Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Sleek, minimalist design with ample room space
  • Quirky room features like free-standing jet tubs
  • Chic outdoor pool on the 17th floor with great views
  • Great location near the beach and close to the Metro
  • Rooms feature flat-screen TVs, mini-fridges, and microwaves
  • Large, sleek fitness center with modern machines
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Scooter rentals

Cons

  • Not located near major Barcelona tourist attractions
  • Some views dominated by an empty building next door
  • Limited dining options nearby (and on-site food is pricey)

Bottom Line

Located in the up-and-coming 22@ business district, the Hotel Diagonal Zero is appealing for business travelers and beach-goers. The hotel's 262 rooms have quirky, modern elements such as touchscreen-controlled lighting and free-standing jet tubs. Upgrading to a suite provides significant extra space, along with a desktop computer and an impressive, spacious bathroom. Minimalist design dominates throughout, from the well-appointed business center to the ample outdoor patio spaces. One outstanding feature here is the chic outdoor pool located on the 17th floor of the hotel, offering great views. While the hotel isn't conveniently located for Barcelona's major tourist attractions, the beach and the Metro are a short walk away.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In 22@ District, an up-and-coming business district with a strong local vibe

The Diagonal Zero is located in the heart of District 22@, 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.

However, it is close to the beach and the bustling waterfront, and it is well connected via public transportation to the rest of the city and the main tourist attractions. Also, its proximity to the Ronda del Litoral, one of the main thoroughfares in Barcelona, offers easy access to the airport.

  • 24-minute drive to El Prat International Airport
  • 10-minute walk to Barceloneta Beach and the waterfront
  • 15-minute subway ride to the Barri Gotic (Gothic Quarter)
  • 18-minute subway ride to Picasso Museum
  • 23-minute subway ride to La Rambla, a lively street with acrobats and mimes
  • 23-minute subway ride to Plaça Catalunya, the heart of the city
  • 26-minute subway ride to La Pedrera and Casa Batllo, wonderful examples of unique Modernist architecture
  • 32-minute subway ride to Sagrada Familia Cathedral
  • 16-minute tram ride to Ciutadella park
  • 28-minute subway ride to the Museum of Contemporary Art (MACBA)
  • 13-minute drive to Güell park, designed by acclaimed Catalan architect Antonio Gaudi
