“Plush and nice location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Set nicely by the beach and close enough to walk to the Ramblas, we found the Pullman to be an all round wonderful hotel. Reception and restaurant staff were extremely helpful, super choice for breakfast, and spacious rooms contributed to an all round positive experience. The bathrooms gets a big 'WOW' too. One of the hop on hop off tour buses stops just a few hudred yards away. Walk towards the beach (more or less at the back of the hotel) and there are restaurants and shops alongside a very picturesque harbour. I have stayed in the Monjuic area a few times and really enjoyed it, but here, you have the best of Barcelona at your feet.

this is the perfect choice for a stay in Barcelona; by the beach yet a short ride into the centre of barcelona.the staff are friendly and can give lots of advice on where to go and what to see. our room was clean, modern, big comfortable bed and really quiet for a good nights sleep.the breakfast is fantastic fresh fruit, cheese and cold meats, as well as cooked breakfast with sausage eggs and bacon in a bright sunny room looking out over the deck and outdoor pool. Theres a great pool on the roof with fantastic views over the sea...
just around the corner you can catch the open top tour bus for a great ride around all the main attractions, make sure you visit the parc guell to see the amazing gaudi creations. its a great place to have a picnic and take in fantastic views of the city.
there are so many tapas bars and restaurants to visit and dont miss the food market off the ramblas. there are so many brilliant sights to see, i cannot wait to go back We would definitely recommend the hotel and the city as a must see city break.

came with a friend for the weekend and it was fantastic. they even left her a bottle of champagne on the house for her birthday. we were given a smoking room at first and it smelt of cigarettes, neither of us smoke so we asked to change rooms, that was done with out hassle.
friendly staff, good location next to all the clubs and the beach is just round the corner.
pool on the terraces was lovely.

Stayed with my Brother for three night mini-break. Good hotel, geared towards business travellers however this does not impact heavily on hotel service levels, which are good. As most other reviewers have said before, the location is great for the Olympic Port and Beach and its 25 minutes walk to the start of Las Ramblas. Rooms are nicely furnished, no Music Dock which I missed. Breakfast is fine...stick with continental as they still don't so sausage or bacon very well. Best thing: The staff are excellent. Worst thing: Noisy if you get a room overlooking the main Avenue Litoral. Would go back.

Room Tip: Get a room overlooking the port.

We stayed here in September 2012, very clean, great choice at breakfast, ideally located for the beach, 15 - 20 minute walk to the city. You can easily get sightseeing bus from a two minute walk for the green line. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel. The receptionist was very helpful as were all of the staff.

Room Tip: Ask for a seaview room, these are limited.

We had a great stay at the Pullman, it's virtually located on the beach with plenty of great restaurants within a 5 min walk. While it's not right on the centre there is a metro station near by.

Breakfast is served until late which is handy if you've had a late night/ early morning in the clubs and casino which are right on the doorstep.

There's a great pool terrace with fantastic views of the beach.

Pleasant check in experience. Quick, efficient, and helpful.

The room we stayed in was a somewhat larger European size room. Bed was comfortable, soft and firm pillows. Internet was reasonably fast (2.5 Mbps) - access was provided for each device. The room was welcomingly warm ( cold the week we stayed). Nice benefit was that the window opened fully. The shower was a good size, water pressure was okay. Double sink which we liked.

The breakfast buffet was good to very good. Decent selection of fruits, meats, breads, and cereals. My wife thought it was too pork centric.

The "gym" really isn't worth mentioning. Either bring your TRX bands or just assume you won't be working out. The beach offers an excellent run.

The restaurant was decent - food and service were good.

Area is light on services, lots of restaurants along water. Quality can be spotty so be sure to check Trip Advisor before you eat. :)

The Metro is about a 5 min walk away and a 7-8 Euro taxi ride to city.

Safe travels.

Room Tip: Upper floor, beach side, was quiet.
