The hotel is located not far from the beach, but defenietly not walking distance from any tourist attraction. Public transport is a way to get around if you choose this hotel. The area itself is mixed, I guess it used to be an industrial area and it was partially renovated for the olympics. The hotel itself is nice and clean...

A group of us stayed here at the start of October. The facilities are nice and the staff at the desk are very pleasant, but there is one middle-aged man working security for most the day who is the most ignorant person I have ever come across. During our 5 days here he gave out to myself and a friend...

Dear guest, Thank you for your review. Regarding your comments, there is an important point I need to clarify to anybody reading them: Our security staff not only takes care about the safety of our guests, but also tries to solve little issues that might become a big problem if we do not control them. That is, for example, all...

We were in Barcelona from 09.10 - 16.10.2011. The whether was perfect, somedays even too warm. Hotel has great location - 5 minutes from the beach, 2 minutes from the bus station, 5 -10 minute walk to Metro (Villa Olimpica). From there,5 minute to centre (Plaza Catalunya). Just perfect!

For the second time, i visited your hotel. We really like the situation, because it's close to the beach and the distance to the centre ( ramblas ) is also very good. Or you can make a walk along the beach and the port, or you can take the bus 41. The hotel is very clean and nice, the rooms...

This is really nice and as good as it gets at this price. I can see why it is so popular. Staff are friendly and helpful; we arrived early Saturday am before check in and so they locked our bags away while we went out. The pool is cold but refreshing and there is a hot tub next to it....

Staying in Ciutadella / Vila Olimpica

Neighbourhood Profile
Ciutadella / Vila Olimpica
The sounds of Marina Olympica's rocking boats and clicking mastheads swaying to and fro set an impressive backdrop for Ciutadella and Villa Olimpica. Follow the aromas of garlic, wine, and fresh local fish to the various restaurants running along the marina. A grand bronze fish statue soaring high above serves as a beacon to those searching for the renowned Casino Barcelona or the extremely popular nightclubs which practically lie on the beach itself.
