Spent two night before and after a cruise and found the hotel and it's personnel to be superb, very friendly and helpful. Enjoyed dinner and brunch as well.Genuine Expedia guest review
When traveling to another country you never know what to expect. We were susprised at how amazing this hotel was. When you first walk into the huge lobby with it's round conference table and futuristic theme, you know you made the right choice. The rooms were a little small, but that is Europe. Clean, bright and comfortable is everything you want from […] a room and this had it. I loved the shower with it's large rain head and plenty of water pressure. Your entire body got wet as soon as you walked under the spout. The breakfast was a little expensive so we ate elsewhere. Helpfull staff and a taxi stand right outside the Hotel. Nothing but good things to say about our stay. Wish we had more time. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Very convenient to Sants train station. Modern, small room. Very large King bed. Hard pillow.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"GREAT location if Ur comfortable w mass transit"
The rooms WERE quiet in spite of being atop the train station. The space theme grew on me, but the bathroom arrangment forces a high degree of intimacy. The hotel is not close to much but a quick Metro ride drops you right at the top of Las Ramblas. We made several train trips to cities outside the city; Tarragona, Girona and Sant Sardurni so this location […] was ideal for us. The bus tours of the city [highly recommended!] had a stop right across the street. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
My first visit to Spain. I will definitely come to Spain and stay at Barcelo Sants again. I like the futuristic theme.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to all transportation"
All transportation is immediately accessible. Hotel is squeaky clean and very modern. The bathroom design is a little different, tad less private. Best pillows ever. Staff were very helpful and pleasant. Great 3-night stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient for the train station"
Was a nice hotel. The arrangement of the rooms was a little odd. It was laid out as one room with out the bathroom being a separate room which is kind of unusual. Still cool though with a nice view of the city and stuff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Too far from attractions."
The location is too far from the main attractions, need to take taxi to go everywhere or get acquaintance with the Barcelona map really quick. Beware of the mini bar, way too expensive, just go to the corner market. Lots of walking from this hotel located on top of the train station, it will not be a next time for us.Genuine Expedia guest review
I had to stay there only one night before going on a cruise, but i was really impressed by room quality, its modern "space" design and location. Would stay here again n definitely recommend to friends.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Walls as thin as cardboard!"
The wall was so thin that we could hear neighbors snore.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent place for exit and re-entry to everywher"
This was my second stay with Barcelo Sants, Everyone one from the the maid services and up were pleasing. My sincere thanks to hotel staff ( this is the wrong spelling - sorry) Gilesia - young woman at the check-in counter.Genuine Expedia guest review
"stay near the train station"
great location - right on top of the train station and a stop on the hop on and hop off tour. Would recommend the room for a couple rather than just friends, since the bathroom is not separate from the rest of the room and does not afford much privacy.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel in superb location great value"
The staff was very knowledgeable and helpful. We checked in after departing our cruise ship for an overnight stay. The hotel was able to get us in our requested room by 10:00 am, well before normal check-in. The room was immacuate, had a great view and interesting decor.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Two thumbs up for "2001" hotel"
Wonderful contemporary hotel (think "2001: A Space Odyssey") with easy access to all of Barcelona via trains, with the major station just downstairs. While the area doesn't have any "attractions," it is much more pleasant that I was expecting and, there is a huge department store across the street where you can buy wine and food. We had "happy hours" […] every evening before dinner, drinking in not only the wine, but the wonderful view from our huge window. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great, modern hotel on top of Sants Estació."
Loved this hotel! Very modern, very convenient. luxurious beds, sheets, and pillows. Great design aesthetic.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to ground transportation"
Wonderful hotel. Clean rooms. Great prices. Close to buses for touring city and is right above the train station. Easy train ride to the airport. Arrived early and were able to store our luggage with the hotel until check-in time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice location & welcoming staff"
Although Barcelo' Hotel Sants is not located in the downtown district which many tourist would prefer, the hotel is located directly above the train/metro station (not noisy) which makes getting into the city and other locations a major convenience. The bed was not as comfortable as I would have preferred but none the less my stay here was just fine. […] In addition, thes taff were knowledgeable and helpful and I would return to this hotel.

