“Very comfortable hotel in a great location.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

The hotel is excellently placed close to the Arts Hotel, within a few minutes walk of a Metro stop, the beachfront and the round Barcelona tour bus stop. There seemed to be plenty of staff and they were all very helpful. We had a balcony room with a view over the pool to the sea, the sunrises and sunsets were wonderful to watch, and the bed was one of the most comfortable we have had in a hotel.
It is worth considering a bed and breakfast rate as the breakfast buffet is first rate, but expensive if you pay at the hotel.
We were on the sixth floor and had no problems with the wifi connection,in our room, although other guests we spoke to had had some connectivity issues.
As other guests have mentioned the air con does not seem to get the rooms very cool, although as we were travelling at the end of September this was not a major issue.

Thieves! Terrible!

We paid our bill in cash for charges before we left. One month later we got our credit card bill. To find, they had charged us again! Because we had lunch & drinks charges, this was £131! A lot to be double charged for. It's not normal for us to keep hotel receipts for this long. They would not reimburse us! Very very annoyed. We asked them to check their till & CCTV. Not heard back. Feel robbed.

Room Tip: Keep receipts!

The start of our stay were not very promising, we had to wait one hour to get our room. But except for this we were very pleased with our stay. Room was spacious with nice design, and was well equipped.
We missed vegetables and salads at the breakfast buffet, but on the other hand there were wines and champagne free of charge for anyone who wanted an early start.
From the hotel you can walk along the beach in two directions, and if you prefer the pool there are two at the hotel. We mainly used the roof pool, big and deep enough for swimming, and with plenty sunbeds and a nice bar.
If you want to explore the city you will find the city guide buses five minutes walk from the hotel.

I researched hotels on the internet for literally weeks!! Knowing very little about Barcelona, I quickly came to realize that I did not want to have our hotel in the bustling, busy downtown area. Thanks to several reviewers, I decided on a hotel away from the city center and on the waterfront!! For once in my life , I made the perfect decision!! Pullman Barcelona Skipper was close to many cafes and the local city bus tour stops (which seemed 'touristy' but was a great way to scope out the city) and was so close to the beaches! Our view of the beautiful pool area (rare in Barcelona) and the copper whale was magnificent! The room was spacious, comtemporary, clean with a very nice bathroom. The staff was helpful and everyone we encountered spoke perfect English. The breakfast buffet was a 5 star, much better than the average 'bfast included' hotels is America. It was included with our reservation but I dont know if that is customary. Lastly, I had requested a nice view bc we were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary which they certainly provided AND on our last night there, surprised us with champagne, chocolates and our bed covered in rose petals!!!!! I absolutely loved this hotel!!! We loved Barcelona and had a fabulous cruise on the NCL Epic ship. So blessed by the Lord Jesus and thanks to Him for sustaining us and praying for 25 more years of marriage!!!

Breakfast is excellent with a range of hot and cold food . Room was spotless, though on the small side, but no problem. Handy for the beach and beach bars. Rooftop pool and bar is lovely. The bus to the centre of town stops right outside.
