I stayed here because it was closer to the port for my MSC Cruise. Ther we alwasy cabs our front so it was not an issue getting a cab the day I was getting on the cruise. When I arrived from teh airport at 7am they actually said my room was ready!! WHAT!! And they were very very friendly with assisting me with all of my questions and making dinner recommendations and reservations. They couldn't have been more helpful .My room was large and clean. It was comfy as well! The bathroom was spacious and clean. The included breakfasts a large buffet that was deicious and the waitresses were also very friendly. Great hotel!!

The hotel is very located very close to the MNAC and were able to get around to most of the Las Ramblas sites within 6-10 EU cab ride. The hotel is very clean and the rooms are big. The breakfast came with our room rate and was fabulous. You could also order a la carte style menus. Marcelo the Concierge was fabulous and helped us very much. He made our stay much better. I thought the hotel was centrally located and easy to get to. Lots of cabs are accessible. We also got a free trip to the spa!

Nice hotel and helpful staff, and the bars are great, the only issue is that it is a little far from the action and you need a taxi to get to La Rambla and other popular areas for example. The fountain show within a few minute walking distance of the hotel runs every night at 9:30 and it worth a visit. Rooms are clean and comfortable, but there is construction going on next door, which was a little annoying.

I booked a two night post cruise stay here. The service and room were super. Some of the staff that enhanced or stay were Sergei and David at the entrance, Sandra who checked us in and Claire who helped us at the dining room. Room was spacious and had both a tub with grab bars and a stall shower. Breakfast buffet had a great selection of various items and the chef cooked eggs to order. Lunch and dinner was challenging as the dining room and rooftop restaurant alternated lunch and dinner. If I ever return to Barcelona I definitely would stay here. PS they even remembered my birthday with a bottle of champagne and special chocolate dessert delivered to our room!

Good location in a quiet place of town, property is very nice with a modern design. We really enjoyed the bar, the scotch selection and service. Housekeeping was very nice and always on top of our needs. The best part of the stay was meeting the concierge Gema Villar the first day. Gema was incredibly helpful from the moment we met her, coordinating our stay in Barcelona and helping further with our next destination. She definitely went beyond any expectations, making our trip a memorable one. I am so glad that Intercontinental Barcelona has Gema as team member.

Normally ‘we don’t talk about Bruno’ but in this case we have to.His exceptional kindness, hospitality and professionalism made our holiday.He and his colleagues go above and beyond their duties to make you feel as if you are part of the Intercontinental Barcelona family. Every service is outstanding from the hall porters/concierge l/réception to the room service and terrace staff.We were particularly impressed with the Club Lounge and how Bruno and his team ( including Armand) make you feel welcome, but also at home. When we come back to Barcelona again next year, it will be to this hotel because we’ve never experienced anything quite like it in all our years of travelling.

This hotel was perfect for our pre-cruise stay in July. The rooms are spacious and quiet with excellent temperature control. The bed was very comfortable. We included the lounge and it was such an oasis after touring each day. The staff members of the lounge were impeccable and friendly. Taxis were always available just outside your door. We were able to take a morning walk around the neighborhood that was quiet and full of green parrots - an unusual treat for us. In the evening, you can easily take in the fountains. The old quarter was just too crowded for my taste, so I am glad we stayed here. I will admit, if you are looking for a pool, this is not the place. But, if you want an upscale, clean, climate controlled, quiet environment to return to, this place is wonderful. The breakfast in the lounge was much more than I expected with hot order items and interesting buffet items. I would definitely return.

The location of the hotel is very good. The Rooms are spacious and comfortable. The hotel staff is friendly and hospitable. There’s a magical musical show happening in the evenings which is at a walking distance from the hotel. And the show is amazing. Hotel has a rooftop swimming pool and a bar. They also have a spa, Sona and steam room too. One can just relax in the spa with hydrotherapy. It’s wonderful.
