Ann_and_philip stayed here on Sep 22, 2013 during their trip titled: Barcelona.
... the thousands of tourists on the turrets and walkways just staring back at me, I must admit, I felt a stab of exhaustion at the thought of hauling myself dutifully to this most exceptional of tourist spots. Instead, I walked the centre of the old city, wandered the Cathedral (my favourite so far), enjoyed watching the locals and tourists and spent time staring at the sky. It was nice.
I caught an overnight train to Barcelona, recklessly purchasing a ...
... train to the Franca station. It was funny because Nadzha went and asked the lady for tickets to France. The lady said it wasn't possible. She thought Nadzha was referring to the country France not station. Once that was clarified, we headed down and caught the train to our station. We arrived at our station around 10:30pm, Nadzha suggested we catch a cab to our place. Jasmine thought we could walk it and if we got lost then we would catch the cab. We walked down the ...
The weather has been so good to us during our stay here. Hope it continues for the entire holiday.
Today's Segway Tour meeting point is in Placa St Jaume at 10am. Got there nice and early and sauntered around these glorious streets. It's better in the morning since the streets aren't crowded.
Bernard was our tour guide today. He provided us with training. The last time we rode on Segways was back in 2010 in Prague and it ...
... they at least shut their door. I dont understand how people can do hostels, they sort of terrify me after I realized Id be sharing so much of whats considered privacy, like a bathroom, kitchen, shower, basically everything but my bed. And that doesn't sound too bad when you think about it but when you think about doing it with a bunch of wild people in their 20's the idea sounds horrible. Especially when most of the people on your floor are dudes. Noooo thank you. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Silken Diagonal Barcelona
Quite nice stay
The hotel seems quite new, but appears to deteriorate. The room was nice, but the bedlights did not work. Bath had a modern, but less functionable design. A lot of water on the floor, especially first time used. When the someone upstairs had a bath, his water leaked into our bath through the ceiling. The transparent glass walls enclosing the bath room may be OK for lovers, but I guess it is less suitable for many others. Location near Metro station. Nice view from window. Beds nice, but on the hard side. Breakfest fantastic. Staff did not respond to complaints about bedlights and the leak.
This hotel is the coolest place I have ever stayed. everything has been designed to give it a modern funky feeling. One thing worth watching is the hotel prices for food and drinks. We did not have breakfast here as it was to expensive (about 15 Euro each) but there is a big shopping center across the road with a good selection of cafe's. And being charged almost 15 Euro for 2 gin and tonics in the bar is a little high.
It's a good hotel. Modern, close to the city center ( 3 metro station). Look like a W hotel. The room are clean, europeen size. In the bathroom, you can find shaving stuff, dental product, and a lot of little things like this.
The problem would be the shower in the junior suite: you will transfort your bathroom in a bath! (But the junior suite come with a spa) The other thing is the service. But you have to accept the fact that you are in Spain and the service is nothing like the US.
The pool is on the roof and it's more a bath. It's really small. But, it's ok for the price.
Hotel silken diagonal
We had a great deal to stay here for 5 nights at end of August. hotel looks very modern and rooms look like they do on web sites. Area surrounding hotel dodgy at night, obviously a pick up place for prostitutes near the flea market. We had some problems with the bathrooms, which were very designer but didn't work! Public transport links good, but you need to use them to get into center of Barcelona. Once the tram routes are finished transport will be even eaiser. No quibbles when it came to getting our bill reduced following inconvenience of moving rooms and still no working shower. Would stay again but only at discount rate, wouldn't pay 350 euros which is advertised rate.
I stayed 5 nights at this hotel for joining the convention. The location was not so bad for going to the Convention center. But a little far from city center.
The reception clerk was bad. My trousers for laundry were lost. The reception clerk did nothing for it. Terrible.
The Silken Diagonal Hotel isn't really near anything of interest, but you can certainly get to anything you want to via the Tram which runs just outside of the hotel to Barcelona's excellent Metro system. The hotel itself is beautiful and modern, inside and out. The rooms are quite nice and modern with great beds. The bathrooms are also modern, but kinda quirky with a glass enclosed shower/tub combo visible to the rest of the room. Water tends to splash onto the tile floor, because it isn't enclosed enough, which can be dangerous. Another thing about the shower - it has a see thru movable screen between the bedroom and bathroom. If you are in the bedroom and move the screen out of the way, you clearly see the person showering. If you don't move the screen, you STILL see the person showering, only not so clearly. Kinda sexy if you are into voyeurism with your significant other. Kinda disturbing if you don't want to see great Aunt Hilda taking a shower.
