“Nice Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

Lovely hotel quite a way out from the main town but we knew this from reading other reviews.This was not a problem as the hotel provide a courtesy bus a few times a day and the metro is just across the road.On arriving we we greeted by a very pleasant lady whose attitude changed when we decided not to take her offer of an upgrade as we knew we would not be spending much time in the room. The standard room was more than adequate,lovely bathroom which takes a bit of getting used to as there are mirrors everywhere. There is a lovely cafe around the back of the hotel called 365 which sells lovely fresh rolls cakes and do a lovely coffee for a few euros also in same area are a few local bars.Make sure you check your bill daily (which can do on the television in your room ) as someone put two breakfasts 48 euros on our room an our last day,when my husband queried this with the lady on reception she said we must have had breakfast and walked out without signing for it which would have been impossible as we never had breakfast in the hotel all the time we stayed as we used the 365 cafe. It was quite embarrasing as she obviously did not believe us.The hotel should change there policy and make people sign before they have their breakfast. They did take it off the bill but it did spoil the end of a lovely holiday

Room Tip: If you intend staying in your room go for the upgrade if not standard rooms are fine.An upgrade is 6...

We stayed here a couple of nights leading up to our Mediterranean cruise with MSC, hoping to explore Barcelona a bit. What a great hotel. The building itself is a work of art. We were warmly greeted and checked in with no difficulty.

Even though there are only 4 elevators for highrise building, we never waited much for one to arrive. You enter your desired floor at a console in the elevator lobby, and it tells you which one to go to. This works very efficiently!

As you rise, you experience the reveal of the city that is a rapid ascent to your room floor.

The rooms themselves are spotless, quiet, and adorned with high-quality finishes and modern decor. The bathroom was luxurious, finished in dark, highly polished onyx-type stone, and walk in shower. Great water pressure and lots of hot water available. The toilet was contained in a separate frosted glass room, with accent lighting. The only minus I might say is closet space, there isn't a ton of it, but it's adequate.

The restaurant on the 3rd floor was what one would expect in a 4 or 5 star hotel, with the price to match. Excellent selection of wines. Didn't make it to the restaurant at the top unfortunately, as it was not open at the times we wanted.

The hotel is very close to the public transit subway/metro, giving ready access to nightlife and sights. As well, not too far from the airport, which is convenient.

I would definitely stay here again, especially if I can get a preferred rate like we did when we came.

Room Tip: High floor for the awesome views of the city. If they offer you the upgrade at checkin to the two s...

We stayed at the Hesperia tower last year and we were very impressed with the hotel, staff, price, etc...Definitly a great place to stay in Barcelona. The only inconvenience is the location. It is far from the downtown area but across the street from the line 1 metro station. We are going back to Barcelona this November and we are looking forward to a great stay with them once again..

We stayed at this property on 2 seperate occasions during our trip to Spain, the location is easy to get to from the airport and has close access to the Metro line, but it is a long way from downtown though. We really enjoyed the rooms, they were clean, spacious and luxurious. Breakfast was great, and at a discount if you Pre pay at the front desk. Our only complaint was the hand towel rack fell off and landed on my girlfriends foot, at first we weren't sure if it broke her foot or not, it was incredibly heavy. We called front desk and they eventually sent ice and offered a doctor and visit to the hospital. We were flying home the next morning and after awhile she felt that it wasn't probably broken, just deeply bruised. The next morning, at checkout I brought the piece of metal to checkout with me and the manager apologized, and paid for our breakfast, I wasn't expecting a free stay but €30 which ended up causing huge problems and the use of a wheelchair on the long trip home, was a little less than what should have been done, anyways, don't stand under the towel rack as you brush your teeth.

Room Tip: Ask for a view towards the city on a higher floor.

Had a wonderful stay here, and I decided to upgrade to the Duplex rooms. Well it was well worth it! Room on 2 floors, with Jacuzzi, lounge, 2 tv's, sound system, panoramic view over barcelona, king sized bed, all the comforts you can think of. And the lounge was awesome as well, nice drinks, and atmosphere. Will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Upgrade to duplex if given the opportunity, it's SO worth it.

We stayed here for 4 nights on a good deal with free Parking, Wifi and Breakfast which made the price very inviting.
The hotel is quite new and is situated 300 meters from the end of the L1 metro line so only a couple of Euros and you are in the town center.
Good room, very good bed and maid service with very helpful staff. Excellent breakfast with everything you could possibly need.
Don't be put off by the location it saves you dragging your case around the city (which you see a lot) and the extra cost of parking you car if you are driving.
They also have a shuttle but to and from the Airport so no excuse not to give them a try.
Like me you will be impressed

Room Tip: you can get great views from the higher floors so see if you can get further up the tower

I think everything was outstanding. The service of the Bell Hop who greeted us at the car, the room, the elevators, the wisdom and service of the front desk who gave us sound advice, and even the shuttle driver to the airport. Listen, we were SUPER bummed that the restaurant upstairs was closed (was this because there was an August holiday in motion, or are they simply struggling financially?), but I thought this place was outstanding regardless.
