Good Hotel only 20 Euros in a Taxi from the airport. Great views from the higher rooms good place to spend a night but nothing to do near by. The down stairs bar was very good but the one on the roof was closed when we visited.

On very short notice I booked the first nice hotel I came across on Trip Advisor that was near the airport. This was the Hesperia Towers, a 5-star hotel for a 3-star price. When I told my Spanish colleague where I was staying he said “Wow” as it has a very good reputation.

Check in was very smooth with four desks open and only a few guests in the queue. English was not a problem. My super cheap deal included breakfast, which unfortunately I could not take advantage of as I had very early morning starts. However I had to extend my stay by an extra day and did finally get to have the breakfast which was excellent. A really good range of hot and cold food, fresh orange juice and coffee brought to your table and fresh fruit.
The lifts are ordered by touch panel, which tells you which of the four glass sided lifts to take.

The hall ways are rich materials and beautiful mahogany wood, though I did notice a number of dings and dents, one of the downsides of having guests with luggage trundling past such expensive materials. The room itself was in two parts, an entry foyer with the closet and bathroom plus shower of it, with floor to ceiling mirrors and hidden storage cupboards. All black marble, sumptuous wood and mirrors. It felt expensive and was designed to impress.

The bedroom is large with plenty of desk space, a mini-bar and a display cabinet with nice touches like a cork screw, fine wine glasses and a bottle opener. The TV had lots of channels including a number in English like the BBC, CNN, Bloomberg etc. Wifi Internet was free, but dreadfully slow, even when showing 5 bars. I at best managed about 15 kb/s and it reminded me of dial up modem days.

I ate at the internal restaurant “Bouquet” and my meal of local squid for starter and a thick steak were both perfect. With two glassed of house red and a coffee in addition to the two courses this came to 56 €. The maitre de and the wine waiter were both very helpful, in fact all of the service was very good indeed.

So I would stay here again, as long as the price remains reasonable. It appears that the recession is hurting them hard, my room cost me as little at £78 a night and can be seen on Hotels.com and similar sites for heavily discounted rates.

Room Tip: Higher floors ahve better views, looking back over the city is preferred

We have stayed there with my boyfriend and it was a lovely place to live. Big hotel, but never too crowded. Biggest breakfasts I have seen, everything super clean and the rooms are just magnificent, simple, modern, well equipped. Restaurant on the top floor has great views and delicious food. Close to metro station and with extremely helpful staff.

We got a good deal on this hotel ,and as others have commented it is on the edge of the town and a 30 minute metro journey in. However the metro is a few minutes walk and its direct into the heart of the city. Should you stay out all night and miss the metro back a taxi was 13 euros, and took ten minutes.
The plus side is that this is a nice hotel, clean comfortable rooms, with great views, and a stones throw to the airport. They had rooms available for us at 10.00 am , and a free shuttle is available at certain times both to and from the airport.
We did not take up the hotels offer of breakfast, and instead walked into the nearby housing estate, where we got good food and coffee. There are local restaurants within the vicinity and the one we ate at was good.

Room Tip: Ask for a non smoking floor if thats what you prefer.

Nice Hotel with luxurious rooms and suites, pity the top restaurant is no longer available. The hotel is half way from airport to city, give a good compromise between the relaxing staying and affordable prices compared to the prices in the center much higher for rooms far away from Hesperia.
With a taxi, in from of the Hotel always 374 cabs ready , you can be in Barcelona center in 10 minutes and enjoy the city as much as you like.
Great breakfast and really clear hotel, reception good.
Worth it !

Bed was comfortable and appeared clean but carpet was filthy and very stained. And there was a 14 Euro charge to use the pool and spa,. Location is about a 30 minute easy metro ride from the center of action in Barcelona. We only stayed for 1 night to be have access to the hotel airport shuttle for a morning flight. If getting to the airport for an early morning flight is a concern, this might be a good option - other than that, look elsewhere.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of Barcelona, other than that ypur view will be of the local hospital an...

Got a lastmute city break to Barcelona and stayed 2 nights in this hotel. A tall modern architectual hotel which is on the end of the Red metro line (a little too far in my opinion from the centre) but acceptable, good rate not the cheapest by a long way but very good standard. Polite and helpful staff, breakfast was a buffet which was fantastic (again check your hotel booking as paying on the day proved expensive), Free shuttle to airport . The tower was closed as a restaurant and now is used as meeting rooms we never got to go to the top which was dissapointing. Beautiful city/sea/airport view. Enjoyed very much

Room Tip: Go as high as possible!
