“Excellent location, noisy maids!”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

My partner and I have just returned after spending 3 nights (mon-thurs) at this hotel.

We arrived at 14:10 to check in and were advised that we would have to wait until 3, not really a problem as there are bars nearby just had to change in the toilets.

Location wise if you come out of the hotel and go over the road you have the 'Poble Sec' metro which is Line 3. If you come out of the hotel, go right, cross over a minor road and follow the road along (so you pass La Boheme cafe/pub) you are onto a strip which is fab on the night expecially if you like pintxos, it gets really busy.

The room size was decent and you would be able to 'swing a cat' in ti. Full bathroom with toiletries. Had an issue with the aircon but was quickly sorted whilst we were out. Minibar is expensive. The maids start in the corridors at 9am and they are very noisy!! We stayed in Room 402 which was on the back of the hotel and looed into residential properties out back.

There is a pool situated between floors 4 and 5 on the fire escape, its not very big but has some sunbeds as well as a teeny tini minigolf - it wasnt actually opening until after we left though :(

The hotel has a bar attached which is actually very reasonable costwise.

We would return although maybe with earplugs!

Room Tip: There are roadworks on the main road at present so would maybe ask for a rear room.

This hotel is located in a good neighbourhood but it is not a 4 star hotel at all. The internet connection is lousy. There was a smell of cigarette in our room from neighbouring guests even though the hotel is non-smoking. We informed the staff about the smell but they did nothing about it. Overpriced for what you get even after a hotwire deal.

Apreciado Sr Arnavaz,

gracias por su estancia en el Hotel Silken Concordia.

Lamentamos que su habitación oliera a cigarrillo, todo nuestro hotel es no fumador y así se lo hacemos saber a nuestros huéspedes.

Lamentamos igualmente que el Wifi no tuviera buena cobertura durante su estancia. Revisaremos el servicio del mismo.

Agradecemos su estancia con nosotros y su feed-back y esperamos poder atenderle nuevamente en nuestras instalaciones en su próxima visita a Barcelona.

To me Silken Concordia offers absolutely no surprises and in a sense this makes it a perfect stay. In case you're looking for that type of hotel where you know what to expect and basically what you're gonna get. They deliver on the standard expectations to a business hotel.

What positively really sticks out is the breakfast. Not your typical Spanish breakfast. Lots of choice, good products. A place you like to stay for a while and not just rush it.

A solid choice.

We enjoyed our stay at Silken Concordia May 14-18.The hotel is conveniently located near metro and within walking distance to La Ramblas, fountains and beach. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. Our room on 6th Fl which was always clean and comfortable. They are installing swimming pool in back area of hotel. Cafe on corner nearby which had nice pastry and coffee. Great location in Barcelona!! Would certainly return here.

This hotel is easy to find on a street within easy walking distance of the harbour, the Fountains and the main street as well as access to public transport such as buses and metro. It also has a bar attached to it though according to the information this did not open Monday or Friday and is closed throughout August ( would suggest this is double checked if you decide to book)
We were greeted in English upon our arrival. The receptionist was pleasant and efficient. Our room was a basic comfort room with two single beds a bath and shower. It was pleasant and clean. Linen was changed daily with thoughtful touches such as sweets/chocolates being left and night clothes folded.
Check out was equally efficient and painless with the receptionist offering to call us a cab to the airport . There is a shuttle service on offer in the hotel too
Only downside was the view from our window was neighbouring balconies but as we were out most of the time it didn't really matter.
It was our first time there but we would rebook this hotel without hesitation if we return to Barcelona

Decent room. Clean. Convenient location. Metro station is just across the street.

Can hear noises at times when people are talking as they walk by in the hallway.

Nothing exciting about it. Just a decent place to sleep and easy access to the metro.

First of all,

thanks for taking your time to leave a review.

We are happy that you had a nice stay in Hotel Silken Concordia and that you enjoyed our services and good location. The fact of having a bus stop that takes you directly to the Barceloneta, or the metro stop just across the street, or the 10 min walking distance to the Ramblas is something that not many hotels certainly have.

We would be more than happy to welcome you again in your next visit in Barcelona.

best regards

Hotel Silken Concordia
