This is an excellent hotel, great staff and very attentive, Super breakfast. Just a perfect stay. Would not now choose anywhere else in Barcelona. Handy for the beach, bars and restaurants. Very pleasant walk to city centre. Pedrera well worth a visit - book tickets online though and beat the que. Loved the El Born area for bars and easy shopping, quiet and shady and easy to get to. You will find the Picasso museum here as well.

Room Tip: worth paying for a Med view with balcony

We have just stayed there for four nights and had an extremely good experience, we requested a high floor and got room 616 which had a balcony , sea view and a pool view .the bedroom was a good size , the bathroom was large and modern .The breakfast was good . It has 2 pools one on the rooftop and one on the ground floor, The rooftop had a very nice view of the surrounding area. We hired bicycles for four days and left them in the garage which was very useful . The beach and the casino are extremely close . The staff are extremely helpful . I cannot fault this hotel at all. The only thing that you should be aware of is the location to the Ramblas, if being on top of it is important to you then you may spend a lot of time walking or getting in taxes .......... Would highly recommend this hotel and would love to go back

Room Tip: Floor 6 if you like to use the rooftop pool and walk up only one flight so stairs

Spent a wonderful few days here, ideal for the beach and an easy walk into Barcelona for shopping and sight seeing.
Hotel is well placed to enjoy the restaurants and bars by the Olympic port where there is a huge choice

This is a really good hotel with nice rooms. I had one with seaview. Good bed and nice bathroom. But: this hotel is not a 5 star hotel. Services are not 5 star quality. No turn down service, not the feeling being pampered like sofitel does.

We recently stayed here for 5 nights and were a little disappointed with the experience. The hotel is lovely, although not at the usual Pullman standard (we thought anyway). The staff were excellent and very welcoming. The hotel was well maintained and the pools were lovely.

The rooms were a good size, however I found the bathrooms a little weird - the toilet is boxed in by the shower and makes it quite difficult to sit on the toilet - especially when you are over 6 foot like we are. The wifi was also very patchy, it didn't work well in the actual room - the best spot was in the bathroom which is quite difficult with a laptop.

For the price you pay to stay at this hotel, we were expecting a lot more. The location isn't the best, although very close to the beach and the quality of the rooms were fairly average.

We spent 3 nights her in early June at completion of 18 day tour around Spain. Hotel is in a fantastic location, close to beach, shopping, cultural sights, restaurants - all within easy walking distance. Staff very helpful and room was great. Breakfast each morning pretty good and as we had stayed 3 nights earlier in our trip at a good hotel but more in the financial part of the city, this area gave us a whole different outlook on Barcelona, a much better appreciation of the city. Would highly recommend this hotel. We also did a 3 hour bike ride through the old part of the city and the highlights which was good, albeit a bit nerve racking as I am not a confident bike rider. Still, we saw a fair bit in the 3 hours. There are also plenty of great little restaurants within easy walking distance. Well worth a stay I would say.

Room Tip: We stayed in room overlooking bar and breakfast area, very quiet and easy access.

The Pullman Barcelona Skipper is a very good hotel, located very close to the beach and not very far from the city center. A sightseeing bus stops only 50 meters from the hotel.

The rooms are nice and clean and the staff is very service minded. Be aware that the Wifi connection is very bad most of the time, however woking now and then. At leas that is our experience in a corner room.
Also note that their aircondition might not work very well, so don´t be surprised if your room does not get cold.

The roof terrace is excelent and the swimming pool is refreshing and just perfect for cooling down or a little swim. If you need any more cooling then the pool bar is right there.

Nice hotel if you travel with children. We loved the good service of this hotel.
