Good location, near the beach. Very friendly and helpfull staff. Clean and large rooms. Great breakfast, altough only few vegetables available. The biggest disappointment was very poor wifi, slow and the connection was very unstable. It was practically usable only in the lobby...

We were on our honeymoon. This hotel is a great location from the beach, which is what we wanted. Room was great! Room smelt at times (sort of like a sewer smell). Buffet breakfast was great! Pool was nice! Staff were helpful.

Great location, 5 minutes from the beach, great selection for breakfast. The staff are very courteous, friendly and go out of their way to help their guests. Rooms are always clean, and roomy. If you visit this hotel walk 5 minutes to the 12+1 restaurant, we ate our evening meal there every night, we were a party of 6, and they accommodated each of our choices, food was excellent and prices good too.

Stayed as one of a group of 3 families. The rooms were clean and modern and the family room slept 4 very easily. The pool area was lovely and the hotel was happy for us to use the facilities, including the pool shower on our last day, when our flight was late in the evening. Only a 5 minute walk from the beach as well, we will definitely be back.

Overall a really pleasant stay, all the staff friendly, quiet and always happy to assist, room are more than big enough by European standards room was clean and had plenty of amenities. There is a handy ice machine on each floor. Breakfast was great was never busy which was good with plenty to choose and fill up ready for a day on the beach. Pool area was a bonus alway enough places to sit and pool was a nice temperature to cool off in. The gym was OK had treadmill & bike. I would personally like to see some weights in there but wasn't a issue went for a run most nights along beach. Ate in the hotel every evening and was exactly what I wanted after long days and especially after a late night run. The cafe food menu had platters sandwiches burgers etc all at very reasonable price and great portion sizes. Overall I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to be close to beach, will definitely be back!

I recently stayed at this hotel just for one night as I was stopping over in Barcelona to catch a cruise the following morning. I must say the location isn't too bad, you're a short walk away to Barcelona beach and all the lovely restaurants however you don't really get that spectacular view from your hotel room as the surroundings aren't too great. The hotel itself is quite clean and modern, the room seemed to look good too but I had a bit of a situation. The sheets on our bed were sort of damp so we called housekeeping and unfortunately the housekeeper on duty at the time didn't seem too pleased that she had to come up and prepare new sheets for us, not the nicest I must say. The look she gave us when we said the sheets were damp, oh and she blamed it on the aircon that as it's on all night and makes the bed so cold that it seems damp. I'm sorry but in all the places I have stayed in this has never been the case so that was a bit of a downer when we had this issue. However putting that aside, the food itself is actually much nicer than I thought it would be, breakfast buffet has a large variety of things much more than you would usually see in Spanish hotels. I would recommend this hotel for a short stay as stated in the title as it is a very basic hotel.

Stayed here for my friends wedding and couldn't really fault the hotel in any way. Rooms were clean, modern & spacious. Breakfast which was included was plentiful and lovely. Pool area although small was a sun trap and the pool nice. Only slight negative would be that you couldn't eat by the pool. But other than that a good location and friendly staff, all you need for a short break.

Very good hotel and its proximity to the beach is excellent. Hotel staff are very helpful and efficient. Thank you for being a part of a very lovely time in Barcelona We will be back and stay there again!

The location was good, 5 min from the beach. We knew the hotel was a bit away from the city center but that was the reason we choosed it. The hotel is a bit old and you can spot some water damage here and there and ther is some smell of mould, but nothing to annoying. The staff is friendly and helpfull and did their best to make sure we had a nice stay. We didn't have breakfast because my girlfriend is vegan so I can't tell you about that. We choosed a room with a big terrace wich was nice, and if you plan to stay there I suggest you do to. Overall a all right hotel, a bit pricey but heey its Barcelona during the high season so what to expect 🙂

Hotel SBIcaria is average. I do not recommend the breakfast, its to expensive and bad. The hotel beds are incredible good, I would like to have one at my home. Walk a few meters and you can breakfast local much better for less money. The location is very good because you can walk to the beach within 10minutes, at the boulevard near the beach is everything such as good restaurants, lounge and party area (I can recommend restaurant and lounge: CDLC). Taxi to ramblas is 7-8 euros.
