|Reservation information for the Fira Palace Hotel|
The Fira Palace hotel Barcelona has a main restaurant called El Mall which is rustic in ambience and décor and serves international as well as Catalan food for those feeling a little bit more adventurous. There is also a large piano bar rather comically called Scruples which has live music every evening and a smaller restaurant which serves a buffet breakfast. The hotel facilities are impressive, there is a drugstore and a souvenir boutique in the lobby. The gym is large and there is also an indoor swimming pool, a sauna, massages are available and there is even a hairdresser and a squash court. The car park has room for 235 cars and the hotel has a laundry service. Also my favourite gadget was the satellite newspaper machine in lobby which can print out any paper in the world in 2 minutes.
The businesses facilities are also impressive. There are 18 soundproofed rooms to be used however you wish, the largest can hold 2,500 people. There is direct access from street level for those who come by car, and a variety of services such as video conferencing available. You can hire all types of audiovisual equipment as well.
The Fira Palace hotel Barcelona claims to have the largest bedrooms in the city and I wouldn't doubt it. There are 276 rooms each measuring 42 square metres. In fact most have 2 queen size beds. The rooms are comfortable and soundproofed and the bathrooms are made from Italian marble. All rooms have satellite TV, radio, movie channels, a safe, mini-bar and wireless internet.

The Fira Palace hotel is in perfect location for the Fira, Barcelona's huge halls which hold different conventions and shows every month. The Fira is right in front of the incredibly beautiful Palau Nacional, which is the museum of Catalan art, in front of which is the Magic Fountain. The metro is Espanya and is a 5 minute walk away and from there you can get into the centre of town in 10 minutes. Alternatively off Plaça Espanya are 2 of Barcelona's largest roads, Gran Via and Paral.lel both of which are pleasant to stroll down. The road on which the hotel is situated also has quite a few nice looking restaurants and cafes and there are cash points a 5 minute walk away down Paral.lel or on Plaça Espanya.
Close by there is also all the entertainment you could want in the form of Poble Espanyol, which is a village constructed in the different styles of Spanish architecture, here there are craft shops, fairs and at night bars and clubs.
You can either arrange a private transfer or minibus shared transfer.
Private Transfer A private transfer is dedicated for you and your party only. The driver will be waiting at your arrivals gate holding a sign with your name on it. Your driver will assist you with your luggage to your own private vehicle and you will be driven directly to your hotel.
Minibus Transfer The shared minibus transfer option is cheaper than the private transfer. Unlike a private transfer you would need to make your way to a dedicated meeting point and the vehicle may be shared with other passengers. You will be taken to your hotel however there may be some stops for other passengers along the way.
