|Reservation Information For The Hotel Expo Barcelona|
There is a conundrum with this Expo hotel Barcelona. To me it appeared that this hotel is a bit past its prime, the façade is a little shabby and the interior which was once so modern now pales in comparison to some of the newer hotels in town. However there must be some reason, when I visited, the lobby was completely packed full of tourists. Obviously this hotel is still classed as good value, comfortable and functional accommodation.
The Expo hotel Barcelona is a large hotel and has good facilities. These include a laundry service, a day care nursery on request, a car park some 50 metres from the hotel. A foreign currency exchange and a fax service. The hotel also has a swimming pool and roof terrace which is open during the summer. If you would like to hire a car or book a tour the hotel will be happy to help.
The Expo hotel has 7 function rooms. These can hold from 12 to 90 people, depending on their configuration. They can also be used to form one large room to hold up to 1000 people in a cocktail setup. The hotel can provide high-tech audiovisual equipment and specialized staff should you need them.
The rooms are plain and comfortable, all have been decorated using a blue and ochre colour scheme. There are 435 rooms in all. All have TV with satellite channels, air-conditioning and heating, a desk, a marble bathrooms with hairdryer and toiletries, a small terrace a minibar and a safe box. The views unfortunately are just of the surrounding buildings and roads.
The Expo hotel Barcelona is just metres from the Sants Estacio metro stop and the Barcelona Sants train Station.
