The Viladomat Hotel Barcelona is located close to the Estacio Sants, in uptown Barcelona. It is a large hotel that is likely to be used by a lot of businessmen. However, it is also close to Avenida Diagonal and lots of Barcelona's tourist attractions. It does not have a shower in the bathroom.
For a more general review of the hotel see our hotel review.
