling look in the Las Ramblas area. A good buy is the three day travel ticket for buses, metro, train and funicular railway.

luxury for family with young kids

from djoSurrey_uk
Just returned from staying at the excellent Fira Palace hotel for a few days after staying in a villa for a week.

Before choosing a hotel it was a concern about staying in a family room in a forgien hotel as previously our experience was that the family rooms were simply a normal room with a couple of temporary beds squeezed in - therefore making your room resemble one big bed space with no room to move - nightmare!!

Take it from us the family rooms here were the best we have stayed in and were MASSIVE. The bathrooms had both a bath and seperate shower (handy for multi tasking with small children). This place is a must for those staying with a couple of young kids and not wanting seperate rooms.

The hotel facilities were excellent, with excellent A/C and thee was no noise to disturbe us (again this was a concern).

Although the pool was closed on the Sunday...On the Monday we were in the pool but you do need bathing caps which were supplied by a bloke from the gym (upstairs) for free.

I took advise from this site to ditch the hire car and travel around by taxi (again v cheap compared to London/SE)..I wouldn't fancy driving around Barcelona..its insane...

Overall highly reccommended and we will be staying again...FANTASTIC

Luxury in the Suburbs

from Mahler
Parents and a 12-year-old from Oxfordshire, UK, for 5 nights in mid-August. The great advantage about being a couple of miles out of the town centre is the peace and quiet and the large, luxury rooms. Bus stops and the metro station are nearby so there is no problem in getting to places of interest and there are inexpensive passes for 2 to 5 days which cover all public transport. Five minutes walk away are the stupendous "magical fountains" which erupt into a sound and light display from 9pm Thursday-Sunday during summer. Staff were attentive and friendly and the air-conditioning was a highly-effective barrier against temperatures which reached 35C. Buffet breakfasts were standard international fare. The only downside was that the indoor pool is closed from 3pm Saturday to 9am Monday in the summer - an arrangement clearly made to suit the hotel management rather than the guests. Barcelona is a great city for a short break - with a side trip to Montserrat a must. This is an hour by rail from Espanya station (400 yards from the hotel). Take the cable car option (included with the train ticket) and then the St Joan funicular. A mile-long walk from there landed us in the midst of a spectacular mountain landscape.

Excellent Hotel

from bayard1music
Just returned from a five day stay with the family. August 2004. Had two adjacenet rooms. Very good in all respects, large rooms, air con. needed in these temperatures. Very good breakfasts. Highly recommended.

Excellent choice

from Stevescott
My family and I have just returned from an excellent holiday spent partly at the Fira Palace and then in the Grand Melia down the road in Sitges. Both hotels were chosen after many hours researching this site and I am really glad I put the effort in.

As has been mentioned before the Fira Palace is not the most centrally located hotel but it is handy for some locations e.g. the Montjuic fountain. It also benefits from being a bit quiter than some. We didn't eat in the hotel so I can't comment on the food but we did make use of the other facilites like the excellent free gym.

The rooms are incredibly large, even the standard rooms have two queen size beds. The air conditioning worked like a dream which was just as well given the temperatures that we had whilst there. The room was cleaned and tidied spotlessly each day we were there. A clean set of sheets each day was bliss after a hot trudge around Barcelona! I didn't actually see inside a superior room but they must have been pretty good to beat our standard rooms which cost just €96 per room per night booked directly thorugh the hotel's web site.

A few quick words of warning on Barcelona itself; learn some Spanish before you go. Like most Brits my family isn't much good at foreign languages. We normally holiday on the Spanish islands where the British, along with the Germans dominate. This means that Engish is widely spoken by taxi drivers, waiters etc. This isn't true in Barcelona! In a way this was also a plus for me as it was nice to see where Spaniards went on holiday.

The other thing to watch out for is La Rambla. Walking down the street was an interesting experience and reminded me of home during the festival. However, beware the rip off cafes/restatuarants. We were stung at one place for €40 for 2 cokes, a beer and half a bottle of wine. They also wanted us to pay over €11 each for the worst looking pizzas you could ever imagine. Fortunately we sent them back without paying for them. I can't remeber its name, but the moral of this tale, is if it is easy to get a table then you probably don't want it.

Fortunately this isolated experience did not spoil the holiday and we will be back again soon, probaly in the Fira Palace.

excellent professionally run hotel

from dave_evans
Exceptionally comfortable spacious rooms with quality fittings. Excellent sound proofing. Effective air conditioning. Spotlessly clean. Professional, helpful staff. Do Not Disturb door label always respected.

negatives of the Fira Palace

from A TripAdvisor Member
Location: Good for Poble Espanya, Palace weekend fountain display & Fira Exhibition Halls. 10 min walk to metro station connecting to Rambla or 40 min walk. Hotel much quieter than staying in central area. Hotel Facilities: Large bedroom but bathroom suffers with 'spanish drain' smell. Small charge for using Safe. Good buffet breakfast. Overall: too far away from centre for a 1 or 2 night stay but good for longer stay - much quieter than the average BCN hotel! Best use would be for attending the exhibition halls.

Great Location

from doc4converse
If you are willing to spend the extra money, this is the place to stay. We stayed here one-night prior to starting our week-long cruise. It was worth it after the long-flight from the US. Taxi's are always available. There are bell-hops/bell-boys to help carry your luggage to your room, and the breakfast buffet was delicious. The location was also perfect with nearby places to explore and nice little restuarants and cafes to enjoy.

Top Local Tips for Barcelona

Sightseeing must see Apart from the compusory visit to the Sagrada Familia any fan of arcitecture should also do the tour of the Casa Batillo which is beautiful and absolutely unique.

Clickair & Edinburgh Airport Hotel good but do not fly with Clickair. They have been a disgrace with lost or delayed luggage from their flights commonplace on returning from Barcelona airport. Also as happenned to us do not expect anything more than very poor cooperation and communication from them, Iberia or the Menzies distribution staff at Edinburgh airport. No-one was prepared to take ownership of the problem and our case is still sitting at Barcelona airport. Expedia also offered no assistance in this matter.

Car advice. If driving in from the airport, the hotel's very close to Plaza Espana - we got very lost trying to find it until we asked people for directions to Plaza Espana instead of giving them the name and addres of hotel.
