Hotel Front Maritim
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Not bad hotel for business travelers, small but clean rooms.Staff if friendly, however a bit slow ( but ir is summer time in Spain, so no surprise ;) )Breakfasts are rather narrow not proposing wide variety ...Price is higher than it should be for this type of hotels...
I had a very bad experience with this hotel staying 7 days. Most of the worst customer services you will ever get especially senior managers of the hotel are not helpful and rude. They look tired and they totally dont want to work, it looks like if they are making favours to the customers by replying. If you booked this hotel just cancel it as it will ruin your holidays which you have worked so hard for. They make your stay stressful and without any services at all. And its not that close to the centre - you still have to get a taxi to the centre - by walk it will take you at least 50 min. There is no such balcony as on the picture- all you get is one small window looking outside. So don't even rely on their pictures on the website. Basically you will flush your money for no service, not great room, not great view, breakfasts has no choice at all, very poor. Prices are too high for such place. Absolutely waste of money!
We had a nice view of the Mediterranean from our smallish 5th floor room. We wound up in that room because the hotel could not get the internet to work in two different rooms on the second floor in the front of the building. Our bathroom sink backed up a few times, and I had to ask for a plunger to dredge up some amazingly diverse slime and restore the flow at one point. The breakfasts were mediocre although the fresh fruit and yogurt were OK.
I stayed at the Front Maritim a few times in the last few years. It is 10 minutes' walking distance to the Convention Centre, so great if that is your reason for staying there. It is also 5 minutes to the beach, just across the road. It is far from the city centre, but you know that in advance. There are beautiful rooms (those with sea view, especially those with a terrace at the top floor) and not so beautiful rooms. If you are in a low floor and do not have a view, they are pretty grotty. Very simple décor, no wardrobe, few coat hangers - pretty unusable -, no drawers, spectacularly few power points. Very, very basic for a four stars.
We stayed for one night only at the end of a cruise before flying back to the UK. We chose well for the location just beyond Port Olympic was all we could have hoped for. The Tourist City buses stop across the road and a Metro Station is less than ten minutes walk. The beach is about 50 metres away. Spotless and friendly staff but the real surprise was the exceptional breakfast for an unbelievable 9 euros. What great value as was the evening meal in the restaurant. Those staying in Barcelona who want to be out of the City would be very well advised to give this hotel serious consideration. Our prediction is that you will be as impressed as we were.
