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.
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.
