I was in Barcelona several years ago and noticed the Pullman Barcelona Skipper. This hotel has everything going in its favor. This is a great location very near nightclubs and restaurants. The hotel is next to the beach. The hotel is only a few blocks from the pier or Las Ramblas. The rooms are fantastic with incredible decor. The pool is beautiful as is the courtyard. Even the complimentary toiletries were fantastic. This is one of my favorite hotels in the world. It is almost worth a trip to Barcelona to stay here.

Room Tip: Higher floors with a balcony

We stayed here with friends and family for two nights at the end of April and had a great time. I picked this hotel because I thought it was very close to the cruise terminal, how ever it was slightly further away than I thought so we still needed to get a taxi which meant an added cost. The hotel is great and have no complaints but it is not in a great position if you do not like walking or find walking difficult as it is about half an hour away from the centre of Barcelona but is right on the beach . The hotel is very modern but does have a lot of ugly concrete pillars in the main reception /restaurant area, but that is just my taste. The staff were great and very helpful and when there was an error with the beds (singles/double) in two of our rooms it was rectified straight away. Evening meals were very good but there was not a great choice and slightly costly, breakfast was great with a good choice and great quality of food, even had Champaign if you wanted it (all free). Drinks quite expensive, we paid 4 euros for a small beer but that’s probably normal for this stranded of hotel and there did not appear to be great amount of alternative places to eat or drink close by. Bedrooms very nice with a huge bed and large bathroom with separate bath and walk in shower. Overall very nice place to stay and highly recommended, just make sure it’s in the right area for you as it is slightly away from the city centre but great if you want to be close to the beach as well.

Room Tip: some of the rooms looked over the sea and had balconies but do not know at what extra cost these a...

Second trip to this hotel - lovely position just one street from the beach, and five minutes walk from Porto Olimpico. Check in nice and easy, given room 209 ... quite a dark room and it overlooks the Research Centre across the road.

Nicely laid out and quite roomy - although the aircon takes a long time to work. Bed extremely comfortable and a pillow menu is availabe if needed - I found the ones provided to be very comfortable

I had major issues with the door lock - and I suspect I was not alone ... the staff seemed all too aware of a problem and came up to the room armed with three or four duplicates ... in all the lock failed to work 7 times in just a day ... Reception staff on the whole are excellent

Rooftop pool area is excellent - with fantastic views of the golden "fish" and the beach area near the port.

Only had breakfast at the hotel - the usual buffet fare and prciy at around €23 ... but no butter available, the coffee was incredibly weak and insipid ... and who's idea was it to "cook" the sausages until they were pink and then let them stew in tomatoes?

All in all - I was a little disappointed ...

Room Tip: Can't help with a good room ... but be aware that lower rooms in the "1 to 11" range w...

This hotel is really really lovely, the staff are extremely helpful, the rooms are beautiful and very comfortable and the breakfast buffet is excellent. Sadly, the marina where the hotel is situated is not what it used to be. If you are thinking of eating in the marina I have one word of advice - don't! You will run the gauntlet of cheap and nasty "tapas" style restaurants with very aggressive staff and end up getting a cab into the gothic quarter or similar to eat - save yourself the experience and head there to start with! Such a shame as the hotel is faultless

Room Tip: This higher up your room is the better view of the sea

Great position, clean and friendly service. Beautiful pool on the rooftop, breakfast amazing with a great selection of fresh food. Really close to the beach, bars and a few steps away from the Metro. City center is only 4 stops away. Recommended!

We spent 5 days in Barcelona, and chose the hotel based on its location and other reviews.
Few steps away from the beach, or the metro station leading anywhere downtown in approx 15 mns.
We had a really enjoyable family suite, with great spaces. Quality of the service was good, the rooms was clean with modern design, and a memorable bed.
Breakfast on the terrasse is great, as well as relaxing moment on the pool over the roof.

Rooms were lovely. Would recommend a sea view room.
Lovely staff, very helpful.
Located a bit outside the city centre but, very easy to walk into.
Didn't get up in time for breakfast but heard that it was good.
