Great hotel, great location!

5 out of 5
by from New York, NY
Posted Sep 1, 2016
Pros: Great location. Clean. Friendly and helpful staff. Accessible by tram, train, and not far from central Barcelona if you like to walk.
Cons: Nothing at this time.
Location: Shopping, restaurants, playground for kids, Camp Nou is close.
Hotel AC Diagonal L'Illa is modern and clean with helpful and friendly staff. I stayed there for 4 nights. It is about 3 city blocks from Maria Christina train station, few minutes away from the center (I like to walk and it is about 30-40 minutes walk from Sagrada Familia). It is connected to a mall, but the noise level was minimal. Our room was located in the back so it was nice and quiet. Great places to eat around the hotel, but the hotel provides decent room service.

We enjoyed our stay in this hotel. The rooms were spacious and very clean and the staff would go an extra mile to accommodate guests requests. The hotel is in the business area of Barcelona and is a bit further down from the city center. Nearest metro station is 10 minutes by walk. the hotel is attached to a nice mall for those who loves shopping.

a well located Hotel on Diagonal

3 out of 5
Posted Oct 11, 2014
Pros: being remembered by some of the staff from previous visits. gave a bit of a more familiar homely feel
Cons: modernisation would be key, most hotels nowadays have some sort of exercise facility / Complimentary refreshments, it neds bringing more up to date
I've stayed at this hotel for business reasons 3 times this year, it was ideal for me considering the location i was working was just around the corner. The Hotel staff are very friendly, the food good and the restaurant was relatively quiet in the evening during my stays. The rooms are spacioous and quite comfortable.

Good Location Hotel

Posted Sep 30, 2014
Pros: The location
Cons: Wifi connection, Hotel smells like an old hotel.
Location: Directly next to a commercial center (Shopping) Some restaurants are located nearby.
The Hotel is simple and clean. The rooms and bathrooms are spacious. Its is located next to a Commercial Mall. A calm neighborhood . Bus stations are in front of the hotel. Barcelona City Tours have a stop directly in front of the hotel. Not very close to the City Center but transportation is very easy in Barcelona (Tram, Metro, Bus) all close to the hotel. The wifi connection was not very good in the room. Nice view from 3rd floor.

Nice hotel situated almost inside a mall!

Cons: Provide an iron to guests who want one.
Situated right next to the mall "centro comercial L'illa Diagonal", this hotel has a great location. There's always people around, so you never feel unsafe. Groceries, restaurants, cafes, clothing stores, etc. are all a minute away. Breakfast was good. The beds were good. The only downside was that the room got a bit hot during the day, even though it was 10 degrees outside and the heating was turned off. But there was no way to cool down the room since the windows could not be opened.
