We specialise in getting great deals on quirky, boutiquey hotels but after wading through the myriad of options in Barcelona and -- it has to be said -- some scary reviews on Tripadvisor I decided to splash out on top end for a pre-Christmas weekend away. The Majestic is perfectly situated, equipped, decorated and staffed. From reception to restaurant staff did not put a toe wrong and their friendly, can-do attitude lacked any pressure for unending tips.
Some Five Stars appear to be out to milk their customers for every penny and the Majestic is at the other end of the spectrum: free wi-fi, free gym, breakfast included, complimentary and totally unexpected chilled sparkling wine in the room. We had perfect cocktails on the roof terrace served by a shivering Spanish barman to the hardy British and American clientele and then an early dinner in the beautiful restaurant with perfectly judged cooking and service; so relaxing not to have to semaphore waiters.
The location is idea for visiting the best Gaudi sights and at no point did I feel threatened in any way in this beautiful town after some worrying accounts of Barcelona crime. The only downside will be trying not to use the Majestic as a benchmark for other hotels. In the end although it cost a lot more than some other hotels in theory, we got a good deal on a suite on the hotel website and had a picnic style supper to enjoy our lovely room watching TV the first night after a hard day of sightseeing so I am not sure it was that much dearer in the end; worth every euro!
