Hotel's Favorite
I would like to express my thanks to all the staff at the Novotel City Barcelona following our stay 13th - 15th March. In view of what was happening daily, your staff were always very helpful and cheerful especially as the situation was a complete unknown to all. They remained extremely professional providing an excellent and first class service. When all this is over we intend to visit your beautiful city again and stay at the Novotel City and to see all the lovely things we missed on this trip. Again please pass on my sincere thanks to all the staff and hope they are all well and safe and we will see you all again very soon.

My husband and I booked a suite and was so happy we did. We were a little worried booking after reading some of the reviews but our stay was fabulous. The suite was large with separate living/dining area and 1/2 bath. The minibar had water, sodas and couple of beers that were refilled when our room was cleaned. The bedroom was large with a very comfortable bed and bathroom had a large shower, separate soaking tub and double sinks. The staff was fantastic from our check in to the waitstaff and housekeepers. The rooftop bar is a destination in itself, you can see Torre Agbar, Sagrada Familia, and Montserrat from there. I recommend mojitos, sangria, pizza and Padron peppers. The location is fantastic as well. We could walk to the beach in about 25 minutes. There is a shopping center across the street with restaurants, shops and our favorite, a supermarket, be sure to go to the 2nd floor if you go!! It's also close to metro line 1, trams and busses. The only con I think is the 1/2 bathroom is super small and hard to close door when you're in it. I highly recommend.

The hotel itself is ok, but since covid, the room services is non existant. Having to call everyday for service is annoying. bar at the roof top was closed but many people got there and left dirty staff and not clean properly for others to seat. It was close to shops, supermarket, transport etc. Staff was ok. Defenitley they need to work out the sound proof on the rooms, everytime the neighbourh shut his dor My wall would shake, and that was a big No No for me to come back at this property.

Good morning dear Franciscojcpd, We appreciate your comments regarding your stay at our Novotel Barcelona City. We are so sorry that you have had this inconvenient regarding the room service, but due to COVID-19, we should apply the rules that actually are available, so to avoid the contact between the guest and the hotel staff at the date of the stay we didn’t have our room service available. Moreover, according to the new rules of COVID-19, we will relax our measures for our clients. We hope that if you give us another opportunity we will offer you a very nice stay. Best regards, Alicia U Guest Experience Assistant

ACCOR HOTELS told us to choose NOVOTEL city Barcelona because Pullman is closed for renovation. It's been a long time since I had such a disappointment as NOVOTEL CITY BARCELONA. I really don't recommend it. Let's start with the fact that the windows in the room are leaky and you can hear noises and, above all, renovation and workers from across the street from 7am. Then there is a bad smell in the hallway. It’s hotel 4 star- The service from the reception is not nice, no one speaks good morning in the morning and if you want water you have to pay for it. in the room, apart from the kettle, there are no cup for coffee or tea. they don't have a wine opener in the hotel, the opener you can get at the restaurant only until 22.00. two different cleaning ladies entered the room without knocking on the pretext that they wanted to clean up. On the day of your arrival we wanted to eat in the restaurant (they say that kitchen is closed) although the kitchen was open and it was obvious that the cook was preparing the dish, no one even offered a club sandwich to the room. in addition the fron desk say to put on a mask even when you drink water in the reception hall! even if you report everything, guest manager BARBARA / no one will apologize and find a solution!
