Breakfasts excellent with excellent service and view, nice tappas snacks and drinks in the Club lounge. It is a pretty old hotel.

My new husband and I stayed here the 3rd day of our marriage. We flew in from Atlanta and stayed here for 3 nights. The hotel staff was extraordinary. They were more than polite and went out of their way to help us start our journey into the great city. The lobby is fantastic, again the staff and front desk... More

Stayed over a week at this hotel. Excellent facilities and staff, particularly the Club management and staff. The upgrade to a 'Club' room was well worthwhile. The room was quiet and well-furnished. The bed was very comfortable. Public transportation, like the Metro, is quite close and convenient.

Only stayed for one night but was quite pleased. The hotel is beautiful, fantastic lobby and very nice room. Front office staff was excellent. I was very pleased with the breakfast, though my colleague did not consider it "five star". I was surprised they did not have an omelette station but enjoyed the selection of cheeses and charcuterie. Overall, would... More

We stayed at the hotel nearly 2 weeks. It was comfortable, (and we're very picky), clean, and the staff was excellent. We sought advice from the concierge, Luis, several times and he always took the time to make sure we got exactly what we wanted, only better. We went to the spa several times and had massages and reflexology. Talk... More

A real pleasure to stay at such a great hotel during a 4 day conference. Staff make a hotel great and the staff here are first rate - the the customer always come first. A highlight I enjoyed was the wonderful views at night from the 19th floor. Ask for a high level room. The hotel organised a really great... More

Not the best place to explore barcelona. This hotel is comfortable and clean, perfect if you're on business and have drivers to catch you up. Or if you're in the city just to go to a match at the camp nou, then is perfect. Otherwise BCN has better options for the price.
