It is a super modern hotel, close to public transport. If you need a taxi, don't get the hotel to call one for you - hail one outside, you save money that way. I would definetely stay here again - but if you are not familiar with the public transport system, familiarise yourself with that first.

Seconde fois que je viens ici, j'ai trouvé que l'hotel avait un peu vieilli, alors qu'il est récent, le service est moyen, et la piscine non utilisable car trés petite, seulement 4 transats pour tout l'hôtel et le soir soirée sur le toit avec table de mixage, DJ etc .... Cet hôtel est destiné à une clientéle jeune; mais dans le quartier il n'y a rien... Alors ....

Modern hotel, quite comfortable. Staff are professional and welcoming. I'm very satisfied about the room, but upset by the internet access, mission impossible. Furthermore, they said on their page the undergrand station is 20 meters away, in fact it's at least 200m!

The design of the hotel is very good but I expected more from my room. In fact there was some old bushes on the floor and I could see some electric wires near the window. One thing that was irritant: for 2 days, in front of the door of my room there was a dirty breakfast tray of someone else...very incredible! Anyway, the metro is near and outside there is a big shopping center where you can have your breakfast (in the hotel the cost is about 17euro/person...very expensive). The personal of the hotel is gentle. I don't know if I will return again...from a 4 stars I expected more!

A little too far from the beach - walkable but quite long. Must take subway or tram to get to popular areas. Right by a mall so that was vonvenient. Beautiful and very good value.

We had a good stay here. We appreciated the attention to design details. Occasionally we could hear doors closing in other rooms near ours, but no street noise. The staff was courteous, but not overly friendly. We stayed in other locations during our visit in Barcelona. We prefer to be more centrally located than we were at the Silken Diagonal, but it was still fine and we were able to explore areas in that neighborhood.

The hotel is in a bad area. The only reason for booking this hotel was because of the Agbar tower next door which never lit up. The front desk did not honor the price given by venner which I will still contest with american express. They charge 110.00 per room not 89.00. People kept opening the mechanical blinds which make lots of noise. When you get into the hotel, you are greated by a smoking bar to your right which made us unconfortable, bad design. We got only one queen size bed in one of the rooms, not even King. The shampoo is only for men. My daughter and I smell like strong cheap man colone next day. Very strong smell. As for front desk, (The so call manager) is not accomodating. You should not sell hotel rooms for this hotel if they don't honor the price you sell rooms for. One more thing, they don't have irons in the rooms. I requested one and house keeping brought me the worst ironing board I have ever seen. Very, very poor condition. (not housekeeping's fault). I could recomend this prooerty only to man but not corporate. I work at corporate and would not advice any of our women to go there. After that we stayed at the Fira Palace hotel which was much better, better area, better service and not much fuss because of our 2 kids. We had at Fire, a large room with 2 big beds and a sofa bed fitted in the room. Very comfortable and the best of all (Privacy in the bathroom). Please bring my comments to the attention of the owner or head manager. Thanks, Ruth

The hotel is very beautiful. Overall stay was excellent. Just one thing....we've reserved room with ONE BIG BED and I've precised it again in my comments for the hotel. However, when we've arrived no rooms were available with one double bed....It's quite a shame for the romantic week-end.

Stayed in the hotel for 5 nights while attending a confernce, its very close to the CCIB conference centre, just 5 tram stops away. Its also a short metro ride to the centre of town, but the metra doesn't run all night and I did have problems getting a taxi late on Sunday night. Accomodation was excellent and the facilities where good, I would definately stay here again.

It's very convenient, just a few minutes walk from the metro station. The staff are very helpful. Shoppin mall and big supermarket is available in just 3 minutes walk. The room is beautiful and fully equipped. The bathroom is a little bit wierd because the floor will be all wet when having a shower, only suitable for taking a bath.
