“Perfect for the civilized experienced traveler ”
Reviewed 15 July 2014 via mobile

The Pullman Skipper is an excellent hotel, but it's not a place you'll buy the Cartier watch you left at home...

Great rooftop pool! Great location!!
Great bar drinks!!!

Business or pleasure, you find a level of subtle service that's luxury as a standard, with European flair that's not overwhelming you with "welcome back"! every time you walk in the door.

An oasis to entertain yourself completely & totally for a week it's not, but that's the point, it serves as an excellent place to recharge your self after a day of sights, beach, & nightlife...

If on summer vacation to Barcelona you envision eating a gelato fully clothed under an umbrella, this is not the place for you...
If you envision relaxing under the sun, with a lush pool nearby to cool you off when needed, surrounded by beautiful bodies doing the same, then enjoy your stay.

My only two issues with The Pullman, the Attic pool open at 9AM... and they really need to consider improving the selection of music & sound system of that pool...

I'll def be back!

We stayed here for a 5 day trip to Barcelona and were really impressed with the hotel.

The location is ideal - very close to the beach, marina and restaurants, which offer many opportunities for things to do and places to eat and drink. It's away from the main tourist areas, but something that works in it's favor as it's quiet enough to ensure that you don't get hounded, but close enough to the bus and metro links, which allows you to head to those areas with great ease.

We had a Standard Room with Sea View and it was very comfortable, quiet and with great views.

It's our first trip to Barcelona, but wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Room Tip: Standard Room with a Sea View is excellent value for money and quiet, we didn't bother with the...

Very comfortable hotel, not over the top. The rooms were spacious and very comfortable. The beauty is the hotel is away from all the tourist traps, but very close to the beach for those morning walks. My only negative is the pool area was too small for the number of guests wanting to use it. Great staff, great location and really good value for money. I would definitely stay here when I visit Barcelona next time.

Went to Barcelona for a 5 day break. Found the hotel ideal for hosting a business conference(rather soulless) and indeed there was a conference every day in reception. The elevators are painfully slow, the location good for the beach not great to walk into the centre. Attention to detail was lacking, no bags delivered from reception, remote control in room broken and the toilet in 526 required some balancing skills as it was installed with a lean to the left. The wifi must emanate from the elevators as the signal comes and goes. Check out was poor and lacking any incentive to return. Not overly impressed for the price.

My wife and I flew into Barcelona a few days before we left on our cruise. This hotel is in the perfect spot to explore the city and beaches in Barcelona. The hotel is 1-block away from the Hop-On Hop-Off City Explorer Tour bus route. It is 1 block from the beach and near many great restaurants within a short walk. The staff was very knowledgeable and helped us figure out what to do and where to go. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Barcelona!

I would reccomend this hotel for business travellers and for younger people. Close to the beach and the clubs, 3 minutes walk to the closest metro station. Nice breakfast, perfect location if you visit Barcelona during the summer and you want to spend your whole day by the sea and having fun at the clubs. In order to go to La Rambla you have to take the metro or a cab. The rooms are OK, be advised to take the rooms overloooking the pool and not the ones close to the street as there is some noise from the traffic. The prices for the summer are qquite high, but you can get a good deal if you choose to go off-season. The room was clean but the bathroom seemed ready to fall in pieces.

Room Tip: Do not go for the rooms near the street.

beautiful hotel. We paid a little more for a room with balcony and sea view. The hotel is contemporary chic. In an excellent position if you want to be near the beach. Lots of restaurants around and very handy for buses and Metro.
Lovely breakfast served in the morning with a great choice plus wine or Cava.
