Leave the urban excitement of Barcelona behind. Sofitel Skipper Barcelona is a welcoming verdant oasis that exudes elegance at the gateway to the city’s Gothic Quarter. Totally redesigned, it is the brand’s new flagship hotel in Southern Europe. Spirits soar before the luxuriant vertical garden that springs from the hotel’s façade, foreshadowing the delights that hide within. Once you’re through the doors, the bustle of your vibrant city surroundings disappears and la vida chic takes over. Sofitel’s signature French appeal starts with a “Bienvenue” upon arrival and spreads throughout each stay, from the décor and ambient fragrance to the ubiquitous joie de vivre.

Hotel's Favorite
This review is actually for March 2020 as I’ve just noticed it was sat in “drafts” and had not been submitted! We stayed here for three nights. The rooms were nice if a little tired. The beds are incredibly comfortable and the bathrooms clean and well provisioned. We didn’t get much sleep the first night as we were at the front of the hotel and the traffic noise was immense. There was no fuss at reception when we asked to be moved and we were on our new rooms within fifteen minutes. The breakfast is lovely - fresh fruits, cereals, toast and pastries. The hot food was past its best when we got there as it is simply in dishes with lids and not kept hot. However it is the restaurant staff who stole the show. They make this hotel what it is. Friendly, helpful, thoughtful and just downright awesome. Nothing was too much trouble for Juan and his team and we ate there every night accompanied by their humour and professionalism.

This was our first stop on a two week vacation in Spain and wow did they help set the tone for a fantastic trip! We arrived early and jet-lagged after a long overnight flight and were greeted outside at our Taxi and helped with our luggage. Check-in was smooth and quick. The front desk staff was incredibly friendly and helpful and even had a room ready for us early! The room was spacious and updated with a huge bathroom with a deep soaking tub. We just booked a basic room so we didn’t have much of a water view, but it was still very comfortable. The rooftop pool was a little crowded, but the lower pool was very relaxing with comfy chairs and a nice bar. We had dinner one night at the restaurant, Tendiez, and the food was delicious. I was a little worried about the location as I usually stay downtown, but it was perfect - just a block from Barceloneta Beach restaurants/bars/clubs and only a quick metro ride or taxi into the center. Definitely recommend!

The most perfect holiday, made better by all the wonderful staff at the hotel. From the moment we walked in they made us feel at home. The team at the front desk were great and their advice and help in these difficult times was extremely helpful. The hotel is spotless and clean. The breakfast, fabulous. We dined at Tendiez which is exceptional and we’ll worth visiting. The room was awesome. We stayed in a suite and it was beyond what we expected. A great view and amenities. The beds are super comfortable, and we had a whirlpool bath which the kids loved. There are two pools, both of which are perfect in the late afternoon after visiting the beach which is a stones throw from the property. This was our second stay with the Pullman Barcelona Skipper, and we will always stay with them when visiting Barcelona. A big thank you to the team.

Once again the hotel did not disappoint. We had a very nice room on the 6th floor with a view over the sea. Rooms are very comfortable and of good size, and quiet for Barcelona. Due to the current situation the hotel was pretty empty. However the service was great despite reduced staff, everyone went the extra mile to make us feel welcome, special mention to reception and the "bell boy". Security / heath measures were taken very seriously and adhered too at all times. Overall I felt safe in the hotel and everywhere in the city, as the locals take this much more serious then in my home countries France and the UK.

Choosing a hotel in Barcelona is not easy, there are so many. But after finding and researching quite a few and finding none that totally satisfied, I booked the Sofitel, my favourite hotel brand. And what a good decision that turned out to be. The hotel throughout is beautifully designed and airy, with top quality furnishings and fittings. Our room and ensuite were spacious with tasteful furnishings and décor. We had chosen a room with a sea view and it was delightful sitting on the balcony sipping a morning coffee or evening glass of wine. We had a meal in the hotel restaurant twice, top class tapas, and a good breakfast in the mornings. All the staff were very friendly and helpful, one lovely lady even arranging tickets for La Sagrada Familia when we were having difficulty. The hotel is a short walk from the beach and there are a number of restaurants within easy walking distance. There is a metro station and a hop-on hop-off bus stop nearby and it is very easy to hail a taxi.

Overall very pleasant stay - the hotel is in a good location close to the beach and you have direct access to the tourist bus (3 minutes walk). The staff is friendly and the hotel flexible for special requests. The hotel is not necessarily new and could need a bit more maintenance, but overall it's ok esp. for Europe. Breakfast buffet is great!

The hotel is located close to public transport (5 minutes walk from L1 metro) and is also close to the beach. The upgraded room was not more than average and the condition of the facilities for a 5* hotel was surprisingly poor for Pullman standards. The staff were very friendly and the Internet connection possibly one of the best I have experienced (both in ease and speed (125Mbps was measured)). I felt comfortable but could possibly been just as comfortable somewhere else for the price paid.
