ICARIA-ok business hotel

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 1, 2013

nou problem,we chose the hotel restaurant and it was fun, they had prepared special system with gift packages and it was perfect for our 5-year old kid.
our dishes werent so great, i even commented to kitchen that it was too hard to chew(lamb is not easy to make) but our sons main dish was more "done" and better.
hotel is ok, normally 4 stars in finland means higher standard but all things are there and they work, a bit run down and everything "almost" great.

NEW YEARS hint; on 1st of Jan is all closed mainly so look carefully where to go.
I noticed that sagrada familia is open only until 2pm, so went there first- then casa mila (cause on this special day its open 11-18, and saw it beautifully at 17-18 in evening sun down.
aquarium is open also 1.1. until 21.00 so we went there last, and it was of course a blast for a kid -and fish loving parents too.
tomorrow parc quell.

Unique Quality: even in new year they have outside jacuzzi with semi-warm water!

A Hidden Jewel

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)

Our family of 3 travels quite often and are members of several major hotel chains. However, there are no major ones other than Hilton near the waterfront in Barcelona. We opted to try this hotel, Icaria BCN...4 star, 2 blocks from the beach, away from tourists and a 16 multi-plex that plays films in the original language. It is in the Olympic Village area which is very residential but taking #14 bus goes to Port Vell, Las Ramblas and Plaza de Catalunya. and it is only 1.25 euros The hotel is walking distance to Olympic port with numerous restaurants. If you like to walk, the promenade will all along the waterfront. If you are going on a cruise out of Barcelona, this is a great choice as it is a short cab ride to the port.
Now the hotel...It is very modern and chic without feeling pretentious. The regular room was large for European standards, sound proof, comfortable bedding and bed and good quality amenities. The suite includes a computer, so no need to drag a laptop. There are 3 computers gratis for your use in the lobby also.
The dining was good. Breakfast was a buffet and dinner had interesting choices that are prepared fresh, so be prepared to wait. But it is worth it. Pricing is very good. We had also ordered room service in which pricing is better than any hotel I have seen in the past. Some items are available 24 hours.
The hotel has two outstanding members who are Marta and Melchor at the front desk. They are pleasant, knowledgeable and very efficient. I know it is a difficult task when dealing with the public but they do so with ease and a smile, which is important. They make an excellent impression.
We decided that this hotel is outstanding in price, comfort and location. We will definitely stay there in the near future.

We stayed there for 7 nights. The hotel itself was lovely, good sized rooms and bathrooms with great decor, the airconditioning DID work for us, rooms cleaned daily and the pool was fab. Didn't eat at the hotel at all so couldn't comment on the food although need to say the room service menu didn't look very expensive. The location of the hotel is excellent, 2 minutes from Boegetal beach and about 30 minute walk to la rambla. There is also the number 41 bus right outside the hotel which takes you to placa de catalonyia. The staff were ok, quick check-in but not exactly the most approachable bunch but at the same time did nothing really to offend. Like others said, there is a bakers just around the corner and the other way a large shopping centre which has various restaurants and a big supermarket on the basement floor. There are also plenty of banks close by and taxis frequently pass so there is no trouble in flagging one down.

Overall I would definitely recommend this place, its near enough to the centre of town for easy access but also far enough out that you can appreciate the beauty of the fantastic beaches.

Unique Quality: Outside Pool
Free Internet Access in Lobby
2 minute walk from Beach

Directions: Port Olympic
