Very good location for beach and nice views. It is about 5-10 minutes from the city and in a quiet area. The hotel is very trendy and busy, with a nice lounge on the top floor. We had a nice spacious room with trendy furniture and updated technology.

This is one of the most exclusive hotels in Barcelona these days, but you will enjoy it fully if you like extremely modern-futuristic design. If you prefer a more classic style better choose another one. The hotel has very impressive views of both the sea and the city since it is located at the tip of the port area, which...

This hotel is sosoSO amazing. My boyfriend and I only had the liberty of staying here one night on this past trip to Barcelona but will definitely be back for more!

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.
