Weekend break with friends

Very disappointed in the bar service received from the pool staff during our stay - very rude! Also very disappointed with the lack of sunbeds around both pools, we chose the hotel as it had advertised having 2 pools however they are small and there were not enough sunbeds. The rook top pool closed at 6pm to hotel residents for a private party which is annoying as we had arranged to have pre- drinks at the end of our 2 day stay at the hotel. I did give feedback to the reception team re this and we were provided with complimentary drinks (cheap cava), however I do not think that this was satisfactory. We had a medical emergency on the Sunday morning and the hotel receptionist was very slow in helping us to call a doctor. There was one male receptionist who was very helpful in locating a fan that we needed (as a result of the air conditioning system in the room being broken). I did not rate this hotel as having 5 stars.

this hotel should NOT be rated as a 5* uncomfortable pillows and bed, air conditioning not controlable, shower tap lose, on a Sunday not all bathroom items are provided, had to ask for them, room service food below average standard. Breakfast have no time to serve with a smile and breakfast is poor quality. bar/lunch & dinner staff are friendly and the quality of food is excellent. We enjoyed the stay only because the hotel is in a convenient place and close to the beach.

Barcelona in style

The Pullman Hotel is very well situated. It is very modern and clean hotel. The staff are very friendly. We went on a long weekend to Barcelona and a fantastic time. The hop on hop off Bus is about 2 min away and the heart of Barcelona is within walking distance (about 20 min).

Excellent hotel, go for it!

We had a greta time at the hotel, the staff were very helpful indeed and the entire site kept to a high standard. You will definitely enjoy your stay, just be careful at night when walking back to the hotel as there are some not so welcoming pickpockets and 'working ladies' close by...

Compliments a great city

This hotel is superb, next to a beach and metro station, you couldn't t wish for more. Friendly, helpful staff, good food. Wish there was an indoor pool for off season visits and the sauna was included in the price but, overall experience is excellent.
