Perfect location, nice beach and running spots around, sub will bring you to the historical center in 20-25 min. Though there are many families with kids I would recommend it for the active friends' vacation. Bonus-pool at the 14th (?) floor with a nice view on the city.

I arrived here today and having problems since the minute I arrived here. Rooms and bathrooms not clean too. I found hair from previous people. Window doesn't close, I can hear the noisy outside and cigarettes smoke from neighbours. Only two towels in the room and no towels for swimming pool use. This hotel is not worth the money and...

My partner and I stayed at this hotel in August 2015 for 5 night and really enjoyed it. The room was lovely and clean and the beds were so comfy! Breakfast was included in our package and was also very good with lots of variety. One of the things we really loved was the roof top pool which boasts stunning... More

Amazing hotel with great facilities and exceptional service. The staff were great, especially Sylvia the supervisor and Olio at reception, who made our stay a memorable one. Great outdoor pool with a bar that overlooks the sea, jacuzzi, sauna and steam rooms were good too. Opposite the hotel is Diagonal Mar, with plenty of shops and a variety of restaurants... More

Good location for beach, tourist bus, metro and Diagonal Mar shopping centre with several restaurants. Need to use metro to get to town centre but you need to use the bus or the metro to get to most tourist attractions anyway. Lovely beds and pillows / clean and efficient bathrooms / efficient air con. Front city view wonderful. Rear beach... More

A two night stay in this hotel turned into an absolute and utter nightmare. the summary of our stay in this hotel is that - as a conference friendly hotel - conferences are all they care about - because they drive numbers,If it would appear that their numbers are inflated enough then they would be considered to be a success....

The hotel is part of the Marriott group so to be honest the place is in good shape. The staff is really helpful and attentive. The food is okay to be honest room service and even the breakfast buffet but its not a problem since the hotel is just across the mall and you can find all kind of restaurants... More
