5.30am Just looked out the window and saw the lights in the city in the dark and it looked so pretty, have taken some photos :) unfortunately wide awake and hungry, breakfast doesn't open until 7, we still have an hour and a half!

6.30am So we've just arrived at the Dubai airport again, this time the experience was completely different and much improved. Had to ride on the train from the check in desks to the departure gates which was interesting :) currently sitting at a burger shack in the airport for breakfast as it was the only food we really knew. Our flight starts …
After a very long check in process at Ben Gurion airport and an hour and a half of delay while taxiing, we landed in Barcelona and took a cab to the hotel.
The hotel is rather nice, but kinda out of the way from town... .
We got an early check in and were upgraded to an executive room on the 23rd (and top) floor. :)
After some …
The weather didn't smile at us today, but we sure as hell didn't let it bother us.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Diagonal Mar Barcelona
This is a great hotel, new rooms, good sizes, nice firm beds. Get an excutive room, and you get a bath with a view! You actually sit in the bath with a sliver of a window, just enough for you to look out (at the sea if you're at the right side), but don't worry, nobody can look in! Modern looks all around, no quaint charm, if you're looking for that, go elsewhere. Ask for a high floor seaview, cityview you can see from the wait area at the elevators, you can really see the whole city from here.
A perfect Ending
My last destination in Spain was barcelona and our family chose the Hilton when it had just recently opned. Everything was brand new. The people there were very freindly and the rooms are very comfrtoble. The buffets had an excellent selection and the waiters were very helpful. I would say it is one of the best hotels I have stayed in for a while.
There are two Hiltons in Barcelona. The still-shiny-new Diagonal Mar, one block from the sea and the decrepit one on the Avenida Diagonal, more towards the city centre.
Excellent value for the price
We stayed at the Hilton Diagonal Mar for 4 days in Mid December 2005.
We had a nice Deluxe room (we were upgraded) in the 16th floor with a great view of Barcelona.
Because we got a special oppening price, we paid less than 450 Euros for three nights for two persons.
Service and hotel staff were very friendly and attentive.
The room was spacious and everything was okay. Breakfast was Hilton like which means very good quality and a good choice of food.
Transportation with public transportation Metro L4 (Station Maresme Forum) or Bus nr. 41 is very good and we found it very safe and comfortable.
So, if you can get a good price then this hotel is worth the money.
I am a Hilton Gold Card member and I was very disappointed with the new Hilton Diagonal. The staff was unfriendly and seemed put-out by any requests - they forgot to give us towels one evening and took 20 min to bring some up even though we told them it was a rush (my sister was IN the shower when she noticed the lack of towels).
The breakfast buffet was tasteless. Most of the food was dry or overcooked.
Also, the location is not good for sightseeing - you must hop on the metro about three blocks away and ride for 20 min to get to the good areas.
Very Nice Hilton
This hotel was very nice, beautiful decor and friendly staff. I am a HiltonHonors Gold member and have learned to be very cautious of the Hilton brand -basically a Hilton can be very nice or a crap-hole, one never knows.
The Hilton Diagonal Mar in Barcelona is a great place to stay if you are traveling for business - it is next door to the convention center as well.
One thing that was a bit odd was how long it took to do anything with the front desk (call cabs/check-in/ask a question/check out/etc...) I was there on business for 4 days and the hotel was packed so my experience may differ from most.
We stayed at the Hilton Diagonal Mar both before and after a cruise. The Hotel has only been open about three months but the service and accomodations seemed to be those of a well polished machine open for much longer.
Stayed at this hotel end of oct for three nights,the staff we found to be friendly and helpful,the rooms were first class,we had a room with a sea view, metro within a five min walk and very cheap,bus stop right outside hotel number 41 takes you to the centre remeber to buy your t10 tickets 6.30euros for ten journeys would recomend this hotel
Stayed here for two nights - "introductory rate" but still pricey compared to other hotels. Location is away from tourist center but transportation options are available, including subway and tram stops nearby. Hotel was nearly brand-new at the time of stay, having been open since Aug 2005. There is a nice mall across the street that has restaurants and a grocery store.
New Hotel. Excellent service, very nice staff.
This is all you can espect for a Hilton Hotel.
