Breakfast was great with a choice of both traditional English cooked or continental whilst hotel's restaurant has a very good service, great selection and decently priced. Rooms are very clean and Housekeeping staff really go the extra... More

The hotel is listed as a 4 star hotel, but that must be on paper. Have a pool and other facilities, but..... The elevator system is poor and you have to expect a long wait in the morning and afternoon. The breakfast was surved in a conferance room in the basement. Paper cups and low quality on the food.

We stayed at this hotel in April 2014 for 5 nights. Staff was helpful and the language barrier was never an issue. We ate in the restaurant twice for dinner very well priced and good selection. The 19th floor bar is excellent and worth the trip in the lift. We were on the 18th floor so the trip was short.... More

I arrived at Novotel Barcelona City and found that some of the staff at the front desk was rude. I ignored this at first. It was after I asked about an event at the hotel, I felt that they continued audacity. It was my daughter who wanted to watch this show and the behavior of each employee at the front... More

Having been to Barcelona many times--and having always stayed around the Bari Gotica part of town--I decided to try something a bit different this time. I'm an Accor frequent guest member, and there's lots of properties from which to choose in BCN. I chose this one because it's on the main métro line, only a few minutes from the Plaças... More

Only negative is pool is freezing, milk in breakfast buffet is warm and taxis bookings were not on time (this may not be hotel fault though). All in all we would recommend to others for a... More
