Historical Traveler Reviews Eurostars Grand Marina Hotel Barcelona
Quite hip and modern, very nice maritime theme through out the hotel.
VERY nice workout facilities on the top floor with georgous views.
Warm, yet sophistictated rooms. Try for the rooms on the maramagnum side, substantial views. Only downside not in a barrio where people actually live. Barcelona is it's people.
12/12/03 Christmas shopping in Barcelona! What a truly lovely hotel.
The attention to detail was just great and the staff were realy attentive to your needs. I would reccomend this hotel to anyone looking for 5*treatment. The hotel resturant was really good and the service superb. I would certainly return to this hotel.
Great View! Great Hotel!
We stayed at this hotel for a pre-cruise in early October. We had requested a junior suite and were upgraded to a bay view suite. It was absolutely fantastic. We had windows that overlooked the water as well as windows that overlooked the city. The location couldn't be more perfect, sitting at the base of La Rambla and close to all the action.
Definately worth its 5 star rating. We are going to be returning to Barcelona next November for a Transatlatic cruise next year and hope to convince our friends to splurge a little and the 4 of us stay at the Grand Marina.
Superb hotel in fabulous location
I selected this hotel for my trip to Barcelona having read the other Trip Advisor reviews .... and they were all absolutely right !
5* quality sums up this hotel - the location (5 mins to La Rambla, 5 mins to the marina), the breakfasts (free champagne!), the rooms and, particularly, the staff who recommended some fantastic, authentic spanish tapas restaurants. I also managed to book my rooms at a great rate and the hotel kindly upgraded my room as it was my birthday (although that may have been my friends but I cannot get them to admit it !) - would certainly recommend taking an upgraded room, preferably one at the front of the hotel with balcony and Japanese shower.
My husband and I just came back from Barcelona Oct 9th -Oct 12th. The Hotel was fantastic, the rooms were great and the staff could'nt do enough for you. We also we lucky to be able to use the rooftop pool, the views from there we great. even the pool was freezing. The breakfast in the morning was great and the waiters were very helpful.
We would recomend anybody to stay in this hotel it was worth paying the extra money.
A true pleasure!
Marvellous - this hotel oozes class and offers a 5 star feel as soon as you enter the lobby!The staff were superb - helpful, extremely efficient and warm and friendly (a true breath of fresh air when compared with many of the other hotels of a similar rating I've stayed at across Europe).Room was superb (paid 220 Euro's per night) and views of City are excellent.The position of the Hotel is also first class as it is only 5 minutes walk from the Ramblas and 10 minutes to the best fish restauants at Palau de Mar as well as being right next to Port Vell and it's facilities. I found it's location to be relaxing and peaceful and I was very pleased we chose this place as the noise levels at the other end of the Ramblas were horrific!Keep up the good work - I'll certainly be back!
Very Nice Hotel
I stayed here in August and September 2003, and it is a very nice hotel. The decor is first rate, very modern and sleek, and the materials were very inviting. The rooms have hardwood floors and granite and marble bathrooms. The walls are paneled in attractive cherry wood.
The service was excellent, and the location is near the Ramblas, but away from some of the hustle and bustle.
I would recommend this hotel for anybody traveling to Barcelona.
What a hotel!
This is a great hotel, in a good location only 5mins walk to the Ramblas, 15mins to the beach and in close proximty to loads of bars and restaurants. The view from the 8th floor is fantanstic and we made good use of the roof top swimming pool, jacuzi and sauna! We were greated with a smile and the service was fantastic. Anything we asked for we got (inc. late checkout till 4:30pm). The decor was plush and in true 5 star surroundings. The rooms are all of a very good size with great a/c, and some include balcony, and/or seperate power shower with multi-jets! The bath tubs are all jacuzi! In general, slightly on the pricey side but if you can afford it, it's definitely worth the money.
Try avoid ordering room service or from the bar - expect to pay 5 star prices!
Without a doubt,the finest hotel I've ever stayed at. Stayed in June,pre cruise for two nights. Everything about the hotel is first class,very modern in design and decor.
Super New Deluxe hotel
Located right in the heart of Barcelona. A superb new hotel and we had a super price through hotel-... - Hopefully we will be there again soon

... French grad student working on a thesis about Margaret Atwood. Of such encounters travel friendships are forged, and they invited me to come and stay with them if I eventually made it to Paris. I did get there - a full year later - and they took me into their home for my entire 3-week stay. No small thing considering the, uh, coziness of Parisian apartments and the fact that they barely knew me! But I had a wonderful time, our friendship was firmly ...
... all the touristy places, the town cathedral, the Olympic stadium, lots of museums, the seminarians quarters, which she described as "the backside of the priests factory", some of Gaudi's buildings, the waterfront area and "The Rambla's". We drove past all the city highlights and stopped for photos at a city lookout which gave fantastic views over the whole city. The area is surrounded by beautiful gardens which are well ...
... It wasn’t until walking the city with our wonderful tour guide, Alan that I began to truly appreciate this city’s unique design, or perhaps lack of design. The city is small and bound by is geography, there isn’t much one can do when enclosed by mountains and the Mediterranean. Therefore, the streets, in the Gothic part of the city, are narrow and rather cramped. My experience with Barcelona was magnified ...
... the Basilica Next a visit to the open air mercato off of la Rambla. Black hog ham, fresh fiigs, olives soaking in spicy tomato based oil and fresh coconut were tasted. I don't recall seeing any ground hamburger for sale. Butchers and fish vendors take great pride in their food - rightly so. Dinner was at 8:30 (opening time) at Augut . Chad had tourbot (fish) , herb salad with amazing soft cheese . I enjoyed Potato au gratin with fungi , steak - done ...
... corner because this one was full. I had come across the BE Mar hostel previously so I knew which way to walk. I was staying in a 16 bed dorm and it was an utter mess!! People had left random stuff all over the floor. Underwear. Single socks. Rubbish. Toothpaste. It was by far the messiest state I've ever seen a hostel dorm room in. I put my stuff in the locker and went and met up with Kate and Steven from my last dorm room for some breaky. We found a restaurant on La Rambla ...
