Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The location of the Barcelona Intercontinental is rather awkward, situated outside the city center. Returning to the hotel from the nearby shopping mall at night poses safety concerns, necessitating the use of a taxi. On one occasion, a taxi driver became agitated upon realizing how little she earned from our trip, even insisting that we pay the minimum charge of 7 euros instead of the meter charge 4 euros. Despite her proficient English, I asked the doorman to clarify the driver's request, which she eventually withdrew. However, another guest waiting at the hotel's entrance was less fortunate as no taxi was available. During check-in, the front desk staff neglected to inquire whether we preferred a twin or double bed, assigning us a double bed room at the end of the corridor instead. Despite this oversight, Sergi, went above and beyond to assist us. He demonstrated exceptional helpfulness and patience, repeatedly moving heavy luggage to ensure our satisfaction. Additionally, he offered us an umbrella without us even realizing it was raining outside. Kamel's warm hospitality made us feel at home, while concierge members Gema and Mara provided valuable information. Gema even remembered to return a forgotten power bank upon our departure. Yet not all concierge staff were equally competent. One member failed to check thoroughly whether the museum was indeed located in the nearby city, resulting in unnecessary expenses of around 100 euros for train and taxi fares to nowhere. My sister had followed his advice to visit the church first, leading to disappointment and frustration. Furthermore, the hotel's instant service operators failed to fulfill their duties promptly. Despite assuring us that they would clear the mini-bar, it took until the third request for them to do so. Upon completion, the staff member left our room with a displeased expression. Later on the same evening, we were surprised to find two glasses and bottles of water placed on our bedside table when we returned to the room after speaking with the concierge. This was not provided to us on our first day, and even if it is standard practice, such services should ideally be completed before 6 p.m. It is concerning when staff enter our room while we are inside, and it poses a possible safety issue when we are out, as no staff should enter the room without our permission. When I raised these issues with the duty manager who simply dismissed them as mere comments without providing any explanation. However, Anna from guest services showed a more proactive approach by addressing my concerns and providing at least some explanations which although I still could not be convinced. Such service discrepancies continued, with the morning wake-up call scheduled for 6:45 a.m. not being executed until 6:53 a.m. It would matter as we have to hurry to catch the train schedule. Frankly speaking, without the aforementioned staff, this hotel would be the worst Intercontinental experience I've had.

The hotel is very nice. My only regret is that the neighborhood does not have ANY restaurants nearby making the hotel your only choice. Breakfast is a whopping 75 euro per person plus VAT. After paying up for the hotel room this is a slap in the face.

The Intercontinental Barcelona is a wonderful hotel for a stay in the city. The lobby, bar, restaurant - all public areas are beautifully decorated and comfortable. The rooms are a very nice size with new, modern bathrooms. The staff is exceptional from bell staff, reception, concierge, restaurant to housekeeping. Everyone tries to accommodate and provide excellent service. We have stayed at other 5* properties and this is by far the best!
