First room we were given smelt strongly of cigarette smoke, to their credit they immediately changed room for another one. Good breakfast. A little out of the way, but didn't have to go far to catch Hop on Hop off bus.

We had booked five nights here as a post cruise stay. The Hotel is perfectly located near the beach and across the street from a shopping mall. It is easlily accessible by taxi or metro. We loved the room on the 17th floor with a great view. Would definately stay here again if we get a good deal.

Stayed here in Feb for a business meeting. The hotel was clean and staff was friendly. The location is a little bit boring if you stay right by the hotel, but cab rides into the city are not that expensive and the hotel staff was really helpful in pointing out locations to find good restaurants and shopping, etc. The rooms were very comfortable and the nice thing about this location is that it's quiet and when hosting a business meeting there were not too many distractions so my attendees actually attended ;) while still being able to get into the city during free-time. There's a shopping center/mall right across the street that was nice with good stores and decent restaurants and the beach is just on the other side of the street. Even in Feb took a nice walk onto the beach. It was a nice distraction from the cold NE US weather. Breakfast buffet was good enough to fuel early sightseeing and if you stay on the club level the lounge is decently stocked. In general, this was an enjoyable stay at a great hotel and I high recommend if you're heading into Barca for business.

Excellent location for nearby convention centre, a 5 minute walk to beach so worth it if you are on business trip and want a quick breakaway, pleasant pool (closed early am but nobody stopped me using it anyway). Decent buffet breakfast, fair sized rooms, reasonable front desk and laundry service, solid all round business hotel. Would have given it 4 stars vs 3 but the area is high rise, concrete and ugly, and the street vibe is non-existent - in a city like Barcelona these are unforgivable !

If you are going to Barcelona for business and visiting the city is not top of your list, you can definitely make this hotel your night HQ.

PROS: amazing attentive service, great breakfast choice and products quality, facing the beach so perfect for an early/late swim or run along the shore, generous size rooms

CONS: paying wifi in the rooms, limited choice of amenities (I.e. no slippers & vanity set)

In my 10 years of being diamond HH, this hotel was my least favorite Hilton. I suppose part of it is my own fault for not doing my research. It was in an area of town better suited for business travelers and not a family vacation. It is in an area of town where it takes ages to get to anywhere else. We hated the walk to the beach. (They say 3 minutes, but more like 20 until you are actual on the sand from your room.) We hated that there are no balconies to enjoy the view. Well...there is 1 in the lounge. They close the lounge for 1 hour during the 12-1 for cleaning, only serve complimentary drinks from 6pm-8pm, and closes sharply at 8 pm. The sun hasn't even gone down yet. I would feel taken advantage of, if I had to pay for this amenity. There is a mall across the street to get what you need. The prices in the hotel are outrageously high (compared to London, Hong Kong...) and they have arrange a situation where you have no other choice. The pool also closes at 8pm, although they start telling you to leave at 7:40. I think I would have had a different experience as a business traveler.

I hope that we will have the chance to welcome you back to the hotel and offer you the high quality service that you expected and deserve.

Although rather out of town, this hotel has a lot of benefits. In the middle of July, the city is hot and mobbed with tourists and this is an oasis of calm, near a beach and a shopping centre with choice of reasonably priced restaurants. I had a bit of a tussle at check in as I am a Hilton Gold member and particularly wanted to get an upgrade to executive room as I wanted access to the executive lounge for a bit of afternoon peace and quiet (I had been offered a stand-by upgrade via email but this was not mentioned at check in) I had booked two delux rooms on bed and breakfast package for five nights for a family birthday break and had emailed to let them know it was a special occasion but the hotel had some sort of conference going on and so were reluctant to part with executive rooms. They did eventually manage to find me one executive room but said they could not allow my son access to the executive lounge as they would exceed capacity for breakfast - we were allowed to take one guest in the afternoon so it was no real hassle. Our executive room was right opposite the lounge and we observed that at all times (including breakfast) it was far from capacity - but I guess the hotel has a 'policy' about such things and we had a breakfast package (for the main restaurant) anyway. This might actually put me off using this hotel on my next planned trip to Barcelona. I stay often in central London Hilton Hotels and they seem to be able to use discretion with regard the hotel's policies. The metro station is nearby and by far the best way to get around - quick and cool. Also the tram to the centre of town runs from behind the shopping centre which is opposite. The pool area is good - although there was work going on around the adjacent terrace which was a bit noisy. The lobby bar prices were very expensive (just as well we wrangled for the exec lounge!) but this is pretty normal in hotels. All in all a good hotel. Hilton Gold members - you may have to haggle!

Room Tip: The 'relaxation' rooms are really nice
