Review Summary

Photos and Review by

  • Rooftop pool with sweeping views of Barcelona and the sea
  • Spacious rooms with natural hues and pops of color
  • Even standard rooms have deep soaking tubs
  • Stylish restaurant with a buffet and several individual eating stations with small TVs
  • Bright, modern gym with flat-screen TV
  • Business-friendly amenities include eight meeting rooms and computer stations

Cons

  • Hotel is slightly on the outskirts of Barcelona's nightlife scene and tourist attractions
  • Some rooms have two twin beds pushed together
  • No hotel bar

Bottom Line

The 224-room Confortel Barcelona reflects the location of Poblenou, an old industrial area, and lacks the charm and personality of a smaller historical hotel, but is abundant in modern amenities that appeal to business travelers and tourists with eight meeting rooms, a rooftop pool that has nearly 360-degree views of the city, a gym, and a cafeteria-style restaurant. The hotel offers the typical services of other upscale chain hotels in Barcelona -- minus an on-site bar -- at more affordable prices than the nearby Hotel SB Icaria Barcelona, which has a more luxurious rooftop pool with a hot tub and large terrace.

Scene

Industrial-sized hotel for business travelers with rooftop pool and views of Barcelona

If you're looking for a competitively-priced hotel where you can always find a leather seat and access free Wi-Fi, Confortel is a solid choice. The spacious hotel has an industrial feel with a wide, clean-lined lobby that has soaring high ceilings and opens up to numerous functionals eating areas with flat-screen TVs, large windows, and semi-private working stations with PC computers. The Confortel Barcelona caters to both business travelers and tourists with numerous meeting rooms, a bright gym, and a rooftop pool with views of the city. The hotel is also close enough to the busier tourist areas of Barcelona.

Location

Situated in the industrial outskirts of Barcelona

The Poblenou district is an industrial haven for business travelers and tourists who prefer a quieter atmosphere and do not mind being 25 minutes by subway from the busier, congested tourist attractions and nightlife scene of Barcelona. It's a six-minute walk to the Llacuna subway station and from there 20 more minutes to Las Ramblas outdoor mall or historical sites like the Sagrada Familia church with its stunning intricate naves that were first constructed in 1882. The closest beach is a 10-minute walk. There are bus stops, a restaurant, a bike path, and cake shop on the block. More restaurants, a horchateria, and bars are a couple of blocks away from the hotel. The Barcelona El Prat airport is 17 minutes by car.

Rooms

Minimalist, spacious modern rooms with flat-screen TVs and free bottles of water

The neutral colored walls, boxy furniture, lack of carpeting, and minimal furnishings make these large rooms look even more spacious. Keeping with the style of the Confortel Barcelona, rooms have a lot of natural light, hardwood and tile flooring, red bursts of color, and clean designs. As a result, rooms are sleek and stylish but border on looking rather bare. Rooms come with flat-screen TVs, cold bottles of water in the mini-fridges, safes, free Wi-Fi, and desks, and and some have small living rooms and balconies that overlook Barcelona. Some guests complained about a lack of TV channel choices.

Features

Multiple modern meeting rooms, a rooftop pool, and a sleek gym

What differentiates Confortel Barcelona from its nearby competition is its numerous modern and bright meeting rooms that can be used for small groups or conferences. Meeting room tables and chairs can be arranged in a variety of different layouts like a banquet, U-shaped or cocktail layouts, among others. Meeting rooms fit between 14 to 250 people. The hotel also has a spacious gym with limited equipment, and a rooftop pool with a disability lift chair and views of the mountains, sea, and city.
