I chose this hotel for its convenience to IESE business school and location in an upscale neighborhood in Barcelona. It is an easy taxi drive to the center of the city along Avenida Diagonal. The gardens and hotel facilities are excellent as is the service. Recommended whether for business or leisure .

Incredible inefficiency at the check in. I had to wait 20 min to get my room's key at 8pm. Room was great and very well renovated. Internet connection at some point of the night went off with no solution... this is a Fairmont hotel and everything should be perfect...

I have stayed in Barcelona several times before, this was my first time at the Fairmont. The Front Desk Agent, Jonathan went above and beyond to cater to my wants and needs. I am extremely impressed with my experience and will be booking here again!

The Fairmont Rey Juan Carlos is a fantastic hotel with great facilities, it is on the outskirts of Barcelona but it is very accessible to get into the centre of Barcelona by the subway or by taxi. The hotel has great facilities.

This is a lovely hotel for business travel or conferences - but just too far removed for vacation travel. We stayed 3 nights and, although it is close to a subway line, it was just too far away from the action. The restaurants nearby are quite a hike and few and far in between. The rooms are large with incredible... More

Would I stay here for a holiday in Barcelona? No. Is this an excellent hotel? Yes. The Fairmont is a very good hotel. Just happens to be way out of town.
