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

... around the beach. It was gorgeous! I was curious if it was warm enough to maybe even swim. Once I put my feet in the water, I realized it was pretty cold. That and the fact there was a breeze in the air, I figured that it would be quite a cold swim. I passed on that. I went back up the the apartment and freshened up. Once I finished up, I went back out to walk around a little bit more. I ended up stumbling onto a tapas place for dinner so I had ...
... and they go to bed around 1am or so, including the two children (they are still on summer break). Then they all wake up by 7am. Basically they sleep 5-6 hours during the night and 2-3 hours during siesta time. This all depends on the type of job a person has of course. I think this should change a little once they all go back to work and school. Keep asking questions because I forget to explain some cultural differences, I’m adjusting quickly! Hasta luego!
... to the Spanish culture, but delicious. After dinner we walked the street and enjoyed some ice cream. On a side note...the ice cream in Spain is delicious! It is extra creamy and punched with flavor :)) The best we've had yet was in Torremolinos! A few favorite flavors include oreo,nata (vanilla), and dulce de leche. For Colorado Sweet Cow fans, team up! On our walk back to the metro we found thw hotel where Aunt Jen and Uncle Michael stayed ...

Lots of gesticulating and a couple of calls by the cabbie to ... somebody??? and we found the block where the hotel should be. No sign, just a beautiful old wooden door with the number 85. As it turned out, the hotel is ...
