Secret hotel

Any ideas on this top secret hotel?

A unique 5-star property with all modern facilities and exceptional individual service. Within easy access to Barcelona city centre by public transport in less than 30minutes. Guestrooms are luxurious with over-sized comfortable beds, and the majority of rooms have stunning views over the city of Barcelona.

Hola Pip!

We all had fun on our last 'round' of secret hotel guessing. In the end, the poster decided that it was too far. You haven't given us a lot of information to go on but I would guess:

Gran Hotel La Florida

Here's a link to the previous thread on secret hotels:

No I think it's Hesperia Tower. You can tell by the number of Trip Advisor reviews - 342.

Asrkennedy,

How would the number of Tripadvisor reviews lead you to conclude what the mystery hotel is?

BTW, the Hesperia Tower is not truly in Barcelona. It's in a very industrial area called L'Hospitalet de Llobregat (near the airport). Not too many great views from there.

My guess is the Hesperia tower too. Or maybe the hotel by Toyo Ito in the Fira area (can't remember its name now).

Anyway, "within easy access to Barcelona city centre by public transport in less than 30 minutes" means it is not even IN Barcelona!

Gigis_mum, because they tell you on the Top Secret Hotel description how many reviews it got on tripadvisor and how many stars it has. So if you look on Tripadvisor, the only 5 star hotel with 342 reviews is Hesperia. Plus, it matches the description.
