“weekend stay after cruise”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Location fine, room OK really liked the contemporary design. Hotel room however in need of some attention broken bedside light, damaged coffe table & blind ripped at bottom. A great plus was the friendliness of the reception staff especially I think his name Marcus?

The hotel is nice. But... 4 stars... Really??
No kettle or ironing board in the room.
Mould smell as couldn't open windows...
And after dropping something and looking under the bed, i know where the mould smell was coming from. HELLO!

The bed was very comfortable
The bathroom was good

Really, i think over priced and over starred.

Location was ok. Good shopping over the road and access to public transport is really easy.
We took the the renfe train from the airport, got off at 'clot'. And walked to the hotel in less than 10 mins
There is a metro underground station almost at the door. And trams and buses etc
Loads of parks around, and the major tourist attractions are walking distance if you are fit, or super easy transport.

Very funky hotel. Good view from the roof

They tried to stab us with 8 euros of hidden tax on checkout, which i refused as was never told about.

Overall. We were happy with the stay, happy with the hotel. But probably wouldn't book again as would find something a bit cheaper perhaps for the same standards.

Room Tip: Higher the better

Altough location is not right in Center of Barcelona , it is reallly close to subway. There is a mall and a market just across the street. From our Window we could see the beautiful agbar tower. Rooms have a modern decoration. The only problem is that you can hear when other guests turn on the elétric curtains, it is like the noise is in your room.

If your are looking for a good value for money, this is your destination. Silken Diagonal is a modes hotel, nice service side by side to Agbar Tower. Service is friendly. Breakfast is self-service, good products, large variety.

It is not near 'city center' but very good connections (tourist bus, metro, bus and taxi). Las Glorias shoppping center at 100 m.

Good for families and business

Room Tip: Bathroom wall is glass so lack of privacy (if it minds you).

Silken Diagonal not as expected. Although well located and staff seeks to be helpful, rooms are not well designed for family. No privacy or separation from bathroom. I had to go to rooftop lounge when my son needed to use the shower and viceversa. Furniture also has sharp edges for small room and beds are too hard. Modern and clean, perhaps okay for couples only. We stayed for 5 nights - too many for me. Would not return.

Room Tip: View away from street.
