and Fira Gran Via convention centre
The Gran Via exhibition area is just outside the city centre in a suburb of Barcelona. The exhibition centre is excellent, but apart from shopping malls, there are few attractions in this industrial area, so many visitors also choose to stay in Barcelona. But there are an increasing number of new and modern hotels very close to the Gran Via exhibition centre, which you can find on the links below. The Gran Via exhibition centre is close to the city centre by train or taxi, so you can also choose hotels in the centre of Barcelona.
If you plan to go by public transport to the Gran Via exhibition area, but prefer to stay in Barcelona city centre, then you might want to consider booking hotels close to the street Gran Via in Barcelona. If you are close to the Gran Via street, then you can take the L1 red metro line to Plaza Espanya and from the Plaza Espanya metro station you change on the same ticket to the FGC train to get to the FGC station Europa Fira, which is the closest to the Gran Via exhibition area.
