What I liked:

I split my time 4day trip between this hotel and another that was highly rated by Tablet users. I wanted to spend time at the beach and as an L.A. resident I know how hard it can be to make it to the beach when you're in an exciting city. The beach is steps away. From the roof pool you have a gorgeous view of the Frank Ghery sculpture. The beach is as crowded at night as it is during the day. Definitely get there by 9 if you'd like to claim a space. I'd read reviews that the second floor facing the street was awful so when I learned that's exactly where I was staying I asked for another. The very friendly clerk tried in earnest to change my room but they were full and it wasn't that bad. Someone had a fight at about 2am beneath my window, but it was a weekend and it didn't bother me much. Only a 7euro ride to the center of town and the bus was easy to take too. Loved my stay.

What the hotel could do better:

Nothing, had a wonderful stay!

Hotel Description

We’re obviously partial to independent little boutiques, but we freely admit that sometimes, big is beautiful. And so it is, in the case of the Hotel Pullman Barcelona Skipper. With some 241 rooms and suites, and existing as it does under the ownership of the French hospitality giant Accor, it’s no mom-and-pop operation. But with its combination of sleek contemporary design and professional luxury-hotel service, it sets itself far apart from the average chain hotel.

The rooms are open to the midday sunlight through full-length windows, and the hotel’s coastal location, near the Olympic Port, means you have views of either the Mediterranean or the city. The style is crisp and contemporary, more professional than artistic — the design is attractive but keeps to the background. And from here you can choose between the options of beachside Barcelona or the attractions of the old city — whether by taxi or metro, transportation is not an issue.

And while the Skipper caters very confidently to business travelers, with enough conference facilities to host a convention, it’s equally geared towards leisure travelers. Two outdoor pools and a spa and 24-hour fitness center keep guests active, and the two restaurants, Malbec and Syrah, don’t discriminate between romantic dinners and business lunches.
