“FABULOUS HOTEL!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

This is really a superb five star hotel with a practical location between the airport and the city centre of Barcelona. I had a lovely room with a wonderful bed from which there was a stunning view of the city. My bathroom was fabulous. The breakfast is really excellent!

The location was not a problem as there is a subway station close by the hotel with a direct connection to central parts of the city.

Room Tip: Try to get a room as high up as possible,

Beautiful hotel... Top notch everything from the reception, rooms, dining, breakfast.... The lot. You won't be disappointed with this hotel.... However the location isn't great but a train or bus from right outside will take you to the centre in about 25 mins... This is the only downside. There is not much at all around this hotel. Do not let this put you off though as everything isn't far away and it is away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre and off pick pockets. Lol x

Room Tip: Upgrades available with stunning views... We were on the top floor. Not ideal if you don't like...

We had booked a suite, but somehow the reception didn't really believe my wife, when she showed up together with our son (she looks kind of nice, though). A strange and long discussion ensued and eventually my family was directed to a rather depressing apartment in a separate building next to the Media Markt (excellent location, if you're looking to buy a new CD player).

My wife gave up and headed to the bar with a hungry kid. Then I showed up and things got surprisingly constructive. We were quickly moved to the very nice suite, we had booked and everybody excused the mishap. Even my wife's drinks were paid for...

Electrocuted?... Think twice before you use the hair dryer. My petty North European health and safety concerns triggered a bunch of chocolates though...

Would we go there again: probably not, and if we did with rubber soles.

Stayed 2 nights at this Hotel. Booked it initially as a 'Top Secret' Hotel on Last Minute.com and got a favourable price for the star rating of the hotel. Chose it because it advertised a free shuttle to and from the airport and the city centre.....however, this ran twice in the morning, 1000 and 1040 and twice in the evening which can hardly be called a 'shuttle service'. The hotel is accessible by metro which is clean and easy and very cheap compared to London and easy enough to understand !!!.
I really don't know how hotels are awarded their star rating as there is no way I would have rated this a 5 star. Found it quite tatty and we weren't even left a complimentary bottle of water !. The swimming pool was attached to the hotel so was not a part of the hotel and not even owned by it so not accessible to the guests unless you were happy to pay 14 euros each a day !!!.
Staff were lovely at reception and extremely welcoming and helpful.
Breakfast was extremely expensive at 24 euros each so needless to say we did not eat there ! and a kit kat chocolate bar in the room minibar was 7 euros !!!...who prices these things ?????
There was absolutely nothing around the hotel which we were surprised seeing as there is a hospital and a university nearby.....not a shop or café....absolutely nothing except for a Media Mart if one was inclined to buy a tv !!!.

We booked this hotel for our 'minimoon' and stayed 4 nights. We got a great deal on the room so upgraded to the suite for 50 euros a night. For a special occaision it was well worth it. We were on the 19th floor overlooking the city and watched the dawn every morning from bed through the floor to ceiling windows (electronic curtain openers meant we didn't even have to move!). A luxurious bathroom with wet room monsoon shower and 2 person jacuzzi was amazing - what wasn't was the very slick marble floor that caused me to slip twice and fall once. We took to spreading towels over the entire floor! 2 toilets, separate dressing room and sitting room completed the suite. nice touches were the ipod/iphone dock and Bulgari toiletries (although when these were restocked, a generic brand was used). The bed was simply enormous! I have never seen one that big in all my travels - literally had to crawl across it to reach my husband in the morning!

Location has been mentioned a couple of times here. Yes it is a little out of town, but the metro station (underground) is only across the street and it's a 20 minute ride into town and you don't have to change so it's simple as anything. And to come home it's only a 14 euro taxi after midnight. Yes it can be annoying to travel back to the hotel to nap and freshen up before heading out for the evening, but it was worth it to have such a swanky base (a similar level of luxury would have cost double if we were in the city centre). It was also only 13 euros to get to Barceloneta beach. But the Metro is perfect. We bought a 10 trip pass for less than 10 euros which lasted us the whole trip.

We didn't eat at the hotel as we felt the prices to be absolutely extortionate. Minibar prices were also steep at 7 euros for a 250ml bottle coke. I know they always mark these up, but that's ridiculous. We also felt that having to pay 14 euros to use the gym (per day) was unecessary and should have been included.

All in all an amazing hotel. The things I have picked up on are so niggly that if that is all I can complain about it was amazing! Would definitely book again.

Room Tip: As high up as possible overlooking the city. Consider the 50 euro a night upgrade to a suite - even...

This is a great place to stay to see and experience Barcelona. It's in between the city and the airport. These are high end accommodations with a breakfast buffet that included foods for a variety of ethnic groups. In-house restaurant is fabulous with gourmet selections. A welcome haven from the intensity of the city.

Make sure to tell you cab driver Hesperia Tower Hospitalet so they know which one to go to. The Metro is across the street and easy to use.

Before going, thought this hotel is difficult to reach. I took bus from Airport and just 15 minutes then arrived. However, the bus station is not clearly specified and I thought I got off one station earlier, anyway, still not too far to walk.
Check in and check out was efficient. Hotel was clean, quiet, with good wifi connection. Just the TV Channels mainly are in Spanish!
There are some local restaurants nearby the hotel, at the back of 'Media Mart'. Walking to subway/metro is around 5 minutes.
