“Thank you Senor Albert!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2012

Good hotel. Very clean. The gentleman (Albert?) who checked us in on the evening of 4 April 2012 was extremely helpful, kind and welcoming. He was very considerate of these four tired travellers and gave excellent tips on where to have tapas in the neighborhood. He provided us with maps and encircled the nearby places on them so we'd have an easy time finding the tapas places. He also followed up after just to make sure that we were alright. Kudos, Senor! We know you'll go far in the hotel and travel industry.
With respect to the blonde lady who was at the reception the next few days - we were not fans. No warmth. No help. She just sent us to the house phone to do things ourselves. At our previous hotel in Germany, the Marriott Dusseldorf, they were far more warm and helpful beyond the call of duty. 8 April 2012, our last night at the Pullman Barcelona, was a little weird because the guests in the hotel rooms near us were shouting in the hallway. We gathered that they were students and that the roommate of one had fallen asleep after bolting the door so the roommate had to wait outside with her boyfriend. There should be a quieter and more effective way that hotels can deal with sound sleepers! Maybe it was the blond lady on duty at reception.

Had 1 night in the Pullman Skipper in June 2012 and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Large, modern room with cool bathroom and a superb breakfast spread enjoyed al fresco by the hotel's waterfall.

The service was very professional and the helpful staff even allowed us to check out late as we'd only arrived the previous evening at 9pm.

The pièce de résistance, however, was the rooftop pool/decked area. Stunning views of Barceloneta and a hot tub, which was where I spent most of the morning and early afternoon.

Don't think you could stay here for more than a few nights though, while it's great for business it's not got that much "soul".

We visited Barcelona in May and decided to pay the extra and stay here. So pleased that we did as we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We took a cab from the airport which cost 25 euros. As our room was not ready, the very helpful receptionist stored our bags and gave us advice on where to eat. On returning to the hotel later, the bags were already in our room. Shortly after we returned, there was a knock on the door and the staff presented us with wine and chocolates for our wedding anniversary. A lovely surprise and a very nice touch, that night there was even rose petals spread across our bed.

The room was very nice and had everything you could want, including dressing gown and slippers. Lovely bathroom and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was brilliant, there was so much to choose from with both hot and cold selections and even sparkling wine as well .... something I could get very used to!

The hotel was in a great location and was right on the beach front and if you went onto the roof terrace, you had a nice view While you could walk to lots of places or use the train (very cheap for a 10 trip ticket) we found that cabs were very, very cheap in comparison to London.

We really enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate in booking this hotel again.

This is a very good hotel located near the beach promenade close to the Olympic marina. We had an ordinary double room on the first floor. We could hear noise from the reception area and the lobby bar unless we closed an inner door. Our room was facing a street, but there were no disturbing street noise. The room was quite spacious, clean and nice. The hotel has one pool in the garden and another on the roof. Both were very nice, but none of them are heated so the water was quite cold in May.
The staff is very helpful and speaks good English. The concierge did a good job in helping us to good tickets in the opera.

Room Tip: You may want a room with a balcony, as these are the same rooms as those without, we found it a bit...

November 2007 2 nights= around $640 This was a last-minute stay for my daughter and me. We were driving around Europe and ended up here one afternoon. It was a much-needed pampering after many, many cheaper places; including hostels which my teenager loved. THIS was my treat to us! Beautiful rooms and bathrooms.(I would LOVE this bathroom design in my home! Great view of the water and pool. Location was great as I parked the car and we used the metro the rest of the time. I am not one to waste money on luxury, but this was like eating dark chocolate after years of bread and water. Definitely expensive for my dental hygienist salary, but very much appreciated.

Room Tip: Consider the water view. Dazzling. Fall in love with the bathrooms...
