I stayed at the Novotel with my teenage boys for the first time and would never stay at another again. If I could give this hotel zero stars I would based on service. While coming back from our day outing my teenage son told me that blood was on the pillow, I reported it to the front desk the next... More

Just returned from short break to Barcelona, travelling with 2 children aged 11 and 8 and 2 adults. Room was ok, was on the 6th floor so didn't get any traffic noise. Hotel reception staff were very helpful, not the same about restaurant staff. The pool was freezing and not child friendly. Had about 6 sun loungers only so had... More

My family enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The location was great. We were in walking distance from the hop on and off tram. Even though we were not actually in Barcelona, we were not far away. The "family suite" was small but comfortable. If you are looking for luxury, this is not the place. The people working there were... More

When you are seeing the country hopping from hotel to hotel staying one or two nights what you are looking for are the basic amenities presented clean and well. Novotel does this. We were at the hotel only at nights and the day was in Barcelona City seeing sights and enjoying the cafes at and around La Ramblas. The rooms... More

Stayed for business recently and did not expect much. It certainly met expectation but did not do anything to push the boundaries.

The Hotel is deteriorating, rooms, dining area, etc. needs an upgrade. I have been staying here over the last few years. Close proximity to the motorway, deal for early meetings out of town. Helpful staff. Free wifi.
