Centrally located to most of the sights in the city. Hotel was clean and neat; breakfast buffet was a bit on the expensive side, but selection/quality/taste of the food was great and was very convenient. The only English Language television available was news (CNN, CNBC, Bloomberg, Sky News & Sky International), but I didn't come to Barcelona to watch television. :-) Front desk personnel were very helpful recommending a great restaurant (Moncho's), storing our luggage until our trip to the airport and calling us a cab.
I can't wait to visit Barcelona again and will stay at the Hotel Covadonga!
Nice, modern hotel convenient distance from the airport (note: shuttle bus only operates in the morning). Regular public bus service leaves from stop behind hotel to the city centre. Very good value hotel, helpful staff and also recommend buffet breakfast.
Fantastic experience. Staff was helpful in every aspect. Helpful with directions, getting tickets to enter Barcelona"s fantastic venues. Fantastic Sunday Brunch and a good breakfast offering in the restaurant. I travel a lot and this was one of the most pleasing hotels overall that I have stayed at.
We stayed here as were going to a convention in the convention centre in Diagonal Mar, which happened to be just next door. With the Diagonal Mar shopping centre across the street and the beach and ocean just down the street the hotel could not have been located any better. The pool area and terrace were beautiful and the rooms were very clean and spacious. I would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone staying in the diagonal area of Barcelona
Loved everything about this hotel. The space station theme was a lot of fun and gave it a really modern and sleek feeling. The room was a great size, comfortably appointed and clean. Ultra-modern furniture and amenities. The common areas (lobby, restaurant, business center, etc) were awesome. Staff was very friendly. Location was fantastic too, perfect for those taking trains to/from other parts of the country or who want easy access to the Metro. Also perfectly reasonable walking distance to Pca Espanya, La Rambla, etc. We walked everywhere from here and while some places were a bit of a trek it was worth it. My wife couldn't stop laughing at how giddy the little kid in me got over all the little space-themed details throughout the hotel.
Room fab, comfy bed and pillow. Bath plus shower. Good hairdryer. The ladies on reception were the most cheerful, friendly and helpful that I have ever come across in all my years of travel. Breakfast was fab too, plenty of choice. Outside of city centre but L4 takes you straight to the centre and also the beaches. Would definitely stay there again and will recommend it.
This was one of the best hotel experiences I've had - ever, taking into consideration the condition of the hotel, the room, the service, the location, the peace and quiet, and the price point. I've stayed in this same area (different hotel) before and I know how difficult it is to find a combination of all these. Note, this is not a super touristy area, but close to everything - in other words, you have the peace and quiet of a safe neighborhood but the convenience of being close to everything.
I showed up early (my plane landed early) and they easily offered me a room that they had available at the time and made no big deal of it. They often gave me practical suggestions, and were helpful at all times.
