“breathtaking location”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

stayed here now for the second time, last time 6 years ago - the location is just wonderful and the rooms are spacious, clearly worthwhile taking a sea/city view room - pricing is fair for what you get -
good reception service , the restaurant is good but has seen better days .. the spa area is clean, but a little run down - the general impression is that the hotel needs a little bit of money to invest to give it a soft lift again

Great views from the mountain top but very far from city centre so go if you need privacy and an amazing view of Barcelona from the infinity pool which is great, but beware the room lighting is terrible hardly any lights you feel like waking in a dim lit room and the wind noise can really make your night terrible the walls and windows are not sound proof and you could listen to terrifying noise all nights.

Room Tip: Stay away from Mountain view rooms they have really horrifying sound in the night created due to win...

Forget about staying in the touristy parts of this beautiful city - stay up in the mountain just 20mins from the city and enjoy a magnificent view from the hotel every day and night! The drive to and from the city is relaxing as you meander along the winding mountain road in the bus or taxi, passing small houses, lush foliage, panting cyclists and courageous joggers. next to the hotel is a lookout point for a clear view of the city and the Pyrenees mountains beyond.

The hotel itself is a beautifully conserved early 20th century building with wooden stairs, generous rooms and splendid views. if you hate modern buildings in an art-filled, historic city like Barcelona, this hotel will not disappoint. The cafe leads out to an outdoor pool while there is an indoor spa/pool also, I believe. Service is prompt and polite.

The only downside is that there are no shops in the vicinity, save for a restaurant next to the amusement park and the beautiful Tibidabo church, both 10mins walk away. But if you plan well and buy what you need from the city, you'll not be caught out for conveniences. For the view and tranquility, this resort on a mountain is well worth the distance from the bustle of Barcelona city centre.

Room Tip: Ask for a city view room.

A really special hotel in a special location, the views were breath taking. I arrived earlier than my colleagues and sat with a drink just admiring the scenery.

The whole hotel is very well designed and certainly offers you the components of a luxury break.

My room was split across two floors and really was unique in it's design, huge bathroom, dressing area, sitting area and upstairs cosy area too.

The only faults I found were that my room had been a little mistreated by previous guests and could have done with a couple of touch ups to the paint work. But honestly it wasn't a big issue.

The staff were friendly, not sure if they were 5 star, but certainly 4.

Food was great - although I only sampled a salad and the buffet breakfast.

Really enjoyable break - highly recommended.

Room Tip: I stayed in 604 which was great but I do think 601 and 603 would have had better views - although mi...

We spent a weekend at this Hotel. Its situated at the top of Tibidabo mountain with impressive views over Barcelona. It is far from downtown but if you appreciate scenic views at a good Hotel, you won't miss. The building is very nice and also rooms, clean and spacious. My "but" comes from the maintenance ... they have a sauna area and the days we were there the dry one did not work properly (I tried twice in different days and it was around 40 deg ...) and in the spa showers there was no hot water. They also had a problem with hot water in rooms (low pressure on hot water while in cold one it was perfect ...). Service was nice but maintenance is clearly not their strength. We also had a problem in the bar and the manager came to take charge and they sent a bottle of Champagne to our room ... so they reacted properly.
