About The Gates Diagonal Barcelona

Design hotel with rooftop pool and bar, next to Torre Agbar

Easy metro access

The Gates Diagonal Barcelona places you on Avenida Diagonal next to Torre Agbar, Barcelona's landmark, 38-story skyscraper. Traveling around the city is easy with the Glòries Metro Station and a tram stop located within a 5-minute walk of the hotel.


You'll be a 3-minute walk from Jardins de Ca l'Aranyó and a 20-minute walk from the beach, so it's easy to soak up the sun.

Rooftop terrace and pool

The rooftop terrace and seasonal outdoor pool are perfect for enjoying cocktails and panoramic views of the city, and the bistro serves international fare. A breakfast buffet (surcharge) is available in Tecla Café, and in winter you can relax with a drink in the trendy lobby bar.

WiFi, satellite TV

Guestrooms offer essential comforts like free WiFi and satellite TV, plus room service. All rooms feature the hotel's signature contemporary design and sleek lines, while some include large windows with views of the city and landmarks like Torre Agbar and Sagrada Família.

    The stay was great, fast check in and near by the metro so good forms to catch any transportation. With the glories mall in front your also a walk away from a nice supermarket as well. Highly recommend to stay ! However, the rooftop bar wasn’t open during my stay it’s open during the summer in June wish this was communicated since I was looking forward to the views with some drinks.

    Value stay in a stylish property.
    The hotel staff goes above and beyond the hospitality standards. Very pleased with room, rooftop pool area, restaurant and night bar outside. Complimentary water and food was provided after room problem which was fixed immediately and we were upgraded. Our view from the window was postcard type. I loved the transport options available as well.
