I checked out of this hotel earlier today after staying four nights for a business trip. I chose this hotel because it was within walking distance of the conference center, and I got a great price on an ocean-view room. I arrived around 9:45am assuming I'd have to wait hours for my room. The staff was very polite and gave... More

Rooms with a sea view are also overlooking the 6 lane ring road, so noisy. Turning on the "air conditioning" to cool the room down without opening the window might be a problem, as although the instructions suggest the AC will cool the room, it actually heats it up .... so, then you have to open the window and put...

Lovely walk along promenade and beach into Barcelona centre is recommended. Staff very friendly and helpful. Food is good and hotel is clean with some refurbishment going on in the bar area. When finished it should be very good - but was a bit strange to have no-one at all in the temporary bar when you are on holidays in... More

I work in Barcelona several times a year and sadly find the crime is getting worse. The hotel is pleasant with reasonable sized bedrooms and bathrooms. It is a 15 minute walk to the CCIB conference centre which is opposite a vast shopping centre. It is a taxi ride to the Ramblas and traffic in Barcelona can be dreadful so... More

Excellent room, spacious and clear view of the beach. Very well kept premises. Staff was very helpful with directions and service especially assistance in tracking our lost luggage. Did have an issue with the bar in the lobby, staff could not mix a decent drink!

We have just returned from a Barcelona city break and stayed at the Barcelo Atenea Mar. The rooms were spotlessly clean and cleaned every morning. The breakfasts were delicious with a good variety to suit every taste. We even had champagne 2 mornings. The times were good too with breakfast from 7.00 to 10.30. The reception staff were so helpful... More

Barcelo Atenea Mar is in a great location, away from the hustle and bustle of the centre and, although not on the beach, overlooking the beach. The staff were professional but friendly and our room was lovely, spotlessly clean, classy and very comfortable. The breakfasts were delicious, with lots of choice.

Clean modern hotel with good sized rooms and nice fixtures and fittings. On the beach, which was lovely. But maybe a little far out if you intend to spend your time in the heart of the city. The bus stop, on a main route, is just around the corner and the metro is about 10 minutes away. So if you... More

The sewer smell is to due to something downwind, so comes and goes. Leave a door card in the room if you want cool air when you get back. Book dinner as tour groups get priority. Noisy if facing road.
