“Good hotel for exploring the city”
Reviewed October 23, 2011

Although location is remote from main attractions , is a very new and modern city area, 250 meters from the sea , good shopping mall across the street , and touristic bus stop at 100 meters. Metro station for L4 is in immediate vicinity as well. Hi tech room , good breakfast , good and professional service. Nothing special to remember about but in a good way , so the experience has only positive sides.

Overall this is not a terrible hotel, but it lacks maturity in the service area:

- tried to use the spa for massages twice without success:

* Sunday on arrival, after having booked a request online, which was apparently never received... not sure if staff knew what I was talking about.
*Monday in afternoon (around 4.00PM).

Felt that they did not much care about the client, or about their business. Considering their rather high rates, they missed out on 300 euros of billing.

- Gym: good assortment of machines, free weights + a window on the outside, which is a big plus when compared to most underground gyms at European hotels. But, no towels before 10.00AM, when most business people would agree that the time to use the gym is usually between 6 and 8.00AM.

- Spa: sauna, jacuzzi. No access available, despite having booked an all-inclusive fare. Not sure what I really paid for.

- Lounge at Level 15: not sure the coffee machine is the best around. Gave up trying to make it work after 10'. Drinks are available, but no food around either in morning or late afternoon.

- Restaurant: I completely missed the restaurant. It did look closed every time I looked that way, so I ended up eating in other places in town or around the hotel. More euros missed by the hotel team.

- Room: OK. Bed is just OK. I have experienced much better (try Marriott Berlin).
TV had no pay movies, just a few TV stations.

All in all, this stay was disappointing for me. I am visiting Barcelona on a regular basis, and believe that I have not yet found my ideal hotel. Will keep looking around.

I attended a Medical Congress at the Barcelona International Conference Centre which is just across the road from the hotel - it was therefore perfectly located in this respect. The hotel is also very close to the beach and has a large shopping mall nearby. The underground station is within a block from the hotel, and trams and buses stop nearby. There is also a constant source of taxis nearby. It is easy to get in to the city centre on the metro. The staff at the hotel are friendly and very helpful, particularly at the front desk. Fabrizio is 'the man' - great to find an All Black supporter in Spain!! (my visit took place during Rugby World Cup time). The facilities are top notch. We had an executive room with sea views and had a wonderful time. Costs for doing laundry in the hotel are a little steep - we found a laundromat in the nearby mall. Everything is electronically monitored, so don't let your kids start shifting the snacks and drinks in the minibar around as you may need to buy them! Overall an excellent hotel option for Barcelona. Thanks to all the staff who made our time in Barcelona so memorable.

Room Tip: Ask for sea views. The executive rooms also have access to the spa and to the lounge on the 15th flo...

Very handy to the convention center across the road. Two minutes walk to the underground for easy access to the city center. Clean and comfortable. Reception staff were excellent (Fabrizio & Alesandro especially). The touch screen in the room drove me daft until a member of staff showed me the superior effects of a ball point pen (!). Even then it took an age to cool the room through inefficient air con. Breakfast was very boring. Executive suite on 15th floor a real advantage (but they could be faster at replacing the snacks).

Hotel ist well positioned for convention and business stay. Good in combination business-leisure. There is a metro station just behind the hotel directly to the old town and to Barceloneta.
nice and comfortable rooms.

Just returned from a 3 night stay sightseeing. Location is not right in the centre but very good transport links with both bus, tram & city tour routes right outside of the door which takes 10 mins to the Glories metro station which is 4 stops from Catalunya Sq.
Very close to the beach and a large shopping centre, Diagonal Mar opposite the hotel with a good selection of shops & restaurants.
Choose the executive room which gives you access to the 15 floor which is great to chill on the large balcony with access to free drink & snacks.

Negatives:
The airconditioning is terrible which does not help with comfortable sleep.
Coffee making facilities in the room but no kettle or cutlery.
breakfast if very basic & not good value for money.
