Recent reviews

Very good 8.4 From 412 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
After we were let down by the conditions of our pre-booked hotel, we left and booked a room online at Exe Plaza Catalunya. The receptionist was very helpful and although we were early booking in, gave us the keycard to our room Which was comfortable, clean and welcoming. The cost of the room is good value for money. It is a shirt distance from the drop off point for the airport buses. There are also many good restaurants nearby. I thoroughly recommend staying at this hotel.

Nice room but not 4*
The hotel is very modern and stylish as you would expect from a 4* establishment. The staff were nice and accommodating but the room was a little different. The room was small but adequate with space for your suitcases and storage in the cupboards. On first glance the room was nice and clean but upon inspection the floor was a tad dusty and had some grit on it. There were also no coffee amenities in the room at all so all drinks would need to be purchased in the bar below or outside which was a little disappointing. Overall, the staff were friendly and the room was nice, but the cleanliness of the room and lack of amenities does not warrant this a 4 star hotel in my opinion.

Decent business hotel
Decent business hotel. The room was small but clean. Service personal was nice, didn't interact with them much. The area around is extremely busy but that's plaza catalunya, it can't be helped.

good value for money but not a luxurious hotel
It is hard to name this hotel as one that deserves 5 stars,on the other side the price was correct in these circumstances.

Mini break in Barcelona.
We stayed 4 nights at this hotel. We are great fans of the sightseeing hop on hop off bus which we used in day 2. It's an ideal way to get an insight to the popular tourists attractions in one-day then chose where to visit another day. The hotel was close to lots of different shops and restaurants and near a main bus stop to pick local buses which also go to places of interest. Fares are very reasonable too. I have to say we were warned that Barcelona was rife with pick pockets etc and despite all our efforts to keep money and cards secure I had my gold necklace stolen in broad daylight in a scam by 2 people pretending to help us. We will definitely return as there is so much to see.

Barcelona break
The location for this hotel is excellent. Its very close to restaurants, bars, lots of shops and a metro line, however we tended to walk everywhere as we were so central. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I'd read on previous reviews other guests wouldnt class this hotel as 5* and Id have to agree. It was still fairly warm in the room so we needed AC to stay cool. When enquiring about this we were informed AC is switched off in the winter. Also the bluetooth connectivity for the sound system didnt work. Regardless of this hotel and room was still lovely. The room was clean and modern and I would stay here again.

Four star hotel stay!
This hotel is not a five star hotel. Think minimalist 4 star business class and you’ve got it. Everything is tip top but the facilities are limited. Don’t expect a cosy bar to spend a few minutes in or a spa to soothe your weary bones. If you are English forget about making your own tea, watching an English news channel (without paying) or having g room service to fill a gap unless you like sushi. Don’t worry though there is a McDonalds opposite and a KFC nearby. The location is brilliant so there are in fact a great choice of restaurants and bars available and Las Ramblas is 5 mins away. Getting to and from anywhere is easy to with great transport connections including the airport. The hotel is spotless but breakfast a bit hot and miss. If you come down when it’s just opened be prepared to wait for what you want. Going back to the minimalist then don’t expect soothing use of colours or artwork in your room. It’s strictly functional if well finished. Fortunately the shower is excellent. The bed was comfy and the separated desk area (in our room) was useful. All in all we would have been happy if this hotel has been marketed as a four star but to reiterate 5 star it isn’t.
