Reviewed 4 November 2013 via mobile

Very clean and comfortable, located next to a major mall. We found it difficult to find the metro, which was about 10-15 minutes walking. The air conditioning did not work as well as we would have liked.

Clean, next to a huge shopping mall and within 7 minutes walk of the station direct to Passege de Gracia in the centre of Barcelona. Breakfast was not included and was a bit pricey but there's a supermarket in the shopping mall so we grabbed some water and nibbles to keep us going. Staff were very helpful and spoke good English.

Downside was lack of drawer space, no iron and no tea/coffee making facilities in the room. Excellent value for money though!

I stayed in this hotel as part of a business trip. The hotel location is away from the main tourist areas, but is close to the various main routes so benefits from good transport links. Hotel was not noisy either despite being close to some main roads.
The room was clean and spacious, facilities are comfortable, however are relatively basic compared to other hotels in the NH chain. Hotel was difficult to find with the shopping centre being of the same name, however benefits from free parking close by.
The breakfast was very good and the staff were really friendly and helpful which helped.
I wouldn't recommend this hotel for anyone wanting to stay close to the main tourist attractions in Barcelona, but is a nice stop over for business or someone wanting to stay outside of the main city area.

Stayed: October 2013, travelled on business

We were in april in Barcelona. hotel is very nice,staff at reception is friendly and helpful, rooms are tidy (no fridge inside so can be a little problem in summer time). There is a huge shopping centre including restaurants next to hotel. The city centre is about 20min by train or metro. the stations are not far, about 10min walk through nice park. Area is not really beautiful (lots of block of flats etc) but is nice and quiet and we had have not any problems with people :) taxi from airport costs about 30-40euros but it is better and cheaper to take train and go to St. Andreu station (10min walk from hotel).
Enjoy your holidays at La maquinista :))

Hi,
We stayed in NH Maquinista for 4 days in August 2013 as part of a Cultural Tour planned by ETS. There is a large shopping center just near the hotel (which has Carrefour, etc.) but do not think about buying water or anything else to keep in the room, as even though the hotel has 3 stars, there is no fridge in the rooms. That was our 1st disappointment. There are two metro stations which are fifteen or twenty minutes of walking distance from the hotel. The breakfast and the rooms were ok. The staff was helpful.

this hotel is really clean, the staff were really helpful, there is no internet, (wifi only)no english tv
there is a bar but it is not open, no pool, the rooms are very clean and quite,there is a shopping centre next door with good places to eat, and the shops are very nice, but after that there is nothing, this hotel is on an industrial estate and is quite a way from the airport and even further away from barcelona city centre there is nothing in this vicinity apart from the shopping centre (we were put here by easy jet as there was an airline strike) why you would stay i don't know?

Room Tip: I do not know why you would stay here the location is just wrong
