      Historical Traveler Reviews Silken Concordia Hotel Barcelona

      Great stay- but watch out for the air con

      from

      If you are going in winter make sure that you get the reception to open the window as the air con is off and the fan pumps out hot air. Made the mistake of thinking that the air con would eventually work but dripped wit sweat all night. Not pleasant.

      Apart from that everything else was great. Big bathroom, friendly staff, good breakfast and a clean/ new feel.

      30 min walk up to the Olmypic stadium.

      15 min walk into the Ramlas and to the Marina, so idea if you get your walking shoes on. Short hop on the metro to the main bus station, so helpful if you are getting the bus to Reus airport.

      Perfect stay, apart from the hitch with the heating, so would highly reccomend it.

      Great stay

      from

      Pros:

      -Price value!

      -Clean

      -Large room and bathroom

      -Comfortable bed

      -Minibar to store your own snacks

      -Nice/Friendly staff

      -Located near a number of parks and the Olympic stadium-a real plus if you are a runner or walker (exercise). Also off of Ramblas.

      Cons:

      -No real view, but we do not stay in our hotel room much.

      -The heat in the room-we had a bar tool that allowed us to open the window and we just turned off the heat. We didn't talk to the front desk about it because we solved it. But I think they would open the window for you.

      Terrible

      from

      The hotel was a disaster. The room temperature was as in a Sauna. The air conditioning system was not clock. The window could be offnen only with special code from rezeption limited, which in far not been sufficient. We were completely exhausted after two days

      Very impressed with this hotel! Would return

      from

      Stayed here for 2 nights in October. The hotel was really nice. The decor was very stylish, the room was large, with a big bathroom and a minibar of delights! We had a large bed, plenty of cupboard space and it was clean.

      We only had the breakfast once as it was not included. It was fine but I think it is easier to go and get your own when you are out and probably cheaper.

      The location is good as well. You are not near the ramblas and the crowds but near the metro and it is only a couple of stops to the Placa Espayna. Would definitely stay here again. Reccomend it.

      New neat hotel, fairly priced, but with some issues

      from

      The rooms are neat with airco, the bathrooms are nice. The view out of the room is not spectacular. The street (Parallel) where Silken Concordia is located is quite busy. What I didn't like about the Hotel is that there's no real bar (it's not cosy to play cards or whatever or drink something) and that the breakfast area is situated at the entrance of the hotel (again not so cosy).

      Breakfast is served until 10.30. Don't go and have your breakfast at 10.25, because personnel is rude and almost take your plates away while you're still eating. This was very annoying and definitely not friendly (but most Barcelona people are not so friendly to tourists in general I think, still I'm a Barcelona addict and I'm going back for the sixth time this year ;-)).

      Ps: We visited the hotel when it was only one month open. Maybe the situation changed since then.

      Really very nice!

      from

      Booked through Lastminute. Hotel listed as a 3 star but deserves 4 really. Very nice and clean and not too far from the main city centre. A 20 minute walk maximum. Breakfast ok too! Situated practically outside Poble Sec metro station so if cant be bothered with the walk, 5 minutes on the metro and you are at the Ramblas.

      Cant say a bad word about it really!

      Nice and comfortble

      from

      I visited Barcelona in August 2004, I booked the Hotel on Lastminute and was wary that the hotel may not be as nice as i had hoped. I was also concerned that it may be away from the main attractions. On arrival i was pleasantly surprised. It was a nice, clean + modern looking hotel. The staff were always helpful and smiling. The Ramblas was a 20min walk or 2 min metro ride. Everything was easily accesible and the metro system was easy to use. I would definately recommend this hotel to anyone.

      Fantastic quality, Great Location

      from

      I chose the Hotel Silken Concordia as I had stayed in its grander sister hotel Gran Havana earlier in the year through business so knew they were good quality. As this was a lot cheaper I wasn't expecting too much from it! We were extremely pleasantly surprised! The hotel is newly opened this year and of excellent quality ( a 4 star I would say). We were room only so didn't try the food (breakfast 9 Euros each). Rooms had 2 large single beds, satellite TV, good value mini bar (!) and excellent bathroom and toiletries! The hotel was also very modern and very clean and friendly. Rooms also have blackout curtains, which as a regular traveller is a must for me! Staff also speak very good English if your Catalan or Spanish isn't great! The hotel is situated on Avenguida Paral.lel and there are restaurants and bars on the doorstep (Basilica was very nice food and good value if you wanted to stay local in a modern setting-it's less than a minute a way from the hotel on the way to the Metro)

      The location was the bonus for us, thinking we may be out of the way a bit we were pleased to find a metro station straight across the road (Poble Sec)which is open Mon-Fri, otherwise the station has another entrance a couple of minutes walk up the road. We didn't try the walk from the hotel to the city because we walked so much around the city in the daytime my feet were too tired, but the Columbus monument/Magic Fountain(an absolute must at night!!!!)/Las Ramblas/Marina/were literally all within 5 mins on the Metro and no more than 3 stops-and to be honest the metro is so easy and super efficient we used it all the time... and it runs til 2am! We bought a 3 day TMB ticket for 11 Euros each which you could use on underground metro, buses, trains, trams, furnicular railway...more or less everything!! We certainly got our money's worth and found it much better value than the tourist buses (20 euro a day). (Taxi from the airport to hotel approx 16/17 Euro's.)

      All in all, I cannot rate the hotel or its' location enough...we had a fantastic time with not one complaint!!

      First class three star

      from

      Stayed in the Silken 19/06/04-21/06/04. The hotel is in an ideal location about 400 yards from the Pl Espanya. If you arrive at Sants Station you take the metro green line and get off at "Poble Sec" . Depending on your exit point the Silken will either be immediately opposite or approx 100 yards away.

      The hotel is of modern design and the double room I stayed in was very well porportioned and equipped.(much better than some of the 4 stars I stayed in)

      I would thoroughly recommend the Silken to anyone intending to visit Barcelona.

      Great hotel, highly recommended

      from

      A great hotel. A nice room with airco, saftybox and a fine bathroom. There was no noice from outside. The breakfast was great, with a big choice. We also had dinner, it was very luxurious but not expensive.

      The people were very nice and the service was good. There is a metro- (Poble Sec) and busstation right in front of the hotel. The hotel is located from a walking distance to Plaša d'Espanya, Monument a Colom, Parc Montju´c and the Ramblas. I highly recommend this hotel to everyone.

      Despite a number of well wishers on Facebook over the last couple of days today is actually Jill's birthday. Sort of an early start today as we're going to Montserrat to go up the cable car, see the monastery and climb/clamber to the summit. First job is to find the train station which according to the map is in Playa Espanya metro station so we head there. Problem is there are four entrances and only one of them leads to the train station so a bit like ...

The supporting pillars rise from the ground toward the ceiling like trees. You will have to see for your self as it is truly amazing.
