Ok the check in was fine although no early check in allowed so expect to be waiting until 2pm if it’s busy. The neighbourhood seems ok. Food wise there are some reasonable restaurants in the shopping centre nearby and about 10 minutes walk there’s quite a few restaurants. The

A wonderful hotel, which couldn’t do enough for us as a small group here for the marathon and a major birthday celebration. The hotel is ideally located just moments from major attractions, shops and public transport - yet, feels quiet, safe and modern. We would all return for a

Quite good hotel, located in nice area with an easy access to main roads. Plus: private parking, free of charge due to out of order ticket machine. Minuses: awful bedding and pillows, I couldn't sleep there well (synthetic pillows etc); staff at the reception was really slaw and

I'm interested in the "Family & Co" promo. Silly question, but will I get adjoining/connecting rooms?
Call the hotel to see if there are 2 rooms in your category beside each other and they will accommodate you like they did us

I've been there in the beginning of November and the pool was closed. I suppose April might be too cold as well.

How do we get to the hotel from BCN airport on public transportation?
From BCN to this hotel, which I have been a few times, take the Aerobus, and you can buy tickets online for cheaper. The bus will take you to Plaza de Catalunya, from there take the L1 to Glories, hotel is less than five minutes away from the metro station. Do not take the train as it takes longer to get there. This hotel is my least favourite.

Hi the pool is not in use during winter months, we went in January and it was cold and rained on our last day, pretty similar to England. The pool bar is open though and they have outside heaters so you can sit outside and enjoy the view.

"If you can, ask for a higher floor. The view is amazing!"
"A corner room ;-)"
"Best views"
"Ask for quiet room - 18th floor is good as lots of development is going on around the hotel's surrounding area."
"It cost £40 to have a view of the city and it is 100% worth it absolutely amazing views we stayed 17th floor, just below the roof terrace"
US$113 - US$285 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
