This hotel is by far the best hotel I've ever stayed in. The service was impeccable, from the bellmen to the front desk, all the way to the pool servers and the Bliss spa. I was in heaven. We had a room on the 21st floor overlooking the Mediterranean. We'd press the automatic shade button every morning and the curtains... More

This is a hotel in which being "seen" is more important than everything else. Put together. I could pontificate for hours but suffice to say the hotel's self appointed position as "the" guru on Barcelona sums it up. The list of gripes is extensive. This hotel rejoices in charging $24 for a cup of hot chocolate, pronouncing that there is... More

Very cool hotel right on the beach, amazing views and rooms, very helpful staff (eg brought a coffee machine to my room, free of charge), great location in terms of access to the beach. Great breakfast. Will definitely stay here again on next trip to Barcelona.

Location is what it is - near the beach, but pretty distant from everything else. Booked a sea view room, but was on the 3rd floor, with a concrete roof just out our window. Disappointing. The rest was fantastic. Room was a little different than usual, with the bathroom literally in the room. Bar, breakfast, and restaurant were all fantastic.... More

We were greeted with great service once we stepped out of the taxi and this continued for another 4 days. The location was excellent being right on the beach and there were many activities to take in as the hotel seemed to be a hub for what's hot in Barcelona. We didn't wander around too much since I had my... More

The architecture of the building is amazing. The lobby very well laid out with a modern vibe. The room was unique with the bed in the middle of the room. And the view! Ocean, harbor some city lights with the cruise ships coming in and out. Property is located out on the peninsula so it is a little away from... More

The staff at the hotel are great. The front desk staff, bar staff, and pool servers are excellent. Kind, friendly, English speaking, just wonderful. That goes for the manager at the Eclipse bar. We had a bit of a problem with bartender and he more than made it right. Emily at the pool was also amazing. The concierge staff was... More

We arrived with our car; very friendly valet. Reception more like a fast moving 4 star ibis hotel; just want to move fast. Hallways very strange lightning. Rooms have a very nice view; yet the bathroom and shower is being separated with a glass door so you can hear all noises with details. Breakfast is terrible. Variety low. Staff make... More

Staying in Barceloneta

Neighborhood Profile
Barceloneta
Originally a fisherman’s quarter, this quaint area can’t escape its small village feel: laundry hanging over the narrow streets, old ladies clamoring at each other from their balconies and elder gentlemen playing games on short wooden benches gossiping the day away, Barceloneta could double as a film set. Artists line the boardwalk displaying their magnificently detailed sand structures making this the most visited beach in the city (the shirtless men working out might help too). You’ll know by the delicious aroma that you're in the right place to try some of the best and most authentic seafood including paella, Spain’s national dish.
