The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful making for a great start to my stay. Check in is at 3pm, while I arrived at 1pm. I was given the option to wait until 3pm for a Queen bed to become available or take 2 singles now. After the long journey was happy to take the singles. The room was...

Thank you for staying with us and your feedback. As you say the bar in the 13th floor has a very nice ambience and amazing views, it is even better on summer when you can make use of the outside pool and take advantage of the location just 5 min away from the beach. Also our prices are set according...

Room is very nice size for Europe with a nice view, bedding was comfortable and the bed in my room was nice and firm. The location is very good with lots of things to do near the hotel. The restaurant was excellent and the service is great. The fitness center is lacking. This hotel needs a bit of TLC but...

Everything a standard Marriott quality but hot water was very poor, hardly any pressure. Good breakfast though. Overall I would say it was ok. Due to location there's no parking at the hotel and a parking nearby was quite expensive, I believe circa 25 Euros for the night.

The location was good, the service was great the amenities are good but the reason that i couldn't give it 5 stars is that the AC was only heater with no cold sitting which is very weired for a big hotel under the marriott management , and needed more attention based on the price paid and the big name

Since my last stay the hotel has done some remodelling. The major change is to convert the 13th floor fitness room to a bar. From a bar perspective this add as natural meeting place to the hotel - however the fitness room is now a windowless room roughly 5*5 meters on the 3rd floor, packed with equipment. Combined with the...

Thank you for your comments. As you said we converted the 13th floor into a Cocktail Bar and Restaurant to improve the guest's experience by taking advantage of the marvelous views we have in there. Despite the gym now does not have such a views, we tried still to provide the same service in it. We also apologize if your...

The room was clean and very comfortable. Located next to the Diagonal Mall, plenty of restaurants within walking distance. Short cab ride to the downtown area. The staff was very friendly and helpful, with recommendations and advice.

Our experience was enhanced by the excellent service from Toni the bartender on the magnificent 13th floor lounge. His Sangreas and mohitos were perfection and his knowledge of his city was wonderful. We thank him for his excellent service and personality. Our front desk service was exceptional as well and all provided smiles and fabulous service.
