During our 6-day stay in Barcelona, we were blown away by the beauty and perfect location of our hotel. Honestly, we could have spent our entire trip without even leaving the premises. We were lucky enough to meet some truly wonderful staff members who made our stay unforgettable. One standout was Francisco, who gave us some of the best bar recommendations. We also loved spending time with Eudra and Jenni, who were always so pleasant and welcoming. And let's not forget Anne, who kept us coming back to Coye. The team at Noxe, Carla, Liam, and Louise, were also amazing and we loved seeing them there. Needless to say, we can't wait to come back here.
Upon arrival, we were met with a surprising lack of professionalism from the front desk staff. 😤 Despite our room being cancelled without any prior notice, their attitude was aggressive and unapologetic. 😠 It was only when a room later became available that we were given one, making their claim of being fully booked false. 🙄 No effort was made to rectify the situation and they showed no concern for our satisfaction as guests. 🤨 In the end, they simply blamed reservations being off for the day. 😒 Needless to say, my stay was a major letdown and did not meet the usual standards associated with this hotel chain. 💔 My name is Ahmed Abouelela and I stayed in room 1006.
The room was 🔥, we had a gorgeous room on a high floor with an 🤩 view. However, we had some 🚨 issues that put a damper on our stay. Our room was 💸 charged incorrectly and getting a refund for the fraudulent charges was a 🕵️♀️. Thankfully, management 👏 helped us and we eventually got a refund, but it was a hassle of 🥊 and 📞/📧. Sadly, it has left a bitter taste about the hotel. I wouldn't 🛏️ here again when there are so many other fabulous hotels in Barcelona.
My significant other and I had an unforgettable stay in a fabulous hotel in Barcelona from 29 October to 3 November (5 nights) to mark the end of my successful battle against cancer. The staff at the hotel were incredibly warm, attentive, and provided excellent service. We were fortunate to be given a room with a breathtaking view of the beach on the 18th floor. Every morning, we were greeted with a warm welcome from the hostess and waitresses at the Fire restaurant during breakfast. Our dining experience at Noxe Japanese restaurant on the 26th floor was also enjoyable. The hotel's spacious indoor and outdoor areas made it convenient for us to move around and access the beach. And let's not forget the stunning night view of the Yacht design Hotel and its surroundings! We highly recommend this hotel - cheers to everyone who made our stay even more special, including the amazing team at the Chat with us service and the housekeeping team, as well as Dikra, Lidia, Rod, Daniel Madeddu, Florencia, Andrea Fuentes, Jenny, Alfonsina, Yrving, Cindy, Duvan, Hisham, Nina, Anna, Guillem and Victor from the front desk, W Lounge and Fire Restaurant, Noxe. Thank you all so much!
During our trip to Barcelona, we stumbled upon this hotel a few summers ago while our cruise was porting for the day. When we planned a longer stay in the city, we immediately knew we had to book a room here. The entire experience, from check-in to check-out, exceeded all of our expectations. The on-site dining, bars, and room service were all top-notch. The added touch of a birthday surprise for my husband during check-in made our stay even more special. The front desk and concierge were always helpful in recommending must-see sights and activities in the city. We can't imagine staying anywhere else on our next visit to Barcelona. The location, right on the Barceloneta and close to various restaurants and bars, is unbeatable. Even at late hours, the beach appeared to be constantly bustling with activity. The bellboys and valet were extremely efficient in arranging transportation, making it easy for us to explore the city. Despite not speaking Spanish, we found it quite simple to navigate our way around.
