Silken Diagonal Terrific

We arrived at 9:15 a.m. prepared to check baggage until the 3:00 p.m. official check-in time and were told the room was ready. The room was marvelous with glass walls on two sides. Auto drapes could be raised for view or lowered for privacy by pushing a button. The staff was very helpful, room service very fast, and the food was delicious. The hotel is located directly across from the Hop On/Off tour stop and we were able to purchase tickets at the hotel. For all this we paid a very reasonable price. We would definitely stay there again.

Don't assume hotels in Barcelona have a a free airport shuttle because it is noted online in the hotel info. Their reference to an airport shuttle is the nearby public transportation.

Awsum 1st trip to Spain

I went there for a conference and the hotel was just one block away from the place for conference. The hotel was right next to glories (a market place) and very close to beach. It was a wonderful experience staying there.

Hotel was amazing. Even better than the photos on the site. Staff were very helpful and polite. The hotel is located on one of the nicest streets. There is a shopping centre across the road, metro station 2mins walk, tour bus and tram stop outside. Can't wait to go back

Fantastic first trip to Barcelona!!

The hotel was fantastic, the room was spotlessly clean, and it was in a great location. The rooftop pool and terrace was a great bonus, and even knowing the pool was freezing, it was still brilliant. Barcelona is the best city I have been to! And this hotel was amazing value for money, and topped off a great trip. I would highly recommend this to anyone!!

There is no airport shuttle

The hotel was easy to find and beautiful. The only frustration we had was that our reason for choosing this hotel was because this site claimed it had a shuttle to the airport. We were angry when the front desk told us it did not. This added stress to the end of a fun trip.

Stylish clean but pool is too small

I stayed one night at this stylish hotel. Location was good and right next to metro giving access to all tourist attractions in Barcelona. Food was good at the restuarant and service was great! Pool on rooftop is too small so if you go there for the pool, you will be disappointed as it fits 4-6 people at a time an it is more like a bathtub/jaccuzi. Overall recommended for quality/service/location/ price
