5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2012

Our second stay in this hotel, you can see my review from last July. This time we went for an executive room, which took this hotel to a whole new level for us. Access to the lounge for breakfest, drinks and snacks.. but also help with late check out all can be done in the lounge, including check out.. saves time and hassel. Staff were fantastic.. everyday,... th only bad comment about the hotel is the stupid prices charged for the internet connection... 22 euros per hou, 27 euros for 24 hours (can't be split) or 107 euros for 7 days. Tip walk across the road to the shopping center, it's free !
All the rest is perfect ! well done Hilton !

Room Tip: Executive is a must !

Stayed in Hilton Diagonal Mar for 5 nights in July, last week. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. The staff are exceptionally friendly & helpful. Our room was superb. We had every facility in the hotel. The terrace & pool area is fantastic as is the health & fitness area & sauna. One downfall was the lack of free wi fi. Also the location is fantastic. Give or take it's approx 10 mins outside of Barcelona city centre so you don't have that oppressive heat. The Diagonal Mar area gets a coastal breeze so it's never stifling. There's a beach approx 5 mins walk away which is that little bit quieter than the Barceloneta / town beaches. TheDiagonal Mar Shopping Mall is opposite the hotel, the largest shopping mall in Spain. Also, it might be a v simple point but the breakfasts in the hotel are amazing! Every nationality is catered for. Cannot wait until I return again!

The hotel is very good, no doubt about it.
But the minute you check-in you are victim of the system that is called 'milking out the customer'. Nothing wrong with making revenue of course but it's just too obvious. Everything you touch or ask for is just overpriced. More than € 20,-- for a breakfast is just too much for Spain. And € 27,-- per day for having Wifi access to your own I-pad and a laptop is just crazy. Just across the road is a shopping mall and there it's just free. The drinks in the bar, the water in the room, the snacks in the poolbar: it's all overpriced.
The Diagonal Mar mall has plenty of options for eating but only opening at 10 AM (11 on Sundays), so no good for an early breakfast. There are a few places on the beach, opening at 9.00 AM for breakfast and affordable.
Location is o.k. as a 5 minutes walk to the El Maresme metro station (yellow line) plus another 5 minutes in the train will bring you in downtown.
The bottomline: it's not a bad choice as long as you just use it for sleeping. And enjoying the pool as it's one of the best pools in a city hotel that I've ever seen.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to share your opinion. We appreciate your feedback and we will take in consideration your comments about the rates as this is a good opportunity for us to improve and become better every day.

We celebrate that you enjoyed our out door pool and that you consider like one of the best pools in a city.

You are right 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.

We look forward to welcome you back in the future

Arranged a 5 day/ 4 night stay as a surprise for my wife's 50th birthday. She had wanted a beach break and I fancied a city break - well, Diagonal Mar Hilton gives you the ability to have BOTH !!

I had sent an email to the General Manager requesting an upgrade for this special occassion. When we arrived we were advised that we had been upgraded to a "Relaxation Room" with a seaview on the 14th floor.

When we came to the room, the hotel had very kindly supplied a bottle of cava on ice, and a very nice tasting birthday cake with personal inscription for my wife - a very nice touch and well appreciated.

The room is decorated in "soothing" colours, with a large desk/ working area (not really needed on this holiday - but a nice touch). The King size bed was super comfortable and the leather lounge chair with footrest was the most comfortable chair ever - wish I could have shipped it home!



Bathroom has a jacuzzi with a TV - superb! A very nice seperate shower stall is also provided and had very good water pressure (this can be lacking in many european hotels).

As others have indicated, there are some office buildings that block your direct view of the sea - but all one has to do is turn their head an inch to the right or left - and viola - what a view !!

Very wide choice of food for breakfast - fresh Orange juice served to you at your table - and if you request, you can have proper espresso, cappuccino, etc instead of the very americanised coffee (ie weak) served. Smoke salmon was particularly nice as was the iberian ham.

The first 2 days we just chilled out by the fabulous pool and the nearby beach - plenty of deck chairs and umbrellas - and the hotel provides towels at the pool. Even at midday no problem to do laps in the pool - its not crowded - water temp was perfection - and the view is stunning !

The beach is an easy 5 minute walk - it may not have the charm on a beach with a cove in the Algarve - but it's an extremely clean beach with fine sand. Alot less crowded than the beach near Vila Olympic and Barconaleta. There is a small cafe/bar at the beach which served as our daily lunch spot. Quite nice food, and given that it's smack on the beach - not all that dear at say EUR 10 each, including wine. We also had early evening cocktails served to us at our chairs on the beach - very enjoyable.

