Eurostars Grand Marina Hotel GL
A great by the sea 5 star hotel
The Eurostars Grand Marina Hotel GL is a great by the sea 5 star hotel. An hotel where everything seems luxury, exclusive and Avant-garde. The building, which resembles a transatlantic liner, is often mistaken for the ships and cruisers which, anchored in the port of Barcelona. It offers terrace, pool, spa and a lot more for a great stay in family or for business..
Drassanes Metro Station, providing links to the rest of the city, is just 500 metres from the hotel.Rooms : 291.
I had an amazing two-night stay 💯 at this hotel before our cruise. The room was very spacious and the bed was really comfy 🛏. Even though our room wasn't ready when we arrived, they asked us to go upstairs to the rooftop bar 🍹 for a drink and the view was totally worth the wait 👏. The staff were so friendly too 😁. We had breakfast on the last morning and although it was a great choice, it was quite expensive 😕. All in all, this hotel had all the amenities that we could ask for, and it was in a superb location 📍.

We recently stayed in a hotel close to La Rambla and the Metro Station, and it was great! It was only a few minutes walk away, and the open-top bus stop was also close by. All the staff were friendly and helpful, and the room was fantastic with an amazing view from the balcony. Breakfast was also enjoyable. In sum, we had a wonderful stay! Thank you.
This hotel provided great facilities for anyone visiting Barcelona. The rooms were spacious, clean and had great temperature control. The bed was comfortable and beverages were provided. The bathroom was the highlight - it was tiled and featured a multi jet shower and bath with spa functions. Breakfast was served with a wide selection, and those with gluten intolerances were well catered for. The pool was on the roof and a little small, and the opening hours left something to be desired. The gym was air conditioned and had good equipment, and overall the hotel was modern and clean. It was close to the city and beach locations, so it certainly suited my needs.
I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. From the get go, I didn't think this establishment was worthy of being classified as a 5-star hotel. I offer a fair review based on facts rather than assumptions. Firstly, the bathroom had an awful smell due to a lack of ventilation and no windows that could be opened; this increased the humidity in the bathroom and the room. Secondly, the corridors on the 6th floor where we stayed had a strong smell of hash/marijuana, which was somewhat understandable given Barcelona's relaxed attitude towards the drug, however it should be taken into account that guests may suffer from respiratory problems. Thirdly, the hotel seemed primarily full of commercial or event-related guests, with private guests not being given the same attention or care. Finally, it seemed the hotel paid no attention to maintenance, with many broken appliances going unfixed throughout our stay (e.g. closet, training machines). The plus sides of this hotel were its location and the breakfast offered. Photos were taken to document the issues experienced.
Average stay, nothing out of the ordinary. We stayed here as it was the closest to the cruise ship we had just come off. It cost us £200 for one night. Nothing spectacular about it, just a basic place to lay your head. It was literally on the port, though the location was good, a 15 minute walk to La Ramblas. If we hadn't been on a cruise, we would've stayed in a different hotel closer to the centre. There were plenty of cheaper options closer to the centre, this one being one of the more expensive in Barcelona. Check in was at 3pm, but they let us move to another room that was ready earlier so we could check in, and they stored our luggage for us until then. The pool area was a let down. The pool was tiny, just like most of the other ones in Barcelona's hotels. It didn't open till 11am, which seemed a bit late. We had some drinks and food on the roof top, where the pool was. It was nice and the service was friendly.
We booked a Superior Room, and it was big and clean, impressing us when we got to the room. The walls were thin, so we could hear other doors slamming. Someone even tried to come into our room at 2am, but thankfully they noticed they weren't in the right place! We could also smell cannabis at certain points in the hotel. The only downside to the room was that the TV was positioned in the middle of the room and not in front of the bed, making it difficult to watch TV while lying down. The mini bar in the fridge didn't include anything for free, just some small juices and waters, which we felt should have been complimentary for the price. We had room service available, but there were no menus in the room, you had to scan a code online to get the menu.
We had breakfast included, it was pretty standard, with pastries, teas/coffee's, meats, cheeses etc, it was a help yourself buffet. There was even a small selection of gluten free products. In terms of the local area, it was right on the port. If you come out of the hotel and turn right, then after a couple of lefts it takes you to La Ramblas. It's a 10 minute walk to the bottom of La Ramblas, 30 minutes to Plaça de Catalunya, 1 hour to the Sagrada Família and 30 minutes to Platja de Sant Sebastià beach.
Overall, I'd stay here again, but only if we were using the port for a cruise, otherwise I'd stay closer to the town centre for sightseeing.
