“good hotel could be better”
Reviewed 6 June 2012

stated here for 4 days with friends. the good points: its a very clean hotel, the rooms were a good size. the beds were queen size, confy and there was a fold out sofa. its also not to far from some famoyus sights likes gialdis house and las sangrada da familiar
Negatives. its quite a way from the airport and the hotel doesnt arrange transfers so i found it difficult to get to. its a metro right to centre which isnt too bad. room service was terrible. i asked the hotel for extra towels. i had to call and request it twice and it took an hour. this also happened with the ironing board and a few others things. other than when we checked in(where the hotel receptionist took very long checking us and kept taking calls and dealing with other matters in between and took us over half an hour to check in) the hotel staff were generally quite helpful.

Very nice hotel that is centrally located in Barcelona. Located on Avenida Diagonal, the Novotel Barcelona City is a definite gem especially for the price paid. Rooms are basic... your typical Novotel design. There is a rooftop pool and lounge like area. ** Hotel is very close to La Sagrada Familia and a shopping mall that contains a Carrefour-- grocery store. **

This hotel was a pleasant surprise. The room was small but very well laid out and allowed us to relax easily with three people in the room. I really like the interior design of the room. The hotel is located near a metro stop and across the street from an american-type of mall which has good choices for less expensive meals. There is also a large grocery store there and it's always fun to pick up unique ingredients to take back home and it's easy to do here. The staff was very friendly and attentive. They all easily switch to speaking English if you need that. I think this is a good choice of location in Barcelona, it's more of a business area but is still lively without being noisy and unsafe. We drove in from France and the parking here under the hotel is easy and plentiful. It was $18/day to park. This hotel made our first trip to Barcelona wonderful. I hope to come back to this unique and beautiful city and we will definitely stay here again.
