The Crowne Plaza Barcelona Fira Center is located in the heart of Montjuïc, at the junction of the famous calle Gran Vía and Plaza España, just 5 minutes walk from the train station and 25 minutes drive from the airport. Thanks to its proximity to some of the main tourist attractions and businesses - Fira Barcelona, the Magic Fountain, the gardens of Montjuic, The Ramblas ... - its location in Barcelona is unbeatable. Guests have easy access to anywhere in the city, thanks to the underground and tourist bus located only a few metres away. The new shopping and entertainment centre "Las Arenas", built in a former bullring, is very close and highly recommended for the enjoyment of the guests.
