Nice hotel. Lovely clean rooms and a nice location with a mall only across the way from it. Roof bar is a bit pricey but to be expected in a hotel in Barcelona. Word of warning about the bathroom make sure that you dont book room with friends unless your very comfortable with each other. As the bathroom is all... More

Stayed for a week on business and several of our conference sessions were held in the hotel. Rooms are good: comfortable beds, excellent shower and more than adequate space for working.

The location of the hotel is great - very close to Glories on the metro and the tram stops almost outside. It's opposite the Glories Shopping Centre which is undergoing major refurbishment at the moment but will be very good when it's finished! At the moment, the food court is open and a handful of the shops, including Carrefour. We... More

My husband and I stayed at the Silken Diagonal for 2 nights prior to a cruise. Check-in process was swift and the reception staff were very helpful, polite and courteous.

The breakfast was good and the dinner as well, the pool on the roof is a bit small and you can also hear everything through the walls but the service was kind and helped out if we had any questions the metro is really close. We enjoyed our stay there!

Good location, excellent restaurant, nice conferencing facilities. Polite staff. Contemporary design inside as well. But opening the furniture in the room is a challenge, only try with PhD in ergonomics. Floor personnel a kind of loud and may disturb you unnecessary.

The hotel, staff and breakfast are very nice - I would give them a 5. However, the bathroom is made of glass walls, there is very limited privacy.

Staying in Poblenou

Neighbourhood Profile
Poblenou
The futuristic Agbar Tower stands out from Barcelona's skyline in Poblenou. It is no coincidence then that this area of town is the newly crowned technological park of the city, its own mini Silicon Valley containing a tech incubator (Barcelona Activa) as well as a host of local and international high tech companies. To accommodate the onrush of new residents and workers, the area of Poblenou has seen a surge of activity in new high-rise residential buildings and two top-notch shopping centres catering to everyone's need. The ambiance of this area is calmer than the city center and the beautifully relaxing Bogatell Beach, popular with locals, is just a handful of blocks away.
