The Pullman Skipper is a contemporary hotel near Barcelona's beaches. Rooms are on the large side and have contemporary decor, floor-to-ceiling windows, and in some, terraces. Bathrooms are a standout feature, with large vanities, separate walk-in showers and soaking tubs, and towel warmers. The range of hotel features is impressive: two outdoor pools, including one on the rooftop, a small spa, and a variety of dining options. The lobby is airy and inviting and the rooftop bar has great views. While renting towels for the beach can be a bit of a nuisance, this hotel is near the metro for easy access to Barcelona's sights, and 24-hour room service is on offer.
On the outskirts of the Gothic Quarter, near the water in La Ribera
La Ribera is similar to the Gothic Quarter, with its gorgeous, centuries-old architecture and narrow streets. Stunning stone and wood buildings tower over skinny cobblestone streets lined with designer boutiques, tiny restaurants, and hole-in-the-wall cafes.
Stagnated for years, La Ribera (and El Born, its "neighborhood within a neighborhood") is now one of the hot spots in town, where locals mingle with fascinated tourists in bars and taverns housed in 18th-century buildings. El Mercat del Born, a beautiful glass and iron market built in the late 19th century, has some of the most incredible ruins in all of Barcelona, and 14th century Santa Maria del Mar Basilica is not to be missed.
The Pullman Barcelona Skipper is near the water, within walking distance of the beach and some sights. However, many of the top Barcelona sights are a 25 to 30 minute walk from the hotel, but the metro is close by for quicker access.
