Found it here:

Didn't find the exact location, though...

According to:

https://www.starwoodhotels.com/fourp...ll/detail.html

The address is Avenida Diagonal 161-163, which points to a rebrand of the Hotel Amrey Diagonal

Not where I was hoping it would be - although at least it will be a more affordable option than Le Meridien or W

Thanks for posting this.

Its actually quite an interesting location on the corner of La Rambla de Poblenou a smaller/quieter version of the well known Las Ramblas in central Barcelona with quite a few outdoor dining options. Metro access is good and there is a shopping centre with a huge Carrefour Supermarket almost on its doorstep. I stayed last week at the Holiday Inn Express nearby and really liked the local atmosphere of the area.

There's a link at the bottom of the page there for the Le Meridien Ra Hotel Beach & Spa. So I'm guessing that these properties have the same owner.

4 points Barcelona Diagonal - opens 5 October 2011

Anybody know anything about this opening?

Great to see a new hotel in Barcelona but this was out of the blue (for me at least..)

Although it says open on 5 october no prices are yet available for november...

Surely not opening in 3 days time...

its a refalg from what others have posted

Seeing the location it looks worse then the Ws, it would hav eto be a cat 2 or dirt cheap for me to go back to that arae. Did it for my last night at a HEX its way out of the loop

IMO cant beat Le Meridiens location, I prefer it over the Ws, its just nice being able to walk out of the Hotel and bam be in the smack of things w/o having to use any transport. But if the price is right I can be lured towards it

Did you know it was opening NOW as well the 4 points??

Le Meridien I agree - amazing location.. I go with a car though and parking at the W is easier (although not too difficult with Le Meridien...)

I don't have anything to draw from in this regard. I get emails sent to me when a new hotel is going online and none have been sent regarding this one yet.

The location is bad for sightseeing but can be convenient if you have to work in that part of the city.
The location of the W is not good either but I guess that the views from the hotel compensate it.

I actually quite like the location of the W - walk 500 metres and you are in a nice area - great if you have a car (great parking)

Now on the website says teh 4 points is opening on the 6th of October...

Boh!!!

Hi terminalfive,

Barcelona is a small city. If you walk 500 meters normally you can always find a nice area, regardless of where you are staying.
Nevertheless and as you mentioned on an earlier post, LM and hotels in the Paseo de Gracia area are unbeatable for sightseeing.
