An “interesting” hotel built on reclaimed land on the beachfront of the Barceloneta area of Barcelona. Building style is very “Dubai” of 5 years ago. The trouble is the location may be on the beach but unless you take a cab you are 20 to 30 minutes walk from the city – there are loads of restaurants, sand and super-yachts... More

This is probably the nicest hotel I have every stayed at. Our room had a crazy beautiful view of the ocean. Service was very efficient. However, this is not an inexpensive hotel - and the environment/culture of the hotel encourages you to spend more money. i.e. when ordering a burger in the lounge, the waitress explained that ordering water was...

I just love this hotel. Magnificent location, great staff, great rooms with incredible view. I stay there at least two or three times a year and I have never been disappointed. If you don't like walking, you definitely need a taxi to go to any of the famous landmarks of Barcelona, but you're right there on the beach....

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.
