Loved this hotel. standard room had high ceilings, really cool decor and was spotlessly clean. Location was fantastic for the metro stations, close to the ramblas and shopping district. Easy to get the train from the airport, to this hotel. Staff were helpful and friendly.

Modern hotel just off Passeig de Garcia, walking distance from RENFE airport train stop in a nice upscale neighborhood. Our room was on the 5th floor or Club Floor and was nicely appointed but the climate control was not functioning properly. We were only in the hotel overnight pre-cruise but had a quiet restful stay.

The hotel is very well located, in a safe neighbourhood, walking distance from restaurants and the infamous Las Ramblas shopping district. We arrived quite late at night and it was a bit hectic trying to find out how to get into the underground parking. Once we figured that out we had to deal with the most narrow and inconveniently shaped... More

The Grand Silken hotel has an excellent location, within easy walking distance of Las Ramblas and the Gothic Quarter. If you want to go further there is a metro station around the corner, and the Barceloneta and Sagra Familia and Park Guell are all just a couple of stops away. The hotel is very smart and the room very comfortable.... More
