“Better than average business hotel. Nothing more, nothing less.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2012

Picked on the basis of its proximity ot the local CCIB convention centre, the Diagonal Zero proved a perfectly pleasant if uninspiring place to stay during the week. The room was modern and chic, though probably took the spartan look too far, both in the lack of information available about the hotel and in the slightly odd combination of coffee cups, tea and coffee, but no means of actually boiling water. The bathroom was again modern and the shower - importanly - both hot and powerful.

Staff were generally friendly and helpful. The hotel has a spa (not experienced) and an unusually well-equipped gym. The bar downstairs (and the bar area outside at the rear) is perfectly pleasant but even during the period of the Euro 2012 football championships lacked any real atmosphere.

A couple of gripes. First, while the hotel wi-fi was free, it was annoyingly weak and inconsistent in the room, dropping the signal regularly (in contrast to the communal areas downstairs). Second, as others have said, the breakfast is very expensive for what it is - 18 euros per person -and the quality of what is on offer (in particular the hot food) was not always great.

The key selling point of the hotel is its proximity to the conference centre, although the centre of Barcelona is only maybe 15 minutes away on the metro. Given the other hotels in the area, I probably wouldn't pick this one again. It's not bad, it's just a bit non-descript.

I stayed for five nights with my son aged 11. Lovely rooftop pool with wonderful views. Easy access to city center by metro. Big shopping mall with fiod court just outside the hotel. Beach within walking distance. My son thought the best thing was breakfast with 5 different kinds of doughnuts! We would have liked to watch family movies but the pay tv was not yet running. Very clean spacious room with a seaview and good air con.

Room Tip: not all rooms have sea views so ask.

Attending a conference at the Barcelona Conventation Center, the Diagonal Zero was a good choice. Just opposite the venue. The hotel is a modern business hotel with large and clean rooms. Altough located next to a roundabout it's surprisingly quiet in the rooms, even when the windows are open. Breakfast service is efficient - you don't have to wait for tea/coffee as it's all buffet self service. There's a bar with a nice patio lounge. In general, not the first option if you want to explore the center of the city, but just perfect when you are on business. As the hotel is at the other end of the city when you need to go to the airport - allow enough time for the transfer when leaving during rush hour, as you have to cross the center.

The hotel is not very centrally located for the Barcelona tourist, but is right next to an event hall and conference centre. You can easily get to the centre of Barcelona by bus, tram or metro in 15 to 20 minutes. The rooms are modern and clean and from the higher floors you have a nice view, allthough some new buildings block part of the sight. The breakfast buffet is of decent size and has good quality food. Do however not try the hot chocolate, it tastes terrible. Everything else was quite good and pleasing. A good hotel for that area, for central sightseeing it would however only be an option for me, if no decent central location can be found.

The only problem with our hotel was the airco in the room who was to noisy. Room was OK, service was OK en breakfast was very good.
