    Very hi-tech trendy hotel, with amazing modern rooms with brilliant views of the city.

    Laterooms offer rooms around the £40 mark, which is great value for Barcelona and an excellent saving from there normal £200 per room rate. Excellent restaurant within the hotel with a fabulous tasting menu, fairly pricey though, but hey, you saved money on the room!

Stayed at this hotel for a long weekend at end of March. Nice modern hotel with helpful staff (they helped arrange tickets for the football directly with the ticket office so we knew that we paid face value). The room was clean, fresh and contemporary and beds were very comfy. The electronic sun shades were ideal for a mid afternoon siesta.

The location was pretty good as the metro station was just 2 mins away and is just four stops (10 mins) from La Rambla and is in a reasonably quiet area with large shopping centre close by.

The bar was reasonable and always fairly busy, but as others have mentioned the pool is ridiculously small.

Overall a good hotel offering good value for money and a convenient base for exploring Barcelona

silken diagonal... a fab hotel

by TripAdvisor Member illsey

This hotel was the cleanist hotel I have stayed in, the room was spoless. the decor of the hotel is fabulous and very modern. The staff were helpfull and polite. The location is ideal.....a 2 minute tube ride for the bustle of the rambles and the main squares. the tube stop is called glories and is a 4/5 minute walk from the hotel. The hotel is easy to find as it is right next to one of the biggest buildings in barcelona which is a tall cone shape ( you cant miss it). there is a small shopping area with a supermarket just behind the hotel if you want to pick up essentials. overall a clean and trendy hotel which i really enjoyed.

Fabulous & Funky Hotel at reasonable price

by TripAdvisor Member k-sparkle

I loved this hotel. The modern design is great. On entering, the lobby and bar area look stylish and are very welcoming, as are the staff. The rooms have a light airy feel and are bright and clean. They have minimal furnishings but there is enough space for clothes etc. The rooms are a good size and the bathroom quite large. I liked the glass walls of the bathroom and the privacy of the toilet screen. I also loved that an entire wall of the room was a window. The room had a safe and a mini bar which was reasonably priced. The shower was very powerful, which to me is the measure of a good bathroom. I liked the free toiletries and these were replaced each day.
The location, at Glories, was very convenient. Out of the city so there wasn't much noise, but next to the Metro for easy access to the centre. Only 4 stops to the Ramblas. The Glories shopping mall is across the road and has a cinema, lots of shops including C&A and H&M, restaurants and a Starbucks. Perfect!

Fun & unusual

by TripAdvisor Member ihatew0rk

Stayed here with my wife & 21 year old daughtewr. Loved the hotel except for the restaurant which was quiet & without any atmosphere. Rooms & bar were excellent, worth upgrading to superior as quite a bit bigger. Also great at night up at the pool cocktail bar with views over the city. Pool is very small but ok to cool off in after walking around Barcelona. Best to use taxi/tram as a fair walk from restaurants & sea front.

Well, congratulations!!

I can see this hotel from my kitchen window! Obviusly I've not stayed here, but it looks fantastic, specially in case you like modern architecture/design. The location is pretty good as there is metro, buses and tram stops very close to it.

Regarding where to proposal, cable cat could be nice... but sometimes it's crowded so no much intimacy there. My husband proposed me after attending a concert at Palau de la Musica (wonderful place indeed) and I found it very romantic.

Thanks for all help, very much appreciated. I am much less nervous than before. Currently brushing up on my Spanish and researching as many books as possible, however I feel so much more prepared with all ideas received. Many thanks again, and wish me luck!
