I would stay again

Really easy stay. We were a direct 20 minute walk to the beach and right next to the Metro. Room was cool and reasonable value... free internet was a major plus. Staff were helpful. Roof top pool area is lovely, albeit with a very small pool. Nice place to chill and use wifi/read a book. Good breakfast.

The best thing about my stay was...

This hote was amazing. i have stayed in a few hotels before, but location wise it was good. HOwever, the hotel itself was really good! the rooms are so clean, bit stufy at night then noisy with the doors open and also, it can be murder getting water. so stock up! but its so nice and so clean and the pictures are exactly what you see it. It was my partner's birthday and i pre-ordered roses and champayne and it was amazing how they did it. fantastic hotel. of al the ones i have stayed in this is the one.

A Splendid Hotel - highly recommend it

The hotel has a convenient location just 4 Metro stops from the main Cataluyna Square and La Rambla. The Metro was easy to navigate and the trains were frequent. The hotel itself is stylish and certainly has the 'Wow' factor when you enter reception; all staff were friendly and helpful and the receptionists spoke excellent English (putting our meagre Spanish to shame!). The rooms were light and airy and cleaned to a high standard; the bathroom was excellent with both a normal and rainfall shower head you could choose you style of shower! The freebie products in the bathroom were to a high standard and included nice touches such as packs of tissues you could easily take out with you for the day. The breakfasts were execellent and although a buffet style (warm rolls and fresh fruit platters were my favourite) the staff came round with coffee and were most attentive. The breakfast itself was served til' 11am which also made a difference. As well as the shopping centre across the road, it was only 10 minutes out of town to the biggest shopping centre in Barcelona! That was also by the beach to combine a relaxing day. Altogether a totally lovely stay and I'd highly recommend it.

Hotel Silken Diagonal Barcelona

Just returned from a weekend break and wish we could have stayed longer in this hotel. Great location close to both the metro and the tram, meaning the beach and main tourist attractions are easily accessible. Clean modern rooms,excellent breakfast and great views from the hotel pool. Would def stay here again.

Silken Review

Excellent hotel with friendly staff, very nice room, LCD TV, hairdryer, fridge, mini bar, bar on roof and in reception, lockable safe we got the breakfasts as well which was a buffet style with a big selection The hotel is right opposite a shopping centre with lots of shops, including a big supermarket and restaurants (avoid the mexican it was rubbish!). The metro is about a 5min walk away As a tip get a taxi from the airport to Espanya metro stop then get the metro to Glories which is the stop next to the hotel. This will cost about 20Euros plus 1.50 for metro, if you get a taxi all the way from airport to the hotel it will cost about 40euros! We would def stay here again!
