    Keep your distance to this hotel

    Never have I ever stayed at such a useless 4 star hotel before. Electricity went off for 30 min 2 times during our stay, no drinks to be found in the minibar, so if you get thirsty after 23 (when the resultant) closes you will have to wait until breakfast before you will be able to drink again. Staff will not be bothered to get you water, crazy. Staff is rude, ignorant and arrogant. The customer is never right, and be prepared to wait up to 45 min in order to check in our out, always 1 man/lady in the reception. Just a poor hotel.

    Lovely hotel with very modern deco, me and boyfriend stayed for 5 nights and we were pleased with our stay. The weather wasn’t warm enough to swim (March time) but it had an excellent pool/ outdoor area! The hotel isn’t in the centre of Barcelona buts it’s location is very close to the beach and it’s not far from the metro station.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Dear Customer Service, After my experience in Hotel SB Icaria in Barcelona from Sunday 1st of March until the check out today 4th of March, I must say I'm feeling completely teased and outraged. Since my first night in this hotel the temperature in the room was completely wrong: freezing cold. I checked with reception team several times about it and they only gave me silly excuses and a blanket. Unbelievable! But today it has been the summit. I heard a strange noise in the Junior Suite I had booked for through your website; suddenly a rainfall of water came off from the lights in the ceiling just close to my bed. You cannot imagine how scared I was, with all my electronic devices just few centimetres far from that crazy shower. I really felt pannic considering about electric shock because the water was going through the bulbs. This is a very severe neglicence from this property and it is completely unacceptable in terms of health and safety. I am extremmely disappointed and I really want a compensation for all this horrible experience that absolutely ruined my businnes trip. Looking forward to hearing from you. Noelia

    It's a very nice, clean hotel, that deserves its 4 stars. It's a little out of city center, like 10 minutes taxi ride, but in my opinion, it's an advantage, considering hectic city center of Barcelona.

    Functional hotel in a good location. Very good value for money. Downsides: the staff were not particularly friendly, and forced me to speak in English despite being in Spain/Catalonia!

  • 8.0.Very good

    -Staff are nice and friendly -Location is nice -We did not get a chance to see or use the facilities so NO comment on that one. -Room is clean but lack of toilet tissue and toiletries, I have to ask for 3 days we stay there. -Wifi was very poor, the hotel right across one of the bus stop near have stronger connection than theirs. I informed the reception but nothing happen. I have to go down to the lobby all the time I needed to use wifi in order to get connection.
