When you choose Novotel, you are expecting a certain standard. This Hotel has that standard, but there are some flaws.
The rooms, beds and stuff like that are ok and are fully living up to the general Novotel standard.
Unfortunately the breakfast does not live up to that standard. The food is again, ok, but there are flaws, the biggest one beeing that they are not cleaning the room while the breakfast is ongoing. This is a very big hotel, so there are quite a few guests. When you are sitting and trying to enjoy your breakfast you will also be in 'company' of the last guest at your table as floor is filled with breadcrumb and other leftovers from the previous guests. We have stayed at several Novotel hotels, but never with this lack of standard on the breakfast.
There is also a fitness room, but this room is to say it mildly, sparsely equipped. However if you like running on machines, they have 3 of them.
There is a swimming pool on the topfloor, where you can enjoy a breathtaking view of Barcelona. But at our stay the pool was freezing cold, so we did not use it. You will get towels from the lifeguard.
There is free wifi, but when we stayed it was somewhat unstable and most of our devices where regularely thrown of the net.
But otherwise a good hotel. It is placed jus a few meters from the Glories mall and the Glories metro station.
