Reservation information for the Hotel Diagonal Barcelona
I don't think you can fail to be impressed when you walk into the Silken Hotel Diagonal Barcelona. Such is the tranquil atmosphere and the beautifully thought out design elements which work together to make a streamlined, contemporary hotel. The hotel is in the heart of one of Barcelona's important business districts and next to the un-missable gherkin-shaped Agbar Tower.

Hotel Facilities

The first thing you will see as you walk into hotel Diagonal is the neon-bright Bombay Sapphire display in the hotel lobby bar. Then to your left is a lounge area with computer and printer.

Follow the snaking reception and you will find another lounge area furnished with 60s pod chairs and other design classics. The hotel's restaurant which serves international, Catalan and Basque specialties, is at the end along with the Tecla Café. The swimming pool can be found on the roof terrace which has views over to the Agbar Tower next door and all the way to the Sagrada Familia and beyond. There is also a small snack bar next to the pool.

The hotel has a car park with 90 spaces open 24 hours a day.

In a nutshell

Silken Hotel Diagonal Barcelona is a top-class, design-laden gem of a hotel. Mostly used by business people but would also be good for tourists who wanted to be a bit away from the centre of the city. The staff are charming and professional and will make you feel welcome.
