Hotel although in the north of the city is convienient to get a round. Close to the underground, tourist bus stop and tram. There is an excellent shopping centre next door (Diagonal Mar) which has good restaurants allowing us to go out for the day and stroll next door for an evening meal. the hotel has 2 good swimming pools , an excellent breakfast and the rooms were spacious and comfortable. we had an adjoining room with our family.
Adequate room, I would say very modern, futuristic design. House staff service is outstanding. Distant from the city but very closed to Metro (Subway), Tram (electric train) and taxi. Metro is very ease to use. In general food at Barcelona is expensive, but breakfast at hotel is buffet and a great variety of alternatives to eat.
The hotel is less than 10 minutes walk to a very nice beach. The city center is more of a cab ride but no more than 10 euros one way.
Modern room with large bathroom. The rooftop deck has a nice view at night.
Negative is no tea kettle.
The room was a typical student room size which was perfect for us as we just needed somewhere to sleep. The rooftop pool was an added bonus. You could walk to most places or get the metro at a close station. Would recommend.
This hotel is very modern and clean. The hotel feels a bit sterile - as do the staff who didn't really make us feel welcome. Also when we asked if they could book tickets for Sagrada Familia they told us to use the room wifi to book it ourselves, though when we came back down as the wifi wasn't working they then seemed more than happy to book it for us. Surely in a 4 star hotel it should be part of the service to book tickets etc? We didn't try the food so can't comment - apart from the breakfast which was plentiful in amount and variety - scrambled eggs, bacon (well, the Spanish version of bacon) plus other hot food that is perhaps more suited to Spanish taste than English, i.e. broccoli and chick peas. Variety of bread and rolls, croissants, cold meats and cheeses, cereals, yoghurts, variety of fresh fruit and a whole table of cakes including chocolate covered doughnuts!
I arrived at Hotel at 10 pm in evening after working all day and was informed, no restaurant open, to late for Snacks at Bar even though bar open to 1 am
No room service for food
Clean room, friendly staff but disappointed with lack of evening meals.........
Occupying the area north of the Old Town, Sant Marti is the modern face of Barcelona. It includes the massive new International Convention Centre and the stunning Vila Olímpica with its Port Olímpic marina, built for the 1992 Olympics. At weekends its beach, restaurant, bars and clubs are hugely popular. Nearby, Parc de la Ciutadella is the city’s favourite green space, home to a zoo, boating lake, greenhouse and three museums.
