Hotel SB Icaria Barcelona
Ranked #235 of 515 Hotels in Barcelona
Reviewed 4 September 2013

The hotel reminds me of Novotel in terms of decoration and food options. It seems clean and the staff are very friendly. Breakfast is good enough...lots of fresh fruit. The location is fantastic. Close walk to the beach and the Port Olimpic. Gym leaves something to be desired but you can go for a run close by or go swimming in the mediterranean.
THe complaint I would have is that the walls are very thin. You can hear everyone in the halls and outside at the pool/cocktail area. I was able to tune it out after the first couple nights though. I would stay here again.

Great location because its near the beach, port and central town Staff were so helpful and friendly. Clean rooms, good size, air con (as we were there in summer which was really amazing), great bathrooms. Pool area is lovely, nice waitresses in cafe area. Definitely book this hotel if you are after somewhere reliable to stay. No noise, away from the hustle bustle of town. Cabs are always waiting around. The Tourist hop on and hop off bus stop is right outside. Other bus servies bus stop are outside for shopping. Book now.

Just back from a visit to Barcelona. Arrived at the SB Icaria, and was a little perturbed, as it is located at the end of the street, next to building ready for demolition, but once in side, wow.
Service is top notch, secure lift access to floors, great family rooms, king size for parents, drop down single beds for the kids in the lounge area of the room, spacious bathroom, with shower, toilet, bidet and bath. Down side is limited channels on the TV, but hey, too much to do, no time for TV! Free wifi throughout the Hotel & Pool, and good speeds. Beach area is 250m away through pedestrian area, great restaurants, well kept, and locals/families enjoying the beach.
Hop on/off bus is 100m away, and taxi rank right outside.

Pool area was great for kids 6 & 9, and good for lounging for adults. Menu is okay, breakfast not to be missed, good selection, freshly cooked etc.
Staff friendly and helpful. Had a 5am start for a balloon ride, and they arranged a picnic breakfast for us.
If you are traveling to Barcelona with family, this has to be the best hotel. Good facilities, good value for money, location is away from the madness of the main areas, but within easy reach.

Can highly recommed the hotel for a family.
Rooms were big and clean. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful.
In the heat of the summer it was a huge added bonus to be at a hotel with a pool.
Great value for money.

As usual, I'll be as objective as possible.

Room - Big room, considering regular european size rooms and large bathrooms with all the amenities. Nice and modern decoration. The bed was not my favorite, but this is very subjective, since, my father which was in the room with me, really liked. Free wi-fi in the room.

Hotel - Felt like I was in a small resort, with great lobby decoration, a restaurant in the pool area with a lounge, fitness center, swimming pool and a jacuzzi. The restaurant service was good and the food was great.

Location - This is not a centrally located hotel, but is within walking distance to the beach, subway station and the restaurants in the marina. The street where is located is very quiet and there is no noise at night.

Service - Whenever needed the staff was very helpful and nice to us.

Breakfast - One of the best I have ever had in hotels. Hot and cold buffett with plenty of options of all nationalities.

Would stay there again and will refer it to my clients.

This hotel is not very centrally located, however within the walking distance from the centre of Barcelona and near to the beaches. The staff was friendly, rooms clean and spacious and the breakfast buffet best I´ve ever had. There was also free wifi-connection in the hotel. Very good value for money.
