“great city view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

On my honeymoon I stayed with the Mrs. at hesperia tower we took the discounted rate with no breakfast but the staff was good to us and quickly upraded us to a room on the 21st floor we had a lovely view of the city and the room was large and very clean. I would reccomend the hotel.

The only drawback was the fact that its in the corner of the town and travelling by the metro rail is the only option. The flipside is that its close to the airport.

Stayed February 2012, traveled as a couple

I managed to squeeze in here at the last minute for a conference i was attending and all they had was a smoking room so i can't really comment on the room as i was lucky to get it. The hotel were brilliantly helpful getting me in and the room was nice apart from the smell of stale smoke.
The hotel itself is huge and perfect for big conferences but if you want something close to the centre forget it - it's miles away.
The service was good and all the food we had was really tasty.

This is a luxurious hotel with all the amenities you'd expect. Location is pretty far from the center, but there is plenty of free parking around the hotel (garage is expensive!). The hotel has a free airport shuttle service, which can be handy. Rooms are great, but free wifi is not accessible everywhere in the room, so that can be a problem.

We were in Barcelona in April 2012. We were looking for a great hotel at a good price. If don't mind doing a 25-30 minutes metro ride to get to the city center, this hotel is an excellent choice.The nearest metro station is about 3-5 minutes walk. This hotel is located in a very quiet neighborhood. Our room was very clean, spacious and luxurious. Be didn't had breakfast at the hotel, because it was very expansive (it think around 18-20 Euro).
There was a free shuttle service to the airport and to downtown.

We recommend this hotel. The service was excellent.

Our stay in Barcelona was fantastic. The city is beautiful with loads to do and the whole trip was topped off with the wonderful Hesperia Tower Hotel.

The impressive structure of the Hesperia Tower is about 7 miles from the city centre. However just opposite the Hotel is a hospital and on the far side of their car park, approximately 200 yards from the Hotel doors, is a metro station with a line that will take you right into the centre of the city (20 mins). The Hotel do offer a free shuttle bus service too at periodic times throughout the day, however if you want to get around town and see the sights I would recommend getting a travel pass for the metro, we got a 3 day travel pass for around 19 Euros each and we definitely got our money’s worth.

Back to Hesperia, the room was immaculate, stylish and finished with high quality fixtures and fittings. The bathroom was stunning with lots of glass, double sinks, massage multi-jet power shower and useful toiletries including toothbrush and paste, razor and cream, shampoo, shower gel and sponge (very handy if you are only taking hand luggage like us). The bed was very comfortable and a range of pillows were on offer. We didn’t have room service in the end but the menu looked great and not extortionate. The breakfast was fresh, varied and delicious. There was cooked available (including baked beans!) although we stuck to continental, which was superb. But the most impressive thing was our view!! WOW!! We had a deluxe room on the 19th floor and the view from our panoramic window was mind blowing! And at night was just as breathtaking.

We aren’t the biggest shoppers but if you are you will not be disappointed, La Rambla offered a huge range of retailers but we enjoyed The Marina at the bottom end of the road more. I would also recommend the Gaudi Apartments Casa Batlló if you at all interested in art, design or architecture, also the Cathedral Sagrada Familia and Gaudi Park Park Güell (though be warned there is quite a walk from the Metro station to the park and a lot of it is up hill).


Again this Hotel is great and Barcelona is a beautiful city, we will definitely go back!

Room Tip: You want a view of the city! the higher the better!

If you don't mind taking the subway, this is a good value for the price you pay - excellent rooms, very modern interior design, splendid hotel. But very expensive bar and restaurant and no supermarket around to buy anything.
Close to the subway, 5 min walking distance.
If I'll go again to Barcelona, I'll probably choose something closer to downtown - it takes around 1/2 hr to get from this hotel to any major attractions.
PS. If going to Barcelona, don't miss Monjuic!!:)

This has been our second visit to this hotel and we were not disappointed. The Executive Suite is great for a family - the additional toilet is always appreciated.
The gym is well equipped and there is great access to the city via the underground.
A point to note is that in order for your child to receive the reduced breakfast rate you need to book it on arrival.