"Great hotel for price!"
Overall I enjoyed my stay here. Extremely modern hotel with quality finishing. My only complaint was that the A/C is my room was particularly weak and I had a trouble sleeping due to this. As far as location is concerned, the hotel is not in the most vibrant area but a convenient one as the Barcelona main train station is situated right on top of the […] hotel, making it extremely easy to commute to the beach, airport, etc. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great central location for sightseeing!"
Great hotel with clean, modern rooms and facilities. On top of the train station but there was no excess noise. The rooms were comfortable and the beds were GREAT! Staff was efficient and helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Loved this silly hotel"
Hotel Barcelo-Sants is silly. It is space-themed. It is above a train station. With that being said, it was the first place we stayed on our Spanish honeymoon and we loved it! We obviously didn't do traditional lay-about-and-hug-each-other or whatever honeymoon, so we didn't live in our hotel room, but it was very nice. A real king size bed (not two […] pushed together!) was a big plus. They had a ton of toiletries-shampoo, soap, razor, lotion, toothpaste, toothbrush, q-tips, makeup sponges, shoe shine- that I really liked. The front desk was a little cold; they just weren't smiley friendly people. I also didn't love the elevators from the train station to the hotel lobby (looked a little sketch). Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is quite modern and is well located if you plan to use the metro. It has a direct train from the airport which we used to get to and from the airport. The L2 and L5 metro lines run below the hotel. So it is convenient to Las Ramblas as well as Plaza Catalunya. Cons: The breakfast buffet was overpriced for the offering. The rooms are modern […] and are comfortable and roomy (for europe!). All in all, if location and conectivity is a priority, then this fits the bill. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good looking, bad access from center."
Hotel looked new and quite comfortable to stay. However, the location was quite far from center of Barcelona. Service at reception was not good. Water in the room smells like chloride.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Clean, Modern, and Convenient Hotel"
The Barceló Hotel Sants is conveniently located within the Barcelona Railway Station. There is no need to take a taxi, or the metro, or walk anywhere to get to your hotel. Once you arrive, you can immediately check in and start exploring the city. The staff speaks English and it is a great hotel especially if you plan to do day trips to places near […] Barcelona like Figueres. The metro station is within the railway station where the hotel is located so there is immediate access to all the attractions in Barcelona through the subway system. The hotel offers a buffet breakfast, free internet, and is smoke free. The rooms are modern and very clean. My wife and I were very pleased with our stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Room wasn't cleaned properly, AC didn't work either. Not up to the standards that I would expect from a Barcelo hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Unfriendly service and hot room"
The reception staff could not be bothered to help us at all. You could not change the temperature of the room, making it quite hot while trying to sleep. Good location, however.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"MODERN HOTEL, QUESTIONABLE LOCATION"
HOTEL IS GREAT. LOCATION, QUESTIONABLE ALTHOUGH IS RIGHT ON TOP OF METRO/TRAIN STATION. NO AIR CONDITIONED OTHER THAN LOBBY OR ROOMS.Genuine Expedia guest review
very convenient for the train and taxis. air conditioning was difficult because it went off every time we were out. The room would then get hot and take a long time to cool off when we got back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"comfortable, spacious, modern room"
overall great hotel. Great service. Staff very friendly and helpful. On top of metro station so very convenient. Easy to get taxis too. Not the greatest location. The room was very comfortable. And we had connecting room for kids.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was nice and the cleaning was good! The control in the air conditioner was horrible since in all the rooms the temperature is automatically set to 21C! I called the from desk every day we were there (one week) for them to please make it 17C in my room. For some reason I thought I was renting the room with any air conditioning I wanted! Wrong! […] Then we were at the bar near the lobby and I ordered a drink and it took over an hour for the bar tender to serve it to me. I complained about the service to someone at the front desk and they kept saying "Sorry". ...I informed her this customer service was unacceptable and told her the bar tender needed more help.

