    I was very impressed by the service, quality and the comfort of the Gates Diagonal in Barcelona. I arrived a bit late as my flight to Barcelona was delayed. I contacted the hotel that I would be in late. I was surprise by the number of staff ready to help me check in, even though it was late. The bartender served me a glass of Cava, and the lady at the check in counter took my documents as I sat on the couch in the Lobby and drank my glass of Cava. My room Key was brought to me and I was explained the layout of the hotel and was given the rundown on the bars and restaurant and what time they are open until. The suite was marvelous. Amazing views of the city. Since I was on LA time, I decided to explore. Anthony, the night security guard accompanied me as I checked out the rooftop terrace and pool. He also told me about the area around the hotel and where I could go for food, drinks, shopping and the sights to see. Everyone was so nice and accommodating my whole stay. The Beer-garden was great. Nice beer and Whiskey selection. The food was excellent. I will stay here when I come back to Barcelona with my family. I was very happy with my stay.

    Fair 4.0
    The check in was easy and we got in our room early. The rooftop patio was also visually nice. However, I certainly was not worth the price of $300 per room! I got a discount with Expedia dollars and was still highly disappointed. The main pictures of the hotel include the rooftop patio and pool. However the pool and patio was closed off for all but 3 hours during the day and night for private events. Seeing as the hotel pictures tout this place as the main draw (and certainly was the only reason I booked here), not being able to use it, was incredibly disappointing and misleading on behalf of the hotel and Expedia. I suggest that Expedia removes this hotel from its website since there is absolutely no reason to stay here while is being booked for private events and definitely no reason to pay $300 or even $200 for this hotel with basically no access to the pool and patio. As well, the pictures are very misleading as the pool is actually about only 5 feet wide by 12 feet long. More than 2-3 people in the pool would not be possible for swimming. This is very deceptive of the hotel to have these pictures and to have it as the main selling feature. Do not stay here.

    The hotel has a lot of potential. The rooftop is pretty cool and I didn't mind the small pool. The drinks upstairs were also great. It's also close to the beach (20 min walk) and the metro station. Unfortunately, I did not like a lot of things: 1. The rooms windows make so much noise, I could hear whenever people in the other rooms next to me would be adjusting their windows. It was annoying - especially during the morning when we were sleeping. 2. Our toilet did not work TWICE. We reported the incident in the morning - came back and it wasn't working. I called reception and they did even remember/know our toilet wasn't working. They sent someone up (he was nice) but couldn't fix it and mentioned someone would come in the morning. I said 'okay' but we had to use the bathroom at the rooftop or downstairs. Annoying but acceptable because we spent most of our time outside. They fixed it the next day but later in the night it didn't work AGAIN. Same reporting process - they take ages to fix things - for a 4 star hotel that the toilet doesn't work? Unacceptable. 3. Staff. I'm not gonna lie there were some very helpful employees but most of them NO. Bad customer service. Did not apologize when I was upset the second time the toilet got ruined and didn't send anyone up. I wouldn't come back again.

    Lushl hotel, great view and even better location
    Second time in Barcelona, first time at this hotel. Location wise I knew it was going to be great because I stayed near by in the Poblenou district the first time round. Airport: don’t waste your money on getting a taxi for €40-50. Get the blue bus to its Catalunya stop (about 20mins journey) €5.60, then get the L1-red line metro to Glories €2.20 - it’s the 4th stop. Cheap, cheerful and easy. Should only take about 45mins. You’ve got a shopping centre right across the street from the hotel with a range of retailers and restaurants. Easy metro journey to other parts of the city including the beach. After nights out on the strip near the beach the taxi journey cost between €7-11. The pool area is beautiful although small so on a sunny day get there early for a lounger. The view is also breathtaking. I highly recommend this hotel for a pit stop in Barcelona. I stayed for 3 nights with my mate. Oh and also really loved the infused water in the reception area. Highly needed after a night out drinking.

    I was VIP upgraded to one of their BEST Executive Modern Rooms on Third floor. It had Automatic pulldown SHADES on both windows allowing you to create a fully dark room. The bed was WIDE and ROOMY and the blankets/pillows very soft. When I asked for extra blanket, no problem. Food and Wine sent to room, great, and Bartender Downstairs, amazing! The way they carried my bags from garage where I parked my Rental to keep it safe and all around a CLASSY / ELEGANT hotel. But best was the ROOFTOP Bar. Views amazing at sunset. Sergio the Guest Srvcs manager personally greeted me at checkout and made me feel like I mattered. I will stay in this HOTEL EVERYTIME I"m in Barcelona and explore other Gates hotel as they seem to really GET CUSTOMER SERVICE. on a scale of 1 to 100, this hotel is a 2000!
