Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Pulitzer Barcelona
Comfortable and competent
This was a good choice hotel for 3 nights in Barcelona. It did take us a while to find the hotel,even after walking past it four times! Its not immediatly obvious from the road-so ask.
The room was a reasonable size and very thing worked well. Fitments were new and the room was kept very clean. The mini bar was well stocked but why cant we have a kettle and cups? (Take a travel kettle). We ate out apart from breakfast which was excellent. Very helpful, friendly staff. Only downside was disturbance from outside in early hours as bins were emptied-but it is in the centre of a city.
My husband and I just stayed for the weekend at the Pulitzer Hotel and really enjoyed it. The hotel was clean and sleek, with, as most reviews have already mentioned, very helpful and friendly staff. They happily moved us to another room once we realized ours looked over the airshaft (I think there may only be one room on each floor that has this drawback!). Julian at the front desk helped us out with our dinner reservations and found us a great restaurant in the old town for dinner (called Limbo) which was excellent value for money. The room was small but chic and comfortable. The breakfast was perfect--and included in our excellent rate--eggs, sausage, cereals, fresh fruit, tortilla de patate, yoghurt, pastries, etc. The lobby/bar area is calm and inviting, although we were too busy enjoying the city to spend much time in our hotel lobby and bar. The location was ideal, close to the main metro station of Catalunya and easy walking distance to most major sights, but it was quiet in the hotel (it is on a little street off the main square). We're hoping to return one day with our kids!
This Is the One
Stayed 7 nights in this hotel in February 2005 and I would recommend it highily.The location ,facilities and very helpfull staff give it the edge over other more expensive hotels I have used in this city.THIS IS THE ONE
THIS MUST BE THE BEST HOTEL IN BARCELONA BUT DONT TELL TOO MANY PEOPLE
my friend and I had a wonderful 3 night break at this beautifully designed minimalist hotel with tasteful artwork abound! The hotel was just sooooo trendy....and service next to none. Reception staff really helpful, even organised an umbrella so we could walk round to the stunning Health Club which you get free passes for - we went to aerobics and yoga (in spanish!) which was fun. The cocktail barman Alberto made a mean cocktail or two and i would recommend his strawberry dacquiri or mint julep (which i wasnt sure about ...but loved)
The rooms are pristine with complimentary toothpaste and brush, shaving cream and razor...lotsa little touches like that. Great variety for breakfast which was a bonus for us cos we didnt think it was included! Luis at reception was so sweet and helpful too. We would go back in a minute....but am torn about recommending it in case it gets so busy we wont get a room next time!! The most perfect location a minute from las ramblas and plaza catalunya.
Fantastic All Round Hotel, 5 Star Service, Location and Accommodation
Having read the previous reviews on this site, I knew the Clarion Pulitzer was going to be a 'special' hotel and it certainly lived up to the hype!! Upon arrival with a group of friends at the hotel the reception made us feel most welcome and placed all of our rooms on the same floor in close proximity to one another. The hotel bedrooms (on the 3rd floor) were very chic and spotlessly clean with all the modern technology gadgets you can imagine (flatscreen tv, diming lights and ultra modern furniture!). The location of the hotel is unbeatable - just off the Placa De Catalunya and a 2 minute walk from the Metro and Las Ramblas. The maid service was very efficient - a bottle of aftershave accidently broken by the maid was quickly replaced by an identical bottle with equal contents!! Breakfast was also excellent, with a wide selection of pastries, croissants and cooked delights. I would especially recommend a venture up onto the 6th floor - to experience the view from the unique roof terrace!! Similarly the bar and lounge area is very relaxed and comfortable - ideal for a first-round of drinks before heading out into town in evening. Overall I could not fault the hotel in any way - the service matched that of many 5 star hotels and the magnificent atrium lobby with glass lifts made the whole trip more memorable!! Highly recommended and will be returning in the near future!!
Great staff,great hotel
