Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Big hotel with many amenities and both sea and city views
  • Sleek and modern rooms with a free minibar and free Wi-Fi
  • Large rooftop deck with long lap pool and lounge chairs
  • Nice restaurant and two bar/coffee shops
  • Well-equipped fitness center with a small pool
  • Modern lobby with fun pops of neon color
  • Some rooms have balconies with great views

Cons

  • Wall between bedroom and sink is clear glass (frosted glass surrounds shower and toilet)
  • Far from the city center

Bottom Line

Hotel Barcelona Princess is a big, 364-room hotel closer to the beach than the city center. Rooms are sleek and modern with lots of wood, glass, and stainless steel. The business center and lobby feature pops of neon color. Hotel highlights include a restaurant, two bars, two rooftop pools -- one lap pool and one off the gym -- and a wood sauna. Additional perks include balconies off some rooms, a well-equipped fitness center, free Wi-Fi, and a free minibar. The hotel is close to the beach and a large shopping mall, but the location isn't ideal for visitors who want to explore the major tourist sights of Barcelona.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

At the eastern end of Avenida Diagonal

Hotel Barcelona Princess sits right at the eastern end of Avenida Diagonal in District 22@. District 22@ is an up-and-coming business area in the Poblenou neighborhood. While the western part of the area still preserves the local flavor of a working class neighborhood, this part of it is characterized by high-rises and corporate buildings popping up in a once industrial area.

It is close to the beach and the bustling waterfront, but the city center is not within walking distance. A metro stop is located four minutes away from the hotel, and a convention center and a shopping mall are also nearby. Also, its proximity to the Ronda del Litoral, one of the main thoroughfares in Barcelona, makes for easy access to the airport.

  • 21-minute drive from Barcelona El Prat Airport
  • 10-minute drive to Antoni Gaudí's famous Sagrada Família Cathedral
  • 11-minute drive to the Port of Barcelona
  • 11-minute drive to nightlife of El Born
  • 11-minute drive to the Barri Gótic (Gothic Quarter) for medieval architecture
  • 12-minute drive to Mercat de la Boqueria for shopping
  • 13-minute drive to Casa Milá building designed by Antoni Gaudí
  • 15-minute drive to El Tablao de Carmen for flamenco dancing
  • 16-minute drive to Passeig de Gràcia for high-end shopping and dining
  • 20-minute drive to Nou Camp soccer stadium
  • 22-minute drive to Monestir de Pedralbes, a former monastery that is now a museum
  • 27-minute drive to Collserola Park
  • 29-minute drive to Tibidabo for panoramic views of the city and the coast line
