Bottom Line

The NH Barcelona Diagonal Center is a comfortable mid-range hotel, but its location outside the city center may put some guests off. The 129 spacious rooms have handsome, modern decor and nice touches such as flat-screen TVs and minibars. Suites are equipped with espresso-makers. A breakfast buffet is offered in the mornings, but it's not included in all rates, and dinner is only available on weekdays. There’s no pool or gym, though there are meeting rooms and a business center. For travelers willing to sacrifice some amenities for a central location, Hotel Santa Agusti is a good alternative with a free breakfast.

Oyster Hotel Review

NH Barcelona Diagonal Center

Scene

Modern hotel with contemporary decor that attracts couples

NH Barcelona Diagonal Center is part of the NH Hotel Group, a modern chain of international hotels. Like many of the other NH properties, this hotel is clean and contemporary, with glossy floors, gray walls, and a blond wooden front desk. Sitting areas hold boxy armchairs and sofas paired with burgundy rugs and abstract black-and-white photos. There's also a trendy restaurant with wooden tables, gray or red chairs, and photographic abstract wall murals. Most guests are business travelers, as the hotel isn't in a convenient location for vacationing visitors.

Location

Far from the city center, but within walking distance to some attractions and public transport

This hotel is situated outside the city center in the Poblenou neighborhood. While the immediate area can feel a bit seedy, there are bars, restaurants, and a few nightclubs nearby. It’s a 17-minute walk to the beach and 13 minutes to the popular Citadel Park. Sagrada Familia is a 22-minute walk away. The nearby metro (a six-minute walk away) gives access to attractions farther afield, such as the Gothic Quarter and La Rambla, which are 20- and-24 minute metro rides, respectively. It’s a 20-minute drive to Barcelona Airport.

Rooms

Contemporary rooms with flat-screen TVs and minibars, plus suites with separate living areas

NH Barcelona Diagonal Center has two types of rooms: Standard Rooms and Junior Suites, the latter of which offer separate living rooms. Decor is dark and masculine, with hues of chocolate brown and cream complemented by white bedding and silver accents. The abstract photo murals of coils of hay above the bed give the rooms a trendy atmosphere. Amenities include work desks, flat-screen TVs, minibars, air-conditioning, and -- in Suites -- kettles and espresso-makers. Clean and modern bathrooms have shower/tub combos, toiletries, and hairdryers. Views from rooms vary, and while some look out on the city, others have views of the outer wall of a nearby building.

Features

Breakfast buffet, dinner during the weekdays, room service, lobby bar, and meeting rooms

Like most NH brand hotels, the NH Barcelona Diagonal Center provides the basics: dining options and business features. The hotel offers a breakfast buffet with fruit, pastries, cold cuts, and hot dishes upon request, but it's not included in all room rates. Early bird hours are offered daily and there are late hours on Sunday. During the weekday, the restaurant offers a Mediterranean dinner menu, plus room service, but there's no weekend service. There’s also a lobby bar that serves a variety of alcoholic drinks and a convenience store with sandwiches, drinks, snacks, and salads. Business features include four fully equipped meeting rooms that hold up to 80 people, a public computer and printer, and free property-wide Wi-Fi. Underground parking is available for a daily fee.
