“Awesome Hotel!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2012

We stayed at Hotel Silken Diagonal for 5 nights. The hotel is very modern and beautifully designed. The entrance lobby and reception area is very interesting with design detail everywhere you look. Staff of the hotel is very helpful and friendly. We booked a bigger room on the 6th floor with an attractive view of the Agbar Tower. The room was clean and very well planned. We didn’t use the restaurant at the hotel as we explored quite a bit of the city. The breakfast is an extra we didn’t had breakfast at the hotel there is lots of little café’s across the hotel at a shopping mall. We rented bicycles from the hotel and discover Barcelona by cycling. The rides weren’t too complicated Barcelona is very cycle friendly. The hotel is also close to the main metro line. It really is in a good position, not too far to explore the areas of interest but very quiet in the evenings. We used taxis in the evening to go to restaurants. There are a few good restaurants about 2 blocks away from the restaurant but we mostly went to restaurants closer to the city centre. There is a roof top bar and swimming pool with breath taking views of Barcelona. Good for a before dinner cocktail. We will go back to Hotel Silken Diagonal. Thank you to all the staff at Hotel Silken Diagonal for making our stay so memorable.

Room Tip: We booked a superior room. It is a standard room with an extra seating area. The extra space was goo...

Spent 20 hours in this hotel.
Everything went very smoothly, and had no need to explore the city.
Car park is below hotel, but you have to find your way around the block!
Reception - very helpful & gave us an upgrade!
Room - very comfortable and clean - bathroom with glass wall - interesting!
Toilet had tiled walls and good extractor fans!
Plenty of handy power points for the gadgets!
Though we could see the Diagonal we could not hear it!
Al in all - good value!
Would use it again if we had more time

Room Tip: Visit the roof bar at sunset! What a view! Restaurant was a pleasant experience, as we did not wish...

stayed at this hotel with my fiancee for 4 days.Very clean stylish modern hotel, rooms very well presented with shading out shower wall and electric blinds.Situated on avenue diagonal 4 or 5 stops on underground from las ramblas underground very easy to use to get about.Directly across the road there is an upcoming shopping mall with shops and a food court.Barcelona is a wonderful place to see highly recommended and so is this hotel a great place to stay would definately stay there again.

One word: great! Stylish, great design of the rooms, great position to visit the city, the view from the last floor, in front of the Agbar Tower, is astonishing. One of the best hotels i ever booked in the world.

we stayed for a week at the beginning of august and had a wonderful time. A few minor faults in that the room wasn`t ready when we arrived, also we had booked a room that when we got it actually looked out towards a building site. However a quick word at reception and we were moved to another room no problem. Our daughters had room 625 and this room had fantastic views of the Sagrada and the Torre Agbar. Rooms were a good size well cleaned every day and one night when we needed extra towels they were brought to the room within 10 minutes. We thought the reception staff were excellent and very helpful giving us advice and booking tables at restraunts for us.
Its about 7 or 8 minutes by underground from Las Ramblas but the station is only a two minute walk from the hotel. Taxi to the beach costs between 5 and 8 euros to Bogatel Beach which had good facilities ( bars/ showers/ toilets etc.)
Overall excellent stay, yes there is a glass screen around the bathroom, but we new about this when we booked it so it wasn`t a problem.
I would definitley recommend the hotel and would stay there again.

Room Tip: room 625 has excellent views so i would guess also 425,525,725,825 etc

excellent interior decoration of both the rooms and the common areas. I loved the glass bathroom and the fact that is separated from the WC. I loved the view to the cucumber building.
The room is spacious enough. The breakfast wonderful. It had everything.
The stuff was more than helpful.
Although it is not at the centre of the city the metro station is 200 metres away and the centre 2-3 stops away.
It is 20 minutes walk from the bus terminal.
The price was ok for Barcelona standards.

Stayed here for a long weekend in march-i was very impressed with the hotel itself-lovely rooms, and very impressive reception-very nice,modern building.. however-the service is awful.. we had food one afternoon in the restaurant, we were seated for 15-20minutes before anyone came near to serve us, the manager there clearly could see us sitting there-she looked over several times, and there was no one else in the restaurant-only us, but she was too busy on her phone to be bothered with us! And then, cleaners came down-and were clearly not happy to see us sitting there(despite the restaurant being open)and cleaned around us.

Breakfast was advertised as being open until 11am-but when we went down at 10.15am-the staff were already clearing away the food, and turning off the coffee machine. Our room wasn't serviced one day, and when we rang reception, we were told the house keepers had just left for the day. So, we asked for clean towels, and the reply and attitude we got was-that's not my job, therefore not my problem-this seems to be a problem in the hotel in general...very frustrating, as we were paying a lot to stay here! Nice hotel-but the staff could do with some customer care training!

Room Tip: ask for a quiet room!
