Hotel Barceló Atenea Mar

Page Content

Barceló Atenea Mar Barcelona Hotel
This is quiet charming hotel. Well placed looking straight out across the road and onto the beach this hotel is far less business-like than many of it's neighbours. It's the location right next to the beach, and some little touches that make this unassuming 4 star hotel worth a look.

Hotel Barceló Atenea Mar Barcelona Facilities

The Hotel has one restaurant that looks out onto the promenade, good for people watching. The food is varied and international, for example some of the specialties are crab risotto in cream of prawns, chicken and king prawn surf and turf, and beef sirloin with fried foie.

There is a cyber-café where you can check your emails whilst casually sipping on a cocktail. You can wind down after a hard day in the hotel's gym, or maybe you would like to hire one of the hotel's bikes to ride along the beach front. The hotel also has a small postbox out the front of the reception, and a car park to fit 77 vehicles.

The rooms have been decorated in pure white to give that "by the sea feeling", and the colour also serves to make the bright and airy. The rooms all have air-conditioning, satellite TV, a safe and mini-bar. There is Wi-Fi and room service available too.

Hotel Location

Platja Nova Mar Beach
Platja Nova Mar Beach

One of the best features of the hotel is that you just need to cross the road and you are on the beach, and a lovely beach it is too, Platja Nova Mar Bella. The metro stop is Selva de Mar which is a 15 minute walk away. The metro will take you into the city centre in 20 minutes. You are near to important conference centres as well as a 5 minute walk from a large complex called Diagonal Mar which houses restaurants, cinemas and shops a plenty.

Facilities in the location of the hotel

There is a pharmacy just next to the hotel and if the restaurant isn't to your taste why not go to the Chinese at number 36. There are cash points and a supermarket close by at Diagonal Mar, though if you don't think you can take that then take any of the roads leading in from the beach and you will find small mini-markets and newsagents.

In a nutshell

A perfectly pleasant hotel for your stay in Barcelona. Views of one of the nicer beaches in Barcelona certainly help, but the hotel itself is comfortable, relaxed and provides good services. It is suitable for business, and in fact is a good option if you don't want to stay in a huge corporate-style hotel, and appropriate for tourists as well.
