Please let me be clear. Rating this property as "excellent" is not the same thing as a 5 star hotel. It was excellent as a 4 star. Second, we did not select this hotel; we obtained it as a 4-star near "La Ramblas" through Hotwire. La Rambla isn't just outside the door, but we were happy anyway.

This hotel is "hidden in plain view" on Ave. Parallel, one of the most busy streets in Barcelona. It is very close to Poble Sec Metro station, so if you can get there from the airport, or a taxi only cost us about 27 Euros. We arrived early and couldn't get into a room until after 3, but the front desk staff allowed us to change and stored our bags. The lobby is decorated with a unique display of Zippo lighters! You can walk to La Ramblas in about 10-15 minutes.

Hotel room was clean and decorated in minimalist style. Lots of toiletries are provided. A safe was found in our closet. The mini bar items were expensive. The biggest thing we noticed when we came back the second day was how clean and perfect our housekeeper left our room. It was spotless! Usually, housekeeping doesn't seem too detail-oriented on guests staying more than one night. It was like walking into a fresh hotel room. Again, perfection! Thank you to the housekeeper on the 2nd floor, rear facing rooms! Speaking of rear, our room looked out onto a balcony, but there was no way to get there. Perhaps the closet was once a door to get outside? Anyway, because of this, we heard nothing!The first morning, we woke up at noon due to the time difference!

My husband ventured down to the bar, but never stayed long -- he said it was too hot. We checked out the day the pool was open so never got to see that. We found this to be a charming residential neighborhood. Walking down Parallel towards the city-centre, we found a pedestrian-only street with the best tapas bar in Barcelona, Blai Tonight.The word has obviously already gotten out about this place -- it was packed every night we went. Avoid tapas bars near the hotel that are on Parallel. We sampled a few and found the tapas to be deep fried frozen garbage. Trust us!

Hotel arranged a private car to take us to the airport on our departure. Was private, clean, and cheaper than a taxi. We'll stay here again!

The Silken Concordia is a Good hotel (verging on very good), in a good location (Poble-Sec Metro station is 30 feet away), with restaurants and nice local shops nearby (Plaza, Museums etc. are 10 mins walk towards Espanya Metro station). NEW small swimming pool area on 5th floor, opened June 2014, which has a nice atmosphere, good sun bathing area. Some good modern services, like FREE Wifi (not always stable). Quality of rooms is good, some wear, but ok. Reception service was excellent, very helpful, especially when we were waiting to catch a taxi to the airport and the main road was closed due to a festival. Reception has good English/Spanish language skills. Some minor things need to be improved (like quieter maids who are aware of their early morning noise, room sound insulation is not good, and doors slam too easily - simple things which can be improved). Saying this, we'd probably stay there again, but maybe try a different room (6th floor was ok). The TRIPLE-SEC bar area was nice, TV, beer and simple food service. -- Things to know - Safe surroundings (just minor graffiti). The nearby "Parallel 91" & "Ballisico" restaurants are recommended for evening meals, beer, cocktails - nice atmosphere. For travel buy a 10-trip Metro ticket for 10.50€ & keep it flat in a wallet, or it can fail to work. Nearby Apolo Theatre has excellent Spanish Flaminco show, very impressive. Beaches are best accessed via Vila-Olimpica or Barceloneta Metro stations (L3, then L4) from the hotel. Best City views are from Espanya Plaza roof terrace (6th floor), or Montjuic Castell. ENJOY!

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.
