Hotel SB

Posted Aug 18, 2014
This hotel was great at first, but then... the person who made the room, poured out our water into glasses. Why? Thought this was unacceptable. The front desk doesn't understand service. They did not attend to people in order. It was acceptable here to push in and you still got seen to. Also they started serving others who interrupted. They had no Idea about privacy. Also once the room bill reached €100 they left a note on peoples doors to pay thr bill. Even though you left a credit card as deposit at the beginning. Very inconvenient. This was also the executive floor. Not Executive service. The Spa people understood service. They were great. Front desk was terrible.

Barca

Posted Aug 11, 2014
Pros: the swimming pool on the terrace and spa on the lower ground floor.
Location: great location. 2min walk to shopping mall/road side cafe/bar restaurants, taxi and tram. 10 min walk to the beach. 15-20 min drive to the main city.
It was our first time in Barcelona and we didnt know quite what to expect. I must say though that we had one of the best times during our stay. We arrived at the hotel well early before the check in time but the staff were wonderful and let us check in our room as soon as we arrived. After we got in and freshened ourselves up we went around for a stroll. The hotel location could not be in a better place. Shopping malls, beach, cafes, transport. Most of all the staff were really nice and helpful especially the girl at the reception called Laura. She was very friendly and helpful and gave us all the tips and advice that we needed. Only problem from our room was that there was a building construction going on close by which basically was an eye sore and it blocked the view. other than that we had a great stay and would not mind staying there again.

Fantastic - Highly recommend

Posted Aug 5, 2014
Pros: Relaxing, quiet, high standards in every aspect, great customer service, modern facilities, great location, great breakfast, very comfortable room
Cons: Absolutely nothing!
Location: It is a great location in a modern part of Barcelona near the lovely sandy beach, shopping centre with lots of coffee shops and restaurants
I stayed in this hotel for 5 nights with my sister and niece. The reception staff were very welcoming and always helpful. We arrived at 5 pm and room was ready. Room for 3 was very spacious and so was the bathroom. Beds very comfortable. It was cleaned daily, linen and towels all toiletries replaced. Very modern facilities, wide choice of food at breakfast - all fresh and delicious, again staff very welcoming. Hotel spotlessly clean with very relaxed atmosphere. It is not in the very centre of town but that was a blessing as it is in a peaceful area, great beach is a nice 5-10 min stroll, the shopping centre 2 minutes away. We took taxi from the airport - 40 euros each way but it was a 15-20 minutes drive only which was a great saving of time. Lots of transport available around : trams, buses, metro and tourist buses to get you into centre very quickly. Taxi back from centre: 10 -20 Euros. Great views and swimming pool. We all LOVED this HOTEL!

Amazing hotel shame about location

Posted Jun 27, 2014
Pros: Staff, Rooms, Views, Near the beach and Cleanliness
Cons: Far from central Barcelona
Location: Beautiful beach bar at the nearest beach called Pantea, great fresh food and idyllic views. Tourist bus stops right outside.
My two friends and I just got back from Barcelona at the SB Diagonal Zero, it was such a great few days stay. The hotel maid service was very efficient considering how messy our room became and the hotel staff were exceedingly helpful by giving us great recommendations about local attractions. Our flight was cancelled and the staff worked so hard to help us find a room within our budget which was great. I can't really say enough about how great the staff were and how friendly everyone was. I would definitely recommend staying here if you're on a budget. My only issue was that the hotel was not too close from all the clubs and not that central, however there is a taxi rank opposite the hotel and not too pricey so it wasn't too problematic. If you want a chilled beach break with a nice hotel on a budget STAY HERE...its sick.

Clean, Friendly and Value for Money

Posted Jun 4, 2014
We are three guys that hired a cheap rate room with three single beds at this hotel. We were pleasantly surprised when we first entered the hotel; we didn't expect it to be so well facilitated or modern when considering how much we paid for the rooms. The Hotel is a 5 minute walk from the beach. There are lots of Tapas bars and restaurants nearby and a massive shopping mall too. The staff at the hotel were incredibly friendly and very helpful with all our needs. We had a few problems with the flush on our toilet but this was fixed quickly & we were even given a free bottle of wine and further compensation as a result. We were incredibly pleased with the service provided. The cleaning staff in particular did an exceptional job making sure our room was kept clean and tidy everyday. The room comes with modern lighting facilities, air conditioning, flat screen TV, internet facilities and an ice bucket. There are ice machines along the corridors for unlimited use. This hotel has a roof top pool with wonderful views of the surrounding areas; a great place for sunbathing. The pool was pretty cold but the bar staff at the pool were so nice - they gave us plenty of discounts and freebies. Downstairs there is a lounge/bar area with an outdoor lounge area; this area is very peaceful and a great place to lay around and read a book. There is also a gym and spa. All in all, we were more than happy with what we got for what we paid and we would definitely stay at this hotel again.

perfect location for convention center

Posted May 16, 2014 on Hotels.com
We recently attended a conference at CCIB, and this hotel was in the perfect location for getting to the early meetings. Not the best location for running around sightseeing, but with the close proximity of the tram, metro and tourist bus lines, that did not pose a problem. Shopping in the area is limited to the Diagonal Mar, but again, transportation to other neighborhoods was easy to find. The room was fairly typical, not the best view, but comfortable and relatively clean. Breakfast seemed overpriced for the quality, but the food and ambiance of the hotel bar were quite nice. The spa was a worthwhile stop after a long day of travel; the locker rooms are somewhat small, but the water area (massage beds, turkish bath, etc) were very well tended and relaxing. In general, I think we paid for the location relative to other similar hotels in town, but we were very pleased with the stay and would consider it again should we have more business in Barcelona.