"good for business travelers"
the location of this hotel is excellent, situated over subway, bus and rail services. underneath can also be found a pharmacy, small food shop (no fresh foods) and good cafeteria. one subway takes you directly to placa catalunya, the city center. the hotel theme is based on one that makes the hotel environment rather austere and un-friendly. but the […] front staff is pretty helpful (printing boarding tickets, for example) and the rooms are very clean and the fixtures all high-end. the rooms are small, however, with very little room to set down and open (keep open) luggage. this is a hotel best suited for business travelers, as the bar area is a center of late-night entertainment for enthusiastic business travelers. i didn't see any children at the hotel, besides my own. but the beds were comforatble and we slept well without interruption.

"Journey to Barcelona"
The Hotel was convenient for business andsight seeing. The Hotel staff tried thier best to see we are comfortable. The Hotel is very clean,tidy and noise free. Train station, Taxi stand and the busy shopping areas are within walking distance. The only complaint from me and my wife being vegetarians there was not much of choice . I have no problem to […] recommend this Hotel for any one wanting to visit Barcelona. The hotel cautioned every time when we left the Hotel to keep a hand on the wallet!

"Great location, cool design, good views, value"
My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at the Barcelo Sants. We stayed here after a cruise and had stayed at another hotel before the cruise, and we much preferred this one. The main difference which made us enjoy this hotel more was the location. It was perfect for us. It is right over a large train station, which allows quick access to the subway […] as well as a direct train to the airport. Also both of the city bus tour companies have stops right outside the hotel, and we used this to our advantage well with a two day ticket on one of the tour lines. When leaving we used our T10 subway ticket to use the train to the airport which essentially cost us EUR 1.60. Just a tad bit cheaper than a EUR 30 taxi ride. It is also within walking distance of Placa Espanya, which has the really cool bullring turned into a mall, as well as other cool Barcelona sites. Not much further is the famous "Magic Fountain" in front of the MNAC art museum, which has great shows at night. The lobby and rooms have a very cool modern "space-age" design which my wife and I enjoyed. The room was clean and comfortable, and had a great lighting system which allowed turning everything on and off from the bed (though maybe that is fairly standard in European hotels.) We also had a great view from our floor 7 room, which allowed us to fully enjoy the fact that we were in Barcelona. Lastly the value was very good considering what we got. My only complaint is the entry into the hotel is a little strange. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient location and Clean Rooms"
This hotel is conveniently located above the Barcelona Saints Train Station. I must say, before entering the hotel, I was a bit nervous staying on top of a major train station, but I was pleasantly surprised. The hotel was clean, safe and quiet. The staff was very friendly and the price was unbeatable. There was free Wi-Fi, a great view of the city. […] The rooms were perfect in size and the beds large and comfortable. While not in the heart of Barcelona, it was an easy subway ride (about 10 mins max) to any of the "must see" attractions. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.

"Convenient location by not sylish or inviting"
Hotel had great amenities but location very hard to find by car- good if yuo are traveling by trainGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We stay 5 days before our cruise and 1 day after. We had 2 rooms each time 2 couple in each. The staff are excellen,t bi-lingual with great customer service. Always willing to help you with anything you may need. Specially a girl name Carmen. She made reservation for us at the flamenco show (Carmen at Pueblo Espanol). Got taxi for us to go to the port […] and to go to the airport. Location is great, Hop-on-hop -off right across the street. All buses and trains are right there at the Sant's station and turist information office, Cafeteria, cafe, pharmacy, shops, hair salon. We will recomended highly and would returned without a doubt.

