This hotel is quite far out but on tram line, bus route and 2 open top tour routes. Massive shopping building next door. Lots of local places to eat.
We had sea views which were lovely. We were a group of friends - the girls who shared remarked because of the style of room you need to be quite good friends (you walk through the bathroom to get to the beds. There were doors on the loo and shower but they were glass cubicles.) The shower was lovely with lots of jets.
Take time to relax by rooftop pool. Although cocktails up there were hit and miss (a strawberry daquari with no strawberry and a kir royals with aniseed).
We couldn't use the other pool as it was booked by a private group on both afternoons/evenings.
Breakfast was expensive but delicious. Well worth it if you have time. Otherwise visit the cafe over the road - great coffee there.
Overall a good choice for a girlie weekend.
Nice location , only 300 meters from the beach and nice restaurants and not far away from the center. Room was very small for the three of us, one night the AC didn't work and couldn't sleep well. Pool very small and always full. Otherwise ok.
We were satisfied with the accommodation (3 star more than 4 star) but we had a hiccup with picking up the keys for the apartment - beaware the office that holds the keys are a fair distance from the accommodation itself (we thought we had to pick up the keys from the hotel opposite the apartment). Our return flight was in the evening so after the 11.30 am checkout there is no where to store our luggage - we couldnt extend our stay as someone else was checking into our apartment - so this was a bit tricky with our 4 children.
"Ask for park view. Huge difference with other side"
Make arrangements w hotel to arrive early, or you will wait for your room for hours.
I requested park view on reservation, asked for it on check in, and still, they gave me street view! Had to change rooms. It was available.
Service to client is NOT a priority. Front desk personnel is polite but ineffective!
The room was extremely hot when I arrived. AC was not run in preparation to my arrival. It took several hours to make room comfortable.
The hotel is far away from tourist attractions.
Great location of hotel, walking distance from the beach and the sangrada familia.
Rooms are a bit small but okay for a few days.
Very clean and has 24 hour reception which is handy if coming back after a night out.
Safe area highly recommend
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.
