In September, prior to our cruise, we decided to spend a few days in Barcelona. After doing my own research, we decided to stay at the Silken Diagonal in the Gothic area of Barcelona. This hotel is found in a very good location - close to the metro and several important sights i.e. La Familia Sagrada. It was in a... More

I visited the hotel for business, and consider it a convienient and affordable option. The rooms are efficient, but not to be shared by two persons unless they are very comfortable with each other due to glass showers. The hotel offers free wifi for as many devices as you like, the breakfast is great, and the staff is continuously helpful.... More

It's located in the centre of the city geographically but is outside of the historic old city yet not too far from the sagrada familia and close to a big shopping centre so a pretty good location. The hotel is really clean and beautiful with very modern rooms and massive floor to ceiling windows with electrically operated blinds which are... More

Located near the centre but not actually within walking distance of the main shopping and tourist areas. The hotel is aiming for the boutique/trendy style, which for some reason means the hotel is light very dimly, lots of blue lights making the corridors very dark. The room was clean and functional, the chair fabric was a little worn but overall... More

The hotel is close to the metro station and in a few minutes you can get the Rambla. We arrived early in the morning and our room was ready; check out in the afternoon. The hotel is elegant and clean, nice place for holidays but also for business.

This has to be the worst sound-proofed hotel ever! I constantly heard door shutting and the blinds being mechanically opened and closed and the cleaners were incredibly noisy cleaning. I find it really annoying when hotels don't leave a complimentary water for guest. Final moan.. the wifi was awful! You couldn't have different devices switched on and I ended up... More

I enjoyed my stay here for a business conference. PROs: stilish hotel, close to the metro, shopping center and rambla de pobleneu(many restaurants etc). big glass window to the outside, and also on the inside (bathroom) so the room feels light and spacious. comfortable bed. breakfast buffet is abundant, but quite standard. CONs: very flat pillow, smallish old tv (not... More

This is a very good hotel. It is located near everything, close to Placa Catalunya and Rambla, close to Barceloneta and the Marina. Near the hotel is an small shopping center with a few restaurants. I recomend it. My stay here was amaizing.

I reviewed the Silken Hotel Diagonal in late October after my stay there 11-14 September. In that review I noted the deficiences in the room and left a written evaluation when I left. The hotel management acted on my evaluation which came to their attention before my TripAdvisor commentary in late October. The hotel refunded half of my room rent... More

Staying in Poblenou

Neighborhood Profile
Poblenou
The futuristic Agbar Tower stands out from Barcelona's skyline in Poblenou. It is no coincidence then that this area of town is the newly crowned technological park of the city, its own mini Silicon Valley containing a tech incubator (Barcelona Activa) as well as a host of local and international high tech companies. To accommodate the onrush of new residents and workers, the area of Poblenou has seen a surge of activity in new high-rise residential buildings and two top-notch shopping centers catering to everyone's need. The ambiance of this area is calmer than the city center and the beautifully relaxing Bogatell Beach, popular with locals, is just a handful of blocks away.
