What a grand hotel! My husband and I enjoyed it so much we cancelled a stay that we had booked at another hotel for a later trip and came back to the HIlton Diagonal Mar. The hotel is all that one would expect - beautiful furnishings, lovely pool, deck and poolside bar, very comfortable rooms with a comfy bed and beautiful bathroom. We were on one of the top floors with a wall of windows facing the sea - breathtaking! We thoroughly enjoyed the nicely appointed breakfast and complimentary cocktails and hors de'orves in the afternoon.
The hotel location couldn't be better- just a short stroll to the beach, nice restaurants and shopping across the street, and a hop/on bus stop just down the block. The service was more than helpful and friendly. If you are heading to Barcelona, this is the place to stay.

Room Tip: Request a room with a sea view. Although, the view of the city on the north side of the hotel is al...

The Hilton Diagonal Mar Barcelona is very well located in a quiet area, within 5 minutes walking distance to the Metro station. I love Barcelona and I found this hotel to be the ideal place to relax after a long day of walking through the city. Every time you stepped into the hotel, you could feel you were entering a hotel with a very high standard. Lobby is in pristine conditions, staff looks very proud to work there and they are very friendly and the room was fantastic, very modern and comfortable. I will recommend this hotel to all my friends and family who are looking for the perfect place to stay in Barcelona. Oh and Barcelona is wonderful!! :)

We loved it. Why? The staff in general, Cecilia in particular. At check in, we did not like the room that was first assigned to us and requested another room. Cecilia at the front desk was more than helpful and assigned us a corner room on the 22nd floor
with stunning views of the City, we even had a view from the bathroom. The rooms are very nice appointed and very comfy beds. We strongly recommend rooms in the executive floors even thought there more expensive, the expense is well worth it. Be aware that some lower floor rooms might have the view blocked by close by windows. The executive lounge on the 15th floor has an excellent breakfast: scrambled eggs, hash browns, bacon, sausages, cold cuts and very good espressos. In the evening : wine and hard liquor along with tapas makes it a great way to relax before dinner. Will we recommend this hotel........you bet we will.

Room Tip: Higher floors have better views

Location is very good. Hotel is clean and generally well equiped. I would not recommend to go to Barcelona over religious days ie Easter as all shopping malls / shops are mostly closed. Only bars and restaurants are open. Also Hotel pools are closed from Sept to April.

I want to be fair as I am not one to write reviews but would like to set some expectations in regards to this Hotel. First and foremost it does offer a beautiful view of the water but is very far from the square and historic sites of Barcelona. It was referred to as the new city by the bartender and our taxi driver and indeed it is. Everything is ultramodern except the customer service.
The reception desk was flat out rude and ignored our request to check in at the Exceutive lounge upon our arrival as instructed by emails from the hotel. We were using points plus cash rewards and were told that we would need to pay an additional fee upon our arrival for the twin bed for our daughter. Wait , are we not using points and already paying a fee ?
The hotel is across from a mall and that is the only atrraction in the area. I think they cater to a business travler and not someone there for a holiday. No turn down service or leaving the lounge with a wine glass to enjoy in your room . We were ask to place our wine in a styrafoam cup! Ok if at the Holiday Inn but not standard for a four star hotel! I would choose something closer to the square and be sure that they apprecaite those travlers redeeming well earned loyalty points. Enjoy Barcelona!

Room Tip: Ask for a Ocean View!

My excellent rating for this property is mostly based on service. The property itself is also fairly good, probably deserving 4/5.

What I liked: The staff, the staff and the staff! Very friendly and efficient check-in and helpful staff in the executive lounge. What was really exceptional though was the friendliness of the staff in the restaurant. As a solo traveller, they really made sure I would not get bored and even helped me with sightseeing, providing useful tips on Barcelona and walking me through the city map - something you might expect from front desk staff, but not wait staff at the restaurant. Speaking of the restaurant, this was another highlight of this place. Relatively speaking, it is fair value and the food extremely good. I know you don't go to Barcelona to eat a Club Sandwich, but they had the best presented and best tasting club I have ever had. On the 2nd night, I had a steak which was also very good and well prepared. There is some "local" offering on the menu, but it mostly felt like an American-style menu and I personally like to see more local cuisine on hotel menus. Location of the hotel is also interesting. It is not downtown so for those in Barcelona primarily for sightseeing, you do need to hop on the tram or metro which is less than 5 minutes away from the hotel. For those into shopping, the hotel is in front of the Diagonal Mar shopping complex which has a couple of nice shops and a lot of casual dining options. I was provided with a room on the executive floor. the room was decent in size and everything was well maintained. Bathroom size was also quite good. I had a view of the ocean and the "beach" area nearby. As a Diamond member with Hilton, I was provided with complimentary internet, which worked fine for the duration of the stay. Very modern hotel. Nice, open lobby area

What could be improved: Not much - I found the food offering in the executive lounge to be standard and simplistic and quality could have been one notch higher. Also, although I quite liked the room, the floors (wood-style) are starting to show some signs of aging. The room did not look nor feel dated, but it could probably use a rejuvenation program in the near future. finally, given that it was low season, I was expecting the rate to be somewhat lower. From a value perspective, it is fair, but not great
