Very helpful and pleasant staff, good location and transport correspondance. Clean and comfortable room. Everything OK. Very good area of relax (swimming pool and gym) and the restaurant. We enjoyed our stay a lot. Will repeat when in Barcelona.

I struggled to give it a 4. But opted to as the hotel and it's staff do so much to help it score. After night one of a three night business trip. There are some things for sure. The location is not great if what you want is to see Barcelona on foot! It's pretty much in the middle if... More

Located in an area of the city where only Catalan seemed to be spoken. Nice neighbourhood though. Standard business hotel with good wifi and TV although no Sky News. Staff friendly. Food not brilliant and hot water radiators were not working in the rooms. Heating worked only too well Some repairs needed but room was large enough and clean. Reasonable... More

Stayed here mid Nov 2015. Hotels nearer to CCIB conference centre were all full, so company booked this one. Taxi ride to CCIB is approx €6 to €7. Didn't eat or drink here so cannot help readers with that aspect of the hotel, but I can say that the accommodation was totally fine. I did notice that, as in many... More

Clean standard rooms with all required facilities for a business trip. Friendly staff at the reception ready to help. Food is ok but do not expect anything special. Breakfast is ok except the coffee which is not great for Spanish standards

I stayed at the Icaria hotel for 2 nights in November and I was quite underwhelmed. The hotel is really without much character, the rooms are average, but comfortable nonetheless. I had some problems with the air conditionning (working despite the room being quite cold already). The reception is okay, breakfast the same. Not ideally placed to explore Barcelona, in... More

We stayed here because it was close to our sons apartment he would be moving into. It is not in the "heart" of old barcelona, but its across the street from the beach area and a quick cab or bus to Las Ramblas.

We arrived mid morning and was able to leave our luggage after freshening up. We took a 5 minute walk to the beach and walked along the promenade to the old town area. After a tapas lunch we returned to check in to our well appointed 5th floor room with a view. The hotel has a bus stop and taxi... More

Staying in Ciutadella / Vila Olimpica

Neighborhood Profile
Ciutadella / Vila Olimpica
The sounds of Marina Olympica's rocking boats and clicking mastheads swaying to and fro set an impressive backdrop for Ciutadella and Villa Olimpica. Follow the aromas of garlic, wine, and fresh local fish to the various restaurants running along the marina. A grand bronze fish statue soaring high above serves as a beacon to those searching for the renowned Casino Barcelona or the extremely popular nightclubs which practically lie on the beach itself.
