Hotel Rey Juan Carlos I
Located in Barcelona´s main avenue, the Diagonal, it has splendid panoramic views over the city and the sea as well as an easy access to the airport and the motorways to Madrid, France and the Mediterranean coastline.

It is now one of the best city complexes resorts in the world, called “Hotel Rey Juan Carlos I – Business & City Resort” thanks to the addition of the Royal Fitness, The Royal Catering, the restaurants and pools located in its spectacular gardens and the state of the art Catalonia Palace of Congresses.

Dining & Restaurants:
There is no other hotel in the city of Barcelona that can offer the guest the choice of 3 swimming pools (one of the them as a summer pool) and more than 25.000 m2 of historical gardens from early 20th century where to relax, exercise or simply enjoy.
During the summer months there is the tempting option of lunch by the full size poolside at the Pool Restaurant. In a relaxed and casual environment, the guest can choose from a large selection of local sandwiches, salads and fish and meat specialties.
Without having to move from the deckchair it is also possible to enjoy snacks, drinks and ice creams. This area offers changing rooms, life guard, comfortable deckchairs, sun umbrellas and ropes; and it is open to hotel guests and visitors.
Opening swimming pool times:
Located amongst the native pines and palm trees in the Torre Melina gardens we find the peaceful pond, half way between the hotel and the Palacio de Congresos also part of the resort.
The 18 metre heated outdoor swimming pool located by The Royal Fitness & Spa remains open all year round and offers the novelty of relaxing at the underwater stainless steel deckchairs that give a light bubble massage. Taking into account the warm weather enjoyed in Barcelona all year round, this pool is used by the hotel guests even during sunny winter days. Next to it we find the Fitness Bar which serves a healthy buffet breakfast option during spring and summer months. This bar remains open for the rest of the day offering an innovative selection of sandwiches and salads.

With a capacity of 2.027 in its main auditorium and 32 meeting rooms, the Palacio de Congresos de Cataluña has been the chosen venue since its opening in 2001 of important international events, congresses, concerts, award ceremonies and corporate events from all industries.
