Hotel Front Maritim

A city passionate about life, style, contrasts. I do not ask to conquers and drunk.

The hotel was just across the street from the beach so I was exactly where I wanted to be. The hotel room was very modern and minimalistic. After I arrived and checked in to the hotel I got into my swimsuit and spent some time on the beach. I love Spanish beaches. The water was warm and colorful, the women were beautiful and topless, and the …
... in America for people to be lacking in political insight or education, in Portugal it seemed as though they had abandoned their political futures. The only hope anyone seemed to have was the hope that the European Union would unify Portugal with the remainder of Europe and the political decisions of the EU would be beneficial to Portugal. Despite this less than 35 percent of Portuguese voters decided to vote in the European Parliamentary elections.
... wasn’t the best shot. The goalkeeper made the mistake of coming out a little too far and the offense just followed the ball in and gave it a little tap. After that first half goal by Atletico there weren’t any goals until the second half was over. They gave them 5 minutes overtime and as if by a miracle Sergio Remos put in a goal and me and Hailey and the two others in the bar went crazy. My heart was beating so fast and I was so so happy that we had kept ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Front Maritim Barcelona
Such a nice hotel with beatiful beach up front ,very generous open breakfast buffet.Not very far to the city center and good for to rest at night instead of staying in noisy street hotels.Helpful and very professional hotel employees ease your stay.In addition to these you may have a free soda a some fruits as complementary any time.Moreover in the afternoon have your coctail or whisky with snacks in the lobby area as another complementary offer.If you dont believe me go and stay there..
Hotel was okay, decor nice, but this hotel still had plenty of problems. It does have nice extras like free bottled water on the floors (we never saw any fruit though) and free internet access.
Went to Barcelona for 3 days and stayed at Front Maritim. The hotel is situated outside the city centre, at the seaside, in a "new" neighborhood, which was a bit boring, but the nearby metro (safe) will take you to the city within 10 minutes, so we really enjoyed waking up to views of the Mediterranean Sea every morning. We had our room upgraded to business and had the only room with floor to ceiling windows - very beautiful furniture and a lot of "extras" in the bathroom - makeup remover, nail polish remover, toothbrush and so on - all the little things that you always forget. A nice touch. Outside the rooms we found refrigerated water and fruit free of charge and every afternoon there is a coffeeshop with coffee, tea, soft drinks, spirits and snacks also free of charge. I do not have one single complaint about the hotel, the staff, the delicious breakfast buffet - it was all perfect - I would recommend it to everyone wishing a quiet night after a busy day of shopping, dining and sightseeing in Barcelona. I would love to come back.
Off the main track but fine hotel
My Girlfriend and I stayed at the Maritim for a weekend in October.
Arrived by cab from the airport ( 25 euros ) , the cab driver had no clue where the hotel was and drove us to wrong hotel at at first. I suggest taking a very clear map to show the driver or tell him its near "Selva De Mar" ( the nearest Metro station). The hotel staff are very helpful and spoke excellent English. The room itself a little smaller than expected but very well appointed. Breakfast was very good and was the evening meal. I would suggest using the Metro at all opportunitys.
Quick, frequent and goes everywhere. The local station is a few blocks away from the hotel but safe even at night. Overall a little of the beaten track but very good hotel
My Partner and I arrived at this hotel (after a 25 Euro taxi ride from the Airport 20 mins at 6pm) to be greeted very warmly at reception and given our room keys.
This modern, friendly hotel is ideally situated if you are planning to spend more than a weekend in this great city. Its located just across the road from the beach, so is ideal if you wish to end a busy day's sightseeing by relaxing on the sand or taking a swim.
We traveled to Barcelona in Feb. 2003 and stayed at the AC Hotel Front Maritim and thought it was great. The staff was very helpful and the amenities are nice. It is great to have the complimentary water (with carbonation and without) as well as the daily fruit available. A hidden jewel was the soft drinks, sandwiches and mixed drinks also available free of charge through the afternoon. Rooms were austere but clean and functional. I'd stay there again. Just be sure to write the name down.
The taxis at the airport were not that familiar with it.
Not One Complaint
Visited March, 2003. Not one complaint. Very clean; housekeeping did an excellent job. Hotel staff very pleasant and helpful. European buffet continental breakfast well worth it & afternoon coffee/tea/soda/spirits services in hotel lounge a nice touch. Approximately three blocks to subway (safe) and depending upon your itinerary, 5 or 6 stops until you reach the inner City of Barcelona.
Stayed there summer 01. Off the path a little but right across from the ocean and close to the subway. Very trendy inside. Staff very helpful.
