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..

During my recent visit to Barcelona, I stayed at a hotel near La Rambla. The location was chosen based on its reasonable prices and its close proximity to the famous street. However, upon arrival, it was clear that the negative news coverage of Barcelona's decline was accurate. I was relieved to have avoided the overpriced luxury hotels in the area that were surrounded by urban decay. One thing that was not clearly stated on the website was the hotel's relationship to the adjacent buildings. While it is part of the World Trade Center complex, it is actually in a separate building facing the courtyard. This was not an issue for me as I didn't spend much time in the room, but it is worth noting. The room itself was clean, comfortable, and well-maintained. I didn't experience any noise or pollution during my stay, likely due to the recent ban on cruise ships in the area. The fitness center was also impressive compared to the other hotels I stayed at during my trip. I gave this hotel a four-star rating instead of a five because of its inconvenient location and lack of a direct view of the harbor or sea. It was about a half-mile from La Rambla and even further from the nearest shopping area, which seemed to be filled with tourist traps. There were also limited options for groceries in the area, aside from small convenience stores. It took me some time to figure out the best way to get around, which ended up being a bus to the metro system. The closest supermarket was over a mile away.
I cannot say enough positive things about our experience at the Eurostars Grand Marina Hotel GL in Barcelona. The exceptional service provided by the staff truly made our stay memorable. I would like to extend my gratitude to Edgar and Lejandro at the piano bar for their outstanding service and warm hospitality. Additionally, a special thank you to Emilia and the breakfast crew for going above and beyond to make our stay even more special. The hotel's location in the city was perfect and we were able to easily walk to all the main attractions. Thank you to the entire team for making our stay unforgettable!
I recently had the pleasure of staying at the Eurostars Grand Marina Hotel GL in Barcelona, and I must say I was blown away. This was actually my second time staying at this hotel, as I had previously visited about 15 years ago and was still raving about it. My recent stay, from December 22nd to 25th 2023, proved that this hotel has not lost its touch. The location is truly unbeatable, situated at the end of the Ramblas and the beginning of the Ramblas del Mar. Not to mention, my room had a stunning view of the sea and the iconic bridge. Upon exiting the hotel, you will be greeted by the statue of Columbus, and from there you can easily access the beginning of the Ramblas. For a scenic walk, I highly recommend strolling down Passeig de Gracia, where you can admire beautiful theaters, buildings, and the famous "casa"s all the way to Casa Fuster. The reception service was excellent, and although there is no concierge, the staff were incredibly helpful in providing information for exploring the city. For a relaxing evening, the hotel has a lovely restaurant on-site, perfect for a leisurely dinner. And the breakfast, just like any 5-star hotel, was top-notch. While the parking may be a bit pricey at 30 euros per night, I found it to be extremely convenient and well worth the cost. Plus, with the hop-on hop-off bus being so convenient in Barcelona, having a car may not even be necessary. Overall, I can confidently say that I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this hotel and I absolutely love Barcelona. I can't wait to come back and visit more frequently in the future.
On our recent trip to Barcelona, my husband and I stayed at a hotel in the Marina. Unfortunately, it did not meet the 5-star standard that my husband had hoped for when he booked it. Despite being at the front of the hotel, we were constantly disturbed by the noise of the ferries. Thankfully, I had packed earplugs. The room itself was decent, but nothing extraordinary, except for a muffin left on the bed in a box. While it was convenient to walk to La Ramblas, we ended up ordering food through an app upon our return. The breakfast, however, was quite enjoyable with a wide variety of options. The bed was comfortable enough and the pillows were nice. Overall, I wouldn't choose to stay here again. We only booked it because of its proximity to the ship and our plans for the next day.
The hotel boasts a prime location, offering both tranquility and easy access to the city center. The rooms were simply fantastic and the breakfast was perfect. The staff were incredibly friendly and accommodating. The hotel offers numerous facilities for meetings and conferences, making it an ideal choice for business travelers. Not to mention, the rooftop terrace was a lovely bonus.