just come back from a three night stay in barcelona(xmas present for my partner) i was a bit worried about finding a decent hotel because ive been to barcelona before and some hotels can be a bit dodgy.i looked at reviews from this site and trusted them and i wasnt disapointed.the staff at the hotel are very friendly and helpful(i asked to change rooms because we had twin beds instead of double and the girl on reception didnt even blink before giving us another room)also if you need help getting anywhere they are very helpful. the breakfast was fantastic, buffet style.you could have english or continental and waiters are very attentive always topping your cup up.i would highly recommend this hotel to anyone going to barcelona and will definately return.
Slick and Chic!
Had a wonderful stay in August 2004 at this brand new classy hotel, situated in the nicest part of Barcelona just off the Place de Catalunya and within walking distance of the Ramblas (5 mins), gothic quarter and port areas (15 mins). Contemporary decor including dark wood flooring and white furnishings. Beautiful bedrooms with crisp white bedding, flat screen TVs and large, stylish bathrooms with soft towels and bathrobes, plus a host of "little extras", which are better than some 5* establishments can offer, such as toothpaste and brush, shaving kits, cotton wool etc. Breakfast buffet was very good including full English choice (eggs, bacon, beans, tomato, sausage), plus ample continental breads, cheeses and meats etc. The fruit was exquisitely displayed and of good quality. Excellent knowledgeable staff and a stunning rooftop terrace/chill out area, add to this really special hotel. Highly recommended!
We spent 3 days at Hotel Pulitzer. The hotel is really at a very central location. Just 20-30 meters from Catalunia square, and the Ramblas. Most of the attractions are at the walking distance. The decoration is modern and chic, with a warm athmosphere. Lobby & bar area is spacious, which is quite rare in Barcelona. The breakfast buffet is very rich. The staff is very helpful. Rooms are a little bit narrow, but everything is in its place and clean.
Finally, if you are looking for a central, modern hotel with all the amenities and a very good service, Pulitzer is the right choice.
Coolest place in the city
The Pulitzer is the place to be in Barcelona. The hotel is brand new and it is beautiful decorated. Very, very chic. Located in Plaza Cataluña, staff is real nice and helpful. If I came back to Barcelona find me at the pulitzer
Great Style, Great Location
The hotel just opened and is a very stylish design hotel despite its connection to the Clarion hotel group. The location is excellent in a quiet side street off Placa Catalunya (i.e. can be reached very easily from the airport and gets you access to busses and trains as well as shopping areas around). The rooms are not huge but very beautifully designed (they also have rooms for disabled).
The staff is very friendly and provides great assistance in finding restaurants, bars and clubs (they know what they are talking about).
The hotel is currently setting up a chill out lounge on its roof top.
If you are looking for a centally located design hotel but don't want to spend millions this is a great choice...

Early transfer to Charles de Gaulle airport for our flight on from Paris to Barcelona and goodbye to our wonderful tour director, Vince Tassone and beautiful driver, Maria Rosa. She was one of only a few female coach drivers and gave all the others a run for their money. She was fantastic. Maria Rosa got out of bed to take just 6 of us to the …

After a very early morning we flew back to Dublin and then caught the bus back to Limerick. I loved Barcelona but was happy to get back to Ireland and here the irish accents.

This was a bucket list request of Jean and we did it, inspite of the lack of solemnity and general unruliness of our coloured, camera toting, loud mouthed, unwashed, souvenir hunting, ignorant, citizens of Barak Obama.

Basically, this architectural movement was trying to get away from the fairer socialist movement where everyone’s buildings were the same. The more conservative, wealthier liberals wanted to be able to show off their chattels e.g. electric light, gramophones etc and so built fancier buildings depicting this.

Then, off I went and the stupid thing started saying "right, keep left, left, keep right!" so I decided to stick to the right which happened to be correct (phew!!). I decided to play her at her own game and stick to the side mentioned first. That seemed to work - but for about 20 minutes I was in 1st and 2nd gear only in early afternoon home-going city traffic.
