    “Ideal for short working break”

    Stayed for three nights mid-week. Room clean and comfortable with good shower. Breakfast is ok, and for €12 not a rip-off (though plenty of places nearby for more traditional Spanish fare). Did not eat in the hotel, though colleagues ate from bar menu and were pleased with what they ordered. Good location close to beach, and relatively easy taxi ride into town. Also 700m from an underground station, which connects easily into town. Be wary of the swimming pool photos - more of a large bath, than a swimming pool.

    “great place to stay for a conference”

    it felt like a retreat to wake with that beautiful view. would have loved to be able to meditate at dawn on the pool terrace, but it stays closed until 10am so that guests with nearby rooms are not disturbed.

    “A very nice hotel”

    I stayed during one week in this hotel on the occasion of a scientific conference in Barcelona. I got a very nice impression from start at the reception and it held the whole week. Very nice breakfast, clean and quiet rooms a very comfortable bed and a large and functional bathroom.

    “City break September 2017”

    We booked to stay at this Barcelona city centre hotel for a five day city break in September 2017. We chose this particular hotel as we did not want to be located in the city centre and we wanted a little bit of peace and quiet, but still to be located within easy reach of the centre.We were not disappointed. it is located some twenty five minutes walk north west along the coastline from Port Olympic, and is also within east reach of the City centre Tourist bus route, with a stop located about 100 metres from the hotel entrance. Whilst there is a road located near to the front of the hotel, noise is not an issue as we had a sea-front view room which looked over the road. There is a main arterial road located beyond this road and before you reach the beach access, the arterial road is set down underneath the level of the hotel road and beach access, so is again not an issue. It is quite safe to cross over the arterial road by bridge and does not spoil the sea views, so it is barely noticeable. The hotel entrance looks a bit like an office complex and the reception area is a bit spartan and could do with an upgrade, but it is adequate and the staff are more than happy to make your stay a pleasant one. We had a slight delay at reception as they could not locate our booking, but eventually they did and upgraded our room as a result of the delay. There are stairs and lifts to all floors accessible from reception area, although no one offered to carry our bags or greeted us at the doors. The rooms are adequate with a good style of decor. There is a mini-bar kettle with tea and coffee available in the room. T.V. with very limited UK channels.( not that you travel to Barcelona to watch TV!) We did not use the restaurant, we chose to eat elsewhere. There are several Tapas bars / restaurants within a short walk / stagger all offering a wide range of fare and reasonably priced given you are not in the city centre area. My wife used the on site gym. The facilities are adequate enough although they could do with an upgrade. The Wellness centre was a disappointment as the sauna / steam rooms are only working late in the day and not throughout the day so your chance of using them is limited and not in keeping with a 24 hour hotel. The staff are multi-lingual and will do as much as they can for you, if not they will find someone to help.The staff were a little unaware of the fact that on day of our stay was a Bank Holiday in Barcelona and that the tourists busses stopped running in the early afternoon and not as usual until 21.00hrs. So it was a good choice that we chose not to use the bus that day otherwise it would have been a very long walk back to the hotel. We would recommend the tourist bus service as a way of seeing most if not all of what there is to see in Barcelona. We purchased a two day ticket, with a slight discount from the hotel. There are three routes around the city and our hotel was located on one of these inter-connecting routes, so it was merely a short wait for a bus and then off to see the sights etc. The routes will take you all around the city, its just a shame that you have to pick-up the same route and travel around the rest of the city before you get back to where you started. They are popular but you can get on / off as many times as you like so it is a great way to see the city. We did not do everything and we will certainly be re-visiting in due course. Our advice is to plan your itinerary and be selective of what you want to visit as there is so much you wont have time for everything.

    “Bathe at the beach- the water will be warmer”

    I'm here for a conference, after nearly 10 mins running the shower, the temp was slightly above luke warm, PLUS the water would not drain in the bathroom sink. Called the front desk and I was told to run the water for 5 mins (already done). 1st floor room facing the water was noisy at night (it was Wed/Thurs), the room service was mediocre. The front desk team was friendly and the conference team accommodating but unfortunately these can't make up for my backed up sink and cold shower.

     Dear Lisa, Firstly we would like to thank you for taking the time to share your impressions regarding your recent stay at our Occidental Atenea Mar hotel. It is only through feedback such as yours that we are able to maintain and improve upon the service that we provide to our guests. Please accept our sincerest apologies for the imperfections you describe in your review, I take this opportunity to inform you that the first floor rooms located on the right hand side of the hotel exceptionately it takes a bit longer to warm the water up due to the distance with the mail building, that is why you might leave the water running for a while. Sorry for the inconveniences this may caused you. We have also taken good note of your remarks on the room service expériences and sincerely lament reading that we fell short of your culinary expectations on this occasion, our room service menú offers a wide array of both local and international delicacies to cater for all diet requirements and please the most demanding palates, this is why we are sorry to read that we were not able to conquer yours and will make sure to discuss your critics with our team. On the other hand we would like to thank you for your kind words towards our staff, especially regarding the reception and the conference team. As all of them work very hard, striving to surpass guest expectations, we will definitely pass on your satisfaction with their services. They will surely celebrate that you wrote that they were very nice and most helpful. Once again, many thanks for your help to get to know the points where we can still improve the experiences of the ones that come to visit us and we truly hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back on your next visit to Barcelona Best regards, Occidental Atenea Mar Team

    A discount* or promotional code (also appears as “promo code”) is a combination of letters and/or numbers that gives a discount on the normal rate. If you have a discount code, enter it when booking and you will receive a discount on your booking. Once you have entered this code, the prices shown in step 1 of the booking process will already include the relevant discount. 

    The discount does not apply to prices on extras and/or extra services, neither does it apply to prices on last available rooms. You can only apply one discount code per booking which will only be valid at the time of making your booking.** 

    The maximum amount of accumulated discount will be at most 25% off the rate for hotels in Latin America and at most 20% off the rate for European and Mediterranean hotels. It is possible to combine a discount code with a special discount*** (discounts when you book multiple rooms, senior, resident, millennials, large families, etc.) and the discount for being a my Barceló client. 

    *Barceló reserves the right to accept the application of advertised discounts. 

    **The application of the discount code is not valid upon arrival at the hotel; the discount is only applicable at the time of booking. 

    ***The hotel will request to see valid official documents to verify compliance with the conditions for the discount codes and special discounts. In the event of not providing valid official documents or non-compliance, the hotel reserves the right to charge the amounts that were deducted from the original reservation.
