I stayed with family of 4, two adults and two teens for 5 nights on a room on 16 floor. The view from the room to Torre Agbar and Sagrada Familia was amazing and the room was great with a sofabed. The Hotel itself was pretty modern, The only problem was the wifi wifi (free but there was no connection!), we reported the issue and they try to fix but never works. The rooftop bar was really nice, the GYM also was great with a nice view of the city. The breakfast is very good. The hotel is in a good area and Glories shopping center is just across the street.

To end our visit in Spain we had booked this hotel on other recommendations on Trip Advisor and we were not led astray. As a family of two adults and two children under 12 the room was spacious, comfortable and the view spectacular overlooking the city. The facilities were excellent especially the bar and pool on the top floor. There was also a games area for the children. The Breakfast Buffet was well laid out and the variety was fantastic. We found the location of the hotel to be ideal, the metro and bus services were just outside and also across the road was the Glories Shopping Area with great shops and restaurants to suit all. Two members of staff on reception, Estefania and Ana were really helpful and we would like to thank them both for making our stay. We will be returning to Barcelona next year and will be staying at this hotel.

Room Tip: Higher Floors have the best views

The rooms in this Novotel are superior to many in the chain. Upper floors have good views, and the staff is multi-lingual, efficient and very friendly. Roof terrace, bar and pool are a particular treat. Nearby is the Nuevo Rambla, a wonderful walking street with good shopping and great restaurants. Just be aware that this amazing city has much to offer closer to the city center, the Rambla and the Gothic Quarter. You can get there, and value for the money here may make it worth the trek. Clean, large rooms, modern decor, great air conditioning.

Room Tip: Upper floors have better views and are quieter.

It is pleasant to hear that your experience at Novotel Barcelona City did meet your expectations. It is true that our hotel is located near a shopping mall and close to the city center and all famous sights of Barcelona. The metro station is only 5 minutes walking distance from the hotel, tramway and bus station are only 2 minutes walking distance from the hotel. We also have a taxi rank, as you said in your comment, that allows guests to move around the city.

We are also glad to know that you have enjoyed your stay at our Novotel, It is always a pleasure to be part of your visit to the city.

We had two families of 4 who stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. The hotel is in a nice area with Glories Shopping area across the street. Basically a mall with nice high end stores and restaurants. The hotel was not an easy walk to the sightseeing areas. The Sagrada Familia was a pretty good 20 minute walk. La Rambla and Placa Espanya were not that close and you need to take a taxi. About 8-12 Euros each way based on my experience.

The Hotel itself was pretty modern. We had a high floor room with a sofabed, and it was a pretty small room. The rooftop bar was really nice, and we were able to watch a few World Cup matches there. The Pool was pretty small and cold the days we were there so we did not get a chance to use it. The staff at the hotel seems pretty nice and helpful. We had Breakfast included in the rate, but only got to use it twice. The food options were pretty good. The beach was about a 2 mile walk from the hotel, and takes about 25 minutes based on my experience.
It cost me $38 Euros to get here by Taxi, but the return to the Airport cost $48 Euros. Not sure why it was different as my return was 3am and there was not traffic on the road.
The hotel pricing was reasonable, and that may cause me to stay there again if I go to Barcelona.

Excellent value for money, great facilities including rooftop swimming pool on excellent roof terrace with bar (although pool is small). Staff friendly and helpful. Rooms clean and spacious with good size bathroom.
Good position with 3 tram lines, the metro and bus routes within 150 yards of hotel.
Location is Glories and the views from our room on 18th floor were magnificent with the Torre Agbar virtually next door and just to the left of that a good view of the Sagrada Família
Will certainly go back
Only black mark was that someone pinched my Maui jim sunglasses whilst I snoozed on a sunbed but can hardly blame hotel for that!

Room Tip: Odd numbers for best view and highest possible floor
