Originally a fisherman’s quarter, this quaint area can’t escape its small village feel: laundry hanging over the narrow streets, old ladies clamoring at each other from their balconies and elder gentlemen playing games on short wooden benches gossiping the day away, Barceloneta could double as a film set. Artists line the boardwalk displaying their magnificently detailed sand structures making this the most visited beach in the city (the shirtless men working out might help too). You’ll know by the delicious aroma that you're in the right place to try some of the best and most authentic seafood including paella, Spain’s national dish.
If you are interested in Catalan history, this is the place for you. I spent most of the time reading (in English) the explanations. It is very big and covers centuries. I must admit i got tired in the middle and moved quicker. The special exhibit (unlike the permanent exhibits) did not appear to have English so I skipped it.

Great station for arriving at the water front and the more interesting areas of Barcelona like Las Ramblas. Quiet and seemingly lesser used. Not as fancy as others but much more useful. In the process of renovation and already looking good.
Overall the beaches at Barceloneta are well maintained. There are lots of restaurants, bars and chiringuitos to have a meal, snack or just relax and have a long drink or beer enjoying the sun and the sea. There are areas for sport and keep fit fanatics. It gets extremely busy during the summer months and at weekends, where a lot...
We enjoyed walking down the boardwalk along this beach as it was peaceful and calm that day. Only one person came up to us asking for money, so that's not bad, all things considered. All the shops and businesses were closed that day, I don't know why, but I can see it being a pretty happening place in the summer...
If You are in B. just for couple of days, it is a great option to go there for one day, it is great localisated., near center, and alos in interesting place - in district are often some kind of picnic, and local events. Also on tn the beach you can borrow some sunbed and beach umbrella.

In November at the beach in Barcelona it can be still warm and pleasent. Still warmer when a guy like Hamidou welcomes you. We recommend the goat cheese with honey and truffle. And vermouth, of course.

Lovely place on the beach. Perfec to enjoy your drinks and food while looking at the sea.
Service was great, staff very friendly. Thanks to Andrea for keeping me warm ; she actually pushed the portable fire place closer to me so I can stay warm and enjoy my visit 😉
These little things make your experience enjoyable and memorable....
Tiny place pretty close to the sea in the Barceloneta area, runned by (guess what) a bunch of young guys from Sardinia, a beautiful island in the Mediterranean sea. The first thing you can feel is passion in everyone’s job, and a warm, familiar atmosphere pretty hard to find nowadays.
It’s clean, it’s friendly, it’s a fusion of fresh sea...
One of the coolest restaurants we visited in Barcelona. It’s surrounded by tourist traps and overrated places, so it really is a hidden gem for the area. Great atmosphere and service, and the food was very delicious.
We had the grilled daily fish (dorada), and oysters. Everything was very well prepared and served quickly.
"Lovely boutique design hotel across the pier in Barceloneta"
reviewed 1 week ago by cool_jonez
I stayed here for 2 nights on business. It's a lovely hotel.
1) Champagne toast at check-in
2) Free, strong wifi
3) Friendly, warm, helpful staff
4) Wonderful breakfast buffet with cava and made-to-order eggs, crepes, etc (but buffet is not included)
5) Rooftop sun lounge with plunge pool
6) Clean, quiet, secure
7) In-room Nepresso
8) Welcome fruit...
So for people looking for a quiet time this hotel is definitely not the right place as it attracts resident and visitor party-goers from all of town. The views are definitely great and given the fact that they have several pool areas you can rent one secluded pool area for private or corporate functions.
Stayed here for 3 nights last week for a short trip to Barca.
A very decent location, right near the Marina area of the city. Lots of pubs and restaurants nearby in the Born area, which I'd recommend, along with the Gothic area nearby, which had lots of places of interest. My advice would be to avoid Las Ramblas as...
We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of October.
The hotel is in a great location. It’s about 20 minutes from Plaça de Catalunya. It’s in a great district of Barcelona with lots of shops and bars within a very short walk.
The beach is close by too - not that it was the weather for the beach....

When you go visit Barcelona you tend to stay downtown close to Passeig de Gracia or Diagonal to be near the beautiful Gaudi and other architects incredible buildings... but staying over at Hotel 54 gives you the opportunity of being at the core of Barceloneta! Barcelona's closest beach, full of foreigners, full of people that love sports and love to...
