Althought it is only 10min walk to the sea and only a few minutes walk to the tube, it is located in a dodgy looking area with lots of poor people sleeping outside and gathering recycling in their shopping troleys. We saw one hitting somebody with a long woodden stick and decided to walk around the estate to get to our hotel from the other side. Room was clean and tidy, except little bathroom bugs (silverfish). Breakfast was tasty and reception staff were friendly and helpful. Apparently there was airport shuttle for 8 euros which can be ordered the day before checking out, alternatively a taxi for 2 with 2 hand luggage cost us around 38 euros

Multiple choice question; would you stay in a hotel that had one, or all of the following; (a) the continuous (and remarkably industrious) transport of stolen metals via shopping carts outside your room windows (b) immediate access to multiple auto chop shops (c) multi-layered tagging, trash and graffiti (d) all of the above.

If your answer is 'd' - the NH Diagonal is your kinda place.

The good:
Sleeper neighborhood - looks dangerous and dirty, but has easy access to everything.
Clean Overall - with the tapas tasting, gag-inducing exception of discovering a urine stained mattress when I pulled a corner of the sheet off the bed.
Pretty good service - the desk guys and girls spend plenty of time with each guest...maybe a little too much time.
10 minutes to the beach - Olympia area (where tourists go to eat)

The bad:
Nothing major really - provided you answered 'd'.

Close to: L4 and L1 Metro lines. Fast and simple to buy tickets and sort out where you are going.


Would I stay here again? Sure. It's Barcelona, and every corner of the city begs you to love it.

Room Tip: Be aware there are multiple NH Hotels in the City - be sure you go to the right one.

The hotel was clean, the staff were firendly at reception. The restaurant staff made faces when asked for a coffee.
The location of this hotel is not the best - it is situated in an industrial zone. It is quiet, but its surrondings are pretty ugly.
The hotels' buffet breakfast is a joke. Probably the worst I have seen in my life. they will charge you 15 euro per person and you will get water melon and other fruits, some yoghurt and oversweetened (oh, gosh, extremely over sweetened) cakes. No lunch meat selection. No cheese selection. Lousy bread selection. NO EGGS WHATSOEVER!!! In any form (boiled, scrambled or omlette). I was extremely dissatisfied with their breakfast. Waiters are making faces.

We had a good stay here. The rooms were modern and clean. The breakfast buffet was pretty good. Lots of diffrent items to choose from. Our only issue was when we needed to check in and out, only one staff member at all times. It took forever to wait our turn.

The only good thing I can say about this is its a 10 min walk from beach. In a horrible run down area with cockroaches outside. Even saw a rat one night. Rooms are small with no tea or coffee making facilities. Lifts are slow and you feel like you are in a sauna. If you enjoy a full English breakfast eat elsewhere. I can honestly say one member of staff at reception was friendly. I wouldn't call this a hotel more like a motel or a hostel
