Lovely hotel, nice location (5 minute walk to beach) staff were fantastic especially Maria, Marti and Jorge! Pool was very cold! But in march probably to be expected! Jacuzzi was good! Food was great had dinner 3 nights! Will stay again!

I was visiting Barcelona because of the work-related training and actually training was held at the Hotel itself. This was reason why I selected to stay at this hotel in a first place. Hotel staff is very pleasant and friendly, breakfast was nice and I am sure anybody would find something they like to eat from selection they have, room is spacious and clean, and I love having kettle in the room so I can make coffee/tea in late hours or early in the morning before breakfast. There was complimentary box of coffee and tea selection that I very much appreciated. In addition to this where was free wifi. Although it does not have excellent speed in rooms if you need to work on something you can definitely sit in the lobby and have better connection. There is a bus station and metro station in a walking distance from the hotel. Hotel is located in the marina area. There is a grocery store close to the hotel as well as the bank in case you need an ATM. Overall I would recommend staying in this hotel.

We spent one night in SB Icarus Barcelona during a business trip. Party of 4. Very Friendly staff but old hotel, malfunctioning doors not scanning cards, old and low standard rooms, poor breakfast. I sincerely do not recommend this Hotel that is as well away from amenities of Puerto Olimpico.

Whilst reasonable priced and of fairly decent standard the customer service is very poor. Hospitality isn't at the top of this Hotels list. I witnessed the hotel manager shouting at one of the guests because he was asking about changing his room. The guy was getting quite nervous and started speaking fast to quickly remove himself from the conversation. We also found that at breakfast we were would constantly approached by staff to sign for our breakfast, even whilst still at the serving point. We were asked to sign the bill before eating on numerous occasions and the staff didn't seem to mind interrupting. I raised this with the manager and he said he agreed it wasn't professional but it continued to happen during our stay. If you don't mind bad service but need a cheap hotel close to the beach which if honest the surrounding resemble a war zone in Syria then the SB Icaria in Barcelona is perfect!

Stayed here for 4 nights and loved it. Room was lovely (bed really comfy despite previous comment). Breakfast was perfectly adequate with plenty of choice. Had an evening meal which was also lovely with big portions. Staff were friendly and patient with our lack of Spanish. Definitely come back to this hotel

Reception Staff were very helpful, Outdoor pool is not heated not sure if this is standard in Spain. Breakfast was average but lots on offer, the juice would run out, mentioned to restaurant staff and they would ignore you The location was handy for where we wanted to be. The room itself wasn't up to much, beds felt cheap.

nice hotel , nice staff , breakfast was was really good , we ate there as a family group of thirteen and the meal was excellent , it was a about a 10 minute walk to the nearest train station , and about a 25 minute to the columbus statue

Valentine special deal, could not fault. Superb evening meal with wine, upgrade to suite, room goodies . Lovely pool area , Gym, staff very helpful and happy. All in all brilliant. Will go back. Short walk to beach, taxis outside

We stayed for one night to recover from jet lag before boarding our cruise ship. The hotel is fairly close to the cruise pier (but not the airport, 40 Euro for a cab ride), and very close to the beach. If it weren't February, we could easily have walked the 5 minutes to swim. As it was, we enjoyed walking and people-watching along the promenade. Later we asked the front desk for dinner advice and were offered a discount at a nice restaurant on the water. The hotel restaurant was also very elegant and offers a good lunch with wine; the breakfast was included and offered a good variety for both U.S. and European tastes. We enjoyed the comfortable bed and wifi in the room. The window overlooked the pool and hot tub. The pool was nice, but the hot tub was perfect. The hotel also offered a fitness center and sauna. The only complaint I had was that I could hear the noise from the hallway through the door - but we got a lot of sleep anyway. We would stay here again.

Lovely, clean, wish staying longer. Reasonable price. Club sandwich snack amazing. Didn't want huge meal. Not using pool but looks very clean and tidy too! Receptionist and waiter very helpful. Thanks
