“No free WIFI - So not a great Hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

It is imperative that all hotels make wifi free as the oxygen we breathe. I always make sure it has wifi but unfortunately the Hotel had free wifi only in the reception - Rooms wifi cost 20 Euro's - crazy. Had to configure the laptop and iPhone after being connected to the Hilton IT which was a pain. The next door occupants were banging on the walls which made sleep quality not that great. The best part of the Hotel is that Starbucks and a local Tapas joint is just right outside the hotel.

Anna was a star though suggesting the best spots to go for Spanish Paella

Stayed here at the end of a road trip of Northern Spain. Location has easy access to transport to the downtown/tourist areas. Very comfortable room and great bed. Staff were all very friendly and informative, provided IT assistance without any problem. Was easy to find when entering the city by rental car and would certainly stay here again.

Location in the business district isn't as bad as it originally sounds if your are a leisure visitor, which we were
5-7min walk from the Maria Cristina metro station on green line L3 and 30mins by cab from the airport

Quick and friendly check in with advice on what to see and how to get there
The Hop on, Hop off tourist bus is a good suggestion and there is a stop just outside the hotel, so extremely convenient if you go for that option - otherwise, get yourself a T10 metro ticket
All of this was advise from our friendly check in clerk

Room was better than we expected to be honest - you expect a standard Hilton business room, but this place had enough to give you an impression of individualism

Only downside was the breakfast
Ok, it's standard fare, but what disappointed was the lack of attentive staff
Pleasant enough, but food and juices weren't being topped up and if you wanted tea or coffee, good luck figuring out how to serve it yourself

Put that aside, it's a place I would visit again and would recommend to others
Good for business, couples and families with teenagers, not so sure for families with little ones tho

It is a business hotel and as such, located in the office area .
Take in account that even that the metro station is 5 minutes' walk, its takes over 20 minutes to reach Plaza Cataluña.
Very good service, small to medium size rooms, Breakfast is Ok but repetitive in its choices.

Overall recommended hotel

Room Tip: Hig floor rooms will be quiter

This is a nice business hotel with the average amenities. There is a nice little restaurant next to it that serves breakfast/ lunch/ dinner, Piscolabes. Room extras lacking, so if you want more than some instant coffee in your room, you will have to go out or order in. Hotel staff were very helpful and will help you put together local attraction packages. Buy a subway ticket for 10 trips, much cheaper at 10 Euros than individual trips. Rambla is a short subway ride away, as is Magic Mountain. Good Italian restaurant around the corner in next block and a Starbucks on the next corner. Decent beds and cheaper/ quieter than downtown.

Stayed here whilst at a conference. Served it's purpose. Rooms were spacious and clean. The bed was comfortable. Breakfast was adequate. Location was a little out of town but since I was at a conference it was fine. The pool area was crowded and generally unkept. Dirty plates and glasses were strewn everywhere. The restaurant was hideously expensive and the food average. As far as business hotels go I would stay here again. As a tourist I would avoid.

I like to stay in this hotel when I travel for Business to Barcelona. It is conveniently located in to th e North of the Avenida Diagonal, next to the Illa shopping Mall and El Corte Inglés. They have a very nice terrace in front of the hotel for afternoon drinks. The rooms are modern and well lit.
