In the heart of Barcelona stands the Silken Diagonal Barcelona hotel.The spectacular design of the Diagonal is fascinating, a real symphony of music and light conceived by the Catalan architect Juli Capella. The Diagonal Barcelona is a combination of elegance and service concocted with great attention to the needs of the guests in order to welcome them in an area mingling daring and grace, says Juli Capella. The doubts subside when you go up Diagonal Avenue and approach the building. You are first taken in by the facade designed like a piano keyboard with the black and white keys pushed to different levels, creating an astonishing overall surface texture. Every last detail has been examined. Even the rear facade has been given an artistic aspect dedicated to the city of Barcelona where the light plays a chromatic symphony and creates an optical effect. The hotel has a smart mixture of architecture, interior design, comfort warmth and service. The uniqueness of the hotels architecture and design continues inside, from the very entry inspired by an immense glass fishbowl or the white sofa that greets the visitors. The sensory experience persists in the curving ceiling with water bubbles on the surface and a reception desk that seems to emerge from inside the fish bowl. The materials used, wood and copper, create different moods that the visitors are invited to discover gradually. The vast corridors leading to the rooms on all ten floors of the hotel are bathed in a bluish light to guide the visitor to his correct room number. The hotel has 240 rooms, including 8 Junior suites and 12 Suites which have their own lounge area. The bathrooms all have showers and water jet tubs. The 12 immaculately decorated suites are located in part of the hotel with a superb view of the city and the Agbar Tower by Jean Nouvel. Special attention has been paid to decoration in the choice of materials and furniture, Inside the 240 rooms, the furniture in wood of contrasting colours and stylized lines provides an elegant, refined and restful composition. Each room has interactive flat TV screen and ADSL Internet connection. The ultimate pure delight is the rooftop pool and solarium with great views of the city.The hotel reserves the right to limit or privatize the 10th floor terrace for private group events Hotel Registration Number HB4207

awesome modern hotel

we really enjoyed our stay here. the location was perfect for what we wanted to do in Barcelona. The staff was friendly enough, but one specific girl seem really impatient and unwilling to help us when we were needing an extra bed in the room because of our friend missing her flight, and needing to stay with us. We were charged 69 euros for a foldout bed! The room we had had 2 couches in it that would have accommodated her, but the front desk clerk didn't even suggest it. I felt she was rude and very unhelpful. we asked her to help us out in some way, and she refused, saying her manger was not on the premises and having 3 guests in the room without paying for an extra bed was not acceptable. The hotel room was awesome, the restaurant was nice, but food very expensive, the servers really nice.The rooftop view is a dream! the bar ambiance surreal, drink price fair, service great. The pool is tiny, but so pretty. Very nice sitting area. would stay here again, but hope and pray "mean girl" wouldn't be there.

Perfect Location close to Tore Angbar Tower

Lovely walk through Diagonal Avenue through to beach and many lovely food palces close to beach to try paella. Location close proximity to travel with access across all city. Staff were incredibly helpful and helped in all aspects of stay.

Disappointed

The staff were friendly and the rooms clean. For the rest is was a disappointing experience. It was noisy, the swimming pool and roof terrace were closed for a day (only it turned out to be every day). The shower leaked and the view was terrible.

Silken Diagonal Terrific

We arrived at 9:15 a.m. prepared to check baggage until the 3:00 p.m. official check-in time and were told the room was ready. The room was marvelous with glass walls on two sides. Auto drapes could be raised for view or lowered for privacy by pushing a button. The staff was very helpful, room service very fast, and the food was delicious. The hotel is located directly across from the Hop On/Off tour stop and we were able to purchase tickets at the hotel. For all this we paid a very reasonable price. We would definitely stay there again.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Don't assume hotels in Barcelona have a a free airport shuttle because it is noted online in the hotel info. Their reference to an airport shuttle is the nearby public transportation.

Awsum 1st trip to Spain

I went there for a conference and the hotel was just one block away from the place for conference. The hotel was right next to glories (a market place) and very close to beach. It was a wonderful experience staying there.

Great couples break

Hotel was amazing. Even better than the photos on the site. Staff were very helpful and polite. The hotel is located on one of the nicest streets. There is a shopping centre across the road, metro station 2mins walk, tour bus and tram stop outside. Can't wait to go back

Fantastic first trip to Barcelona!!

The hotel was fantastic, the room was spotlessly clean, and it was in a great location. The rooftop pool and terrace was a great bonus, and even knowing the pool was freezing, it was still brilliant. Barcelona is the best city I have been to! And this hotel was amazing value for money, and topped off a great trip. I would highly recommend this to anyone!!