"6 nights at Barcelo Sants"
The hotel is built over the Estacio Sants; when arriving by rain form the airport the pedestrian entrance requires one to walk outside of the station, enter a hotel entrance that is a ramp towards the interior that leads to a pair of mini-elevators and a two-story staircase. We returned exhausted one afternoon to find both elevators out of service. […] I found this a painful experience because of my advanced arthritis in my knees. Over 6 days I never aw a significant variation in the breakfast buffet. The room was clean. The air conditioning was fixed and could not be lowered below 21C. Our king size bed was comfortable.

"Very disappointing stay"
From airport to hotel very easy & accessible. Public transport 6 euros, taxi 38 euros (no-brainer)! Lifts in station & hotel lift access from station, so with luggage, really easy. Would recommend take the train/bus - safe & easy. Check in: Conference Hotel, not best geared for holiday makers. Conference delegates get priority over everything, often […] lots of queues at front desk from delegates. Room: Very open plan, very modern. If you are sharing and want privacy, this will not be for you as the bathroom is integrated into the room. If you like to have your bidet, there are no such facilities. The room has a safe, ironing board, iron, mini bar and tea/coffee making facilities; but we had to remind housekeeping daily to restock tea/coffee and provide cups. The environmental code on towel use applies, but the hotel themselves disregard this by adding new towels daily! The shower was very good though. First night had rough sleep with group of young guests running up and down corridors from 2:30 am til 3:30 am. I phoned down and eventually the noise stopped. I complained and moved to a quiet floor the next day for the rest of the week. The hotel should not book guests who ask for a quiet room near groups of young guests! Gym has restricted hours at weekend and guests have to pay. This is not clear in the hotel info and I was turned away from the gym twice - very embarrassing! Breakfast for 15 euros v poor standard & choice options. V disappointing hotel choice! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Location, location, location"
Great location. The hotel, while a little quirky, was a great home base for exploring Barcelona. My husband and I felt comfortable in both the hotel and surrounding neighborhood. It couldn't have been easier to get to the hotel with both trains and metro just downstairs. Other perks included a nearby grocery store and pharmacy.Genuine Expedia guest review
Good location, especially if you going to the airport early in the morning. First train to the airport is at 5:13 am. Cost - 2 euro. It took us about 25 min leisurely walk to the Plaza Hispania - major tourist attraction. Also easy rides from the metro (subway) just below the hotel to about any place in the city. Purchase T10 ticket. It will save you […] about 50% from the Metro or Bus rides. Do not purchase a breakfast option. You much better off to get your breakfast from any eatery just outside the hotel for much less $$. Very clean room. Iron, fridge and safe in the room. Good comfortable bedding. If you do not have computer with you, ask the front desk to print your airline tickets. Customer service is very accommodating.Enjoy Barcelona! May 2012.

"Easiest hotel for business in Barcelona"
Excellent hotel. Was doing renovations at the lobby at the time, but that did not make checking in, or getting around uncomfortable at all. The hotel is right in the Sants train station and getting around was incredibly easy. Fast and free internet, easy check in/check out, and at a good price. Also, I had a problem with my reservation, but the hotel […] and the rep at Hotels.com (her name was Jace) was AMAZINGLY quick, understanding, and competent in getting my reservation switched with no fees.

"Excellent location, close to all must-see sights"
Very satisfied with the hotel: very helpful & accommodating staff, perfect location, the sound proof inside the hotel between the rooms could be better but outside noise was completely blocked. One of the elevators was not working during my stay but it was a temporary problem. Will choose this hotel again for my next trip to Barcelona.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good hotel with a couple of disappointments"
Overall nice stay with two issues: 1) access was very, very poor as they only had two small elevators (one was down) and stairs! Very inconvenient. Also 2) if you are into fitness please realize the fitness center is NOT part of the hotel and requires a daily payment of an additional 10 euros. Also the fitness center, as an independent business, was […] closed on holidays...... Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Nice hotel. good location right on top of station for trains and subway. Hop on off bus stop is across the street past the taxi stand. Neighborhood is OK, has a supermarket close by.
