"A nice stay in a good location"
I stayed in this hotel next to the Barcelona Forum where I was attending a conference. Convenient location, and not far to walk to the metro station. The tram stops right outside the hotel, and there is a taxi stand 20 meters from the hotel entrance. The overall service in the hotel was quite good. Nice breakfast, helpful hotel employees, great roof top bar with great views and good drinks, and my room on the 21st floor had a magnificent ocean view which really made my stay. Now a few let-downs. The walls between the rooms must be made of cardboard. I travel a lot, but I have never stayed in a hotel room where I could hear everything - everything - my neighbor did. I could (involuntarily) listen in on phone conversations, hear what happened in the bath room, hear footsteps over the floor, hear the beeps from the room safe opening/closing... When my neighbor decided that it was a good idea to blast hop-hop music really loudly at 2.30 am, it was unbearable. I received prompt help from the reception/security who came up and talked to the "musician". Overall a nice stay, but this hotel would be better with some soundproofing.
"Very convenient for the congress centre."
This is a functional business hotel, very well situated for the Congress centre (it is literally around the corner, you can walk there under cover). It is also surrounded by the interesting modern architecture of the 22@Barcelona area and is very close to the sea. There is a huge shopping mall just over the road. Nearby trams and metros are good for travel into the old city. Don't attempt to walk in - it is a long way! The decor is modern, with an interesting retro vibe in the lobby. The rooms are comfortable and spacious with good, comfortable beds. Would have been nice to have more than just business TV channels in English. Also annoying not to have free wifi in the rooms - only in the business centre and public areas. Staff are helpful and efficient. The breakfast buffet is good, but only begins at 7.00 on weekdays and 8.00 at the weekend. Breakfast room service starts at 6.30 with a 2.50 euro surcharge. On the downside - no coffee or tea in the rooms, very noisy airco system and if there is a weekend music event in the plaza outside it can be very noisy until very late. Colleagues with rooms on this side said they had a very bad night's sleep, so I counted myself lucky to be overlooking the shopping mall not the sea or the plaza. The swimming pool on the 13th floor looks nice, but I didn't see any changing areas - I did not fancy walking through the bar draped in a towel!
"An interesting hotel - beware of concerts that go on til 3am"
An interesting hotel located adjacent to the conference centre, which is removed from the centre – but there is a nearby metro. The Spanish friendliness and unfussiness applies throughout – a good bar on the 13th floor. Good selection at breakfast, which finishes at 10am. Exit from lifts quite dim – floor location errors possible. Only complaint is the sound proofing – a concert, held perhaps in the conference centre, went on until 3.30am!
"Swam laps with my grown up son, jumped on metro ...."
Favorite part was jumping in the 13th floor sensational pool after a hot day of sightseeing. Room was bigger than hotel room closer to Ramblas. 5 minutes to the beach. Excellent staff and very proactive security guard. 10 euros for a taxi to Ramblas area if you don't take the metro. Mall across street has laundry - think 3rd floor. Walk a block or two and you'll find neighborhood coffee places etc.
"Clean, tidy and modern hotel"
Impressive modern building located in a residential area of Barcelona. There is a big shopping centre opposite. We checked in a room on the 18th floor. Great views of the city including the Sagrada Familia. The room had a nice green marble bathroom, with all the amenities. One thing that annoys me in hotels is that there is no iron/ironing board. In a Marriott I would expect having one in the room. But it wasn't a big deal, as I wasn't on a business trip. There is a beautiful swimming pool on the 13th floor with amazing views of the sea and the city. At night the bar is open until 2 am and it was very relaxing to have a few drinks after a busy day sightseeing. The lobby in the hotel is impressive. The staff very welcoming and professional. I will most definitely stay on my next trip to Barcelona and I recommend this hotel to anyone.
