Quick access to the beach and Barcelona's international conference centre (CCIB), for business travellers are the some of the best points of this hotel. The hotel is luxurious and high quality and is perfectly equipped to cater for every type of tourist.
What has the Hilton Diagonal Mar Barcelona not got is the question! There is a good-sized outdoor pool (seasonal) with Brisa Pool Bar And Terrace with relaxing views. There is also a children's swimming pool. There is disabled access, Wi-Fi high speed internet connection and a baby-sitting service if you feel like a break. The hotel is happy to store your luggage in the hold room, and there is a tour desk to help you if you want to go sight-seeing or book a tour. Also there's is a handy currency exchange.
The Hotel has a restaurant called Indigo which serves healthy Mediterranean-inspired cuisine. If you don't want a full meal then head to the lobby where you will find the Pistaccio Lobby where you can have a cocktail and some tapas. Kosher food is also available (on special request).
The business centre is comprehensive and consists of 14 meeting rooms and conference facilities, a ballroom accommodating up to 1000 delegates and a large terrace for cocktails and dinner. The business centre has a photocopying service and video conferencing facilities are also available.
The Hilton Diagonal Mar has an impressive 433 rooms, all finished to the highest standard. The rooms all have self-controlled air-conditioning/ heating, Satellite TV, a mini-bar, and safe. In the bathroom you will find a hair dryer, bathroom supplies including a robe and a bath and shower. The rooms all have relatively good views because of the height of the hotel, although the sea-facing rooms are preferable.
The metro stop, Maresme Forum is a 5 minute walk away, from there you can get the metro into the centre of the city in 15 minutes. The location of this hotel is excellent as long as you don't mind not being at the centre of the action. The Forum area in which the Hilton is situated is a new district but has already got good facilities for the tourist. Next door to the hotel is the modern Diagonal Park which is full of water features and stainless steel piping - if you don't like modern design this is not the area for you. Just opposite the hotel is the new and impressive Diagonal Mar complex which encompasses food, shopping and entertainment of every sort. If you want to escape to the beach it is a short 5 minute walk away.
Everything that you may need during your stay is opposite at Diagonal Mar complex, it caters for business lunches as well as for bored children: In the complex you will find cash points, a cinema, a hyper-market, playgrounds, a terrace with a variety of food serving establishments and 240 shops!
If you want to let your hair down at the end of the day and indulge in some night-time entertainment then take a short taxi ride (there is a taxi rank just outside up the road) to the Olympic village which has a vast array of classy-and also not so classy bars and clubs.
You can either arrange a private transfer or minibus shared transfer.
Private Transfer A private transfer is dedicated for you and your party only. The driver will be waiting at your arrivals gate holding a sign with your name on it. Your driver will assist you with your luggage to your own private vehicle and you will be driven directly to your hotel.
