We had a lovely suite with a balcony and really were torn between just sitting there and looking at the views and seeing all that Barcelona has to offer. The hotel is a cab ride from most activities...we would love to see a water...

Stayed in a "Fabulous" room with my girlfriend for her birthday treat. Views overlooking Barca and the beach were spectacular. Fantastic bar at the top of the hotel is a great place for a couple of cocktails before heading out for dinner. Service from staff was faultless. Looking forward to coming back next year.

Staying in Barceloneta

Neighbourhood Profile
Barceloneta
Originally a fisherman’s quarter, this quaint area can’t escape its small village feel: laundry hanging over the narrow streets, old ladies clamoring at each other from their balconies and elder gentlemen playing games on short wooden benches gossiping the day away, Barceloneta could double as a film set. Artists line the boardwalk displaying their magnificently detailed sand structures making this the most visited beach in the city (the shirtless men working out might help too). You’ll know by the delicious aroma that you're in the right place to try some of the best and most authentic seafood including paella, Spain’s national dish.
