“Hotel offered way more than expected”
Reviewed March 20, 2012

Impressed from the start. The check-in was really smooth and efficient with a really friendly and professional staff member. The discovery of the room was a real pleasure with this amazing space and view on one side over Barcelona and on the other on the sea. The room was very spacious, clean, modern and the plus of the jacuzzi was certainly not expected. We did have a good night sleep. The breakfast was varied and good between sweet and savory. All in all, an excellent start for the holiday! Fantastic value for money. Although this hotel is away from the city centre, they are still a range of shops, restaurants and amenities nearby.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to share your opinion.

I am happy to learn that you had a really nice stay in the hotel. It was particularly pleasant to see that your impression of our staff was very helpful and friendly.

It is true that Hilton Diagonal Mar is not located in the heart of Barcelona but the metro and bus can reach to the city center quite fast.

I am sure that all your suggestions will help other guests to enjoy even more their stay in Barcelona.

It will be an honor to have you again in the hotel. We look forward to welcome you back again soon.

Kind Regards

We arrived early at 1100 Hrs and the lady at reception told us our allocated room wasn't ready but looked through the available rooms and checked us in straight away ..... Good start !

The room was very clean and modern on the 15th floor with sea view .

All the staff in executive lounge where really friendly and helpful on places to go etc

The gym was small but had the basic machines you require .

We had an evening meal in the Indigo restaurant which was excellent but a little on the expensive side. Breakfast was very good with vast selection of different foods on offer.

We didn't come across a single member of staff who was rude or miserable and the whole experience was relaxing and a perfect break. Thank you Hilton !

Room Tip: Pay the extra for executive rooms floor 15th and up ...The exec lounge is worth it .

The hotel is easily reachable from the airport taking the bus (about 5 Euro) until Plaza Catalunia (25 min) and than the subway (2 Euro each ticket, yellow line): El Maresme stop (20 min). It's very close to the seaside and in a very quite location. The lobby is simple, not really sophisticated but looks good anyway. People at the desk and entrance is immediately ready to assist you with baggages and they speak a good English. I got an executive room and it was large enough, good furnitures, very clean and the view was good. Everything was working well. The executive lounge is at 15th floor and the view is on the seaside, very nice. It's a quite good looking lounge, not very elegant, the yoffer you some snack and cookies during and drinks and during lunhc and dinnes time something to eat but nothing special. I experienced better lounges in my Hilton experience than this one. The are is safe and during evening you're quite close to Barceloneta and Ciutdella Villa Olimpica where people go to have fun during the evening, it's 10 min by subway which is located 5 min away from the hotel by foot. Generally speaking a good experience, even if I visited higher level Hilton.

We were in Barcelona two days and stayed here our second day. The hotel and rooms were very upscale. Roof top pool and Honors Club were exceptional. One block off of the beach and very close to the subway which is very easy to navigate and get to all of the best attractions. Check in and check out a snap! Would definitely return to this hotel.

Very interesting location in Barcelona, if this is your first time to the city and unfamiliar with the Metro/Aero bus you should take a taxi, about 40 euros. If you are familiar to the Metro get off at the Maresme Forum stop on L4 line and walk to the other side of the mall.
The hotel is not located in a popular tourist area but an area for conventions, there is a very large mall across the street with a lot of shopping and restaurants.
This hotel treats HH Diamonds very well as they offer full breakfast in the lounge or the restaurant and will give upgrades.
The hotel is rather new but the rooms are kind of plain, if you get the ocean view side it is a nice view. Executive lounge does not serve any hot items during breakfast or the evenings, wines and beers are available all day with the hard stuff out at 6:00pm. Also a great balcony outside the Executive lounge.
Pictures posted.

Yes, I know I said great but note on caution on the airport taxis, they added 20 euros to our fare of 25 euros as compensation for waiting around the airport for next fare which was not explained and thankfully we could expense it.

That said the Hilton itself was only 20 drive away from airport and is in a business area which has some upmarket restaurants (ask for the local fish place, can't recall name but everyone knows it behind the reception) - if you walk out the front door there is a taxi rank and a big shopping mall with cinema and plenty places to eat reasonably cheap.

Cirque du soleil are walking distance as is the beach and lots of walkways...

Hilton was predictable excellent and professional with big rooms, well cleaned and turned out and the room service was some of the best ever - the pizza, steaks and anything with chicken are V.good. Cruz campo beer is excellent. Hotel gym is a bit warm even in February so hopefully they can sort out the air con soon, and the outside pool was closed due to severe cold weather which was not a problem - it is not heated.

To save 4 euros the reception can give you vouchers for the excellent bus tour of barcelona which is 24 euros each (20 with voucher) and other money vouchers...best to pay for 2 days for not much more and you get free travel round most of the city for 2 days for 30 euros

Wi fi is silly price with Swiss com in the hotel so go to the mall and get free at a cafe for a short while at least...overall though another great stay at hilton, gracias!

We were able to stay at the Hilton as part of a cruise deal with Royal Carribbean. It fitted in nicely as before the cruise it gave us a couple of days in Barcelona. Although it is on the outskirts of the city we had no problem getting around as the undergound was close and cheap and taxis were also available just outside. We stayed in May and the weather was lovely so as it was out of season the rooftop pool was very relaxing. Our room was clean and fairly spacious with terrific views of the city. The bathroom had a small window beside the bath which was quite novel to watch the world below whilst having a bath.
We found the staff very friendly and always had time for a little chat if you wanted. We didn't eat in the evening as we wanted to explore Barcelona but breakfast was nice enough. Overall a pleasant and relaxing stay in a very modern hotel.
