As a couple, we wanted to eat some tapas and drinks. Place is very elegant, waiters very nice and helpful, and food was cooked in a high quality way. Mejillones en salsa were very good! Tataki also was excellent! And bravas as well!

Been here for lunch and left quite happy. The food was great tasting, the service friendly and efficient, the ambience was great. The bill was a pleasant addition, 65€ for 5 people. The location is good, just across the park and very close to the archives de triumph

I visited this beautifull, small hotel, and I was very satisfied with their hospitality and kindness. The food in their restaurant was fantastic, it was the best paella I've ever eat. Atmosphere in this hotel is so nice, that you might think that you are visiting your friends. I hope that I will go there again.

Each time I visit Barcelona, i make sure to have a meal at La Ciudadela. It is consistently excellent. The fall menu is no different. The stuffed artichoke appetizer is one of the best apps i have ever eaten! Staff is very hospitable and the wine is great, too!

Excellent location right opposite a major park, with huge fountain- waterfall, boating pond and palm houses. Also near to old town and Arc de Triomf station. Room small but clean; small shower/bath with good hot water. Bed comfortable. Our outside room was noisy during evening with restaurant diners, but became quiet later. Excellent restaurant; great food. Staff were exceptionally friendly...

This was such a great little hotel. Loved the location...short cab ride or reasonable walk to main sights and close to Barcoleneta and a beautiful park across the street. My only complaint was there was no hair dryer 😕...but great price and great stay.

Lovely little hotel, great base for exploring Barcelona with a lovely park opposite. We stayed one night and enjoyed drinks from the bar and exploring nearby, short walk to Las Ramblas, lovely receptionist who gave us directions etc. Shower wasn't up to much at all but ok for a quick, cold 'wash'. We didn't complain as just staying one night.

Staying in Ciutadella / Vila Olimpica

Neighbourhood Profile
Ciutadella / Vila Olimpica
The sounds of Marina Olympica's rocking boats and clicking mastheads swaying to and fro set an impressive backdrop for Ciutadella and Villa Olimpica. Follow the aromas of garlic, wine, and fresh local fish to the various restaurants running along the marina. A grand bronze fish statue soaring high above serves as a beacon to those searching for the renowned Casino Barcelona or the extremely popular nightclubs which practically lie on the beach itself.
