“Break in Barcelona”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2012 via mobile

Lovely hotel but so glad we went for the Queen rooms with a balcony as these are quieter and face the pool. The chaper ones face the roads and there is a bus stop outside. Even better if you are fourth floor and above as you will have better views of the beach over adjoining building. Can't fault the staff and there attention to detail. There are more picturesque areas to stay in the city but the Olympic Port area has the advantage of modern facilities. This hotel has a roof pool with outstanding views all around and a bigger pool below which is ideal for children. If you want luxury but at a good price go for this hotel

I recently stayed at the Pullman in Barcelona. I was so excited during the anticipation of the lead up to my visit to Barcelona to stay at this hotel. However, my room had a "dirty" feel to it. The headboard on the bed had a HUGE scratch on it, and the pillows looked soiled. It wasn't all bad though. The hotel is in a good location. It is close to the beach and close to the metro. The breakfast was really good and ths staff was excellent. At one time, I bet this hotel was really as good as advertised. Maybe it was just the standard room I was staying in or maybe it was the high hopes I had before arriving, but it was kind of a disappointment.

We stayed at the Pullman Skipper for a weekend in June. I will start by saying that we usually stay at the Hotel Arts next door but as they were full the reservation assistant suggested another Accor hotel- the Pullman. While the pool area, breakfast and rooms were lovely - the service of a 5*establishment was lacking.

When we checked into the double room we had booked, we discovered they had allocated us a twin room. On request to change this- we were informed that that hotel was full and we could only change rooms the next day (we eventually did move he next day although it was after multiple calls)The temperature tap on the bath room was broken and although this was speedily fixed- it's not something you expect in a 5* hotel. The lifts were slow and sun loungers at the pool were hard to come by. I tried the spa and although my therapist was lovely - it is in the basement so you don't get the experience and views of the Hotel Arts next door and you do pay a very similar price. We enjoyed our stay at the Pullman but would have enjoyed it a bit more if it had been correctly advertised and priced as a 4*hotel. It's not comparable to the Hotel Arts next door- a true 5*experience with service to match.

Stayed here for a business event and the hotel does everything you need, and very nicely too. The service is good, the rooms are modern - in the summer maybe you want to ask for a room in a shadier spot as the sun heats up the windows pretty fiercely. If you're driving, the parking entry and exit ramps are a challenge to your skills at the wheel, small and steep!
I like the roof top terrace, its a great feature with the pool and spa. This hotel delivers on its promises.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the sun can get pretty hot in the summer.

Fantastic hotel with excellent facilities and service. Spent four days here with dad as a fathers dat treat. We received an upgrade to a junior suite which was amazing. The roof pool and terrace was a great place to relax and enjoy the sun after a hard mornings shopping and sight seeing. Excellent location next to the beach and with in walking distance to many of the sights and shops. Taxi's are cheap and therefore its easy to get around the city.
