“Great Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2012

I stayed at the Novotel Barcelona City for 2 nights and this hotel was fantastic, the rooms were very spacious, lovely bathrooms and very helpful English speaking staff.
Whilst the hotel is not as close to the centre of the city, it is an easy walk to the closest Metro station. The breakfast was fantastic, lovely fresh food and relaxing atmosphere. The pool area on the rooftop is spectacular. A supermarket is across the road which is handy.
I stayed at another hotel in Barcelona for 2 other nights and the Novotel far outweighed the other one.

Room Tip: Higher floors have a great view

Arrived a bit early only to find our room was not ready yet. This is to be expected and I was happy to go kill a few hours in the city.

Reception and staff were courteous and very helpful. The rooms are acceptably spacious and clean - everything you'd expect from a Novotel room.

There is a hop-on-hop off bus stop (Torre Agbar) across from the hotel. This is an excellent way to explore the city whilst getting a guided tour. You have the option of a 24/48 hr ticket at E24 each and you can use this as transport whilst seeing the sights!

There is a shopping centre next to the hotel and a few good bars and restaurants in the neighbourhood.

All in all, a very pleasant stay.

We have just returned from a magic time in Barca and this hotel was magic. The entire staff made the stay even more enjoyable, they were first class. Good location with easy secure parking we had a great time all at a very reasonable price

Novotel expectations, and very good location and quality, rooms large enough so shower bathroom. Was located on 8th floor: calm and nice view over the city. Pay a visit to the 19th for the swimming pool and overview. Just long queues for the breakfast...

There is nothing unpleasant about this hotel to a first time traveller to Barcelona. Check in and out was quick. Room was good and well maintained. Elevators were adequate. Staff was helpful and spoke good English. The hotel has a metro station nearby and a tram stop, even closer at Cal d' Aranyo. The Diagonal Avenue on which the hotel is situated is a happening place. Just across the Diagonal Avenue is Glories Commercial Centre which houses a Carrefour where groceries are available at reasonable price. The hotel has a free internet and a printer in the lobby. If you have forgotten to do a web booking for a visit to La Sagrada Familia before arriving at Barcelona, you can do it from the lobby computer and print your advance ticket to bypass the queue to this famous attraction.
