I was in Barcelona to attend an event at the convention center. Originally I booked different hotel a cross the street from the venue which cost twice as much. But when I called asking for an early check in, they were pretty rude and not nice about it so I switched my reservation to Vincci Bitt. I'm glad I did it. Vincci Bitt charges 30 Euro for early check in, where another hotel told me I had to buy an another night. The room was clean and specious, very modern and stylish. Extra 2 block walk from the convention center was not a problem at all.
This hotel is classed as 4 star. The detail was not there to justify it. Staying on the 5th floor there was chewing gum on the lobby floor outside the lift for 2 days. The walls were paper thin hearing noises from next door for several hours each night.
The Silken Diagonal is a modern hotel close to the Torre Agbar within about a 20 minute walk from Sagrada Familia and close to the Glories metro station. The staff were very helpful and the food good, although the beans at breakfast could have been warmer! The rooms were bright and comfortable and had a kettle and cups for in room refreshments. There was also a minibar. The see through bathroom pod in the room was a little disconcerting at first, but it made the room seem bigger and the auto blinds were fun. House keeping was excellent and there is much to recommend this hotel. There was even a tiny pool on the roof, although we did not have the time to use it.
Excellent overall - breakfast is second to none! Perfect for a short family break, rooms are spacious and cleaned daily.............................................................................................................................................................
This was our first trip to Barcelona so we did not know what to expect. While traveling to the hotel, we didn't expect to arrive at such a nice hotel. The staff greeted us immediately and were extremely helpful. We were early and had to leave our bags in a luggage room, which they assured would be kept safe (they were). The front desk gave us advice on the best means of travel and quickest routes through the city. The hotel itself was very clean. Our room was a little warm but we didn't have any trouble adjusting the temperature. Location of the hotel was nice, as it was close to the beach. We were more interested in going to La Boqueria and sights further north but the hotel is only a short walk to the Metro station. Overall, we were extremely pleased with our stay.
