“Bathroom walls are made of glass”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2012

This hotel is very modern. So modern that the bathroom walls are made of glass. If you are sharing with a colleague and dont mind baring all this the hotel for you. Its a good thing I wasnt sharing. Free WIFI which was good as I was there on business. A good selection at breakfast. Unfortunately the waiters were more involved in their conversation than attending to the customers.

I stayed in the Silken Diagonal for the second time in June 2012. Hotel is well situated on the metro station as well as closeby to shopping arcade makes the location convenient. Rooms are well sized with bathroon glass. Furniture, carpets are runing out of its best days, meaning some refurb would not be bad idea as well as carpet cleaning. There is construction site next to hotel. That brings noise and dust. Overall fine but for next year trip I will have a look for different hotel already.

Conveninet n strategic. The location of this hotel is beside of Torre Agbar the modern landmark tower at Glories. From here u can take 5min walks to Sagrada Famiglia. Metro station also just step ahead.
The room was clean, modern, spacious. Bfast was OK. Staff was helpfull n friendly. Good services.
The only complain i had was the bed not comfortable, the mattras was hard n i had back pain the next morning. Also the bathroom walls were made from transparent glass, (your friend can see u take a shower) in my case stay with travel mate (man) can be lack of privacy.

Hotel situated 5 tram stops (or 1/2 walk) from conference centre.
Rooms were functional and modern with lots of glass, especially the shower area, but screens are in situ. The aircon was fine for me and you can operate the two blinds if you want to look out.
the hotel is situated on Avienda Diagonal next door to the "Gherkin" and Novotel on the other side.
Reception were very helpful to myself and the restaurant at breakfast was adequate, although I cont comment on the evening meals.
The lifts are computerised and not having any buttons to press inside the lift is strange at first. however if you take the lift to the top floor (10) you can go to the wooden floored roof area. This has a pool (too small to swim in really), loungers and a bar. This looks like a nice place to relax in the evening, and gives you good views across the city

Room Tip: I was in 119 which was just of the lift area, but it was totally quiet, Numbers 9 - 12 are close to...

The hotel is modern and convenient for trams,buses and metro to Las Ramblas.
It has a rooftop swimming pool and bar with great views of Barcelona. There was a DJ playing great 60s music until late.
The breakfast was very good.
There is a modern shopping centre across the road with good shops and restaurants.

Room Tip: Suggest a higher floor room.

Very close to metro and a few stops from major tourist areas. Weird bathroom design with glass wall to bedroom area. Tiny rooftop pool with nice sunbathing area. Friendly and helpful front desk. Modern design was attractive.

Room Tip: Take the tram to the beach!
