I organised a 5 day meeting for a client with the Novotel City.

Slightly out of the centre, but in a great mixed zone (residential, restaurants, shopping, good transport links) the Novotel City is a large, business-orientated hotel. It has a roof top bar and a small gym, with views out to the Sagrada Familia.

Cristina and her event team are fabulous and I couldn't thank them enough for helping me with the event. The food is great, especially for mass catering and the breakfasts are fantastic. We dined out in the local area each night; the Rambla Poble Nou is very close and full of great bars and restaurants.

The sea is +/-25 mins walk.

Room 909 is more than adequate for a single traveller; rooms 09 and 011 are opposite the lift, though the noise is not an issue. Clean and well stocked and the housekeeping staff are very friendly (though not bi-lingual). Free Wifi, ask for codes on reception for each of your devices.

Room Tip: Rooms 09 and 011 are opposite the lifts.

Very polite staff. The best breakfast I ever had in a hotel, again with great service. The greatest roomview one can think of. You can see the whole of Barcelona with views on the Sagrada Familia, Montjuich, the breachfront and cetrainly the magnificent torre agbar just in front (see picture). Excellent working elevator, large choice of free computers with printer at the hall. Very tasty restaurant dishes. Located opposite a large shopping mall and close to the metrostation ( upon arrival you may have some problem finding the hotel). Hammam on top of the building with chill out opportunity. Swimming pool was closed of course in winter. This must be a paradise in summer (but it already is in winter)..

Room Tip: Ask for a room (almost) on top with view on the torre agbar.

Good location for both business & leisure. Taxi's always on hand, Tram less than 2 minutes away. Staff all multi-lingual & friendly. Only used the restaurant for breakfast (€20.00) full selection.
Bar not expensive for a major European city.

Access to all areas of Barcelona very good , so long as you know where you are going!

Rooms are all comfortable, free Wi-Fi very clean & comfortable. Hotel is approx. 40 minutes to one hour from Airport (subject to time of travel)
Has very good leisure facilities - did not have time to use but again well maintained & clean.
There are several bars & restaurants within 5 to 10 minutes walk.

Room Tip: Ensure you ask for a non-smoking room.

Nice, clean hotel. Can easily access places from the hotel. Lovely views from the top of the hotel. Room nice and comfy. Didn't get to use the gym, but looked well equipped and clean. Loved barcelona, lots to see and do, we went for a long weekend and it wasn't long enough!

Check in no rooms ready although I had booked weeks in advance. 45 minutes wait, and when I asked when a room would be ready just got a shrug from the reception manager. Only when I continued to complain was a room found.
Always waiting for a lift only 3 to serve 19 floors.
Breakfast was ok good selection on buffet.
Dinner menu was good and staff pleasant
Overall I would not risk a stay here again

Room Tip: 1st or second floor so you don't have to wait for a lift, you can walk down, as long as you don...

The building is striking and the roof area has been nicely done with small pool, jacuzzi, gym, terrace. Rooms were fine. I could hear the elevator from my room so ask to not be near it. Everything is is good working order and very clean. Staff are professional and polite. Good hotel for business or fun.
