“A very comfortable stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 September 2012

Spent three days all the Pullman Skipper at the end of August. It's not a budget hotel, but rather well priced considering the amenities and location (near the beach). We had a room with a balcony facing the pool (definitely worth the extra cost!). While not overly spacious it was quite comfortable. The beds were fantastic and the bathroom was huge. Breakfasts were amazing, great selection! The pools (rooftop and main floor) were great - it was quite hot during our visit and we certainly appreciated them. We found the location was the best of both worlds - 5 min walk to the beach/boardwalk area, and a 2 minute walk to the metro station which provided easy access to the downtown area. My only complaint was that we were not able to get into our room until 14:30, a bit of a drag when you've been up all night on a transatlantic flight.

Room Tip: Try for a 3rd or 4th floor room, you might get a bit of an ocean view.

We had a short but wonderful stay at the Pullman Barcelona. It's not a budget hotel, but I felt like I got my money's worth. From the beautiful roof-top pool, the short walk to the beach, the delicious food and the service-oriented staff, our stay was truly top-notch. The rooms are really big, especially for Europe. And of course it's very well located - it's a 5-min walk to the beach, 25-euro taxi to the airport, and a 10-euro taxi to the cruise terminal (we didn't get to Las Ramblas, so I can't comment on that).

Been there once last year in spring. The hotel was great. Food: awesome, the rooms very nice but the big trigger is most likely the pool on the roof of the hotel. Although not a low-budget hotel, definitive worth a recommendation. Location is vers good, more or less directly at the beach and some nice bars.

Stayed October 2011, travelled on business

The hotel was easy to find, I would recommend a taxi to and from the airport as the connections can be awkward.
The hotel itself was extremely clean and tidy in all areas and the staff were all very efficient and helpful. The two pools were busy but there was always seats available although the usual problems occured with the loungers... towels with no people. The rooftop pool had a nice bar with good cocktails and also gave great views of the city. Breakfast was extensive with a wide choice and you could eat either inside or out. Unlike some hotels there was plenty of space for the tables and the food which made it much more comfortable.

The rooms were very clean, well maintained and had all the amenities you would expect.

The negatives of the hotel were that our room had the smell of cigarette smoke from previous guests and the air con in the room was not cold enough.

The hotel is within easy reach of the beach, sightseeing bus stop and a number of good restaurants, I would certainly come back to this hotel, but would ensure I had a no smoking room next time.

Room Tip: Make sure you inform the hotel when you book that you want a no smoking room,

First Impressions.

The Pullman Skipper Hotel is located in the Port Olympic area of Barcelona. It has a central location overlooking the sea and close to the beach in Port Olímpic. The rooms are comfortable and stylish with a very contemporary design and rooms facing the beachfront direction have balconies but the lower floors do not have sea views.

The Facilities, Service & Staff

The hotel has two outdoor pools, a gym, a spa and a sauna. The hotel also has The Atic Bar by the pool that serves snacks and light lunches. It is a great place to chill and enjoy the sun on this rooftop location with stunning view of the harbor area. The Blend Lounge and Bar on the ground floor and The Syrah Mediterrani Restaurant. The staff are helpful and very professional and on-hand to provide assistance and advice whenever required.

Overall

The hotel is a great place to stay for weekend breaks with excellent facilities and pleasant staff. It is a typical city center hotel with all the facilities you would expect from a professional establishment. It is not a warm, cosy and friendly hotel that you would want to stay at for any period of time but it is an ideal city break location.

Service- 7/10
The Food- 7/10
Value for Moey - 7 /10
My Verdict- 7 /10
