Pros

  • A five-minute walk to Barcelona’s Mar Bella beach
  • Some rooms have Mediterranean Sea views
  • Contemporary lounge and bar with large outdoor terrace
  • On-site Alacena Restaurant serving breakfast buffet, lunch, and dinner
  • Six meeting rooms plus a business center on site
  • Free Wi-Fi throughout

Cons

  • Immediate area lacks character
  • Bathrooms are small and beds can be uncomfortable
  • Breakfast not included

Bottom Line

Located five minutes from Barcelona’s Mar Bella beach, the mid-range EuroHotel Diagonal Port offers 115 simple, clean rooms with a modern, beachy vibe. The hotel is in Barcelona’s up-and-coming Poble Nou district, outside of the city’s historic Ciutat Vella (Old City). There's a metro stop within a seven-minute walk from the hotel that makes trips to the vibrant Barri Gotic in 15 minutes, but the area immediately surrounding the property lacks character and can feel shabby. Guests looking to stay within Barcelona’s Ciutat Vella should try the similarly priced Chic & Basic Zoo, which is more stylish than the EuroHotel and includes extra amenities such as free coffee and snacks.

Oyster Hotel Review

Scene

Modern hotel with contemporary touches, but overall conflicting decor

Housed in a modern building built in 2001, the hotel makes a muddled first impression. Oak-veneer walls with large reproductions of paintings by Catalan artists pop against black granite floors and sleek, contemporary furniture, while a large zen garden, overstuffed recliners, and display cases filled with jewelry create a conflicted, arguably tacky, aesthetic. A more thoroughly contemporary and inviting lounge with a bar and terrace sits off the back of the lobby and provides a nice place to relax after a day of sightseeing. Guests here run the gamut from tourist families to business travelers.

Location

A five-minute walk to Mar Bella beach, near a metro station 

Map of Eurohotel Diagonal Port

The Poble Nou neighborhood surrounding the hotel is one of Barcelona’s up-and-coming districts, and is home to the stunning new Design Museum of Barcelona along with plenty of street art, galleries, and start-up firms. However, the blocks immediately surrounding the hotel aren’t very charming and the neighborhood’s hippest areas take over 20 minutes to reach on foot. The biggest draw here is the hotel’s proximity to the beach, which is a five-minute walk from the front door. The Rambla del Poble Nou has a few good restaurants and bars and is also five minutes away on foot, while the Poble Nou Metro stop is a seven-minute walk from the hotel, with trips to Barri Gotic taking about 15 minutes. Taxis can reach El Prat International Airport in 20 minutes, though the trip can be completed in under an hour using the metro and the Aerobus.

Rooms

Simple, clean rooms with a neutral, beachy vibe

Standard Rooms are modern and clean, featuring blond-oak veneer desks, nightstands, and half-paneled walls with metal Art Deco-style accents that give the spaces some retro flair. The neutral color scheme lends the guest rooms a beachy vibe that matches the Mediterranean Sea views available from some rooms. The overall ambience is enhanced by chestnut laminate floors, comfortable, sand-colored chairs, and soft-blue throw pillows. The hotel also offers Family Rooms with extra beds and seating and a Junior Suite with sea views. All rooms have flat-screen TVs, minibars, and safes. Beds have brown satin runners, although the exposed bed frames are unattractive. Bathrooms are small, with granite floors and beige-tiled walls, narrow walk-in showers, and heated towel racks. 

Features

Lounge with bar and outdoor terrace, plus attractive meeting rooms on-site

One of the best features of this hotel is its lounge and terrace at the back of the lobby, where coffee, cocktails, and light snacks are served throughout the day. Both spaces feel chic and relaxing, with plenty of comfortable seating, though the plant-lined terrace doesn’t have much of a view. The surface of the bar itself -- a glass-covered architectural model of the Barcelona coastline -- adds a quirky twist to the space. A breakfast buffet with good hot and cold options is also available (for a fee) in the on-site Alacena Restaurant, which also offers decent lunch and dinner menus. 

The hotel has six attractive meeting rooms with plenty of windows, and audiovisual equipment is available on request. There's also a business center and free Wi-Fi. Laundry, and dry cleaning are available, as is room service, though the hours are limited.
