We spent 4 days at the Novotel Barcelona on April 2012. We were a family of 4, two adults and two teenagers. The stay was very good. We took the Novotel family package that allows getting 2 rooms at a reduced price.

The hotel location is excellent. Not in the crowded middle of town, but yet very close to a metro station (line 1) with very easy access to all city attractions.
The rooms looked new and clean. We stayed at the 7th floor, and besides the fact that in the mornings the elevators tend to be very crowded and the wait to go down tends to get long, we were happy with our rooms.

The breakfast buffet was excellent! It includes real coffee machines, an omelet cook that will cook your omelet of choice, and the jewel of the crown fresh breads and pastries just out of the over, The baguettes and croissants are as good as the ones in France and other prime Europe locations. To top it off, kids under 16 eat free so that the cost is very reasonable also.

The pool at the roof the hotel seems very nice. It was too cold to experience but I am sure that in summer the pool is a significant attraction.

Opposite of the hotel is a big shopping center with a huge supermarket. We used it a lot for some of our lunch and dinners.

Overall a very good experience. If we get to Barcelona again, I'll be sure to go to this hotel again.

Reviewed 7 April 2012

Stayed here for 2 nights with my wife.
Our room was clean and light but not particularly big. This was fine as we were only using this as a base for exploring
We arrived using the RENF and Metro service from the airport, to Cort and then onto Glories. The hotel is a short walk from the Metro. Opposite the hotel is a Tram stop on line T4 which was also handy for getting about.

Opposite the hotel is a shopping centre with a large Carrefour, Starbucks and various other shops and restaurants. We used the Carrefour to buy breakfast supplies and breakfast was expensive, and very busy (we travelled during the Easter holidays)

On the first night we used the hotel restaurant and sampled the 22 Euro buffet which was actually pretty good.

The hotel staff were helpful and polite and the general ambiance is that of a busy city centre hotel.

There is a small gym and pool on the roof which is pretty good but sadly despite our best intentions we didn't have time to use. Too much sightseeing and sleeping to do!

I'd stay again for a functional hotel within easy reach of all the sights, but not right inside the tourist district.

Novotel Barcelona is one of the very best hotels I've stayed at. It is a modern hotel, and the internal decor was to a very high standard - more boutique, than business. The porcelain shone, and I sampled both the bath - deep and luxurious - and shower - strong, if not exactly a power shower, but a a little unpredictable on temperature - ranging from lovely and hot to tepid, from minute to minute.

The free internet (accessed by a code supplied by reception) was super-speedy - a joy, compared with my fairly fast home broadband.

Breakfast was hearty enough for all tastes, ranging from continental to full American/British. I also had dinner one night - the restaurant was swish, the service impeccable, and obliging, and the food good, if not outstanding.

For business or pleasure, the Novotel Barcelona City won't disappoint!
