This Hotel is above average in it's appearance clean public areas lobby, hallways,and although we only have breakfast there the restaurant gets top marks.the staff are friendly and helpful The rooms are large and spacious great bathroom with good mini bar.(see photo's) Also this Hotel is in a ideal location.. But.....the place is so so noisy..slamming doors all the time you can hear every word spoken in the rooms adjoining us you can even hear the toilet functions of other guess throughout the night...Yuck!! There must be something wrong with the building structure of this hotel which makes it so noisy, Iv'e now read some other posts old and new made on here and its apparent the management are aware of this problem and I'm guessing there'e nothing they do about. If it wasn't for the noise I would have given it Four stars.
Good breakfast. Nice pool on the room. There was a lot of noise from traffic outside. Hard to sleep especially for the children. The room was not as expected and the staff was not very helpfull. Plus for the location.
Very good location and the breakfast service. Bed was very big and confortable..Bathroom was satisfactory. Our room was at the fourth floor which was newly refurbished. But the restof the floors are not. Dont think to use the pool it is somewhat kind of pool for kids. Noise isolation and the elevators need to be improved. Front desk was very helpfull. Very close to the La Rambla.
Had booked to go to Rome and with the mess up of monarch airlines we were able to pay a little bit more money and went to barcelona... well wow what can I say , this was a fabulous hotel, with really informative staff who were able to recommend the best places to eat and drink, but also to share places to visit .. we had an absolutely amazing 3 night stay in this really friendly , clean and spacious hotel .. will be back
We booked in for one night on 20.9.17 - the front office staff and entrance were excellent and we were impressed. We then went to our room - it was very small - the window looked out onto the roof and wall very close to our bedroom window. The room was tired and in bad need of a revamp. The bathroom light was a fluorescent light strip just laid on top of the perspex and all the wires could be seen. The shower was old and in fact the whole room needed an upgrade badly. I believe as we were only staying one night that is why we had this room. My travelling companions also had a room that was exactly like ours in bad need of modernisation. We did not complain to management as we were only there for one night but we definitely paid for a 4* hotel but did not receive the 4* after leaving the reception area. We had breakfast the next morning and the dining room and other parts of the hotel were excellent. However the room put me off and I would not re book this hotel again.
The hotel was excellent. The location is superb. The rooftop pool and sun terrace are super. The room was excellent and we were upgraded without requesting this. The staff were extremely helpful. I would recommend.
Very nice hotel. Great central location. Would stay there again. Good spot for touring around from. Can walk to many attractions & the beach area as well. A bit of an issue with the separation vote Oct 1st. A lot of demonstrations and noisy rallies. Huge police presence somewhat unnerving.
Great location, wonderful breakfast, brilliant staff. Only let down was that we were put in a disabled room on checking in at midnight on our first night. However a great member of staff moved us to a perfect room the following morning.
I have just returned from a long weekend in Barcelona and stayed at the Silken. It's really really nice hotel, helpful staff (with good English), amazing location - 2 min walk from the rambalas but quiet at night. I would definitely return!
A lovely hotel, great position and staff were so helpful when our cases were lost. They stored them for us when returned by the airline. Lovely breakfast and nice to have a pool at the end of a hot day. Thankyou Definitely would stay again.
