When it comes to shopping in Barcelona, few places are more fabulous than Diagonal Mar – the new urban development that’s home to the triangular-shaped Fòrum building, ground-breaking recreational park, Convention Centre, Llevant Beach and supersized three-storey shopping mall that packs in all the high-street greats.
While the beachfront proximity sets the tone nicely, it’s the glossy décor and state-of-the-art flourishes at the four-star Hotel Attica 21 Barcelona Mar that truly inspire. Expect fashion-forward yet understated design schemes, floor-to-ceiling windows, and fully-equipped guest rooms.
When you’re not shopping your heart out or seeking sand space at the nearby beach, spend your days lounging on the sun terrace by the rooftop pool or hitting the newly-opened bar for light snacks, coffee and speciality cocktails. Best of all, you’re a quick taxi ride from the heart of the city, should you need to satisfy your Gaudi cravings.
It’s all super-sleek furnishings, wooden fittings and a clever use of neutrals in the 75 rooms, all of which are finished to a high spec. Spacious Premier rooms have a double bed or two twins dressed with deluxe bedlinen, as well as floor-to-ceiling windows and an en-suite bathroom with bathtub. Thoughtful touches include a coffee machine, bathrobe and slippers, and iPhone-compatible high-quality speakers.
Kick-start your day with all sorts of international staples and Catalan-themed specialties at the cool-looking Buffet Attica. For day-to-night chilling, there is the brand new and rather stylish Attica-Bar – a coffee-shop-cum-snack bar with an extensive menu of cocktails, coffee and tea, and light bites that are available daily from 10am-3pm and from 7pm-1am. Room service is also available.
Set 10 minutes from one of Barcelona’s pretty beaches, you’ll be staying in Diagonal Mar – the new district celebrated for its triangular-shaped Fòrum building, ground-breaking urban park and Convention Centre. Must-dos here include shopping your heart out at the supersized three-storey Diagonal Mar shopping mall, and hitting the golden sands at Llevant – the city’s easternmost and newest beach. Further city thrills include bar-hopping at the Olympic Port, marvelling at surrealist art at the Fundació Joan Miró, fuelling your passion for FC Barcelona at Camp Nou, and admiring Gaudi’s dazzling masterpieces at the Sagrada Familia. Hotel Attica 21 Barcelona Mar is a 20-minute drive from Barcelona–El Prat Airport.
How to Get There
Great place to stay for conferences and visits of the city. The hotel is close to the conference center as well as close to the beach and any Metro stations. Rooms are clean, and the breakfast is outstanding.
I had a booking for two rooms for three nights in this hotel, I received an email the day before i was due to check in telling me the hotel had attempted to cancel one of my rooms. On arrival I was told they had overbooked and i could only gave one room, i asked how this could have happened as i had booked 5 months previous? The receptionist said oh my manager just said its a mistake you can have another room 300 meters away. We were given rooms that where dirty dusty in a hotel totally on a different rating to this one. They would bit discuss it or offer any compensation. I have been been treated so rudely in all my years of travel. Its a terrible hotel who do nit even apologize for double booking awful place and staff
We have just returned from a lovely weekend break, staying at Attica 21 hotel. On arrival we were warmly welcomed. The room was comfortable and had all the facilities we would want. We spent evening sitting in the bar/reception and the staff were lovely. Overall a friendly, accommodating and clean hotel. Would recommend.
