A sleek, modern hotel on the edge of Plaça Glòries and the neighbourhood of Poblenou, which have both undergone a lot of development in recent years, making this an ideal place from which to explore the city. As well as the great location, the hotel's rooftop has a pool, bar and restaurant, and splendid views of Barcelona.
This is an excellent example of getting a chain hotel right. The Novotel City Barcelona, part of the French Accor group that offers a variety of accommodation options around the world, offers a winning combination of location, design and services. Rooms (the lowest of which are on the 7th floor) are bright, well-appointed and have a contemporary look. Even the standard rooms have extras such as free tea and coffee, while in the more upscale bedrooms, privileges include a Nespresso machine, soft drinks and herbal teas. Effort has also been made with the hotel’s amenities, which include an impressive corner pool on the 19th-floor rooftop plus the Zity Bar, for enjoying a cocktail as you admire views such as the nearby Torre Glòries whose façade provides an impressive evening light show. For dining, there's a restaurant that focuses on Mediterranean dishes while the breakfast buffet is extensive. Families are well looked after at Novotel, thanks to the games area and specially adapted bedrooms, kids’ menus and free breakfasts. And for those who like to really take care of themselves, there’s a hamman and gym on site.
Location: It’s spot-on if you like to have
