Exceptionally good stay. It was a true 5-star experience. Big Rooms (more than European standard), wide restaurant Menu, relaxed stay and quick service. Calm location though slightly far from city centre shopping areas like Rambla's.

In nutshell, 5-star Experience.

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking time to share your feedback. We are very pleased that you enjoyed our lobby and relaxing spa facilities. However, we regret to hear that you were not entirely pleased with your room arrangements. We assure you that all of our rooms are of the same standard. The views may be different, as we have some rooms facing the city and others facing the mountain. Regarding breakfast, we would like to point out that we propose a new specialty each day. In addition to the buffet, guests are also able to order items from a special menu. We hope to see you again in the future. Best regards, Octavio Gamarra, General Manager

The Fairmont is located between the airport and the city and is a conference center. But despite its size, all is just perfect : rooms are at the level of the brand; service is perfect; the overall atmosphere is very professional and quiet. Nice view on the city. Really nothin

Hi! We read that the hotel is being renovated. Until when is the hotel renovating? And we also read that there are a lot of problems with the airco. Is this already being fixed? Thank you in advance for answering our questions :)
We were there in early July and I asked specifically for a renovated room, and was told thankfully all their rooms had been updated. The carpet smelled and looked brand new. Our Air conditioning was prob the best of any hotel I’ve stayed in. Silent and cold :)

We are wanting to use the metro to get from El Prat airport to the hotel - can anyone tell me which lines we use and which is the nearest stop to the hotel ? Thanks
Google Barcelona subway journey planner . you want to end up at Zona University (English spelling) which is the intersection of L3 and L9. you can get there on L9 without changing trains. the hotel is a short walk (5 to 10 minutes or about 2 blocks) from the station