Our first night we ate just across the street in the outside area of the shopping mall - on the right hand side there are 3 restaurants - the middle one is called La Casa del Pescado (The Fish House). Once seated, you really dont feel like you're in a shopping zone - it was very nice and relaxing. I was very pleasingly surprised at the quality of the food - order the mussels to start - a HUGE pot of i would say 20/25 mussles in a spicy tomato based broth, followed by grilled prawns - seafood heaven !! For those not into seafood, for the "bargain cost" of only EUR 8, my wife had a half roast chicken which was cooked to perfection. With wine and after dinner drinks, the bill was EUR 42 - excellent value.

As others have mentioned, easy to get into Barca centre with the metro - although I did not do it myself, right outside the hotel the bus 41 will take you straight into centre. There is also a tram that stops on the Av Diagonal on the opposite side of the mall - I took this to the last stop (10 minutes) to Vila Olympic - great place to visit.

Our second night for dinner, we went to Sitges - this is the most delightful seaside town about 45 minutes by train from Barcalona. From the hotel, take a taxi (EUR 8) to Estacion de Franca (near Vila Olympic) - alot less crowded than the other 2 main stations in Barcalona and not underground - you get to station, buy ticket, and as its the 1st station, you get on board your Air con train and wait in comfort until the train leaves.

We had a lovely meal right on the seafront at Sitges - again given the position, under EUR 50 for two, including wine - quite reasonable.

Note the last train back to Barcelona is 22:25 - allow about 15 min to walk from the seafront back to the train station. Very easy to get a taxi at the station back to the hotel.

Overall we found the Hilton Diagonal Mar to be a perfect base to stay in Barcelona - great pool, 5 minutes to the beach, and when you want to "see the sights" of Barcelona, a quick and easy 15 min metro ride or quick taxi. In my view, a better option than staying directly in the centre of Barcelona.

Room Tip: While the city views are very nice, try and get a seaview room - after all, you are 5 minutes from t...

Although this hotel is a bit out of the centre, we found it easy to get into town as there are tram, bus and metro all on the doorstep in addition to the tourist bus. The room was great, had a view to the sea and a jacuzzi bath (with confusing controls). We arrived late due to a delayed flight but staff were friendly and helpful and went out of their way to make sure we were happy and we're knowledgeable and friendly throughout. The shopping centre opposite was a bonus, with lots of places to eat and a great hypermarket for all those things you've forgotten to pack.

Stayed at the Hilton Diagonal Mar earlier this month (July 8-10). Although we did not stay on the executive floor, we had access to the executive lounge by virtue of our Hilton Honors Gold membership. Arrived into Barcelona and at the hotel around 10 AM after a trans-Atlantic flight. Criseanne at check-in was most gracious and ensured our room was prepared as soon as possible, enabling us to access our room around 11:30, which helped. Rooms are well appointed. The bathrooms are quite large, especially by European standards. The best part of the hotel is it's accessibility and location. It is OFF the touristy area (read Las Ramblas, Placa Catalunya, El Born). The Hilton is located in the Forum area, across the street from a shopping center with loads of great deals, the beach (the Mediterranean Sea) is a 10 minute walk away, the Metro is 2 streets over and there is a Hop-on Hop-off (Barcelona City Tours) bus stop a few 100 yards away- a great way to see the city!
The best part of the hotel is the executive lounge- great sweeping views of the city, ample breakfast (although we ate breakfast in the main restaurant which also has a sizeable buffet), and Cava available all the time- nothing like a glass of bubbly in hand while gazing over the city from the 10th floor executive lounge's outdoor deck! The executive lounge concierge, Cristobal, is a gem who goes above and beyond in terms of customer service and professionalism.
All in all, a very enjoyable stay. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Try to get a higher floor room (10th or higher) for best views

My room was very nice, large and full of natural light. Bathroom was also large, but the shower could be a little better and more spacious. As the hotel is big, expect to sometimes wait to use the elevator.

Big downside: no free internet. But the shopping mall across the street had free wifi.

If this is your first time in Barcelona, maybe it would be better to stay in a more central location. This property is right by a good beach but far from downtown. You can easily take the subway to get to other neighborhoods, but you're likely to spend around 15-20 minutes to get to Plaza Catalunya.

Room Tip: Higher floors will give you better views of the city or of the sea.
