Stayed 27 to 29 May 2013, This was a business trip with the added value of taking in the fantastic sites and food that makes Barcelona so special.
The Hotel is just a few meters from the main road La Rambla (my colleagues are Catalan so I won't use Las Ramblas) the streets are very narrow as can be expected in the Old Town.
The entrance and lobby areas are very clean and well lit, the staff are very pleasant and helpful.
My room (205) was a good size, I know the room that a colleague had (206) was smaller, the room is well laid out with a large bed that is comfortable, a fast responding Air Con system, wall mounted TV and plenty of cupboard/worktop space.
The bathroom is a very good size with a large shower area and kitted out with the usual NH hotel group toiletries.
There is a room safe and fridge/bar, good to have.
The dining area is in the lower ground area, the table layout is spot on, there is plenty of space between tables, the food/drink choice is excellent as is the quality, again the staff are very pleasant.
I will be staying again.
I must confirm a point relating to the area and not the hotel! You will have most probably heard about the "PICK POCKET" problem, my colleague had €300 in notes and his hotel card stolen from the front right pocket of his jeans, he was bumped into by 2 men, 1 young the other quite old, he then checked his pocket to find the contents missing, he turned and ran after the 2, they stopped and gave the money back with the card.
He was very fortunate, his wallet and phone had been left in his room, otherwise they could also have been taken.
Please! take as little as possible with you on to the streets.
