We recently visited NH Collection Barcelona Podium in late October 2017 for 2 nights. The hotel is in a great location, only a short walk from Placa de Catalunya, which is the main city center. Our room had a balcony and was very clean. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful, and we really enjoyed relaxing on the rooftop by the pool with a book. The pool was open, however, it was still a little too chilly for a swim. We had a later flight on the day we had to check out and the hotel offered to store our luggage for us while we went shopping. We would most certainly recommend this hotel.
