“Silken Diagonal Barcelona”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

We loved the Silken Diagonal. It is a new, design hotel with very exquisite furniture. The bathroom and the sleeping room are separated by a moving wall, thus exposing the bathroom :-). From the roof you can enjoy the majestic view over some touristic landmarks in Barcelona like Torre Agbar (which is like 50mt away from it, or Sagrada Familia). The hotel is located a bit off the whole crowded streets of the city center, but still not far away for a walk to La Rambla (ca. 20 mins walking) and like 5 mins walking from the Metro Station Glòrias (L1 really central). Waterfront and Barcelonetta are around 20-30 mins walk and Sagrada Familia Cathedral maybe 15 mins.

Absolutely recommended.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

So I was going back and forth between 3 and 4 stars for this hotel. I ended up going with 4, as it really is a lovely hotel. My only complaint is that the bathroom was glass on three sides. This can be awkward if you are traveling with a friend. There was nowhere to hang curtains if you wish to have more privacy.

Ok that was the bad. The good-excellent location, fair price, wonderful food.

The hotel is one block from the metro stop, which makes getting around to all the attractions very easy. The hotel is across the street from an outdoor mall. My friend and I hit the mall for morning coffee and cheap dinners. We were on a budget and couldn't afford the fancy Spanish dinners. The mall has several reasonable choices for dinner.

The last night we had an early morning flight, so we opted to eat at the hotel. The sangria was amazing and the food was even better!! For a very reasonable price (~15€) we had a meal and drinks. Not bad for a hotel.

The hotel is very wonderful, but please be aware that your bathroom could be glass.

Stayed October 2012, traveled with friends

Actually, there is nothing extraordinary to highlight at this hotel but the modern design, if you care about. But the fact that the room as well as the service were absolutely flawless makes it one of my favorite hotels in Barcelona. We booked well in advance and got a really nice rate considering the location and category.

The pool on the roof is a real highlight! From there you can enjoy the majestic view over some touristic landmarks in Barcelona like Torre Agbar or Sagrada Familia...

The hotel is located a bit off the whole crowded streets of the city center, but still not far away for a walk to La Rambla (ca. 40 mins). If you are not a fan of walks, the Metro Station Glorias is just a couple of steps away from the hotel.

Waterfront and Barcelonetta are around 20-30 mins walk and Sagrada Familia Cathedral maybe 15 mins.

When the next time in Barcelona, we will definitely stay again with Silken Diagonal!!!

Very good position, excellent food and service at the restaurant and for breakfast, perfect staff.
Only drawback was the room a bit noisy (819) due some water running all the night.
Furniture is starting to show some age, but the overall evaluation is very good.

I strongly advice high level floors to fully appreciate the city view.

Room Tip: ask for a room in 7+ floor, view is fantastic.
