This wonderful hotel has a perfect location right in the city center, less than 10 minutes away walking from Plaza Catalunya, Las Ramblas, the Gothic quarter, and next to the famous Born district - popular for its design shops and tapas bars. The hotel combines old style with contemporary elegance, a recently restored modernist facade of the XIX century with a contemporary interior design and decoration. In summer guests can relax in the swimming pool on the roof and enjoy the views having a drink at the terrace bar. If you are hungry, Corella restaurant serves delicious Mediterranean dishes all day long. The hotel's 145 ample, elegant, and luminous rooms are equipped with all facilities, such as air conditioning, wooden floors, satellite TV, mini bar, private bathroom, hair dryer, so that both business and leisure travelers feel like home. FREE WIFI in Lobby & Rooms Parking available: 24 euros per day

city trip

The hotel is approx 15 mins away from Placa Catulyna square,so if you dont mind the walk its a great location From the moment we arrived at the hotel, the staff were so helpful and friendly. the room on the top floor was wonderful, it had tea/coffee facilities; bath robe with slippers and it was quiet, hence I had a good night sleep. A few steps up to the roof led to a small pool with a bar, it was great to come back after sightseeing all day and cool down in the pool. I would definitely recommend this hotel, particularly for couples.

Perfect Hotel!

We loved our stay at the NH Podium Hotel. If you don't mind a half mile (800 meter) walk from Placa Catalunya then its perfect location to everything going on. The hotel was very clean and modern. One of the best parts was a roof top pool and bar. We stayed in April so the bar was closed, but it was almost better that way as there were no crowds. We bought a few drinks and brought them up to the roof every night to watch the sun set. Also the morning breakfast buffet was affordable and delicious. All in all, a great experience.

Good location but average amenities

We stayed here for 3 nights. The location is very good. In a quiet residential neighbourhood about 0.5 miles from Las Ramblas and even closer to Arc de Triomphe. Also close to various metro stations. However, the amenities are at best average. Our room did not have a kettle and tea/coffee facilities. This is bog standard for any 4 star hotel and when asked they said it was only available for superior rooms! So we had to pay 2 euros for a standard tea each morning! Again when we asked for swimming pool they said it would open only in summer despite us confirming at the time of booking that the pool would be open. The breakfast is also overpiced at 22 euros per person.

Four Nights in Barcelona

My wife and I stayed at NH Podium for four nights, October 15-19. We were greeted at the reception desk in English - what is it about us Brits that everyone can tell even before we speak? Check-in was quick and painless. Our room was directly by the lifts so was very convenient but on the negative side, we heard every arrival at our floor. Our booking was for room only, although breakfast was available either via room service or in the restaurant. We did enjoy breakfast on one day and were pleasantly surprised by the variety and quality of the food though the price was a little steep at 18 euros each for a continental. The location is pretty good, only 3 minutes walk from the Arc de Triomph and about 15 minutes from Plaza Catalunya/north end of Las Ramblas. We had only two criticisms of the hotel which were; that the walls are stud partitions with very little soundproofing. Consequently we could hear every conversation our neighbours had as well as their TV. It was fortunate that they were not too energetic in the evenings!; the TV had only 8 of 12 available channels working and of these, only one was in English - Russia Today! We don't go on holiday to watch TV but it would be nice to be able to catch up on news from home etc. Perhaps we are spoilt but most other hotels we have used recently have had some form of cable or satellite TV connected, with something for everyone. All in all our criticisms are minor ones and we would defintely recommend the hotel to other travellers.

Dining tip: Not Applicable

Ask the price of drinks in restaurants before ordering. One bar charged us 15 euros for a small glass of wine and a large beer. Another restaurant charged nearly 20 euros for a half bottle of red wine and 15 euros for 2 beers.

Wouldn't Recommend

Hotel staff was very unpleasant and not helpful. Matress was extremely uncomfortable and the room had some wear to it. The weight room is outdated, falling apart, and unsafe to use. This may have been a 4 Star in the 90's, but more like a 2-3 star nowadays. I would recommend staying at a hotel further down the Gran Via towards Las Ramblas, in the heart of l ' exiample.

Romantic Week In Barcelona

My new husband and I began our honeymoon in Barcelona at the NH Podium. They set us up with what was probably the best room in the hotel; a junior suite in the front with high ceilings. It was very quiet and comfortable. The location was very central and the staff was friendly and helpful. The only negative was the payed internet; it was expensive and slow.

Perfect location for city break

This is very good hotel in the north east of the city and walking distance (10-20 minutes) from most of the main attractions. Also very near a station of the excellent Metro system which is well worth getting your head around. Rooms are well designed, spacious and very clean. The rooftop terrace is great for sunbathing and a quick dip in the pool. I marked the staff down as they were a little pushy with the tours and shows where they got commission. Nevertheless I would thoroughly recommend it as a base from which to see this fantastic city. BTW the Cafe across the street is great value and very friendly.
