“Funny you should ask...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2012

...and when it was good, it was very good (the bed), and when it was bad, it was horrid (the wi-fi).
Although service was efficient, I wouldn't call it friendly or welcoming. The bed was fantastic. To have free wi-fi is not enough I say...it should be wi-fi with a good signal, good bandwidth and the ability to stay connect for a decent period of time. You have to continually log back in to keep your connection, which is a total wi-fi FAIL for me. The location, proximity to metro and the fantastic neighborhood push this to a four, otherwise would have called it a solid THREE.

Nice quiet location away from the noisy part of Barca. Small friendly lobby makes me not understand how my cousin's wife's bag could be stolen during check-in. Also did not get the feeling that the check-in staff or management really cared, as not contact was made during our stay! Besides that the rooms were good sized, clean and very comfortable. The staff, especially Giuseppe from the bar were friendly and very competent. All in all a good experience for a good price!

Room Tip: Go for 1101....one of the best views

There is comfort in knowing that certain standards are met when staying with branded hotels, and this is exactly how I would describe this typical Sheraton Four Points. Location is in a relatively residential part of town which was perfect for us as our purpose was to visit with family living about three walking blocks away. The hotel is clean with relatively small but perfectly adequate rooms. We did not have breakfast but it looked very nice. Front Desk staff was helpful and the housekeeping staff most accomodating. You have everything you could possibly want within a 10 minute walk and public transportaion as well as plenty of taxis are directly outside the front door. We would certainly stay here again if we return to Barcelona.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor and you'll have a good view

I arrived around 9AM on a rainy day in April for a short business trip. There was one guy working the front desk. It took about 25 minutes to check in; slightly irritating when you've been flying all night and you'd like to sleep. My rate included breakfast. The breakfast buffet was decent--probably worth 10-15 Euros. The buffet doesn't start until 7AM, which is a little late to be a business hotel. Platinum status with Starwood earned free internet and no different room than any of my non-platinum co-workers. You get "upgraded" to a higher floor but the rooms were identical. I will admit, the internet was fast. I think the hotel has 15 rooms on each floor. 11 floors total. The hotel hadn't "turned their air conditioner on yet" so I was only able to open a window. If you turn your AC on, a fan only blows--opening a window then turns your AC off. I think it's ridiculous that a hotel doesn't allow guests to use a functioning air conditioner in April.

Contsruction lasted for probably four hours through the morning. Staff told us they were working on the top floor or roof. Sounded like a drill bit on brick.

The room itself was basic but very clean. Normal layout where you enter the room with the bathroom near the entrance. The queen sized bed was very comfortable--moreso than many European hotels.

The area around hotel has very cheap food and drink options. The closer you get to "los ramblas" (the tourist area where all the action is) prices go up. A coffee and a croissant around the hotel was only 2-3 Euros. Four Points is nowhere near los ramblas--probably a 40 minute walk.

There's a beautiful W on the water. I may try that next time. All said and done the Four Points isn't that bad. I'll give it 3 out of 5 stars--even though the construction and lack of a cool AC kept me awake.

Room Tip: Ask if the AC is "working" yet.

Hotel was immaculate, rooms spacious, bathroom trendy, clean and way above adequate, location very good. Beds were exceptionally comfortable and high quality bed linen made them a pleasure to sleep in. Public transport was easily accessible located just over the road with buses very regular even late at night. Perfect for a stroll in the sunshine to the nearby beach and marina approx 20 minutes away. Nearest bar and shops less than one minutes walk away. We only tried the breakfast in the hotel but there was plenty of choice and when the area was about to close the waitress would let you know so you could go and fill up again if you wanted. The staff in the restaurant and reception were very helpful and extremely polite always ensuring you had all you needed. The hotel in my eyes should be rated higher than a three star.

Room Tip: Make sure you understand how to control the temperature of the room and you will be guaranteed a nic...

Stayed here for 3 nights in March 2012. £70 a night, plus 1 night free with points.

I had expected this to be further out and more awkwardly situated for visiting Barcelona - the reason for staying was getting a free night with our membership points.

But after staying I would recommend it for anyone.

The location is really not that far away, the metro is less than 10 minutes walk away which opens up the whole city anyway, but also from here we walked down the beach and back and also up to the sagrada familia.... if you like walking.

The hotel itself was very nice, from our room we could see the sagrada familia. As you would expect from this chain the rooms are modern and clean.

We didn't try the food in the restuarant but the drinks were reasonably priced and my husband said the beer was the best he got on the trip.

Just around the corner down the road Tangers there is a wonderful little place for breakfast and plenty other restuarants around, as well as a food court at the shopping centre just 5 minutes away.

Before we left I had booked another more central hotel for the last 4 nights and I found myself wanting to be back here!

First of all I really liked this hotel. the rooms were super clean and very spacious. It is very close to the city centre, bus number 7 stops right across the street and the hotel itself is 10-12 minutes walk from Glories metro stop (line 1).

I am not really a good person to say whether the hotel is noisy or not as I grew up in a big city but I didnt notice any particular disturbance (I was on the 6th floor anyways). The hotel lobby downstairs has computers but there is free wifi and it WORKS! I have to say that is not always the case in other places.

The rooms are spacious and super clean. The beds are really comfortable and high. What else do you need? Flat screen tv with all necessary channels to catch up on the news. I didnt try the restaurant in the hotel but there are sevarl cafes, bars just outside the hotel. The glories shopping mall is 5 minutes away (maybe 8 if you are slow) and there are two more supermarkets if you want to buy some groceries.

From the hotel you can also wals down to the beach it is about 20 minutes. The area is quite safe- no problems even during the night.
