I don't know we could have afforded this hotel if we did not use points for our stay, but we did enjoy this luxurious hotel. It is the kind of place you walk in to and just turn around in a circle to try to take it all in. Great location as well. Breakfast was abundant and delicious. Our room ran out of hot water the first night but we didn't have any trouble after that. We would stay here again if we save enough points but to book on our own it would very expensive.

I stayed here with my Fiance for 4 nights in May. The taxi from the airport to the hotel was about 40euros as they charge for your bags aswell. We were due to check in to our room at 2pm but arrived about 11am and could go staight to our room. The staff were really helpful and came outside to take our suitcases straightaway, they also gave us a really good map of the area.

Our room was really clean and quite big for just 2 people, we had massive window with a view of the hotel pool and the sea. The bathroom was quite big and had a bath and shower, we also had a minibar and a safe in the room. The room was cleaned everyday.
In the rest of the hotel there is a swimming pool (which we tried and it was really really cold), there's also a gym, sauna and restaurant but we didn't use these.

The hotel isn't in the centre but the nearest metro station is about a 5/10 minute walk and the beach is only 5 mins away. There is a shopping centre right opposite the hotel with loads of shops like H&M, Zara and there was even a Primark which hadn't opened yet, there's also a supermarket, restaurants and a starbucks.
The main street the rambla is really busy and easy to get pickpocketed so we were really carefull with any bags and cameras and were ok. There are also loads of souvinere shops here.

On our last day we ordered breakfast in bed (cost about 44 euros but was worth it) there was loads of food for 2 people and it was all really nice. You can choose from a menu but we got crossants, toast, bread rolls, fruit, cereal, meats, hot choc with cream and apple juice. Overall, we both thought the hotel was great and have no complaints. Would definately go back.

We certainly made a good choice. Room was ready when we arrived around noon, which is always a plus after a long flight. Although it may not be "downtown", excellent location. Just hop on the underground and go wherever you want. It's easy to use and you don't have to speak Spainish/Catalan. Great shopping close by, an excellent Tapa bar next door to the hotel that is reasonable for brekkie or whenever. We could leave our luggage when checked out, until we were ready to collect it later in the day. Helpful staff.

Stayed one night before cruise and one night after cruise due to flight timings. Don't believe I could have made a better choice. Upgraded both stays as Gold Honors member and have to say the Executive lounge was superb. Service all over hotel first rate, and would like to single out Galin in reception area as a very pleasant and helpful member of staff.

Loved the Hilton Diagonal Mar. Got a nice deal on Booking.com with breakfast buffet included for 3 nights. Excellent large rooms with posh bathrooms and very clean all around. Hard beds, but that is a problem everywhere is Spain. Best thing about this hotel is its location if you want get some sleep at night and relax, which is just what you can do - it's not near the Ramblas but in the northeastern end of town a couple blocks from the beach. Just a few blocks from the El Maresme Forum metro station and the no. 7 bus line goes right from the hotel to Placa de Catalunya. Very easy to get to all the sights in town. Helpful hint: don't attempt to drag your luggage through the Barcelona metro system especially if you have a lot of it as there are few escalators and lifts, and you'll be lugging it up and down endless stairs and transfer tunnels.

Hilton hotel staff reminded us of the actors on the BBC Hotel Babylon series: they were great fun and very helpful with directions, and quite obviously crazy in their off hours; as this was low season, they had a lot of free time on their hands to go wild behind closed doors, and they did! We speak Spanish and because of this one of the breakfast servers explained to us how to get tickets to the Sunday evening bullfights held at the Barcelona bull ring, which was awesome. The hotel is only 2 years old, has an outdoor pool (although too cold to swim in April), nice gym, locker rooms, and saunas. It's located across from a big indoor shopping mall with everything in it, including a huge Alcampo store for anything you would need: toiletries, food, drinks, wine, you name it. One night we did a picnic and bought fois gras, cooked shrimp, french bread, olives, and wine from the Alcampo all for about 10 Euros. The hotel breakfast was American-oriented with eggs, sausage, and a large cold buffet with lots of choices.

Barcelona has a rough side and we avoided the narrow dark alleys around the Ramblas at night as pickpocketing and muggings are common. If you stay to the lighted areas it is ok. Barcelona is also very transient, with lots of folks from all over Europe, Africa, and the Middle East. The metro was always packed with scummy, partied-out 20-somethings, and if you brushed up against them you'd want to take a shower afterward to prevent catching any number of skin or other diseases or bugs. One drawback about the Hilton is the far too expensive internet access, which is typical of European hotels. We punted on this and found a mujahideen internet cafe about 3 blocks from the hotel that cost 1 Euro an hour.

If you get to Barcelona go see Montserrat, which is about an hour out of town by commuter train. It's magnificent. The Hilton Diagonal Mar is a great choice for a hotel and I would definitely stay there again and recommend to friends. It's one of the best in Barcelona and up there with the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Arts, which has become a bit shabby in the last few years anyway, at twice the cost of the Hilton.
