Great location for city and for beach. Away from the noise of the city. Spacious rooms and we asked for a double and a twin room nearby one another, and were given exactly that- placed at end corridor which was perfect. Friendly, helpful staff. Pool for relaxation. Used room service because of a thunderstorm and rather than go to restaurant-... More

Great location. H16 bus (all wheelchair accessible) at the front door every 15 mins will take you very close to most places of interest, including the Magic Fountains across town. Beach, supermarket, great (and very reasonable) cafes, restaurants and fast food eateries, plus wheelchair accessible hop on/off tour bus 5 minutes walk away. As soon as you reach the beach... More

This hotel is a decent hotel in walking distance to the beach and the Port where many of the restaurants and bars are. It is however quite convenience and relatively quick to get into the City Centre via public transport. The hotel itself is decent one and just seems to get on with things. I do agree that there is...

Lovely clean hotel with great facilities and friendly helpful staff. Breakfast was good value with plenty of choice. We decided to stay here for 1 night only and the location was excellent as only a few minutes from the beach and not far to the bus stop for the open top tour of Barcelona.

This hotel whilst near the beach, lacks any atmosphere. The service is pretty poor and there is clearly a very relaxed and slap dash attitude here! The advantage to this is you can pay for room only ans still go into breakfast without anyone caring much meaning you don't need to pay your €14 for breakfast which is ok, however... More

This made an ideal base for our city break. 5 minute walk from beach and restaurants and 10 minutes from Metro station so easy access into the city centre. Room was clean and serviceable which was good for us as we were out more often than not. Reasonable value. Bar service could be a bit slow.

Hotel is located within a walking distance to the beach, city center (if 3km is too much for you – there is subway around the corner). The facility is new, with clean and quiet rooms. There is swimming pool and garage for your convenience. Wi-Fi is free and works OK. Staff is friendly, although some of them have problems with... More

We stayed here for two days after a beach holiday at the costa brava. Hotel is good. Also for the children as it has a pool and it is only a Seven minutes walk to the beach. Taxi stand next to the hotels ensured a first swing into the city centre in which we used the subway to do the... More

Maybe its the red laqueresque details that threw me for a loop, but this hotel has a retro 80's feel to it, especially with the white leather seating in the lobby, which is spacious, and they have a sweet little bar in the back that you can Cava yourself to death at. The rooms are clean and modern, and super... 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.
